Gift idea: The JBL Clip 3 waterproof travel speaker for $45 (save $25)

Wrap up this top-rated speaker for Mom, Dad or a grad.


The JBL Clip 3's built-in carabiner lets you hang it from a backpack, shower head, pretty much anything.


Between Mother's Day, Father's Day and graduations, this is maybe the second-largest gift-giving time of year. With that in mind, I'm eyeballing great deals on items I think would make great gifts.

Like this one: For a limited time, and while supplies last, Daily Steals has the JBL Clip 3 portable waterproof speaker for $45 with promo code CNETJBLC. This is new, in retail packaging. Price at Amazon right now: $70.

Introduced back in 2018, the Clip 3 is about as close to perfect as portable speakers get. The only reason it's not on CNET's list of the best Bluetooth wireless speakers is that its successor, the Clip 4, took its spot. That model offers a couple minor improvements, but it's $70 as well.

The Clip 3 has an attractive rounded design with an integrated carabiner clip and fully waterproof casing. It can play for up to 10 hours on a charge and doubles as a speakerphone -- complete with noise- and echo-canceling features.

You can read David Carnoy's JBL Clip 3 review to learn more. I'll simply say if you're looking for a gift, this is a strong choice.
