Holidays are fun and exciting, but Holiday shopping can be stressful and frustrating. I never know what to buy anyone for Christmas. I try to write a list and select every gift before reaching for my car keys and driving towards the mall. It never works.
I eventually find myself pacing the mall from Bath and Body Works to JCPenney, eventually gorging myself on orange chicken and pork-fried rice at the mall food court. Several times, to her dismay, my girlfriend escorts me, having already finished her shopping, through the aisles of holiday season boutique stores and overcrowded department stores.
Sooner than later, she eventually bemoans our futile quest for the perfect gift, which I have vaguely envisioned in my muddled ambitions. She then, as always, mentions intently “Why didn’t you research/buy gifts online?”
Luckily, this time I remembered that GROM Audio has a selection of products that suit my needs. GROM Audio brings music to car stereo systems through Smartphones and other handheld devices. This simple idea has grown and as they began developing their unique approach to car stereo access.
