Echo Dot smart speakers are great, they really are. How could you not like an AI helper that stands at-the-ready to tell you the weather forecast, your daily schedule, control your smart home tech, and remind you of the name of the actor who was in that movie that one time. In other words, Echo Dot is there for you when everybody else isn’t.
But let’s be real: Echo Dots look pretty boring when left as-is. If you’re a minimalist, that’s totally fine — we don’t want to kill your vibe or anything. But some of us want our smart speakers to have a little more, you know, pizzazz. Some damn moxie.
If you too want to turn your Echo Dot into a conversation-starting statement piece, consider getting one of these fun smart speaker holders that’ll bring some liveliness to your pint-sized assistant and get your nightstand looking *chef’s kiss* in no time.
A cute lil’ llama à la Emperor’s New Groove
Emperor Kuzco may never be able to look at a llama the same way again after what he went through, but that probably isn’t the same for you. You know, because llamas rule.
An angel statue replica that would make even Michelangelo jealous
Statue of David? Never heard of him. Angel statue Echo Dot holder? Now that’s what we’re talking about. Start charging entry into your home like it’s the damn Louvre.
A lucky cat whose sole purpose is to send you endless support
This little lucky cat will ensure that you’re literally just vibing at all times. Morning? Vibes. Afternoon? Vibes. Bedtime? Vibes. Look, it’s waving at you!
Hoo hoo? An owl, that’s who.
Did you appreciate that dad joke?
Hello? You still there?
A stoic lion to stand guard over your nightstand
This one looks like something that would be at the base of a very long set of stairs. Or one of those cool door-knocker things. Anyway, it too holds an Echo Dot.
A badass wooden skull to prove your badass-ness
Channel your inner biker gang aesthetic with this bad boy. Motorcycle and leather jacket sold separately.
A dragon that looks eerily similar to Donkey’s soul-mate from Shrek
Is… is that her? Is that our ruby-scaled queen? (If you’re wondering, it does not breathe fire. Huge bummer, we know.)
A magical unicorn that’ll restore your belief in miracles
Probably better-suited for children — but screw it, if you like fantasy creatures, you should be able to deck out your home with unicorns. Just don’t accidentally impale your hand on its horn while you try to put your Echo Dot in there.
A beautiful blooming flower that you don’t have to water
If you have trouble keeping real plants alive, allow us to suggest a fake one that serves the greater purpose of nestling your smart speaker in its center. No water, soil, or nutrients necessary.
An adorable hedgehog (minus the spikes)
Contrary to popular belief, hedgehogs are actually not rodents. Google it. This Echo Dot holder is also definitely not a rodent.
Minnie and Mickey holders for Disney fanatics
Don’t have a few grand to drop on a trip out to Orlando? These Mickey and Minnie Mouse smart speaker holders may not be the next best thing, or even the next one after that, but they’re certainly a pretty good thing.
A very good dinosaur (the non-carnivorous kind)
Relive that iconic dino introduction from Jurassic Park — complete with theme music right from your Echo Dot. Don’t worry, Brachiosauruses are herbivores.
