Make the music lover on your list want to ‘hold your hand’ this Christmas by giving them one of the great gift ideas below.
A good pair of headphones can make the difference between a moderate listening experience and an awesome one. Help make their favorite songs sound even better by giving them a new set of high-quality headphones. Find out if they prefer over-the-ear or in-ear before you buy. Some people can’t wear in-ear headphones, so you’ll want to make sure they can actually use your gift. Here are a few examples they’ll be sure to love:
Lately there’s been an onslaught of interesting memoirs and biographies written by some of the industry’s top musicians. If the person on your list is into hip-hop, get them Jay-Z’s new book release, Decoded. If they’re more of a rocker, there’s no doubt they’ve been itching to read Keith Richards’ memoir, Life. Or, pick up The Music Instinct: How Music Works and Why We Can’t Do Without It for the intellectual music lover.
Decoded, $18.88; Life, $16.18; The Music Instinct: How Music Works and Why We Can’t Do Without It, $27.61. All from Amazon (See our Amazon.com coupons).
If you know their favorite band or artist, then why not deck them out in music gear? Try a band tee, a comfy hoodie or a cute accessory, such as the Justin Bieber necklace below.
AC/DC Orange Logo Girls T-Shirt, $20; The Rolling Stones Distressed Tongue Logo Zip Hoodie, $50; Justin Bieber Turquiose Logo Necklace, $12.99. All from Hot Topic (see our Hot Topic coupons).
Another great gift idea is a music player. Of course I added an iPod to the examples below, but believe it or not, there are other options out there. For an Apple alternative, try Microsoft’s Zune or a modern day Sony Walkman. For a personal touch, get the device engraved.
Why not give them the gift of music itself? Pick up an iTunes or SIRIUS Satellite Radio gift card. Or, get them a CD. For holiday-related ideas check out our post on the Top 5 Essential Holiday Album Titles.
Sony – Walkman, $119.99, Best Buy; iPod Shuffle, $49.99, Apple Store; Zune, $179.99, Best Buy.
If the person on your list loves to play music as well as listen, get them their instrument of choice. If that’s a little pricey for your budget, a book of sheet music will do just fine. There are many options out there ranging from contemporary artists to classical collections.
Manuel Rodriguez E Spruce Top Classical Guitar, $1389.92; Williams Allegro 88-Key Digital Piano, $347.47; Hal Leonard Beatles Ballads Piano, Vocal, Guitar Songbook, $18.47. All from Guitar Center (see our Guitar Center coupons).
