It can be difficult to find a gift for a musician friend, especially when you aren’t that big of a music fan yourself. With enough research, however, you could spot some great finds.
Here are some items your music-loving friend would surely find delightful:
Listening to tunes and melodies isn’t complete without the right set of accessories. Of course, music is part of everyday life for a fan, so a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones or outdoor speakers can be a really good gift.
Take the time to research a bit, though, especially if you’re buying for a musician and audiophile. Make sure that the lows, mids, and highs are all clear. Take their preference into account, as some prefer ear buds while others want headphones.
If the friend you’re buying for plays an instrument or tours with a band, it’s a good choice to give something related to the instrument they play. Among the best choices are a gadget that turns expired credit cards into instant picks, a wallet that has specific pockets for picks, and an extra cable to connect instruments and amplifiers.
As not everyone plays the guitar, do consider giving a pair of drumsticks or a tuner. Other people go a bit high-end, like a small, portable synthesizer, or even a real Theremin.
If you want to go the safe route, band merchandise is your best bet. All you need to do is research on the band your friend loves, and then find a source of band merchandise to give. Often, bands have their own websites set up that feature the things they sell such as T-shirts, vinyl, CDs, hoodies, and other memorabilia. Some people also make custom designs inspired by music, which could make for a unique and interesting gift.
When all else fails, you can always get them a signed album or a pair of new sneakers, especially for those in a touring band. Giving a gift to musicians and music lovers can be challenging, but once you find their area of interest in the melodic spectrum, they’d love you for whatever you give them.
