Top 24 Gifts for Musicians
Great for the modern musician to easily hold any size tablet while reading sheet music or using their favorite music learning app. Highly adjustable and high-quality stand light and sleek enough to be used at home or displayed on stage.
2. High-quality Microphone
Even if your musician is not a singer, a high-quality microphone is essential for anyone looking to make and record their own jams. It’s perfect for sharing their music online, or even just to save for themselves. We suggest the Shure SM58 for its all-around solid quality for the best price.
3. Microphone alternative: iRig for iPhone and Ipad
If a full-blown microphone isn’t what you’re looking for, maybe you can go for a gift that is a little more convenient. iRig creates small microphones for on the go, or home studio musicians. These handy mics plug right into your Smartphone or tablet to provide a high-quality and adjustable recording device.
4.The most useful music-themed keychain and holder
Not all gifts for music-lovers need to be musical. As a musician, it’s fun to bring my passion for music into other parts of my life. I would love it if someone gave me these awesome keyrings. These keychains are made of real amp plugs that plug right into their Fender key holder so you will never lose them again. This includes 4 authentic guitar plug keychains and a sturdy, easy to install wall mount.
5. Record player for the old-school and the new school
Every music-lover should have a way to play all their music whether it be vinyl, or digital. This 40$ Record player not only comes in over 20 great-looking colors, but plays records, CD’s, and can be paired with a smartphone or tablet, so everyone in the family can enjoy music. If you don’t want to disturb the house, plug in headphones for a personal song or two. This gift is a great piece of decor and a vintage fan-favorite.
6. Vinyl Record Coasters
Pair your record player with some amazing record coasters! These unique coasters featuring the greatest legends of all time are sure to bring in smiles and compliments. Coaster are a great way to add a touch of music appreciation to any coffee table or dining room, and I personally I love to have these on my work desk.
7. Launchpad Mini
As a musician, this is the item that has been on my wishlist for the longest. This grid controller allows you to make beats with light-up buttons that you can customize and change. It’s a light show and concert all at home! Its interactive demo allows you to play right out of the box for casual musicians or can be integrated with Ableton Live ( a common music-making program ) and your iPad for a more advanced music-making experience
8. Adorable Wooden Music box with your own song.
This music box allows you to punch in and play your own music. Use the included paper and hole punch to set up your musicians’ favorite jam, lullaby, or wedding song. Or let them make the music themselves! You can also buy paper refills to make as many songs as you like. It’s an adorable sentiment for anyone.
9. Music Notebook
A notebook with blank music staffs is the perfect way to encourage creativity. This high-quality notebook has blank pages for idea-generating, and blank musical staff for writing songs or lessons. Although musical notebooks are often not required for lessons, they are a great way for parents and teachers to teach.
10. Battery operated pocket amp
Don’t let crowded areas or packed schedules get in the way of quick practice sessions. Anyone can use these devices that plug into an electric bass/guitar and a pair of headphones for a private jam session. These allow on-the-go players to go all out without disturbing anyone else. Also makes playing along to your phone or computer fun and easy with its perfect, no-delay response time.
11. Portable drum kit
Have a drummer or wanna-be drummer? A tabletop drum kit is a cheaper, smaller, and quieter alternative to a full drum kit. A digital drum pad also allows for customized sounds and settings that can be easily packed up and taken anywhere. If you have a drummer in your life, this provides a fun way to practice without packing up their whole set.
12. Pocket Operator
Even smaller than a drum kit is this addicting pocket drum machine/ synthesizer. Just one YouTube video can teach just about anyone how to use this awesome music machine. You can even get multiple and hook them together for a larger production, or play around and experiment with the incredibly simple layout.
13. Ticket Stub Diary
That pile of old tickets can finally be displayed and preserved in a special ticket stub diary. If they are known for going to all the best gigs, this is the best way to preserve their favorite memories. This diary has windows to place tickets and photos along with notecards to create a great book of memories.
14. This card game allows everyone to show off their best playlist
Mixtape is a party game meant to be played with everyone’s smartphone booted up to play their favorite jams. The prompt cards provide you a scenario in which you would choose a song. What would I play if I had to fight 20 lethal ninjas? Another One Bites the Dust obviously! This song is great for all ages, and its relaxed nature makes it easy to converse and mix with other people.
15. Pick punch for custom guitar/bass picks
Picks are the number one things that get lost or worn down. A pick punch allows for a pick to be made of countless materials, thicknesses, and patterns. Making unique picks out of old credit cards, driver’s licenses, or any plastic packaging is incredibly easy with this nifty tool.
Ukuleles make the best musical instrument gift. They are easy, small, and fun to display as they come in many different colors and styles. A full starter kit can be as cheap as $40 with an instructional book and can be played casually or as seriously as you want. I believe every musician should give the uke a spin.
17. Thumb piano
Thumb pianos are similarly fun and easy instruments that anyone can pick up. Thumb Pianos are a simple handheld instrument with a beautiful sound and doesn’t require any musical knowledge or hand strength to play, unlike other instruments.
For the little drummer in all of us, pick up a pair of drumstick pens to keep the beat alive at school or work. Whether it be a professional drummer or a persistent tapper, these novelty pens will look great in their pencil holder.
19. Booze and vinyl book
This best seller is all about drinking and jamming. An amazingly designed and photographed coffee table book that teaches you how to pair cocktails and mix drinks with some of the best records of all time.
20. Enamel pin
One of my dearest music teachers always wore a violin enamel pin in every concert, and I always thought that was a nice sentiment. A small pin can be added to a backpack or jacket to show off what your musician is passionate about.
Deck out your music room (or any room) with this awesome vinyl clock. Vintage is all the rage and this stylish clock is sure to bring in compliments.
22. Sound wave print
If you’re looking for some more personal wall decor, look into getting a custom sound wave print. These beautiful pieces of art can be made with voice recordings or full songs.
23. Foot Tambourine
Give your musicians’ set a little jazz with a simple foot tambourine, the light jingle blends in well with acoustic settings and pairs well with virtually any instrument without taking up too much space in their bags.
24. Carrying cases
Possibly the most practical gift you can give any musician, a nice case to keep their instrument and accessories safe is always appreciated. I believe soft cases are preferable because of their easy storage and additional pockets for cords, extras strings, and accessories.
I hope you’re now with your gift
