2018 Holiday Gift Guide for Music Lovers

With the countdown until Christmas officially on, it’s time to get serious about that holiday shopping that you have been putting off. Odds are, you probably started already perusing the aisles of department stores in search of a thoughtful and unique gift for your best pal. But what do you get your music-loving buddy? Another record? Not to worry, we’ve got you covered with the best gift ideas for your musical mate.

Take a look at our top picks:

Victrola 7-in-1

This 3-speed turntable combines the look of a classic record player, with the features of a modern audio system. Not only will you be able to play your favourite vinyl’s, but also CD’s, cassettes and even your library from your phone with its Bluetooth capabilities. The best part about this piece is that it can act as your own personal recording studio, letting you transfer your top tunes from vinyl directly onto a CD.

Crosley Record Storage Crate

Record collectors everywhere can sympathize with each other when it comes to finding a place to store them. Wanting to efficiently save space yet have them on display can lead to hours of arranging and rearranging. Crosley has solved this issue by building a durable storage crate that holds 75 records, sports the Crosley symbol and fits almost all décor.

Beats Headphones

We have all found ourselves wanting to tune out the outside world at some point during our day. A pair of reliable quality headphones can make that want, a reality. Beats headphones being a top seller on the market are noise cancelling, foldable and have a battery life of up to 40 hours on a full charge. They also come in a range of colours to suit any personality.

Custom Guitar picks

Got a funny message for your fellow guitarist? Put it on a guitar pick! These picks are custom made to your liking and can include a message and image. Now those late-night jam sessions will have them reminiscing about your kindness (and perhaps spark some creativity).

Lyric Poster

We all love wall art – especially prints that remind us of our favourite song. Custom lyric posters are a trendy way to spruce up a bland space and add some character. The piece also serves as an excellent conversation starter with guests and shows off your musical side.

Ticketmaster Gift Card

This season, give the gift of performance with a Ticketmaster gift card. This is a foolproof way to ensure that your BFF catches their favourite band, while they’re in town. Who knows, they might even grab you a ticket to tag along with them. It’s a win-win situation!

Coffee Table Reads

Littered with photos, big and bulky coffee table books not only add to a room but give you some inspiration. Specifically looking at biographies, you can now get an inside look to the lives of your favourite Rockstar’s and learn about what life was like on the road.

Shower Radio

We are all guilty of putting on concerts in the shower. This shower radio has AM/FM programming and an aux port for out of shower use. It’s the perfect gift for the friend that loves belting out those power ballads during their usual hygiene routine.

Cassette Player

Taking it the old school route is the best way to relive some golden moments in music. When it comes to recording your own tunes, you won’t need anything more than a cassette. After all, some of the best albums were recorded on babies just like this.

With these gift ideas, you are sure to wow your receiver and be crowned the best Santa they have ever had!
