I found myself doing some shopping for some friends and family that I would describe as music lovers. And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love music?! So I thought I’d share some guidance I found myself following.
Before you start with gifting, always ask some questions. It’s okay to ask what they like, but I find it even more helpful to ask about their favorite artist or album. This gives you a better idea of the direction you should go with this gift and makes for a great conversation starter too!
Now that you’ve got an idea of what they might like to listen to, here are some more specific ideas.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a music lover, vinyl is always a great option. Vinyl is a great way to listen to music because vinyl has the highest audio quality out of any other format. Plus vinyl is fun, nostalgic, and gives you a great excuse to listen to your favorite tunes.
A vinyl subscription service can be a fun and unique way to give someone access to new music, and it’s a gift that keeps on giving! There are several different vinyl subscription services available, so do your research to find the one that best suits the music lover in your life.
Headphones or airpods are another great gift for a music lover. With headphones, the person can listen to their favorite music without disturbing anyone else. There are a ton of different headphone options available, so it’s important to do your research and find the pair that best suits the person’s needs and preferences.
I always recommend buying headphones from a retailer like Amazon or Best Buy. They both have great return policies in case the headphones don’t end up fitting the recipient’s taste or needs. Don’t forget that gift receipt!
Another option for gifting music related items is an experience like concert tickets or musical instrument lessons! Music experiences are perfect if someone in your life already has all the equipment they need to enjoy their passion. They’re also unique gifts that can be accompanied by more typical presents too.
If there’s a band or artist that the person you’re shopping for loves, see if they have any upcoming concerts in your area. Tickets to a show make a great gift, and it’s something the recipient can enjoy together with friends or family members. My favorite way to find and buy concert tickets is through Ticketmaster. They have a great selection of tickets, and they often offer promotional codes that can save you money on your purchase.
No matter what you choose, the most important thing is to put some thought into it and find something that the music lover in your life will appreciate. Happy shopping!
