Whether you are looking for a way to show a loved one you have been thinking of them during a difficult time or celebrate an upcoming birthday or special occasion, you may already be on the lookout for the perfect gift for the music-lover in your life.
Thankfully, the world of music spans so far and so wide that there is no limit to the kind of gift you can purchase – whether you’re on the lookout for concert tickets or even an instrument. With that in mind, here are some of the best gifts for music lovers everywhere.
There’s nothing quite like live music, and even songs from your favorite artists somehow sound one hundred times better when you hear them live. Therefore, concert tickets are always an excellent choice of gift. In addition to their favorite band or performer, keep an eye out for up-and-coming musicians and artists you think they would like so that they can discover new songs and tracks together.
A record player
Technological developments mean that more often than not, we stream new music through our phones (or loudly through our speakers). As a result, products such as record players tend to be bought less frequently – but that doesn’t mean they aren’t an excellent choice for a gift. In fact, music tends to sound even greater when played through a record player, as the quality tends to be produced when played digitality. You can use sites such as Record Player Pro to read the reviews from a range of different record players and accessories, ensuring that you are buying a quality product.
If your friend has always expressed a love of a certain instrument but has never taken any formal lessons, signing them up for a class is a great way to help them achieve their goals. Many famous musicians and artists developed their skills through this kind of training, so who knows what doors you could open for your friend or loved one?
A customized playlist
If you’re looking to treat your friend to a meaningful gift but are working within a tight budget, a personalized playlist is the way to go. The modern-day mixtape, putting together a playlist for your friend is a great way to show that you care and bring a smile to their face. Try not to focus too heavily on songs they already know and love, and instead introduce them to new music, artists and performers. You should also include certain songs or tracks that remind you of your friend or special moments you have shared.
Bring a concert to their home
If due to COVID-19 restrictions, concert tickets are inaccessible to you right now, you can still have fun with your friend and listen to your favorite music by hosting your own ‘concert’ in your backyard. Grab the speakers, put together a killer playlist, or even try your hand at performing some songs yourself (no matter how tone-deaf you might be). This is a great way to create lasting memories.
