If someone you know is a big music fan, there are some great gift ideas out there that will no doubt leave them with a smile on their face. Of course, it all depends on what kind of music they are into, as this will ultimately determine what kind of gift you get them. For example, if they were a metal head a nice metal oriented poster might work. It all depends on their personality, and there is a bit of guess work that goes along with picking out gifts.
Some of the most commonly recommended gift ideas would be items that they might decide to buy for themselves, however you should find ways to make sure that they don’t already have the gift or album that you are thinking of getting for them. CDs, concert DVDs, posters, albums, vinyl, lyric books, collectable memorabilia and the like are all very acceptable gifts for the avid music fan. Try to think of a particular band that the gift recipient likes and base your gift idea around that, you would be surprised how much they will appreciate it.
Especially if you manage to get them an album that they don’t yet have, or a rare collectors item. There is also another approach to take, if the gift recipient happens to be a musician themselves. If they play guitar get them some accessories like strings or a new set of picks, something simple yet practical that they will find useful again over and over.
Straps, capos, string cleaner, or even maybe a new guitar itself would be an incredible choice for any music lover gift. The rule of thumb is to get something that you know they will be able to use, which avoids the “regifting” phenomenon and leaves everyone happy in the end.
