Gifts for the Mindful Musician
Many people throw together self-care packages consisting of bath bombs, foot scrubs, and lotions for Christmas. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a singer, throw together a vocal health self-care package! Some items you can grab are
- Throat Coat Tea (the best tea for singers). We recommend the kind with Lemon Echinacea, though you can purchase it without.
- Local honey. Perfect for tea, local honey also helps with any seasonal allergies.
- Humidifiers. You can choose either a full-sized humidifier or a smaller personal humidifier for a desk space.
- Lozenges. We recommend Cepacol lozenges as they completely numb the throat.
Guitar Center is the world’s largest musical instruments retailer. In their stores, you can find Guitars, Basses, Drums, Amps, DJ Equipment, Keyboards, Pro-Audio and more. Maybe your musician friend needs a new piano damper pedal or a pop-filter for a microphone. Grab a gift card from Guitar Center, and they’ll be able to take their pick!
Gift for the Trendy Musician
Beats headphones, known for their stylish appearance, are totally immersive, giving their owner the full listening experience. These headphones are more for leisure listening rather than a professional setting, though many audio engineers have used them (or something similar) for mixing and recording.
If the musician in your life plays live music, we recommend a good pair of In-Ear Monitors. These are high-end headphones that can be custom made for each specific individual by being created from a mold placed into the listener’s ear and typically come with a lifetime warranty. You can find various models from retailers like Westone, 64 Audio, Shure, and many others!
Websites like Etsy offer a lot of custom-made music artifacts such as home décor, jewelry, clothing and more that you can’t find at major retail stores. Search “Music” on Etsy for a wide range of products and ideas!
When you love something, sometimes you want to shout it from the rooftops! Redbubble has a great selection of phone cases, laptop sleeves, stickers, and plenty of other products that will let the world know when someone is into music.
