Some people are easy to shop for at the holidays, and some… notsomuch. I had a couple of you contact me asking for gift suggestions so I’ve decided to do some mini gift guides for different types of hard-to-please folk, all items under $100 with free shipping. Today it’s for the music lover in your life.
1. No matter the recipient’s genre of preference, she likely has respect for the originators. Swissted is a book that takes rock posters from the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s and recreates them through a Swiss modernist edge, creating a collection of farmable prints (or keep intact as an awesome coffee table book) that’s sure to impress. From the Sex Pistols to Sonic Youth, Green Day to Guided by Voices; there’s band art in here that’s sure to please. $30.40
2. I have a portable turntable and I can’t recommend it enough. This briefcase style lightweight turntable from Crosley comes in five fun colors, a cool retro style, and would be appreciated by teens and adults alike. $80.00
3. What do you get the music lover who has everything? The unexpected something that shows you know and respect his passion. These polyresin headphone-shaped bookends would look pretty sweet supporting his music books, or even a stack of vinyl. $70.00
4. Nothing better than a high quality Bluetooth speaker to play your music wherever and whenever. I have headphones from SOL Republic and find them high quality; this little speaker from the brand packs a punch and fits in the palm of your hand. Available in seven bold colors, water and shock resistant, and with an 8-hour battery life, this is a perfect gift for most anyone on your list. $69.99
5. I adore this little iPhone megaphone, it’s the perfect stocking stuffer. Great for the business traveler, this silicone amplifier increases your phone’s audio by 13 dB without the need for cords or batteries and it gets great reviews. $5.28
