Gifts for Music Lovers — 27 Unique Gift Ideas

Life without music is like an unsharpened pencil — it has no point. Imagine Jaws without the theme song. And what would a wedding be without the Bridal March or first dance? Everyone likes music, but then there are people who love music. 

The people who narrate their everyday activities in improvised songs or spend hours scouring Spotify to find new bands. Ever struggled to find a gift that strikes a chord with that person who is always recommending a song you just have to listen to? 

Whether they’re a singer, a musician, or just an enthusiast, here are 21 unique gifts that are sure to make the music lover in your life sing with happiness.

#1 A Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

Perfect for the shower virtuoso in your life! The iFox iF012 suctions to any smooth surface like tile and glass and pairs easily with any device in under 6 seconds. It’s more than just water-resistant–it can be fully submerged up to 3 feet. The battery life is up to 10 hours and fully recharges in under 3 hours. Most importantly it has a great sound quality so their squeaky clean concerts will always be perfectly in tune. 

#2 A Wooden Headphone Stand

So they never lose their headphones when they want to listen to their tunes. This handcrafted headphone stand will keep them above all the desk clutter and ready to use. The base is made from your choice of oak or walnut and can be engraved with their name, initials, and even a logo.

The stand holds any size of headphones. Plus, every time you purchase one of their products, the shop plants a tree. Good for your favorite audiophile and the planet! 

#3 A Stylish Wall Print

Great for the music lover moving into their first dorm, new apartment, or just overhauling their old decor. This personalized print displays the lyrics to their favorite song in a vinyl record design with the title of the song and the name of the artist in the center.

If they’re a songwriter, you can even enter their lyrics in the personalization box for an extra special gift. Otherwise, just enter the title and artist and the shop will source lyrics themselves! Choose the recipient’s favorite color from dozens of options, and even add their birthday or age. 

#4 A Do-It-Yourself Journal

A great gift for the music-loving journaler in your life. The Mixtape of My Life is a guided journal of prompts and questions to help them reflect on the music that has shaped their life. It includes questions like “What was the first record you owned?” It has spaces for them to draw their favorite album covers or draft their perfect road trip playlist.

A great conversation starter, or just a way for them to look back on the important moments in their life and the soundtrack that went with them. 

#5 A Funny Sign

If the only thing they love more than their favorite soundtrack is a good pun, then this wooden sign will be the (piano) key to their heart. The hand distressed paint gives it a rustic and homey look. The sign is available in 3 sizes and two color choices: heirloom white with charcoal lettering or charcoal with heirloom white lettering.

Finished with 2 coats of clear matte lacquer for easy dusting so it always looks sharp. 

#6 Some Music Note Bookends

A perfect way to help your favorite musician keep all of their songbooks neat and tidy. Or for all those thick music theory books that the college music major in your life needs for class.

Made from sanded pinewood, the bases are stained a light chestnut and the music note accents are stained navy blue for a fun pop of color. Your order includes a set of two bookends. 

#7 A Sticker To Jazz Up Their Outlet

Great for the Louis Armstrong fan in your life! They can stick this silhouette of a trumpet player over their light switch or outlet covers to add a bit of personality to any room. Choose from either a soft, flocked velvet or high-quality waterproof vinyl.

Also, great for electronics and easy to remove. You can even order it facing the opposite direction with just a quick note to the seller. Measures 6″ H X 3.8” W. 

#8 A Book That Explains Why Humans Love Music

For the inquisitive types. Written by a former rock musician-turned-neuroscientist, this book explores the connection between our brains and music and argues what your music enthusiast probably already knows: that music is fundamental to the human species. Daniel J. Levitan reveals how to get good at music and why it gets stuck in our brains and our hearts. 

#9 A Handmade Stand

For the music lover who prefers listening to their tunes the old-fashioned way. Help them keep track of where they put their record sleeve down, so they’re not fumbling around for it when they want to switch soundtracks with this record stand!

The base is carved from birch and the acrylic screen is laser engraved with “Now Playing” or any custom message up to 35 characters. It even holds up to 4 record sleeves, so they can make an old-fashioned playlist. 

#10 A “Rise And Shine” Coffee Mug

Great for the audiophile who likes music, coffee, and, like, three people. This 11 oz “Some of my best friends are playlists” mug is 100% dishwasher and microwave safe and won’t fade, no matter how many times they wash it. Each mug is made to order and shipped in recyclable foam. 

#11 A Custom Beethoven Lego Figure

A great collectible item for the classical music aficionado you love. This miniature Beethoven is made from Lego pieces and even comes with his own little quill! You can have him made into a keychain or bag clip, so they can carry him with them to their recitals for good luck or wherever they go. There’s also an option to include a gift box! 

#12 A Musically-themed Pillow

If they dream of rocking out with their favorite band or gracing a Broadway stage every night, this is the perfect accompaniment to their sweet dreams. The pillow is made of 100% linen and the design is printed with a distressed effect for a cozy rustic look. Plus the insert is made from synthetic down to be more friendly to allergy sufferers. 

#13 A Cozy Musical Print Throw Blanket

A subtle musical accent to any bedroom or living room, no matter what the decor patterns. This piano-patterned 2-layer tapestry blanket is made from 100% cotton. It measures 40″x60” and is machine washable. It’ll keep your music lover’s body as warm as their favorite sonata keeps their heart.

It’s even made from eco-friendly materials! Order it here: 

#17 A Funny Bag
