People who love music REALLY love music. They listen to music, they go to shows, they may even play music. It is a huge part of their life. If you are looking for a gift for the music lover in your life, it can be a daunting challenge if you do not know or love music like they do. Even if you do love music too, everyone’s tastes are unique and their relationship to music is different. Luckily, there are some great gifts out there that will be perfect for any music fan on your gift list. Here are 6 gifts for music fans.
A shower speaker
Music lovers generally have the ability to play music anywhere and at any time. They probably have a great stereo system and maybe even a Bluetooth speaker they can take with them on the go so they can play their music wherever they are. What they may not have, but totally need, is a waterproof shower speaker.
What’s better than singing along to your favorite tunes in the shower? With these speakers, music lovers don’t have to stop the music just because they are getting ready for the day. They also don’t have to chance of ruining a non-waterproof speaker by using it in the bathroom. Cool Things Chicago has a great list ranking the best shower speakers of 2020. You cannot go wrong with any of these great options.
A lamp to set the mood
Music is not just an auditory experience. Sure, you hear music first through your ears but music should give you all kinds of feelings. It taps into other senses as well and music has the ability to put you in or get you out of any mood you are in. To create a warm, calming atmosphere to listen to music in, a Himalayan salt lamp is a great idea.
These lamps, made from rock salt from the Himalayans mountains, not only produce a warm, relaxing light but they also have several mental and physical health benefits as well. They purify the air in the room, can boost healthy blood flow, promote stress reduction and even boost energy.

A vintage-style Record Player
Many music lovers may already have a means of playing old vinyl, but if they do not, this is a gift that will hit it out of the park with your favorite music lover. There is a wide range of vintage-style modern record players available that will not only allow them to play records (which we all know sound the best!) but also give them the ability to do so much more with their music.
In addition to playing vinyl and coaxing the absolute best sound out of them, modern-day record players are now multi-faceted machines that are a dream come true for music lovers. You can find record players that look like they are straight out of the 50s or 60s but do everything you want in a stereo in 2020. These players have Bluetooth connectivity, play MP3s, CDs, tapes, and even allow you to convert your old records into digital music.
Wireless Bluetooth headphones
If the music lover on your list is still using old-school, wired headphones, it is time to upgrade their music game for them. Wireless Bluetooth headphones are incredible for so many reasons. They are lightweight, comfortable, available in a number of styles, and offer you complete freedom to move and live while still listening to your favorite music.
There is a wide range of styles of wireless Bluetooth headphones to consider and you may want to find out what style of headphones they are currently using so you know what they like. You can get large, noise-canceling headphones or small, in-ear earbuds, or pretty much anywhere in between. No matter what style you get, music lovers will love the freedom that comes with being wire-free.
Tickets to a show
If you are stumped on what gift to get a music lover, you can never go wrong with tickets to a show. All music lovers love live music and treasure the opportunity to go and see their favorite performers, singer, or band. It can be a leap to schedule an event for someone you are getting a gift for so the best idea is probably getting them a Ticketmaster gift card or something similar.
If you live in an area where a lot of shows do not come through all that often, consider pairing your gift with a fun road trip to the closest big city where you can see their favorite people. If you really want to go all out, Las Vegas has become a mecca for performers where some of the most sought after acts in the world do long-term residencies, giving people multiple opportunities to see them throughout the year.
Books about music
Music lovers obviously love listening to music but they probably also love learning more about it as well. For almost as long as there has been music, there have been books written about music as well. A great music book is just as rewarding and satisfying as a great song and music lovers appreciate this.
There are all kinds of music books to consider. There are books about music theory and the science and psychology behind music. There are books with music trivia or great picture books documenting music through the years. There is also an incredible number of great books written about seemingly every singer and band in history. You will surely be able to find a book that suits your specific music lover’s taste.
These are just a few ideas for gifts that a music lover will absolutely love. There is also musical clothing, musical home décor, music memorabilia, and instruments that make music. Whatever you choose, the fact that you took the time to consider a music-based gift for the person you know loves music will go a long way and whatever you decide on, they will love it!
