Let the record reflect that I am a music lover! On the blog here, you may have picked that up as I frequently share songs and write on them. As the holiday season kicks into full gear, and I begin shopping for my coffee lover, I thought to put together a list of gift ideas for those that love music.

Whether they play music or not, having an musical instrument can warm a music lovers heart. Maybe they have always wanted to learn to play the keyboard or maybe they want to have one handy for when their musical friends come to visit. In either case, when not in use, the instrument can make a lovely decor item as well.
Music Related Decor
Speaking of decor, musicians love to decorate their homes with musical trinkets of all sorts. Wall art, picture frames, or other musical trinkets allow for a custom home experience. My favorite these days are art pieces made with song lyrics.
Having a musical instrument is not enough, you need all the things. Think speakers, mics, headphones or maybe even a karaoke machine. I received this gadget as a birthday gift one year and nothing warms my heart more to see my kids enjoying it as well! Whatever can enhance the music listening, creating or playing experience, music lovers will be sure to love it.
Music Note Jewelry
Wearing jewelry is a way for a person to showcase their style (and at times their beliefs) without saying a word. A cute piece of jewelry will last for decades if you choose wisely. Music notes and sound waves are trendy and meaningful for an audiophile.
Music Themed Mugs
A good mug is not just for coffee lovers! But anyone who loves a good hot drink! Tea, coffee, hot chocolate? In the winter months and for those early mornings, music fans will need a good mug just as much as the next person!
Well of course a music lover would love the gift of music! A new CD or music download may seem obvious but people don’t give these gifts like they used to. If you have a sense of their style, consider finding an indie artist and exposing them to new music. A musical DVD will do the trick as well. If you want to splurge a bit, consider concert tickets.
Most music fans like to have a good time. This is not just at concerts but in life in general. Pair music with a game night and you are sure to be onto something!
Music Themed Clothing/Accessories
Clothing, like a nice piece of jewelry, can allow music fans to show their love and support with out opening their mouths. Nowadays there are some really funny t-shirts that music fanatics will get a kick out of.
Don’t underestimate a music lover’s love for books. Just because they enjoy jamming out to some tunes, does not mean they don’t enjoy winding down with a good book. Consider a nonfiction book that brings a scientific explanation to their hobby. You may even find a good biography on their favorite artist. Bonus points for gifting them audible for them to listen to an audio book.
Music Streaming Subscriptions
Chances are if your friend of family member is passionate about music, they likely already have a subscription to some place. It they don’t they like have a free trial about to expire, lol. In any case, giving the gift of a music subscription will give them the opportunity to try a new platform and potentially discover new music. I have been using Pandora since college (circa 2007). I love streaming music on Pandora. Once day I decided to try Spotify and was amazed at not only the new songs but new artists in the rotation.
