2022 Musician Gift Guide

Pocket Synthesizer

The Stylophone is a miniature synthesizer played with a stylus. Invented in 1968, this tiny instrument was famously played by none other than David Bowie! It features a small, metal keyboard played by touching it with the metal stylus, and recreates the exact sounds it did back in the ‘60s. There is even a switch to add vibrato, along with three retro organ type sound options.

Mini Keyboard

Another way to go mobile with music is this ultra-compact keyboard controller. This accessory is specifically designed for the traveling musician and desktop producers, and features a cluster of production-centric hardware controls, along with a slim-line and ultra-portable footprint. Users can compose and perform with virtual instruments, effect plug-ins, and digital audio workstations whenever they fee inspired.

Guitar Amp Key Caddy

The example we have here is laser etched with the “Marshall” logo, but there are several options portraying several famous amp brands. A little research into what amp the person you’re shopping for has, and you’ve got an excellent conversation piece! What better way to show off their love for their favourite brands?


A great gift or any music lover, turntables like this offer the high-fidelity audio of vinyl. This turntable in particular has fully manual controls with adjustable, dynamic, anti-skate control, variable pitch controls with quartz speed lock, and a balanced S-shaped tonearm with hydraulically damped lift control and lockable rest. Additionally, this turntable also allows users to convert vinyl records to digital audio files with the free MAc- and PC-compatible Audacity software.

Songwriter’s Notebook

This notebook features 50 loose-leaf sheets of high quality paper. Notebooks like this are perfect for composers and songwriters alike.

Fun Guitar Straps

If the person you’re shopping for plays guitar, a fun guitar strap may be the perfect quirky gift! Lightweight and wrinkle-resistant, straps like these easily fit into accessory pockets and look great when they’re put on. This strap features a tri-glide sliding adjustment system, and easily extends up to 65’ in length. A little research can help you find the right size for the person you’re shopping for.

Guitar Holder

Wall-mounted guitar holders help keep your guitars off the ground and safe. What’s more, this guitar holder also keeps picks, straps, tuners, and more safe and in one place. With a little hunting, you can find a holder that matches the style of the person you’re shopping for. This holder is handmade with solid wood, and colored with fire. Guitar holders are great for electric and bass guitars, banjos, ukuleles, mandolins, and other similar instruments.

This is Your Brain On Music

This book, written by rocker-turned-neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitin offers a groundbreaking union of art and science and explored the connection between music and the human brain through its performance, composition, and how we listen to and enjoy it.

Headphone Stand

Everyone could use a little extra space on their desk, right? Headphone stands like this hanger helps keep desk clutter down while also keeping headphones in excellent condition. This headphone stand features a silicone cable holder at the base, and can also act as a phone holder.

Light Bulb Speaker

Okay, we started off this list by saying the music lovers in your life probably already have great speakers. And even if that’s true, they probably don’t have anything like this! This wireless Bluetooth speaker doubles as a light bulb. The dimmable bulb is able to play music wirelessly from all smart devices, and features multiple colors and modes, all controllable with a free app.

With the holiday shopping season quickly drawing to a close, make sure you mark off the musicians on your list with gifts that fit their musical soul.
