Christmas is coming at us fast in 2021! What will you get for your friend or cousin that loved making beats and won't really like traditional gifts for musicians? Music producers will appreciate modern gifts and edgy designs that you will want to make sure you impress them with. Avoid gifts that have dated designs and gifts that may be too specific like a DAW or plugin that your music producer friend either has already or doesn't want. It's best to go simple and general when it comes to this gift.
Clothing items and accessories that are related to music production will always make a good gift. The key here is to know what the person is familiar with and uses for their production process. If they aren't much of an instrument player and they use MIDI/digital instrumentation, you might not want to get them something with a piano or a guitar on it. It could be a hit or a miss.
For music producers, you want to focus on designs that include music symbols often associated with digital and live instrumentation. As an example, music notes could work well as designs for instrumentalists and music producers. Designs that focus more on sound waves are also a good fit for music producer gifts.
Simple gadgets that all music producers could benefit from work well as a gift. Since you want to avoid major purchases like expensive digital plugins and equipment, you could focus on little gadgets that work well in a recording studio. Many gadget gifts work great for music producers because they are super affordable and can be put to good use.
If you're really interested in the person you getting the gift for receiving a specific and high-cost gift that they could really enjoy for their music career but you don't want to impose on their choices, you could always go for a gift card from a popular retailer. While gift cards can seem like an impersonal gift, a music producer would really appreciate a gift card to a music or audio store, or even something general enough like Walmart, Target, or one of my suggestions below.
Guitar Center is one of the top retailers of music studio equipment worldwide. They are very reliable with online and local buying options for all of your music needs. I find them to be a very reliable source with extremely helpful staff that can guide you along with your purchase if you’re unsure of what to buy. Buy a Guitar Center gift card here.
