It may seem a bit intimidating or difficult to buy the perfect present for a music lover – after all, they have their own individual tastes and preferences in music, as in anything else, which can make finding just the right gift pretty tricky.

But it can actually be really easy – and really fun – if you just have a helpful guide.

So that’s what I’ve put together here – a guide to the best gifts for music lovers in 2022, with a wide range of recommendations for birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, anniversary and wedding gifts and a lot more, all ranging from super-affordable to pretty premium and organized in a simple and useful way.

Best Wedding Gifts for Music Lovers

How Can You Find the Best Present for Music Lovers?

One thing I hear quite a bit when people are asking for gift ideas is that they aren’t sure what kind of music the person listens to, and so have no idea how to proceed. And yeah, if you want to purchase them music, or certain other presents, this can be an issue.

That’s why I think the best music gifts aren’t always tied to a specific kind of music. If you know, for instance, that they love Dua Lipa, or Ed Sheeran, or Beethoven, does that even really help? Do they already have the latest album, or the definitive recording of the Moonlight Sonata, or are they just streaming everything anyway?

If you really want to get music for the music lover in your life, I would recommend just getting them an Amazon Physical Gift Card  or Amazon Virtual (online) Gift Voucher – a much more personal and caring gift than people seem to think, and one that allows them to really get exactly what they want.

But I think that there are a lot of other fantastic ideas, some of them super affordable and others more premium, including things for their home, games, shirts, musical instruments, speakers, headphones, weird gadgets and a lot more.

In fact, I’ve come up with a lot of different ideas, some of which might seem just right for a specific person and many of which would appeal to pretty much any music lover. I’ve broken the list into six sections, which include:

You can click on any of the above lines and it will take you right to that part of the gift guide, or you can just read all the way through.

Either way, though, his is a long article, with tons of great gift ideas, so let’s jump right in, shall we?

I can’t make heads nor tails from their brand name, but I do love their cloth napkins, and think the black and white musical notes and keyboard theme would look great on any of the tablecloths above – although if you choose the Musical Plasma tablecloth keep in mind that ZzWwR also makes napkins in a nice mushroom motif.

Speaking of wild sides, the Castle Fairy hippie music comforter is so wild, so colorful and so much fun that I can’t imagine anybody not falling in love with it. If this is a wedding present, and both bride and groom like it, you should keep this fun couple in your life as long as possible!


Musical Glasses, Cups and Mugs

I won’t comment on each and every one of these choices, but have done my best to find wine glasses, cocktail glasses, shot glasses, coffee cups and mugs that are well made and a bit of style. Some are graceful and elegant, some more clever and funny, but I think that music lovers are sure to appreciate any of them.

I will say, though, since it seems to be one of my themes today, that the C&M wine glass set would make a wonderful inexpensive wedding present.

Best Gifts for Music Lovers – Shirts and Socks

There are an endless number of music Ts, and it’s incredibly dangerous territory – imagine not knowing the music lover on your list is a closet hardcore punk fan and you get them a Britney Spears T-Shirt! Or vice-versa, I suppose…

No, let’s not go there. Instead I’m going to include just a handful of cute, pretty and clever shirts that I believe any music lover would love.

And some socks, because everybody needs socks…

There are about a gazillion djembe drums on the market, and most are, honestly, a bit uninspiring, and really miss the sound and the spirit of this most universally appealing of drums. The Meini, however, with its traditional tuning and goat skin head, is the least expensive djembe I’ve ever found that really gets it, and makes a brilliant gift for any music lover.

Fender CD-60S Dreadnought Mahogany Acoustic Guitar

Sale
Fender CD-60S Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar, Walnut Fingerboard, All-Mahogany
  • Solid Mahogany Top with Laminated Mahogany Back and Sides
  • 25.5" scale mahogany neck w/20 fret rosewood fingerboard
  • Chrome Die-Cast Tuners

For a budget guitar, good for a total beginner but equally suitable for advanced players, you can certainly spend a bit less – the Tiger Acoustic Full Size Sunburst Guitar, for example, is as good as i’ve found for under a hundred dollars – but you can also spend a bit more and get the superb sound and top-tier craftsmanship of the brilliant Fender Dreadnought.

Best Gifts for Music Lovers: Audio Gear

The last section in our 2022 buyer’s guide for best presents for music lovers is the one closest to our hearts here at Speakergy – audio gear! In fact, I can’t believe I was able to wait this long…

There are literally thousands and thousands of great speakers, headphones and turntables you could choose from, and sometimes it feels like I’ve listened to and tried every single one of them. Nowhere near, of course, but I am at least able to considerably narrow the field, and here I want to offer a dozen of my very best gift ideas for the music lover in your life.

A truly special gift for the music lover in your life – unless, of course, they’re an Apple person, who will hate the Sonys and must have instead the equally wondrous Apple AirPods Max.

I’m a huge fan of pretty much all of the super-affordable record players Victrola offers, and this Vintage suitcase player is one of my favorites. Despite its size, and its very low price, the Vintage has really rich, full and musical sound, is built surprisingly well and works great. Plus, it’s a suitcase! Well, not a real suitcase, but it sure looks like one. An absolute treasure for a younger music lover, a lovely and thoughtful gift for an older person and, well, pretty great for anybody inbetween too.

I’d also like to mention the Victrola Nostalgic All-in-One Record Player, which is a bit more expensive but has a radio, CD player, cassette deck and record player, a beautiful old-fashioned wooden cabinet and even better sound, and can make a really special musical wedding present for the right couple.

The least expensive table currently made by the legendary company, the Rega P1 is still a pretty expensive piece, but beautiful in every way.

And to close this complete buyer’s guide for the best music lovers gifts, I am going to mention a very important accessory for anybody who plays records – an inexpensive and very thoughtful gift that will make records sound better and last longer – a good record cleaner.

In fact I will include two great products here – the very best cheap record cleaning kit on the market and a premium, ultra-effective record cleaner for the serious record collector or audiophile
