I guess some people find it a little daunting and intimidating finding the perfect gift for a musician, but to me it is incredibly fun – just as it’s been so much fun putting together this buyer’s guide for the best presents for musicians.

Whether for a birthday, a Christmas present, graduation, any other holiday or occasion or just because, you will find a huge selection of ideal, thoughtful, useful and cool gifts below – really fantastic ideas for the musician in your life.

If you are in a bit of a rush, and don’t want to read through the whole piece, in the next section I’ll list a few of my very favorite gift ideas

What Is the Best Present for a Musician?

Before we really get started with the gifts, i should be completely clear than when I say “a huge selection” I’m not just whistling Dixie – I am pretty amazed to see other buyer’s guides for the best musical gifts include maybe a half dozen to a dozen ideas, when I had so much trouble not going into the hundreds!

So below you will find a lot of ideas, broken up into a few different categories, but since that in itself might be a little daunting I thought it might help to put together a little mini-guide here.

My general categories for musician’s gifts are:

See what I mean? So you can click on any one of those lines above and be taken to that part of the article, and see a bunch of great ideas, or you can simply read all the way through, but here I am going to list one or two of my favorite gifts for each of these categories – no descriptions or rationale, which you can find below, but just the recommendations themselves.

Best Gadgets and General Gifts for Musicians

Best Jewelry Gifts for Musicians

Best Tablets for Musicians and Sheet Music

Best Headphones for Musicians

Best Speakers for Musicians

The Best Gifts for Drummers

The Best Gifts for Guitarists

oops, I guess that’s three…

The Best Gifts for Pianists / Keyboard Players

Really, any one of these gifts would make a brilliant choice for the musician on your list, but there are a lot more below, ranging from super-cheap to upper crust – well, to be fair, only a couple of items are silly expensive, and they are about the best and most amazing presents I could possibly imagine for a musician – a Roland F-140R Digital Piano, a Martin D-15M Acoustic Guitar, the aforementioned Apple iPad Pro… 

But the super-cheap gifts on our list are also amazing, as is everything in between.

Did I mention how much fun I’m having? I hope you will too, with this 2022 buyer’s guide to great gifts for musicians – so let’s get into it!

Best Tablets for Sheet Music

Back to tech, one of the most thoughtful and useful presents you can get for any musician is a good quality tablet.

They are especially valuable to music makers for their ability to clearly display sheet music electronically – these days almost completely taking the place of traditional paper music – but also fantastic for listening to music and watching music videos, recording and music production work and so much more. And, you know, Minecraft and stuff…

Here are my three top choices, from least to most expensive – but please realize that these are all premium gifts, and even the most affordable of them would absolutely thrill any musician.

Best Speakers for Musicians

A great sounding and high quality pair of speakers is one of the most thoughtful and highly appreciated gifts you can possibly get for any musician, and I am really excited to recommend a few of my favorites at various price levels.

Please note that all of my recommendations are Bluetooth wireless speakers with built in amplifiers, to make sure they will work for anybody and everybody.

That said, if you are certain the musician on your list has an amp or stereo system that they can connect wired speakers to, my best recommendations by far, for premium, mid-range and super-affordable passive speakers respectively, are the KEF Q350 Bookshelf Speakers, the ELAC Debut 2.0 Bookshelf Speakers and the Micca MB42 Bookshelf Speakers – all three clearly as good as it gets at their price level.

Hestra Tallberg Glove - Cork - 9
  • Half pique seam.

So we’ve so far looked at a couple of brilliant portable pianos, and one superb digital piano, but what about the ultra-popular electronic keyboard? Well, for my money the best brand still, after decades of popularity, is Yamaha, and the Yamaha YPT270 is probably their very best value, and would make an amazing gift for any music lover. I also love the slightly more advanced, better sounding Yamaha PSR-E463, though it is more than twice as expensive.
