The festive season is rolling around pretty fast, and there are plenty of presents that still need to be bought. For fans of music specifically, it’s been tough to accept the fact that live music has had to come to a halt this year. There’s a tonne of experiences that people have missed out on, whether that’s a general lack of new music to listen to, or not being able to drunkenly sing their hearts out at their local open mic night. So this year, when choosing a gift for a music-lover, striking the perfect balance between experience and novelty is key.
For example, classic items like record players are always a winner in our books, but something like a mini karaoke microphone that can plug into your laptop is a supereasy way to experience a much-loved activity from the comfort of your own home. LPs from their favourite artists never go out of style, but this year, Record Store Day bundles and exclusive mixtapes add a little bit of something extra – and we all love extra.
Check out our selection of gifts for music-lovers ahead, ranging from £6 to £250.
