Gifts for Musicians for under $20

by Ragtimelil

Are you wondering what to give the musician in your life? Here's some music related gifts that won't break the bank.

There are all sorts of gadgets for the musician, but have you ever wondered what would make a good gift? Some are practical, some whimsical and some just a really great idea. I spent about a third of my life as a working musician and some of these items weren't available back then. I wish they had been. I could have used some and certainly would have given some as gifts.

Drink Holder

For performing and practicing sessions

Traditionally, drinks end up on top of amplifiers where they can spill and damage equipment. This holder fits on any microphone or cymbal stand and attaches with an easy-to-use knob.Rated at five stars, this drink holder received rave reviews as a sturdy and handy accessory.

The inside diameter of the drink holder is 3 1/2 inches and can accommodate most drinks and sports bottles. Reviewers called it "rock solid."


Guitar Chord Rubber Stamp and Ink Pad

This stamp is a great gift for your guitar player or teacher. No more squiggly, uneven lines, but now a neat, way to stamp the top five frets of the guitar. Fingerings can be noted for students learning to play up to professionals who want to remember a special voicing of a chord.

The stamped image is approximately 1 1/2 inches by 1 inch.

Don't forget ink. Tsukineko's Memento inkpads are a standard for paper crafters and would easily accomodate the Guitar Chord Rubber Stamp. It's a fast drying ink and comes in 24 colors for more artistic expression.


Piano Player Scarf

Here's a great gift for the piano player that would serve as a great thank you gift too. The scarf is made from satin and chiffon and printed in an elegant design of notes and piano keys.

It comes in several colors and measures 60 inches by 13 inches. It is versatile enough to be used as a scarf, sash or belt. It can also be used as decoration or even as a whimsical gift wrap.


Musical Window Decal

Take your music with you when you drive or use as a room decoration.

This decal measures 3 inches by 5 inches and adheres to glass or any smooth, flat surface. The decals are die cut from 2.8 millimeter vinyl. It can withstand heat, cold and wet weather and is rated for 5 years for outdoor use and indefinitely indoors.

They are perfect for car windows and can be used on the body of cars, boats, campers or trailers. They have also been used as laptop skins and to cover books. The possibilities are endless.

Be sure to read the instructions and suggestions for the use of this decal.

Sheet Music Umbrella

You can't have too many umbrellas. You can keep one in the car for those pop-up showers, one at work and, of course one at home. These music themed umbrellas let the world know that you are a musician or a music lover. They make a great gift for any occasion or just as a thank you.

The umbrella is white with black musical notation.

These are some gifts that any musician or Music night
music lover would appreciate. Some of these selections can be used even if your musician or music lover already has one. Let them know you appreciate their talent.

I like these. Now, can I find a musician I need to get a gift for?

Wish we'd had them back in the day. I would have had one for sure.
And thanks.

Nice ideas. Some of the guys in the boyfriend's band use drink cups. Pretty cool. I love the art, too!

Well thanks. It's all stuff I might have or still would want.
