A lot of people tell me “I wanna buy you a gift, but I honestly don’t know what to get you, not just because you’re a lady, but because you’re a guitar player!” And I’m like “OH???!!!!?”. I’m sure a whole lot of persons would be in those shoes too, wondering what to gift a friend, colleague, lover, favourite artist, or sibling who is a guitar player (male or female). Some other persons are actually on a budget?, but badly wanna get a worthy precious gift for their beloved guitarist. Worry no more, let’s sort you out!
There are wonderful gift ideas that won’t cost a fortune and are very presentable and lovely. Check them out with me!
1. CUSTOMIZED PICKS
This is a simple but very ‘dear-to-the-heart’ present. You can get any text you want engraved on a beautiful, good quality guitar pick of their favourite colour or pattern, it could be their real name, stage name or nick name (depending on how close you are to them).
2. GUITAR WALLET OR PURSE
Everyone needs a place to store their monies, cards and even picks! and guitarists are not left out. It’s not like they cannot afford themselves purses or wallets, but some of them honestly forget to buy basic stuff like these, mostly because of their busy schedules. Buying a guitar themed purse or wallet for your favourite guitarist shows them that you have them in mind and you definitely want them to earn more (lol)?
3. GUITAR NOTE TEA/COFFEE MUG
Guitarists that put in a lot of time to practice, especially through the night, definitely need all the help they can get in staying awake. This tea/coffee mug☕ with the guitar handle is so beautiful to sip out of, it just does it right!
4. PEN/PENCIL ORGANIZER
This cute looking pen/pencil organizer makes any guitarist’s work space a little bit more fun. It’s stylish, made of metal (which makes it last for much longer), and has a barrel to sit about 5-6 pens or pencils✏?
5. GUITAR SHAPED USB FLASH DRIVE
Guitarists who are tech-savvy will find this one very interesting and handy because they deal with lots of file transfers, videos, audios etc, they’re gonna love it!
6. GUITAR STAND BEDSIDE LAMP
This lamp is absolutely gorgeous! Sleeping and waking up in the light of this lamp? will have them thinking about you as often as they sleep and wake?
7. GUITAR NECKLACE
Whether your recipient is a lady guitarist (like me?) or a male guitarist, a beautiful guitar pendant would definitely be a nice addition to their jewelry set, one look at it will give them the assurance that you’re in support of their dreams. It’s simple, attractive and very impressive.
8. TOP QUALITY LEATHER GUITAR STRAP
Every guitarist loves a good quality leather guitar strap, problem is that some of them buy cheap ones that break, wear out easily and do not last long?. Get them a top quality leather strap so that whenever they pick up their guitar to strap on and play, they’d smile? and you’ll be the reason why.
9. GUITAR WALL HANGERS
A guitar wall hanger such as this one will make it easier for your beloved guitarist to pick up the instrument and play?, unlike when it’s packed up in a case. Asides that, it keeps the guitar safe from constantly hitting it down or tripping over it, it’s also part of room decor and helps to free up floor space to accommodate other items.
10. GUITAR SHAPED SPATULA
This one is for the guitar player that loves cooking and being in the kitchen. Fun fact: It’s the same hard plastic quality with the normal spatula, the only difference is that it’s in the shape of a guitar!
11. MARSHALL AMP-SHAPED FRIDGE
Okay, I know in the intro part of this article, I said the gifts don’t cost a fortune, well, that is true except for this one (and maybe another one below?), this one would cost a small fortune because it’s a bit on the big-budget side?. Imagine your favourite guitar player pulling out a beer? or cold drink? from this sweet-looking Marshall Amp fridge. If you can afford it, why not?!
12. GUITAR THEMED THROW PILLOWS
Everyone knows just how much I love my throw pillows?. Nothing shows love to a guitarist more than a sweet throw pillow, there are a thousand and one varieties to pick from in stores worldwide that would best project the style of your favourite guitarist.
13. GUITAR SHAPED EGG/PANCAKE PAN
Show me one guitar player that wouldn’t love a nicely made egg? or pancake? in the shape of a guitar…I’m waiting?.
14. GUITAR SHAPED PACKSACK
This bag is excellent for guitarists who are students and those who like to move about with stuff like tapes, books, cords….anything at all! It’s a perfect bag in the shape of a guitar and the straps are fashioned after actual guitar straps!
15. PHONE CASES
This is a random item but very unique especially if it comes in the style of an acoustic guitar, electric guitar or even an amplifier. There are so many styles and designs to choose from!
16. GUITAR WALL CLOCK
This is a perfect, inexpensive gift to give to the guitarist after your heart. We all know a wall clock serves purposes like beautification and telling time, this one is no exception. Your beloved guitarist would love you for this!
17. GUITAR STANDS
This is the “another one below” I was talking about earlier?. Guitar stands are on the pricey side too, you can give this to someone on their special occasion who is dear to your heart ❤and has more than one guitar. It tells and shows them a lot about the intent of your heart towards them, like I’d always say…”If you can afford it, why not?!”
18. GUITAR SHAPED ICECUBE TRAY
This is one heck of a goofy? and fun gift to give to your favourite guitar player (I’ll recommend a close friend or relative for this one). They would laugh out loud? and think about you when using the guitar shaped ice cubes made from this particular tray.
19. NEON SIGN
Players who have additional space on their walls would love this decor, it’s so cool, serves as a prop and adds an extra source of light? to the room.
20. GUITAR CLOTHINGS
Giving a guitarist an extra piece of clothing to add to their wardrobe is a heart-warming show of love and appreciation. You know them, you know their style, you know their colour. Pick out the best clothing for them.
You must not buy a throat-cutting gift before you’re appreciated for it. Simple gifts from the heart show and prove as much love as a very expensive gift would?. Afterall, it’s the heart that matters, and not necessarily the size of the gift.
