Receiving a gift that’s either useful or is related to guitar in some way is fantastic for any guitarist. The good news is you don’t need to spend a lot to find a great guitar related gift. Here are some unique gifts for guitar players sure to bring a smile to their face!
Guitar Practice Prompt Cards
What’s better than a guitar related gift? A gift that’s practical! These prompt cards add a bit of flavor to guitar practice, which can be frankly very dull. Shuffle the deck and pull out a card, which might be a challenge, some inspiration or an exercise. These cards make you think a bit, which is great for varying your practice. For example, play a lead riff over your favorite song. You need to work out the key, the scale and finally come up with something awesome. When you’re done you feel great! All thanks to a pack of cards!
LED Guitar Lamp
If you’re anything like me, I love a bit of guitar and I love a bit of LED color changing lamps. Here’s something that’s both? No way! Not only does it look like a 3D guitar when lit up, you can spend ages playing with the color settings thanks to the controller. Runs on three AA batteries or via USB connector. It’s construct makes it looks like a 3D floating guitar when it’s lit up. It’s a great little prop to have whilst your noodling on your guitar.
Guitar Lunch Tin
Take your guitar with you to work or school, one that contains your lunch! This guitar case shaped lunch box is a novelty and perfect for anyone who is truly obsessed with the guitar. It comes with a pack of stickers to enable you to get creative with the design. Possibly not one for those with large appetites measuring 15.5cm wide and 28cm in length. Made of sturdy materials that are suitable for contact with your food. Alternatively it could be used to store accessories such as picks, capos and spare strings. You definitely wouldn’t forget where they were! The fasteners, which look like the clips on a guitar case, are secure so you won’t lose your lunch when out and about.
Definitely a talking point around the lunch table. It’s one of those gifts that any guitar player will appreciate thanks to the novelty.
Keep Calm Travel Mug
This is another one of those useful items that’s been altered to suit a guitarist. Technically you’re supposed to put coffee in this mug, but being guitarists I’m sure something stronger might end up in there on occasion. The 14oz capacity travel mug is made from white stainless steel and has a leak-proof lid. The top swivels to allow you to drink your favorite tipple. The handle is plastic, but is sturdy enough. That’s all there is to it. Guitarists will love pointing out the message on the mug to stressed colleagues at work!
Chord Diagram Coffee Mug
Drinking coffee just got educational. Featuring 46 chord diagrams the guitarist will never stop learning, even on a coffee break. It’s a truly unique situation when you can say you’ve forgotten a chord and will just check the coffee mug to remind yourself. Featuring all open chords and variations of each the guitarist no longer has to Google a chord, just check the coffee mug. Measures approximately 9.5 by 8cm and comes with a box. A great and practical gift for a guitarist.
Guitar LED Wall Clock
This is one of the more left-field choices. But if the person you’re buying for has the style and a place to put it, this LED lit wall clock might be perfect for them. The clock can be powered by battery or a power adapter. A word of warning if you choose to power via an adapter. The power chord isn’t the most discreet, so you may want to hide it with some cable trunking. Obviously that’ll mean a bit more thought. I guess it depends on who you’re buying it for. The lighting is controlled via a battery operated remote, which includes color select. It’s not heavy, weighing less than 500g. Potentially a great present for someone’s practice space.
Home Plectrum Making Kit
Most guitarists will tell you that they’re forever losing their plectrums. Then, once you go and buy some more, the one’s that you lost always turn up. Typical! How about a gift that allows a guitarist to make their own plectrums? It’d be interesting to know whether lost plectrums would every get found if you’re not buying more. I feel like that could be some sort of paradox? Anyway, the kit consists of a stapler like contraption, which punches the picks from the material you insert. It’ll cut up to 1mm thick plastic, so you can make picks out of your old credit cards if you want to.
Some materials are included to get you started. There’s also a leather key chain plectrum holder. Does that mean we’ll never lose a pick again? Sandpaper is included so that you can polish and smooth the edge of your newly created plectrums. There aren’t any instructions included, but that’s part of the fun, right?
Engraved Hard Ebony Pick
A pretty simple gift, probably for a significant other. This hardwood pick is durable and is great for heavier styles. Despite being made from hardwood, the pick is light thanks to the pit on the back to suit the thumb positioning. It has sharp edges for precision picking. Unfortunately you can’t customize what’s engraved onto the pick, but it’s clever in a way isn’t it? Just make sure the person you’re gifting it to doesn’t have a habit of losing picks (that rules out just about every guitarist!)
Buying a guitar related gift for a guitarist is a big plus. It’s highly likely to be different from more middle of the road gifts, and they’re likely to absolutely love receiving it. Each of the gifts above is an inexpensive way to show someone that you care, whilst indulging their hobby. I hope you’ve found this post useful. Feel free to leave any questions or comments below.
