This could be via phone, tablet, or iPod, but they will definitely need something to listen with. So, how about choosing headphones over buds, as they look that little bit cooler – plus, noise canceling. And, as it’s 2017, check out the Bluetooth headphone options as well.

Portable speaker

Now, headphones are all well and good, but they are a much more personal piece of kit. Sometimes it’s a good idea to think bigger, and choose something that’s a little bit less personal – and we recommend a portable Bluetooth speaker. If the music nut in your life also likes to take charge of playlists at house parties, this is the ideal gift for them. There are so many great portable speaker brands on the market these days, but we think you can’t go wrong with Bose.

Music books

If you are passionate about something, you generally want to know more about it. And there have been some wonderful music books written in the last few years. These allow the reader to find out more about a specific artist of style of music. Music lovers pride themselves on finding out as much as they can about the style of music that interests them. As such, books like This Day in Rap and Hip Hop History, and Miles are excellent choices for gifts.

Turntables

Do you know a budding DJ? Well, in that case, decks are probably the ideal gift. We’re not going to lie, these are expensive, but they would be perfect for that special someone. That’s assuming, of course, that you can handle the person spinning vinyl on a regular basis, and trying to perfect their style. The best thing to look for is some entry levels turntables which won’t be too expensive, and will do a decent job – the U-Turn Orbit Basic Turntable for just shy of $180 would be ideal.
