Music Lover Gift Basket Ingredients

container ideas

  • basket
  • CD storage box
  • bag with built-in speakers


  • Earphones – an essential music lover gift. Ranging from trendy small earphones in all shapes and colors which are great for MP listeners, to heavy duty professional ones for home stereo listeners, DJs etc. I recommend you go for earphones with volume control if available.
  • Portable speakers – enable music lovers to share their music with the people around them. The stronger ones require power outlet and others just plug into the music source.
  • Bag with Built-in speakers – a cool item, especially for students or people who go on picnics. Can double function as a gift container.
  • 3.5mm Audio Jack Splitter – enables plugging two sets of earphones to the same device so two people can enjoy the same music a the same time.
  • FM transmitter – a great little gadget for music lovers with old car radio. It transmits music from your plugged in memory stick / SD card / MP player to a radio channel of your choice. You simply tune your radio to your chosen channel and listen to your music through your car’s stereo. By the way, if your recipient still has a cassette player in the car, there’s also a cassette adapter for car stereos.
  • MP (media player) – these are so affordable these days…if your music lover doesn’t have a media player, Why not get him one and upload some of his/her favorite music on it (see below)?
  • Playlist – the most important element in a music lover gift basket! Get the latest album of the recipient’s favorite artist or a collection of his/her favorite music genre. You can also download and create a personalized collection yourself legally and for free (see for example this link to Amazon’s free downloadable music and another one for free classical music at Musopen ). If you are not sure what your recipient’s taste is you can get him/her a gift card in music stores, Itunes, Amazon, Spotify etc.
  • CD rack/ storage box – old fashioned music lovers tend to collect music albums, if your recipient collects CD albums you can get him/her a CD rack or CD storage box that can double function as this gift’s container.
  • Musical instrument Gadgets – a roll-up electric piano or drum kit are portable and foldable mats imitating the real thing. Some come with built-in speakers and other hook up to the computer.
  • Musical instruments – Include a small musical instrument along with instructions on how to play it. For example a recorder flute (here are instructions for playing Marry had a Little Lamb on a recorder flute), harmonica (here are harmonica instructions for beginners), a miniature drum or even a guitar.
  • Vinyl records/cassette tapes digital converter – for music record/cassette collectors who want to enjoy their collection in a digital format. Also called “USB turntables”.
  • Concert tickets – if you know what your recipient’s musical preferences or favorite artists are and you can afford it, this is one of the best music lover gifts to give.
  • Karaoke set – for those who love listening to music but also like to be heard…
  • Shower Radio – a water resistant radio to hang in the shower for those who want to hear music even when they are in the bathroom.

more ideas for music lovers who also play an instrument:

  • Sheet music – Get sheet music books by instrument or print out favorite pieces yourself. Check out the amazing website featuring free music sheet notes for every instrument and level.
  • Sheet music stand – for easier music notes reading (unless your recipient is playing the piano).
  • Sheet music clip – to hold the sheets in place when playing (you can include a nice looking peg instead).
  • Instrument accessories – A Metronome, guitar string set, drum sticks etc. depending on the instrument your recipient plays.
  • Music related items – music themed gift items such as shirts, hats, ties, mugs, wallets, key chains, stickers, lighters and others. See an inspiring collection of such items here.
