The­mat­ic gifts

What to give a musician?

Do you want to make a gift to a musi­cian, but don’t know what present will be use­ful and sin­cere­ly please the addressee? Our advice will help you choose the right gift option for those whose pro­fes­sion is relat­ed to music.

Selection rules

When choos­ing a gift for a musi­cian, there are a few things to keep in mind.

  • The age of the per­son to whom the pur­chase is intend­ed. Agree that a gift from which a six­teen-year-old guy will be com­plete­ly delight­ed does not nec­es­sar­i­ly please a respectable musi­cian. And, con­verse­ly, a young man who is pas­sion­ate about music may not share the pref­er­ences of old­er peo­ple.
  • Tastes and hob­bies. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of cre­ative pro­fes­sions, like all ordi­nary peo­ple, have dif­fer­ent inter­ests and hob­bies in oth­er areas of life. Cook­ing, flori­cul­ture, trav­el, sports, arts and crafts and paint­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy may ll be one of the favorite activ­i­ties of your fel­low musi­cians.

Ask what the per­son likes, what he loves, what he does in his free time, what he dreams about. This will help you make the right choice.

Before buy­ing a gift relat­ed to the music indus­try, be sure to talk to knowl­edge­able peo­ple or con­sult with your friend’s col­leagues. They will be able to tell you what will please your friend, what he needs at the moment.

If you want to buy a musi­cal instru­ment or an acces­so­ry for it, be sure to find out how good the item is and whether it is worth buy­ing for your friend.

Do not give a stranger gifts with humor or inti­mate things. Humor is a great thing, but not for when you just want to pay atten­tion to your good friend, not a close friend. Giv­ing per­son­al items such as socks, tights, under­ar, per­fume is com­plete­ly inap­pro­pri­ate. Choose a gift with a soul, and you will def­i­nite­ly make your friend hap­py.
