It’s almost that time of the year now. Have you picked your gifts for your loved one yet? Now, if you have a musician in the family, you might find it difficult to choose the right gift. As you know, we can be very picky. So, if you are looking for Christmas gifts for piano players in the family, I might be able to give you some inside ideas.
One thing to remember when shopping for a musician. Don’t get them any equipment unless they specifically ask for a particular one. I’m talking about headphones, amplifiers, stands, etc. Musicians usually have very strong opinions and preferences towards the equipment they use.
I would like to help you by listing some gifts that would interest me as a piano player. Hopefully, they will give you some good ideas. You will have the perfect gift that stands out and you will get a big hug and loving smile from that hard-to-please musician of your family. Furthermore, these are not just good gifts, they are also practical items that the piano player in the family are going to use constantly. Hence he or she will think of you all the time.
I don’t know for you, but my family always sing after the Christmas dinner. This is the best selling Karaoke kit on Amazon and it could be the perfect Christmas gift. It is compact and wireless. You can connect it with your smart device and there’s an App where you can choose your favorite songs. It even has a built in speaker so no hassle with cables to set it up.
If you have a loved one who just starts to learn piano, this could be the best Christmas gift. I still remember in my early days, how hard it was to memorize all the keys and their corresponding notes. What’s most challenging were the sharps and flats. I would be thrilled to receive this handy key stickers as a Christmas gift back then.

Does Chopin cook when he’s bored? I honestly have no idea. But musicians do need to eat and this cut board is the most adorable piece I can find. It’s clever and humorous. I probably wouldn’t chop anything on it but use it as a wall decor thanks to the hanging hole.

What’s more appropriate as a gift to music lovers than a score book. You are literally giving music on paper. It’s safer to find out what genre the recipient likes. But it’s also okay to take a risk and give a score book that you like. You can then discuss it with your musical family member and who knows, you might just open another door to the music world for him or her.
