Chopin Bored: $15.99
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.
Musical Oven Gloves: ± $15.00
Just look at the photos and tell me you don’t find them adorable! I would love to have one of these as a Christmas gift and I will think of you every time I bake my favorite cookies.

Does your musical family member has a pet dog? If so, you are in luck. It’s often a great idea to give something for the pet. We pet owners always appreciate that.
Famous Pianist Wall Decor: ± $30.00

Headphones: from $20.00 to $$$$
Whether your family member plays on a digital piano or mixes his or her own music on a Mac Book, a good pair of headphones is always needed. It can be a no brainier as a gift but do be careful. Headphones can be very expensive and your musical family member most likely has very picky ears. You really don’t want to give a cheap pair of headphones as it will never be used and it’s just a waste.
Score Books: ± $10.00 to $30.00
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.
