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.

    Hi Wei,

    these Christmas gifts are so adorable! I really love the Playable Tie and Musical Gift Set. When I scrolled down to see all the products and got to third – this title ’LED Music Light’ made me think it would give sound when you turn it on : )

    I would love to have lamp that plays piano when I turn it on.

    My friend is having a birthday party soon and maybe I’ll buy him playable tie cause he also loves classical music and this is a funny way to suprise him!

    Thank you for the post,

    I’ll bookmark it,

    These are some really awesome pianist gift ideas! I have a few musicians in my family and 2 of them are pianists, my mum and my brother. I really like the idea of the LED light because we have a piano in our front room, but its kinda dim in there and for my mum, who reads and writes music, she finds it difficult sometimes to see the sheet with the lack of light.

    So that’s a really great idea for her, thanks!

      Hi Joe, welcome and thanks for the comment. I’m glad you find some of these ideas useful. Get that LED light for your mum! It is going to heat her eyes if she keeps reading in the dark. She will sure thank you and think of you every time she uses that light. 

      Have a great holiday!

    It is definitely that time of the year again. I love the tie! It is such a cool gift and very affordable. I’m getting that for my nephew, he is taking the piano class right now, but will it be too big for him? Nah, I’ll make his did play it together with him. For score books which one is your favorite and also which one is friendly to a child about 9 years old? 

    • Wei

      Hi Nuttanee, thanks for dropping by. I also love the playable tie. Such a great idea and so much fun to play with. The tie is 21.5 inches long. It is probably too long for your nephew, but that’s the fun part. It would look ridiculous and fun. 

      Score book really depends on the skill level of your nephew. I would suggest you secretly contact his teacher for recommendations.
