Five Last-Minute Musical Gifts

Not sure what to get the musically inclined member of your family? Maybe I can help you.

Looking for a last minute gift for that musician or music lover in your family? Here’s five ideas that might work for that musical person in your life.

1. Ukulele

  • This four-string Hawaiian lute is great for people of all ages. The nylon strings are easy on the fingers, and learning songs is simple once you get the hang of it. Basic ukuleles can run about $40, but there are plenty of high-end options for more serious musicians.
  • Where to Buy: Coffey Music in Westminster, Appalachian Bluegrass in Catonsville, Bill’s Music House in Catonsville

2. iTunes Gift Card

  • You can’t go wrong with an iTunes gift card. Your musically inclined loved one can choose whatever music they’d like, so you don’t have to worry about whether or not the CD you got them is something they want.
  • Where to Buy: Best Buy, online

3. Led Zeppelin – Celebration Day

  • The newly released CD and DVD collection captures the legendary rock band’s 2007 London reunion concert. Sets that are available include two CDs, two CDs and a DVD, two CDs and Blu-ray, and two CDs and two Blu-rays. While some of the songs were played in lower keys to accommodate singer Robert Plant, Zeppelin sounds as tight and as fresh as they did in the '70s.
  • Where to Buy: Best Buy, online

4. The Beatles Stereo Vinyl Box Set

  • Released in November, this box set features all 14 Beatles albums, re-mastered in stereo and on vinyl. This is one for the true collectors and Beatles lovers. In addition to the records, it includes a 252-page hardbound book that includes rare images of the band.
  • Where to Buy: The Beatles online store, Amazon.com

5. A Mix CD

  • If you’re on a budget or want to make something more personal for that musical person in your life, why not make a mix CD? You can turn them on to new music you think they’d like, make a mix of their favorite songs, or tell that special someone how you feel through music.
