So you know a guitarist and are looking for the perfect gift for them. Well be it christmas, a Secret Santa, Fathers Day, Mothers day, Valentines day, a birthday or even just a random gift exchange this list will have the perfect gift you’re looking for!
I’ve tried to write this for the benefit of non-guitar players. If you are a guitar player then be sure to send this list out to your loved ones before it’s too late!
I’ve picked all these gifts based on ones I’ve received myself and ones I am hoping to receive. I have also made sure not to include some of the worst guitar presents I’ve gotten over the years, like an inflatable guitar or a guitar t-shirt that you can play.
I’ve made sure to include a range of gifts, some serious, some silly and some useful! They are ordered from lowest price to highest so be sure to click through to amazon to check the price and order your favorite guitar player the perfect gift today!
These are the absolute pinnacle of budget Christmas gift. You get 4, 3” guitars to hang off your Christmas tree. These are not high quality but given the price, this is quite understandable. A perfect stocking filler.
Another fun budget guitar gift. The main problem with these is that when you order you only get 1 and you don’t get to decide which, it is picked randomly from the 4 in the picture. That said my girlfriend got me one of these for Christmas one year and I loved it! Another great secret Santa gift or a stocking filler.
Now this has cropped up on a few different guitar gift pages but I think it’s so cool it deserves to be on mine as well. This awesome guitar string bracelet is one size fits all, unisex and made from a real guitar string! Ideal for Mother’s day if your mom loves to rock or for any guitarist looking for something different to wear.
Know someone who plays guitar by night and works in an office by day? Get them this awesome Guitarist Pen Holder! This gunmetal pen holder is about 5” wide and has a great black finish. Perfect to add to an office space at work at home or in the studio!
Bassists always get a hard time in the world of guitar. So show your bassist how much you appreciate them with this awesome Badass Bassist Mug! I think it speaks for itself really. And I know a few bass players who can look forward to getting this come Christmas time!
Feeling patriotic? Well, it doesn’t get more American than these American Flag guitar picks! These come in a 12 pack and are a medium weight, but you don’t get pick’s like this for the practical use, you get them because they look Badass!
These are a little more practical than the previous American Flag counterparts. You get 51 picks of various sizes and design as well as a carry bag. They can be used for bass, electric or acoustic guitar. This is the cheapest of the more practical guitar presents
This is the perfect Father’s day present. For those who don’t know the chords are D, A, D. I think this is really cool. I just wish my dad played guitar so I could get it for him. This T-shirt comes in a variety of sizes from small to 3XL.
This shirt is the perfect gift for any other time of the year. Available in Black or Navy the acoustic. This subtle well-designed T-shirt is made of 100% cotton making it comfortable and great fitting. I was recently in Bangkok Airport and actually saw a man wearing this t-shirt, I thought about asking to take his picture but didn’t want to look even a little bit suspicious while at the airport.
This is a really great gift for any guitarist who may have injured their hand or wrist in any way. The finger strengthener will help guitarists build up finger strength for better playing and stronger hands to help them keep playing for years to come!
This guitar pick necklace is definitely more feminine than other gifts on this list but I still love it. “When Words Fail Music Speaks” is such a nice phrase to have close to your heart. The necklace and pendant are both stainless steel so they won’t tarnish and helps keep the price down.
The ultimate Dad gift for any occasion. I remember getting my dad a Pink Panther tie one Father’s day when I was around 5, he then kept it and about 20 years later I wore it to my Father-in-law’s wedding. I hope to have that similar bonding experience when I’m older and this is definitely the tie I want it to happen with.
I love novelty guitar straps and I think this Marvel Comics guitar strap is one of my favourites. Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America and Spider-Man. I also love that they are designed from the comic books and not the Marvel Movies, it makes them more timeless.
This is a really cool novelty present. It makes guitar picks out of any thin plastic material and it comes with a bunch of different colored cards. It’s just a really fun gift. You can even get sheets of thin plastic, write on it with a sharpie and then cut them out into guitar picks. Pretty cool! As an added bonus it comes with a leather key chain pick holder, whoop! And it has come down a lot in price so is a great deal.
This batman guitar is perfect for anyone who is big into collectables. This guitar is made of Mahogany with a nice glossy finish, it comes in at 10” tall and has it’s own guitar stand. This is a really nice quality collectable, a great start to a collection or addition to a collection no matter how big! Or you can troll your friends by telling them you bought them a guitar.
Nothing like a stone guitar pick to get a great rock sound. Ahem… Seriously though gemstone guitar picks are not only a great collector’s item they provide great precision and accuracy in your playing and any guitar player would love to try them out. These are made of Tiger’s Eye and will look different to the picture due to their inherently unique nature.
A 6 pack of guitar strings is about as practical as it gets when it comes to guitar gifts. A guitar player always needs new strings but it’s important to get the right strings. I would ask the guitar player what strings they use but if that’s not an option then Ernie Ball slinkies are one of the most common guitar strings used so you’ll be pretty safe with these. The bonus with these is that they come with a free guitar peg winder!
This is awesome because every time you want a new necklace you can slip in a new pick. The necklace and pendant are made of Stainless Steel. It also holds up to 3 guitar picks so you can be sure to never be without as long as you’re wearing the necklace!
This is another great practical present, perfect for anyone who knows a touring guitarist! This guitar tool kit includes a string winder, 5 allen Keys, string cutters, flashlight and 2 in 1 screwdriver. It also has 6 practical pockets for string storage, picks, business cards, random groupies phone numbers you name it! This is my favourite gift of all of them as it is a great price and perfect for any guitarist.
Now this isn’t going to be up everyone’s street but if you know someone who loves a heavy metal gothic theme then this guitar holder is perfect. It screws directly into the wall and holds the guitar comfortable with it’s cushioned thumb to prevent tarnish on the guitar head.
You can tell we’re getting to the end of the list, these cufflinks are silver plated. Again, this is a gift for a certain type of person, not just anyone would wear cufflinks. But if you know the person who does like cufflinks and plays guitar then you can’t go wrong with these. Really great quality and very unique these cufflinks are made in England and shipped from Florida.
Sometimes a cool T-shirt doesn’t quite cut it if your north you want to have a great jumper to show off your love of the guitar. This guitar evolution Hoodie comes in royal blue or black and is available in sizes from small to a massive 5XL. A really cool hoodie a great gift for any guitar player.
Go in a completely different direction and get your favourite guitar player the gift of the ukulele! It’s a bit of fun and something really different, they will love the challenge of a new instrument and the ukulele is really fun to play! This set includes everything you need to get started, a case, book, CDs, DVD and of course the ukulele! I actually got a flying V ukulele for my birthday from my brother and I still remember unwrapping it.
This guitar stand from Fender is phenomenal quality and great for anyone with too many guitars! Which I think is every guitarist really. This is also great for taking on the road as it folds away nicely and can be stored in your gig bag.
This gift basket is the ultimate gift for any guitar player. It has everything a guitarist could want in a present. It is more expensive than all the other gifts but it contains almost everything: a premium guitar strap, guitar tuner, wall hanger, guitar picks, 2 sets of premium strings, peg winder, guitar cleaner, polish cloth and a concert blanket. So don’t write it off because it is incredible value, I know many guitarists who would be beyond thrilled to get this!
This is out of most people’s price range but would be an awesome present to receive. You link it up to an iPhone and you can get feedback on your playing, there are loads of tutorials and games. The best gift for any tech nerds who love the guitar.
That concludes our list! I hope you found something useful to give to your favourite guitar player be that your boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, husband, mum, dad or anyone else! I’m sure they will love everything on this list.
