Since the holidays are lurking around the corner. I decided to leave you all with some gift GIVING suggestions. I exaggerate on the GIVING because I know me and during the holidays, I always manage to shop for myself more than others. SO, I came up with a few (affordable) ways to surprise your musical friends this holiday.
First, the portable vinyl carrier is perfect for your friends or family who has records but no record player. So, this holiday is perfect for the Vinyl Killer. Vinyl Killer is a portable record player made in Japan. You no longer have to spin the record, nor do you even need a turntable.
This is a portable way to bring your favorite vinyl tunes everywhere! Although they do not project the best sound and might kill a vinyl if often used, they are still a fun gag gift. Most vinyl killers come in the form of cars: VW buses, Beatles, etc. They are perfect for the hippie at heart.
Second, if you have a little to spend, you can purchase an MP3 player at various afforable prices. Then, after you score an amazing deal, you can download a personalized playlist that is specific to the one you are gifting. Maybe include a few new songs they wouldnt normally listen to.
Burning CD's is also a good way to share music. It's cheap and you can find fun ways to package
the homemade inspiration discs. Just check out Pinterest for new ways to use materials you have at home to design pre-made quality.
Back to the vinyls. If you know someone who has a record collection that is being used only to collect dust, take the ones that are still visibly entact, and put them into frames. The vintage appeal of vinyl art will make a unique wall decoration. ( Below is a sweet example).
This is not my wall but I am hoping to get a few frames for my vinyls to do the same thing!
Whatever you choose for your musical friends, it's the thought that counts.
