Buying gifts for guitar players is tough–especially if you aren’t a guitarist yourself. Worse, there are a lot of really cheesy, gimmick-y gift guides out there (some were even created by non-guitarists).
So, I’ve compiled this list of guitar gifts for 2021 that I myself (an avid guitar player) would love to receive as gifts for Christmas, Hanukkah, Birthdays, Father’s Day, or any other occasion.
These items are all things that I currently own, have owned in the past, or have at least tried. So, I know it’s all great stuff that’s actually useful and would be truly appreciated by the guitarist in your life.
Gifts for Guitar Players Under $10
Why No Guitar Pedals? Or Strings? Or Picks? Or…??
I’ve chosen not to list guitar pedals, strings, and picks because these items are very much a matter of personal taste. We guitar players can be really picky about these things, so it’s best to avoid them as gifts… unless they’ve told you exactly what they want. Otherwise, if you try to guess, you run a very high risk of buying your guitarist a pedal, strings, or picks that they won’t like or use.
Have a Gift Question or Idea? Just Ask!
Got something else in mind? Run your gift ideas by me in the comments below and I’ll give you my input so you can buy the right gifts before the holidays sneak up on you.
Of course, there are plenty of other potential gifts for guitar players out there that didn’t make this list. If you have a question about a specific gift idea, or perhaps you feel that I left a great gift idea off this list, please let me know in the comments below.
Also, I’d love to hear how they reacted to your gift, so please share.
