Even More Musical Gift Ideas. They May Not All Be Affordable, But…

With exactly a month until Christmas, it’s time to get serious about making lists. Maybe something like this?

1. Beatles Coffee Table

Fantastic, right? Too bad that it’s $1,100. (Via MyWebRoom)

2. Earplugs for Concerts

Sure you could keep buying the cheap foam things from Shopper’s Drug Mart, but these Shark Tank-approved plugs do a better job of keeping the decibels down while allowing the music to come through. Your ears are worth the $42.99. (Via


3. Jack White’s Picture Book for Children

Jack wrote this book based on the White Stripes song of the same name. Looks a little Dr. Seuss-y, doesn’t it? (Via


4. An Ugly Metallica Xmas Sweater

Ugly Christmas sweaters started being A Thing a couple of years ago. Maybe a Metallica version featuring a scary reindeer? Twenty bucks US at the Metallica store.

5, Music Teacher Mug

Totally onboard with this one. Find it on Polyvore for 17 bucks.


6. Headphone Pendant Necklace

Made of sterling and 14K gold. $60 USD at ThinkGeek.

7. A Personalized Mixtape Doormat

Imagine this at the front door. And for less than $50 Canadian, too. (Via Uncommon Goods)
