It’s not easy to wow a music lover. With a discerning ear and finely tuned tastes, the music aficionado can be one of the most difficult people to shop for. Harder still, gizmos and gadgets abound in today’s music landscape, which means simple mix tapes or a t-shirt will no longer do.

Some are guaranteed to knock an artist's socks off – like a primo synthesizer – while other presents are best suited for the academically minded music fan. Does your gifted fancy himself or herself as a rock scholar? Present them with Keith Richards’ best-selling memoir Life, Aretha Franklin’s biography, Respect or even 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die.
There’s something for those who march to the beat of their own drum, too, because – let’s face it – the musically minded among us tend to do their own thing. And of course, the best gift of all is the music itself, from headphones and speakers to premium music streaming services.
