10 Gifts for Your Musician Friends & Family
When it comes to buying gifts for your professional musician friends and family, finding something that they'll find useful can be tough.
Whether you are musical yourself or not, it can be difficult to select a gift that they can use every day in their work as a professional or gigging musician.
That’s why we’ve put together a “Christmas gift guide” of our top ten musical gifts this holiday season.
From serious pieces of musical kit to fun stocking fillers, we’ve put together a list of gifts that are sure to be well received on Christmas morning.
1 – A Fusion Bags Gig Bag
A sturdy gig bag is one of the most important pieces of kit a musician can own (besides their instruments of course), so buying a new bag for Christmas is a great option, and we “just so happen” to have one or two available.
Our Fusion gig bags offer excellent protection with a modern, stylish design. They’re designed with the touring musician in mind and are available for everyone from guitarists to DJs.
2 – A Custom Made Ukulele
A musical instrument is a gift that will bring joy for years to come. Tinguitar ukuleles are hand-made in the heart of the Yorkshire Pennines by experienced luthier Rob Collins.
Rob Collins is known throughout the ukulele world for his beautifully crafted instruments. For more information contact Rob at Tin Guitar.
3 - A Fuse-On Bag
If the musician you’re buying for already has one of our Fusion gig bags, maybe a “Fuse-On” bag would be the perfect addition?
They can attach to many of our bags and provide extra storage space when needed. A “Fuse-On” bag means your musical friend or family member doesn’t have to drag around extra bags when carrying additional gear.
4 – A Fusion Gift Card
Shopping for someone else but not sure what to buy them? Give them the gift of choice with a Fusion Bags Gift Card.
5 - A Fusion Headphone Pouch
Headphones are an increasingly important part of a professional musician’s kit, and this handy headphone pouch makes for the perfect stocking filler, keeping everything secure and ready to go.
It’s water resistant, with enough space inside for headphones, as well as cables and a mobile phone.
6 - A Piece of Bespoke Cymbal Art
Moving away from gear that a musician can use, to something that’s been put to another use, these bespoke painting cymbals are a great Christmas gift for a drummer or any professional musician.
Designed and made by artist Josh Stadlen, each design is painted directly onto a reclaimed cymbal for a great, unique piece of art that any music fan will enjoy.
7 - A Fusion Bag Rain Cover
At this time of year, a rain cover might be a low-cost stocking filler, but it may be a godsend for your professional musician friend.
Our rain covers provide some extra protection against the elements, whether walking home from a gig or running for the train. They also have a reflective Fusion logo on the front, making this a practical gift that’s great for a commuting musician.
8 - 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die
For any music fan or professional musician, this book of 1001 albums to hear before you die makes for great reading.
Diehard musicians will find some of their favourite work in here, and probably discover something new as well. This could be great for reading in the days off touring around Christmas, or on the road throughout the year.
You can pick one up from Amazon.
9 - A Ticket to a Concert or Music Festival
What musician wouldn’t love to receive a ticket to a music festival or concert of their favourite band? Find out what music your friends or family love and you’re never short of a good gift during the festive season.
10 - A Fusion Laptop Bag
It’s becoming more and more important for travelling musicians to carry laptops, whether it’s as part of their performance or just to keep up to date with work.
One of our Fusion laptop bags is perfect for carrying a laptop around on the road. They’ll offer great protection and match their Fusion gig bag too.
Available in multiple sizes and colours and packed with storage space for all of those accessories, a Fusion laptop bag makes for the perfect Christmas gift.
