5. Basket of Guitar Accessories:

- Guitar Cord Winder
- Guitar Stand
- Fast Fret
- Guitar Tuner
- Strings! Strings! Strings! (Make sure to get the right size and kind)
Repeat after me: A guitarist can never have too many sets of strings. Strings are cool. Very, very cool.
- Guitar Picks (Make sure you get the type your guitarist uses – sneak a peek!)
- Guitar Cables
- Gift Card or Note – Include the link to Free Step-by-Step instructions on HOW TO TUNE GUITAR from our talented friend Terry at GuitarSignal.com.
These items might not seem exciting, but to a musician, having the necessary tools available makes life awesome. Adding extras like the guitar tuning tutorial make the present useful and rewarding.
4. Guitar Case
- Especially if your guitarist travels a lot with a guitar, a well-made, sturdy case is a necessity. Read the reviews to see the ratings.
- It’s important the guitar case fits the type of electric guitar your guitarist plays. There are many different styles and shapes, and not all cases are universal.

3. New Guitar Strap
This is where you can let your imagination run wild. There are guitar straps of every style and brand. Leather straps, cotton straps, padded straps, expensive, cheap, fancy, or plain, in every pattern and color possible.
Think of your guitarist’s style, and select the guitar strap you think is an extension of your guitarist’s personality.
2. Online Lessons
There has never been a better time to take music lessons online. If your guitarist is spending a lot of time at home, whether because of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, or because of a furlough, why not gift something meaninful that can gives feelings of satisfaction, accomplishment, and pleasure?
Is your guitarist a beginner? Intermediate player? Weekend jams? Air guitar enthusiast? Or maybe a guitarist getting back into playing after being away from it for years? Give the gift of ONLINE Lessons.
You can’t go wrong with an established online program like GUITAR TRICKS.
There are so many to choose from, including personalized individual lessons, but for an established, dependable company you might gift a year of Guitar Tricks. There’s also a free trial so your guitarist can check it out before committing.
The cool thing about Guitar Tricks is there are songs in every genre your guitarist can dive into and learn. If you want guitar instruction, Guitar Tricks has a comprehensive system.
There are lots of extras and the price is great, so take a look. It just may be the perfect present for your guitarist, and something a little different and unexpected.
1. New Guitar
- Okay, seriously, this the ULTIMATE cool last-minute gift idea! You can never have too many guitars! (Says the guitarist!)
- However, there are a few points to keep in mind. You definitely want to think this one through.
- DON’T just go buy a guitar, or order just order any guitar online. There are many variables.
- A guitar is a very personal choice for a guitarist. This is something the guitarist should select, test, and try out. Guitarists who only play a certain brand or style of guitar, or only like certain ones, won’t be happy with anything else. Seriously.
- You could buy something unique like Kononykheen Guitars. These are well-made, reasonably priced, limited-edition, guitars. Because they are limited-edition, once they sell out, they’re gone, so they become rare collectibles.
- Not only do they play well, they are also great conversation pieces for musicians. It’s best to let your guitarist check out the website and current models: Kononykheen Guitars
- The gift of a new guitar is a dream-come-true present. You can place a card inside a gift-wrapped box with a hand-written note saying something like, “Surprise! You know the guitar you’ve been hoping for – it’s yours! Enjoy!” Or you could get a gift certificate or gift card at your guitarist’s favorite music shop.
Your guitarist will feel very special and think it’s awesome that you care about his music and creativity! This will probably be your guitarist’s best present ever!
If your guitarist is spending a lot of extra time at home due to COVID-19, a simple gift can be such a morale-booster. Music is the perfect activity to binge on. It’s calorie-free and guaranteed to fight boredom.
Giving musicians a gift related to their craft is something that has infinite rewards. You encourage and contribute to their ability to make music, and musicians create music that reaches out and touches others.
Selecting presents an electric guitarist can be tricky, especially if you don’t have much time. These gifts are perfect for anyone who loves the guitar or is interested in learning to play the guitar. All of these gifts are guitarist-approved and will make your guitarist very happy.
