There is still time to get your guitar hero a gift to treasure. Here are five guitarist-approved ideas, in reverse order from feast to beast:
5. Basket of Guitar Accessories:
If it’s the last minute, all of the following can be ordered from Amazon, or visit your local music store. Ask for help if you need it. Assemble a cool box or basket with some or all of the following:
- Guitar Cord Winder
- 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
These items might not seem exciting, but to a musician, having the necessary tools available makes life awesome.
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.

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
• Beginning or intermediate guitarist? Or a guitarist getting back into playing after some time? How about a gift of online lessons?
• 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.
(Skonnie Music is an affiliate. We may receive a fee if you sign up, but it does not increase your price at all. We only mention products we totally believe in.)
The cool thing about it 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 (meaning rare) guitars. 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:
- This is a dream-come-true present. You can simply 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.
No one has to know you thought of your guitarist’s gift at the last minute. Your guitarist will feel very special and think it’s awesome that you care about his music and creativity!
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. Any of these gifts are guitarist-approved and will make your guitarist very happy.
