With the season of gift-giving upon us, choosing the ideal gift for the music enthusiast in your life can be a challenge. Just like music, its extensions are subjective and won’t necessarily be the perfect fit for everyone you send presents to.

To help narrow down your choices, we’ve selected several products that can fulfil the different needs of music obsessives. From double vinyl LPs like Kaytranada’s BUBBA, to memoirs such as Flea’s Acid For The Children, and gadgets like Dior’s leather AirPod case, this music gift guide is bound to include something that will bring joy this holiday season.

Read on for the complete selection and let us know in the comments what’s on your music wishlist.

Wu-Tang Clan Art Collection

Absolut Art

Absolut ArtAbsolut Art 

Contemporary artists have come together for a collection of signed, limited-edition prints that celebrate the everlasting legacy of the Wu-Tang Clan. Curated by Wu-Tang Productions and Wu-Tang Brand co-founder Oliver “Power” Grant, alongside independent curator Diya Vij, Absolut Art & Wu-Tang’s collaborative project highlights the group’s importance and impact on the cultural landscape with member portraits, reflections of their music’s motifs and the iconic “W” logo.


Acid for the Children: A Memoir

Acid for the Children: A Memoir
$17.99 USD

Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Michael “Flea” Ballard details his upbringing in Acid for the Children: A Memoir. RHCP fans may be dismayed to know that the book ends right when the band begins, but Flea’s unconventional upbringing from a regular life in the suburbs of New York to a slightly messy yet spiritual, bohemian lifestyle with his new step-father in Los Angeles makes for an interesting read into the decorated musician’s background.


Post Malone iPhone Case

This one goes out to all the Postys who make up the reason for Hollywood’s Bleeding ending 2019 as biggest album of the year. It’s been a huge year for Post Malone, and this iPhone case, which comes in iPhone sizes 6 to 11, is the perfect fan fare. While included is protection against dust, dirt and dings, this case does not however, protect you from the haters; but to quote Austin, “I had a thousand bad times so what’s another time to me?”


Dior Leather AirPod Case

Dior
Calfskin Leather AirPod Case
$350 USD
DiorDior 

As far as AirPod cases go, Dior’s black leather AirPod Case is as good as they get. Albeit a tad expensive, we believe when it comes to protection for your earphones, let’s be honest: go hard or go naked. Made in fine ass Italy and stamped with a rubber “Dior” signature on the outside, you are not only paying for that smooth calfskin leather with each touch, but also that subtle fire your fit has been missing.

Featuring rare outtakes, photoshoots, iconic album covers, interviews, and more, the book spotlights industry legends and aptly captures the bravado of the culture, while celebrating both the musical and visual artists who have shaped the sound and identity of hip-hop into the sonic powerhouse it is today.

J Dilla – Donuts
$11.51 USD
AmazonAmazon 

If you love music, then there’s a high likelihood that the ongoing series of “short books about great albums” presented by 33 1/3 is going to have something for you. Some of the best music writers from around the globe hone their craft with long-form essays on their favorite records, telling in-depth stories about the production of an album, the themes throughout, and unheard stories about the artist during that time period. Jason Ferguson’s J Dilla – Donuts is an emotional dive into the legendary producer’s last album. The project was created entirely from Dilla’s hospital bed with the understanding that he had only a limited time left before a rare blood disease and ultimately lupus ultimately took his life. The 130-page offering pulls at your heartstrings and offers up a theory on why the ever-mysterious Dilla used some of the samples throughout.

A solid bluetooth smart speaker is essential to a music lover’s listening experience headed into the holidays. Not only is portability important when jumping around to different relatives’ homes, but quality sound and connectivity need to be included too. That’s where the new Sonos Move comes in. Drop resistant and weatherproof, you can use Google Assistant and Apple AirPlay by connecting through Bluetooth or over a wireless network. With 10 hours of battery, you can leave the cords at home too. We highly recommend adding our HYPEBEAST: Happy Holidays Playlist to your queue to help you get started.
