Bookmans is chock-full of ideal gifts for your friends and family this holiday season. Everything from the rare and first editions for the book fiend, film classics for the Robert Osborne in your life or Goku figurines for your Dragon Ball Z loving little sis can be found on our orange shelves. But what about the musically inclined individuals on your holiday shopping list? Purchasing a whole instrument may be a bit much or maybe not. We don’t pry. But let’s say your giving style is understated. Bookmans can help you with a few gift ideas sure to impress even Mozart himself.

For your friend who wants to pick up a new instrument but needs a push to take the leap. Bookmans carries a variety of colorful ukuleles. Ukuleles are notoriously good for quick mastery. Our ukes (as the pros call them) come with cool designs so you can pick one to match the recipient’s personality. Place your awesome gift under the tree in the soft case it comes with for easy peasy gift wrapping. Alternatively, keep it for yourself, learn a holiday tune or two and make your present the gift of performance.

Pick up stocking stuffers for your Jimmy Page-worshiping brother is as simple as selecting from our bevy of rockstar accessories. Guitar strings, drum sticks, straps and more teem with the potential energy to go kinetic in the right hands. Pick up a Snark tuner. These tuners can be used on any stringed instrument and their light up screen makes getting the right notes easy. We use them in the store to tune our instruments. Then stick a Dunlop Gel Winder (not a noise maker) and a packet of guitar picks and you’ve got yourself the ultimate Page-approved stocking.

Some musicians play by ear and some play by sight. If you know your musician friend enjoys reading music as he or she plays, then check the song books and sheet music available at your local Bookmans. From instructional books that teach you how to play an instrument, to song books for their fave album or, if you feel so inclined, pick the complete discography of their favorite artist. Books for piano, guitar, banjo and more are eagerly waiting for a song bird to take them home.
