5 Things to get a guitar player
Guys are super hard to shop for. I never know what to get my boyfriend. Luckily, he is a guitar player which makes it a little easier. There are countless things you can get a guitar player. Here are some gift ideas for that amazing musician in your life.
1. A Ditto loop pedal
I actually just recently got my boyfriend this for christmas. He asked for it for about a year until I finally decided he was worth that much money. I’m just kidding. I’d buy him the whole world… if I could afford it. Anyways, the ditto loop pedal is fun and entertaining. Good way to finally get rid of that clingy boyfriend of yours. Kidding again.
With the pedal, you hook it up to your guitar and record a short rhythm on guitar (or any instrument that is able to hook up to it) and it loops over and over. Then, you can add a bunch of layers doing different things! It’s really awesome.
Here is a link to one of the cheaper ones on amazon. Now, there are more brands than just ditto. I’m only telling you ditto because my trusted, guitarist boyriend told me it’s a really good loop pedal brand.
2. Guitar picks
I don’t care how many picks you think your boyfriend has. He doesn’t have enough. I play guitar too. So I know that you can never have enough picks. They dissapear. I never know where any of my picks go. One second theres one in my mouth and next thing I know, it’s no where to be found. I probably eat them. Once again, I’m just kidding. But really, they go missing every time it leaves your hands.
This is a link to a 100 pack of guitar picks. I like the assortment. I’m not really picky when it comes to what type I strum with. See what I did there? This pack has thin, medium, and thick. Your boyfriend may like a specific size, feel free to ask. If you just want to guess, I’d get either an assortment or medium. I actually bought these for myself to fill up my ‘pick’ jar and I love them! It even comes in a cute box.
3. Guitar Pick Keychain
Now, personally, I’ve never had one of these but I think they are so cool. I need to actually get one. It’s just a little pouch that holds a few guitar picks. He will always have a pick with him then.
4. “World’s Okayest Guitar Player” T-shirt
This shirt is so true. I would wear this night and day. Don’t get this for him if he will take it seriously and not as a joke because that wouldn’t be good. Then he would be mad and upset and you will have to burn it… along with his hopes and dreams that you just crushed. Seriously though, if my lovely boyfriend wasn’t going to read this post, I would totally get it for him. But since I know he will read it, it just gave away the surprise. I need a new plan.
5. Amp Coffee Mug
Now, this is a great gift for the coffee-loving, guitarist in your life. It’s so adorable. The shape of the mug is an amp! Who doesn’t think that’s cute?
