Vibes High-Fidelity Earplugs

If your gift recipient is someone who prefers going out and listening to their favorite artist live, then these concert earplugs are a must-have.

With these concert earplugs, the concert-goer in your life won't have to worry about the dilemma of sacrificing their eardrums or listening experience.

iWalk Mini Portable Charger for iPhone with Built-in Cable

Speaking of concerts, one of the worst things that can happen is your phone dying, especially right as you go to take a video of your favorite artist the one time they look right in your direction while performing! With this mini portable charger, which is compatible with most iPhone models, you can make sure the music experience doesn't fall flat and your phone stays ready for that perfect angle. This mini power bank is especially perfect for concerts and festivals because it doesn't require a charging cable.

Anker PowerCore 10000 Portable Charger

If the concert-goer in your life isn't an iPhone user, or prefers power efficiency over compact sizing, this Anker portable charger is the perfect option. The high-speed charging technology ensures that your phone is ready to go before the artist reaches the stage, but the power bank is still light and compact enough to fit in your pocket.

Ticket Stub Diary

After going to all those concerts, the next step for your music-loving gift recipient is most likely to store every ticket stub as a souvenir from the experience. With this ticket stub diary, they'll be able to preserve their precious memories from the concerts forever without worrying about wrinkling the ticket stubs or stashing them in the back of a drawer. The diary can also fit tickets from movies, sporting events, Broadway shows and more!

Turntable Cheese Board

What type of music does cheese listen to? R&Brie! OK, we promise this turntable cheese board isn't as bad as that music pun.

If an actual record player is more your tune, then look no further than this portable suitcase record player that features built-in speakers and a three-speed, belt-driven turntable that's sure to please any vinyl lover. But don't let the retro look fool you— the record player has modern technology features like bluetooth compatibility and a headphone jack for personal listening to allow you ultimate listening flexibility. It also comes in a variety of colors, so you can pick the one that would best match your gift recipient's home decor.

Vinyl Record Shelf

This steel vinyl record shelf that reads "now playing, is the perfect way for vinyl enthusiasts to display whatever record is currently on deck or to showcase the cover art of their favorite album. It comes in 11 different colors and serves as the finishing touch to their set up when mounted above their record player.

Boundless Audio Record Cleaner Brush

Whether your loved one already has a record player, or you're gifting them one this season (perhaps the one above?), they'll appreciate this audio record cleaner brush to help keep their record player and vinyls in tip-top shape for many years to come. The carbon fiber bristles will remove dust without scratching the record's surface, while the electrically conductive frame removes any static to reduce unwanted clicks and pops while listening to their favorite tunes.

Because one shelf isn't enough for all of the vinyl records the music lover in your life has in their collection, you can also gift them this bamboo storage holder, which can hold between 40 or 50 records. This way, they can easily flip through all of their records and store them all in one convenient place.

JBL Clip 4: Portable Speaker with Bluetooth

Nowadays, everyone seems to have at least one portable speaker in their repertoire, but whether they have a high-quality, top-rated speaker is another question.

That's where the JBL Clip 4 portable speaker comes in. Not only does it check all the boxes, the speaker has 14,700+ 5-star reviews on Amazon, so you know it's reliable.
