If your partner fancies himself as a bit of a rock star, why not channel these passions when searching for a Father’s Day gift. If you have a music-loving man in your life, here are some suggestions to make shopping simple.
Do you share a love of live music? Has it been a while since you managed to get to a gig or concert? Does your hubby have a favorite band or genre of music? Search through local directories or use the Internet to have a look for upcoming events in your area. Book tickets to a festival or seats at a concert. If you have to travel out of town, see if you can get a babysitter and make a weekend of it. There’s nothing quite like watching your favorite artists perform in the flesh.
Merchandise and memorabilia
When you met your other half were they wearing a band t-shirt? Was their room full of tour posters or ticket stubs? If your partner has a growing collection of music-related memorabilia, why not add to it? Although there are stores you can visit, you’re probably best shopping online. Have a look for signed t-shirts or old school posters. If the man in your life is a fan of newer music, visit the group’s website to check out their latest merchandise.
CDs and recording sessions
Do you have an old CD from back in the day when your hubby was trying to make it to the big time? If so, why not check out sites like Nationwide Disc? You could order a newer, remastered version. Have they always talked about being a recording artist, but never quite got around to laying down the tracks? If so, investigate studio sessions. Even if you just book an hour slot, this could make a long-held dream come true.
If you’re eager to push the boat out this Father’s Day, visit some music stores and have a look at instruments. Does your husband collect guitars? Has your fiance been wanting to replace their keyboard for months? If you can’t stretch to a new instrument, check out second-hand items online.
If you’re looking for little things to make the man in your life smile, go for some kitsch accessories. Think drumstick shaped pens or a personalized name tag for a guitar case. You don’t have to spend a lot to buy a thoughtful gift. If you’re feeling romantic, you could also go for something like a vinyl record with the lyrics of your first dance. Or stick to something simple like a playlist of your favorite songs.
Father’s Day is just around the corner. If you’re struggling for ideas and you’ve got a music lover in your midst, hopefully, these ideas will help. Be original, get creative, and listen out for hints. If you have an idea in mind but you can’t seem to find what you’re looking for, use the Internet. Go for thoughtful material gifts, or treat your love to an unforgettable experience. Good luck!
