Summer Gifts for Music Lovers

Music-themed gifts aren’t hard to find if you look in the right place, and time it well. During the summer there are a lot of activities that can and do involve music outside. Yet there are also the quiet, gentle evenings when indoor music is just what that special someone needs to help them wind down from a long day. Consider some of the gifts below for your loved one this summer.

Guitar or other portable instrument: If your loved one is musically inclined, why not offer something that can be used around the campfire? There is nothing so pleasant as a gentle breeze accompanied by a starlit night, flickers of flames, and background music to relax to.

Music box: A music box is one of the music-themed gifts that can be used after the excitement of the day is over. This is a great gift for winter or summer, but may be a pleasant summer surprise. Some summer days are so busy and active that a gentle tune is necessary to calm the spirit at the end of the day.

Concert tickets: Summer is a great time to go to an outdoor concert. There are plenty of bands to choose from in almost every city around the country. Even local bands can make an evening more fun. If you have to take a trip to see a concert, be sure to plan a night of camping, or a stay at a hotel to round the day off.

Summer feels like freedom. Nothing quite makes that feeling hit home like some great music in the background.

Gifts for Beauty School Grads

There are so many young adults graduating from different schools that it can be hard to find the perfect gift for everyone. Beauty school grads often get overlooked because people don’t realize all of the details of what those students have to go through. You can use something as simple as a jewelry box to show your beauty school grad that you recognize his or her hard work. A few gifts to suit the profession will also be appreciated.

Beautiful Gifts: People appreciate getting what they need to get the job done right. At the same time, everyone likes a gift that is just for pleasure. A beauty school grad is in a profession to enhance beauty. Why not offer him or her a special gift that demonstrates your understanding of their appreciation for beauty?

Give the Gift of Music!

When you think of music-themed gifts, you may be able to make a list of items including mp3 players, ear buds, amplifiers, and speakers. But if you step away from the technology of music and look for a more personal gift, you may find that you come up with much more memorable items. Sheet music? Music-themed posters? Musical-note jewelry? Yes, yes, and yes. Music is such a broad area, and everyone relates to music differently, which makes purchasing a music-themed gift rather simple if you know the recipient well. Some people are musicians; others simply enjoy music; but knowing just a few facts about the type of music or the way the person listens to music can help you choose the perfect gift.

For a mother who loves classical music, why not get her a box to store trinkets in that plays her favorite tune? For the teenager who is just discovering the joys of classic rock, a record player and some of those classics on vinyl make a great gift. An iTunes playlist made specifically with the gift recipient in mind is the modern “mix tape.” Everything from wind chimes to high tech mixing boards can be considered to be music-themed gifts. Let your imagination and your knowledge of the gift recipient help you choose the gift of music for every occasion. Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, friends, and lovers will appreciate you thinking of them and their personal taste in music when you are coming up with gift ideas.

Commemorative Gifts to Cherish

Do you feel stressed when it is time to purchase a gift for an important occasion? Many people have no problem picking up birthday or holiday gifts, but commemorative gifts for graduation, anniversaries, first communion, or retirement are a little more difficult.

For many shoppers this means looking for a gift that will not be outgrown or shoved into a closet and forgotten.

These are items that will be displayed and used on a daily basis. Personalized and custom gifts are available for all price ranges and will be a gift that will be cherished and passed down to future generations.

Commemorate an Engagement with a Music Box Gift

One of the moments of life that a woman will always remember and forever treasure is the moment when she was proposed to by her future husband. With her acceptance, the couple becomes engaged, and the family and friends wait for the moment when they will be joined in matrimony. The engagement itself, however, should not go unrecognized. Many couples have formal engagement portraits taken and send out a formal announcement of the event. An engagement is a wonderful time to give the new couple a gift of a music box.

Why is a musical box a great gift idea for an engagement? Nothing says romance like news of the engagement. It tells the world that two people have found love and have made a commitment to one another. It is a reason for joy and celebration. The keepsakes that play music today are much more sophisticated than those of years ago.

If the proposal took place in a famous setting, the box might depict that setting and be a reminder of that romantic moment. Another way the box might make a perfect keepsake is if it is customized to play a couple’s special song. There are many romantic boxes that depict scenes of love and romance.

A music box as a gift for an engagement is appropriate from either member of the couple, their parents, or anyone who appreciates the love the couple has for one another. Many retailers also permit personalization of the boxes. Names and dates of the proposal can be engraved on the box as a constant reminder of the time their lives together truly began.

Music Boxes as Baby Shower Gifts

There is no time more special in a woman’s life then when she is expecting a baby. It is a time filled with joy and great expectations for what the future will bring. One of the things she looks forward to is the tradition of the baby shower. The baby shower is a time-honored tradition where, historically, female friends and family gather to shower the expectant mother with presents she will need for the baby. Today, men are being included on the guest lists more frequently. With so many people attending the baby shower, it can be difficult to find unique gifts for women that will be meaningful at this special time.

A music box has the potential to be that type of gift. Unlike adorable baby outfits, boxes of disposable diapers, or cute little bibs with humorous sayings, a music box will last well beyond the diaper years, giving the mother-to-be a precious memento to treasure for a lifetime.

The music box is also an ideal gift to help sooth and comfort the little bundle of joy. Babies love music, and these gifts can help moms sooth their babies back to sleep in the middle of the night with a few sweet notes.

When you look for unique gifts for women who are expecting, consider gifts that benefit both the baby and the mom. Music boxes are heirloom-quality gifts that can be passed down from one generation to the next. Unlike a pail of diapers or a few nightgowns, your gift will last for years; maybe even generations.

Protect Your Jewelry with a Jewelry Box

Jewelry boxes aren’t just a great decorative piece for your bedroom; they also serve to protect your most valuable pieces. All too often, jewelry sits in the bottom of a drawer where it can become tangled and damaged. By storing your pieces in a jewelry container that is designed to hold each piece, you can protect your favorite pieces and save on the cost of repairing or replacing them.

Jewelry storage boxes have compartments to keep necklaces away from other pieces, so the chains don’t get kinked or tangled. With protective slots and straps, each piece is safe and secure within the container. Ring organizers prevent stones and bands from becoming scratched, and smaller compartments can hold lockets and charms until they are ready to be added to a necklace or bracelet.

Storing your jewelry away properly also prevents it from becoming aged by sunlight, or tarnished by exposure to the elements. When you store your jewelry in a proper container, you won’t need to polish and clean your pieces as frequently.

Of course, there is much to be said for the designs of these boxes. While they hold all your beautiful pieces inside, they also help to add beauty to your home. You can choose from modern or antique-inspired designs in a range of colors and shapes, so you can find the one that truly fits your personality.

Before you toss your favorite jewelry in a drawer, consider investing in an elegant jewelry box that protects your precious gems, while adding a wonderful decorative element to your home.
