Well, I love physical albums but my ¨collection¨ goes beyond my records, I love Spotify and how simple it is to use it. Also my cell phone doesn’t have a lot of space so this is great when I want to listen online or offline to my playlists. Buy Gift cards in this link.

Also, great news for families.We have a family plan and I am so happy I found about Spotify Family, now my husband and I can use Premium accounts and still have our separate profiles.
Spotify just released the awesome news that they are upgrading their pricing for families up to 6 people for $14.99 a month.

Obviously, if you are a music lover, you need music 🙂
Going to the record store is one of my favorite things to do, but unfortunately I can’t go there as often as I want to.
Luckily, there are a bunch of ways to get records online Amazon, Ebay, Discogs, Amoeba, but also from some years back, records subscription clubs have been gaining a lot of recognition, mostly because is a excellent way to discover new music and adding essential vinyl to your record collection. Vinyl Me Please is one of my favorites, they send you an exclusive pressed record every month, also includes
Prices start from $23 for your own membership and you can send it as a gift.

Concert tickets:

Concerts are all about the experience of listening to live music and set a memory that will last forever. So concert tickets are a no brainer if you know some artist is coming t your town and you want to give a ticket as a gift.

This could be a double gift, let me explain myself better.

You can surprise your loved one with a ticket to a concert of her/his favorite artist (and that by itself will be awesome) but giving it is half the fun. You can find ideas of how to give concert tickets here.

Apparel:

Of course, wearing the t shirt of your favorite band is the best thing ever, so giving it as a gift is a no-brainer. Is inexpensive but a really emotional gift. (Am I the only one who gets really excited when I see someone I don’t know wear a shirt of my favorite band?)

Rockabilia is a cool website that carries from baby sizes to 3X.

 

Art:

I am obsessed with gallery walls and decorating your wall with art inspiring by music will show everybody the love for music and you will feel embraced by the best of music.
I am going to recommend two artists that captures not only the musicians, but their work, and they nailed it!

I always liked her a lot, now I can tell why, after all of these years, she is still looking for ways to give. That is how Jane & Pearl was born. A watercolor stationery where 100% of the profits go to non-profits organizations that help oppressed women and children.

Her first  project as Jane and Pearl is helping a Syrian Refugee School in Turkey where 250 Syrian refugees children are learning from 8 Syrian Refugee Teachers and 1 support staff. You can check about this school here.
This kids are taught in classrooms that once were shipping containers and besides regular class, they also help them deal with their emotions through art.
