Birthday Gifts for the Rock Star Boyfriend
I always seem to have trouble buying gifts for my boyfriend, especially when it comes to birthday gifts. He doesn’t particularly like clothes and he’s not much a tool guy so while for my dad or grandpa I usually resort to a new handsaw or power drill, I usually draw a blank for my rock star boyfriend. So this year I decided that I would go with gifts that are perfect for the rock star he is, all musically inclined and gifts that will make him go wow. I narrowed it down to a few items, but I’m pretty confident with my list so far.
Though my boyfriend is a huge music fan, he’s just beginning when it comes to a lot of instruments. The guitar is one of them. So when I came across this Fender Starcaster Acoustic Guitar Set, I knew I had found something promising. It’s pretty much perfect for anyone who needs to start from the beginning, and it comes with the guitar, case, a stand, picks, strings and strap as well as a couple of extras for down the road. I felt really comfortable with a product like this because Fender is such a reliable name and thought this was perfect for someone just getting started.
The next thought for me was a piano keyboard. Since we live in a small space a piano is out of the question (although would have made one heck of a birthday present). But keyboards like this Alesis USB MIDI allow you to plug it into your computer through the USB port and helps you to record and edit the melodies you play through the keyboard. It’s small so it makes it easy to put on your lap to play when just messing around. It’s also wonderful for beginners because there’s a ton of programs out there that can help you learn how to play.
The last thought that came to my mind was a pair of nice headphones. I’m not talking the little ear buds you can pick up at the grocery store. My boyfriend is huge on music and if I’m going to buy him something to listen with, it has to be great quality. So after reading all the reviews and suggestions I settled on a pair of Beats Studio Headphones. They come in a huge variety of colors so I can choose his favorite color and score some extra points with him. Though they’re expensive, they’re totally worth it and hopefully will last quite a while.
Shopping for my boyfriend’s birthday this year wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be, especially when I decided to do something music oriented for him. It turns out there’s a huge selection of instruments and accessories that can do a world of good for him and I’m not complaining about spending the extra money. It only helps to ensure that the music he’s playing day and night is worth listening to!
