Awesome Gifts For Guitar Players

Whether for birthdays, Christmas, Father's Day, or any other special occasion, there are many gifts for guitarists that you can give a to a real guitar lover. From expensive (or not so expensive) guitars, to various accessories and fun stuff, there is plenty to choose from. Never to be said that guitar players can't get appropriate gifts from their family and friends.

Here you will find a great selection of presents for guitarists, whether professional players or hobbyists.

Fun gift idea: Lead Guitar Player Smurf

Finding the right music gifts for guitar players has become much easier with the recommendations below. Most of these ideas are inexpensive, extremely useful, and some quite fun to own.

Enjoy the selection below and hopefully you will find that perfect guitar gift for that special person in your life.

When You Know Someone Who Is Playing The Guitar


My brother is a big guitar player (hobbyist only, although I've told him numerous times that he should do it professionally). He started to play the guitar at a very early age - actually I did try it too along with him, but I never really took to it.

However my brother, for him this hobby became one of the most enjoyable things he's been doing, and he's been at it for over 30 years now. He has a large collection of guitars and he keeps buying a new one every year or so because apparently each of them sounds different from the previous one. For me they all sound the same, but then what do I know.

Luckily however, this great hobby makes it easy for me to buy him birthday gifts because there are just so many things that a guitarist would love. I bought him over the years tshirts, a few guitar miniatures, some very exclusive guitar picks taken from eBay, even a silver tiny guitar chain, and a few other things. Once I even pinched in with some money for him to buy a really cool and expensive guitar.

So if you do know someone who is playing the guitar, there are tons of great things you can buy him or her, many gifts for guitarists that could make them happy only as happy as a hobby guitarist can get.

I hope the gifts listed here will help you choose something appropriate for your husband, friend, brother or anyone who you know enjoys playing the guitar.

Mini Collectible Guitars

Guitar T-Shirts

Guitar T-Shirt Blue Flaming Guitar
Guitar T-Shirt Blue Flaming Guitar

Guitar T-Shirt Blue Flaming Guitar

This is one of the coolest gifts for guitarists. Every guitar player loves a great tshirt, and what better shirts to have than those featuring ... guitars!

You can choose between 5 different sizes and while the shirt color is only black, it really goes well with the awesome blue guitar - btw it's also printed small on the back of the shirt.

Every avid guitarist will enjoy owning such a t-shirt!

Electronic Guitar Shirt

Electronic Guitar Shirt

I have to admit: I love this shirt. This is the very one I gave my guitarist brother as Christmas gift last year. It's simply awesome. I bought it from Amazon (so I haven't seen it before he actually got it as it went directly to his address), but he's over the moon about it, he praises very highly and it's become one of his very favorite shirts.

You can choose from 5 different sizes and what's cool about it is that you can actually play the guitar on the shirt. I mean for real. Sure, you can only play the major chords, but this t-shirt is a gift for fun, not for playing guitar on it for real! If this isn't a cool gift for a guitar lover, then I don't know what!

Guitar Tools And Kits

Farley's Deluxe Guitar Tool

Farley's Deluxe Guitar Tool

A very inexpensive, but useful gift is Farley's Deluxe Guitar Tool. It has so many small tools in one that your guitarist friend of family member will never need another set of tools for his guitar. Better yet, buy one for every guitar he has so he can put it in his guitar cases. Many call it the 'Swiss Army Knife of guitarists' and with good reason.

It's made of quality material and it's really an all-purpose piece. Now there is no longer need to have many single tools for this or that particular task of fine-tuning or fixing the guitar. Everything is neatly in one place, in one single tool.

You get here the following tools in one:

* Patented carbide steel cutting blade

* Taylor made grip

* Professional quality hardened steel hex wrenches

* Phillips and flathead screwdrivers

* Nylon web carrying case

CruzTools GrooveTech Guitar Kit

Another great set of tools for guitarists, this time the separate tools are in a lovely case. You get the following tools for guitarists:

* Hex key set (metric and fractional)

* Thickness gauge

* Cable and strap

* Ruler, capo and cutter

* 6-in-1 screwdriver

* Thickness gauge

* Ruler

* Capo

* Cutters

* String winder

* LED flashlight

This is a great set of tools to adjust and everything you need on your guitar to make it sound much better and improve its quality. All tools are made of quality materials, which makes them long lasting for every guitar professional who needs to fine tune their guitar on a regular basis.

Guitar Books

The Lights of Marfa: One of the World's Great Guitar Player's Amazing Encounters with God

The Lights of Marfa: One of the World's Great Guitar Player's Amazing Encounters with God

Any guitar lover will enjoy reading about famous guitar players. This book is perfect for the occasion. It features Doyle Dykes talking about his life as one of the most prominent fingerstyle guitarists

His stories are compelling, heart warming and sometimes sad. Somebody called this book the Chicken Soup For Christian Guitarists and with good reason.

You don't even have to be a Christian style guitar player to enjoy this book, as it contains so much more than just about his guitar experiences.

And if you ask me, you don't even have to be a guitar player to pick up this book and read it cover to cover, it's that good. Worth every single dime!

Music Theory for Guitarists: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know But Were Afraid to Ask

Music Theory for Guitarists: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know But Were Afraid to Ask (Guitar Method)

Many guitar players love playing the guitar but would never pick a book about learning the guitar theory - and yet this is one of the most important (albeit a bit boring) aspect of learning to play the guitar really well. Now here is your chance to help by giving the book as a gift. They can't even say they didn't have the money to buy it, or find any other excuse NOT to own the book. And trust me, once they have the book in their hands, curiosity will get the better of them and they WILL pick it up and flip through it. And once they're there, the next step is simply sit down and read it - and practice. This is one of those gifts that is not only awesome but extremely useful as well to any guitarist that takes himself seriously in his craft.

      Nice list! I think the guitar tools and books are what "my guitarist" will be most interested in- mini guitars and accessories would just be more "stuff" but the books and tools actually help them enjoy and improve their guitar ability.

      I didn't know there's so much stuff you can give a guitarist, aside from the usual guitar case and strings. This lens gave me such cool ideas, thanks for the tips.

      Personally, I'd prefer a cool Ibanez shirt or a CD I don't have yet. I do like the idea of books, though. There's enough of them to please almost everyone, no matter how picky people can be, plus one can never learn enough.

      Using a FRM100TR myself, I must inform you the name at the Mr Big mini guitar is wrong. It's a Fireman (or reverse Iceman), not an Iceman. Call me a nitpicker if you like, but there's a big difference there.

      Nice selection of gifts nonetheless, great suggestions here!
