Christmas is almost here! No, really, it’s only one week away. If you have yet to buy any gifts or are stuck on what to get someone, that’s where SoulBounce’s 2018 Holiday Gift Guide For Music Lovers comes in handy. For the third year in a row, our annual gift guide is chock full with this year’s must-have gifts for music lovers – from the casual fan to hardcore enthusiasts such as ourselves. Like we have for our 2016 and 2017 holiday gift guides, SoulBounce’s editorial staff searched far and wide for the perfect gifts that we’d love to see under our very own Christmas trees. (Not only are we music tastemakers, but we’re music-related gift tastemakers, too, in case you didn’t know.)
For our 2018 gift guide we’ve gathered up everything from practical gifts to splurges, but nothing on this list will break the bank, with even the most expensive suggestion coming in under $200. Whatever you decide to spend, our gift guide also encourages you to make the dollar circulate in the Black community with over half of the items on this list being sold by Black-owned businesses, with a special emphasis on Black woman-owned businesses.
The beauty of SoulBounce’s 2018 Holiday Gift Guide For Music Lovers is that most of these selections are good for year-round gift giving. Whether you need a Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year’s, Valentine’s Day, graduation, birthday, housewarming or just because gift, impress the music lover in your life by starting your search right here.
