Few things are more uncomfortable for a vocalist than a dry, scratchy throat! The Vocalzone Throat Pastilles will relieve the effects of excessive singing, speaking, or smoking. A great little stocking filler or addition to other presents in this singer gift guide. (https://www.vocalzone.com/buy/pastilles/vocalzone-throat-pastilles/)
For the glamorous vocalist in your life, why not treat them to a bit of sparkle! There is plenty of music-inspired jewellery with microphone and musical note charms, designed to suit a variety of tastes. With this little bit of added bling, you can be sure they’ll remember you every time they’re about to hit the stage.
Every music lover needs a good pair of headphones for recording or simply listening to their favourite tunes while on the go! There are plenty of options available to suit all budgets and requirements, however, we’d recommend choosing over-ears as they are much less harmful for your hearing. Sound quality is always a must, so be sure to try them out for yourself or read the reviews.
Live music, gigs and loud practice sessions can have a detrimental effect on our hearing. Protect the musician in your life by gifting them some high-quality ear plugs! While there are plenty available on the market, getting custom moulds will be the most comfortable option and provide the best audio representation. These can get pretty expensive, so why not get some through Musician’s Union. This is the perfect gift idea for singers who have not yet taken advantage of their service.
