NEXT This slow-motion video will have you in tears for all the right reasons Show/Hide comments [ 13 ] These are awesome ideas! I have a hard time getting gifts for my husband because his interests are so specific and he's been doing the same hobbies for 15+ years (guitar, origami, magic tricks), which means he is very particular about supplies, etc… Point is: finding good gifts that fit his specific needs is a pain in the ass. Thanks for this post! Reply my husband very well may be getting a mini theremin for christmas. thank you! 1 agrees Reply You're welcome! Mine got it last year. ๐ 2 agree Reply A mini theremin. This absolutely solves my problem of what to get my husband for Christmas! Reply There are other options for inexpensive theremins as well. I can't remember what brand mine is (I wanted to say Moog but I don't think mine is quite that nice), but I got a theremin for my birthday a few years back and it's one of the coolest presents I've ever gotten. Mine is small-ish and black plastic with only a couple of knobs, but it does the job– and it's super fun at parties! (Although you have to go with an expensive high-quality one for actual musicality– the small cheap ones are best for "woo I'm a ghost/alien" sound effects.) Reply Buy me the Korg Synthesizer! Now I am off to buy a piano ๐ yay! Reply That wallet is pretty sweet! I also really like the idea of the Pick Punch, but alas, Mr. Chi is extremely particular about his picks and I doubt he'd ever use it–I just can't see him approving of any nonstandard pick material ๐ 2 agree Reply I have always wanted a theremin… FOR THE LOVE OF GOD NO MORE TCHOTCHKES WITH TREBLE CLEFS ON THEM. (that bracelet is pretty, I mean more of the cheese slicing board or wall plaque or notepad or picture frame variety. All of which I've received. AND DEEPLY APPRECIATED BUT STOP.) What I always want, as an elitist classical musician? SCORES. Or gift certificates to buy scores. They can be a$$pensive, especially if it's not in the public domain. It's not as sexy as all this awesomeness, but would make me exceedingly happy. 2 agree Reply Amen! We have been on the receiving end of giant metal wall art treble cleffs more times than I would have liked to be. But I stick by that bracelet. ๐ 1 agrees Reply I got my person the wallet. He has a pick holder keychain, but his wallet broke the day this was published. I also get him the sleep headphones. He watches movies every night, so this might be great. We'll see. Reply I got my person the sleep headphones too! ๐ Reply That piano key doormat made me sigh longingly as soon as I saw it. Reply This post is so awesome!!! I will be getting the sleep phones for my husband for v-day! Thanks for posting this!!! Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
