Shopping for presents can be tough, whether it’s for Christmas, a Birthday, Mother’s or Father’s Day or some other occasion.
But shopping for someone with a strong interest in something makes it easier. And since you’re here, you must be shopping for a singer.
Singer can mean many different things. It can be someone who simply enjoys karaoke or someone who makes a living using their voice.
I made sure to take this into account and have compiled a list of great gifts for aspiring singers and professional vocalists alike.
These are the best gifts for singers and I’m sure you’ll find one that appeals to the vocalist in your life. Even if you don’t, seeing my suggestions should hopefully awaken additional gift ideas within your brain.
Gift Ideas For Singers
A Wireless Karaoke Microphone
A mic like the 3-in-1 Wireless Karaoke Microphone from BONAOK is a great gift for any vocalist. It has internal speakers that deliver pretty good sound quality, but it can also connect to external speakers via Bluetooth or an audio cable. You can also connect it to your smartphone and make use of karaoke apps or Youtube.
This mic has a triple-layered filter head with additional de-noising technology to filter airflow and wind noise. This greatly reduces the noise level, making vocals perfectly clear.
The two internal speakers make use of a bass diaphragm cavity to improve sound quality by 30%. The result is a sound that mimics what you would get in a real karaoke booth. That said, sound quality is much better when connected to a high-quality external speaker.
The BONAOK mic is powered by a built-in lithium battery that lets you sing from 4 to 10 hours, depending on volume, heaviness of use and whether you are using Bluetooth. Speaking of Bluetooth, it works with both Android and iOS and has a transmission distance of ten meters (about 33 feet).
One thing to be aware of: this microphone is for fun. It is not capable of producing professional level sound recordings. For that you want one of these recording mics. If you need a mic for live shows, try one of these. Both types of mics also make great presents for singers.
A Pitch Pipe Tuner For Vocalists
Every musician needs a tuner and singers are no exception. This 13 Note Chromatic F-F Scale Pitch Pipe Tuner from That’s My Tune makes a perfect gift for singers. It will help them ensure they sing in the correct pitch, which ends up training their ear and adding more color to their vocal tone.
Chromatic pitch pipes are often used incorrectly, which causes them to be inaccurate. The addition of a sliding mouth piece and note selector ensures that this tuner is always used correctly and always leads to an accurate pitch.
The That’s My Tune 13-note tuner comes with a lifetime warranty. It can be returned at any time if something goes wrong. A tuner is a great gift for any vocalist, but it is one of the best gifts for choir singers especially.
Musical Notes Scarf
Singing-themed clothing makes for some of the best Christmas gifts for singers and practical items like this Musical Notes Print Infinity Loop Scarf from Lina & Lily are my favorite. This item is meant for female singers. If you’re shopping for a man, musical-themed neckties always make excellent gifts for male singers.
This scarf is made from a lightweight polyester that feels incredibly soft. It is 35 inches wide and 70 inches long, meaning it can loop around twice. It is available in black, dark gray, dark red, navy blue and white. All colors are adorned with musical notes.
The Lina & Lily infinity loop scarf looks great with many different outfits and lets everyone know that the wearer is a musician. It is stylish, comfortable and inexpensive, earning it a place on any list of good gifts for singers.
A Vocal Dampener
Warming up and practicing are both essential for singers, but doing so can disturb others, especially if you live in tight quarters or somewhere with thin walls. That’s where a vocal dampener like this one from Beltbox comes in.
It can reduce the sound a performer makes by up to 30 dB, making it possible for a vocalist to warm up or practice without disturbing those around them. A removable strap means it can be worn hands-free in case the singer needs to play an instrument or practice choreography.
The Beltbox dampener is waterproof, so it can be used in the shower as well. This also makes it easy to clean. It comes with a cotton carrying bag. It is a great little product that basically allows a singer to take their warm-up room with them wherever they go.
Personal Steam Inhaler
Singers sometimes get sick, but they still have to perform. Other times, too much performing ends up damaging their voice. In either case, a personal steam inhaler like this one from Vicks can be a life saver. Few things do more to soothe the vocal cords than warm steam.
Vocal cords need to be properly lubricated in order to ensure the best possible performance. Colds, flu, too much strain or dry climates can all dehydrate the body and, by extension, the vocal cords. The Vicks inhaler produces warm steam that soothes and lubricates the throat and nasal passages.
Any vocalist whose vocal cords are suffering can benefit from 5 to 15 minutes with this inhaler. It is a wonderful tool for maintaining vocal health. It has a soft, comfortable plastic hood that makes using it a breeze. It is compact and lightweight, so it can come along to any performance or on any tour. It is covered by a 1-year warranty.
Some people would never wear anything like this, while others absolutely love it. If the singer in your life is one of the latter, this Silver Plated Crystal Black Karaoke Microphone Necklace, or something similar, might be the perfect present.
It is lead free and plated in silver, with crystals embedded around the top. It is one inch tall and comes with an 18 inch chain. It is cute and well-made, ensuring it will last a long time.
It comes in a gift box, making it ideal to give as a present. Of course, this is only true if the vocalist in your life is the type of person who would enjoy a gift like this. If you’re not sure, I advise erring on the side of caution and getting something else instead, ideally something practical like all the previous suggestions above.
