Gift Ideas for Singers, Songwriters, Musicians and Speakers 2011

I don't know about you, but the recent advertizements for Black Friday shopping (having to compete with  Black Friday Ninjas?!!) leaves me... well... afraid! I decided to stay home, play with my husband and dog and cook a chicken... (go ahead, call me chicken).

For those of you who, like me, have not yet completed your Christmas and holiday shopping, here's my annual list of suggestions for the vocalist or speaker you love (feel free, of course, to send hints from this list to those who love YOU:) and yes, I am shamelessly including some of my goodies in here. OK here we go...

Gifts $25 and under:
 Gifts $25 - $50:
  • A set of Hearfones
  • A training product for voice-over talent
  • 1/2 hour vocal lesson with me (personally, phone or Skype)
  • A gift card for iTunes
  • Tickets to a writer's night, fav artist's concert, symphony, ballet, musical, play, art museum or other creative event. Great for inspiration!
  • A tune up or oil change from a trusted mechanic to get to the gig
  • A music stand
  • Dinner out, listening to someone else play for a change!
Gifts $50 - $150:
Gifts over $150:
  • Karaoke system (I used a VocoPro system recently during a vocal seminar I gave in Florida, and was impressed with it for the price)
  • A series of vocal lessons (contact me for a discount on 6 or more lessons)
  • Speaker docks for mp3 players or other gear
  • Membership with NSAI

Gifts way over that...
Gifts that keep on giving:

And pleeeeaaaasssseee... help us with your suggestions, too! I'd love to collect a great pile of happy wishes here... just put it in the comments to this post.
