Looking for the best gifts for singers and you are fresh out of creative ideas? Well, I am no singer myself (unless singing under the shower counts), but like you, I am also fortunate to have a singer friend. And after many unsuccessful music gifts, I gradually became the champion of choosing great gifts for singers (at least according to my friend).
Therefore, I decided to create a list of the best gift ideas for singers, which will make you a champion as well. On this list, you will be able to find creative musical gifts for adults and kids, all kinds of singer accessories, and lovely presents for beginners and pros. Let’s dive right in!
A thrilling experience present for singers
For you and me, going to a concert is an exciting experience, but for our singer friends, it is so much more. For them, it is an opportunity to see their idols doing what they do best, critically evaluate their performances, learn from them, and immerse themselves in music. For them, it is an educational, spiritual, and truly unforgettable event. Thus, concert tickets always make for a superb musical birthday gift or Christmas present.
In case your singer friend prefers to listen to music in the comfort of his or her own home, you can opt for a monthly/yearly subscription to a great music streaming service, such as Apple Music, Spotify, or Tidal.
A great gift for singers who are beginners
To sing like Beyoncé takes a lot of work. OK, Beyoncé may have unbelievable natural talent and a God-given killer voice, however, even singers who are blessed with fewer predispositions can improve their singing skills considerably. As such, singing lessons are a great gift for choir singers and solo singers alike and would be highly appreciated by both beginners and pros, who wish to keep training their vocals.
Instead of private online singing lessons, your friend might prefer to practice their skills with a singing app. In this case, you can buy them a subscription to Swiftscales Vocal Trainer (available on iOS and Android) or Learn to Sing (available on iOS and Android).
A thoughtful personalized gift for musicians
Let’s face it. Both beginners and professional singers generally wish nothing more but to become published artists and to create their own record. Plus, they probably rehearse receiving a Grammy with a shampoo bottle, too! You may not be able to help them with the Grammy, but you sure can create their own vinyl record. Simply upload their songs (or covers), add their photo, and include a personalized note. This gift will surely make them sing with joy!
A cool gift for musicians
A singer usually needs two main things – their own voice and a microphone. Sure you can help them perfect their voice by buying them singing lessons, but you can also help them get a great microphone. When it comes to microphones, it’s best to opt for a multifunctional wireless karaoke mic that can also be used as a speaker, player, and recorder. Leave choosing the mic which your friend will use for professional purposes to the pros!
A unique gift for musicians
If you are looking for a unique and really cool gift for singers, you may have just found the perfect one! A showerhead speaker would make a spectacular gift for both shower-level singers like me and total pros. I mean – who doesn’t love to sing under the shower? And when we do it, we could surely use a background tune, which would make us feel (and sound – duh) like stars!
Consider buying your friend a wireless Bluetooth showerhead speaker with a microphone to answer calls. Alternatively, you could also go with a regular waterproof Bluetooth speaker, which can be used under the shower, in the backyard, or even at the beach.
A charming present for singers
What to gift someone who loves singing? How about a lovely singer-themed piece of jewelry? You and me, we both have singer friends and we both know that there are only a few people as passionate about anything as singers are about music. And when people feel this kind of love for something, they often wish to express it in all sorts of ways, including by frosting themselves with jewelry that proudly displays their interests.
A musical gift for music lovers
I believe it is safe to assume that your singer friend is also a major music lover. If I happen to be correct, then buying high-quality audio headphones that produce crystal clear sound and loud yet subtle bass and will allow them to immerse themselves in catchy tunes, would be a great gift idea for singers.
A fun present for singers
Singers who also happen to be very social and fun and appreciate a pleasant game night with their friends and family members every once in a while would go crazy about a fun board game that requires them to do the thing they love to do and the thing they are actually great at – to sing. I mean – playing a board game and singing – what could be more fun?!

9. Throat Tea
A remedying and comforting gift for singers
What does every singer need? Well, I can tell you the one thing they definitely do not need, and that’s laryngitis. To make sure your friend’s vocals and throat stay in top shape, buy them medicinal throat tea, which will support their throat health and will keep them singing like a canary.
The perfect gift for singer-songwriters
If your friend is not only a singer but a promising songwriter as well, he or she surely needs a songwriting journal. A handy songwriting journal that can be carried around in a purse will allow your beloved musician to write the lyrics and melodies that could become a new hit as soon as they pop into their brilliant mind.
11. Singer T-shirt
A fashionable gift for singers
A singer-themed T-shirt is a great gift idea for singers! It allows them to communicate to every nearby individual that they love music and singing. It also warns people who do not share their passion to stay away, as a friendly karaoke contest may be just around the corner.
In terms of singer t-shirts, there are countless options. You can select a retro microphone tee, a lovely ‘Just a girl who loves singing’ t-shirt, or an official t-shirt of your friend’s favorite singer or band.
12. Music Wine Glass
A fun and cool gift for singers
OK, so your friend is a singer and does his/her best not to harm his/her vocal cords. Well, this pretty much rules out excessive alcohol consumption. However, he or she may still enjoy the occasional glass of wine, especially after winning the shampoo-bottle Grammy award that we have discussed earlier. Therefore, he or she may really like a fun music wine glass.
An educational gift for vocalists
A book is always a nice gift idea, especially if you go with a book about a topic the receiver is very interested in. For a singer, that’s singing! Regardless of whether you choose an entertaining fictional story, a biography of a famous singer, a songbook, or an educational book on singing that would broaden your friend’s horizons and impart knowledge, a book about singing makes for an interesting gift for singers.
14. Air Humidifier
A soothing gift for vocalists
Every singer, including your friend, knows all too well how important and fragile vocal health is, as such their main goal is to support it. And you can help them! Simply buy them a soothing air humidifier, which will help keep your pal’s vocal cords in top shape. It is a very useful present, especially during the cold winter days and for singers living in cities with a lot of air pollution.
15. Music Travel Mug
A present for singers who travel often
If your friend is a singer who tends to spend lots of time on the road driving from one gig to the next, he or she would undoubtedly appreciate a lovely yet practical music-themed travel mug. After all, staying hydrated is one of the best things one can do to support throat health and overall well-being. Plus, every pop or rock star has one!
16. Sound Wave Print
A meaningful customized gift for singers
If you are searching for a meaningful and truly unique gift for musicians, a custom sound wave print of your friend’s favorite tune or their own song could be the perfect pick! Not only does such a print hold a deep and perhaps hidden meaning, but it also looks great on the wall, which is just a bonus!
Instead of a print, you can also opt for a sound wave acrylic block. On the other hand, if sound waves don’t sound like something your friend would find as cool as my singer friend does, you can also go with singing or music-themed wall art.
17. Chocolate Record
A delicious gift for singers
So, your friend loves to sing and he or she surely also loves chocolate – I mean, who doesn’t?! And if we combine both, we get a chocolate record, for example – the best gift for singers! It is a cute, practical, thoughtful, and tasty pick that would make the perfect birthday or Christmas gift for singers!
Choose a romantic ‘Just for the record – I love you’ chocolate record or go with a pack of microphone-shaped chocolate lollipops instead.
