Splurge-worthy gift idea for trumpeters
Trumpets are obviously one of the louder musical instruments out there, so it can be difficult to find a way to practice without disturbing others (even more so if they’re a beginner!). But with a silent brass system, they can mute their trumpet while playing and the sound is rerouted back to them through headphones, meaning only they can hear the music! Give your household a little peace and grant them free reign to play all day!
Gifts for musicians with a sweet tooth
Candy may be a cliche Valentine gift, but this gift is a whole new take on chocolate. Let that trumpet player know you understand their obsession with music by giving them oreos covered with chocolate music notes for that special day.
A dozen musical note lollipops are a sweet substitute for those who aren’t chocoholics. Choose their favorite color and flavor.
Or give each band member a chocolate instrument set as a Christmas gift.
Tech gift for trumpet players
Anyone who loves music will enjoy this gift. It not only acts as a bluetooth speaker, but it is also a wireless charger and nightlight.
Inspirational gift for trumpet players
Take them on a journey into their imagination with a puzzle of a jazz cafe. Puzzles help focus the mind, making them more disciplined musicians. This vivid puzzle will have them almost hearing the music, inspiring them to become the best trumpet player they can be.
History buffs will like The Beginning of Jazz, which demonstrates the origins of some of today’s instruments. Or try a 1000 piece puzzle of a trumpet for serious puzzle lovers. While the image is simple, the puzzle is hard, as it has many pieces of similar color.
5. Phone Mount
Practical gift for trumpet players
With this useful phone mount trumpet players can easily read music from their phone while playing. This is great for marching bands. They can even use it to take video footage while playing. Now they can record those once in a lifetime memories when their band is invited to play at a big event.
Gifts for a trumpet player’s home
These whimsical musical notes can be hung by the front door for coats, in the bathroom for towels, or wherever they need to hang their gig bag.
For additional decor, give them floating musical note shelves that can be used in various rooms in the house.
Or why not liven up their kitchen with a New Orleans decorative spoon rest?
Really old school trumpet gift
Introduce them to an ancestor of their instrument with a real Viking war horn. Imagine calling your troops to order with this? While these can’t play the range of notes a modern trumpet can, a trumpet player will enjoy trying their hand at using this beautiful piece of history.
Legendary gift for trumpet players
Do they eat, sleep, and live everything jazz? Or maybe they enjoy reading in addition to playing the trumpet. Either way, a biography of the great Miles Davis will definitely pique their interest.
One-of-a-kind gift idea for music lovers
Looking for gifts that are truly out of the box? Try this amazing synesthesia perfume! Synesthesia is a rare phenomenon in which one sensory experience triggers a different kind of sensory experience. For example, you “hear colors” or, in this case, “smell sounds”. The COLORNOISE line of fragrances is a series of scents inspired by different musical instruments, including the trumpet!
Winter gear for trumpet players
Not all concerts take place indoors. Every year I watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC and watch all the participants braving the cold. Fingerless gloves will allow them the flexibility of using their fingers while keeping their hands warm.
At the same time, thermal socks will help prevent their feet from becoming numb with cold.
Under their uniform they will need to wear a thermal shirt. These will provide an extra layer keeping body heat in without being bulky.
Fun gift for trumpet players
You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy Legos. This cool building set will be fun for any jazz musician.
Jazzy gift for trumpet players
If they own their own trumpet, they may want to add some personal style. Decorative valve buttons add a touch of color and pizazz to their instrument.
They may also benefit from a trumpet repair kit which has all the extra pieces and tools needed for replacing damaged parts.
To keep their trumpet in tip top shape a cleaning kit will help remove dirt and prevent damage from saliva. Trumpets are expensive so proper maintenance is important.
Unusual handmade gift for trumpeters
Fun and quirky gifts are always great, but the practical, useful gifts are the ones that will be used every day. The right valve guard will not only protect the most delicate portion of the trumpet – it also gives the instrument a little style, too! These handmade leather items can also be monogrammed, which is super helpful if your trumpeter is in a large orchestra or marching band!
Help your trumpeter protect their instrument further with a fun patterned bell cover to keep dust at bay. And while you’re considering instrument upgrades, check out a “wah-wah” trumpet mute – it’s a must-have for any jazz enthusiast!
Helpful practice tool to help trumpeters up their skills
It’s not as easy as it looks to play the trumpet, and any beginner will tell you that your hands get fatigued easily. Every musician needs to build up the strength to comfortably and confidently play their trumpet to the best of their ability. Help them get there faster with a hand exercise tool to increase their finger strength and dexterity, and they’ll notice a huge improvement in their playing in no time!
If you’re looking for other gifts that will help them better their playing, get them an embouchure trainer to help them perfect their lip positioning or a respiratory trainer to help them develop stronger breath support!

16. Pocket Trumpet
Perfect gift for kids or beginners
This gift is definitely a splurge item, but well worth it for any trumpeter who’s just starting out, or maybe isn’t big enough yet for a standard size. While it may look like a toy, it functions the same as a regular trumpet, with a slightly different tone and sound, so they’ll still get the experience of the “real thing”. Also, since they’re mainly used as practice instruments or for children/beginners, they come in a wide array of fun colors, too!
Stylish housewarming gift for trumpet lovers

Practical gift idea for marching band musicians
The best gifts for musicians are the ones that will make them better at their craft. Metronomes are devices that help musicians maintain their rhythm by ticking out a beat at a predetermined tempo – and they’re an absolute essential for anyone in a marching band! They come in both traditional mechanical styles as well as more high-tech digital designs to suit any style of practice!
If you’re looking for an even more convenient option for marching band musicians, what about a wearable metronome?
You might want to take a look at gifts for other musicians too!
Beautiful upgrade gift for trumpet players
Help your trumpeter step up their game with a gold-plated mouthpiece. It will not only look great and last them a long time, but it will also help take their playing to a whole new level! When it comes to cup sizes, it’s a safe bet to choose a 7c for beginners or more general use, but more advanced players will go with a 5c or 3c.
Want to let your trumpet player have a bit of fun? Get them this hilarious clip-on mustache for their mouthpiece and they’ll be a hit at their next practice session! And while you’re at it, throw in some Chop Saver protective lip balm to minimize discomfort with their new mouthpiece.
Fun gift idea for beginning trumpet players
Every musician knows that there’s nothing more fun than playing your favorite songs (or at least trying to). Getting them a songbook featuring music from their favorite movies or recording artist will give them the inspiration it takes to practice for hours on end! It’s a great gift idea for trumpet players of all ages, but especially kids or beginners, since it’s easier to read music they’re familiar with!
Sweet and sentimental gift for the trumpet player in your life
It’s great to give a practical gift, but sometimes you want to convey your love in a different way. When you want to be a bit more sentimental, jewelry is the perfect standby for just about any occasion. Celebrate a milestone in their life, like a graduation or important performance, with a piece of jewelry that they’re sure to treasure for years to come!
Perfect gift for music lovers
It’s no shocker that if someone plays a musical instrument, they probably also love listening to music in their downtime. If they have a favorite trumpeter (or even if they don’t), an album full of jazz, orchestra, or big band classics can inspire them the next time they pick up their own instrument.
Cds are great, but there’s nothing like the tangible feel of a vinyl record. If they don’t already have a vinyl collection and setup, get them started with a good record player and speaker system. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy to put a huge smile on their face!
Fun and stylish gift for people who play the trumpet
Looking for a fun and easy way to support their hobby with a can’t-miss kind of gift? Get them a trumpet-themed T-shirt! This is a great gift for someone with a big personality who loves to show off their love for their instrument. Shirts are also a fantastic gift idea for band directors and music teachers as well!
