It's that time of year again! The best part about the holiday season is the giving. This list of great gift ideas for guitarists will help you find a perfect present for your favourite player - or even to get ideas on what to buy yourself..

There are so many awesome gift options for guitarists out there, but we have compiled a list of our favourites to make it even easier for you. This list is filled to the brim with ideas that all guitarists will appreciate - they've been uniquely selected by our team of Expert musicians who know more than a thing or two about guitar gifts.

So without further ado, here are the best gifts for guitar players this Christmas..

Guitar Straps

Straps are an important and often undervalued part of playing the guitar. They’re not only there to make it easier for you to play the instrument, but they can also have a massive impact on your performance and comfort levels as well. If you want to give someone something that will make them look cool but also help out with their playing, then look no further than our range of premium guitar straps.

Guitar Pedals

Guitar pedals can make a huge difference to your sound and give you more control over your tone. They can also be a lot of fun to play with as they offer some completely new capabilities depending on what type you buy - so whether you're giving it to someone out to record the next Number One single or just a bedroom guitar fanatic, they'll definitely appreciate it.

Big Top FX are our pick for guitarists of all levels - they're budget-friendly stocking fillers that provide studio-quality sounds!

Guitar Tuners

Guitar Tuners are a must-have for any guitarist. They’re the only way to ensure that your instrument is always in tune and ready to go whenever you need it. There is nothing more frustrating than when you’re just starting out on guitar and you can’t get it set up properly, so don’t let the budding guitarist in your life be unprepared.

Available in clip-on or pedal formats, they’re one of the most essential tools to get started with learning any instrument - and they’ll help to improve the ear of someone who is just starting to learn how to tune up properly.

Mini Amps

We know that practicing at home is important to musicians, but it can be difficult to do so without making too much noise. At PMT we stock an awesome range of Mini Amps that are suitable for practicing guitar at bedroom-friendly levels. They’re great for those who need to practice at home - but also as a cool novelty ornament that you can actually shred on.

You don’t have to worry about waking up neighbours or other people in the house anymore - with these Mini Amp, you can play your music and practice whenever and wherever you want without disturbing anyone else.

Ear Plugs

Ear plugs are the only way to protect your hearing when playing loud music at rehearsals or band practice. They’re also great for protecting your ears at concerts, festivals and other live music events.

At PMT we sell specialist ear plugs designed by and for musicians - so whilst the damage to your ear is minimized, the sound quality remains clear and focused.

If the guitarist in your life likes to play loud and regularly enjoys live shows, a set of high-quality ear plugs are a great gift idea.

Guitar Cables

Electric guitar players can never have too many guitar cables. They’re often easy to misplace and leave behind at gigs, especially when you start lending them out to other bands.

Available in a variety of lengths, we have cables perfect for at-home practicing as well as longer options for those who are planning to play on the big stages in 2022. We also have an awesome selection of patch cables that are designed for linking up pedals and other FX units.

Audio Interface

If you’re looking to start recording your guitar, then an audio interface is a great place to begin.

Audio interfaces are the perfect way for guitarists to get started with recording their instrument. They allow you to plug-in and play without having to worry about latency or other technical issues that can be difficult when starting out. You can also use them as a simple headphone amp so you can listen back while practicing at home!

We have a wide range of audio interfaces available at PMT including top brands like Focusrite, PreSonus and more - all selected by our team of Experts. Our favourites come from Trumix - the TM-12 (pictured) offers awesome sound and portability at a great value.

Whether you’re just getting started or want something more advanced we have everything covered here at PMT.

Gifts for New Guitarists

Learning an instrument can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. At PMT, we know that learning the basics of playing guitar is easier when you have everything you need in one place, and that’s why we stock a great range of Guitar Starter Packs.

Each pack includes a beginner-friendly electric or acoustic guitar, practice amp, cable and strap - all at an affordable price point. So whether you are looking for your first electric or acoustic guitar or just trying out something new - our packs are perfect for beginners!

Gift Vouchers

Still can’t decide on what to buy for a guitarist in your life?

Our PMT Gift Vouchers will allow them to pick something out for themselves - or put it towards the purchase of a new guitar, amp, or other piece of gear.

They’re available in a range of values, and they look great inside a Christmas card - check them out here:
