Sometimes the best gifts are homemade, because it takes thought and effort to make something yourself. If the gift recipient is a rock 'n' roll fan, you definitely have a specific theme to work with, and a little creativity can go a long way. When it comes to music, the ideas are plentiful.

Rock 'n' rollers are often seen wearing jewellery, so one idea is to make a necklace that would be suited for a music lover. You can use a black leather piece of cord and beads to create a choker type necklace. Another idea is to get a small piece of wood about the size of a stone, sand it, paint it and drill a small hole in it. It can be used as a pendant for the black leather cord.

Tie-Dye T-shirt

Tie-dye clothes seem to be a traditional piece of rock 'n' roll clothing. It's often seen on fans at rock concerts, not to mention band members. Create a tie-dye T-shirt as a gift. You can do this with a few different types of fabric dye, a cheap T-shirt and some rubber bands. By following the directions on the box, you will be able to make your own tie-dye gift. If you can sew, consider sewing a rock 'n' roll patch on the T-shirt for a little extra cool.

Guitar Pick Earrings

It doesn't get much more rock 'n' roll than to have guitar picks as earrings. There are many different styles of guitar picks, and by using a small drill bit, you can attach hooks to make the earrings. For extra decoration, add some coloured beads to the hooks. Consider guitar picks with a skull and crossbones to make it a little more rock 'n' roll. The recipient will be happy to have your gift hanging from her ears.


Collages are great homemade gifts because you can make them any way you want and they are a one-of-a-kind gift. Using magazines, especially music magazines and newspapers, cut out rock 'n' roll images and glue them to a decorative piece of poster board. You can cut out lyrics to a song, pictures of his favourite band or artist, concert photos and anything else that promotes rock 'n' roll. It will be a cool, homemade gift for him to hang on his wall.
