Remember the drummer on your gift-giving list with something that addresses his love of the percussion instrument and lets him know that you support his musical ventures. Whether you give a one-of-a-kind item designed just for him or something that any drummer would love, either choice is personalised because it speaks to the drummer in him.
Have a few meaningful words engraved on a pair of drumsticks and have the drumsticks mounted for a wall display. For a significant other, you can personalise the sticks with words of love; if the gift is for a friend or family member, have a few lines of her favourite song engraved onto the drumsticks. Bring the drumsticks to your local trophy and plaque shop to have the engraving and mounting done.
Books on famous drummers through the years, the history of drumming or drums from around the world will make interesting reading for a drummer. If he fashions himself after a certain drummer or has a favourite band, consider a book written about that person or group.
A subscription to a music magazine that specialises in the type of music she likes to play is a gift that will last an entire year. There are magazines on drumming in general as well as genre-specific magazines on styles including rock, jazz and classical.
Posters and Pictures
A poster of a drummer or favourite band or an autographed picture of his favourite drummer can decorate your loved one's room or practice area.
Give your drummer a different type of drum to add to her collection. If she plays a full drum kit, like those found in rock bands, then get her a bongo for something different to play. A tribal drum or a drum from another country would be an interesting addition to any drummer's collection of instruments.
Give a necklace with a drum-shaped pendant or a ring or earrings with a drum motif. If there is room for engraving on the back, you can have a few words added to make the gift more meaningful.
There are plenty of novelty items either shaped like drums or decorated with drum motifs, such as drum alarm clocks, wall clocks, figurines, mugs and key chains. Look in gift shops, music stores and speciality shops.
