This is great for a music lover who is still using the standard apple headphones (or equivalent!). Getting them a really good quality pair of headphones is an excellent gift. Worth bearing in mind that some people prefer the ones you wear over the head, and others prefer the in-ear ones. Find out which they might prefer before you invest! Dr Dre, Bose or Sennheiser are always good brands.
This is bascially two gifts in one and perfect for a special occasion. Sometimes it can be difficult to get tickets to bands here in the UK, however, last year I got my boyfriend tickets to see Muse in Rome!! It was fantastic – we took a long weekend in Rome and he got to see his favourite band.
Did this for my wife for our wedding – you tell the company the story of how you got together and they write a song for you! I used a lot of humour, but you could put something very sentimental together as well.
You can either use one of their existing tracks which they personalise and that’s abou £50, or they will write a completely new one which costs about £140. Was a really nice personalised gift and ususual
I bought my husband saxophone lessons for his birthday after he said that it had always been something he wanted to do – he was really pleased with it, it is a really special present idea. He had already bought the instrument at a boot-fair so I didn’t need to pay for that as well. In London, lessons cost around £30 for an hour with a local teacher.
