The biggest asset of a music producer are his or her ears. That’s why gifting a professional hearing protection is probably the most reasonable gift you can make. I carry a pair wherever I go and I bet my hearing would be much worse off, was it not for this handy tube at my keychain.

Nowadays, a music producer can carry his studio in his backpack. Skrillex often produces his hit-tracks on airplanes and in hotel rooms. For high goals like this a laptop is not always enough. Therefore, I recommend gifting a music producer portable MIDI controller to give him or her more flexibility on the road.

- 25 velocity-sensitive mini-keyboard keys are highly portable; writing sessions, capturing ideas and studio use with nearly all music creation software

Microphone stands are usually super bulky. It’s often hard to just briefly grab a stand and record a sudden inspiration. As producers we need a quick workflow to get our ideas out there! A missing piece in the puzzle is therefore a super quick and handy mic access. The following solutions work wonders.
- The adjustable black scissor arm stand is made of high quality steel frame, plastic mic clip and wind pop filter mask shield (included)

Adapters, adapters, adapters! When I was studying music production adapters were always 1. scarce because they get lost so quickly due to size and 2. high in demand. That caused a lot of hassle and lending. Thus having more than necessary can never hurt.
