17 Useful Gifts for Guitar Players
If you have a guitar player on your shopping list here are 17 gifts for guitar players that are useful…because it is a yucky feeling when you buy a gift and it’s never used.
1) Fender Polishing Cloth
This microfiber cloth from the guitar company Fender will allow them to polish up their guitar and have it looking new again.

3) Wall-mounted Guitar Hangers
Great way to get their guitars off the floor or out of the guitar case.
- I know first-hand that having easy access to your guitars will make you play more
4) Wooden Wall Guitar Hanger with Shelf and Hooks
I really like the look of this guitar hanger. The wood gives it a great look, and the shelf and hooks provide a good place to keep picks, straps and tuners.
5) Floor Stand for Guitar
If your guitar player does have floor space, this guitar stand from AmazonBasics will help keep their guitar within easy reach.
6) Clip-on Guitar Tuner
I usually use an app on my phone to tune my guitar, but a clip-on tuner like this would be good if your guitar performs on stage and needs to tune quickly.
- This tuner clips on to the headstock of the guitar
- uses vibrations to help you tune your guitar
7) Ditch the Cables with these Wireless Transmitters
A simple picture doesn’t do these justice. These little plug in transmitters allow you to ditch the amp cables and go wireless. So you can walk around, run, jump, or whatever else you want while still playing your electric guitar.
allows the freedom of movement and walking around while playing
8) Guitar Pick 30-pack
This 30-pack of guitar picks features different sizes and thicknesses. (Some thicknesses are better for picking versus strumming for instance.)
- could be a very useful stocking stuffer for the guitar player on your list
- you can see more details on this big pack on Amazon
9) Guitar Capo
I’ve never owned a capo. But that also means I haven’t been able to play a lot of songs as they are meant to be played (and were recorded).
- inexpensive guitar accessory that can make a very good stocking stuffer
10) Ernie Ball Electric Guitar Strings (3-pack)
Get your guitar lover a 3-pack of electric guitar strings by the renowned “Ernie Ball” company.
11) Headphone Amplifier
This little gadget plugs into an electric guitar and then the player inserts some headphones into the gadget, and it’ll sound like a real amplifier – but only through the headphones (3.5mm jack).
- allows your guitar player to play quietly to others, but have big sound for themselves
Below is YouTube video where the guitar player Rob Galley gives a review of the Vox AC30 headphone amp.
12) Led Zeppelin Mothership Guitar Tab Book
Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin is an amazing guitar player. He recorded such a huge variety of classic songs. If the guitar player in your life likes Led Zeppelin, they’d appreciate a big guitar tab book like this.
