15 Groovy Gifts for Jimi Hendrix Fans
1) Jimi Hendrix Experience – Live in Maui
This is a new album (released November 2020) of the the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s concert in Maui from July 1970.
It has Mitch Mitchell back on drums and Billy Cox on bass (Noel Redding had quit already).
I don’t have this one yet, but it’ll be on the wish list of the Hendrix fan in your life.
2) The 3 “Jimi Hendrix Experience” Studio Albums
I love the three studio albums that Jimi released as “the Jimi Hendrix Experience” with Noel Redding on bass and Mitch Mitchell on drums.
Jimi’s guitar playing is amazing, but just have a listen to Mitch’s drumming…man, that guy is busy (jazz influenced)!
Yes I love his bombastic live performances, but his elegance in the studio recordings is incredible and refined.
“Are you Experienced” on Vinyl
The first album released by the Jimi Hendrix Experience. This US version has Hendrix hits such as “Purple Haze”, “Foxey Lady”, and “Wind Cries Mary.” Plus I love the bluesy track “Red House.”
Check it out at your local record store, or you can check it out on Amazon by clicking here.
“Axis: Bold as Love” on Vinyl
This second album from the Jimi Hendrix Experience features the amazing “Little Wing“, and “Bold as Love” plus the very catchy “Little Miss Lover” and “If 6 was 9.” (If 6 turned out to be 9, I don’t mind.)
See if your local record store has it, or you can check it out on Amazon.
“Electric Ladyland” on Vinyl
This third album from “the Jimi Hendrix Experience” is a double LP and has my favorite Hendrix song – his cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower.” But it also has him pumping the Wah-wah pedal on such songs as “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” and “Burning of the Midnight Lamp.”
It is a worthy gift for the Jimi Hendrix fan in your life.
3) Fantastic Purple Haze T-shirt
Isn’t this a cool shirt! A pop art shirt of the famous ” ‘scuse me while I kiss the sky” line from “Purple Haze.”
- after seeing this shirt I’ve just put this on my Christmas wish list!
4) Hendrix US Flag T-shirt
A Hendrix t shirt showing him playing his Strat with the US flag in background.
5) Are you Experienced T-Shirt
A great t-shirt featuring the US album cover of the “Are you Experienced” album cover.
6) Hendrix Stickers (20 pack)
Getting the Hendrix fan in your life these stickers will allow them to decorate their stuff with cool Jimi decor.
7) Hendrix Guitar Strap (by Dunlop)

Jimi was incredibly influential and lots of people picked up the guitar because of him.
- this is an officially licensed Hendrix guitar strap made by Dunlop
8) Guitar Picks & Tin
Very cool Jimi guitar picks made by Dunlop.
9) Tab Books for Guitar Players
You can get guitar tablature books based on each of Jimi’s studio albums for the guitar-playing Hendrix fan in your life can learn to play Jimi’s songs.
- They may not learn to play as well as him, but they’ll have fun trying.
- this is for “Axis: Bold as Love” album, but you can get other books too
10) “Room Full of Mirrors” Hendrix Biography
Here is a Hendrix biography that the Hendrix fan in your life may appreciate.
11) Hendrix Socks
Socks are a classic stocking stuffer. You can give your Hendrix fan a cool pair of socks…I doubt they’d be expecting that!

14) Hendrix “Fun Box” — 3-inches!
This is NOT a lunch box. Though it looks like one, it is only about 3-inches high.
- what could they keep in there? Well, I’ll let you use your imagination as to what a Hendrix fan would keep in there
15) Hendrix Wall Tapestry (playing Gibson SG)
Here is a funky wall tapestry showing Jimi playing a white Gibson SG. I always thought of him as a Fender Stratocaster guy…I wanted to see if perhaps this was a pic of someone else, but I found some YouTube videos where he is indeed playing this guitar.
Video of Jimi playing a white Gibson SG guitar on a live rendition of “Red House.”
I really hope you found an inspiring gift idea for the Jimi Hendrix fan in your life.
