With musicians in my family and a few drummers to boot, I can relate to the personality and love of life they have. The rock hard sounds or soft tap of the drum sticks on the drum send a thrill through their body and make life just right. A drummer is a special kind of person and hears music in every sound our world creates, from the movement of cars to the beat of a drill; they hear music and tunes. Gift your drummer with an amazing gift on a birthday or Christmas. I hope you find a few ideas below.

How We Selected Gifts For A Drummer
first consideration or criteria
When considering any gift for a loved one we need to look at their life and passions. Many times the gifts we choose actually reflect what we like and the receiver of the gift is disappointed on the inside. They may say they like the gift but they see it as another fail. Stop finding gifts you like. If you do not know them well enough to buy them a gift then either do some research or get them an Amazon gift card so they can buy something they truly want or need.
As I compiled this list I kept trying to think out of the box. there is a stereotype I think of when I think of a drummer in the band. I have a couple of family members that play in small bands and my mind goes to them and the persona they put out there for the world. It is always this badass personality that screams I am bulletproof when in fact they get hurt easily. As I was looking for items I found ones that speak to that false persona or the face presented to the world, but I also looked for that soft person inside that can create such beautiful music. I think we need to take the outer shells off and look inside our loved ones and friends. Find the real person. The one that hides behind the superman cape.
second consideration or criteria
Cost and value always factor into gift-giving. Sometimes the least expensive gift is the right gift but because of cost, we bypass it when we should buy it. So always think about what they would like to have and forget about the cost if it is inexpensive. Listen to your friend’s words, what are they talking about. So many times they have told us a million times what they want but we forget to hear their words.
I found expensive and inexpensive gifts in this collection of items for drummers and musicians I think can find a few I love this. As I said before it is not about the price for most people. We want a gift that says you know me and you pay attention. Our lives get so busy we forget to see and hear the subtle things, those which matter most. When they say, “Stop and smell the roses,” I think they mean pay attention to those in your life. They matter and who they are can be hidden behind the wall that keeps them from being vulnerable.
FAQs About Gifts for A Drummer
What is a good gift for a drummer?
The easy answer is something they want or need. We just do not always think we know what that is because we are not listening. Gift them something that feeds their passion for the drums. Things that can surround them and bring out the passion in their soul. Music and the ability that goes with it can be so deep inside and we forget to “see” the real person. The outside of a musician can be false as they not only sell their ability but their looks and how others perceive them. Most drummers come off as bad boys or bad sexy girls that will do anything. Not many are truly that way. Today’s society sells false perceptions. Money comes to those who cater to the masses. People do not want boring. They want to smash it up, loud and rowdy on the stage.
What should I get my drummer boyfriend?
There are some great necklaces in this list that your drummer boyfriend will love and so will you. Have fun and give him something that makes him feel good about what he does. Show your support for his busy nightlife and all the time he spends with the band practicing for success. Chill, enjoy the music and gift him an amazing piece of jewelry.
If your guy is on the road often or gone then think about something for the home that is relaxing. Maybe a grill or the awesome outdoor couch to chill out on and spend time together talking and just being. A busy schedule and crazy nightlife can leave your drummer just wanting peace and quiet at home with his loved ones. Provide him with what he needs to thrive, not just survive.
What every drummer should have?
The best drum sticks in the world and many others for his or her amazing collection. A drummer cannot have too many drum sticks. They come in every shape, color, and design and I bet they want them all. There are some cool bags for drum accessories. Every drummer should have a loving home at the end of his journey, somewhere he can be himself or herself and the performance can end. Provide that and you are amazing.
What do you get a drummer for Christmas?
So many options. Anything to do with drums or music. The best bet is always an Amazon gift card so they can pick out exactly what they want but if that doesn’t work
