Do you have a music lover on your Holiday shopping list? Then you’ve come to the right post. Holiday shopping can be stressful, but music related gifts are always a knock out. Check out a few ideas below for your music lover:


We’re Going To Be Friends Children’s Book

The White Stripes have turned their beloved song “We’re Going to be Friends” into a children’s book with the help of illustrator Elinor Blake. The book tells the story of Suzy Lee as she goes to school with her books and pens, looks for bugs, shows and tells, and finds a friend.
