6 inexpensive items to gift your friends.

Concert Tickets are thoughtful gifts… Imagine you received a gift from a friend… you unwrapped it and found a ticket to go see your favourite artiste perform… I am sure you’ll feel good… even if you had seen that artiste perform once or more times… It’s still a gift you will love… because you know every performance is unique. Gifts like this creates special memories and bond between friends.
3. Guitar Pick
My cousin, Nath, learnt to play the guitar after I sent him a Guitar Pick packed in a Nike shoe box…. The shoe box was a prank to get him excited… it’s an inside joke. Years before Nath learnt to play the Guitar, he had been procrastinating year in, year out… I tried to get him to start early, but words couldn’t do the trick… One day, I was having that conversation with a friend… He suggested that I gave Nath a Guitar pick… I took his advice. I did send Nath a Guitar Pick a month later… and WOW!… it did the trick. Last month Nath performed to an audience of over a 100 people… Nath now lives off making music.
“A gift doesn’t have to be expensive if it’s valuable”.
4. Cable Organizer
A Cable Organiser is a necessarry item for musicians. It helps protect and organise cables neatly. Cluttered cables are health and physical harzards because they easily collects dust. Also Loose cables lying around can cause tripping accidents. Implementing a Cable Organiser as part of your cable management system will drastically reduce the chances of studio accidents occuring and help preserve cables for longer by preventing damages caused by trampling. Tackling excess cord lenght might seem like a tedious chore. But a cluttered – disorganised workspace is dangerous and will give potential business contacts who visit, the wrong ideas. Get a Cable Organiser… they are inexpensive and super useful.
5. Audio Jack Splitter
Although earphones, a type of headphone design, can be shared with a friend (with one “phone” in another’s ear), an Audio Jack Splitter is a better way to both listen in on great music simultaneously. An Audio Jack Splitter allows you connect two headphones to a jack on your device such as a Mobile Phone, portable CD player, Sound card, or any mini-stereo audio device with 3.5mm jacks. An Audio Jack Splitter is a practical gift that will be handy plenty of times.
An Earplug is a device that is inserted in the ear canal to protect your ears from loud noises, intrusion of Liquids, foreign bodies, dust or excessive wind etc. Since earplugs reduce sound, they are often used to help prevent hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing of the ears). Some Earplug designs come with audio playing capabilities… which is great!… because Earplugs are designed to inhibit or completely block out external sound, allowing you hear only the important frequencies.
