Best Valentine's Day Gifts for Music Lovers

Best Valentine's Day Gifts for Music Lovers

February 03, 2020 | Events

Ready or not, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. If you’re struggling to figure out what to get your special someone this February 14th, why not give the gift of sound? Here’s why music is the perfect way to show someone you love them (plus some specific gift ideas they’re sure to enjoy).

The Power of Music

When you’re in love, you feel like every love song was written just for you. The right song can take you to heaven, strengthening your bond with your significant other. Music encourages you to express yourself and open your heart to others. In fact, some studies have shown music releases chemicals that cause you to bond with others. Let’s get into some gift ideas.

Valentine’s Day Cards with Records Inside

Over the past couple of years, some greeting card makers have begun a new trend: 7″ vinyl records inside Valentine’s Day cards. In previous years, artists have included Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Bruno Mars, and Michael Bublé. These unique greeting cards are also available for other occasions, such as birthdays and Father’s Day.

Romantic Records

Perhaps you’re looking for something a little more substantial than a 7″ record from a greeting card. If so, consider getting one of the following records to help set the mood:

  • At Last, Etta James
  • Come Away With Me, Norah Jones
  • Let’s Get It On, Marvin Gaye
  • xx, The xx
  • Kinds of Blue, Miles Davis
  • Avalon, Roxy Music
  • Love Deluxe, Sade

There’s nothing quite like a vinyl record to add to your Valentine’s Day ambiance. Whether you give a record as a gift or merely to use the rich, warm sound as the backdrop to your evening, a little romantic music is sure to help make your night a success.

Record-Related Gift Ideas

Records are a great gift on their own, but perhaps you want to give something a little different. Accessories are a wonderful way to help your loved one spice up their record collection. Let’s take a look at a few examples.

Monthly Vinyl Record club Subscription

If you're looking for a Valentine's Day gift that keeps on giving, you may want to look into buying your bae a membership to a record-of-the-month club.  There's plenty to choose from, but we love the dudes over at Vinylmnky and there's a reason they are loved by so many millennials who are trying to discover new artists and music. 

Replacement Jackets

If your record has been with you for decades, you might need a replacement jacket to help keep your prized possession in pristine condition. You can attempt to find an exact replica, a standard jacket with a hole in the middle (so you can identify your record), or a solid jacket you can write on to label your collection.

Display Shelf

Does your loved one have two or three prized records he or she values more than life itself? If so, consider getting them a record display shelf, allowing them to show off their favorite vinyl.

Record Dividers

If your collection of records spans multiple bookshelves, you might enjoy some simple record dividers. By helping to make order out of chaos, you’ll be able to find the record you’re looking for with ease.

Your special someone has an emotional connection to their records. Help them take care of their collection. Crosley has a wide selection of tools to help keep records just like new.

Speakers and Headphones

Speakers and headphones are an essential part of every music lover’s arsenal, even if they’re not listening to records. High-quality audio playback equipment is vital to an enjoyable listening experience. Whether you’re thinking about gifting studio headphones or a high-powered sound system, your loved one is sure to be delighted.

Record Players

Ah, the holy grail. There’s nothing quite like a record player, blending beauty and function. A turntable is the perfect gift for your Valentine — and it doesn’t have to break the bank, either! While high-end turntables can go for hundreds or thousands of dollars, you can still find great introductory-level turntables for as low as $69.95.
