Giving the latest pair of headphones from Beats or Frends is a pretty fail-safe gift for your friend or relative who LOVES music and listens to it 24/7. But if you’re looking for a gift that will really “wow” them, the way to go is one of these Cruiser turntables from Crosley Radio with a handful of carefully selected records, which can be easily found at second-hand stores (Goodwill, Salvation Army), online (Amazon) or at actual record stores (millennials–please see the internet).
The Cruiser is colorful, so it’s as much a gift for the home/decor gift as it is a music lover’s dream. It has a retro vibe that resonates with people who love records (young or old) and it’s also compatible with an iPhone or iPod, so you can DJ from your iTunes library or Spotify playlists, too. Plus, the under $100 price tag means it’s a thoughtful gift you can actually afford.
