Holiday 2010 Gift Guide: your music-obsessed boyfriend (or husband)

He still actually subscribes to Spin (but reads Pitchfork obsessively too), he reluctantly downloads digital music, and, to him, the height of fashion was Seattle circa 1992. Here's what to get him.

gifts for your boyfriend

Clockwise from top left (click on links to go to products):


In case he ever wants to digitize his record collection (an idea that may or may not be blasphemy), this Crosley USB tech turntable, $129, is a pretty cool gadget to help him do so.

Mosley Tribes Hillyard Sunglasses, $165, are shades fit for a rock star—an under-the-radar, Brooklyn-dwelling one, that is.

Document debauchery the old-fashioned way: with an Instant Camera by Fujifilm, $96

Because, really, what's more rock-and-roll than making your own soda with a SodaStream Penguin Water Carbonator, $200?

Chances are he's already heard a lot of these, but if not...1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, $35

Ok, so, there's nothing music-related about this Inhabit Superyak Mock Henley Sweater, $268. It's just soft and warm and makes a nice present.

This limited-edition Max Dalton Ten Great Years Print, $59.99, details The Beatles' looks throughout their prime, and is a lot cooler than that framed Led Zepplin poster that's hanging in his office.

Lace-up boots like these J.Crew Chukka Boots, $275 (and out of stock--sorry!), are favored by indie rock stars of the British variety.

Jack Daniel's? That went the way of hair metal. Now it's all about small-batch bourbon, such as Basil Hayden's 8 Year Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, $43.99
