DJ TIna T. > The DJ Gift Guide!
If your doing some Christmas shopping and are stuck on what to get that DJ in your life, I got you covered. Without getting into the technicalities of various equipment, here is a general list of what I think every DJ would love to have…
1. Record Frames
– Most DJs have a few sentimental records sitting in a pile collecting dust. They should be on display! I have a big collection with these record frames in my studio and love covering the walls with autographed album covers that mean a lot to me. Buy at an Urban Outfitters store or here: BUY
2. Wireless Bluetooth Speakers
There are tons of options on the market. Beats By Dre has the “Pill” thats almost $200. Sol Republic has the “Deck” for $129. If you are looking for something a little cheaper that still gets the job done. CLICK HERE.
3. DJ Jewelry
This collection is worth checking out. Tons of cool necklaces and rings with headphones, turntables and speakers! BUY
4. Custom Serato Pressings/Control Vinyl (For DJ’s who use Turntables)
– If you dont know what this is, don’t worry. Its basically a pimped out record they will DJ with. There are multiple colors and designs. Stick with the colors you know they would like. Best if bought in a pair: BUY
5. Custom Logo Stickers
Every DJ loves stickers and having a few with your logo or web site to give out would be a great stocking stuffer! BUY
6. Scratch (Documentary)
This is in my opinion something every DJ should have a copy of. Its a great documentary about the beginning of DJing. Order a copy here: BUY
7. DJ Classes & Continued Learning:
– Scratch DJ Academy has schools in Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, LA and New York: http://www.scratch.com/
– Camp Spin Off is for teens ages 13-17. They can spend a week at sleep away camp in California learning how to DJ and produce music along with tons of other summer camp activities! http://www.campspinoff.com
8. Music Subscriptions:
This is especially helpful for DJ’s who are still building their music collection. Its a monthly subscription to access and download music from these sites. I personally use the first one for all my music needs…
9. Gift Cards:
If all else fails and you want them to just pick out there own gift, here are a few stores that would carry most of what any DJ needs, regardless of genre, experience ect.:
I will be updating this list as we get closer to Christmas. I’m open to suggestions from other DJs of things to add. Please leave a comment…
Thanks for reading!
