“If God wanted the woods to be quiet, He would not have given birds songs to sing.”
― Matshona Dhliwayo

Almost everyone enjoys listening to good music, but not many people are talented enough to sing a song and make it sound good. Just ask the drunks at the karaoke bars trying to pour their heart out and the people listening to them.

A good singer is like a puppet master of human emotions. They can pull at your heartstrings with the right inflection in their voice. They can evoke memories of happiness and sadness, sometimes at the same time. They can remind you of a long forgotten memory you didn’t even knew existed.

They say music is good for the soul and unless you’re someone who only listens to instrumental, you know how essential vocalists are in making great music. Such artists are rare and must be appreciated. This is a list of some cool gift ideas for singers in your life. Pick one that suits your recipient.

Marshall Action II Speaker

Your average bluetooth speaker does a fine enough job at playing your favorite music and make it sound good, but it doesn’t compare to a sound quality you’ll get out of a Marshall speaker. The brand has been around for a while and specializes in making speakers, amplifiers and music accessories that professional musicians prefer.

If your recipient is a singer, they’ll appreciate the experience of listening to their most loved songs on the Marshall Action II. It’s one of the best speakers on a budget. A perfect gift for any music lover.

Musician's Coffee Mug

Coffee mugs don’t make the most desirable gifts. Chances are that your recipient owns a dozen of them already that they got as presents. Overall it’s not the best idea for a gift. That doesn’t mean you should never consider them.

Like everything else in the world, they have a time and a place. Your recipient might not be thrilled by a “Best Singer Ever” mug but a great looking mug that’s relevant to their interests will be appreciated. Such as this beautiful looking musician themed mug.
