" You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, well, you might find you get what you need. "
― The Rolling Stones

It’s the dreamers who dare to aspire big end up changing the world. Where would we be without the irrationally optimistic people who, despite the scary pile of odds stacked against them, dare to be unconventional, to start a company, make a film, write a bestseller or start a band. It was a 20 year old guitarist in London who dreamed of starting his own rock and roll band that lead to the creation of one of the most influential and popular bands in the history of music, The Rolling Stones.

Brian Jones persuaded Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to join him in his journey and the rest is history. They were the opposite of the family friendly Beatles. Being hated by the older generation, they became more popular among the young. Even today, there are millions of fans all over the world who love them.

It’s better to pick a gift based on a recipient’s general interests rather than going for a very specific preference. Even if you think you understand your their needs well enough, you’re likely not match up with their exact wants.

A true fan would love nothing more than to own a collection of The Rolling Stones Albums. This limited edition collection has all the albums from 1971 - 2016.

Music is mostly digitized now and no one buys disks or vinyls, but that only adds to the value of this gift. No amount of binary can replace the feel of a vinyl disk or the way it looks on the shelf. There is something fulfilling about it.

The most effective gifts are those that relate to a recipient’s multiple interests. If your recipient enjoys board games and is a fan of The Rolling Stones, they’ll be thrilled to get this Rolling Stones Monopoly game as a gift.

The Rolling Stones Singles Collection

An essential for any self respecting Rolling Stones fan. A collection of all the songs from the London years. From Come On to Sympathy For The Devil, this one has them all.

Yeah, sure, they can download these songs online, but, like I said before, digital can’t compare with having a physical disk that reminds you of the music before you put it in. A simple but effective gift.


17.

Rebels With A Cause

Most of us know the Rolling Stones as the mega popular rock band that dominated the show bizz a few decades ago, but before all the fame, they had a very different identity.

The Rolling Stones - Rock & Roll Circus

This Rock and Roll Circus documentary was filmed before a live audience in London in 1968 and was a BBC-TV special. The Rolling Stones performed six of their classic songs and the audience had the time of their lives. Makes you wish you were there.

The set contains a Blue-Ray and a DVD of the film along with the 2CD expanded soundtrack as a bonus. Trust me, a fan would be thrilled to get this as a gift.


19.

Rolling Stones Tour of Europe T-shirt

I’ll be honest; t-shirts don’t always make good gifts. You have to consider your recipient’s taste, size and it’s difficult to know if they’ll want to wear it.

But you can’t go wrong with this if it’s a band t-shirt. As long as the design is not too bad and you get the size right, you’re good to go.


20.

Let it Bleed - 50th Anniversary Edition

Let it Bleed was one of the biggest hits of The Rolling Stones. It is a favourite of many around the world. I love that song. I can’t believe it’s been 50 years since it was released.

Anyway, this 50th anniversary edition is a pleasant reminder of the everlasting popularity of the band. If you know your recipient likes this song, give them this.


21.

Mick Jagger Mugshot Poster

I found this seller on Etsy who sells these celebrity mugshot posters. He has posters of Frank Sinatra, Tupac and even Johnny Cash.

I’m not sure where the idea came from, but I love how this guy made it into a business.

Anyway, this Mick Jagger mugshot poster is just so cool, any fan would want it. It’ll make a fun gift.


22.

Can't Give It Away on Seventh Avenue

This book is not just about the band. It has two subjects–The Rolling Stones and New York. Specifically how after coming to America, the band went on to win the hearts of the people.

It’s a story of the relationship between the world’s most famous rock band and America’s most famous city.

The Rolling Stones In Mono Box Set

Back then in the 60’s most of the band’s songs were recorded in mono. And this collection contains 186 tracks, and 56 of them were never heard before in mono before this. Which kind of makes this a historic release.

It’s a different experience, and, if they know their music, your recipient will be able to tell the difference. If not, you can always tell them the thought behind this gift. They’ll like it.


24.

Up And Down With Rolling Stones

This book was originally titled “I was Keith Richards’ Drug Dealer.” The author worked for Richards for over eight years and tells a fascinating story about the life with the Rolling Stones.

Everything from racing cars along the Cote d’Azur to frantic flights to Switzerland for blood changes. This book is no short of a thriller mystery. Only it’s all true. It’s a great read.


25.

Talk is Cheap - Keith Richards

Not exactly a Rolling Stones creation, but if your recipient loves them then chances are they’ll not mind anything by Keith Richards.

From Make No Mistake to Blue Jam this set has Richards’ best solo albums. It will make a simple enough but fine gift for any fan.
