2020 has been a crazy year for the musician in your life. Between lost gigs and our new virtual church set up there has been a lot of change. Whether you are a worship leader looking for great last minute gifts for your team or you know a church musician, check out this list to bring some bright gear to the end of their year.
Great Last Minute Gifts
1. The Most Popular Affordable In-Ear Monitors
Most musicians are using in-ear monitors. I can’t count the number of times I have left mine at home and it’s always a great idea to have another extra pair. These IN-EAR MONITORS are really affordable and have incredible reviews! Tip: I suggest buying the clear ones since they are the most in-demand and least obstructive on the stage. Here is another very highly rated in-ear monitor.
2. Perfect Stand for All That Extra Gear
Laptops, cameras, and random devices are everywhere in modern music-making. One of these Universal Laptop Projector Tripod Stands will serve just about every musician and there’s a good chance they don’t even know they need one.

3. Subscription to Monthly Magazine
Every month for a year your musician friend will say “thank you” again and again when they receive one of these high-end periodicals. Magazines like this are great for training and even leaving around the church green room.
4. Extra Music Stand Light
Every music maker at some point in their life needs a MUSIC STAND LIGHT. Dark stages can make reading music a drag and it’s nice to have one of these in your case. Bonus if you buy this before our Christmas Eve Candlelight service!
5. Clip-On Tuner

I know not a single guitarist or bass player that could not benefit from an extra floor tuner. These tuners have gotten great reviews. KLIQ TinyTune Tuner Pedal for Guitar and Bass – Mini.
7. Low Profile Folding Guitar Stand
Most guitar players could use an EXTRA GUITAR STAND that breaks down but still can hold the instrument safely. This particular stand is a personal favorite. It’s so common to show up to a church or a gig and realize you don’t have a stand for your guitar, this low-profile stand will be the perfect practical gift. This adjustable stand fits acoustic guitars, electric guitars, basses, and ukuleles.
