Musicians’ gear

Rock on. Amazon


Amazon’s 12 Days of Deals is coming to an end and it seems they have saved the best category—at least in my opinion—for last. Music gear! Music gear! Music gear! Whether you have dreams of being a jangly guitar rocker, need to practice your drumming chops, or want to record your song ideas, take a look at all of their deals here. Most of the items—besides the microphones and portable records—are great for beginners.

Stanley tool set

170-piece tool kit. Amazon


Don’t screw up this holiday season. (Other pun contenders: don’t be a nut this holiday season, don’t throw a wrench into your holiday plans.) A new toolkit makes a great gift for the holidays, especially for recent grads and young adults. This 170-piece Stanley tool set is currently 36 percent off.


Over-ear Bluetooth headphones. Amazon


Today on Amazon, BÖHM wireless overear Bluetooth headphones are 56 percent off. They’ve got active noise cancelling and a 16-hour battery life.


From games to building kits. Amazon


If you’re like me concerned that you still do not have gifts for your family—specifically your little sisters or brothers—today on Amazon, save up to 40 percent on toys like a Murder Mystery Party Game, Snap Circuits Sound Electronics kit, or this K’NEX roller coaster building set. There are plenty more to check out, here.

Model and craft kits

Get crafty. Amazon


Be a model gift giver with these model and craft kits. Build battleships, trains, bead bracelets, or 3D doodle.
