Weird and Expensive Classic Rock Holiday Gift Ideas
The holiday shopping season is here and with it comes the agonizing stress of trying to find the perfect gifts.
What do you get for the person on your list who has everything? We suggest a souvenir from their favorite classic rock musician.
According to the National Retail Federation, consumers are expected to spend more than $700 billion this holiday season, a 4.1 percent increase from last year's total. And while gift purchases make up only a percentage of that number, it's clear the holidays are a time to give (and spend). So, why put you money toward another technical gadget when you can buy a piece of music fandom instead?
Many bands have distinct, rare and sometimes strange items available for purchase. Think these artists are creative with their music? They're even more imaginative when it comes to their merchandise. Be ready to open up your wallet as many of these items come with a hefty price tag. Instruments, artwork, drinkware, dog beds, clothing, crystals and more are up for grabs on various bands’ websites.
We scoured the internet to find some of the more interesting, and exorbitant, gifts you can buy this holiday season. These aren't your typical tour T-shirts, and there's definitely no fruitcake among them. Whether you’re looking for friends, family or just shopping for yourself, there’s bound to be something on our list that catches your eye.
The links to purchase all 25 items are found at the bottom of this page. Happy shopping!
