Bottles Galore

Water is like gold to a singer, and any actor and dancer will know the importance of having water with them at all times. Why not give them a colourful water bottle, so it’s never far from reach. Here’s some of our favourites:

Chilly's Bottles

S'ip by Swell


Steam Away

It’s all about those vocal chords, keeping them healthy and hydrated so they can create a heavenly sound. A steamer is a great gift for both actors and singers, soothing and hydrating the vocal chords whilst ensuring that the airways are free and open. Here’s a few options:

Steam Inhaler Cup

Rio Facial Sauna & Steamer



Amplify the Sound

If you know a singer who performs live, treat them to a dynamic microphone like the Shure sm58. It’s one of the most used microphones for live vocals and will put a smile on any singer's face, without breaking the bank. Find it here:

Gear 4 Music


Cover it Up

Brighten up a fun-loving photographer’s equipment with these quirky lens caps. Doughnut anyone?

Photo Jojo




Strappy Stuff

Photography gear can be expensive, but you don’t have to remortgage your house to get your hands on some really cool accessories. Show off a photographer’s personality with a colourful or personalised strap. Try these Etsy shops


Feedback Straps


Keep it Toasty

If you know any dancers, help them keep those pins warm this winter. As a dancer, you can never have too many pairs of leggings as it’s important to stay warm at all times in the studio. Woolly socks and gloves? Nope, not this year. 

Dance Direct



Bag it Up

Dance shoes, dance-wear, microphones, studio time.... These things all add up and there might not be much left for a swanky looking studio or kit bag. Get your singer, actor or dancer something they won’t spend money on themselves.
