Unique Guitar Player Gift – Pick Wallet

If you’re looking for a cheap and affordable gift for a guitar player for Christmas or other occasion, a pick wallet can be a really cool thing to give.  Sometimes as a musician you don’t know you need something until you see somebody else use it, or until it’s given to you.

As a guitar player, or if you use a pick on any kind of stringed instrument (like a bass or mandolin), you leave picks all over the place.  If I had a nickel for every guitar pick my wife found in the dryer, I’d have enough money to buy a new dryer.  Sometimes I need a guitar pick and I can’t find one, or if I’m on a gig they are all in the bottom of my gig bag just floating around.  A pick wallet organizes your picks all in one place, keeps them clean, and allows you to make sure you have a good supply on hand (and you know when to buy more).  Consider getting a pick wallet for that guitar player in your life – they will love it!

There are more than a few guitar pick wallets with different styles, designs, colors, and even shapes on eBay right now for as little as $5 or $10.  These would make great gifts for any guitar player or musician in your family.

 

Make Your Own Guitar Picks

Ever wanted to make your own guitar picks? Looks like it’s pretty easy to do with a little time, some imagination, and some household throwaway items. I was surprised how inventive people can be. The Makezine had an article on making your own credit card guitar picks that was pretty cool. How much easier could it be, you just trace an existing pick – and then cut them out!

Check out this Flickr photo pool of homemade guitar picks! This guy has been using every imaginable including cardboard, cd’s, aluminum, plastic packaging, and the lid of a laptop!

Here’s a YouTube video of a guy making his own clear guitar pick:

The only disadvantage I can see to all this is the fact that you have to sand the edges of your homemade picks with an emery board before using – and that seems a bit tedious. I am personally pretty attached to my Fender Medium Tortoise shell picks, and I can go through one every couple days. I prefer buying my guitar picks in a bulk lot – so I don’t have to buy any again for quite awhile?
