Band of the Month T-Shirt Club ($25)
Choose a plan and this service will send out a new band’s t-shirt every month, including a little ditty on the band, so you can go find their music and shows.
Feedbands ($25)
This is one VERY cool service. Members vote on which indie bands they love most then Feedbands presses their albums to vinyl. Subscribers then get new vinyl in the mail every month.
Vinyl Moon ($30)
Vinyl Moon is sort of like Feedbands, except they put together mix tapes of great music that you may have never heard of and press them to vinyl.

Our Faves
The Music Box ($5+)
Choose between The Envelope (one mix tape CD), The Bundle (two CDs plus the mix tape), or The Box (Two CDs plus extras). Why it’s my fave: Get new music on the cheap!
Turntable Kitchen ($27)
Each month get new music from up-and-coming artists and a unique menu to go with the playlist. Why it’s my fave: two of life’s best things: food and music.
VNYL ($32)
Create a profile and connect your Spotify, Soundcloud, Instagram, and tell VNYL a little bit about what you want in new music. Then, each month, choose a vibe. From there, you’ll be sent new music specifically matching your preferences! Why it’s my fave: Get what fits your life, not what someone else is trying to force feed you.

Well there you have it! If you can’t find a gift from this list, then you are doomed. Happy shopping!
