If you still have some last-minute Christmas shopping to do, at this point, last minute might not even begin to explain the predicament in which you might find yourself in just a little over 24 hours from now. In any case however, whether you’re in search of the perfect stocking stuffer, or perhaps something small for a family or work gift exchange, music can make for a excellent gift—and for true music lovers, there’s nothing quite like the crisp clear sound of vinyl.
Or, if you feel like getting artsy and are on a budget this holiday season, I’ve even heard of people making clocks and all sorts of creative wall hangings and decorations out of old records, which might just also appeal to the music lover of the family or at your office as well.
