We all know them.

That person who just waves off your gift-related questions and says, "I'll like anything you get me," who seems to always have the latest in everything, whose taste is so refined and specific that you just know that every gift you buy them is gonna end up collecting dust in the back of their closet. Whether they're your spouse, significant other, parent, or co-worker, we know one thing: They're a musician.

In the same way that musicians are perfectionists about their music, they're often the same way about the rest of their lives, from their tech to their clothes. This, of course, makes it incredibly hard to buy gifts for them. Sure, there's probably some music engineering software they'd love, or maybe a new guitar tuner; but how are you, a non-musician, supposed to know anything about that stuff? Fear not, while many musicians seem like enigmas, there are a few factors that they all have in common, which means there are some valentines gifts that your musical loved one is guaranteed to love no matter what.

Style:

There are two things you need to consider when clothes-shopping for a musician: comfort and cool-factor. Let's be honest: A big reason most people get into music is because of the look, which means that anything you buy has to be on-style. But it's also important to consider the kind of lifestyle a musician leads. Odds are, they spend a lot of time lugging around heavy equipment, crammed into vans, and rehearsing for long hours, and then after all of that, they have to be ready to perform. Luckily, you don't always have to sacrifice comfort for style.

Black Dress Code

This site is all about comfortable, basic black clothes made specifically for musicians. If your musician plays in an orchestra or other ensembles, it's likely they're required to wear all black for concerts. Now, with this site made for and by musicians, they have a range of durable and flattering options to rock comfortably all year long.


Gear:

No, you're never gonna know exactly what musical equipment the musician in your life needs unless they tell you, but there are a few things that they're sure to use no matter what.

High Fidelity Ear Plugs

Unlike regular earplugs, these earplugs don't distort the quality of the sound. They just filter out harmful decibel levels, allowing your beloved musician's hearing to stay perfectly intact, even at the loudest concerts or gigs.



Pick Punch

Guitar players are always digging through their pockets looking for a pick, but with this pick punch, anything can be used to strum those strings. As long as they can find an old gift card or other plastic material, they're never without a pick!


Musician Hand Exerciser

No matter what instrument your loved one plays, odds are that they need to keep their hands strong and healthy to excel at their craft. That's never been easier than with this hand-grip exerciser, guaranteed to increase finger dexterity and grip strength with frequent use.


Everyone's had a miserable experience getting a new mattress—lugging it up your apartment building, maneuvering it just right between the stairwell, or shimmying it through a narrow doorway. Good news: those days are long gone. Now, the bed-in-a-box phenomenon makes choosing the right mattress and scheduling delivery so easy. No need to hire movers when you can lift the convenient box all by yourself. Casper is the leader in the bed-in-a-box space, offering the ultimate comfort for the healthiest night's sleep.

Casper's mattresses are scientifically engineered for the soundest sleep possible. The bed is made with Zoned Support to keep your back and shoulders aligned properly, while its plush comfort made with high-quality foam is guaranteed to be breathable and cool throughout the night. Specifically designed not to transfer motion (yes, that means if your partner wakes up in the middle of the night you won't feel a thing), Casper's award-winning mattress is engineered to be the perfect combination of firm support and plush comfort.

People love sleeping on their Casper, the last mattress you'll ever need. Here's what they have to say:

"Unwrapping the mattress could not have been more simple. I didn't want to get out of the bed after spending the first night. It felt like it was hugging me with the perfect combination of softness and support. And all of this at such a reasonable price!" - Vincent

"Happy with our new bed! We've tried other bed in box companies and felt dissatisfied. The beds were always too soft or sagged at the edges. We LOVE our Casper! " - Nicholas

"So worth it! I love my Casper mattress! It's everything it was advertised to be and more. It's so supportive and comfortable! I can sleep on my side again and my shoulder doesn't hurt. It was worth every penny I paid for it!" - Panagiota

"Like sleeping on a cloud! My husband and I love this mattress!! I literally feel like I'm floating; there are no pressure points! We both had pillow top mattresses before this that were equally priced to a Casper and it is on a whole different level of quality!" - Elizabeth

"I replaced a foam mattress with the Casper and didn't realize how terribly I was sleeping until I made the switch! Keeps fairly cool and is cushy without totally swallowing your body. I'm recommending the Casper to everyone I know." - Annie

If you're still skeptical about the Casper mattress, they offer a 100-night risk-free trial so you have nothing to lose by trying it out (spoiler: they're pretty certain you'll love it). If you have back pain, restless sleep, or it's just time for a new mattress, the Casper is engineered to help you wake up refreshed and ready to tackle the day ahead.
