As our December issue hits the streets, it’s 70 degrees here in San Francisco, and on this balmy November afternoon, the crush of the holiday shopping frenzy seems blissfully far away … but those of us working in print media live in our own little time zones, so we’re already well into the spirit of the season.

This year, we wanted a real-world-musician angle for our wish list, so we aimed high: We hit up gear-savvy artists from The Crystal Method to Phoenix to Cage The Elephant for their favorite gift ideas for musicians and engineers. (Grab a highlighter and print this out; the fun begins HERE.) The great news? Despite the fact that these musicians generally fall into the elusive “that someone who has everything” category, their suggestions are, for the most part, perfectly appropriate for the musician on a budget. Most products run a few hundred dollars, and a handful cost less than five bucks. (Okay, we threw in one $15,000 mic for the dreamers.)

Once again, we’re reminded that technology has become the great equalizer—these days, you really can afford to use many of the same tools as the artists who inspire you. It’s all about how you use them. Happy shopping!
