Musical Gifts

Musical gifts for birthdays, Christmas and every occasion

Home > Musical Gifts

We don’t just supply quality musical instruments for schools and preschool; we also provide the perfect musical gifts for family and friends!

And what could be more wonderful to give, and to receive, than a musical instrument? Especially one that’s natural, sustainable, and built to deliver enjoyment (and educational benefits) on day one, and to keep on delivering year after year.

Here you’ll find a selection of  musical gift ideas ranging from mini djembes through unusual hand percussion to carry bags and full sized drums. There’s something for everyone – from three years upwards, and there are  also some  great music sets for use in the home. And almost everything is accessible and SEN friendly.  If you don’t find quite what you’re looking for below, then do try the “search” in the top bar.

And we provide a FREE gift wrapping service – just put a note on your order to request gift wrapping and add any short note you’d like us to write on the tag.
