Spring brings not only sunshine, flowers and longer days, it also brings the end of the school year, commencements, and maybe the task of choosing a perfect gift for those in your life that are either graduating musicians or their educators. There are many options now available, at virtually all price points. With choices that run from under a dollar, up to a few hundred dollars, Pender's Music‘s themed gift department has something for everyone.

Music-themed gifts are certainly nothing new. Music-embossed pencils, refrigerator magnets, party supplies and more continue to be perennial sellers and basic items in any music gifts inventory. However, without a doubt, the choice and selection of other items that are offered nowadays has become much more varied, sophisticated, and interesting. Popular items for students now include over-the-door hangers, trinket boxes, and lanyards. When narrowing down the myriad musical options, "It's helpful if I know how much you want to spend, what instrument your musician plays, and whether the gift recipient is male or female. Once I have the basic information, it's pretty easy for me to help you find just what you're looking for," says Carol Wilbur, Gift Buyer for Pender's Music Co.

Wilbur has more than 27 years experience in buying music-themed gifts for the company's three sheet music stores in Denton (TX), Oklahoma City, and Dallas. Whether the gift recipient plays in the school band, sings in the choir, takes lessons on piano or guitar, or just sings karaoke at home, Wilbur says "giving them a music-themed gift acknowledges their talent, and lets them know that you care about their music-making."

And when it comes to the music educators and music teaching professionals: the band directors, choir leaders, piano teachers, glee club directors and the like, music-themed art and related items can be particularly meaningful, beautiful and quite individual. Pender’s Music Co. is one of the exclusive distributors of Jeff Laibson’s artworks, which are painted art pieces and prints inspired by flowing, melodic music, full of rhythm, movement and silence. Other items that any music educator would love include music-inspired ceramic art tiles, trinket boxes, and picture frames. “Finding something that will remind the educator of the student that gave the item to them is the goal,” suggests Wilbur. “You want to make sure that the gift is a lasting one; that when the recipient uses or views it, they think of the person that gave it to them. Those are the traits of any perfect gift, whether it is music-themed or not. That being said, I’m always on the lookout for unique, eclectic items to add to our music-themed gift inventory. I just love it when I find things that I know will fill a particular niche in our offerings, whether it be based on price, volume, variety or one-of-a-kind pieces. It’s the depth of our stock that makes us the perfect place to shop for all the music people in your life. And believe me, if I don’t have it, I’ll sure do my best to find it for you. It’s what we all do each and every day for all of our customers.”
