With Christmas just one week away, it’s time to nail down the final presents. We asked a few of our favorite artists what they’re giving this holiday season, and rounded them up into one list of great ideas. Check out the gift recommendations below:
24K Magic by Bruno Mars, brunomars.com, $10 CD/$20 Vinyl
A Very Kacey Christmas by Kacey Musgraves, kaceymusgraves.com, $20 Vinyl
“My go to gift would be giving my favorite music at the moment, which would either be Bruno Mars’ new record or Kacey Musgraves’ new Christmas record. Both are awesome!!!”
Tecovas Boots*, tecovasboots.com, $235
“I’ve bought a few different pairs myself, and will be giving out some to my friends and family this holiday. These cowboys boots look amazing, are immediately comfortable, and get you a custom boot fit at a reasonable price. I’d recommended the ‘Cartwright’ style.”

UE Boom Speaker, ultimateears.com, $199.99
“The UE Boom Speaker is my go-to gift. I take it with me everywhere because it’s portable, waterproof, and has a long battery life. The UE Boom is the best speaker for music lovers, the sound quality is incredible, it’s super loud and clear.”
Alex & Ani True Direction Charm Bracelet, alexandani.com, $28
“I love these bracelets!!! They are delicate and will go with anything. And as a gift, it can light up a friend’s life.”
Bath & Body Works Holiday Traditions Gift Set in Winter Candy Apple, bathandbodyworks.com, $14
“I’m obsessed with these! I love smelling candy apples all day long!
Gift Certificate From Stag Provisions, stagprovisions.com, $25 and up
“My go-to Christmas gift this year has been a gift certificate to STAG Provisions – a modern day general store that’s part antique, part clothing, part gift, part accessory, and part apothecary with something for every man. STAG always has a great variety of highly curated gift options that are unique and eclectic, and I routinely find great gifts there. Their online store has amazing gift suggestions to choose from and easy gift card options, either of which I would recommend for any guy in your life. If a regular gift card seems too ‘lazy,’ I’d definitely amp it up with one of their customized wooden nickel gift certificates which looks really cool but can only be redeemed at their physical locations in Austin, Houston, Dallas, and Venice, CA.”
The Rise and Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars by David Bowie, amazon.com, $20 Vinyl
“This David Bowie record has been on my short list of ‘must-have vinyls.’ It is even harder to find after his passing this year. Bowie’s concept album is super weird and a true work of art. And who doesn’t love a story about a spaceman who descends to Earth to save it but discovers rock and roll instead?“
Bass Boat Ranger 521C, vendors and prices vary
“This Christmas I’d like to get a new Bass Boat. A Ranger 521c would be cool with me. And maybe a new four seater side by side. Both things my family could enjoy with me.”
The Shotgun Seat Team
Tortuga Festival Tickets, tortugamusicfestival.com, $229 GA 3-day/$999 VIP 3-day
With a lineup featuring Kenny Chesney, Luke Bryan and Chris Stapleton, Tortuga 2017 is shaping up to be a must-see music event.
Splurge of the Season: Johnny Cash’s property on Old Hickory Lake
The property was highlighted in the film Walk the Line, and is where Cash went through his infamous detox period in the late 1960s. The Hendersonville, Tennessee, home was visited by the likes of Bob Dylan, Billy Graham and former president Ronald Reagan, and was the site of Cash’s “guitar pull” jam sessions of the 60s and 70s. The grounds include June Carter Cash’s bell garden, various family artifacts, and the original dock on Old Hickory Lake.
