Guitarist Gifts – Pickmaster Plectrum Punch V2 Plectrum Maker

I’m always looking for guitarist gifts for my brother who absolutely loves his guitars and anything to do with them! The Pickmaster Plectrum Punch V2 Plectrum Maker is just £16.99 from Prezzybox. It seemed like a fantastic guitarist gift for Alex to have fun with.

What is the Pickmaster Plectrum Punch V2 Plectrum Maker?

The Pickmaster Plectrum Punch V2 Plectrum Maker works just like a standard hole punch. You can punch a plectrum out of any kind of plastic, loyalty cards, gift cards, carton lids, plastic placemats, literally anything plastic up to 0.8mm thick. I tried it out for myself with an old unused sim card that had a funky pattern on it. It is really easy to use, I did worry I might not have the strength to push it down but it cuts straight through with very little pressure.

Punching & Sanding

For any rough edges, there is a built-in fine sander on the bottom of the handle. The fine sander is in the perfect place as you can sand the plectrums at the perfect angle using the lip of the handle to rest it on. Overall this tool is perfect, it does rub slightly on the side when used so leaves slight scratch marks on the side but that’s not really a major issue. I cut out a few different plectrums just to see how it worked.

What guitarist wouldn’t be happy to be able to punch their plectrums anytime? Create your own style punching out cool designs from all kinds of plastics. Saving the environment by re-using the plastic is an added bonus too! I’m always on the lookout for alternative gifts for Alex that will genuinely please him and keep him busy. I can definitely see him playing with this fantastic Pickmaster Plectrum Punch V2 Plectrum Maker for quite some time.

Alternative Gift Guide For Him

I’ve put together an alternative gift guide with my brother in mind. He is a cat loving, guitar playing, tea addict which makes buying gifts quite fun! Lots of us know a cat lover, a guitar player or a tea addict too so hopefully this little list of alternative gifts will be handy.

Alternative Gift Guide

Both my brother and I have used Mind (a mental health charity) over the years to help us with depression. I discovered some fantastic clothing from In Music We Trust which has some great designs and 50% of profits go to Mind. Alex loves his music and I know he will love this Vintage Tee (£12). IMWT have some awesome beanies (I want one!), vests, hoodies, caps and more.

Being a music lover Alex is forever after memory sticks to store music on. He needs them for coding too which is his latest hobby. Check out this awesome Etch’d 32GB USB stick for £17. You can have any design you want on etched on any of the products at Etch’d. I love how Alex’s name looks and I know he will love it too. There are 3 wood options to pick from – Maple, Rosewood and Dark Walnut. I love the Maple and can’t wait to see what Alex thinks!

 

Every tea addict needs a good mug and all cat lovers will love this one from Tesco for £2/3? I grabbed it whilst we were shopping and of course can’t find the receipt to check.. doh!

Of course if you have a mug you need a coaster and this festive one is adorable! As the cat looks very similar to Mia, Alex’s cat I think he will find this coaster quite cute.

Scope (a disability charity) also have some fab cat gifts in store too, products vary store to store but worth checking if you are shopping for a cat lover too!

A Cat Treat too!

Being a cat lover I couldn’t leave my brothers cat out and I love these fab cat treat cards from Wilko for £2. They have a great selection of pet gifts from treats to toys and all at a very reasonable price.

Of course when you buy presents you need to find some awesome gift wrap to go with it! I love the Personalised gift wrap from Pretty Gifted, you can add any text and design you like the from the available options. I thought since I was wrapping Alex and Mia’s presents and putting them in the same bag it only made sense to add ‘Merry Christmas Alex & Mia’ with Christmas trees.
