The holiday season is upon us, so if you’re still searching for the perfect last minute gift, look no further than our handy guide to offer some holly jolly tips. Have a browse of some of our top presents for this oh so merry time of the year.

Vinyl Me, Please

Vinyl Me, Please

A new-age take on the art of record collection, each month Vinyl Me, Please works directly with an artist and label to bring its subscribers a custom pressing directly to their doorstep. Faultlessly curated, each record is accompanied by a 12″ x 12″ album-inspired art print and cocktail pairing recipe. (photo: Vinyl Me, Please)

Record Culture Magazine

Take a leisurely tour into the thoughtfully curated homes, studios, and record collections of select DJs, producers, and musicians with Record magazine. Editor Karl Henkell teases conversation out of his subjects, each interviewee essentially drawing their own portrait as Henkell and his team leave them plenty of room to speak openly about their lives more generally, including their passions, politics and enduring concerns.

PO-32 Teenage Engineering

 Never before has a drum machine that sounds this good with literally endless sound capabilities been set at a price this good. Meet PO-32 tonic, the new gold standard drum machine. And yes, it even comes in a gold plated cardboard box. (photo: Teenage Engineering)

AIAIAI TMA-2

The TMA-2 system (literally) breaks headphones down into four configurable elements: headbands, cables, speaker units and earpads. This year, the design focused Danish brand also went wireless with a swappable headband. Assembly is easy, cables twist and lock in, ear pads clip on, and cups and headband slide easily into place. It's weirdly satisfying, like building flat pack furniture. (photo: emwng.com)

Helvetica / Objectified / Urbanized: The Complete Interviews

During the course of creating his trio of design documentaries—Helvetica, Objectified, and Urbanized—documentarian Gary Hustwit has amassed nearly 100 hours of interview footage featuring more than 75 leading designers, creatives, and thinkers. Hustwit has compiled transcriptions of each interview into a book, Helvetica/Objectified/Urbanized: The Complete Interviews. (photo: Gary Huswit)

AM Clean Sound Record cleaner box set

Including an AM Record cleaner box set on a gift guide on the AM website probably seems obvious at best, and like an ingenuine advertisement at worst. But hear us out, this is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Let your records become dirty, dusty and covered in grime, you’ll mess up your stylus and ruin your collection . Keep ‘em clean and they’ll last a lifetime. (photo: AM Clean Sound)

Touché

If you haven't ever seen anything quite like the Touché MIDI Controller before, you're not the only one. With the Touché, the Innovative French startup, Expressive E aims to bring expressive touch control to the masses. An impressive standalone device that can control multiple MIDI/CV parameters across multiple instruments in a hands-on way, it sensitively brings any hardware and software to life. (photo: Touché)

Yoncé black satin bauble

Fed up of your mismatched ornaments and decades-old tinsel? What could be better to deck out your tree than black satin Queen B baubles? The soul singer's new holiday collection has us feeling all kinds of festive. The only thing that's missing is a Beyoncé angel to sit on the top of our tree. We think you've missed a trick with that one, Bey. (photo: Yoncé)
