The holidays are here, and DJs are notoriously difficult to shop for! We decided to lend a helping hand, and with a few polls, some research, and a bit of digging we came up with the best gifts to get for that DJ in your life-whether they’re in a strip club booth or elsewhere. Check out our DJ Christmas Wishlist below!

1. Magma Multi-Purpose Studio/Gig Bag 25 DJ Backpack
We’re kicking off our list with one of our favorite finds. Most DJs don’t have the luxury of keeping their gear at work, and taking care of it and keeping organization on the go can be difficult. This bag holds a 17″ laptop, a large DJ-Controller, a hard drive, power supplies, headphones, cables… the list is endless. If you want to spoil your DJ (or yourself!) this is a purchase that is going to be useful for years to come.
2. V-MODA Crossfade LP2 Vocal Limited Edition Over-Ear Noise-Isolating Metal Headphone (Matte Black)
Another slightly pricier gift that’s worth the price tag, headphones are a staple of any DJ booth and these are drool worthy. With custom engraving options and nearly 5 stars on Amazon, hopefully Santa is taking notes.
3. MRCUFF DJ Music Headphones Turntables Cassette Boom Box 4 Pairs Cufflinks
If you’re looking for something a bit more traditional these cuff links are sure to impress. Encourage your DJ to dress up with accessories that suit his style!
4. Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Go! Pro USB Audio System
This USB sound card is far and above one of the coolest, most useful gifts to make the list. For DJs that only have one internal sound card, pre-listening to tracks while working is impossible. This sound card is a cheap, portable, reliable solution. For just a bit more than the price of a lap dance you can plug and play!
5. Small Electronics Organizer Management Kit, Black
DJs have more cables and cords than they can count, and keeping them organized is nearly impossible. This roll solves that problem with elastic to keep each cable separated and a zip pocket for thumb drives or extra accessories.
6. OXO Good Grips Electronics Cleaning Brush
As hard as is it to keep equipment organized, it’s even harder to keep it clean. This brush is perfect to get into all of the tiny, sensitive places on all of the electronic equipment DJs need to bring their best show.
7. Traditional Medicinals Organic Throat Coat Lemon Echinacea Tea
Strip club DJs are quite literally the voice of the club, so protecting your voice is important. In cold season it’s important to be prepared, and Throat Coat tea is one of the best ways to keep your voice in the best shape for a long shift.
8. Vocal EZE Professional Throat Spray
Another option for emergency sore throats is Vocal EZE spray. Show your DJ that you care by showing them that you care about their voice!
9. Corsair Flash Survivor Stealth 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
Every DJ worries about worst case scenarios, especially equipment failures that can leave them without their music at crucial times. This military-style data transport is basically indestructible and offers enough space for emergency music files for any situation.
10. Case Logic JDS-6 USB Drive Shuttle 6-Capacity-Black
Need a place to store all of those thumb drives? This inexpensive case is perfect to keep all of your portable music organized and secure, so none of them end up lost at the bottom of a bag.
11. Audio-Technica AT-BG1 Soft Protective Microphone Pouch
Protecting your equipment is important, and the microphone is one of the most important tools a DJ has. Even if you already have a bag, having a backup is never a bad idea!
12. USB High speed Flash Memory Stick Pen Drive Disk (8GB, Baby Panda)
When it comes to flash drives, every PANDA member would love a panda! Flash drives in fun shapes are less likely to get lost and easier to hold onto as you try to figure out which way they actually fit the port.
13. HDE 3 LED USB Lamp Light with Flexible Gooseneck for Computer PC Laptops Notebooks
DJ booths are dark, especially in the strip club. Having a reliable light source can ease a lot of headaches, and this incredibly practical gift means there’s always a light on.
14. 45 Rpm Record Adapter Necklace Pendant
A lot of DJs are still nostalgic for the days of vinyl, and this necklace is a conversation starter that any music lover would enjoy wearing.
15. SUCK UK Cat Playhouse Series Cat Turntable
Last but certainly not least, there’s no better way to tell your DJ that anyone could do their job, even a cat! Jokes aside, thinking of someone’s pet at the holidays is just about one of the best ways you can show that you care!
