As the holiday giving season fast approaches, trying to find that perfect gift for your friends, family, and loved ones becomes more and more difficult. Hip-Hop Wired has you covered on these six fantastic gifts for the Hip-Hop Head in your life.
This guide is just a brief primer for the weeks ahead, especially since most of us will need more ideas for the whole household towards the end of the month. However, we feel these handly and innovative items will make fine gifts in a pinch or could actually blow someone’s socks off.
Check out the Six Gifts for the Hip-Hop Head guide below.
First things first, before you put on any gear or step outside, you need to be fresh and clean to do so. With everyone on notice as the pandemic has ravaged nations, people are caring more about personal hygiene. Soapbox offers a wide array of personal care products, including the much-needed hand sanitizer, among their many offerings. But what’s super dope about Soapbox is that each purchase goes to donate soap and other goods to those in need across five continents.
Pluggerz offers a wide array of hearing protection equipment and now has a device primarily used for music. The uni-fit style promises to fit all ears and will allow the user to experience the best music has to offer while protecting the listener at the same time.

The Butterfly Effect: How Kendrick Lamar Ignited the Soul of Black America by Marcus J. Moore
List Price: $27.00
We think the gift of literature is one that promises many returns and this offering from music journalist Marcus J. Moore examines the works of one of Hip-Hop’s greatest stars in Kendrick Lamar. With surprising detail and careful curiosity, the book takes a long look at K-Dot’s impact on the culture and what it means for the genre going forward.
4. Beats FlexSource:apple
We’ve featured the Beats Flex in a review earlier this year but we’re bringing it back because, for starters, these are some really good headphones for the money. Yes, we know the wired thing might not be the move for some but if you can get past that, you’ll be giving someone a pair of headphones with good sound, and extremely solid battery life.
5. Koala Sampler by Elf AudioSource:Koala Sampler
Koala Sampler by Elf Audio
If you have a budding producer or beat-maker in your life, they probably have all the tools in the world at their disposable but do they have one on their phone or smart device? Probably not. That’s where the Koala Sampler from Elf Audio comes in. Fashioned after the classic SP-303 and SP-404 samplers made famous by J Dilla, Madlib, and others, this sampler helps one complete the job instead of giving them reasons to stall out on making new heat.
6. Very RelaxedSource:Very Relaxed
Very Relaxed is a fashion brand that aims to keep the discerning Hip-Hop heads in your life looking, well, very relaxed. The brand’s fall collection features hats, hoodies, and an all-important face and body balm to keep the ashiness at bay. Created in part by tastemaker and world-class MC Fresh Daily, Very Relaxed is one to watch.
