Let’s be honest. Receiving gifts, fun. Buying gifts, not fun.

We’ve compiled a list of cool gifts for DJ’s under $100 that your favorite DJ will use and abuse in spite of an un-kind economy. Let us know if you’ve come across some good ideas or gifts that are reasonably priced.

Ableton Live Intro 300x300 Top 7 Cool Gifts for DJs under $100

Ableton is one of my favorite new software products. This is a intro edition for the newbie producer that will get him/her off to a quick start for making and producing music. It will take about a good year to start producing to really learn, master and start producing good decent music before you can upgrade to the full professional version. I’ve played with this edition and it’s more than enough to satisfy a beginner producer’s appetite.

Ahh, the laptop stand. For someone who has no idea what a DJ Laptop stand is, it looks like a silly, illogical piece of metal that holds up a laptop. For performing DJ’s, this amazing piece of construction make it 1000x easier to DJ while watching the crowd and operating the equipment. The DJ stand, unless he/she already has one, is a must have for any DJ looking to get good at the craft.

Novation came out with these “dicers” several years ago and act as midi controllers that fit onto any DJ setup and compatible with any DJ software. These dicers make a great addition to a DJ’s repertoire when it comes to mixing and mashing up music quickly and elegantly on the dance floor. I really like how the dicers fit into the setup comfortably without having to go above and beyond to access it

You’re wondering, what is a banana stand doing in a dj gift list?? ┬áThis is one of my favorites — a banana stand used as a headphone stand! It’s amazing, take a look at the reviews and see the great ratings that everybody gives it. It goes to show creative uses for normal everyday products, even a banana holder can find value in a DJ’s gear box.

64gb usb stick 300x300 Top 7 Cool Gifts for DJs under $100 Top 7 Cool Gifts for DJs under $100
No DJ, and I make a very important point here, NO DJ can ever have enough usb sticks. I have about 10 and I either have given them to people to borrow (never to be seen again) or have filled all of them with a load of music ready to be played at an event. I can’t imagine any DJ traveling without a USB stick or external USB drive. I’ve specifically chosen the 64 GB usb stick because its got tons of space and DJ’s will always tell you they never have enough space. I bought a 1TB (that’s 1,000 GB, or 1,000,000 MB) and it’s almost full!! Ridiculous! Get your DJ at 64 GB usb stick and they’ll be very thankful.

Don’t tell anybody but I bought a bunch of these speakers because after I heard them once, I was just amazed at how loud they actually were. My first impressions, before hearing them were biased because I’ve never heard a good set of mini speakers that don’t sound like you’re playing them from a cell phone. If you’ve ever shared music from your cell phone by playing it really loud, that is NOT how this sounds. It really sounds like a good set of speakers played at a lower volume. Obviously due to the size of the speaker, they cannot be played for more than a crowd of like 5-6 without being drowned out in conversation but for a DJ who doesn’t want to listen to music through the headphones, this is the PERFECT addition to tech savvy DJ. There are also other alternatives to other mini speakers Top 7 Cool Gifts for DJs under $100
