Being a DJ isn’t as easy as it looks. Not every controller is equipped with a sync button to mix the tracks, waking up whenever you feel like makes it hard to keep a schedule and picking songs that fit the vibe can be a real head scratcher. Thankfully, you can help. With the holidays on their way, why not give the DJ in your life something that will make them feel appreciated and help them do one of the toughest, most demanding jobs in the world. To help you find the perfect gift, we’ve assembled this handy gift guide.
THE ROW BACKPACK 11 – $3900
Lugging all the DJ equipment around can be hard on the back but it need not be hard on your style or the wallet. This cute backpack from the Olsen’s fashion label The Row is a steal. Being all about that bass doesn’t mean you can’t be all about cute accessories.
LA PRAIRIE PLATINUM RARE CELLULAR CREAM – $1289
There’s nothing worse than an ugly DJ. Nothing. Not even Ebola. Keep those wrinkles away with this go to item that was a fixture in the handbags of all the best DJs at Paris fashion week. Cocaine is terrible for skin health and this can keep you snorting and glowing radiantly all night long and even the next day.
ACQUA DI CRISTALLO TRIBUTO A MODIGLIANI – $60000
Keep your favourite DJ refreshed and healthy with this artful H2O. Sipping on Dom Rosé can leave you dehydrated. We all know that besides making you look bad, dehydration can mess with your mind. An alert DJ will know exactly when to play Beyoncé for the crowd or throw in something more underground like Disclosure or Diplo. Worth every penny.
HERMES HIT GLOVES – $460
These gloves are the must have item this season for all the DJs playing award show after parties. Not only do they look great but they also protect nails from breaking and fingertips from those ugly calluses that can result from twisting the sound knobs on the mixer. Nothing says love like these babies. Show you care this Christmas.
BETONY VERNON UNICORN BUTT PLUG – $3475
They say after the show it’s the after party and after the party it’s the hotel lobby, but what about when you wanna freak somebody? The latest must have item in every swag bag this season is Silver Betony Unicorn Butt Plug. The style and design will make any special DJ the life of the orgy. Also makes a great duster to keep DJ control stuff clear and clean.
GRAND MARNIER CUVÉE SPÉCIALE CENT CINQUANTENAIRE – $220
Don’t be fooled by the low price. What this 50-year old liqueur lacks in class, it makes up for in great taste and is almost indistinguishable from premium luxury brands. Put it in a glass and no one will know the difference! The DJ of your heart could mix it with their favourite low calorie soda for delicious treat.
