This classic makes an excellent gift for the music lover. I gave my husband one a few years ago and he loves it. We listen to his dad’s old records on it and have also been able to get some new records with a lot of our favorite music. This hardwood turntable is also gorgeous to look at and would look great with any decor!

They can listen to their favorite books while they work, while they drive, while they clean, or any other time of day. We have an audible subscription and we use it daily. It’s fantastic! This gift will put a smile on anyone who loves books!
