    1. Smithsonian Rock and Roll: Live and Unseen

    Price: $25.47 (Hardcover)

    Where To Buy: Amazon

    This is a rare novelty for rock n' roll lovers, music history lovers, and just plain music lovers. A couple of years ago, Smithsonian Books issued a call of action to fans: dig into those ancient photo albums and grimy attics to submit personally taken concert photographs! The result? A thick book packed with never-before-seen visuals of iconic artists including Nirvana, Stevie Wonder, and Joni Mitchell. Oh, and Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Led Zeppelin, Leonard Cohen, Pink Floyd, Amy I need to keep going? There's even shots of contemporary artists like Adele and Alabama Shakes!

    Spanning over six decades, this 200-sum page book covers the gamut of rock n' roll history with over 140 artists. With up-close snapshots accompanied by artist descriptions, this outstanding collection will let you relive those moments you never actually lived.

    2. Mick Rock: The Rise of David Bowie, 1972-1973

    Price: $36.01 (Hardcover)

    Where To Buy: Barnes and Noble

    Attention, David Bowie fans! In 2015, Mick Rock, Bowie's photographer/creative partner in the early 70s, compiled various images of this inventive legend. The book description states, "This collection, featuring around 50 percent previously unpublished images, brings together spectacular stage shots, iconic photo shoots, as well as intimate backstage portraits." It's a sure way to get an in-depth look at this inspirational artist who broke down boundaries with his innovative style, forever impacting pop-culture and music.

    Where To Buy: Amazon

    I'm a huge Twin Peaks fan, and if you or a friend/family member are too, then this gift is perfect. If you've seen the return this year, and still haven't had enough, listen to this mix to get you back into Lynch's ultra-dreamy zone. Even if you aren't a Twin Peaks fan, the music itself will win you over. It's also gotten excellent reviews.

    Where To Buy: Amazon

    Record clocks are a vintage treasure, and this handmade Elvis clock is no exception. With the original 12" Elvis Presley vinyl record "Elvis," it's a unique find for music collectors. When I was younger, I had a special Motown clock in my bedroom, and I regret getting rid of it to this day. There are various record clocks with other artists as well. Don't make the same mistake I did--hurry up and order!
