When it comes to buying gifts for my husband, I stick to three categories: sports, travel, and music. When his birthday rolled around this year, his favorite sports seasons were over and we just moved to Texas for his new job (no vacation time off). After scouring the Internet, mainly the Nordstrom “gifts for him” section (what can I say, it’s the easiest option), I remembered that I still had one category left – music! I started searching for upcoming concert tickets, live shows, etc. No luck. I happened to have the Urban Outfitters website up during one of my online shopping binges and saw a Music + Tech tab. They had so many options, but I knew my husband would really love a record player. If I was going to buy one, I wanted it to match our style as well – classic and minimalist.
I gravitated towards the Crosley C10 Turntable. I knew the look was exactly what my husband would want.The simple light colored wood base and black accents compliment each other. The minimalist design and advanced features sold me.
An added bonus- my husband not only loved his gift, we now have a hobby we share together. Whenever we travel to a new city, we try to find record stores and search for new and vintage records.
Our record collection is growing rapidly. Listening to new music through an old method just provides a fun mix of new and old school vibes. The vintage records bring us back in time and we love sharing those memories with each other.

There is just something about listening to records on a record player. I can’t wait to hunt for some more. Next on my list is a Maxwell record. Which records would you collect?
