I borrow this week’s title of “A Thing or Two About a Tune or Two” from one of my favorite movies, “Mean Girls.” While it never comes down to Queen Bee coercion to get me out for some retail therapy, I acknowledge that shopping is not the most pleasurable experience for all. And certainly there are days when the exhausting task of searching for the perfect gift for an erudite music lover seems futile. In this case, pantless shopping from the comfort of your bed is preferable. If a leopard print Snuggie just won’t cut it this year, you have come to the right place. Curl up, have a cup of tea, and peruse these awesome items we found for the mélomanes in your life (you don’t even have to put your pants on).
