Twitter inspired gifts for the flutist in your life

A twitter friend of mine posted a couple of weeks ago that she was decorating her tree with flute angel ornaments and they were all gifted to her in some way. I responded that perhaps as flutists, we block out seeing anything remotely flute related on the shelves except when we’re bombarded with all sorts of goodies at flute fairs.

So if you have a flutist in your life that can’t bear the thought of receiving another ornament (as beautiful as they are), here are a few twitter inspired ideas for you:

Meerenai Shim’s Sometimes the City is Silent – this debut CD would make a great gift for all levels of flutists. I got the opportunity to see Meerenai perform at the Andover Educators’ Biennial Conference last June and her energy on stage is infectious. She preserves that same energy on her recording. Follow Meerenai on twitter as she continues to premiere new works!

Fluterscooter Flute Case Cover – I bought one of the new canvas bags earlier this year, and I love it. Stylish and roomy, this bag does everything I need it to. For flashier types, you'll love the patent leather and silver options while low key flutists will find the canvas bags attractive. Fluterscooter is on twitter, too!

Consider a gift certificate from Flute Pro Shop. Owner Joan Sparks is regularly seen at flute events in the Mid-Atlantic region with loads of flutes, music and accessories. My current favorite thing on her site is the Flute Resting Pad, a velvety soft cushion for you to place your flute when not in use. Follow Flute Pro Shop on twitter!

Body Mapping for Flutists: What Every Flute Player Needs to Know about the Body – this guide by Andover Educator Lea Pearson is a must have in every flute teacher or flute student’s library. If you have questions about balance, hand position, or breathing, this is the resource for you!

4) Fluteworld gift certificate – need I say more? Follow the store here.

Happy holidays from The Sensible Flutist!
