This gift guide will help you find gifts for podcast fans, no matter what the occasion!
Finding great gifts for podcast fans is easy…if you know what you’re looking for!
If you’re not a podcast listener yourself, then it might be difficult for you to find the best gift for the podcast fan you know. Let this gift guide point you in the right direction!
You’ve probably heard them talk about their favorite podcast. Check out Redbubble for a large selection of podcast t-shirts, podcast stickers, podcast mugs, phone cases, and more!
Headphones & Speakers
A true podcast fan needs great headphones, earbuds, or Bluetooth speakers. Here are some of my faves:
My husband has both the Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling headphones and the Bose SoundSport in-ear headphones. Both are amazing in terms of sound quality and holding up to being thrown around and tugged on. Just be sure to buy the version for Apple or Android, depending on the gift recipient.
Bose is the gold standard in sound quality, which comes at a price. I’ve found great sales on Bose products at OneCall.com.
Wireless Bluetooth headphones are great for listening to podcasts while doing work around the house or yard. These Sony Wireless Behind-Neck In Ear Headphones sit around your neck while you move about (I know, because I use ones just like them!)
Being able to listen to podcasts wherever you roam is a major bonus for any podcast fan. This portable Bluetooth speaker is super affordable & a best-seller on Amazon!
Tickets to a Live Podcast Event
More and more podcasts are taking their show on the road! Thrill your friend or family member with tickets to go see their favorite podcast performed live!
A lot of podcast fans also love audiobooks. An Audible membership is a great gift idea that lets your gift recipient choose any audiobook they like. And members get access to Audible Channels, which includes original audio series and podcasts!
Books By Podcast Hosts
A lot of super popular podcast hosts have published books based on the well-loved content that they make their podcasts from. Here a few popular books by podcast hosts that make great gifts for podcast fans:
The World of Lore: Monstrous Creatures
This book by Lore podcast host Aaron Mahnke includes creepy-interesting true tales and beautiful illustrations.
Bored and Brilliant: How spacing out can unlock your most productive & creative self
After listening to an excerpt of this book’s first chapter, I added it to my own Christmas list (that I gave to my mom)! The book is by Manoush Zomorodi, the host of WNYC’s Note to Self podcast., and tackles the challenge of limiting smartphone use (Hellooo, podcast fans!) and why it might make us better people for it!
Malcolm Gladwell: Collected (hardcover book collection)
Genius author Malcolm Gladwell reached a whole new audience with his Revisionist History podcast. The unique take on historical events quickly made this a top-rated podcast. This collection of his three best-selling books makes a great gift idea!
Welcome to Night Vale: A Novel
This fictional mystery is based on one of the most popular audio drama podcasts out there. This is just one of the Night Vale books – get them all and make one podcast fan really happy!
The Mental Floss History of the World Book
History podcasts are some of the most popular podcasts there are. This funny history book by the Mental Floss team is one of my faves, and would make a great gift for a podcast fan.
Meal Kit Service
As an avid podcast listener, I hear a lot of ads for meal kit delivery services. I haven’t tried one yet, but I’ve always wanted to! Maybe the podcast fan in your life would appreciate a gift subscription to one of these services!
I hope this gift guide will help you find a gift that your favorite podcast fan will love! Don’t forget to check back for updates whenever you need a new gift for a podcast listener!
