Who else hasn’t thought of anything to get their significant other for Valentine’s Day?

V-Day is a tough one. You don’t want to go too extravagant ’cause hey, there’s still birthdays and other holidays to think of. But a lil’ something is nice too! Well, let us help you figure out how to find that perfect cool gift for Valentine’s Day that says “I didn’t go to Rite Aid at the last minute to get you chocolates, I actually put some thought into this.” Here are 10 ideas for a nice Valentine’s Day gift.

Turntables

Through this Sunday, we’re having a sale for 20% off all turntables at all three stores. Plus, when you buy a turntable this weekend, you’ll get a $10 gift certificate for used vinyl to start that collection. Either our Red Essential II turntable or red and white Crosley Executive turntable (as pictured above) make for a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift that will last. They’re some of the nicest and certainly most aesthetically pleasing turntables we carry — they’re statement pieces as well as a great way to listen to music.

Watch Neil Young Record Straight onto Vinyl on 'Fallon'; Third Man Record Player and New Neil Young Album Out Now

Posted by Billy Gil, May 14, 2014 04:28pm | Post a Comment

Perhaps the coolest thing on TV this week was on Monday, when Neil Young showed up on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with Jack White to record live in White’s refurbished Voice-O-Graph booth, which records straight to vinyl. You can see the pair showing this thing off in the clip below while Louis C.K. watches on, joking about recording laughter-free comedy in it.

Neil Young recorded his entire new album, the covers record A Letter Home, live in the 1947 Voice-O-Graph booth, coming out with a record that pops and hisses with old-school flair. Jack White says it's the only vinyl-recording booth left in the world that’s open to the public, as the booths were typically found in arcades and at tourist attractions from about the 1940s through the ’70s.Visitors to Third Man Records in Nashville can record live in the booth and mail their record out, as seen in this video.
