London Calling

Serious music aficionados have all heard of the legendary Abbey Road studios in London.  This hallowed studio has recorded many Grammy winning works by the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Duran Duran, Kate Bush, Radiohead, Florence & the Machine, John Williams/Star Wars, etc. 

Give your music fan the Abbey Road: The Best Studio in the World book by Alistair Lawrence which includes a complete history, discography, album covers, and photos of many of the bands who have recorded at the studio.
Spice It Up:  You don’t have to be a Beatles fanatic to love these Beatles lyrics cups & saucers!  Cleverly packaged, the saucer looks like a vintage vinyl record and the cup features lyrics on the back with the title on the front.  The retro colors and fonts make them especially nifty. You’ll be humming along as you sip! 

Check out this cute Tea Sub infuser to combine with the cups & saucers.  A mini-yellow submarine ode to the Beatles will make you want to break out their old songs for afternoon of Beatle mania!

While these all make a great birthday gift or Father’s Day/Mother’s Day gift, together it makes an especially great Anniversary gift. 

Why?  Well, think of the endearing love songs by the Beatles:  "All You Need Is Love," "She Loves You," "A Hard Days Night," "Eight Days A Week," "Here Comes The Sun," "I Want To Hold Your Hand," "Love Me Do," "P.S. I Love You," etc.

Run with the British theme

  • Or, if no band is nearby, buy a box set of the artist or download their tunes to listen to at home.

Now, if you want to really go over the top…

  • Plan a trip to Vegas and take in the Cirque Du Soleil’s Beatle inspired show called Love at the Mirage Hotel
