While some of us may have a greater disdain for Christmas music than others, these carefully selected gifts are perfect for any music lover because they keep on giving all year long.

Cozy in Grey, by Finnish designer Harri Koskinen, plays with the look of light through the "beauty and changing reflections" of glass, which is mouthblown with a textile cord (also comes in a milky white to set the mood). Muuto's growing collection brings modern Scandinavian design to the fore, introducing a range of work—lighting, furniture, and accessories—by new Nordic talents.
LG's Kompressor vacuum boasts the company's DualForce+ suction system, a bagless bin, and a 40-foot cord--though we think its remote control for adjusting settings while cleaning might be a little over the top. Nonetheless, the LuV300B gets the job done and is one of the few vacuums to be certified asthma- and allergy-friendly by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. (HEPA filter equipped.)

If you're one of the lucky ones with a backyard that's got a bit of extra space, there's certainly worse ways to spend a warm afternoon than whiling away the hours swaying gently in a balmy breeze. Fatboy's Headdemock is roomy enough for a few folks so, you know... invite us over.
