Teacher Appreciation Week Gift Guide

Once again, Teacher Appreciation Week is upon us. This is the time of year to think about your teacher (or your child’s teacher) and be thankful that teaching is their job and not yours.  This year, you can do better than simply buying a gift card. A rockstar teacher would appreciate something nice for the teacher’s desk, or maybe a nice rockstar keychain. Here are the best rockstar desk organization supplies out there:

Cassette tape wall pockets
Music Notes, Musical Instrument Colorful Paperclips (100 count)


Little B 100039 Decorative Paper Tape, Music Notes
Music notes, treble clef design tape

There are so many cool music themed desk organization and songwriting supplies out there, I had to give them their own page.

We know that teachers carry a lot of keys so a nice key chain or key fob will be well received. While keychains and key fobs have their own page, here is one of the rockstar favorites that your teacher really needs:

Guitar amp wall mounted key holder

Of course, many of us would rather just give a gift card and be done with it. There is nothing wrong with that. Teachers will appreciate you making the effort, they certainly expect that from their students!

Music and wine racks

I have written about wine racks before. At the time I didn’t realize just how popular rockstar wine racks would be, and I didn’t realize just how fast the available styles change. Here is a new collection of music themed wine racks – a perfect way to store your wine and show your rockstar style!

Cello wine rack

Though we don’t normally associate the cello with rock n roll, I couldn’t leave enough alone – given the beautiful shape and large storage capacity.

The personal touch

Part of what inspired me to start Live Like A Rock Star was the idea of a hand-curated site with quality rock n roll merchandise and ideas.  Robots cannot do this job.  An automated search for any music or rockstar search terms will yield hundreds or thousands of hits that are not relevant to music or rockstars.  Or it will return hundreds (or thousands) of coffee mugs.

To have a real rock n roll selection of products requires a personal touch.  An actual human being that will find the otherwise hard to find awesome products and put them in one place.  We want our homes to be a personal reflection, and robots are not well suited to this job.  There is no “awesome” search filter to get rid of the “lame” and “irrelevant”.

The personal touch works best in teams.  Live Like A Rock Star recently got a shoutout from DripTeez on their blog.  Live Like A Rock Star has been featuring the DripTeez wine drip stoppers that are most fitting the rock n roll home.  This all came about through actual, real, human, person-to-person interaction.  No robots involved.

If you are a real person and know some products that are worthy of a rock star home, send me a human-generated message on FacebookTwitter or in the comments section of this page.  We will chat (person-to-person) and figure out if we are a good match.

Rock on!

Motorcycle wine bottle holder – boot or bike?

Rockstars and motorcycles are two things that naturally go together – just like motorcycles and guitars.  To mix up the guitar themes, add a little motorcycle chic!

This dragon skeleton motorcycle wine bottle holder reminds me (a little) of the album cover for Judas Priest’s Painkiller album.

If the whole motorcycle is too much, how about just the boots?

This motorcycle boot wine bottle holder would look great in any rock n roll (or motorcycle) bar or bar cart. As an added bonus, this boot bottle holder can also fit squared whisky or bourbon bottles.

Not to say that guitars don’t have a place in a wine bar, but that’s another post.
