Cheap Gifts for Drummers under $10
Let's start with the low-hanging fruits every drummer should have! Here's my list of favorite cheap gifts under $10:
Stick Control for the Snare Drummer
Stick Control for the Snare Drummer is a classic and a must-have for every percussionist of any level and for beginner drummers too. It's the ideal book to help improve your "stick control" and speed up your hands & fingers and if you like: Your feet too! At the moment it's available for less than $10.
The best Promark Drumsticks for Beginners
Good drumming starts with a pair of great drumsticks.
One of the bestsellers for years is the Promark Pro Round TXPR5AW. It's ideal for beginner drummers, intermediate and professional drummers who love sticks which are made from Hickory wood. Hickory is a pretty dense and heavy wood like Oak. That makes a more durable drumstick and I love it!
Last time I looked them up they cost $9.99, and I can recommend them to anybody who likes to hit things with drumsticks.
Oropax / Cheap Ear Plugs
This great gift costs approx. between $7 and $15 and can be worth a lot more. Sometimes you might also get it for free as a giveaway.
Oropax - for example - is one of the cheapest but very efficient ear protection available. It's not perfect for musicians but better than nothing in case you are looking for instant ear protection.

This one only costs $6.99.
