Must Have Guitar Player Gifts Under $100 In 2023

Want to spend up to $100 bucks on the perfect guitar player gift?  This is the place to be!  We've got some stunning gifts for under $100.

Custom Leather Strap Header

When it comes to straps, Thalia has you covered.  We make the world's most comfortable and beautiful guitar straps out of imported Italian leather and inlayed with premium exotic wood and shell.  We have dozens of different designs available as well as custom options to make it the best gift possible!  Guitar players are raving about the quality and comfort of Thalia Straps.

What you need to know when giving a strap:

Our straps will fit any guitar, however to achieve a perfect fit we offer two different tail hole options: Standard and Oversized.  Standard holes will work on all guitars, however if your guitar player has an acoustic/electric guitar with an end-pin pickup jack, then we offer a tail piece with larger holes so that it will better fit their guitar.  How to tell if their guitar has one of these jacks?  If you look at their guitar and search for the endpin.  This would be at the very bottom of the guitar.  If the button has a hole going through it so that you can plug an instrument cable into it, then choose our Oversized Hole option.  If it doesn't have a hole going through it then you can choose standard.  If you are just not sure, then choose standard. 






Guitar Phone Case Header

Guitar players love their guitars and have a special affinity for the brands that make them.  At Thalia we took our expertise in doing guitar inlay work and expanded that into making designer mobile phone cases from the greatest brands in guitar.  Does your guitar player play a Gibson, Martin, Taylor or Guild Guitar?  Then give them the gift of their dreams that they will take with them everywhere they go. 

Our cases are made of military-grade polycarbonate and are inlaid with gorgeous exotic woods such as Hawaiian Koa, Indian Rosewood and all of the other woods used to make fine guitars.  Our pearl inlaid cases mimic the headstocks of their favorite guitars and are sure to make for an unbelievable gift.  Just find out what model phone they have and we are sure to have it.  We carry over 40 different models of phone cases.  

What guitar players are saying about our phone cases:  

"After using this case for a good bit after my purchase, this one definitely holds up for someone pretty rough on them. I wouldn’t want to take it out in the rain for fear of ruining the wood, which I’m sure is treated! It’s just a great overall case that looks amazing and fits the phone perfectly! Kudos to you guys for teaming up with Gibson on this. The inlay quality is amazing in person. The pictures do it some justice, but the product itself is flawless!"




 Magnesium Slide Header

Does your guitar player use a slide?  If they do, I can assure you that they have never used one that they will love as much as the ones that we make out of the world's lightest structural metal: magnesium.   

Our slides have an amazingly warm tone that guitar players love and they are so light that you can move around with lightning speed and precision.  Plus Thalia Slides are the most incredibly gorgeous slides ever made and include exotic wood and shell inlays like other Thalia products.

What guitar players are saying about our slides:

"I’ve tried them all over fifty years of bottleneck playing. From my first short length of copper pipe which was too soft and dragged on the strings to the neck of a wine bottle which I found clumsy and hard to manipulate. A 3/4” socket wrench was smooth but heavy, and the opening of a Robitussin bottle too small to fit my finger. This Thalia slide is a perfect size both in external circumference and internal design. It is lightweight and feels comfortable on the finger. It’s not too light to require any extra push and is smooth and polished to glide over the strings. And the inlay is beautiful to look at. Does it sound like I’m happy with this purchase? I’ll be retiring the rest of my collection and using the Thalia for my bottleneck playing from now on."


Capo Header

We made a name for ourselves as the greatest guitar capo company on earth.  A capo is a clamp that a guitar player place on the neck of the guitar to change its key.  Guitar players use them for different reasons.  Some use them to get new voicings of chords that would be impossible to play any other way, others use them so that they can play familiar chords in a different key to match theirs or a singers vocal range. 

The number one reason that guitar players love our capos is that we designed them to solve the single biggest problem that guitar players had with capos: tuning.  Other capos require you to retune when you place the capo on the neck.  But the Thalia Capo is different.  We have patented technology that allows the player to swap out a part so that they can perfectly match the curvature of their specific guitar's fingerboard.  This results in a simply superior capo experience. And of course, our capos are aesthetically more appealing that any other capo too. 

Tips for picking the perfect capo as a gift.

Many players like to match the color of the capo to the color of the tuning pegs that are found on the headstock of their guitars.  Tuning pegs are usually either gold or silver.  However, many players like the capo to be black so that it blends into the fingerboard of their guitar.   The next part is the inlay.  We offer a range of wood and shell inlays.  Some people like to match the inlays found on their guitars.  So if they have abalone inlay then a similar abalone shell inlay would be a great choice.   We also inlay our capos with inlays that mimic the fretmarkers (the dots of inlays) in the fingerboards of their guitars.  For example, we sell a complete line of capos with all of the classic fretmarkers found on Gibson, Martin, Guild and Taylor guitars.  Have a question?  Ask our customer service team for some advice.  You can chat directly on our website by clicking the chat icon in the lower right of your screen or by sending an email to

What guitar players are saying about our capos:

"Perfection at last! 
Five stars without hesitation. Every great thing I read about Thalia capos is true. I've been waiting for over 50 years for a capo that wouldn't require me to retune my guitar every time it's moved. My Martin sounds sweet capoed at any fret now. And as if that wasn't enough, it looks stunning! I'll NEVER go back to a generic capo again. Chris, your young daughter is a genius. Thank you!!!!"
