Podcasting has become increasingly popular over the past few years, and more people are getting involved in creating their own shows. If you know someone who is passionate about podcasting, then you may be wondering what kind of gift to get them. In this blog post, we’ll share with you a list of the best gifts for podcasters that cost a few bucks to hundreds of dollars. These are perfect for the beginner or pro podcasters like you or your friend.
Gift #1: RodeCaster Pro II ($699)
First on the list is the RodeCaster Pro II. This is a powerful audio interface kit that has become my integrated audio solution for all my production needs. It provides everything you need to make professional-quality audio recordings.
Some of the things I like about this audio interface kit are that it has firmware updates, it’s brightly colored, has less chance to overheat, sounds fantastic, and overall, it is suitable for all content creators.
One of the must-have equipment for podcasters would is headphones. And when we are talking about headphones, the first that comes to mind is the Beyerdynamic DT700 Pro X, which I absolutely love.
This pair of headphones is designed especially for content creators. It helps prevent things like microphone bleeds and echoes. Moreover, this headphone has soft ear pads that wearing them all day won’t get you earache or headache.
Beyerdynamic doesn’t only have the best headphones but also the best microphone for podcasters. The Beyerdynamic Fox microphone is the best USB microphone I’ve ever tested.
This microphone comes with a pop shield to stop any mic popping. It also has a basic desktop stand which gives you control over your mic’s positioning. Moreover, you can monitor headphones plugged into the mic. Finally, there is a high/low switch on the back that is very helpful when recording close or far away from the mic.
Gift #4: Adobe Audition License ($200)
Editing is an essential part of the podcasting process, and having the right software can make all the difference. There are many different audio editing programs available but I personally recommend Adobe Audition.
I’ve been using Adobe Audition since the days of Cool Edit Pro. Although it has free alternatives like Audacity, nothing beats this software when it comes to features, usability, and functionality.
For new podcasters especially those who have a limited budget, the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 Audio interface would be a perfect gift. It’s a well-sized device with two microphone inputs, and a volume controller, and can be connected to a computer via USB.
This audio interface is quite popular for producing clean and crips audio recordings. With this budget audio interface, you can also add extra air, sound equalization, and brightness to your voice.
Gift #6: AKG P120 Condenser Microphone ($85)
Next on our list of the best perfect gifts for podcasters is the AKG P120 microphone. This is a great condenser studio-style microphone that sits nicely on a boom arm and it sounds amazing.
Moreover, one thing that is really good about this microphone is that it’s pretty durable. This mic survived after I tested it by hammering nails with it, riding along with a bike, and setting it on fire. The best thing is that it costs less than $100 bucks.
A podcast can never be good without music. But look no further because Music Radio Creative has a store with a wide range of genres and mood music. Moreover, all of our Royalty Free Music is available to download in high-quality MP3 or Wav.
The best thing about our royalty-free music is that we offer some of the best license terms available. This means that you don’t have pay each time you play the track to any of your digital content.
Podcast intros and outros are essential to the success of your show. A good intro and outro establish the identity of your podcast, make it feel professional and polished, and can enhance the listening experience of your audience.
That said, Music Radio Creative can help you create customized intro and outro for your podcast. For only $235, you can have an intro and outro with the right song, voice, music, sound effects, and everything that you are looking for.
Gift #9: On Air Light for the Studio ($19.99)
If you are looking for something affordable, the On Air Studio Light by Paladone would be perfect. This $20 studio light can be powered by batteries or a micro USB cable.
This device has two different modes — steady light and pulsing light. Both can be used to let people know that you are recording something in your studio.
Gift #10: BusyBee Paper Planner ($15-$20)
If you are a fan of planning how your day is going to look, this Planner from BusyBee would be a perfect gift for you. This planner has a bookmark, and a nice binder, shiny on the edges, and is a great tool to keep track of your schedules and tasks for the day.
Gift #11: LaMetrick Time Wi-FI Clock ($215)
The next on the list of this ultimate gift guide is something that can enhance the look of your set and background. This is the LaMetrick Time Wi-Fi clock that you can use to display time, weather, cool and groovy effects, or even musical equalizers. Moreover, you can control it with many different apps to show your followers count, social media usernames, or anything that can make your background stand out.
Gift #12: Gift of Knowledge ($200+)
The final on our list of the best gifts for podcasters this 2023 is the gift of knowledge. If you want to level up your knowledge on how to use certain tools such as Adobe Audition, Music Radio Creative offers a few courses. Learn audio production, editing, and mixing techniques from the Adobe Certified Professional.
Finding the right present for someone can be difficult. And it can be even more tricky to find the right gift for a podcaster if you are not a podcaster yourself. From professional microphones to customized intros and outros, there are plenty of options every Podcaster would love to receive.
We hope that this 2023 ultimate gift guide can help you find the perfect gift for that podcaster that is close to your heart.
