It's almost Christmas but most of us are probably still scrabbling around trying to order a few last minute gifts. If you're stuck for stocking fillers but don't want to opt for the usual junk, we have some ideas that might just make the music lover in your life love you that little bit more...

Not really a "stocking filler" per se, but certainly something you can send on Christmas morning. Get your favourite music lover a gift to remember in the form of a personal video message from one of their favourite artists on Cameo. Some of the more affordable options include Doug E. Fresh, Justin Hawkins, Cherie Currie, Marky Ramone, Wayne Coyne and Right Said Fred. Meanwhile, the more expensive include the likes of Akon, Chaka Khan, Gloria Gaynor, Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Alice Cooper and Shaggy. There's something to suit most budgets.
What is more seasonal than getting a new warm hat for Christmas? It's your typical stocking filler, but there's nothing typical about this Bluetooth hat from Blue Ear. Pull over your ears and you can listen to up to 8 hours of your favourite tunes - and at £17.99, it's one of the best value Bluetooth hats on the market.
You might think the days of giving out mixtapes to the special people in your life are over thanks to streaming services like Spotify and iTunes, but you can still offer a thoughtful gift in the form of a collection of downloads on a USB stick disguised as a cassette tape. You can even hand-write the tracks or sweet messages on the fold-out like the good old days.
If you know for sure what their favourite song is, or you have a song that you always associate with each other, you can get the actual soundwaves for that entire song compressed into a pattern which can then be cut into a simple keyring. It might not look like much from the outside, but the sentiment behind it will make the recipient determined never to lose their keys again.
