Buying a guitar for a Christmas present is not as easy as you might think. With the wide variety of options out there, where to even begin? Just some of the things you'll have to consider are if you should get an acoustic guitar or electric and what style to get.

To make your gift-giving conundrum a little bit easier, we have selected our top ten favorite guitars that are the perfect gift for the guitarist (or aspiring guitarist!) in your life.

1. Rogue RA-090

Best for: New players

This mahogany guitar is an excellent introductory acoustic instrument and is affordably priced. If you are buying for a new player or a young aspiring musician, this is the perfect instrument because even though it is cheaper, the tone and projection are still powerful.

The guitar has a whitewood body, which allows it to have more mid-range punch. Thanks to the nato neck, the Rogue guitar has plenty of sustain without sacrificing tone. The fretboard is easy for novice fingers to move up and down. This Rogue RA-090 guitar will certainly get the job done for beginners.

2. Orangewood Victoria Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar

Best for: Beginners

Orangewood was started as a way to make guitar shopping affordable and accessible again. Each guitar is made in Los Angeles and is set up before it is delivered to you. This way, the guitar can be played as soon as it is opened up on Christmas Day.

This guitar is a slightly small version of other Grand Concert guitars, making it the perfect option for players with smaller hands. The smaller size makes it easier for them to reach all the frets.

When you purchase an Orangewood guitar, you are also helping a good cause. For every 10 guitars sold, the company donates one ukulele to support music education. 

It also comes with a padded gig bag, making the Victoria Grand Concert Acoustic Guitar the perfect gift to give on Christmas.
