Forget about gifting an iTunes card because who wants to get an MP3? There's really nothing more personal than giving your loved ones classic vinyl. At the Collect-I-Bowl Winter Record Show, you'll find a range of new and out-of-print vinyl, including jazz, blues, soul, R&B, reggae, punk, new wave, and metal. As you scour through crates and crates of imports, 12-inch, and seven-inch records while jamming to DJ Uncle Mike mixing in the background, be sure to get yourself something nice, too. Oh, and if your friend doesn't have a record player, remind them that the cover art is half the gift.
