And that one music-loving, vinyl-spinning, Joy Division T-shirt-wearing, “High Fidelity”-quoting music nerd on your list is the hardest to shop for.

I get it. As a fellow music nerd who’s said the iconic line in “High Fidelity” — “What came first, the music or the misery?” — in conversation more than once, I know that we’re hard to shop for. Part of the thing is being at the forefront, listening to the new releases, seeing the cool shows, collecting memorabilia and reading all the stuff. We’ve pretty much heard it all at this point. What other kind of gift could you get us?

Well, I have some suggestions for the audiophile on your list, and very little of it is actually music.
