A lot of the gift suggestions listed here are very practical in nature. If you’re looking for something that’s more fun and frivolous, these light-up sticks from RockStix are a delight to both use and watch, especially for younger players. They’re durable, exciting, and not too expensive—the perfect combination when you’re buying a gift for a drummer.

 

These sticks do exactly what you’d expect looking at the name: a motion-activated sensor inside the stick makes them light up whenever they strike a drum. The option linked to here has two pairs of sticks: one that lights up blue, and one that changes between 13 different colors with each strike of the drum, putting an entire rainbow at the drummer’s fingertips.

You could say that these sticks are the perfect gift for a young drummer, not just because of how fun they are to use but also because of their build. They’re made out of plastic instead of wood—and not just any plastic, either. The Lexan used in their construction is the same material that’s utilized in riot shields, so you know they’re not going to break just from hitting a drum.

The colors themselves are produced by LED bulbs. While this does mean the sticks need batteries to light up, LED bulbs use up so little power that players may never even need to swap out the battery. If they do, it’s very easy to do so.

Sonically, this material is not the ideal choice. For many professionals, the flashy appearance doesn’t make up for the sound of a true wooden stick against their drum-heads. It really depends on the type of drum and style of performance. For marching bands and V-drum players, for example, where the stick will have less of an impact on the sound quality, the plastic sticks might even be preferable to wood sticks because of their durability.

What’s the bottom line? If you’re looking for a gift for a drummer friend that’s more on the fanciful side of things, you’ll definitely get a reaction when you give them these RockStix—whether they’re a 10 year-old beginner or a 40 year-old professional.
