Wow! I can’t believe Christmas has come around so fast! As is becoming a tradition for me, I have a few gift ideas for the voiceover artist in your life.
First of all – a sound machine! This is a great gift for around a tenner that will bring out the big kid in your VO and let him or her have hours of fun playing with sound effects. There’s a library of machines to choose from, including ‘classic’ sounds (drum rolls, applause and so on), ‘horror’ (you can imagine), cartoon and sci-fi (I want that one!).
Sore throats are an occupational hazard, so your VO might appreciate some honey to keep things lubricated – honey is a go-to remedy for VOs. You could get a nice collection of small jars of honey, or if you’re lucky enough to have a local beekeeper, get some honey from your area.
T-shirts are a good present, and I’ve seen some cute ones around. And these earrings are super-cute.
Or if you want to be REALLY different, what about a tattoo parlour gift certificate?
But my absolute favourite VO present this Christmas is this great microphone hat, crocheted by Lianne Berploudest as a custom piece for voiceover artist RichardHeathcote. Who wouldn’t love to find this under the tree!
Hope your Christmas is gorgeous....
