The Best 7 Gifts for Podcasters to Receive
1. A Subscription to a Music License
Choosing the right sound to fit your podcast is such an important part of the process and can really set the entire tone for your show. It’s so important that podcasters use royalty-free and copyright-free music.
2. Podcast Equipment
Clear and crisp audio is fundamental for any podcaster. Some of our favorite pieces of equipment are the Rode Rodecaster Pro Podcast Production Studio (the quality of this interface is top notch and it accommodates up to four microphones), as well as the Rode Procaster Dynamic Vocal Microphone, and the Rode PodMic Cardioid Dynamic Podcasting Microphone (these mics don’t pick up the majority of ambient sound, which editors love).

3. An HD Camera
A quality camera is useful for a few different reasons. For starters, you can use it to take professional-looking promotional photos for social media. It is also helpful if a podcaster wants to upload their episodes to YouTube.
For inspiration, check out Almost 30’s YouTube channel where we upload the majority of interviews. Watching an episode has a special type of impact and can really make viewers feel further connected to you.
The Canon EOS Rebel T7 DSLR Camera is great for either of these purposes!
4. Seat back pillow
Podcasting requires a lot of time — our interviews can sometimes go on for over an hour, which means we’re sitting the whole dang time. Not to mention, our day-to-day work includes sitting at our computers, so it’s really important that we take the necessary precautions to protect our backs in order to avoid any pain and improve our posture.
Investing in a back pillow is a great gift and something your podcasting friend may not know they even need but trust us, it makes all of the difference! Amazon has a ton of great and affordable options.
We LOVE a good candle that is intention-based. There is something about ‘em that really sets the vibe… and you know us, we are all about a positive and liberating experience.
Try out the limited-edition Sakara Manifestation Candle, which has a powerful blend of 13 botanicals.
Tea is a great gift for anyone who frequently uses their voice, like teachers, singers, and yes, podcasters!
It can really soothe the vocal cords and also be super comforting and calming. Let’s be real — you can never go wrong with tea!
7. PodcastPro E-Book
Our PodcastPro E-Book is jam-packed with a ton of information. It’s an 80+ page guide with everything you need to know to launch, grow, and monetize a podcast.
The best-selling E-Book will give current and future podcasters the tools, support, and confidence to create the podcast, brand, and business of their dreams. You can grab it here!
These are perfect gifts for podcasters! We hope you found a product that resonates with you to give to your loved one. We know they will be so appreciative of your thoughtfulness and support as they continue to develop and grow their podcasts.
