Whether you’re a festive fanatic (ala Clark Griswold circa Christmas Vacation) or a bah-humbugging Scrooge, some part of you probably acknowledges the joy of giving presents. The season is hectic enough, though, so buying gifts should be easy!

Give the gift of music this holiday

CDs make easy, thoughtful presents.  And they’re easy to wrap, as shown in this hilariously helpful how-to. If you order a CD from CD Baby as a gift, we’ll even wrap it for you and mail it directly to the recipient.

Despite warnings that CDs will soon be extinct, music consumption continues to be greater than ever! “The sales figures for the first half of 2011 were up nearly 20 percent over 2010, and the CD still accounts for two out of every three album purchases.” Says Eric Weinberg, President, Entertainment for Nielsen.

The above stat is encouraging to know, especially given the fact that CD Baby has roughly 1.6 million CDs in stock (over 316,00 physical titles), so truly something for everyone on your holiday list. So what are you waiting for? Go shopping, or at least tell your friends and family to go shopping and put your CD into some stockings this year!
