    That's a really hard question to answer without knowing more about who you're buying for. Gear is so personal that I can't think of much I'd buy for any bass player.

    Pretty sure that's why nobody else answered your post.

    I originally thought that maybe a nice wide leather strap like a Levy would be a good recommendation. Useful, practical, affordable.

    Sorry couldn't be more help

    I know this problem. I'm in a similar situation. Got two vouchers at €50 each for a big shop. The first thought was to simply get two sets of new elixir strings - always helpful. But i'll buy strings when i need them no matter what, and these are gift vouchers so i need to get something i normally would not buy. One hundred is not enough for a U-Bass and any pedal i'd look at is a lot more expensive as well.

    So, something nice, luxury and useful:
    -A set of Lava or George L Cables if the player is using a pedalboard.
    -A supernice Strap, wide, leathery, cushioned (with security locks if normal pins are used)
    -A Luxury Softcase Gigbag

    Hi, the present is for me:)-))
    I really can't afford to spend any money at the moment but.....

    I have pedals covered really, (mostly mxr) don't need cables, sorted for straps.
    So was just looking for something cheap and cool.

    New case for my Old Epi Les Paul bass could be a great idea!
