    Vox Amplug headphone amp for bass can be had for under $50. Great little practice tool.

    There's lotsa stuffs. Off the top of my head:

    • Subscription to bass player mag
    • Musiciansfriend gift certificate
    • A rogue mandolin (if you have any desire). Or another cheap instrument like harmonica, recorder, etc. I just bought a mandolin and I'm lovin it.
    • If you have an ipad there are tons of ipad accesories and apps you can be gifted.
    • Strings
    • Tuner
    • Strap
    • Effects
    • Cables
    • Software
    • Books
    • Videos
    • Guitar maintenance kits
