Do you want to gift someone a new record but don’t know quite what to pick?


We're here to help! Based on just a few short questions, the team here at Drift will hand-pick an album for you that we think your giftee will love and we'll send it out to them as a gift-wrapped package.

Just like visiting us at the counter here in Devon, if you can give us a few pointers to get us going, we'll use the collective experience and tastes of the Drift staff to select the perfect gift. We'll carefully wrap it up in Drift tissue paper, include your gift message and ship it directly to your giftee's door.

A thoughtful gift for the casual music fan through to the record-collecting obsessive!

Make sure to fill in the form below, to give us some good info to start with.

What is in the box?

+ One hand-picked 12" vinyl record.
+ Gift wrapped in custom DRIFT tissue paper.
+ Your gift message hand-written, on a nice card in a nice envolope.
+ We don't include any of the invoice paperwork.

Okay, fill in the form below to give us as much info as you can to work with!

Frequently asked questions

What exactly is included?

Your giftee will be sent a 12" x 12" cardboard record mailer, and if you give us a date we can write "not to be opened untill" on the outside. The package contains one album on vinyl that we hand-pick for you and wrap in cusom Drift tissue paer. We can also include a handwritten gift note for you.

What if they don't like it?

Well, we're confident that they will, but you can't please everyone all of the time! If you're anxious about us choosing, we can gladly let you know what we've picked and give you some options to work with us. If your giftee really hates the idea of what we sent, they can always return it to us (unopened, unplayed) for something else in exchange.

How about if they already have what Drift chose?

As above, we can receive the album back and exchange it for another album and you can even get them involved in choosing once they have enjoyed the excitment of a suprise in the post.

I've already seen something they might like...

Great stuff! if you're confident choosing, we can just have you purchase that album through the website and - for a small surcharge - we can gift wrap it and send it out for you.

I had Drift pick an album for my notoriously difficult-to-please neice and she has been to see the band play three times since. So a pretty good result i'd say!

I don't live in Totnes anymore but used to love asking advice at the counter. Drift picked three albums for three frineds and all of them were chuffed.
