Think about what I said again and then look at what you just said again. I'm inclined to go with not getting somebody anything if I don't know what to get them - a gift is supposed to be like this special thing, isn't it? That's why he's asking. A gift card to a store that has something along the lines of music stuff is like saying "I haven't figured it out specifically, but this place might have something you'd like musically." Giving cash is something I do to the guys who mow my lawn, or the guy who delivers the pizza.
