MUSIC AND ART


SILENT NIGHT
Yamaha’s Silent Guitar ($699) allows guitar players — budding or established — to practice and perform in complete privacy, using headphones, while delivering the realistic sounds of an acoustic guitar. If your family musician tracks a bit more classical, the Silent Electric Violin ($1,595) lets players choose their venue — concert hall, practice room. (714) 522-9011, www.yamaha.com

DECK THE WALLS
Manhattan-based Mixed Greens’ Artful Gift Certificates ($50-$1,000) arrive in a silver box, and recipients cash them in on a wide selection of works, ranging from photography and paintings to sculpture and drawings. (866) 647-3367, www.mixedgreens.com
