If you have a music fan in your life, you can start the holiday season early by picking them up one of these scratch-off playlists—one for the Christmas season modeled on an Advent calendar and one for the eight nights of Hanukkah—from Uncommon Goods for $25 each.

The Christmas-based Advent calendar playlist looks like a vinyl record, and each day you get to scratch the record and reveal a QR code. When you scan the code, you’ll find a downloadable carol sung by an emerging artist. The Hanukkah scratch-off Playlist uses the same idea—however, instead of using a record, the design is of a lit menorah. Scratch off each flame during the eight nights of Hanukkah to discover a classic song sung by a rising singer.

The person behind these playlists, Natasha Alexandra, is a New York-based musician who wants to help up-and-coming artists reach a broader audience through her work. “It's a moment of pride to see a singer get the attention they deserve,” Alexandra said on her Uncommon Goods page.
