Christmas is just around the corner! Your close friend loves the piano and you're wondering what to get him this year?

A piano? You love your friend, but not so much that you would remortgage your house to buy such a gift!

Sheet music? The friend in question doesn't have access to a piano, so it's not particularly useful as a gift.

A ticket for a piano performance? As he is always at the Salle Pleyel, the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées and the Salle Gaveau, you can imagine that he has already made reservations for the next season.

Running out of ideas? You could give him/her a piano lesson. It's an original and unforgettable gift.

If he likes the piano so much, maybe it's time he took it up himself, right? Maybe he's shy about taking it up as an adult. Maybe he never had a chance to play the piano as a child. Maybe you can be that extra push he's been missing by offering him piano lessons!

It's hard to think of a more rewarding gift than giving a loved one the opportunity to learn something new and challenge themselves. In our latest article, we have listed some benefits of playing the piano. This is the kind of gift that can change a life!

In fact, science has proven that experiential gifts are the most appreciated! Receiving one generates happiness and excitement that lasts much longer than receiving a material gift. When you receive a traditional gift, even if it's something valuable like an expensive necklace or a car, you get used to it. Over time, touching and finding the physical item no longer feels as new. The memory of an important experience, however, lasts a lifetime.

Your friend will certainly be looking forward to his first piano lesson. Just think of the excitement of the hours of waiting before they can make their dream come true! This experience will stay with him forever.
