For some, their wishes and dreams may fit in a small box that fits easily between the other gifts. But for others, their gift is a little larger in size.

What if you surprised your loved one with the piano they have long since dreamed about?

Creating music is a gift that keeps on giving. If you buy the right piano, it’s a gift that can keep on giving for years.

But how do you know what piano to buy? Yes, there’s an art to buying a piano as a gift. Here’s how to do it right.

Who is the gift for?

Who is the gift for and how many will be influenced by this decision? Buying a piano for a spouse or your child is different than if you are buying it for a grandchild or a nephew. Start by assessing what piano is best for all involved, even asking parents for advice if it will take up space in their home.

If you choose an acoustic piano, it will provide elegance, sophistication and beauty to the home. If you choose digital, you can expand on a love of electronics, and allow the budding musician to express herself in an entirely new way. Acoustic pianos will take up more space, whether you choose a vertical or grand piano. Digital pianos may be stored when not in use. Both can be excellent ways to start the process and learn piano once and for all. Both offer unique ways to approaching the love and joy of bringing a piano into their lives.

Dealer or Private?

There are many ways to buy a piano. You can choose one from a private party you find on Craigslist. You can find one at your local big box store. Or you can select one from a reputable dealer. But what’s the difference?

Choosing one from a private party means you take whatever is given, with no options and no return. While choosing a piano from a big box store may give the receiver the option of making a return or an exchange, it only offers a very select choice. If you select from a reputable dealer, you have two distinct advantages. First, you can spend your time learning about the various options you have. You can test pianos, find the best sound for you, and choose based on ability and desires. Second, if the recipient would like to make an exchange, the option is always open. They can come in and make a selection that is better suited for their needs.

How do you wrap it up?

Making the decision may be the difficult part, But wrapping up the piano and placing it under the tree will be lots of fun. Imagine your loved one’s face when they rip off the paper and find one of their biggest dreams nestled safely underneath.
