It's so much fun to wait and wait until the right moment to give a gift. Papa found that wonderful piano at a consignment shop for under 2 bucks, but we saved it for Christmas. It's got a beautiful sound for that sort of instrument and it's pre-loved (which is a plus, in my opinion). There may be a time in our son's life when a brand new item carries some special cache. Luckily we haven't reached that age, and the piano is just as exciting a gift as any. And as for the guitar, well, Santa's elves made that one.
Our musical boy has been giving us many Christmas concerts from the couch. I'm too lazy to post a video, but if you swing by our house he will serenade you.
