I have been lucky, in my role as piano teacher, to receive many presents from students over the years. You can see one of my favourites in the picture below.


I love it. It’s clear that a lot of thought and time went into it, and every time I play or hear this song I think of it.

Teresa hit the sweet spot with this present – where her idea, combined with the talent and time to create it happened to be something I didn’t know I wanted, but now cherish.

And you won’t hit the sweet spot every time. Especially if you are buying/making something for lots of people. Every year or sometimes more.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t think a bit more deeply about it, or try a bit harder to get  it right.
