Fantastic gift ideas for the coworker that thinks flutes are fabulous

If a flute and a saxophone got into a fight who would win? Well, the flute woodwind, of course! Haha! The flute is interesting for many reasons, and one of the most unique things is that it is a member of the woodwind family even though it is usually made from something other than wood! On any note, starting the day with a song in your heart and a joke that puts a grin on your face is so good for your mental health. Now that you are all smiles, it’s time to talk about that officemate of yours who is an aspiring flutist. We hear they’re having a birthday and have we got news for you! We have compiled a list of interesting, creative, fabulous gifts that they would be sure to love! You can feel good about your purchase as each of these flutes comes with a one-year warranty against manufacturer’s defects.

When you give someone a musical instrument, you are also giving them the gift of boosted confidence and connection to the world. Creative expression is instrumental (no pun intended!) to one’s sense of self, and has been shown to improve mood and concentration – both things that create a pleasant work environment. Would they prefer the unique look of a pink or purple flute? Perhaps the elegant look of a black and gold flute would charm them. The silver flute is a timeless classic. No matter which one you choose to gift them, they will be wowed!

Personal growth and productivity with a cello
productivity level increase.

Stimulating personal growth can bring great benefits to productivity. One of the ways to do this is by studying a musical instrument. A stringed instrument, such as a cello, is considered one of the most challenging to play, but also will stimulate great enhancement to mental focus. We may have taken this up as a child, but we may be starting out as a beginner as an adult. Either way, playing the cello will become something we can enjoy.

Electric versions of stringed instruments offer the same excellent function of the acoustic style with one major difference. Playing and practice can occur silently, so this does not disturb others. This is done through an output jack that allows connection to a headset for silent play. This will extend where we can play to any area, including our office.

When we are looking for an edge to enhance our mental focus, one great idea is to take up playing a violin. We may have had some training as a child or we may be taking up this as an adult, but this training is assured to exercise our focus and discipline, which will enhance these qualities for our job performance as well.

Before we pick a violin, we need to understand that they are available in 8 different sizes. The full size is 4/4 and they decrease to the smallest at 1/32. For the best fit, we can measure the length between our neck and the middle of our left hand palm, with our arm in the position like playing a violin. The full size (4/4) will measure 23 inches, 3/4 is 22 inches, and 1/2 is 20 inches, with the sizes continuing to reduce until the 1/32, which is 13 inches.
