As a general recommendation remember that it is a gift and as such we will buy a good quality ukulele, maybe not the ukulele for professionals but if one that sounds good, that is of good wood or good brand and that it serves for a long time. Let's go there!

The first ukulele

Yes our partner knows absolutely nothing about ukuleles neither of music the ideal would be a simple one soprano o concert That comes with its case and tuner included. Just remember that it is a good brand so you have the confidence that the ukulele you are buying will be very useful and will not give you problems.

The design

The first thing to consider (for any gift) are the tastes of our partner as his favorite color, the style that he or she has, some object that gives him a lot of value, some special design that he likes to have in all his things. For this it is preferable to go to a store where they have great variety of ukuleles because there you will find several designs as we do in the Ukulelería. In this case I recommend a size ukulele concert o soprano. the material does not matter so much if it is his first ukulele, you can choose between wood and plastic perfectly. If what matters most is the instrument for music we go to the next step.

I'm looking for a gift for someone who plays an instrument

He already plays guitar!

This point to take into account is important since many people who are musicians are attracted to the ukulele, which is curious about its sound and the way it plays. If our partner comes from playing the guitar, bass, mandolin or something similar to the ukulele is on the other side to be able to play the ukulele since it is not so different and it will be very easy to learn. As the main point I recommend one of wood by resonance which also offers you that it will be a more pleasant sound for those who already know music (A clear and crisp sound is like an ear massage). As a second point, one of size concert. I tell you from experience, every person who comes to the store who already knows how to play guitar and grabs a soprano ukulele says: It feels very small.

Play another instrument

If our partner is a musician but hasn't played a string instrument like the guitar, but rather something like the drums, trumpet, piano etc. So in the same way one of wood is recommended, that is of concert size or soprano and with a nice design. The size soprano here if it is a good gift because it is the one that has the sweetest sound, the sound that transports us to the islands of Hawaii and well, as our partner has not touched something similar to this will not have much problem adapting to this unless have wide fingers, if you have wide fingers one concert or tenor He is the right one.

As an additional point for musicians It is highly recommended that the ukulele be electroacoustic since this can be connected to an amplifier and will be very useful in your presentations and concerts.

He already plays the ukulele!

In case our partner I already played the ukulele but I yearn to have another Well, you have to pamper yourself in the best way. First know what ukulele is and give it the size that follows, for example: If our partner already has a soprano size a good gift would be a concert. If you already have a concert, the best option would be to give him a tenor, etc.

Now, if what matters is not the size, go to the ukulele store and search among the "special" ukuleles such as those of 8 strings, the one with resonator, the banjolele, the one of the rarest wood. There really are so many options in ukuleles of this type, whatever you choose you will love it.

Lifestyle

This is something you don't have to consider much, all ukuleles as long as they have a holster and tuner everything is fine. The ukulele is known to be easy to transport and be as versatile as the guitar.

In case your boyfriend or girlfriend is a surfer, save lives, swim teacher, camper, live in a very humid climate or he simply loves beach life and water, a ukulele Waterman It is the best option you will love.

Conclusion

While still with several points to take into account just stay with the most convenient. If you can add it the ukulele design that you already chose would be much better. But ... it's pure aesthetic, you don't have to worry. Remember that it is a gift and that person will not know what it will be so have full confidence that he will like the ukulele you have chosen. Remember that every instrument needs a cover so don't forget to bring one too.

If you have the possibility of visit the store You can ask the seller all your questions, he can advise you and as an extra they should check the instrument so you can check that everything is perfect.
