My favorite present I got my kids was an upgrade for their drum kit.

I got a conversion kit to turn one of my 16" floor toms into a bass drum (with my spare DW 5000 series pedal), and a pair of real Zildjian (sheet bronze) 10" hi-hats. With their 10" steel snare, 12" power tom as a mini "floor" tom, and mounting hardware for two cymbals (various) and one additional percussion piece (various), this is a fully functional drum kit, minus a hi-hat pedal (the 10" hats are on a fixed mount). I do have a kid-sized hi-hat stand, but it's crap. This kit is all pro-quality equipment. I'll post pics.
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.
