Christmas holds a different meaning for everyone and, whether we see it as a time for religious harmony, unrestrained joy and indulgence, celebration and appreciation or something entirely unique to us, there is one common element that ties people together: gift-giving.
A fun and exciting way to show love for the people around you, giving and receiving gifts on Christmas morning (or even Christmas Eve) is a tradition many of us adore. Everyone does it differently, with many of us meticulously planning throughout the year what Christmas gifts will bring the biggest smile to our loved ones faces, while the rest of us shop impulsively, relying on instinct to select a present we know they’re sure to love.
