The holidays are a fun time of year, but they can also be pretty stressful. It’s a nice, festive time, and you get to spend valuable time away from work and with your family and friends. It’s also the time of year for exchanging gifts.
Which is great when you’re on the receiving end, but can be a little bit of a problem when you need to choose the perfect gift for someone else. There are, after all, only so many Christmases that you can get away with buying socks or smellies without someone getting really bored by the present.
