When it comes to presents, Christmas is truly the season of giving. Many people exchange many presents with their friends and relatives under the sparkling Xmas lights of festively decorated holiday trees all over the world. However, in the rush of the presents Christmas brings, it can be hard to choose memorable gifts that will stay in the recipients memories for years to come. If you are looking for a way to give the kinds of presents Christmas memories are made from, consider the circumstances under which you give your presents this year. Sometimes the most important part of giving presents Christmas memories are made of isn't choosing the right gift as much as it is choosing when and how to give the gift. When it comes to presents, Christmas morning or Christmas day is the traditional time to give and receive, and there is something quite magical about opening presents under the shimmering twinkle of Xmas lights on Christmas day. However, there are so many presents given on Christmas day that they sometimes blend together in the memories of their recipients and get lost in the shuffle. If you give out your presents Christmas Eve instead, you can beat the Christmas rush and make your presents stand out from the massive pile of presents Christmas morning brings.
Although Christmas day is traditionally spent in the company of one's family, or perhaps with one or two of one's closest friends in the world, Christmas Eve is usually more casual, and Christmas Eve festivities can usually include a larger circle of friends and acquaintances. Christmas Eve can be a great time to hop from one party to the next, visiting everyone in your social circle. A guest who arrives on Christmas Eve bearing an armload of gifts is a welcome part of any Christmas Eve party, so consider planning to visit some friends this year on Christmas Eve and give out your presents in the course of your travels. Gifts exchanged on Christmas Eve serve as tantalizing appetizers to the feast of presents that arrive on Christmas day, so if you give out presents on Christmas Eve you are guaranteed to have fun and whet everybody's appetites for the coming festivities.
Christmas Eve is a time of anticipation, and there is no better way to increase the suspense before Christmas day than to give out a few select presents in advance. Advent calendars are a popular testament to the powerful part that anticipation of the holiday plays in enjoyment of the Christmas season. Consider taking advantage of this dynamic to give your gifts in a memorable and unique way by handing out your presents on Christmas Eve, before the arrival of Santa Claus and his overloaded sleigh. Giving presents on Christmas Eve guarantees that your gifts will be memorable, and will stand out from the pack. This holiday season, you may want to consider taking the plunge and distributing gifts to your friends and family on Christmas Eve. Giving presents the night before Christmas could even turn out to be a great new tradition that you will want to repeat again and again in the years to come.
