Christmas is the time in the year when receiving and giving presents is sweeter than ever, even than on birthdays.

The reason, probably, lies in the exalted atmosphere, in the decorations in our homes and on the streets, in the anticipation of the feast and the gathering of the family, in the memories of our childhood and the impatience with which we waited for Santa Claus. Whatever the answer – or the answers, – might be, the process of selection of Christmas presents for the important people in our lives is an experience that brings us joy and inspires us for love and happiness.

When Christmas is coming, even the very act of choosing a present and giving it is charming and mesmerising. But if you want to leave a truly lasting memory in the ones you are choosing presents for, then you should opt for something special.

What makes a special gift? The answers are as many as are the people. It could be a ticket for a desired destination or concert, a good book or a box of exquisite chocolates, a piece of precious jewellery or wristwatch, a dreamed dress or gadget – we can continue ad infinitum. Actually, the only secret for choosing a truly special gift is to know well the person who will receive it and to guess the secret desire of their heart.

If you manage to do that, you can be sure that you will make Christmas, this so very special day in the year, even more special for everyone around you. And giving love and happiness is the very essence of this feast, isn't it?

The question of what women want and the inability to answer it conclusively are as old as the world. Or at least this is what popular culture has been trying to convince us. The truth is that women have always known what they wanted.

The Christmas and New Year's holidays are the time when we are free to concentrate on fulfilling our wishes and on everything that brings us pleasure.

The summer is coming, and with it our excitement increases. Our souls crave the caress of the sun rays and the sea, the light clothes and the journey that we can finally take on. But are our body, face, skin and hair ready as well?
It is often said that a woman’s soul is а complex mystery, difficult to solve, and the moods and de- sires of ladies are changeable, vague, and sometimes deprived of logic. It is true that women are differ- ent and everyone has her own individual longings.
To give or to receive presents? Some people prefer the former, others – the latter, yet others love to do both. What unites them all is that regardless of the occasion, the tradition fills the hearts of everyone involved with joy, happiness and warmth.
Gifts are one of the best ways to say "I love you" to the people we cherish. And the best time to do it, outside of special events in life, are the Christmas and New Year's feasts.
Summer is a special season. It is the only part of the year of which we think about long before it has arrived.
No matter if the winter in question has been mild. The very thought about the coming summer inevitably begins to excite us long before the season's actual beginning. The warmth! The vacation! The planning! The long days and the short nights!
Historians say that gifts are a pillar of human civilisation.
The Christmas and New Year's celebrations in 2020 will be as never before. Unlike other years, this December we will forget about the ease with which we planned trips, meetings with friends, parties and family gatherings. But this should not discourage us.
What do we, women, need to be happy?
They say you cannot buy happiness with money. It is true, in principle... until the moment when we see the shining eyes of our beloved one when they open the carefully packaged gift for a birthday, holiday or St Valentine.
