Forget the troubles and immerse yourself in the joy of Christmas presents

With Christmas coming, the question of the gifts balloons to scaring proportions. On the one hand, we don't have much time, and on the other we worry if our choice will make its recipient happy or will be met with a lukewarm "Thank you" and forgotten in some corner or wardrobe. These thoughts stress us and rob us from the most precious thing: the joy of choosing presents, the impatient awaiting for the reaction while they are being unwrapped, and the thrill before we are about to see what surprises have our relatives and friends have for us.

Christmas shopping, however, can be organised in a way that allows us to enjoy the festive mood. The solution is simple: instead of quantity, choose quality. One, but classy and carefully selected gift brings more joy than a boringly standard collection of cheap things. The unique gift says to its receiver clearly, and simply: "I love you. You are important to me." What this present will be, it is up to you and the receiver: from a good book to a travel, and from an elegant piece of jewellery to cosmetics or a luxurious aromatic candle that makes the home more cosy. Whatever you choose, what counts is to do it sincerely and without compromises with the quality. The spirit of Christmas will do the rest.
