With the arrival of November, the gift stores get stuffed with numerous types of gift items, souvenirs and cards. These are all waiting for the festive season of Christmas that is associated with the tradition of exchange of gifts among near and dear ones. As the word "Christmas" means Christ`s Mass in old English, so it implies that it is a festivity of merriment to celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Son of God.
Origin of Christmas gifts
The tradition of Christmas gifts came from the New Testament where the story of the three wise men, called Magi is stated. The story goes on like this- the three sages called Magi, visited Joseph and Mary shortly after Jesus` birth. They were guided by a shiny heavenly star and brought gifts of gold, myrrh and frankincense.
Since there were only three gifts, it is considered that there were only three sages as the actual number is not stated. From then onwards the exchange of Christmas gifts became an indispensable fact and tradition.
The Christmas time is the time to shower love and care on your loved ones. For this purpose, holiday gifts are the best ways to convey your feelings and emotions rather than weaving them in words. Select the perfect Xmas gift for your close ones and let that speak legends of your care and warmth for that special person.
It`s not at all necessary that the gift has to be an expensive one- it can be a simple token of love yet unique in its appeal. But, the most essential thing to be kept in mind while buying gifts for Christmas is that your gift must convey your holiday greeting just in the way you want it to be.
