Presents bring happiness. Let's make the world happier!

Recently, a 10-year-old girl's wish list to Father Christmas went viral on the Internet. It included a motley crew of gifts: the latest iPhone and some more expensive gadgets, brand sport shoes, toys, make up, jewellery, a live bunny (and some clothes for it), $4,000 cash and... an alarm clock.

Of course, we could be outraged and could fume until tomorrow over the consumerism that has taken over this young child's soul at such an early age. We could compare standards of living and could talk about the children in the developing world, we could be sarcastic and post a comment recommending the parents to buy the bunny (minus the clothes) or the alarm clock. We could remember what we wanted when we were 10 years old, wondering where the world is going.

But we can look at this formidable list from another point of view. Deep inside, we are a lot like this 10 year-old girl. We want scores of new things for Christmas.

The advantage of being over 10 years old is the knowledge that when presents are concerned, less is often more, and quality is always more important than quantity. To guess the deepest desire of our loved ones and to look for the best present for them is among the joys of the holiday season. Winter might be cold and the night might be long, but the thought for the happiness that we will give as a present warms us and inspires us for long.

Selected in a physical or Internet store, the good present is the one that matches the character and individuality of its future receiver, that will make their life nicer, more beautiful and pleasant.

Sometimes this might be travels to unknown places. Other times, items that combine the practical with the pleasant, like quality cosmetics, a nice wristwatch, a desired book, a cooking, art or language course. Some good presents, however, are good exactly because they give us an opportunity to dream, to feel beautiful and desired – an elegant piece of jewellery, an enchanting perfume, a splendid bouquet of flowers.

Whatever presents we choose, one thing is important – to choose them with an open heart and to gift them with all of our love. Because this is the only way to give happiness, the biggest present in the world.

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.
