The end of the year is time for presents

The presents for Christmas and New Year are one of this season's best things. It is hardly so only because we receive a new item: we live in a world where one visit to the mall or a browse in a shopping site allows us to buy whatever we want; and the money will even not touch our hands. Christmas and New Year presents, however, are charged with special emotion.

It might be because of the season: although winter's coldest days are yet to come, the nights begin to get shorter and springs starts approaching. It might be that new items strengthen the feel for ending the old and beginning the new. It might be because of the accumulated childhood memories when Christmas presents caused fervent impatience, great hesitation on what to ask Santa Claus for, and the joyful thrill while unpacking what we found under the Christmas tree. It might be because now we are the ones preparing the presents for our children and loved ones. It might be because during these feasts we are with our closest people and feel loved.

It might be because all of these together.

Whatever makes Christmas and New Year's presents so special, one thing can be said with certainty. Such emotion can be borne only by gifts that were wisely chosen. Even the most expensive item becomes an unpleasant memory, if the receiver finds it unaesthetic, unpractical, unwanted.

To avoid such situations, the best solution is to not buy inconsiderately, and not to equate higher price and better gift. The good Christmas present is the one that comes from the hearth, and that takes into consideration the character, individuality, the desires of the person it is dedicated to. Regardless of whether it is a piece of elegant jewellery, a cosmetic product, a book, a trip, a dinner at an exquisite restaurant, a garment, a bottle of wine or other beverage, a concert ticket, the choice of the present should match the receiver. When children and recent paramours are not concerned, you can just ask the receiver if not to name a particular item, then at least to provide some general idea of what they want.

With the advance of online shopping, more and more of us order our Christmas presents on the Internet. Indeed, this saves time and when we buy from established merchants we know that we don't need to worry about delivery dates, warranties, return options. Some items, however, such as luxury goods, are best chosen in a physical store. Only this way you can enjoy the pleasure of browsing and choosing from the variety, to be consulted by the specialists at the shop.

Whatever way do you choose for your Christmas shopping, leave yourself enough time for it. This task is too important to ruin it with the useless stress of last-minute shopping. Thus, without significant efforts but with well thought-over actions we will find the best presents for our loved ones, and will continue the tradition of Christmas and New Year being a time of shared warmth and loved. A time of gifts.

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.
