Presents make the transition between old and new more pleasant and full with hope

The habit to recapitulate in the end of the old and the beginning of the new year is inevitable in this season. After all, retrospection is our way to evaluate what we have achieved, to set new goals or to change the old ones, contemplate our mistakes and successes.

Such thoughts might leave us satisfied or probably not, if perfectionism or bad luck are involved. In all cases there is one thing that helps us to greet the challenges of the new year with more energy, optimism and belief that everything is going to be fine.


Amazingly, they have the ability to make happy not only the receiver, but also the presenter. Is there anyone unfamiliar with the joy of finding the best gift for the people they love?

What is a good gift? If we think about it, we will find that the answers equal the people. It could be a trip or a book, an item of luxury cosmetics or a piece of jewellery, an elegant or fashionable piece of clothing or accessory, a bottle of excellent wine or a dinner in a stylish restaurant, an object of art or a beauty procedure, an exotic drink.

The list with things that fit the description "a good gift" is endless. And yet there are things that unite all good presents. They are all made with love and selected with love. They are of quality, regardless of whether their function is to make us happy for years to come or to bring us the joy of ephemeral pleasure. They also fit the personality and the desires of the receiver.

Only when all of these conditions are gathered in one place we end up with the marvellous alchemy of gifts that make us smile and step with new energy in the coming year.

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.
