What is Christmas Gift? When did the New Year’s day started as a celebrating day?
Christmas was not celebrated on 25th December as it is now before 4th century.Pope Julius I settled this by officially fixing the date of 25th December, but nobody knows precisely why he selected the now famous date! the first known commercially produced Christmas Card was designed by John Callcott Horsley of London in 1843.
The early Roman calendar designated March 1 as the new year. The first time the new year was celebrated on January 1st was in Rome in 153 B.C. The new year was moved from March to January because that was the beginning of the civil year. Source New Year History
How to choose a gift?
You must know the person and their taste. You must also know the occasion. Then choosing the gift will be easy. Selection of gifts can be classified into

For many occasions people give flower bouquets as gifts. Flowers convey lots of meaning like love, affection and intimacy. But flowers with their great fragrance and beauty will not last long. They can be kept for a day or two. Those flower bouquets costs you lot of money.So when you intend a gift think of an item that is log lasting and useful. This is only my personal opinion on gifting.
