Pagans, who followed their own style of religion in the dark ages, were among the first to present gifts to the Gods, religious figures and one another during their winter festivals. These pagans welcomed the winter solstice at places like Stonehenge and similar places of worship where they paid homage to their Gods.
During these winter festivals in the cold, dark dead of the winter months, pagans would try to lift their spirits by drinking to excess and giving one another gifts, such as pottery, edible treats like fruit and nuts, and festive candles.
Christians regard the giving of gifts as originally representing the story of the three wise men paying homage to the new born Jesus.
Nowadays, gift giving has a strong focus on Christmas time and this period has evolved into an important festive occasion where gifts are exchanged usually on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. This time of year can be especially stressful with trying to decide on an appropriate gift for close and not quite so close relatives and friends.
