Christmas is a very different time when your age no longer starts with a one – or comprises entirely of a single digit. First off, you’ve known for quite some time that Santa doesn’t exist. Christmas gifts come from somewhere (and you’re now a part of that somewhere).
The nature of gifts have changed as well. Gone are the days of action figures or board games – crystal decanters, aged bottles of insert-your-favourite-spirit-here or even home appliances are now the name of the game. That said, it doesn’t mean you can’t get something for yourself (or a loved one) that hearkens back to more innocent days.
Sure, maybe you aren’t racing to the Christmas tree and ripping apart the wrapping paper with that same kind of youthful vigour, but then again, there’s no time like the present to get presents that are all about unleashing your inner child.
