Season of Joy | Christmas Day 2017

The season of gifting is here again! Out of 12 months in a year, I look forward to December the most. Why? Because is Christmas!!! All the retailers come out with great gift packaging and gimmicks to attract every single buyer's attention. I am one that falls for it everytime as it is so irresistable.
