The statistics for how many people prefer getting gifts rather than giving them for Christmas are not available; however, those who prefer to give gifts can understand what the saying, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" really means.
Many gifts are spread during Christmas giving. Gifts of appreciation, such as gift cards and books, are given. Gifts are also given to family and close friends, such as gift cards, clothes, and pictures.
Homemade Gifts Made Easy is a major supplier of free printable Christmas cards. Greetings Island, Hello Kids, Print Free Christmas Cards and Mint Printable Christmas Cards also offer free printable Christmas cards.
There is no 'should' in the number of gifts received or given. Christmas for christians is not about gifts and presents. Or at least it should not be. Other religions do not recognise Christmas so would not receive any gifts.
