The best present in the world

We all love a good present. The inner kid comes out and we react like most youngsters do upon finding a wrapped gift under the tree. Christmas is also a time to be together with our loved ones, and instead of the new shiny toy under the tree, some would love to simply be together with family and friends at this time of year.

In the lead up to Christmas, we’re focusing on goodwill and spreading festivity. And to kick it off, we’re asking our people what they think the best present in the world is.
