It’s Christmas morning and you’ve just had a phone call from a friend whose Christmas Day plans have fallen through. You’ve invited this friend to your house and they’re arriving in an hour. You’ve realised that you don’t have a present for them.

Why is the chosen gift the best one for your friend?
