This is much more different from Christmas in Korea where gift exchanges are rare except for children and between young couples. It's a surprise 25th is still a holiday despite the scarcity of Christmas spirit - yes, you just got get one day off.
You can guess what gifts are the most popular - necessities, like food, shampoo, oil, tuna cans..etc. Korean traditional goods are also highly prized like Korean beef called, Hanwoo to specially dried fish called Jo-gi.
This year, my husband received this gift from his company - a delivery of iced package of different cuts of Hanwoo. As you might know, I love a freebies! Hanwoo is also "not cheap" - where US and Australian beef is readily available and more affordable.

I'll definitely be making bulgogi and galbi with these meat for sol-nal! :)
