While this 3D-animated short film by Jacob Frey isn't a Christmas movie per se, it does offer a touching storyline that centers around the act of gift giving and how such gestures of love and caring can change someone's life for the better.

Completed in 2014 and featuring some powerful elements of visual storytelling, "The Present" was the recipient of nearly 60 short-film awards. It was Frey's final project thesis to receive his degree from Germany's Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, and it took him a little over one year to complete using Maya for 3D modeling and animation, Pixar Renderman for rendering and Yeti Fur for hair and fiber effects.
With a total run time of just over four minutes, take a break from watching the clock at work to enjoy and reflect on the wonderful sentiments of this 3D animation during this Christmas season.
