This illustration is filled with hallmarks of the holiday season, including trees, stockings, candy canes, gingerbread men, and Santa Clauses. The image also features a single gift that's wrapped and ready to be opened on Christmas morning.

According to Cleanipedia, it takes the average person roughly 60 seconds to find the hidden object in the puzzle. Give yourself at least a few minutes to look for it before checking the solution in the picture below.
