Storyline

When Anna, an unemployed painter, is unable to make ends meet, she is hired to become a personal Christmas shopper for Marc, an uptight corporate exec. As they work together, Marc learns that Christmas giving has less to do with the amount of money spent and more to do with the importance of the gift, while Anna discovers she might find success as an artist in a way she never expected.

Another one of these bland Hallmark Christmas films with adorable, good looking leads.

Anna Parisi (Katrina Law) is an aspiring artist who is looking for that big break. We see her getting a brush off from a snooty art museum manager. She turns to her other talent which is personal shopping and develop that into a side business over the upcoming holidays.

Marc Rehnquist (Aaron O'Connell) is a workaholic advertising executive who is always on his mobile phone, he briefly met Anna at a bakery and later employs her to pick out Christmas gifts for his family and friends. At first things are difficult as Anna gets a gift for a friend of his that was not in his list but it turns out that his friend actually liked the gift. So he then gives her a free reign to get the kind of presents his friends like, she also gets Marc to connect with his family who he has been distant with and increasingly they spend more time with each other and fall for each other.

The plot develops as after a scathing business meeting Marc uses a special painting of Anna's in order for his ad campaign. She overreacts at first for some unfathomable reason even though it will giver her work some prominence.

This is an affable film at Christmas but a bit beige with not much plot. However you cannot keep your eyes of Donna Mills who plays Marc's mother. She was 75 years old when she made this movie and with all the work she has had done she does not look like anyone's mother.
