Heartwarming video shows commuters giving Christmas presents to complete strangers

Christmas is about giving, not receiving. That’s the message British TV Channel Christmas 24 wanted to spread this festive season.

To do so, the Channel set up a huge Christmas-themed phone box with a sign offering free presents in Birmingham’s Grand Central Station.

In a video shared on YouTube, people who approach the phone box can be seen receiving a call from a mystery person.


They are then distributed a present, but in a twist, are told they aren’t allowed to keep it. Instead, they are instructed to hand the gift over to a stranger in the station.

People are of course shocked to be chased down by a random stranger offering them a gift, but are soon overwhelmed by the act of kindness.

See some of the heartwarming reactions in the video below:
