And football's elite are no different, wanting gifts that suit their loveable personalities as they put their feet up before the Boxing Day fixtures.
But what would the likes of Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp want under their tree on December 25?
Join SunSport with a comical take on what your favourite stars might have penned in a letter to Father Christmas.
Of course, you can guess what the 'Special One' is in desperate need for… and it might just shore up that leaky back four.
Ay up lad,
Always been a big fan. Love the way you do all of your work in the air, rarely touching the ground. It’s the only way if you ask me.
Anyway, can I get these please? I seem to have lost mine…
Ta very much,
Querido Papai Noel,
I know you and I won’t play your games. I can see what you’re trying to do with your gifts and your generosity.
You think you are magical, but in reality there is no magic. Magic is fiction and football is real.
I think you are a voyeur. You like to watch other people.
SHOCKING FILLERS From tape measures to singing pens… the worst Premier League stocking fillers of 2018 that you can buy
There are some guys who, when they are at home, have a big telescope to see what happens in other families. That’s you, that is.
That said, if you do have a world class central defender in your sack I will be prepared to discuss the matter.
Dear Father Christmas
I’ve noticed that you’ve been doing the job for a while now and just wanted to say that if you’re feeling the strain I’d be more than happy to step in at short notice and save Christmas (contractual bonuses permitting).
I’m also available for keynote speeches if your elves ever need a little motivation.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
To be honest Santa, I’m a young, multi-millionaire so I’ve got pretty much I could ever need to be honest.
I could do with some longer studs though.
Take it easy…
How are you?
Just wondered if you needed any help this Christmas?
All the best,
Querido Papa Noel,
I make £15 million a year, my boss has a net worth of £17 billion and his family have £1 trillion in the bank.
Why would I need your help?
(PS – I would leave a mince pie for you but my sports nutritionists says they are dangerously high in fat and sugar).
Can I first apologise for all the things I’ve done this year? I know it doesn’t look good but sometimes I can’t help myself.
Would it be possible to get a copy of How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie.
If that’s not available I’ll take How To Lose Friends and Alienate People by Toby Young.

Hey Saint Nick!
Apart from running on the pitch – sorry – I’ve been really good this year.
Like, really good.
I only want two things.
The first is a trophy. I’ve been here over three years now and the cupboard is still bare. Not sure how I’m getting away with that to be honest but hey, that’s football.
The other is for Manchester City to go away. Can you make that happen?
Rock on Santa!
Dear Mr Claus,
How are you? You may have seen me analysing football matches on the television, openly criticising players for their lack of technique even though I was about as skillful as a hippo as a player myself.
Anyway, I’m running out of things to say for my telly appearances and wondered if I could have this please?
At this time of year I like to spare a thought for those people who rarely get the recognition for the work they do.
That’s why I’m asking you to contribute £250,000 to my pay-off when I leave the Premier League at the end of the season.
I’ll forward my bank details in due course.
Yours in sport,
