President Roosevelt delighted in giving gifts, but he rarely opened his during the holidays. On several occasions, the President left his gifts unopened for days after the holidays ended. Two weeks after the end of the holidays in 1941, a staff member found the President's unopened gifts in the second-floor sitting room.
