A/N: This one’s a double drabble.
It was Christmas morning in the Harkness-Jones household, and certain people were far too excited about opening presents to stay in bed until a decent hour. Ianto would have liked a lie-in, but between his husband, their small daughter, and their Fluff, he was out of luck.
In pyjamas and bathrobe, he prepared coffee and put sausage rolls and mince pies in the oven to heat for their rather unconventional breakfast before joining his family in front of the tree to distribute gifts.
Everyone had a pile of presents, Santa had clearly been in a generous mood this year, and before long wrapping paper was strewn across the carpet as Jack, Meriel, and Nosy eagerly tore into their gifts.
Ianto approached unwrapping in a far more sedate manner, reading the label, then carefully peeling off bits of Sellotape, and folding each piece of wrapping paper before he examined the present inside.
“Who’s this one from?” he asked, looking at a badly wrapped bundle without a label.
“Nosy,” four-year-old Meriel said. “I had to help wrap it, but it went a bit wonky.”
Opening the parcel, Ianto took out a lovely new notebook.
“Thank you, Nosy! It’s just what I needed.”
