Now that the Winter Veil presents have been laid under Christmas trees throughout Azeroth, there's a high chance of getting one of the several pets which can only be obtained during this event. Or afterward, from the AH, for a premium.
As luck would have it, the Jingling Bell dropped in one of the gifts and I have added the Winter Reindeer to my collection. The pet is a very cute and also very tiny deer. Like all the other pets found randomly in these presents, it requires a Snowball to summon so make sure you stock up on those during Winter Veil if you want to be able to summon these pets during the rest of the year.
Speaking of pets, now's the chance to get your hands on the 4 that can be found inside the Gaily Wrapped Present. The pets are: Winter Reindeer, Snowman, Green Helper and Red Helper. Apparently each of these has a 25% chance to drop from the present and the present should always give you a pet.
Since you need a character of minimum 20 to open the Gaily Wrapped Present, make sure you have all your characters 20 and over open the gift. You can add the pets to your collection or sell them on the AH for a nice sum. Currently there go for 100 gold on my server but I would keep them and sell them in a few months when most of the stocks have been depleted and you can charge something like 200 gold for each.
