Why aren’t Chaunkah presents Chukas Akum?
It was copied from Xmas, I believe.

Answer:

I don’t know if it was copied from Xmas or not, but either way it is not done in the Xmas fashion (trees, socks etc.), so that there is no Chukas HaGoy involved. Giving out presents and gifts per se is surely not forbidden.

Best wishes.
