    What's in the box, Carson Kressley?

    Let's face it: Gift-giving can be nerve-wracking. Will your uncle’s new life coach like this aromatherapy diffuser? What if your nephew’s step-uncle already has a theft-proof backpack?

    And then, there’s the gift-receiving. It sounds easy, sure, but what happens when all eyes in the room turn to you, scrutinizing your face for the slightest twitch of a reaction to whatever it is you might receive? You don’t want to convey the wrong emotion in such a fraught moment. You want to convey the right emotion, the one that says, "Hey — thanks."

    Life is stressful enough without worrying about your facial expression all the time. Fortunately, stylist and lifestyle expert Carson Kressley showed NBC Better some tricks for staying cool when you’re feeling the holiday heat.

    Don’t worry, Kressley says. "Anyone can do it." Check out his video guide below.
