Christmas Gift is the first EP by English recording artist Alexandra Burke. The extended play was released on 23 December 2012, and was released for Christmas Day. Burke gave the EP as a free download to her fans for Christmas. The EP only consists of two tracks.[1] The EP contains a version "Silent Night", which was hugely popular with Burke's fans as she performed this on the final of The X Factor when she was a contestant. It also features a new song, "Christmas Time", after Burke previously said she would like to see an original Christmas song take the Christmas number-one spot in the United Kingdom.[2] The EP gained positive feedback and critics said the EP was "blooming brilliant" and "amazing" as well as Burke's vocals being on point.[2] The EP follows after the release of Burke's second studio album, Heartbreak on Hold. It became her last album with RCA Records before her departure in June 2013.
