This year for the start of the Winter Veil we get the same thing we've been getting every year, presents! Well this year there's one thing that's a bit different and that is the fact that you can make gold by simply opening your presents from Grandfather Winter, that's usually found in your faction capital.
The thing that's different this year that's making this to have the potential to be a gold maker is the change Blizzard did when they made the seasonal BoP pets to be BoE tradables. What this means is that after you've opened up your presents, to be more precise your Gaily Wrapped Present inside you will find a Snowman's Kit which's is a companion.
Tricky part about this companion is that everyone can get it by simply picking up his presents, but you have to think on a larger scale. What i mean by this is, after this event is over people that are starting new characters, or even new players that jump in the game will want their pets, and the only way to get it would be from the AH, and that's where you come in. Just so you are clear on this one thing though, don't expect any fast gold, but seeing as how it doesn't cost you a single copper to acquire get a few in stock for a later date or a summer sale.
So if you have an alt that you haven't played in a while, log on get your present, get your pet and then log out as there is no need for your alt that you don't play to not make you some coin down the road some time.
P.S. I didn't notice earlier but the Gaily Wrapped Present can contain Green Helper Box, Jingling Bell, and Red Helper Box on top of the Snowman's Kit. So this means that these pets no matter how easy to obtain will not be obtainable with only one character so you can see some sales from people wanting to have all of them.
So, like always, keep an eye out for good opportunities out there.
