Since most users can get one Wintersday Gift per day and Snowman is a drop from it.
So if you can wait, the suppy of Snowman is unlimited.
So sell Snowman now if you have it for a good price .

Hiya! Merry Skrittmas! I noticed an error in your numbers… you have 21 Gift Skritt needed but you actually need 17 Mini Gift Skritt plus 4 mini Charitable Gift Skritt. Thank you for having this though, I didn’t know I could upgrade!

It is 4 mini gift skritt = 1 mini charitable gift skritt so 4×4 = 16 for the Munificient. Then you add in 4 more for the charitable skritt you want to keep and another for the mini gift skritt you want to keep.
