In the new TF2 winter update I have noticed that when some people die, they leave behind a gift. I have picked several of these gifts up, but nothing has been placed in my inventory and I have gotten no notifications except an achievement for picking up 3 of the gifts. Do these gifts have any other purpose?

There is an achievement for picking up 3 of them. Beyond that, they do nothing at all

Valve Gift Grab 2011 – TF2

Collect three gifts dropped by opponents.

    I'd be willing to bet that at some point during this winter sale, getting this achievement will earn you a "present."

    As of December 28, the achievement now completes an "objective" and earns a present. Dec 28, 2011 at 18:19
