Today's Short Seems Very Pixar-ish, Even Down To The Slightly-Teary Finale

Yes, it's a bit of a one-trick pony/one-step joke. And I should (perhaps) have seen it coming. But it's sweet, all the same.

“The Present” is a graduation short from the Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany. “The Present” is based on a great little comic strip by the very talented Fabio Coala.
