Which Calvin and Hobbes book was this comic in?

Calvin and Hobbes wake up early to open their gifts and Calvin realizes he forget to get Hobbes a present. Calvin gives Hobbes a hug and Hobbes says something like "This is a gift that always fits perfectly"

Any ideas?

It's definitely a success then. It's too bad the creator didn't give the adult Calvin and Hobbes his blessing.

It's an homage. Why would he Watterson giving his blessing made a difference?

It's supposed to be depressing.
