[ Edited ]
★★ Guide

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.84.171.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Seasons
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have Father Winter over during Winterfest. Make the toddler ask for gift from Father Winter.
What happens when the bug occurs? There's the interaction to "ask for gift" or something. When I click it, nothing happens, no matter how many times I click. It never happens.
What do you expect to see? For Father Winter to give gifts to toddlers.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

Toddlers cannot receive gifts from Father Winter, no matter how many times I click the "ask for gift". It only seems to happen to toddlers. I don't know about children. It works well on young adults though.

[S] Father Winter Not Giving Gifts

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.87.40.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All to date.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Talk to Father Winter during Winterfest when he visits and try to Ask for Present
What happens when the bug occurs? My toddler has an "Ask for Present" option, my young adult sim only has an option to "Fight Father Winter for Presents". When the toddler asks for a present, no response occurs. If my young adult sim fights for a present and she wins, no present is given.
What do you expect to see? I expect gifts from Father Winter.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

OneDrive Save File - I've been able to repeat this on my save 100% of the time. Father Winter shows up shortly after the save point, my toddler has the option to Ask for Present, however nothing happens. My young adult sim does not have the Ask for Present option, however she is able to Fight for Presents. I had her fight for presents a few times, and nothing happens upon winning the fight.

This is happening on console (XBox Series S) as well. Other ages receive presents when requesting them normally. Nothing for toddlers or older Sims fighting.

Can't ask Father Winther for presents

What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All, except Carneval Streetwear Kit, Decor to the Max Kit, Werewolves, Journey to Batuu and Grim Reaper's Guitar.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? When Sims from my households are chatting with Father Winther when he appears in the house on Christmas Eve, the option to ask for a present is not there. And it doesn't matter if it's a toddler, child, teen, young adult, adult or elder.
What happens when the bug occurs? The option to ask for a present is simply not there when politely chatting with Father Winther on Christmas Eve. The only way to complete the Father Winther tradition is by being mean to him (Fight Father Winther for Presents).
What do you expect to see? I expect every member of the household to be able to politely ask for and receive a present from Father Winther, and complete this tradition whitout Fighting for Presents.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.

I'm having the same problem. None of my sims can ask for present. I have young adults, teens, and children. i've tried the shift/click reset object thing, and it doesn't correct it. Frustrating.

@Khaat This is happening to me to on Xbox series S. Lemme tell you how I fixed the issue. If he is living or moved into a household in your world he won’t present the opportunity to ask for gifts. So check and see if he is living in world. If he is then evict him from whatever household he is in. Then go edit him in manage households and make it so he can’t move into the world or die of an accident. I did this and it worked.
