Tom kupił sobie pod choinkę nową gitarę.

Where is the prepostion ‘pod’ (under) in this translation?

“Pod choinkę” is the most common way to say “for Christmas” (about Christmas presents) in Polish. Literally, it can be translated as “under the Christmas tree”.


‘‘Pod choinkę’’ = Pod & Acc in this instance, which suggests motion ‘’(putting/placing) under the Christmas tree’’.
