Camila Alves Target Lifestyle Expert

What are you most excited for this holiday season?
It is my favorite time of the year! I love decorating the house, all the cooking, the giving spirit and most importantly time with family—family that we usually don't get to see on an everyday basis. 

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
The Chi Blow Dryer and Flat Iron in Gold Chrome. I am always on the go, so a small blow dryer goes a long way in my suitcase, and I love the color gold. Just to fancy things up a bit!

  • Neighbor? Holiday Skillet Cookie. It doesn’t matter how well you do or don't know your neighbors, everyone loves a freshly baked, homemade cookie. So by gifting a Holiday Skillet Cookie kit, you really can’t go wrong.
  • Secret Santa party? Ugly sweaters. Secret Santa parties are all about having fun, and what better way to spread some holiday cheer (and get in a few laughs) than with some of Target’s ugly sweaters—they’ve got a great assortment to choose from!

Do you have any memorable holiday traditions?
Usually over the holidays I used to take a trip somewhere, but now that I’m a husband and father, it’s about creating new traditions as a family. It’s about those special moments at home, and we’re definitely going to have a tree. Having a kid changes everything. 

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
The Campaign Magazine Rack and Rattan Mirrors. They feel so well traveled, like you picked them up in a flea market in Mexico and not your local Target store.

  • Neighbor? I like the idea of gifting the Inlay Tray, or the Tasseled Throw in gray or black. There’s plenty of opportunity at the holidays to use both. 
  • Secret Santa party? The Charcoal Earthenware Vase. It will layer in with any type of décor and someone will always find a use for it.  

Barbara Bermudo, Host of Univision’s Primer Impacto

What are you most excited for this holiday season?
There is nothing more exciting than going with my daughters to pick out our tree and gathering around it to add the lights and ornaments. This will be a great holiday season since Sofia is 17 months old and so curious. I can’t wait to see her with Mia and Camila enjoying this Christmas. 

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
Decorations, decorations and more decorations. I love them all! My favorites are: the Threshold White TreeThreshold Glitter Deer and the Evergreen Bottle Brush Trees.

Jacky Bracamontes, TV Host

Do you have any memorable holiday traditions?
For us at home, Christmas dinner is very important. Asking for posada—a place to stay—is also a very beautiful Mexican tradition. It’s a very important time for me and I plan to instill these traditions in my daughters so they live on.

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
I’ve never decorated for the holidays in Miami, so I’m excited to buy new things to decorate my home, starting with the Christmas tree and all of the decorations, including stockings to put treats in for my daughters. 

Which items from Target's holiday collection make the perfect gift for a…

  • Kid? There are so many holiday parties, so clothes are always a good option. Cat & Jack has cute dresses for girls or dress clothes for boys that are a great gift idea.
  • Neighbor? Food gift sets like the Archer Farms Chocolate Peppermint Snack Bites make great gifts for neighbors. They come ready to gift so you don't have to worry about putting anything together. 

Joy Cho, Designer, Blogger, Target Partner

I’m excited to take my kids to the East Coast to visit our families in Philadelphia… fingers crossed for snow! My California kids haven’t seen real snow before.

The Nate Berkus Inlay Tray—a tray is such a great piece to use not only for entertaining but also for home decor throughout the year. 

Which items from Target's holiday collection make the perfect gift for a…

  • Holiday party host/hostess? A host can always use functional, but beautiful pieces, for his or her next party like this serving set and serving bowl from my Oh Joy! line at Target.
  • Secret Santa party? Give your Secret Santa something tangible to take them away from their electronic devices for a few minutes, like the Rubik’s 3x3.

Ana Patricia Gámez, TV Host

What are you most excited for this holiday season?
This holiday season will be especially meaningful since one of my biggest dreams since moving to the United States has come true: owning my own home. Decorating my home for the holidays will have a special meaning. My husband and I are so happy to be able to give our daughter Giulietta more space to grow and to show her our traditions.

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
I’m excited to decorate every corner of my home. The Threshold Metal and Stone Bar Cart is perfect for us to put out several bottles we’ve already received as gifts. I love gold accents and décor, so the Gold Moose Figural and Gold Decorative Antler Tray from Threshold will fit nicely with many of the other items we’ll use to decorate our new home.

Emily Henderson, Target Home Style Expert

What are you most excited for this holiday season?
My daughter Elliot just turned one, so I’m really excited to see her and my son Charlie experience the holidays together again this year. We’re also looking forward to the first holiday season in our new house!

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
The Threshold Gold and White Stone Accent Table is elevated and sleek, and I love the Threshold Star String Garland—the combination of the rope and marble would look nice strung across a brick fireplace mantle, or used as a centerpiece during festive holiday gatherings.

Hillary Kerr, Co-Founder, Who What Wear

What are you most excited for this holiday season?
I’m getting married in December, so that makes this holiday season particularly memorable for me, as my fiancé and I will be decorating our home for the holidays together for the first time.

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
I love entertaining at home, so I definitely have my eye on the Threshold Gold and White Stone Round Bar Cart. It’s the perfect size, because you can tuck it into a nook and move it around so easily, plus it’s gorgeous.

  • Holiday party host/hostess? The Threshold Assorted Copper Mugs are a perfect holiday gift for a host or hostess. In addition to being very beautiful and useful, they also make lovely mini vases, so they really can do double duty!
  • Neighbor? The Nate Berkus Marble Cheese Stand is a great gift for your neighbors, because pretty much everyone likes cheese. The stand is beautifully designed and it’s one of those gifts that you’d love to get but might not splurge on for yourself.

Kyle Larson, Target Chip Ganassi Racing Team

What are you most excited for this holiday season?
This year over Christmas, I’m taking the family to Australia, where I’ll be racing sprint cars. My wife Katelyn and I travel with our son Owen almost every weekend for my NASCAR races, and have done some other trips with him, but this will definitely be our longest.

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
One thing I may have to add to my list is the Rollplay Jaguar C-X75 Electric Car. If you’ve seen some of my posts on Instagram or Twitter, Owen loves just about anything with four wheels that moves.

  • Kid? For kids, the board games would make great gifts. I know sometimes kids aren’t the best at sharing, but with the board games, you’ve got something that everyone can do together.
  • White Elephant party? The fun ornaments would make for a good white elephant gift. Those kinds of gifts can be really hard to get for people, but I think these ornaments would be good because they’re something that people could use each year. 

Zanna Roberts Rassi, Target Stylist

What are you most excited for this holiday season?
This year is the first that my two-year-old twin daughters will have an understanding of what is happening. Seeing Christmas through my children’s eyes makes it all the more magical.

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
The Who What Wear Bear Bomber worn with a sequin pencil skirt and plain white tee. The perfect dress-up-dress-down combo. Also the Ziess VR One Plus—for when I want to escape reality!

Which items from Target's holiday collection make the perfect gift for a…

  • Kid? Simon Air. The retro classic redone. Great fun and excellent exercise for the brain—yours and theirs!
  • Neighbor? Multi-Purpose Sensor Tile. I know how easy it can be to lose keys when your mind is in a million places, especially during the holidays. The Multi-Purpose Sensor Tile is one of the best gifts that can save you time and prevent unnecessary stress.

Adam Rosante, C9 Champion Brand Ambassador

Do you have any memorable holiday traditions?
Helping my family cook up a huge Italian feast on Christmas Eve. Then tucking in and watching It's a Wonderful Life, where I will inevitably proceed to cry my eyes out. When George's brother Harry raises a glass and toasts him as the richest man in town, I completely lose it. Every time. Every year. Don't judge. 

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
My wife Kate and I entertain a lot, so the Threshold Copper Beverage and Barware Tools as well as Nate Berkus' Marble Cheese Stand are definitely on my list. They're perfect for serving guests one of Kate's amazing whiskey punch recipes alongside a nice farmhouse cheddar and triple cream

  • Holiday party host/hostess? I love giving my host or hostess something that they can enjoy the next morning for breakfast. For that, the Holiday Skillet Pancake is perfect!
  • Kid? The Lego Dimensions Ghostbuster Story Pack encourages creativity and imagination without feeling like a boring educational toy. 

Chelsea Shukov, Co-Founder, Sugar Paper

What are you most excited for this holiday season?  
My co-founder Jamie and I are big fans of family traditions, so we’re most excited for time spent with family. Each year, we spend Christmas Eve as a big group and each child gets to open one present before Santa arrives.

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
I’m eyeing those Threshold Wind Chime Bells for the tree, mantle and front door.

  • Holiday party host/hostess?  The Threshold Assorted Copper Mugs are such a cute addition to any bar!
  • White Elephant party? I think it would be hysterical to put one of those funny little Troll Toys in an elegant Sugar Paper gift box for a White Elephant party.   

Petra Strand, Founder, PIXI by Petra

Do you have any memorable holiday traditions?
In Sweden, there is a tradition on Christmas day observed by the whole country. We prepare a huge smorgasbord for Christmas dinner, including rice pudding which is normally dusted with cinnamon and has a hidden almond inside. Whoever gets the almond gets a task—for example, composing a thank you rhyme for the meal. Some say if a single man or woman finds the almond, it is a sign they would find true love in the coming year.

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
Just like adding a bit of sparkle to my makeup around the holidays, I like to add a bit of sparkle to my home. Items like the Star String Garland and Silver Bell Napkin Rings from Threshold are easy to incorporate into my home décor without going over the top.

Which items from Target's holiday collection make the perfect gift for a…

  • Kid? If you happen to have a friend with a newborn, I love the Baby It’s Cold Outside Baby Blanket and Rattle. A new mom can never have enough cozy blankets for their little one.
  • Neighbor? A good bottle of wine or a quality bottle of olive oil is always a great gift for your neighbors. To wrap either of these items, you could use the Faux Fur Wine Bags or the Sugar Paper for Target Holiday Collection.

Do you have any memorable holiday traditions?
Besides family dinners and quality time with family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, we also celebrate Three Kings’ Day. Our daughters get to put grass in a shoebox and leave it in their room for the “camels” of the Three Kings to eat when they bring their gifts on Jan. 6.

Which items from the Target holiday assortment are on your wish list?  
The Sugar Paper for Target Holiday Collection in blue, to wrap Christmas presents. It’s beautiful. I love the Threshold SantaReindeer and Merry Christmas Pillows for our family room sofa.
