Festive holiday home décor ideas (that make the best gifts) from actress Janel Parrish

Nicole Pajer

Janel Parrish is a self-proclaimed Christmas fanatic. “I love the spirit of happiness, being with your family, eating delicious food, telling funny stories around the fireplace and giving gifts,” the Pretty Little Liars star says.

When she decorates for the season, the actress goes all-in. “Every year, for me, the kickoff is the day after Thanksgiving. Then I go full-blown Christmas, with candles, decorations, wrapping paper and ribbons, and I start shopping for gifts,” says Parrish. “I’m full of Christmas spirit, all the way until the big day.”

In the video above, Parrish shows us her holiday must-haves to add charm to her own home — and to give as memorable gifts that enhance the abodes of her loved ones. Tune in and click on your favorite products to shop as you watch.
