What do you get for the supermodel who has everything? Luckily, Gigi and Bella Hadid no longer have to solve this impossible conundrum for the purposes of a sisterly gift exchange since, as Bella recently revealed to British Vogue, the Hadid family has stopped exchanging Christmas presents in recent years.
"I don't really remember the last time I had a wish list for Christmas. It's just to be with my family, not work for a week, and ride my horses. Christmas is great anyway, eating everything and just having a good time. I'm so lucky that my life is a blessing," Bella said, adding that her family's holiday celebrations are usually pretty low-key. "I have no plans! I'm just going to be with my family, that's my only plan," she said. "For the past few years, we haven't had a big Christmas because my mom wasn't feeling well, so it's just our family. We hope for the best and it always works out."
Bella said that their family Christmases typically include plenty of homemade food, with her and older sister Gigi taking charge in the kitchen. "My sister always ends up cooking, and I'm really into baking. We watch the Food Network like nobody's business, so whatever we learn, we end up making and hoping it turns out well," said Bella, whose specialties are "lemon cardamom cake — my mom loves it — and crepes — I'm obsessed with them, so I make them for every occasion."
And although she's keeping her "fingers crossed that everything falls into place" on New Year's Eve, don't expect to see the 21-year-old hitting any parties on December 31. "I can't even think about going out anymore, it's the last thing on my list! I'm happy staying in with a good movie and a hot chocolate," she said, noting that her favorite winter-time film is Nancy Meyers' The Holiday. Sounds like a good start to 2018, during which she's resolved "to work on myself, focus on my work and what makes me happy, and do things for the world, but travel less," she said.
