Lauren Conrad has launched her first holiday line for U.S. retailer Kohl's. The former The Hills star teamed with company bosses for her first collection in 2009 and currently sells everything from swimwear to jewellery to maternity items. Now the stylish entrepreneur has set up a holiday shop offering gifts, ornaments and lots of festive home accessories. "I wanted everything to feel charming and sweet," Lauren tells People.
And it seems she's quite an expert when it comes to Christmas collectibles. "I actually have a giant collection of them that takes over half of our garage and my husband (William Tell) hates it," she laughs. Her favourite item from the new line is a set of felt ornaments decorated with feathers, crowns and glitter. "We did a swan, a unicorn, a lion and more and I just think they're the cutest things ever," she raves.

With the holiday party season right around the corner, Lauren has plenty of hostess gifts up for grabs too. She suggests "coasters or wine charms or a wine opener" because those ideas are "thoughtful" and pair well with the "hostessing theme".
She's just not sure if her own items will cut it when it comes to buying presents for the top two people in her life, William and five-month-old son Liam, because her husband's wish list is usually full of "expensive" items like "a watch or a guitar".
"I always really struggle," she grimaces. "And he's so good at getting me gifts. He sets a high bar!”

As for Liam, she's less worried about presents and more concerned with having him soak up all the fun of the festive period, which will include Christmas morning in matching family pyjamas, delivered by William's mum.
"She's so sweet," Lauren beams. "She drops them off ahead of time. So we all wear matching pyjamas on Christmas!"
