Plus, what she's gifting her "RHONJ" castmates this year.
Jackie Goldschneider is making the most of her time at home this holiday season.
The “RHONJ” star told Page Six Style that while she usually spends the holidays in Miami with her husband, Evan, and their four children, Jonas, Adin, Hudson and Alexis, she’s excited to make new memories in New Jersey.
“I’m just really looking forward to relaxing and not having the pressure of any plans and not packing,” Goldschneider, 44, said.
“I’m trying to see the bright side of being home. It was a busy summer. We were working a lot, and I’m really looking forward to just getting into comfortable clothing every day and watching movies with the kids and decorating the house. Even though we’re Jewish, we decided to decorate this year with festive decor.”
The star said she brought her two younger children to HomeGoods and Pottery Barn to stock up on seasonal throw pillows, accents and more.
“We bought a Hanukkah wreath. We bought what you could call a mini Christmas tree, or ‘Hanukkah bush.’ We got lights. We got snow globes. We just got a lot of things to make the house look really festive. It was such a fun day, decorating and going shopping for that … I would love to do that every year. And I think it’s important to have a festive home right now, because we’re not leaving.”
While the outdoor “Camp Goldschneider” activities for her children may be on hold due to the colder weather, she’s still keeping them busy with bubble baths, hot chocolate and more wintry surprises.
“More movie nights would be a great tradition,” she added. “Just nights at home with the fireplace on, on the couch!”
As for gifts this year, Goldschneider is expecting a custom David Yurman ring from her husband as a combination Hanukkah and birthday present. But don’t expect her to gift her “RHONJ” co-stars any jewelry.
“I think there is nothing better than a really, really comfy hooded sweatshirt, like a pullover hoodie. So I might do the same one in a different color for everyone across the board, like from Aviator Nation … something really soft and comfy. But if I was buying just for specific castmates, it depends. Margaret [Josephs] and Melissa [Gorga] are my closest friends, so I would probably get them something a lot more special and then for the rest of the cast, you know, maybe not as special.”
