Holiday shopping for the one you love can be tricky when you want to nail it, but actress and holiday hosting queen Tia Mowry-Hardrict has a foolproof plan to make sure her husband, actor Cory Hardrict, has nothing but a smile on his face come Christmas morning. 

During a recent visit to the ESSENCE offices, we asked the star and Dunkin’ Donuts Bakery Series spokeswoman what was on her man’s holiday wishlist this year and she spilled all of the tea on what he can expect under the tree and how she shops smart for her friends and family. 

“It’s all about prepping ahead of time,” she shared. “Start asking your friends and your family, what is it that you want, or just listen. My husband, he’s been talking about this leather jacket that he wants and I literally screenshot it, and I’m like, ‘yes!’ I already know what to get him.”

Mowry-Hardrict reveals that one of the major keys to getting her holiday shopping done right is hitting the net for all the best deals around.

“Online shopping is great. You have more of a variety. Sometimes when you go into the stores, you only see what the selection is there and then it’s out of stock. I always like to start ahead of time and do some online shopping, and again, start early, I think that’s the key.”
