This will be Blake Lively's first Christmas as a married woman, and in a new video for Gucci, the Gossip Girl reveals her holiday traditions that will now be shared with husband Ryan Reynolds.

"The holidays, for me, is just the time that I'm excited to do nothing but spend time with my family," Lively, 25, said in her chat to promote Gucci's fragrance Premiere, adding that she loves to cook a big meal with her loved ones. "So much love pours out of it when you're consuming it – so that was always an iconic part of the holidays for me."

As for gifts, the actress is quite sentimental, saying the best presents are "things that last." "Things that last are memories – whether it's a photo album, something that was a meaningful moment or something you make."

An example of this, a home video Lively's sister made for her of the actress' nieces and nephews getting ready for school. "Just a day in the life. ... It was such an incredible gift because it's something I can't be there for every day."

Also, Martha Stewart magazine just shared some photos from Lively and Reynolds' wedding location in South Carolina. Check them out here.
