Nina Dobrev and Shaun White just marked a major milestone in their relationship with matching Santa hats. 

The Vampire Diaries alum was featured in her new boyfriend's Dec. 26 Instagram slideshow. In a photo showing off several Polaroid snapshots, Nina and Shaun can be seen rocking red and white Santa Claus hats, as well as what looks like matching pajamas. 

The snowboarder captioned the Instagram post, "Happy holidays everyone!" 

Though Nina did not share any photos from the pair's Christmas celebrations, she did post a photo to Instagram of her and Shaun earlier in December, where the two looked extra couple-y goofing off. They also took a trip to Zion National Park in Utah, according to Shaun's Instagram of him and Nina perched on a precarious rock ledge. 

In November, Shaun brought Nina to his family's Thanksgiving dinner. 

"I'm so thankful to be surrounded by so much love!!" Shaun wrote in a Nov. 27 social media post. "Getting older and watching my family continue to grow has been incredible. Hope everyone out there had an amazing thanksgiving!"

Nina Dobrev's Best Roles

It's no surprise that Nina and Shaun love to celebrate holidays together—it's how their romance began! The two reportedly met on New Year's Eve, while celebrating with friends in Las Vegas. However, fans caught onto the Perks of Being a Wallflower actress' relationship with the Olympian in March, when they were spotted riding bikes in Malibu


Stay-at-home orders that first went into effect in March due to the coronavirus pandemic seemingly escalated the pair's relationship.

A source told E! in May, "After spending weeks together during quarantine, Nina and Shaun have made it clear to their friends that they are a serious couple."

With the first anniversary of them meeting just around the corner, these two are still going strong.
