E!: Tell us about your partnership with Scruff-A-Luvs Cutie Cuts.
L: "Puppy Love" is a new song I produced with my company KidNation in partnership with Moose Toys for kids to sing along with as they play with their Scruff-A-Luvs Cutie Cuts. Music is a proven and powerful education tool and as a dad, I know kids love singing to a good song and pick up on the message it delivers. "Puppy Love" teaches kids compassion for animals, responsibility and caring for their plush pet.
E!: What are some good gift recommendations for grade-school girls like your daughters Cai and Cadence?
L: The best gift is the gifts that give all year long and with KidNation, your kids are not only entertained throughout the year but learn valuable lessons. The perfect gift is KidNation's platform (kids ages 3-11). Also, all the KidNation gear is great for the kids.
Little Live Scruff-A-Luvs Cutie Cuts! Shave, Reveal and Style, Plush Rescue Pet
Ludacris explained, "Kids want fun toys obviously but for me, I like to find a way to drop a lesson on my daughters whenever possible. That's why this new Scruff-a-Luvs Cutie Cuts is at the top of my holiday gift list. The experience of rescuing and nurturing a young pup is an invaluable lesson in empathy. Scruff-a-Luvs Cutie Cuts are available on Amazon."
These toys are available in pink, purple, and blue.
E!: What should we buy for teenage girls and young adults, like your daughter Karma, for the holidays?
L: Getting gifts for teenagers can be tough, you can never go wrong with a good workout outfit. Anything bright like Set Active x Revolve. I've also learned teenagers can never have too many beauty products and the gift sets are always a win.
Set Active X REVOLVE Ribbed One Shoulder Sports Bra & Leggings
Ludacris chose this workout set in the color Petal, but it's also available in a pretty brown color for anyone who favors neutrals. The one-shoulder sports bra is double-lined for a worry-free workout and it's made from ribbed SCULPTFLEX fabric that is super supportive and stretchy. And, of course, you can't forget about the matching leggings.
Kosas Eye Candy Brow Gel, Mascara and Limited Edition Exclusive Eyeshadow Set
Ludacris suggested this $35 gift set (valued at $62) as a great present. This Kosas set provides everything you need to create your quick everyday eye makeup look. The kit has the Air Brow Clear + Clean Lifting Treatment Eyebrow Gel with Lamination Effect, The Big Clean Longwear Volumizing + Lash Care Mascara, and the Second Eyelight in Strobe. And, yes, these are all full-size products.
Sol de Janeiro Venus Rising Set
Ludacris picked the Sol de Janeiro Venus Rising Set as another option. This hair-loving collection of products repairs damaged hair and combats dryness and frizz. This set has a $60 value and contains shampoo, conditioner, hair treatment mask, and a mini Brazilian Bum Bum Cream.
Lalo First Bites Starter Kit
E!: What's a good gift for babies, like your daughter Chance?
L: "Anything to make the parents life easier is the perfect baby gift Lalo is great for gifts because it's all the essentials for little ones in the kitchen. The starter sets are a good gift option and they're BPA free, non-toxic, and you can toss in the dishwasher."
This set is also available in green and blue.
E! You've celebrated plenty of holidays with Eudoxie, do you have any advice on how to keep gift giving fresh and thoughtful for a spouse?
Ludacris shared his three different gift-giving routes along with product suggestions below.
Aurate Birthstone Bracelet
"Something really meaningful, like jewelry that she'll have forever and be able to pass down to our kids. Aurate has birthstone bracelets you can stack with each of our children's birthstones," Ludacris suggested.
Simplehuman Sensor Mirror Hi-fi
The actor continued, "The other route is the practical route. I love a good gadget and a perfect gift is simplehuman sensor mirror hi-fi, which links to your phone and has hi-fi speakers."
LDMA High Sculpt Brief
"If your lady is sporty and sexy, I recommend getting her LDMA underwear. It's the perfect stocking stuffer for the ladies, and something they will actually wear and love," Ludacris said.
E!: What's a good gift to bring a host/hostess for a holiday party or family get-together?

This linen apron is lightweight, sturdy, and full coverage to catch any mess that comes your way. It has an adjustable neck strap, deep front pockets to hold spices and utensils, and a hanging loop for easy storage. There are three stylish colors to choose from.
