It's never too early to celebrate the holidays. If you're planning your holiday movie-watching lineup, Danica McKellar stars in Christmas at the Drive-In, which airs on November 25, 2022. In the meantime, you can shop her holiday gift picks.

Danica advised, "Make a list, and think about what each person needs to have a happier life. Are they stressed a lot? Maybe aromatherapy oils or neck massager. Are they on a journey of self-discovery? Maybe a journal or book of inspiration. And if they have any specific interests, try typing that into Amazon to see what gifts pop up. It's a great way to get amazing gift ideas." Another great idea is checking out Danica's holiday present picks. 

Christmas at the Drive-In premieres on Friday, November 25, 2022, at 8 PM ET on Great American Family.
