PaperCity’s style contributor Nasiba Adilova has had quite the year — traveling the globe for fashion weeks, co-hosting Mario Testino at the Dallas Contemporary, chairing the First Look fete for TWO X TWO, and attending other fashionable and charitable events. Now the stylish new mama is sharing a few gifts she has her eye on this Christmas.
What is your favorite thing about the holiday season?
I absolutely love the holiday season. The smell of Christmas trees and cinnamon, the music, the decorations, the cheer and even the holiday frenzy! I actually am one of those people who enjoys the holiday rush. Rather than buying gifts months in advance, I prefer doing my shopping right before the holidays. I find it uplifting to go to stores when all the beautiful decorations are up with Michael Bublé’s Christmas album playing on the radio.
What is the quirkiest/most unique gift someone has given you?
The best gift I ever got was from my husband, a neon art piece that he gave me for Valentine’s Day.
What’s your holiday shopping M.O.?
Avoid the mall!
What are your favorite holiday traditions?
Since we are still newly married, we are creating our own Christmas traditions: dinner with family, special books we read as a family to our baby boy and watching Christmas movies on Christmas Day.
