Miranda Kerr makes note of what people want for Christmas so she can surprise them with their perfect present.

The Australian model is set to celebrate the festive day with 31 of her family members, including four-year-old son Flynn, who she has with ex-husband Orlando Bloom.

Rather than by generic gifts for them all, Miranda has made an extra effort in buying them exactly what they wish for.

“I like to give gifts that feel personal, that someone might have mentioned during the year, and then you remember and give it to them as a surprise,” she said to Vogue Australia.

“Flynn and I went to this place where you can paint pottery so he made some really great gifts for family members. He also loves to draw, so we've gotten a few drawings framed to give as gifts to people. It’s those kinds of gifts that feel really personal and thoughtful.”

As for Miranda’s own Christmas list, the brunette beauty simply hopes her loved ones are happy and that Flynn enjoys all the magic. She isn’t hoping for anything particular under the Christmas tree, admitting she finds it awkward accepting presents.

“I get kind of embarrassed if someone gives me a gift,” she giggled. “I love to give, and if someone gives me something I’m like, ‘Oh, thank you!’ It’s so kind, but at the same time, I don’t know why, I have a hard time receiving gifts, I’d rather give them.”

Soon the world will be preparing for New Year’s Eve, but Miranda hasn’t made any plans yet. In fact, she has no intention of partying her way into 2016, and will be celebrating the end of the year with Flynn.

“I’m not really into New Year’s Eve; I’m more into the day,” she explained. “I’d rather almost go to bed early and wake up and have like, ‘Oh, Happy New Year!’ Because you don’t want to wake up the next morning feeling hungover and tired and being like, ‘Happy New Year, it’s going to be horrible.’ That’s not my idea of a new year.”
