Ah, celebrities, they’re just like us. This means their holidays will also be looking quite different this year due to the pandemic. Just how 2020 weddings have had to make a major pivot, so have this season's celebrations.
So different in fact, that the Kardashians canceled their legendary, annual Christmas Eve party for the first time since 1978. And everyone should take a page out of their book. Let’s make this holiday season about keeping our loved ones safe. Whether that means taking a year off from traveling to relatives or celebrating together from a distance (masked up, of course). It’s the least we can do in order to play our part in putting an end to the spread of the pandemic.
And the Kardashians aren’t the only celebrities putting safety first for the holidays. From a safe Diwali for the Jonas' to a royally safe train tour just beginning, your favorite couples are proving we still have a lot to celebrate this year.
And if you need some inspiration, take it from these A-list couples. Here are some of our fave Hollywood (or royal) couples and how they’re safely spending the holidays together this year.
Kate Middleton, Prince William, Prince George, Prince Louis, and Princess Charlotte
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge just shared their adorable family holiday card—and it will totally give you a reason to smile! Kate, Prince Williams, and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis posed on a couple of barrels of hay at the family's country home in Norfolk. Prince Louis's big grin is what first captured our attention. And we could all use that amount of joy after this year!
Prince Charles and Camila, Duchess of Cornwall
Prince Charles and Camila, Duchess of Cornwall just released their sweet holiday card! The photo was taken by a staffer with a backdrop of a colorful garden at the prince's Scottish home.

Johnathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel
The Property Brothers star and his girlfriend New Girl and Elf actress Zooey Deschanel were joined by his brother Drew Scott and his wife Linda Phan to do some cookie making and caroling, as a part of his "Reveal Your Joy" hashtag. They all looked very festive in their holiday sweaters and Santa hats as they baked and joked around.
Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma
The actress and mom-to-be rang in Turkey day by sharing a family photo on Instagram to the backdrop of the New York City skyline. "Happy Thanksgiving!" She wrote. "1 or 2 celebrations away from getting out of 2020" While we're also looking forward to the end of 2020, we can't wait to see what other adorable gems she shares this holiday season.
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
The Little Fires Everywhere actress and her agent husband celebrated Thanksgiving with their three children, Ava, Deacon and Tennessee.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani
The recently engaged singers and The Voice judges have their own smash song to help them celebrate every year. “You Make It Feel Like Christmas,” quickly climbed the charts back in 2017, and we’ve been treated with adorable couple performances ever since. On The Voice’s special holiday celebration show, NBC gave us the gift of a throwback performance of the holiday hit, and the two judges joked that it was their favorite holiday song. In addition to their holiday hit, the couple just released another duet that's already no. 1 on the country charts, "Happy Anywhere." Although the track isn't holiday-specific, it's a fitting tune for 2020. The video the couple shot at home is sure to lift spirits this season.
Nikki Bella and Artem Chigventsev
The Total Bellas star and her Dancing With the Stars pro fiancé took their 4-month-old son Matteo to what appeared to be a vineyard for a sweet Christmas card photo shoot. The star of the shoot? Matteo’s windswept hair, of course. “Christmas card shoot,” wrote the former WWE wrestler. “Loved Teo’s hair blowing in the wind lol”
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
The EGOT winner and the supermodel celebrated Thanksgiving together with their children Luna and Miles, and Legend posted to Instagram to express his gratitude. “So so grateful for these three,” The Voice judge wrote. “Happy Thanksgiving!” We can’t wait to see more holiday moments of America’s favorite family—especially after this hilarious Chex muddy buddy ad!
Paris Hilton and Carter Reum
The hotel heiress and DJ told E! that Reum is "the one." The couple celebrated their one-year anniversary with a very special surprise trip to Bora Bora. "This is the first time in my life where I am with my equal," Paris told E! "He wants nothing from me but my love. It's such an incredible feeling to know that, and this is the first time in my life where I have let down my walls and opened my heart to someone." The two were first spotted together at the 2020 Golden Globes after-party but connected months before. They even celebrated the holidays last year in his hometown. We can't wait for more matching holiday onesies this year!
Prince William and Kate Middleton
In early December, the royal couple embarked on a 1,250-mile train tour around Britain to give back and thank first responders who have worked tirelessly during the pandemic. The Duke and Duchess made stops along the tour to meet locals and spread some holiday cheer. Every stop was kept a surprise, though, to avoid big crowds in an effort to keep the tour safe. Some of their stops included the Cardiff Castle in Wales, the Scottish Ambulance Service response centre in Edinburgh and the Holy Trinity Church of England First School in Berwick-Upon-Tweed. They even met some real life reindeer at Berwick-Upon-Tweed. So festive!
