Blake Shelton Dishes on Boozy Christmas Traditions With Miranda Lambert
Have you ever wondered what Christmas is like with country power couple Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton? The ‘Cheers, It’s Christmas’ album-maker dishes on traditions in the Lambert-Shelton household — and the No. 1 favorite involves wrapping-paper … and alcohol.
Shelton tells Extra that every year, he and his sassy wife enjoy “the actual wrapping of the presents,” adding, “That’s something that Miranda and I make a point that we do.”
“Actually, she does it and I mix her drinks while she’s doing it.” While we love to picture Shelton folding crisp corners and tying perfect bows, we definitely can picture him doling out the drinks instead!
And, going along with the theme, for a singer who seems to have it all, there’s one thing Shelton really loves finding under that tree. He says with a smirk, “Alcohol is always in high demand around my house.” But, if you don’t want to get him some of the hard stuff, random is always good. He admits that the best gift-giver on ‘The Voice’ is Christina Aguilera, and she didn’t get him alcohol for Christmas.
“She got me … a two-headed duck,” he deadpans, adding that people ask, “Where do you get a two headed duck?”
And his response? “What do you mean? The same place everybody gets it — Christina Aguilera.”
When Shelton and Lambert begin mixing drinks, wrapping gifts, and receiving strange (and loved) gifts from Aguilera, you know Christmas is right around the corner.
