Carly Rae Jepsen has sold millions of copies of her Grammy-nominated smash single "Call Me Maybe" and had a successful U.S. debut album Kiss – so did the Canadian pop star blow wads of cash on gifts for herself this Christmas?
Jepsen says one of her biggest splurges this holiday season was a present for her father. "I'm getting him the same guitar that James Taylor plays," Jepsen told PEOPLE just before Christmas. "And I'm getting it engraved."

The Voice coach stepped out on Saturday with boyfriend Matthew Rutler for film and television producer Jennifer Klein's annual private holiday party in Los Angeles.
Arriving around 11:30 p.m. with a small group of friends, the duo "looked to be in the best of moods, sitting in a corner, happily sipping on Russian Standard Vodka Moscow mules while their friends sang and dance to Michael Jackson," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "They seemed to be quite in love and happy!"
Other guests included Chris Evans and girlfriend Minka Kelly, who donned "giant smiles" as they stayed close throughout the evening.
Meanwhile, Mad Men's Christina Hendricks dressed for the holiday theme in a red plaid dress and enjoyed cocktails with her husband Geoffrey Arend and friends.

There's no better way to bask in the holiday season than using the best produce of the season. Crisp apples and pomegranates are delicious on their own, but even more satisfying in a refreshing or body-warming cocktail.
Make your evening complete by whipping up a mug of Appleton Estate's Hot Buttered Cider or a glass of PAMA's Champagne Dreams, and enjoy!

Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You," can be heard everywhere during the holiday season, but you've never seen it performed like this before!

Adding to the adorable factor: a quartet of kids who pop up occasionally to sing backup.

Santa Claus is coming to town and Malin Akerman, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott, Tiffani Thiessen and Ian Ziering were on hand to welcome him at the Second Annual Santa's Secret Workshop at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood.
Akerman was "eager to learn as much from the sponsors as possible about the best baby products on the market," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She even brought a notebook!"
Gellar brought her daughter Charlotte for some quality time, which they spent making crafts and posing for photos with Santa at the event, which was presented by Bill Horn and Scout Masterson.
Spelling and McDermott made their first public appearance with all four children – Liam, Stella, Hattie and newborn Finn – but it was more like a reunion for the cast of the original 90210 with Spelling, Thiessen and Ziering all in attendance.
"Tiffani's daughter Harper saw Ian and ran over to him before sitting down to decorate a holiday photo frame at one of the craft tables," says another guest at the event, which benefitted L.A. Family Housing.
Ziering's daughter, Mia, also got hands-on at the crafts table. "Ian snapped tons of photos of his daughter. It was really cute. He's a super hands-on dad," says the guest.

To kick off the holiday season at the White House on Wednesday, First Lady Michelle Obama brought along a very special helper: Bo.
The Portuguese Water Dog helped his Mom unveil the Christmas decor that will deck the halls of the Washington, D.C., manor this season and he's even featured prominently in the estate's adornments.
In the East Garden Room, which was decorated with children in mind, a life-size replica of Bo greets visitors, and "Bo-flakes" hang from the trees. Forty such ornaments are scattered throughout the White House, and an edible Bo also stands guard in front of the gingerbread house located in the State Dining Room.
