Mariah Carey saves all the Christmas gifts her children make for her.

The All I Want For Christmas hitmaker adores the festive season but insisted the love of her nine-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe – who she has with ex-husband Nick Cannon – is all she needs when it comes to presents.

However, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t love receiving gifts.

She said:

“For me, just the kids’ love is all I really need. They make me things and I save everything. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want things bought from the shop. I love that too.”

The 50-year-old star celebrates Christmas in Aspen, and she and her loved ones go through the same rituals and traditions every year.

She explained to Closer magazine:

“When I get off the plane, our drivers have ‘All I Want For Christmas…’ playing, we have hot cocoa and some butterscotch schnapps. Then we’ll go through the woods on a two-horse open sleigh.

“We do a tree in the bedroom, then I do a big tree in the living room with decorations I’ve had for years.
