Last night we tuned into The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which is quickly becoming a holiday TV tradition, right up there with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and Merry Christmas Charlie Brown. (OK, so it's not quite on par with Charlie Brown and his little tree, but you get the idea.)
In honor of the sexiest night on television, and because I'm desperate for gift ideas, I asked four of our favorite angels just what they were getting everyone for the holidays-and what they were asking for as well. Plus, because they may just be the hottest people, well, ever, I also scored some of their best winter beauty tips to steal for myself.

How are you getting into the holiday spirit?
Adriana Lima: Walking in the show always gets me in the holiday spirit actually.
Alessandra Ambrosio: I'll be decorating the house and spending extra time with my daughter.
Chanel Iman: Shopping in New York City!
Lindsay Ellingson: As soon as Thanksgiving is over I start listening to Christmas music and decorating my apartment. This is my favorite time of year, so it's pretty easy for me to get into the spirit.
What types of beauty products do you like getting as gifts?
Adriana: I love getting perfume or a gift certificate for a spa day.
Alessandra: The new Victoria's Secret Angel fragrance is something I will definitely be giving my girlfriends this year. The scent is perfect for the holidays, and the bottle is so cute! It has the iconic Angel wings on it.
Chanel: Makeup kits. Right now I love the VS Fashion Show Makeup Kit. It helps re-create the gorgeous look Tom Pecheux created at this year's show.

What kind of beauty gifts do you like giving?
Alessandra: Fragrance gift sets because they give several options so your friend can mix up their scent.
Lindsay: I love to give makeup as a gift because its something every girl needs. Anything from eye shadows, to blushes and lip glosses, and especially kits because they're perfect for events.
I'm not really sure what to get some of my girlfriends, what are you getting for yours?
Adriana: Flannel pajama sets. They're great for those nights when you just want to sleep in something soft and cozy.
Chanel: Fleece robes are a great gift, because everyone loves extra warmth during the holidays and sizing is pretty easy.
What are you asking for this year?
Adriana: I love getting lingerie.
Alessandra: This year I just want to spend time with my family. I'm excited for some time off to be with my daughter.
Chanel: Gift cards, because then I can buy items that have been on my wish list forever.

OK, spill-what is your best beauty tip for this time of year?
Lindsay: The best beauty advice I can give during the holidays is to moisturize. The cold weather can be harsh on the skin during this season, so its important to keep it hydrated.
Alessandra: I spend extra time on my hair, especially when it comes to styling-long waves look sexy no matter what time of year.
What's one product you can't live without during the winter?
Adriana: Rodin Olio Lusso [body oil]-it's incredibly hydrating for dry patches.
Lindsay: I cannot live without lip balm. I especially love the VS Pro FX Lip Balm and Scrub. My lips tend to get dry during the winter so I like to scrub off any dry skin and moisturize with the balm.
This time of year is full of parties. What are your go-to going-out beauty looks?
Adriana: A bold red lip-it's one of my favorite classic makeup looks during the holidays.
Alessandra: I love adding a shimmery body lotion to my legs when I go to parties. It gets attention and makes legs look flawless.
Chanel: A touch of gold highlighter on my cheekbones and a pale pink lip.
Lindsay: I am a huge fan of a smoky eye. It dresses up any outfit I'm wearing and makes me feel glamorous.
