If you’re obsessed with “Queer Eye” as much as we are, you’ve probably dreamed of getting fashion advice from Tan France. Well, this holiday season, France is sharing his tips for everything from festive fashion to gift shopping. His partnership with Klarna — a shopping platform that allows you to pay in installments — is one way France stays on top of it all. The Klarna app lets you shop from a wide range of retailers and create collections to keep things organized. France especially loves its price drop feature that sends you a notification when an item on your wishlist has a price reduction. If you’re shopping for someone who’s indecisive, France is a huge proponent of gift cards from a store or brand they adore. His pick? A gift card to Goldbelly for colleague and friend, Jonathan Van Ness.

When it comes to holiday style, France believes it’s all about embracing fun, whether it’s rocking an ugly holiday sweater or wearing something glitzy to a New Year’s party. “Go in, it’s the holidays!” he says. In fact, he only has one rule about what to avoid. “Don’t be that party pooper who’s like, I’m too good for the holidays, and I want to do what I want to do. Stop being a curmudgeon, like actually enjoy it.”

As for holiday traditions, France and his family have a unique one they’ve been doing for over ten years. “We put up our Christmas tree on Halloween, and we keep it up until Valentine’s Day,” France says. He doesn’t worry about anyone judging. “I don’t care, it brings me joy.”

France loves to listen to “Last Christmas” by Wham! and watch the “Wizard of Oz” as well as the “Sound of Music” to get into the holiday spirit. His favorite dish during the festive season is a Pavlova, a meringue-based dessert.

Beyond sharing his advice for holiday shopping, fashion and festivities, France let us in on his current product obsessions. From a travel-friendly white noise machine to a stylish pair of classic Converse sneakers, these are France’s must-have items.
