Welcome to a new series from TODAY Shopping on the gifts that celebrities are giving this holiday season. We've already covered Miranda Lambert, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Gabrielle Union, Lauren Conrad and Hilary Swank!

And now, one of our favorites: the inimitable Kristen Bell. She's an actress, an outspoken activist and mom of two who is about as candid as you can get. In person, Bell is just as funny and thoughtful as you might imagine, and those same qualities are reflected in her gift guide picks. From divine granola to a shatter-proof mug, see her choices below.

Personalized Vitamins

“These vitamins are customized to your different needs and lifestyles and are great stocking stuffers"

Editor's note: We haven't actually tested these out ourselves, but we love the idea that you can take a vitamin for more fiber, better sleep, or stress relief.

Gifts that Give Back

Byta Mug: “For the on the go coffee drinker. It’s vacuum sealed to prevent spilling and also shatterproof. 1 million disposable cups end up in landfills every minute. These cups give back to ocean and forest conservation.”
