Merry ~Krismas!~ Kris Jenner spends “around $500,000 just on toys” and ends up “buying like 1,000 gifts” for Christmas, an insider exclusively tells Life & Style. “She doesn’t just get things for her own kids and grandkids, but her daughter’s friends and their kids are like family to her.” 

With six grown children and 12 grandchildren, the holidays are a major undertaking for the Kardashians star, 67. “Kris starts planning for Christmas every year in July,” the insider adds.

“Everything she does for the kids she does custom. Because there are so many of them, she has her assistants start researching in the summer, reaching out to manufacturers [and] asking times on certain items.” 

While there’s no denying that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum has a taste for the finer things in life, Kris focuses on finding “really meaningful” for her loved ones, assures the source. “She wants to give back and not go crazy, but it’s hard to because she really, really loves Christmastime.” 

The Safely cofounder is aware her kids can “get anything they want on their own” thanks to their sizable bank accounts, which is why she wants to go above and beyond with thoughtful presents, like her traditional “matching [monogrammed] pajamas” for everyone,” the insider says. 

In years past, Kris has made it a point to “support small businesses and things that she’s a personal investor in,” the source notes, referring to Kylie Jenner‘s cosmetic line and Rob Kardashian‘s line of hot sauce. 

Ultimately, the entire famous family and their inner circle knows Kris is the Queen of Christmas. “She loves people telling her that she’s the best gift-giver,” the insider reveals. “To her, that’s the best compliment ever and she loves being that person for everyone.”

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the Kardashian-Jenner family has put a halt to throwing their over-the-top Christmas Eve party, instead opting for a more intimate celebration in 2020 and 2021. However, with fewer restrictions this year, it’s unclear whether or not the star-studded bash, which Kris has been hosting since 1978, will be back on.

Of course, if they do throw a party, there will be some first-time family members in attendance, including Khloé Kardashian‘s newborn son, as well as Kylie’s newborn son.
