Every year, Ellen DeGeneres dons her Santa hat and celebrates the season of giving with “12 Days of Giveaways,” which is very similar to Oprah’s “Favorite Things.” However, Ellen’s version stretches out for twelve whole days. On Dec. 18, beautiful and talented Julia Roberts helped Ellen DeGeneres give away even more fantastic gifts on day ten, which totaled $3,500 in value on Wednesday. Concerning her desire to make others happy during the holiday season, Ellen told the “LA Times:

With Christmas, as you get older, it’s about the joy you get from giving and seeing the reaction of the other person.

Roberts, recently nabbed a Golden Globe nomination for her role in “August: Osage County,” which also stars Meryl Streep. It opens nationwide in theaters on Dec. 27. E! Online posted on Dec. 17:

As dark as the movie might be, there are comic and even sweet moments throughout the film.

Julia Roberts, who co-hosted the entire hour with Ellen, showed a much lighter side by making holiday crafts with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Martha Stewart. When Dreyfus couldn’t get the hang of it, she drove a huge nail through her hand. This was immediately followed by “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” music and an appearance by Slothy the Snowman, Ellen’s “12 Days of Giveaways” mascot for 2013. Of course, the entire audience jumped up in unison and hooted shouts of joy.
