There’s no lack of Christmas cheer in Heidi Klum’s home this year!

The America’s Got Talent judge, 40, finally comes clean as to why she was seen taking home six evergreen trees earlier this month.

“This year for the first time [the kids] each have their own tree in their room,” the mother of four told PEOPLE while hosting a Creativity Holiday Party at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. “That’s a lot of trees, I know. They were taking photos of us when we left the lot, and they were like, ‘Oh my gosh, they’ve got the whole forest!’ But it’s because I have so many kids!”

So what is Klum’s brood hoping to find under their trees this year?

“They don’t watch a lot of TV, so when they do they’re so mesmerized by the commercials. They love all these silly things like glowing pet pillows. I actually got them all unicycles,” said the Truly Scrumptious for Babies”R”Us designer.

She also dropped some hints on what she may be giving her beau Martin Kirsten when describing her ideal Christmas gift to give a significant other.

“It’s spending time together, like a weekend away at a cool hotel by the beach, or flying to Vegas for the weekend, so you can create a memory together,” said Klum. “Or going to the spa together. It’s fun to do that with your boyfriend.”

As for what’s on her own Christmas wish list, the Project Runway host has more of a DIY approach.

“I love arts and crafts, and I like when my kids make things for me,” she says. “I have an entire wall on the second floor of the house that’s all [their creations].”
