(Meredith) -- Joanna Gaines takes gift giving very seriously. Like, keeping-a-running-list-all-year seriously.

In an exclusive interview, Gaines explained her process for finding the perfect gifts for the special people in her life, and how much the stories behind the gifts mean to her.

“I like to have this list on my phone so when I’m with them, and they kind of mention, ‘Hey I saw this thing,’ I’ll write it down, and then come November, I’ll pull that list out.”
