Emma Bunton thinks this will be her best Christmas ever.

The former Spice Girls singer is planning a traditional Christmas Day (25.12.12) at home with her boys Beau, five, and Tate, 18 months, and long-term boyfriend Jade Jones and expects her young kids to make the festive season more magical than ever.

She said: ''I have a feeling this Christmas will be my favourite as my boys are at that perfect age where everything Santa gets is really exciting! I'm very traditional when it comes to Christmas - I like being at home with my entire family, I don't think I could ever go abroad for Christmas.''

Emma admits she leaves most of the festive cooking to Jade - and her biggest contribution is helping open wine.

She explained: ''My partner Jade cooks and my brother helps him out. I assist by opening bottles of wine! I love pyjamas, so that would be wonderful [as a present]. We all love onesies in my house!''

The 36-year-old blonde revealed the highlight of her year has been reuniting with her fellow Spice Girls Geri Halliwell, Victoria Beckham, Mel B and Mel C for the London 2012 Closing Ceremony and launching musical Viva Forever!, which is based on the band's hit songs.

Emma gushed: ''We have all had a fabulous 2012 and have all hung out loads due to the Olympics and the launch of the musical.''
