At dinner are her parents Dennis and Patti, as well as her three sons – Apollo, seven, Zuma, 13, and Kingston, 15 – who she shares with ex Gavin Rossdale.

The California native told Entertainment Tonight that she gets her family together every year.

‘It’s a tradition. My whole family is flying out, and we haven’t been there since the wedding. So I’m really looking forward to it,” Stefani said.

They are getting married in July.

‘We have a new house there. We have a new life there,” she said. “So it’s going to be our first Thanksgiving married! Very grateful, very excited.’

And it sounds like everyone is going to work in the kitchen.

“My mom absolutely loves doing her turkey her way. Blake likes to experiment with several smaller turkeys,” she said.

“One year they loved the hot Cheetos turkey, and this year I think they’re doing it in bacon. I don’t know, the guys just talk about the different things they’re going to do.’

She added: “I know one thing is that we’ve never done mac and cheese, but we do mac and cheese. That’s the new added [food]. Every year I have the feeling that we add something new to it.’

And she’s already planning Christmas. “It feels like there’s a lot of stress in the air, and I just want my kids to have the best memories we could ever make together this Christmas, and I know we’ll be able to do that.”

Earlier this month, Shelton recalled his wedding day and told PEOPLE why Stefani’s vows meant so much to him.

“What touched me was that she talked about my… [late] brother and my father like she almost knew them,” Shelton said. “She didn’t make it look that way, but it felt that way when she talked about it. She said she wished they were there and what kind of men she thinks they must have been. Man, it hit me. I couldn’t believe how hard it hit me.’

He added: “I felt like I had gotten a little calloused at this point. I guess I am not because that absolutely killed me. It’s even hard to remember what else she said. I will never forget that feeling.’

A source also told PEOPLE recently that the couple’s romance was strong.

“Gwen and Blake are doing well. They act like newlyweds,” the source said at the time. “They have the best chemistry.”

With Christmas just around the corner, the busy couple – Shelton is currently coaching season 21 of The Voice, while Stefani is working on a new album – are looking forward to taking some time off in December and spending the season together.

“Gwen loves Christmas,” the source added. “She can’t wait to spend some time with the family.”

This comes after Shelton said he was “absolutely killed” by Stefani’s wedding vows.

The couple tied the knot in July and had been asked by their friend Carson Daly, who conducted the ceremony, to put together their own vows, and as the country singer expressed his feelings in a song, “We Can Reach the Stars,” he was overwhelmed by the very personal message of the 52-year-old star, who had spent weeks writing her speech.

Blake recalled, “She took that really hard, took it to heart, and talked about it all the time. She said, “Oh my god, I’m still working on it.”

When it came to their wedding day, the 45-year-old star understood why it had taken so long and was overcome with emotion at the way she had taken in his deceased relatives.

He added to People magazine: “What struck me was that she talked about my… [late] brother and my father as if she almost knew them.

“She didn’t make it look that way, but it sure felt that way when she talked about it. She said she wished they were there and what kind of men she thinks they must have been.

“Man, it touched me. I couldn’t believe how hard it hit me. I felt like I had gotten a little calloused by this point. I guess I am not because that absolutely killed me. It’s even hard to remember what else she said. I will never forget that feeling.’

The Voice coach admitted that his song — which he co-wrote with Craig Wiseman — shocked Gwen just as much because she knows he doesn’t write much anymore.

He said, ‘For me, writing songs is like going to the dentist. So the fact that I did that, I think it was a complete shock to her.”
