Celebrity-themed decoration puns are already one of the greatest additions to our collective holiday traditions with Wreath Witherspoon and a Chris Pine, but Star Wars: The Last Jedi star Kelly Marie Tran’s Christmas gift this year is more than worthy of becoming the next great holiday tree-dition.

It’s no secret that much of the Last Jedi cast are huge fans of fellow castmate Laura Dern, who plays Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo in the film, so two of Tran’s friends gifted her a “Laura Fern.” The Laura Fern is a small silver tree adorned with photos of Dern that sparkles when the light hits it, and Tran already has a fitting holiday tune for it.

Among the fern’s fans? Dern herself.

“Oh my gosh. Merry Christmas, everybody,” Dern commented. “This is genius and hilarious. How arrogant will I sound if I say all I want for Christmas is a…#laurafern? Especially sitting next to my #wreathwitherspoon. Ok, next Christmas.”
