Reese reveals how the Wreath Witherspoon Christmas craze inspired her to design a festive dress
She's a lady with real southern charm.
And on Tuesday, Reese Witherspoon showed off her Louisiana-bred etiquette as she showed up to The Ellen DeGeneres Show with gift in hand.
The 40-year-old starlet brought Ellen, 58, a 'hot toddy kit' as she visited the comedienne to talk about holiday gifts for her family, the 'Wreath Witherspoon' dress, her new film, Sing - and why her son doesn't get it.

Get in bloom with a floral print Draper James dress like Reese
Reese Witherspooon made a glamorous appearance on the Ellen show in a dress from her very own Draper James line that we've seen her wear before.
The flattering A-line silhouette was covered in a vibrant amaryllis print. We love the elegant and timeless allure of the sleeveless knee length number that is both modest and fashion forward.
The bright color pallet mixed in with moody hues of navy allow this dress to be seasonably and sartorially versatile. Wear it all year long with flats or heels-- it makes the ideal transition piece from daytime to evening!

The Academy Award winner laughed as DeGeneres brought up Wreath Witherspoon, the trend that caught social media by storm wherein people decorated their holiday wreaths with Reese's pictures.
'I blame Mindy Kaling!' she joked, 'She did something on her show, where she had a wreath and it had a picture of my face on it!'
Ellen then showed off her show's own Wreath Witherspoon, which led to Reese revealing she designed a dress for her line, Draper James, and named it the Wreath Witherspoon Dress ($295).
For her appearance, Reese wore the Draper James Amaryllis Floral Amelia Dress ($275) that featured a V-neckline and floral print design in red, purple, and white tones.
Her blonde tresses were styled in soft curls with her fringe parted to one side, and her make up was tasteful, featuring a classic red lip.

The ladies went on to discuss the holidays, with Ellen asking Reese what her youngest wants for Christmas.
'He likes Legos, pokemon, stuff like that,' the mom-of-three recalled about 4-year-old Tennessee.
But what the adorable boy really wants is not a conventional gift.
'He wants carrots, and a plant, he wants a little pot with a seed,' the Wild actress said, 'We garden a lot.'
Reese then divulged a hilarious story of her son, who doesn't understand the mechanics of animated films just yet.

'My four-year-old saw it, but he's super confused,' she began, saying he can't wrap his head around the idea and wakes her up and says, '"Hold on, it's your voice, but you're not a pig, but your voice is coming out of a pig! There's a pig. But it's not real."'
The actress tried to explain it to her tyke so many times that she eventually resorted to telling him, 'It's just magic.'
That was when she realized that she could answer any of his questions with 'It's magic!'

Reese admitted that the singing for the film was really difficult.
'It took me 17 days to record three songs, it's hard, it's really hard!' the Golden Globe winner divulged.
In the film, Witherspoon covered Firework and Shake It Off.
She said that when she ran into the original singers and lamented how difficult it was to sing their songs, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry both said, 'Yeah, we know.'
Sing is set to hit US theaters in time for Christmas on December 21.
