Zuniga helps Jay Mohr find the true meaning of Christmas in the new ABC Family movie Christmas Do-Over, but she admits in real life shes not so good at making people smile during the holidays.
Case in point: Her 4 year-old niece burst into tears when she opened a pair of pink Uggs from the actress last year.
Says Zuniga: She just started crying and saying she wanted a toy when she opened it.
Zuniga says her niece has since apologized and always comes up to her and says I love my boots Auntie.
To avoid repeating the Christmas morning mayhem, Zuniga says she was going to get her niece a toy this year but says her request for a remote spy machine was a little too advanced for Zuniga.
Instead, shes getting her niece a bigger pair of boots and making sure the kid opens the packages with toys before the ones containing clothing.
Christmas Do-Over premieres Saturday (Dec. 16).
