11 Celebrity Instagram Accounts You Need to Follow This Holiday Season

Instagram is the gift that keeps on giving. This is especially true during the season of giving when us mere mortals get to have an inside look at our favorite celebrities celebrating the holidays. Sometimes they're super opulent and over-the-top, other times, their posts give us that "they're just like us" feeling.

Click through for the celebrities you need to follow this holiday season.

Mariah Carey

I don’t care what anyone says, Mariah Carey will always be the queen of Christmas. She does not even need to release any new music and we are still listening to her songs at all of our Christmas parties. Mimi is very well aware of this, and she will be documenting the holidays. Check out this cute pic of her Christmas shopping with her daughter. Aaaaww.

Ariana Grande

I feel like Mariah Carey would hate me for including Ariana Grande on the list, but I have to. She is my girl and she has some Christmas songs to promote this holiday season. You bet she will be Instagramming some cute things — hopefully with Big Sean. Plus, she's already featured this cute Christmas #tbt of baby Ariana.

Kris Jenner

I know Kris Jenner can be a little polarizing, but she prides herself on being a great Christmas hostess every year. If you want to see what her famous family is up to this holiday season, she is the one you should be following. You can just unfollow her after New Year’s if you’re only in it for the holiday updates.

Miley Cyrus

I have this love/hate relationship with Miley Cyrus’ Instagram. Even if you do not actually follow her, it is definitely worth checking out. She posts a lot. And within those posts there are some gems like hilarious photoshopped memes and throwback photos. Apparently she has already started getting in the Christmas spirit.

Justin Bieber

Love him or hate him, Justin Bieber is always entertaining. Is he going to be humble and grateful with his Christmas Instagram posts, or ostentatious about his holiday gifts? So far this year, things have been pretty cute with him posting a picture of himself building a snowman.

Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea is the It Girl of 2014 and that is definitely something for her to celebrate this holiday season. She even started early by posting this Instagram of a cute gingerbread house she decorated.

Oprah Winfrey

I might be in the minority by saying this, but Oprah Winfrey’s Instagram is one of her best achievements. Every post is a gem. I just love seeing Oprah getting all domestic and crafty, especially when she’s wearing her glasses. It really makes me feel like she is down-to-earth. Follow Ms. Winfrey to see what kind of food she’s cooking, what her dogs got for Christmas, and how she decorated her palatial mansion.
