IT'S A JULIA ROBERTS CHRISTMAS

SWEET PRETTY WOMAN:

Julia Roberts bopped into a trendy LA boutique -- with no bodyguards or hangers-on in tow -- and spent hours buying gifts for family and pals: $80 candles, $20 silk undies, $60 studded T-shirts, $300 pashmina wraps, etc. Then the World's No. 1 Box-Office Star plunked her butt down on the carpeted floor -- and wrapped every gift herself!
