From tropical Christmas vacations to quality family time and matching pajamas, we’re ending the year with some R&R.

It’s the most wonderful week of the year, when nothing feels real and your phone and laptop can be on “do not disturb” mode—and SI Swimsuit models are taking full advantage.

Some spent quality time with their extended relatives, while others rocked the sweetest matching pajamas with their immediate family. A few even jet-setted across the country to get some much-needed vitamin D on a tropical vacation with their loved ones, while others cozied up by the fireplace (or under the mistletoe) with a significant other and called it a day.

Snow might not have been in the air everywhere, but love certainly was! Here’s a recap of some of our favorite content from current and former SI Swimsuit models this week.
