Back in 2006, Brangelina welcomed daughter Shiloh into the world in Swakopmund, Namibia, and this Christmas, the busy globe-trotting family decided to make a return to the African nation for a holiday getaway.

Angelina Jolie, 35, and Brad Pitt, who turned 47 earlier this month, were spotted on Thursday, Dec. 23, doing some last-minute Christmas shopping for the kids at a mall in Windhoek, the capital of Namibia (they must not have snapped up all the gifts they needed during a December shopping spree at a Manhattan art-supply store). According to JustJared, the couple's toy purchases in Windhoek included a remote-control monster truck to be enjoyed by one -- or all, if they're good sharers! -- of the six Jolie-Pitt children.

Chatting with Ryan Seacrest recently on his radio show, Jolie revealed a hint about how the brood planned to get into the holiday spirit, saying they intended to "travel with the kids and go to a random part in the world" to celebrate, adding that they hoped to "have an adventure, because that's what we love to do."

They may have been drawn back to Namibia not only for the meaningful memories there, but for the protection from paparazzi they are reportedly ensured by authorities anytime they visit.
