As the flurry of holiday season winds down, Neil Patrick Harris is telling you to give your kids a cost-efficient gift: watching him host the Oscars. The host advertises, well, himself, in these new Christmas-themed Oscars promos, as an alternative gift this holiday season.

“Instead of traditional presents, give the gift of simply telling them to watch me host the Oscars,” Harris says.

Watch Harris above—and try not to think of that glorious Gone Girl scene.


The Oscars air live Sunday, Feb 22 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
