Gabrielle Union gets in some last minute Christmas shopping before a rainforest hike with Dwyan Wade during idyllic Hawaiian holiday


Gabrielle Union opted to spend her Christmas holiday under the Hawaiian sun with her family.

On Friday, the 49-year-old actress was pictured doing a bit of last minute shopping in the Maui surf town of Paia alongside sisters Tracy and Kelly.

Later in the day she enjoyed a pre-Christmas Eve hike with husband Dwyane Wade, 39, as they sang about starting a new family tradition in the rainforest.

The Bring It On star flashed her take on tropical garb as she strolled through town in stylish brown trousers with a lightweight button down tee. 

She showed off comfortable sneakers for a day on her feet, and slung a large white leather tote over her shoulder while carrying a variety of shopping bags in the other hand. 

For a no fuss holiday look, Union wore her hair in long braids, and looked to get in some quality time with her sisters and friend, while banging out a bit of shopping.

The family traded in a Los Angeles holiday for a bit of fun in the sun that was equal parts outdoorsy and relaxing. 

Husband of seven years, Dwyane Wade, later took to Instagram to share a glimpse at a family hike by the Twin Falls near Maui’s Hana Highway. 

In one video he addressed both Gabrielle and his followers simultaneously as the former NBA pro said: ‘It’s Christmas Eve babe, we out here, right? We are in the rainforest.’ 

‘We are setting traditions,’ he continued to say as he recorded Gabrielle as well as their family unit and friends trailing behind.

From there Union broke into song: ‘It’s a very Maui Christmas and a happy new year,’ at which point Wade chimed in as they sang in tandem. 

Later they gathered by a waterfall where they went for a swim. Union flashed her incredible abs as she stripped down to a bikini top while outstretching her arms amongst nature. 

Other snaps shared by the pair included a cute couple photo on top of a bridge, a photo of Gabrielle posing by the water with a rainbow in focus, and a sweet family portrait with their three-year-old daughter Kaavia James. 

‘Christmas Eve. New Traditions, New Adventures, More Love. The Wades,’ Union wrote of their idyllic holiday while setting intentions for the new year.
