Dennis Quaid tells Fox News his first big splurge on a gift for Meg Ryan.

LOS ANGELES – Dennis Quaid makes for a great Santa Claus.

Speaking on Fox News, the “Parent Trap” alum, 64, opened up about the first holiday gift that he’s ever splurged on, showing that the generous present was actually for his ex-wife Meg Ryan.

“It was a car, an old Mercedes convertible,” Quaid shared on Thursday. “It was in baby blue.”

The former couple, who fell in love as co-stars filming the movie 1988 “D. O. A.” — tied the knot in 1991 and had a son, Jack, a year later. However, the pair eventually called it quits in June 2000.

Why Quaid bought that specific car?

“They wanted to,” he explained, adding that “it was a surprise.”

This year, the Dennis Quaid and the Sharks frontman may not be gifting cars to his loved ones, but his family and friends are still going to be in for a treat – his Christmas wrapping paper will his face.

“It was very surprising [to see my face on the paper] actually,” Quaid — who is working with Esurance “Surprisingly Painless Gifting’ campaign, which shoppers a free item from the “Constancy” star collection starting on Monday — admitted with a laugh.

“It has to make you feel a little bit good, but the wallpaper in my house,” he teased.

When it comes to vacation, Quaid says he will be taking a trip to Hawaii, but on the 25th of December, he will celebrate.

“That is where I would want to be. Home by Christmas.”
