‘RHONJ’ star Jennifer Fessler is gifting high heels and pot cookies this holiday season

Jennifer Fessler is riding high this holiday season. 

From gifting her own line of F.Major heels to stuffing stockings with pot cookies, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star, 55, is spoiling her loved ones as 2023 comes to a close. 

“If you have known me more than six months, you probably have a pair because I do give my F.Major heels away very easily to the people that I love,” Fessler tells Page Six Style of the shoe company she co-founded with longtime pal Shari Bernstein.

After countless prototypes, the duo landed on a 3-inch heel that looks sleek and sophisticated, but was designed with comfort in mind.

The Pump ($249) — which comes in black and beige, as well as in both patent and Nappa leather — includes a paper-thin, foam-infused insole, trading the misery of a typical stiletto for extended wearability.

Fessler — who’s donated F.Majors to such charities as Dress for Success — says her “RHONJ” castmates are all big fans of her creation, especially Rachel Fuda.

“Rachel’s been the best spokesperson,” she raves of her co-star. “Rachel’s had rheumatoid arthritis since she was a kid, so high heels are really hard for her. She loves her F.Majors because they’re so comfortable.”

In return, Fuda, 32, gifted Fessler a customized pair of F.Majors hand-painted with her initials and meaningful art — including Stars of David, as the latter is Jewish and celebrates Hanukkah — by Upcycled NYC.

“They’re really, really freaking cool. That was one of my favorite gifts ever because it was so personal. I’m too afraid to wear them because I don’t want to ruin them!” she says. “But I’m obsessed and it’s such a great gift idea that I’m going to steal from Rachel.”

Once Fessler’s loved ones slip out of their new shoes — customized or not — they can relax by the fire with the marijuana-infused goodies she plans to hand out over the holidays.

“I have a friend who makes the most amazing pot cookies and brownies and they make the best gifts,” she says.

“She brought some over for Thanksgiving and my entire family got so f—ked up. She does Ghirardelli brownies and these oatmeal cookies, so it’s easy to eat a bunch in one sitting. You have to be careful!”

When it comes to her husband, Jeff Fessler, the Bravolebrity says he’s a “simple man” who’s hard to shop for. 

“He’s not the guy who wants me to be spending a bunch of money on him. He wants Levi’s from Kohl’s,” Jennifer says of the affordable 501s ($80 $56) she plans to purchase for her spouse.

“Once every seven years, I can buy him underwear without him freaking out on me!” she jokingly adds.

Jennifer’s sister, however, was thrilled about her luxe holiday gift: a Heather Dubrow-inspired towel warmer.

“Do you remember when Heather Dubrow talked about her towel warmer and Gina [Kirschenheiter] was dying over it [on ‘The Real Housewives of Orange County’]? Ever since then, I’ve been coveting the towel warmer, so I got one for my sister,” she says of the Keenray version ($160 $115) she bought on Amazon.

“They hold about three or four big towels; you turn it on right before you get in the shower. Plus, it’s white, it’s cute and you have warm towels!”

As for last-minute presents, the “Two Jersey Js” podcast co-host says food — not infused with THC — is always a great option.

“Listen, I’m all about food. And if you’re not into the pot cookies, you still can never go wrong with some sweet treats,” she notes.

The Royal Sweet Fairy is a great company I rely on in Jersey. From Grinch cupcakes to Taylor Swift cookies, they can whip up literally anything you could ever dream of in a pinch.” 

Last on Jennifer’s holiday wish list is peace among the women of “RHONJ” — a group still divided over tensions between sisters-in-law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga, plus ex-BFFs Margaret Josephs and Jackie Goldschneider.

Jennifer — a “friend of” the cast who impressively maintains good relationships with each star — reveals she made an attempt to facilitate harmony last month. 

“I sent out a text on Thanksgiving with everybody on it in my cast just because. I did it and it actually went over very nicely!” she tells us. 

“Everybody said, ‘Happy Thanksgiving.’ So I’m taking steps here, and we can only hope things get better one day. One can try, right?”
