In partnership with
Around the holidays, Domino’s editorial team is always looking for the best (and most festive) ways to give. This year, we turned to Shutterfly’s unique gifts to make our job easier and the presents so much more thoughtful. For inspiration, we looked to holiday traditions to impart a little Christmas magic on loved ones. Thanks to Shutterfly’s wide range of gifts, it was easy for everyone on our team to find something, and with the click of a button, we customized presents for family and friends alike.
To show off our gifts and share holiday stories, we got together for a fun and casual wrapping party with entertaining essentials we designed on Shutterfly: colorful melamine plates, champagne flutes etched with our favorite holiday catchphrase, and a personalized cutting board. Inspired by all things gift wrap, we turned on our favorite holiday tunes and set up our own little Santa’s workshop while we sipped bubbly and munched on a cheese plate.
When throwing a wrapping party, play with your supplies: Use wrapping paper as a runner and a bowl of ribbons as the centerpiece for an interactive craft tablescape of your Pinterest dreams. For the actual wrapping, we are loving the textural effects of cellophane and velvet ribbon, the color play of ombre papers, and the layered look of doubling up on ribbons.
And if you’re the hostess, don’t forget to have a small token of appreciation for your fellow wrappers: We each received a lovely engraved necklace with our initials.
Here, take a look at each editor’s personalized gifts.
“I’ve taken on my mom’s tradition of giving an ornament each year. The patterns I’ve used have come from travels, paired with the confetti inside. They are festive and reminiscent of the year past.” – Jessica Romm, Editor-in-Chief
“My grandmother was an amazing artist, and I wanted to give others the gift of her art. People will think of her daily with her art printed on this mug. Paired with my Hot Toddy recipe, it’s the perfect present for all my friends and family.” – Alex Redgrave, Executive Editor
“I grew up in a seasonless California, so my holidays were spent by the ocean. I wanted to give that sentiment, along with my recent watercoloring, a candle gets all the more chic with a pretty painting.” – Kate Berry, Style Director
“I wanted to carry on my grandmother’s tradition of giving a calendar each year—a way of welcoming the new year. The easel calendar I am giving includes photos from a year of travel so loved ones can share in my experience and see what I’ve been up to!” – Meghan McNeer, Visuals Director
“My family is known for its card games over the holidays. So I used a photograph my mom took to send out to everyone.” – Lily Sullivan, Associate Style Editor
“Who doesn’t love a good secret recipe for the holidays? All my loved ones will be getting biscuits and my grandmother’s famous biscuit recipe wrapped in a custom lip print tea towel.” – Kristin Limoges, Associate Lifestyle Editor
“I wanted to make sending notes and thank you’s even more personal by putting my own painting on customizable stationery. It’s a great way to keep that tradition alive—always nice to receive a handwritten thank you card!” – Elaina Sullivan, Style Editor
