This holiday season, why not personalize it. Forget store bought goodies that will phase out within months. Surprise your loved ones with creations that will be cherished for a lifetime, with Shutterfly.

Last month, at the Shutterfly by Design: Holiday Inspiration & Creation Event hosted by design duo Robert and Courtney Novogratz, Courtney schooled us on how to make the holidays and all occasions unique. By transforming plain white walls into a dreamy, Winter Wonderland, it was hard to believe it all came from Shutterfly. Pillow throws on the chair? Shutterfly.Ornaments hanging from the tree? Shutterfly. Even the mock blazing fireplace that would fool Santa? Shutterfly.day16

Since, millions of people store and share photos, every day on Shutterfly, they’ve not only reinvented the way we look at memories, but have beat out competitors in staying ahead of the personalization game. Honestly, you’ll never return anything you purchase due to product malcontent, but if you ever do, they offer 100% happiness guaranteed or a full refund.

So this holiday season, monogram those boring serving platters, customize those blasé coffee mugs, set your phone case apart from those over-the-counter prints or transform that phone photo of the Eiffel Tower in an acrylic paint masterpiece. Whatever you choose to do, return this over commercialized season to its foundation of sharing joy and love. And if you can’t do that, at least make your gifts one of a kind.
