Easy Ways to Personalize the Holiday

We all want our holiday celebrations to be unique and exceptional, but with a busy schedule and the demands of everyday life, it can seem like a daunting proposition. Here are our favorite low-effort ways to make your holidays memorable and distinctive.
Holiday pillows Add Custom Elements Throughout Your Home

* In the dining room dress each chair like a gift. Drape it with a slipcover, wrap the chair back with ribbon, and tie in a bow. Attach a large gift tag with a family member's name on each chair.

* In the living room baste holiday messages onto accent pillows with glitzy applique letters that spell out seasonal words or phrases. Simply remove the letters after the holiday is over.

* In the family room create a garland or collage of photos of Christmases past to drape on a mirror or hang on the wall. Put the photos on disks and share with other family members.

* Stamp tiny takeout boxes with your monogram, fill with chocolates, and leave them in a large bowl by the entry door for guests to take with them as they depart.
