Food, family, and holidays are inextricable.
You can’t think about Thanksgiving without smelling the giant pot of mole chicken your mom and sisters make together every year, or recalling the time your uncle and grandpa argued over whose pumpkin pie was better and didn’t make up until the next day, when they drank rum-spiked eggnog and started singing Christmas carol mashups. Or the year you couldn’t make it home and your mom told you over the phone how long to roast green beans to get them just the way you like.
Imagine your next big holiday gathering. Will there be a giant turkey or a ham on your table? Tamales? Potato salad?
Whether your family makes ham or turkey, buñuelos or chocotorta for dessert, there are only two truly essential ingredients: food and family. How do you plan to capture those meals and moments?
As the holidays near, consider the best way to capture the flavors of your family. Photo books allow you to create an illustrated timeline—they record, like nothing else can, the sense of belonging you want to return to over and over again. Because you can personalize Shutterfly photo books with such ease, they make the perfect gift for displaying your favorite family memories.
This season, create a treasured heirloom by turning your photo book into a place where you preserve your family’s faces alongside traditional recipes: a photo book and a recipe collection in one! You now have the ability to customize Shutterfly photo books using eñes and accents, so fill yours with anecdotes and original recipes in Spanish, English or Spanglish. Focus your photo book on a single holiday gathering, or on a year’s worth of holidays.
At the end? A sweet collage of food and pictures that makes an unforgettable gift, and long outlasts your grandpa’s pumpkin pie. ¡Buen provecho!
