Tiffany Brooks Exchanges Personalized Ornaments With Her Family Every Year

It's a fun way to stay connected.

Tiffany Brooks has a Christmas tradition that’s perfect for anyone who won’t be able to see their family this year because of the pandemic: a personalized ornament exchange!

The HGTV Dream Home host and interior designer told People that exchanging personalized ornaments is how she stays connected with her family year after year. It’s even how she got her favorite ornament on her tree, which features her father who died a few years ago. She told the outlet: “It’s a picture of him two weeks before we found out that he had pancreatic cancer. And it was taken right before he started changing in how he looked and started losing weight. It’s this amazing image of him in a suit and a tie. My father did not dress up—he was a total jeans and tennis shoe guy—but he was wearing a suit and tie, and we were able to get this snapshot of him.”

Tiffany’s niece gave her the ornament a couple years ago, and it’s her “most prized Christmas ornament,” according to the outlet. She also mentioned that her family gets competitive with the holiday activity.

Honestly, what a cute idea! If you can’t see your family this holiday season, you can send them a personalized ornament. That way, while you may only be with each other over Zoom, they’ll think of you when you all log off and they glance at the tree.
