It’s fun to work with friends, and this was what happened when Stephanie Zubiri-Crespi, Mikaela Martinez and I hosted some pals at an event sponsored by food wrap brand Glad.

Being working moms with young kids, we need all the help we can get. Stephanie, a chef, demonstrated the making of penne pasta with tomatoes.


Mikaela used Glad’s Disney snack bags to pack Hey Sugar Dough chocolate chip cookies, a nice Christmas gift to classmates and teachers.

In turn, I shared my deviled egg recipe.

The days leading to Christmas can get chaotic—but only if we allow it. As moms, we assume the responsibility to make this time of the year festive and merry for everyone. Oftentimes we need a little help to make the holidays less stressful.

Glad has released lines of cutely designed food storage and containers that can be great Christmas knickknacks on their own, too.


This season, the brand has collaborated with well-loved Disney characters whom you’ll find in an array of sandwich bags, food containers and snack bags.

Daughters will love having the Disney Princesses and the cast of “Frozen” stamped on their baon containers at recess time.

Sons will be stoked to find the “Toy Story” and “Cars” cast on their lunchbox. (I can just imagine my boys getting all excited over their favorite cartoon characters!)

These wouldn’t be Glad products without their foolproof technology. BPA-free and microwave-safe, the containers are tightly sealed to lock in the freshness. All are patented with the trustworthy Glad lock.


Now the kids don’t get all the fun. Adults can marvel over their holiday-themed ovenware, perfect for Christmas parties and for gathering our loved ones over beautiful things.

The Glad Holiday collection brings convenience and joy through their ready-to-serve ware. Peppered with unique and quirky Christmas-appropriate prints, the limited-edition collection includes four-pack barbecue trays, a roaster pan, and the signature cling wrap that are all great for storing and serving a variety of food items.

These items will surely save you from the holiday stress on multiple occasions. These are ideal for roasting chicken, baking lasagna, making vegetables, reheating, keeping leftovers in the fridge and so much more. No need to wash them up, too!

Now that your holiday décor’s been set and hung at home, it’s time to grab something equally festive wherever you go.

Glad is available at your favorite supermarkets.
