Drew Barrymore and Ellen DeGeneres Get Hilariously Tipsy During Martha Stewart's Cooking Segment!

Her book "Wildflower" is a bestseller. Her beauty line, Flower, is a hit. And now, Drew Barrymore is prepping for the holidays by indulging her obsession for everything custom.

"I have a Pavlovian love of personalized things. My favorite thing in life is engraving. That's the most special thing anyone can give you, a gift that's engraved. I'm going to do a bunch of personal stuff for my kids," says the mom of daughters Olive and Frankie, with husband Will Kopelman.

To that end, she's teamed up with Shutterfly to unleash her inner artisan, creating everything from pillows to dog bowls to playing cards. The person to blame for her fetish? Producing partner and close friend (and Mrs. Jimmy Fallon) Nancy Juvonen.

"I was raised by the Nancy Juvonens of the world, who personalized everything," says Barrymore.

With the holidays coming up, her tree won't be exploding with wrapped goodness.

"I'm sort of a minimalist with gifts at Christmas and birthdays. The rest of the year, they receive special things, so I don't go nuts," she says.

As for her book, Barrymore is proud, but also humble. "I'm relieved. That's what Nancy Juvonen always said: 'When you're doing well, it's a relief.' And I say that the definition of success is employment," she says.

Preach.

It's all coming up roses for Barrymore.
