If you want to make it more holiday festive, try filling the puffs with a variety of flavors and colors. Fruits, nuts. raspberries etc. all within the Holiday theme. Flavor them with Eggnog, Irish Cream, etc. You get the picture, also try for the spun sugar and hard sugar add some coloring to it and make it red.
Otherwise you can always do what qahtan suggested which is to stick with the classic recipe which you can never go wrong with!
