Fantastic family gift ideas to buy

 

Sometimes there are events where you want to buy a whole family a gift, whether it be Christmas, or as a thank you for having you to stay. 

The trick is to get something that each member of the family will enjoy or use – and that can be hard to say the least!

As such, I’ve put together my top 9 family gifts that I have used, or am thinking of using, over the years – in the hope that they will inspire you to try something different.

I hope they help!

WHAT TO THINK ABOUT WHEN BUYING A GIFT

When looking for a family gift – you want to ask a few key things – things that are relevant whether buying a gift for one person or lots – and I wrote a post on this a while ago to help – just CLICK HERE to read this, and I’ll see you in a minute….

Welcome back!

Ready to get started?, let’s get on with it then…

Family gifts - ideas set 1

Where to buy (**)  1 / 2 / 3 

 

#1  – ESCAPE ROOM

My family have all done this before and it’s a fantastic way to spend some family time. The basic idea is that you all get locked in a room that has lots of clues and puzzles to solve – and you have a time limit to find the key and get yourselves out.

There are all sorts of different rooms to explore – some are more adult (i.e. harder, and themes like horror) and others are more than suitable for kids (detectives office is one that we did).

Definitely worth buying for a family that loves games – something different!

#2  – PERSONALISED FAMILY PICTURE

Last year I bought something very similar to this for my best friend, whose family love being outdoors – so the wellies were perfect!

You can take a look around and get a few different styles – but the idea of having a personalised picture is a lovely idea that will last for ever.

TOP TIP – If you’re on a budget then this can actually be a very thoughtful but inexpensive present. Simply buy the picture and frame it yourself. I love the Ribba frames from IKEA and as long as you ensure you get the right sized picture, it will work perfectly!.

 

#3  – BOARD GAME

What better way to get the family all involved in a present than buying a board game!

There are so many available, but we were given this one a couple of years ago and love it. Easy enough to learn quickly, but hard enough to keep everyone interested.

Of course – pick something that works for the family you are buying for – so that everyone can play and have fun.

#4  – FOOD HAMPER

I love creating a little personalisation by myself for presents, and making a food hamper fits the bill perfectly.

It’s not too hard, but shows you’ve really thought about the recipients…

Find out what their favourite foods are (something for everyone), and also avoid any allergies etc… so that everyone can have everything if they want.

Looking for hamper baskets a while ago, I came across hamper making packs – everything you need in one go – just add the contents!. I haven’t tried them as yet, but they look great…

#5  – FAMILY TREE PICTURE

This makes the perfect present for families who have finished having children, or for extended/blended families.

Having everyones name shows belonging, and I will be getting something like this for my own home pretty shortly!

#6  – FAMILY CINEMA NIGHT IN

This is another hamper idea – and this time it’s treating everyone to a cinema night in together. A great way to include everyone pretty easily, so that they have a treat that’s nice for them all.

You could add in things like a DVD, a bag of popcorn, some sweets, maybe even a voucher for a takeout. The options really are endless!

 

 

#7  – TICKETS TO A SHOW / EVENT

Whatever the family in question are in to – you could find something that you could buy tickets for them for: –

  • Theatre
  • Musical
  • Sports event
  • Concert
  • Pantomime

Take a look and see what’s out there in their local area – you may be surprised!

TOP TIP – You may have to involve one of the family in this though, as you don’t want to get them tickets for a date that they aren’t available….

#8  – SCRATCH OFF MAP

I saw this map at a friends house recently, and thought it was an amazing idea!

If you know a family that travel a lot, to different parts of the world, then this would be ideal. They can hang it on a wall and scratch off the places they’ve been.

What a talking point!

#9  – FAMILY TREE CUSHION

OK, OK – so this one isn’t necessarily going to get everyone excited, but it’s a lovely idea for a family living room/family room – and is a little bit unusual…
