This year has really made us appreciate family, whether we are with them more than usual or miss them because we are unable to travel. It is a good year for family gifts, gifts for the whole family to enjoy together, or to show unity even if family members are miles apart. This gift guide is packed with unique and personal great gifts for families that will be well received during the holidays or any time of year! The gift guide offers gifts for families in a range of price points and many can be personalized for that special touch.
I saw this and just thought it was the coolest gift. Did you love your View-Master when you were a kid? Create a custom one with snapshots of the family, or provide someone the kit as a gift to customize on their own!
Large cloth napkins customized with the street name and zip code of where someone lives, used to live, went to college, or anywhere else that has a sentimental value. I love encouraging families to choose cloth over paper not just for fancy meals but the everyday; these could really change a family’s habits to be greener in a fun way.
Printed on a cute collection of birch wood sticks, the family fun-fostering prompts run the gamut from amateur astronomy (learn three constellations, then spend an evening stargazing) to encouragement to give back (volunteer as a family). Once you’ve shared each experience with your crew, note the date on the back of the stick with the official bucket list pencil (provided). Made in the USA.
For those who may have moved away, this is a cute way to bring a little of their hometown back to them. A different scent for every state (and California separated by Northern and Southern). They sound great, for example, my home state of Maryland smells like saltwater, ginger, bay leaf, and thyme.
Utter Nonsense is a card game where players combine silly accents with even sillier phrases to create sayings that are just plain ridiculous. Fun for ages 8 and up, this game continues to get rave reviews for being a lot of fun.
This simple-to-use ice cream maker creates up to six half-cup servings of ice cream, fresh fruit sorbets or slushy cocktails. Simply freeze the ice cream maker for at least 24 hours, and add chilled ingredients.
This year has shown how nice it is to have outdoor activities that the whole family can enjoy. Includes 6 color mallets made from premium hardwoods, 6 balls, 9 wickets, 2 end posts, rules, and a carrying case.
Designed to serve a crowd, each bowl is dipped in a food-safe glaze and can serve a bounty of salad, pasta, or fresh fruit. Artist Sheree Burlington hand-paints the earthenware with your family name (ten characters total), and the cursive that curls around the edge reads: "Each a branch upon a tree, reaching for the sky, bound by roots that draw us home, even as we fly."
If you've ever visited a Cracker Barrel, you've likely played the peg game placed on each dining table. Jump the pegs to remove as many as possible from the board. Practice until perfection, or follow the strategies included with the game. This would be a fun sticking stuffer or small gift for a family to have at their own dining table.
Let these stars bear witness to the love spoken between our hearts. This personalized 12' x 18" poster can hold three hearts with the night sky: a family of three, three kids, any arrangement. This Etsy seller is known for attention to detail and personalization making a gift a family would treasure.
This nature-inspired portable corn hole game is handcrafted and handpainted here in the USA – and designed to inspire easy backyard fun for the whole family. Just aim, toss and enjoy. Includes two tournament-size boards, eight fabric toss bags and official rules. Personalization is free up to 12 letters.
A fun card game for families - for tweens, teens and their families that brings everyone together and makes a perfect gift for kids and teens (4-10 players, ages 8+). Inspired by Cards Against Humanity, but 100% family-friendly.
