Often purchasing individual gifts for members of your
family, or extended family, becomes harder and harder over
time. When we are children, we are very easy to buy presents
for. However, as we get older, and our tastes get more set
in, it becomes harder for others to buy us things which we
will like and enjoy. A good solution to this issue is to
purchase "family gifts" which everyone in the
family can enjoy together.
Here are today's top ten Christmas family gift
suggestions to get you started on selecting a perfect gift
for the family on your list – yours or someone else's.
Family Gift Idea #1 – If you have a budget on the
higher-end, a good suggestion is a Nintendo Wii gaming
system. The Nintendo Wii is much more interactive and family
friendly than you typical gaming system.
Family Gift Idea #2 – For more traditional families, or
if you are on a much smaller budget, consider a gift of a
game night basket. In this basket you can put a new board
game or two, a deck of cards, and some snacks for their game
Family Gift Idea #3 – If the family you are gifting
enjoys movies, a movie night basket is a perfect gift.
Include in the basket their favorite movie candies, some
popcorn, and either a DVD or a gift card to their local
video rental store.
Family Gift Idea #4 – For a family who is constantly on
the move, the gift of something they can do together in the
car can be just the ticket. Consider a gift of a trivia game
or book which gives them car game ideas to try out.
Family Gift Idea #5 – If your family homeschools their
children, or simply spends a lot of time visiting local
attractions, a year membership to your local zoo or other
large attraction will be a very welcomed gift.
Family Gift Idea #6 – Another great gift idea is to
gather recipes from all of your family members and put it
together into a nice recipe book for all of the families on
your gifting list.
Family Gift Idea #7 – One tradition which works very
nicely for family gifts for Christmas is the gift of a
special Christmas tree ornament or ornament set each year.
You can use them to commemorate any special happenings in
their family each year.
Family Gift Idea #8 – Another big hit is a gift basket
which includes chocolate in all forms, such as hot
chocolate, gourmet chocolate candies, chocolate spoons to be
used in drinks, etc... As long as no one is allergic, there
isn't a family out there who won't enjoy this basket.
Family Gift Idea #9 – If the family you wish to gift
has been struggling to make ends meet, you may wish to help
them out without doing so in an overt manner. One simple way
to do this is through a gift basket loaded with food items
which they can use. Another simple way to do this is to fill
a small gift basket with gift cards to local stores and gas
stations in their area. By choosing a variety of stores you
can allow them to purchase things they need to help get them
through the next year.
Family Gift Idea #10 – Finally, the gift of an advent
basket, or an "all week gift basket" can be a nice
fun change from your typical gift basket. In this basket you
will include wrapped gifts which will be opened one each day
until Christmas. This is really enjoyable for children, even
with small gifts to be opened.
As you can see, gifting for a family can really be the
way to go this Christmas season. Many people find it easier
to purchase a gift, or make a basket, rather than try to
find just the perfect gift for each member of the family.
