Trying to find gifts for the whole family is a daunting task. That is because family members don’t think alike, and they don’t do things in the same way. So, if you have to shop for your family, then the following gift ideas will be perfect for each member of your household. Let’s take a look at 5 practical gift ideas for every member of your family.
1. A Technology Infused Household
Families must be connected to the world. One of the biggest and best holiday gifts you can provide for your family is a technology-infused household. Families like to like WiFi, smart TVs, computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones. They really love it when all of these devices are connected on the same network and they can have access to a wide variety of entertainment and work applications, software and programs. You can establish a strong tech network for your household that includes internet cable, popular computer games; with music and movie stream capabilities. Your family will really love having this type of tech service at their disposal.
2. Board Games for Families
Board games no longer have the same appeal, as they did in the past. Even though that is the case, that doesn’t mean that they still don’t appeal to people today. Goodhouse Keeping online magazine recommends getting the classic board game trouble to entertain family members. However, there are other board games such as Chutes and Ladders, Candyland, Life, Sorry, Connect 4, Risk and Uno are classic popular game titles for families to enjoy. Newer family orientated board games include Catan, Richard Scary’s Busytown, and Pandemic.
3. Family Mugs and Shirts
Families can develop a team spirit when they get their own customized sweatshirts and cups. They can also get a set of family sleepwear that showcases their family unity as well. They can put their family’s names on these items and even sport their nicknames. Personalized family gear is always a great gift to give during the holidays.
4. An Evolving Family Portrait
An evolving family portrait is a digital scrapbook that continues to grow over time. Family members can create a collage of pictures, videos and audio data that highlights their everyday life and life’s special moments. An evolving family portrait can be used to create family portraits or a family scrapbook. This is a great way for families to highlight their history and to keep track of family births, deaths, weddings, graduations, and other family milestones.
5. Useful Personal Items
If you’re looking for practical gifts, you can’t go wrong with personal items. Things like socks, lotion, and other hygiene products are always welcome. If a family member has specific job equipment requirements, consider gifting that as well. For example, a firefighter husband might appreciate an Upcycled Men’s Dopp kit for everyday work.
