25 Ingenious Gifts Your Whole Family Will Appreciate

Because who doesn't love pizza and game nights?

family holiday gifts

Buying a gift for a family—whether it's your own or someone else's—can be tricky. Everyone has different interests, especially when kids of various ages are involved. In that case, gifts that celebrate family bonds (like a personalized portrait of everyone together!) or that help you spend time together (like a pizza-making kit or a movie night toppings package) are the best way to go, because everyone can appreciate them and have fun together.

These family gifts are sure to win over everyone from kids to grandparents, whether they prefer a night in on the couch together or traveling the world with their loved ones. The trick to figuring out which one is best for your intended recipient? Think about their favorite things: Is it coffee in the morning with their kids? Consider a custom set of coffee mugs with everyone's names on them. Or are they always reminiscing about memories with a beloved great-grandparent? Have the family tree turned into a beautiful custom wallhanging? These meaningful gifts get to the heart of the holidays and will be treasured for years to come.
