It Makes Sense To Belong! Learn Why >

The holidays are right around the corner, so it’s time to start planning ahead for gifts. While Christmas is about spending time with those you love, we understand that the holiday season can be stressful – and it always seems to sneak up on us. If you’re looking for ideas for Christmas gifts for the family but don’t know where to start, we have some suggestions for you. 

Ideas for Christmas Gifts


Every family member has their own personal gift preferences, but it’s also fun to find gifts for the whole family to enjoy together. Family Christmas gifts allow for bonding time and memories to be made. 

Home Activities 

There are a lot of fun home activities to purchase as gifts for the whole family. Depending on your family dynamic, you may enjoy watching movies together, or even have some friendly competition. The possibilities are endless, but here are a few ideas we have:

  • Board Games
  • Karaoke Machine
  • Backyard Games
  • Trampoline
  • Family Video Games
  • New TV
  • DVDs

Plan a Vacation

If you are looking for ideas for Christmas gifts and enjoy experiences more than material items, planning a vacation might be the way to go. Set up a vacation rental, hotel, or resort stay and enjoy some quality time together as a family. This can be planned either over the Christmas holiday or shortly after. 

Here are some vacation ideas we suggest:

  • Mountain Getaway
  • Ocean Trip
  • Camping
  • All-Inclusive Resort

Buy an Annual Membership 

As mentioned previously, some family members prefer experiences and quality time together. Annual memberships to local attractions are great Christmas gifts for the whole family. Your family will have fun at your favorite local attraction all throughout the year. Here are some ideas we have:

  • Amusement Park
  • Local Zoo
  • Museum
  • Aquarium
