Gift Guide for your Family in 2023

Best Gift Ideas for Your Family in 2023

Whether they're blood-related or not, our families are some of the most important people in our lives. As much as you love them, though, sometimes it can feel nearly impossible to find the perfect gift for your family members. Check out the list below for all the unique and meaningful family gifts you'll need this holiday season.


Hobby Gift Baskets

Sometimes the hardest people to buy for are siblings and cousins who are just as busy living life as you are. That's why we love the idea of putting together one of these personalized gift baskets to give them a reminder that they deserve some time to slow down and do something fun for themselves.

Our favorite ideas:

  • At-Home Movie Night Basket
    Filled with yummy snacks, popcorn, DVDs or a streaming gift card, and delicious drinks (either hot cocoa mixes, wine, or refreshing pop choices – depending on who you're gifting).
  • Spa Night Basket
    Fill with face masks, candles, lotions, comfy pajamas, fuzzy slippers, chocolates, and a relaxing coloring book.
  • Baking Day Basket
    Fill with a fun cookie mix (store-bought or homemade), a cute apron, cooking utensils (like cute and functional spatulas or stirring spoons), bakeware, etc.
  • Game Night Basket
    Fill it with entertaining board games or cards, yummy shareable snacks like chips, candy, and sweets, a gift card to order their favorite pizza for the night, a notepad to keep score, and a fun trophy for the winner.


Treasured Memories

We all know that parents and grandparents adore anything that helps remind them of the kiddos they love who are growing up way too fast (even after you have clearly entered adulthood — they still love it). If you want to give them something they will truly cherish, do something fun with your favorite family photos. We guarantee it will be a HUGE hit.

Our favorite ideas:

  • Family Photo Book
    This could be done digitally or by going old-school with cutting and taping to create a traditional DIY scrapbook.
  • Photo Puzzle
    This could be a fun family activity or something your loved one could do when they are missing a special piece of their family.
  • Photo Blanket
    What could make you feel more cuddly and at home than snuggling in a blanket with all of your loved ones?!
  • Photo Calendar
    This is extra fun and helpful when you add important personal dates for the upcoming year like birthdays, anniversaries, etc.
  • Wi-Fi Digital Photo Frame
    Give multiple family members access and everyone can send in their latest photos to share from their phones (from anywhere in the world!).


Fuel Funds

If you're buying for teenagers, older grandkids, nieces or nephews – you know how hard it is to pick out something they will actually use. But here's a secret… they will always think ‘score!' when they open a gift card to their favorite gas station.

They could use it when they need to fill-up or to swing in and grab a snack when they need to energize for the day. Or you could get lucky, and they will use those funds to come and visit you!


Fun Portrait of the Family

If you have someone especially hard to buy for in your family, one new idea we have especially been loving is an artistic portrait done of your whole family or just one special member.

If you're artsy, then creating one could be budget-friendly and something the recipient will treasure even more. Not as confident in your artistic skills? No worries! There are lots of professionals who commission this type of work, and the outcome is extraordinarily special.
