I have family gift ideas for you today! I had totally wanted to show you this post in December to give you a fun family gift idea for your holiday season, but our December was quite different due to the death of my Aunt. I ended up throwing things together in a box and sending them off to my family before I had a chance to really cute-ify them or photograph them for you guys.
I still love the idea and think it is a fantastic family gift idea, so I put together one for my family to show you as well.
At Christmas time, I really like putting together some kind of gift for our siblings rather than sending gift cards. It feels more meaningful to me and is fun to me as well. However, all of our family live all over the USA, so I also need something that packs well and won’t cost an arm and a leg to ship.
Here is what I came up with this year. I put a bowl in the box. My family got one large red bowl from the dollar store that I was going to add some cute movie themed decoration too, but it didn’t happen this year. I photographed this with my popcorn bowl set (affiliate link), which would be adorable to include but would add to the price of the gift and the price of shipping.
I think the hardest part was coming up with movies that would work for the various ages of kids in the families. Because we sent ours at Christmas, we send either Home Alone or How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the Jim Carey version) – both affiliate links. We thought those would be fun movies for most any age.
In the red bowl, I put popcorn, chocolate covered pretzels, goldfish and in this one I put M&M’s. Our family got Girl Scout chocolate covered pretzels as well (from the nut sale they have in the fall). All fun things for making a family movie night just a little bit more fun.
I put together cute printables for the family movie night as well. Get the cute printables for your family movie night gift and print and laminate them as an extra touch for this gift.
The beauty of this gift idea is that you can tailor it to any likes or dislikes or allergies. It is an easy gift to put in a basket and give or a box and ship.
It is my favorite type of gift to give and receive because it is yummy and means fun time with my family! What could be better?
The kitchen might be a little messy at the end from all the treats, but a yummy, fun family movie night will have been had, so it is all good in the end.
What kinds of family gift ideas do you have? Do tell, I would LOVE to hear more ideas and stock a few away for this year!
