Each year for Christmas we give/get one large whole family gift. These are never gifts that Emily herself asks for but instead a gift that Kevin and I know will bring us together as a family throughout the next year.
Over the years this gift has been games, activities we can enjoy together, annual passes to a theme park, or a family trip.
My favorite thing about the gift for the whole family is that 99% of the time it ends up being all of our favorite Christmas gift and gets more use than any other gift that found its way under our tree.
Here are some great gifts from the whole family that will encourage quality time together while having fun and connecting with each other. You may also want to pick up The Unplugged Family Activity Book which includes 60+ Simple Crafts and Recipes for Year-Round Fun.
Family game nights are one of our favorite ways to spend quality time together. There are so many amazing games to choose from, you can’t go wrong with one of these though.

Escape the Room Together
If you have an escape room near you a gift certificate for a family outing is a great gift ide! If you don’t have any near you here are some you can do at home. Nothing says family quality time like trying to escape a room together.
Get Outdoors & Moving Together
Take the family fun outdoors and get moving together with these fun outdoor games and activities sure to have your family having a blast. The laser tag set is our family gift for this year. I can not wait for the fun it is going to bring us!
Buy a larger Lego set than you would do alone and sit down and enjoy it together as a family. There are so many fun ones to choose from. You could also just pull out the Lego and all create together.
Gifts of Time Together
Hiking/Camping, Movie Tickets, Spa day, Sports tickets, Play tickets, Zoo tickets, Amusement park tickets, Weekend getaway, Cooking classes, Indoor rock climbing, Ropes course experience, or a fancy dinner or dessert out.
Subscription boxes are a gift that keeps on giving. Which is one of the main reasons I love giving and getting them as gifts. Choose a box that you think your whole family would like. We signed up for Universal Yums four Christmases ago and still love it!
