Sometimes I like buying a gift for a family or couple instead of doing something individually. If you’re looking for gifts that will be suitable for the whole family then look no further as there are loads of fun ideas in this gift guide.
Think about planning a games night or get together with friends or family or maybe even just having a movie night in at home. A sweet hamper from the Swizzels Shop is a fun thing to share out and is filled with amazing retro sweets such as Rainbow Drops, Love Hearts and Double Dips. There’s something for everyone in the box and Swizzels has a whole range of treats ideal for Christmas gifting, including vegetarian and vegan goodies.
If you’re looking to gift a game this Christmas and need something for the whole family then take a look at The Upside Down Challenge Board Game. Turn everything upside down and take part in challenges that soon become harder than normal. Put the goggles on and try to do things like drink a glass of water or draw a picture. It’s bound to give players hours of fun.
Christmas is a great time to learn to do something new together as a family. Jaques of London offer a wide range of Wooden Games that are suitable for the whole family. You might consider their wonderful Chess Sets as a gift this year. I particularly like this folding set where all of the pieces are kept nicely together and each has it’s own separate place for storage. The set also comes with the rules of chess to help you learn!

Whether you’re at home all day or you’ve gone on an adventure with the family it’s so important to make sure you drink enough. Hapi bottles are designed to keep drinks cold for 24 hours as well as hot drinks for 12 hours. The bottles fit most drinks holders, are lockable, leakproof and come in a range of cool colours and sizes.
If you’re a big fan of the TV show, like we are, then Richard Osman’s House of Games* is a great game to gift this Christmas. It includes rounds such as the finale Answer Smash, Rhyme Time and Totes Emoji it’s a great choice for families with older children. Will you be able to do better than you do when watching it on TV?
Another great TV show is Taskmaster and it has us in stitches every time we watch it. The Taskmaster boardgame* allows you to take part in fun and hilarious tasks set in rooms such as the kitchen, the garden or maybe even the lab, as well as the famous final task.
Do you and the family like playing computer games? For fans of the Fast and Furious film series there is the new Fast and Furious Spy Racers Rise of SH1FT3R game on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox. You can play in story mode, online multiplayer mode or just go for a quick race. This means there are options for the whole family!
We love to play games after a big Christmas meal and Pass the Pud is such a fun after dinner party game. Up to 4 players need to answer questions against the clock in a race against time to beat the burp! The game comes with 110 game cards as well as 25 cardboard ‘sixpenses’ and a jingling Christmas pudding with a timing device. This is definitely one to play after Christmas dinner!
Days out for the family don’t have to mean travelling really far but instead you can find something to do in your home town. Treasure Trails offer really fun adventures in towns close to you all over the country that are suitable for everyone. Get out and discover somewhere new close to home.
It’s always nice to have a family day out planned and there are so many places to go in London. buyagift have loads of great vouchers such as the Family Visit to Shrek’s Adventure with River Pass experience. The voucher is for 2 adult and 2 children with entrance to Shrek’s adventure, along with a 24 hour river pass. The voucher is valid for 20 months so you’ll have plenty of time to use it.
Puzzles are great to do either on your own or as a family, depending on how you feel about having help completing them. This 500 piece jungle jigsaw puzzle by Carnovsky is actually 3 puzzles in 1 and also has a digital app to use with it. This would be a great gift if you’re looking for something a bit unconventional for someone.
Another beautiful puzzle is the 1000 Piece NASA Jigsaw Puzzles from Find Me A Gift. It actually comes in three different colours; blue, yellow or pink so you get a very different view depending on which one you choose. The puzzle is great for any space fan or someone who just wants more of a challenge.
Maybe you’re looking for something more fun and funky in a puzzle or something a bit more modern. The Kikkerland Pow! Puzzle is really bold and colourful and symmetrical meaning you need to do the same on each side! Good luck to whoever needs to figure out which bit goes where.
From day to day at home to trips in the car or a weekend away, Kikkerland travel tins have something suitable. Pictured above are the Movies Trivia Game and the Travel Nail Kit. The nail kit is perfect to pop in a handbag or have handy somewhere at home while you’ll get loads of fun playing the movies trivia game to see how much you know.
The Survival Tin will kit you out with items such as insect repellent stick, combination padlock & instructions and a folding toothbrush. Other tins are also available and these cost £10 each.
