1: Movie Night

A gift card for Netflix is something that the whole family can enjoy together for months. You can choose different denominations depending on how many months you’d like to gift. Pair the certificate with a basket filled with a few different types of popcorn and boxes of movie theater candy. Gift: Netflix Gift Card, bestbuy.com; Pair With: Snack + Candy Basket

2: Socks For All

Gift a bright, colorful pair of holiday socks for everyone in the family. You can choose coordinating colors and designs so that everyone can wear them together on Christmas. Also include gourmet hot cocoa mix or a selection of holiday teas. Gift: Tommy Hilfiger Snowflake Crew Socks, macys.com; Pair With: Gourmet Hot Cocoa Mix

3: Board Games

Choose two or three games based on the ages of the family members. Classic, go-to games that usually work well are Jenga, Pictionary, Clue, Monopoly or Scrabble. You could also try finding games at your local thrift store and bringing five to six retro board games as a gift. Gift: Classic Board Game, target.com; Pair With: Assorted Holiday Dessert Basket (for Game Night!)

4: Mobile Printer

Though the kids might steal it away, a wireless mobile printer is a great family gift. These printers allow you to print pictures directly off your mobile phone or tablet. They’re small enough to toss in a bag, and they're lots of fun to bring to parties (or even to break out and use on Christmas Eve!). Gift: HP Sprocket Photo Printer, bestbuy.com; Pair With: Batteries + Photo Paper Packs

5: Shopping Membership

Another gift that will keep giving the whole year is a membership to warehouse clubs like Costco or Sam’s Club. These stores offer great discounts on bulk items, but you can’t shop there unless you’re a member. Pair the gift with a classic Costco bakery item. Gift: Gold Star Membership, costco.com; Pair With: David's Cookies Butter Pecan Meltaways Tin (via Costco)

6: Pizza Night

Put together the makings of a fun, homemade pizza party for the whole family. Pick up pizza dough, fresh mozzarella cheese, marinara sauce and toppings like fresh tomatoes or prosciutto. Pair it with a pizza stone or a pizza cutter. For an extra fun presentation, stop by your local pizza place and see if you can buy one of their large boxes. You can cover up their logo with a piece of paper and write your own note on top. Gift: 13-Inch Pizza Stone, bedbathandbeyond.com; Pair With: Chef-Inspired Basket

7: Do Good

Through organizations like Global Giving, you can purchase gift cards that allow each recipient to go onto the site, choose the cause that speaks most to them and make a donation. It’s a lovely gesture and a great way to teach kids about the power of generosity and giving. Gift: Donation Gift Card, globalgiving.org; Pair With: A Gift That Gives Back

8: Jump-Start a Vacation

The gift of travel is one of the most amazing presents you could give a family to enjoy together in the coming year. A gift certificate to home-sharing site Airbnb would be a great way to help jump-start vacation plans, allowing the family to choose any spot in the world to enjoy their time away together. If you know there's a specific place that they would like to visit, you could even include a travel guide book for that city or country. Gift: Airbnb Gift Card, airbnb.com; Pair With: A Fun Gift for Travel Lovers

9: Steel Fire Pit

This fire pit would be a great gift for a family that has a beautiful outdoor space to enjoy. Pair it with firewood and a s’mores kit, including marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate bars. Gift: Steel Fire Pit, homedepot.com; Pair With: Homemade S'mores Kit

10: Rock Band

If the family you're buying for loves video games, then this Rock Band set is perfect. Everyone can take turns being a rock star and choosing their favorite songs. Set it up on Christmas Eve so everyone at your holiday dinner can join in on the fun. Gift: Rock Band 4 Bundle, amazon.com; Pair With: Gifts for Music Lovers
