10 Amazing Gift Ideas Under $150 for the Whole Family
Mark three, four or even more people off your list with these unique gift ideas that promote family togetherness.
If you think about it, communal Christmas gifts are kind of genius. You can save time and money, cross multiple people off your list at once and ultimately get the whole family something that they really want: more quality time.
This year, take the work out of finding four or five perfect presents and get everyone something they can enjoy together. Start with our favorite gift ideas below, which range from just $30 to $150, and are things they might not normally buy for themselves.
Give everyone an excuse to gather in the kitchen with a tablecloth that doubles as a fun family-friendly activity. While parents and older siblings prep the cookies, little kids can color in illustrated whisks, rolling pins, cookie molds and more using the 10-pack of washable markers. The gift set also includes four holiday favorite recipes.
Ensure that they have a cozy Christmas (and maybe start a new family tradition) by gifting them a set of matching pajamas. The snuggly flannel fabric and seasonal pattern will make these PJs a hit for years to come — and can even be upgraded with a pair for the dog.
Now here's a gift they'll definitely cherish. Give them the perfect snow day activity and a special keepsake all in one with this 200-piece puzzle that puts them right in the heart of the design. You can include up to 10 members of the family and customize them with the same face shape, hairstyles, skin tone, etc., like their real-life counterparts. They'll be so touched when they put it all together.
If it snows a lot where they live, send everyone outside to play with this inflatable sled from FUNBOY. Ultra-thick vinyl protects their new ride from punctures on the way down, while a reinforced rubber base keeps the seat nice and sturdy. The sled can comfortably fit two people and includes a rope for easily pulling back up the hill.
Turn trimming the tree into a more hands-on activity by gifting them an ornament-painting kit. Each box comes with four ceramic ornaments cut into the state of your choosing, plus four paintbrushes, eight paints and a glaze finish. You can select their home state, a place they go on vacation or somewhere else that has special meaning for them.
If they miss going to the movies, treat them to the next best thing: a popcorn kit and a Disney+ subscription for one year. Inside the ready-to-gift box, they'll find three types of kernels, as well as fun seasonings like Sweet and Salty Kettle Corn and Spicy Chili Lime. This is a great way to upgrade their usual movie nights at home and keep little ones content throughout the year.
Never underestimate the allure of a fire pit. Help them make the most of their backyard this winter with a small-but-mighty Brazier. Thanks to its compact size, it'll easily fit on their patio and offer a touch of style with its distressed bronze finish and lattice design.
What's something they're bound to use and enjoy for its sentimental value? Try a cozy throw that tells their family story. Featuring a one-of-a-kind contemporary crest that can be customized with everyone's names and interests, this sweet throw will serve as a physical reminder of the bond they share.
Clear winter nights call for some stargazing, don't you think? Create lasting memories for the whole family with this Celestron 80mm Portable Telescope, which can be set up anywhere and used to view planets and stars. Together, they'll learn how to work the beginner-friendly device via a smartphone adapter and app and get great use out of the handy backpack.
Keep the entire family entertained this winter with a new ping-pong table for the garage or basement. The lightweight aluminum frame and convenient handles make it easy to move around the house. Even better, this set comes equipped with paddles and balls so they can start playing right out of the box.
