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 family gift ideas below, which range from just $20 to $150, and are things they might not normally buy for themselves.

They can then assemble the cocoa board at home and enjoy a gourmet drink during their Christmas movie marathon.
