When extended families start growing, it can get overwhelming to buy gifts for each individual child and adult.
A perfect solution is to give a single gift to each individual family--but what can you give that will be exciting to everyone, when there is such a large age span?
Find great family gift ideas here that will appeal to all ages!
National Park Passes
Know a family who has a big National Park vacation planned within the next 12 months? A great family gift would be to purchase a one-year National Park pass. An annual pass will cost $80, unless there is a fourth-grader--the Every Kid in a Park program give a free pass to fourth graders and their families!
Active-duty military members and permanently disabled citizens also get a free pass, and U.S. citizens over the age of 62 can buy a $10 lifetime pass.
Visit the National Park Service and give a family gift they will never forget!
If the family qualifies for a free pass, or already has one for this year, give them a gift certificate for admission to an attraction or activity on their itinerary, or a gift basket of items specifically for their vacation:
For the family who likes to play together, a water tube, water tramp, or floating island is a great gift idea.
Snow toys are also a great family gift idea!
Many outdoor games can be played and enjoyed by a wide age range.
Give a cornhole set with their favorite sports team logo, or a set they can paint and finish together as a family!
Many popular games have a jumbo outdoor version that would be fun for the whole family!
And seriously. Those bubble soccer balls are a RIOT. Get two, you will not regret it!
