As our kids get older and our families expand, I think it’s common and even practical to consider giving couple or family gifts. And even if you give individual presents, too, family gifts can be really fun. Of course, all of these gifts for couples and families are appropriate for individuals, too.
I have so many gifts in this list. It’s my favorite!!! And I’ve covered all the price points. In fact, some of them are admittedly a little spendy. But my thinking there is that you and your spouse may be looking for a couple gift for yourselves. Ha!! What a great idea!
Azul board game // When I messaged my game-loving son and asked for another board game recommendation, he texted back, “Azul!” I figure if this game rates an exclamation mark, it must be fun. This game is appropriate for 2-4 players, ages 8 and up. It plays in about 30-40 minutes.
Create Your Own Reel Viewer // With this relic from the past you can create your own reels from favorite photos. Perfect for a travel souvenir instead of the obligatory t-shirt!
Collapsible Portable Corn-Hole Game Set // This fun game set works for all ages and is perfect for camping trips, family reunions, church gatherings, birthday parties, etc. It comes with 8 bean bags and a carry case. Easy to pack and carry.
Ladder Toss Outdoor Lawn Game Set // Come on! You know you’ve seen other families playing this simple game and wondered what all the fuss is about! Now you can discover for yourself how addicting this easy to construct game set is.
Tandem Kayak Set // This sit-on-top kayak set includes two ores. It’s the perfect gift for you and your honey to give yourselves. But it’s also a great family gift, perfect for all ages. James and I are definitely getting one of these soon!
Bocce Ball Set // Like the other lawn games I’ve included, Bocce Ball can be played on most any outdoor surface: sand, dirt or grass. And it’s fun for the whole family. Perfect for vacations or backyard fun.
Spike Ball Set // Okay. I think this is my last game. But don’t games just make the best family and couple gifts? It’s a neat way to give somebody a little fun! And your family or friends can enjoy this fun indoors or outdoors.
Cycling Tours with REI // Yeah, this is definitely the priciest gift on my list. But who knows? You may want to give you and that biker husband of yours a fun trip on winding back roads. And REI takes care of all the details on any of their collection of packages. You can choose from places such as the Texas Hill Country, California Wine Country, Victoria and Gulf Islands, Big Sur and Pacific Coast and many others. But hurry! These 2020 tours are 20% off if booked by December 8th.
Sonic Slider Sled 2-Pack // For the couple or family who live where it snows…or who are travelling to the snow! These sliders are meant to be used by anyone 4 and up.
Nespresso Coffee & Espresso Machine // For the coffee or espresso lovers, this home machine will be a much loved gift. Or you could get one for yourselves!
L.L.Bean Breakfast & Everyday Tote // Compliments of you and L.L.Bean, a family or couple could enjoy this yummy pancake breakfast during the Christmas holidays. But if you give it to them in this classic everyday tote, they’ll be able to use it for all the things! Every couple or family needs a tote like this for road trip snacks, days at beach or ball park marathons.
Macaron Making Kit // This simple kit contains the necessary silicone mat and piping pen your loved one will need to make sweet macarons. Maybe they’ll repay you with some of the sweet treats!
Insulated Wine Tote // I like this particular wine tote because it’s sleek and sophisticated looking. It carries two bottles of wine or champagne and includes a corkscrew. The tote also has an adjustable strap.
Charcuterie Board // This bamboo cheese board is kind of hard to see because of all the goodies they have piled on it. Ha! But I guess that’s the purpose of this thick, hearty board. You might want to give it along with some cheeses, crackers, meats and a bottle of wine. Or hey, just the board alone is a nice gift!
Deluxe Picnic Basket // This sweet picnic basket includes service for two: ceramic plates, plastic utensils and shatter-proof wine glasses. and everything is held in place with pockets or straps. What a fun gift for a couple of any age.
Fresh Greenery Wreath // Someone in our church gave us a wreath for the fall and I’ve been beside myself happy over it. I’d be absolutely thrilled to receive a wreath of fresh greenery like this. This one is 22″ in diameter, but they have others to choose from. Be sure to order by December 16 to ensure holiday delivery.
Ticket Stub Diary // For a family or couple that likes to keep memories to treasure, this ticket stub diary would make a neat gift at a very reasonable price. Whether they collect ticket stubs from vacations, movies, concerts or baseball games, they’d enjoy having a place to keep them for future reflection.
Bodum ® Chambord Gold 34-Ounce French Press // This French coffee press not only makes wonderful coffee, but it looks beautiful enough to use when serving guests. The brand is spot-on for French press enthusiasts, but the price is just right, too.
America’s Best Day Hikes hardbound book // For the hiking enthusiasts, this beautiful pictorial with hiking information would be both a coffee table favorite and a smart guide.

Extra Large Picnic & Outdoor Blanket // Discovered that the couple already has a nice picnic basket? Well get them this portable extra large picnic & outdoor blanket instead. This is a nice one to keep in the car on the ready!

Blessed for My Day
Do you have the light? As a child you may have sung, “This little light of mine…I’m gonna let it shine…” But the light is not some shining essence we have within us naturally. Jesus said very clearly that He is the light. We only have the true light within us if we choose to follow Christ.
This Christmas let’s remember to spend time in the presence of the light of the world. Only then can we truly reflect His brilliance, giving a little light to those around us. When we have the light of Christ in our lives, we help others come to Him. We don’t stand in the limelight ourselves, but instead we point others to Jesus.
Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” ~ John 8:12
