Christmas is approaching, the holiday when most gifts are given. The truth is that, as with the sweets that are presented at this time of year, everyone ends up buying and giving something, even those who do not celebrate it. Whatever the case, this is a good time to take advantage of some of the offers or special products that appear during these days to give family gifts. We will help you choose.
Top 10 family gifts for 2022-2023
In this list we will show you the 10 best family gifts of 2022-2023. Unlike personal gifts, these are for the enjoyment of all family members. They can make you all spend pleasant and unforgettable moments during the cold winter days. Take note and get your hands on some before they run out.
1. Board games
No matter what the weather, board games are an infallible resource to give as a gift during the Christmas holidays. Cold days indoors can be much more pleasant, especially those that combine questions, mime, drawing, etc. Can you imagine the heating on, a hot drink, some nougat and laughter with your family? Success is guaranteed.
Cooking is in fashion. Gone are the years when mum was in charge of everything and the others enjoyed her good hand at the table. Today, everyone works together. Television programmes have taught every member of the family, whatever their age, how to prepare gala dishes and spectacular hors d’oeuvres.
It’s time to put what we have learned into practice and nothing better than some of those tools that we didn’t even know about before. These could include oil-free fryers, slow cookers, griddles, fondue makers, pasta cutters, food processors and many others. The whole family is sure to get a lot of use out of them this holiday season.
You may think that electronics is something for young people only, but nothing could be further from the truth. Many game consoles are designed to be enjoyed by the whole family. Some have controllers that allow you to virtually play tennis, pingpong, cycling or football. But not only that, some games are similar to tabletop games, but with more options and far superior graphical possibilities.
Maybe it’s time to trade in that old TV for a smart TV or finally get a 10-inch tablet. And, as an original idea, maybe you could consider getting a projector. They are cheap and of surprisingly good quality. You can watch the classics as if you were at the cinema.
We are not referring to a wicker basket, but to one of those that contain a gastronomic experience inside; those that bring cold meats, sweets and drinks typical of these dates. They come in all types and prices. We are sure that opening the door to the delivery man or seeing you enter the house with one will arouse everyone’s excitement.
5. Experience boxes
Today, both on the internet and in some shopping centres, it is possible to find activity packs. There are packs for one person, for a couple and also for families with children. There is sure to be one that will appeal to young and old alike.
Gardening is all the rage, have you ever thought about the possibility of preparing an urban vegetable garden as a family? If you live in a flat, you can also bring some pots with seeds. You’ll have a great time preparing everything and even more fun when the flowers come out or the first fruits appear. Among the most outstanding gifts for gardening-loving families are the mini-greenhouses or the botanical experimentation games.
Photo albums are a perfect family gift. Among other things, you can create some with the best days of the summer holidays. Another possibility is to use all those digital photos that have been saved for years. This way, instead of having them in disarray, you can keep the highlights together and go through them as a family.
Long gone are the days when a tracksuit and a pair of beachwear were the same for any sport. Nowadays, there are not only specialised garments, but also all kinds of accessories. If you are lovers of sporting activities, you are sure to find some equipment for everyone at a very competitive price.
9. Themed objects
We don’t want to recommend the classic mugs with photos or names on them, which are not bad either. Now there are doormats on which you can print caricatures of family members or storybooks in which the family is the protagonist. Original, fun and inexpensive.
10. A trip to Benidorm
This would be the icing on the cake. The best gift to escape the cold winter with the family and enjoy pleasant walks on the beach and a total disconnection is a trip to Benidorm, where the sun accompanies us most of the year.
And where can you enjoy the best of family gifts? Well, at our campsite. At Camping Villasol we have everything you need to stay and spend an unforgettable mini-holiday. Make your reservation online or contact us.
