Family Experience Gift Ideas

If you're looking for gift ideas for someone who values experiences over material things, here are a few tips that might help. When giving gifts, it's essential to put some thought and effort into the selection process. Please take a moment to consider what the recipient needs and what experiences they value most.

Once you have a clear idea, set a budget that works for you. Remember, experience gifts can often be more affordable than traditional tangible gifts. Based on my experience, I have found that some of the most valuable gifts I have given or received were not expensive material possessions but low-cost experiences that have created cherished and lasting memories. You can make a personalized experience gift, which can be enjoyable and an excellent way to offer your loved ones the opportunity to create new and unforgettable memories together.

Finally, don't forget to follow through on your gift. Make time in your schedule to spend with your friends and loved ones, and make sure the experience is one they'll remember for years to come.


I have developed multiple experience gift guides for families that concentrate on entertainment and togetherness and provide ways to combine a traditional gift with an experience. These gift guides are an excellent way to give your loved ones the chance to create new memories together.

1. Family Movie Night

Brrr! Winter is knocking at our door, but don't you worry! You can make the most of it by snuggling with your family and having a movie night. It's the perfect excuse to bond with your loved ones and have a blast! Grab some classic DVDs or stream your faves. Make your space extra cozy with a warm blanket, and stock up on yummy snacks. For a real treat, whip up some fresh buttered popcorn to get everyone excited for movie time.

And hey, don't forget to check out our post for some excellent holiday movie picks!

2. Pjs and Pancakes

Winter months are a wonderful time of year when we can indulge in breakfast for dinner while wearing our comfy pajamas. Choose a weekday night( or weekend) to cozy up and enjoy a fluffy stack of pancakes and warm maple syrup with your favorite people. This winter party concept is not only for kids but also for adults to enjoy. After all, who doesn't love to be cozy in their pajamas?

3. Hot Cocoa and Game Night

Picture this: a cozy night in with your loved ones, unplugged and ready to roll! Hot cocoa, board games, and giggles galore. Some nights are chill and laidback, with everyone in their comfy pajamas jokingly arguing over who's winning. Other nights? Well, let's not talk about those! Game nights are the perfect time to create a custom hot chocolate bar that caters to everyone's taste. Let your imagination run wild, from marshmallows and peppermint shavings to cinnamon sticks and whipped cream! And let's not forget the dunkers: cookies, chocolate-covered pretzels, you name it! So, get your mugs ready, and let the games begin!

4. Pizza and Outdoor Movies

One of my top entertaining tricks is to spice things up with a theme or activity, like a family movie night! Whip out an inflatable movie projector (it's so compact!), and you're halfway there! But wait, there's more! Add a fiery pizza oven, freshly baked pizza wafting through the air, and a buttery, salty popcorn bowl. Your family and friends won't be able to resist! Can we get an encore, please?!

As December approaches, it's the perfect time to indulge in all the Christmas and winter activities you can do in and around your home. We hope you have a fantastic month and enjoy making the most of your time with your family and friends. Whether it's a spontaneous holiday dance party or a cozy night in your Christmas pajamas eating pancakes for dinner or snuggling up watching a movie outside, we want to remind you of all the festive and enjoyable things you can do at home during this time of the year.
