Hi friends and happy November 1st! It’s never too early to start discussing gift ideas so here is the first gift guide for 2020 and it’s ideas for the whole family. Let’s start with personalized gifts. There are so many unique and fun ideas on Etsy but below are some of my favorites.
Personalized Gifts from Etsy
Yard Dice- these are such a fun idea for the family and they are custom made which is nice. My Mom bought our family yard dice one year and we love playing them on a nice day! Click her for lighter wood. Click here for darker wood.
Matching Shirts- these are just a fun idea for everyone to wear on Christmas morning. These specific shirts are Friends themed which is always a win! “Christmas 2020 The One Where We Were Quarantined”
White Personalized Coffee Cup- I love the gold lettering of this one!
Clear Glass Coffee Cup- clear cups are so adorable and unique in my opinion. I love this one!
Campfire Coffee Mug- I love the speckling of these cups. There are a couple of color options available.
Black Tumblers and Mugs- these are actually available in a variety of colors and tumbler sizes. They even have lowball tumblers which I think is super cool!
Next up is games! Who doesn’t love family game night?
Games for the Whole Family
That’s It!- the object of this game is to yell out the answer before everyone else. It’s fast-paced and fun!
Qwixx- this is a super easy and fun two player game. I personally feel like two player games can be so hard to find! I highly recommend this one.
Hedbanz- this game looks like a lot of fun. I don’t have this one but it’s on my list!
Skip-Bo- just a classic must-have game that’s perfect for the whole family and appropriate for older kids too.
Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza- I haven’t played this one either but it looks like a fun and easy family card game.
Incohearent- this one can be pretty funny so if you like to laugh I recommend playing this. This game requires you to decode the “incohearent” phrase. It’s not for kids but it’s fun!
Think ‘N Sync- this game is a BLAST. You have to try and say the same thing as the other person at the same time.
Throw Throw Burrito- I don’t have this game either but it looks like a good one for the kids. I mean, you get to throw little burritos at each other, it has to be somewhat fun!
Watch Ya Mouth- if you’ve never played this get it for the fam. That is all!
Spoons- I didn’t even realize they had the spoons game that you could buy. I used to play that as a kid all the time with real spoons and a deck of cards!

Miscellaneous Gifts from Amazon
Portable Chargers- these are AMAZING. Comes in black and white!
Furbo Dog Camera- I mean, our dogs are family too! And this is something the whole fam can enjoy. I know I would be obsessed with it if I had a dog lol.
Wearable Blankets- these just look really comfortable and there are tons of colors to choose from!
DNA Kits- I’ve never done these tests but I think it would be super cool. So fascinating and they all have great reviews! Click here for the 23andMe kit and click here for the ancestryDNA kit.
Next is experiences. Experiences are some of the best gifts to give and receive in my opinion. Sometimes it’s hard to think of things to gift to people. Experiences are a little more exciting and creative, and they allow time for bonding while doing something you don’t get to do every day. Some ideas are below, a few of which are kid-friendly too.
Experiences for the Family
Escape Room- Escape rooms are such a fun activity to do with others (depending on who you’re with lol). There are Escape Rooms all over the place.
Trip to the Zoo- this is a perfect gift for kids. Who doesn’t like going to the zoo!?
Weekend Getaway or Vacation- it’s always nice to get away once in a while and kids can enjoy this too. There are lots of places that are kid friendly if you have young ones!
Sporting Events or Concert Tickets
