Gifts the entire family will enjoy

This holiday season, I'm swapping gifts with another blogger for her entire family for eBay's holiday gift exchange. I've partnered with eBay to create this post! Enjoy!

I still remember receiving family gifts when I was younger. It may sound strange, but the thoughts of getting a gift as a family was almost more exciting to me than getting an individual gift! It was always such a mystery to see what gift would fit our entire family. It was so much fun to see what the gift givers thought our family would enjoy. Those gifts still go down as some of my favorite gifts I have ever been able to enjoy!

I love the idea of giving a family gift. Instead of purchasing several smaller gifts, you can put your entire gifting budget to one big item that everyone can enjoy. Most of those bigger ticket items aren't things that families would typically think to spend their own money on, so they make really great gifts!

I put together a few suggestions to help you find the perfect gift when you need family gift ideas!

I loved searching for great gift ideas on eBay. It is a site that I can trust and I know that it is full of an incredible variety of items! No matter what types of things the family enjoys, eBay is sure to have something that would make a perfect gift for them!

It was so easy to find great gift ideas on eBay. It is a site that I can trust and I know that it is full of an incredible variety of items! No matter what types of things the family enjoys, eBay is sure to have something that would make a perfect gift for them!

I had the opportunity to find what I thought would be a perfect family gift for a fellow blogger. After doing a lot of searching, I decided on this great popcorn machine! My parents have a theater popcorn machine and it is has been a perfect addition to family movie nights. I hope the family I am giving this to will enjoy it as much as my family has!

Now for the rest of the items that I think would all make great family gifts!

Indoor Trampoline: I have several friends who own indoor trampolines. They are such a great way for kids to get out their energy, no matter what the weather is like outside!

Phone Printer: Instead of carrying around a camera that can print off pictures instantly, you can print off any beloved photos on your phone with a phone printer that can work instantly!

Soft serve Ice Cream Maker: Making custom ice cream would be the perfect family activity. Family ice cream outings can get quite expensive and aren't nearly as fun as creating your own ice cream at home!

Game Table: We got a game table with multiple games on it for Christmas one year and we loved it! I really enjoyed learning how to play the different games. Things got a little competitive after we all seemed to master each game. It brought hours of family entertainment!

Apple TV: Streaming favorite shows as a family can not only give a family something to do together, but it can save them a lot of money on their cable bill! I think giving an Apple TV as a family gift would be something a family of any age would be excited about.

Teepee: If it is intended to be put in a reading nook or just to be used to play in, a teepee would be a perfect family gift! It brings a lot of entertainment for the kids and it is cute enough that it wouldn't even bother mom to keep it up all of the time!

Pizza Oven: Making individual pizzas for dinner can be a really fun family activity. Having the perfect place to cook those pizzas would make for a great family gift! I know a pizza oven would be a huge hit at our house!

Basketball Arcade Game: Shooting hoops as a family can be a great activity to do together. Having a basketball arcade game is not only a fun way to have a little friendly competition, but it is something that can be played with all year long!

Lazer Tag: Playing lazer tag as a family can really bring out surprising sides of family members you didn't know they had! A family lazer tag set truly would be perfect for families of any age. You can probably also count on your gift being the coolest gift the family ever receives!

Now you are fully equipped to give a pretty incredible family gift this year! You can be sure to find great deals on the perfect family gifts on eBay. With the Buy it Now option, you don't even have to worry about the hassle of bidding. You can find a thoughtful gift without breaking the bank this holiday season. I think everyone wins in that case, don't you?

Thoughtful gift giving with eBay

Gifts for the Jet Setter 

"There’s a gift for everyone on your list, no matter what’s most important to them, and that means that this Christmas gifting thoughtfully with eBay is easier than ever." -- The Kentucky Gent

Gifts for the Entertainer

"Since this is a blind gift exchange, I had to rely on my experience as a hostess. I know that some of my key ingredients for the perfect event are to have the right tools, the right decor & the right mood. I found items that would be perfect for all three areas on eBay!" -- Whipperberry

Gifts for the Girl on the Go

"I love sitting down and making my lists for my family and really putting thought into things that they may not buy themselves and would enjoy. I usually start by thinking through their hobbies and what they spend most of their time doing and also the things that they love the most. For my dad it's usually sports related, my mom something related to traveling, and my sister loves experimenting with makeup and beauty." -- The View From 5'2"

Gifts for Moms on the Go

"I pride myself on my gift giving abilities.  I mean you have 365 days to plan people. The holidays are the same time every year, so it’s not like they come as a surprise! I always make sure to keep a list all year with all the people I need to buy for and I jot down ideas and things they have mentioned and voila I look like a gift giving master!" -- Life With The Crust Cut Off 

Gifts for the Accessorizer

"Do you know what's my biggest problem? I have a champagne taste on a beer budget. I love the hottest designers, and I want to gift the most luxury gifts to my friends and family every season, however, I'm on a marketing-girl budget over here. I'm a little limited on what I can give each season!" -- Alicia Tenise

Gifts for the Creative

"Give her a gift that will help her raise her audio game - without good sound, a video project, or online conference call will not be taken seriously. These Beats by Dr. Dre Solo 2 Wireless Headphones are top of the line, and will make anyone smile!" -- Lily The Wandering Gypsy 

Gifts for the Entire Family to Enjoy

"I had the opportunity to find what I thought would be a perfect family gift for a fellow blogger. After doing a lot of searching, I decided on this great popcorn machine! My parents have a theater popcorn machine and it is has been a perfect addition to family movie nights. I hope the family I am giving this to will enjoy it as much as my family has!" -- Girl Loves Glam

Gifts for the Modern Man

"One of my favorite things in life is sharing my love and appreciation to another, which is why I love the holiday season. I love to find the right gifts for enhancing the recipient’s life with something experiential, functional, and lasting - like a melodic vinyl that would complement the perfect wintry night with family or a pair of versatile boots that would take the owner on a memorable adventure." -- Honey & Silk

Gift for the Fashionista

"As someone who is into the latest of fashion, the highest of technology, and loves to have fun, eBay has been my one-stop-shop, and where I have been doing all my brainstorming on what to give. Another reason I came to eBay is because the world's top brands sell new items on eBay at amazing prices." -- Bird a la Mode

Gift for the Modern Mom

"Finding the perfect gift for the moms in your life really comes down to understanding her interests. Being a mom doesn’t mean her interests have changed, they only just expanded. If you’re looking for inspirations, here are my top picks from eBay that will delight any mom on your list this year." -- Style By Alina
