Personalized Family Gifts

Whether you’re celebrating someone’s birthday, commemorating a big accomplishment, looking for unique holiday gifts, or just trying to be nice, it’s important to have plenty of ideas for fun family gifts. At Shutterfly, we specialize in helping you create personalized family gifts for your mother, sister, or grandma that will carry unique meaning compared to typical family gift ideas. Whether you’re looking for unique family gifts to bring the entire family together for activities or individualized gifts for every member, we’re here to help with our guide on meaningful gifts for families. Whoever you’re planning on giving a gift will be sure to appreciate the thought put behind it.

Find Practical Family Gifts

Family gifts that serve practical purposes are frequently top picks, and we have plenty that can suit different interests. Our customized kitchen wares can be a great option for Mom and Dad, and they can make great grandparent family gifts as well. Our 10×10 circular cutting boards have a laser-engraved family stamp option that you can customize with your last name. Additionally, our personal pot holders are machine washable, and you can turn them into unique family gifts by adding one family photo. There’s even space to include a favorite family recipe. Complete the set with our marble trivets that you can spruce up with a photo and message like “Grandma’s Kitchen Is the Best.”

Family Gifts for Little Kids and Grandparents

When you’re looking for gifts for the whole family, you have to remember the little ones, and we have plenty of meaningful family gifts such as puzzles for kids. Get started with one of our custom kids puzzles, which are great unique gifts for family, since you can personalize them with some of your own family photos. Collect one to 10 of your best kids photos, and let them piece together the memories with one of our 30-piece thick piece puzzles for easy assembly. We also have special card games for kids where you can easily personalize the cards with up to nine photos, your preferred background color, and unique text. Make them feel like heroes with one of our personalized capes for kids, perfect for their best photo, and they’ll be having hours of fun.

As you continue your search for the perfect gifts, you’ll need to remember grandparent family gifts as well. If Grandma or Grandpa love to have a hot cup of coffee or cocoa in the morning, get them started with our personalized ceramic coffee mugs. Our ceramic mug collection comes in a variety of design colors, including red, purple, and green, and they’re microwave safe. These 15 oz mugs are ideal for one of their favorite photos, like one with the grandkids, and you can include a message on the mug as well. We also have personalized garden stones that they’ll enjoy admiring when they go outdoors. We have design templates for grandparents, pets, and many other family themes.

Explore Family Gifts for Pets

Pets are important members of a family, so when you’re shopping for gifts for a family, it’s important to include pet family gifts too. Our personalized dog tags are a fantastic option that can be customized with your own designs and photos on the front and back. These 1.5×1 bone-shaped and heart-shaped tags help keep your pet safe, and there’s room to include all your information in case a lost pet is found. Of course, pets also deserve something to enjoy themselves, and we recommend keeping them warm and cozy with one of our pet-themed blankets. Customize a 30×40 rustic blanket with your pet’s name and up to five photos that they can lay on comfortably.

Turn Family Gifts Into Fun Activities

Some of the best family gifts are the ones that get everyone together working toward a common goal or sharing in family activities. Whether you’re looking for a gift for family to simply pass the time, or you’re looking to turn holiday preparation into fun family gifts, here are a few of our favorite suggestions.

When you’re finding gifts for the family, you’ll need to create some special family gifts to give to the one person who’s stuck by you through everything. Get started with custom jewelry like our new personalized locket necklaces. These stainless steel necklaces are made with your choice of a silver or gold finish, and you can engrave your spouse’s name or a simple message on the front. Drag and drop photos from your Shutterfly account into the locket, and we’ll insert them before we ship it to you.

Collecting family memories is always fun and personalized photo books certainly make for fun family gifts. In fact, you can turn it into a family activity when you all plan your special book together. We have classic Disney photo books to commemorate classic vacations, family celebration books, and even photo book styles curated by Shutterfly experts like Marie Kondo for moments that spark joy. Make a photo book by simply selecting your favorite choice of soft, hard, or premium leather cover as well as our standard or layflat pages, and choose your best family photos for a book you’ll want to keep forever.

Spread Holiday Cheer With Holiday Season Family Gifts

The holiday season is the perfect time to start hunting for family gifts and customized Christmas stockings are great starting gifts for every family member (including the pets). Our 16″ Christmas stockings come in traditional red and green designs and stylish rustic plaid designs, and the velvet cuff comes with a loop hanger for easy hanging on the fireplace mantel. Personalize your mantel decor with a photo of the intended family member and a happy holiday message.
