You can customize this doormat to say their last name, a date, a famous saying, a classic symbol, etc. You can design it so it fits the style of your boyfriend’s parents.

Plus a doormat is a useful gift! It serves not only as decoration, but a way to help keep the house clean when people walk inside. They will pass it daily, making it a gift that will keep you in their minds constantly. 


2. Family Members’ Birthday Sign

I think this gift is sooooo clever! I have seen this idea floating around for years and I love it. It is a sign that lists the months of the year, but with a hook.

You then create little charms with each family member’s name and birthday and place them on the corresponding month.

Not only is this a cute decoration, but it also helps you keep track of important birthdays. You can include other important family dates as well like anniversaries.

It is a great family bonding experience. Therefore, these marshmallow roasting sticks are a great gift idea. You can get one for each member of the family and assign everyone a color.

7. Survival Multitool

11. Solar Lanterns

TomCare Solar Lights

I saw these lanterns and thought they would be perfect for the summer. These solar lanterns would be great to have when you are sitting outside, talking, and relaxing when the sun goes down.

It gives you light and the flickering effect of a fire lantern, but without the flame. You can just place them around where you are sitting and have a nice ambiance as you hang out.

If your boyfriend’s family enjoys hanging out outside and/or have a nice area outside they enjoy relaxing, this is a perfect gift.


12. Air Fryer

Ultrean Air Fryer, 4.2 Quart (4 Liter)

I have been hearing only positive things about air fryers over the last few months. So, I have a feeling it may be a great holiday gift option for your boyfriend’s family.

Kitchen gadgets are fun to find and experiment with, and an air fryer is a great option for that.

There are many different recipes they can try with it. Also, everyone in the family can take turns trying a different recipe. Then at the next family gathering, you can try all the new fun recipes. 


13. Non-Stick Bakeware

Calphalon Nonstick Bakeware, 6 Piece, Black

Another kitchen-themed gift on this list! This time it is a set of non-stick bakeware that makes a great gift option.

This set has six options of various shapes and sizes that are great for baking. If anyone in the family likes baking, then these are perfect for them.

They are dishwasher safe and easy to clean. It is a practical gift, especially if they need to replace any of their bakeware. 


14. Waterproof Shower Speaker

INSMY IPX7 Waterproof Shower Bluetooth Speaker

Playing music while you shower is a must, at least in my opinion. It makes showering a fun experience! But, sometimes, your phone speaker is just not cutting it and you do not want to risk getting water on a nice speaker.

This is why this shower speaker is perfect to solve this problem. It is waterproof so you do not have to worry about it getting wet and ruining the speaker. If your bf’s family also enjoys music, especially in the shower, this is perfect.

It is also great for traveling because it is small so it can be transported easily and withstand the chance of getting wet. Which makes it an even better gift option. 


15. Mini Projector

Sometimes, watching shows or movies on TV can get boring. So why not help your boyfriend’s family change it up with this mini projector.

It can project films from several different devices like a phone, laptop, game console, Chromecast, etc. It is also portable, meaning they can take it from room to room with them.

The display is also fantastic, allowing for great quality while streaming. This projector is a cool gadget to get as a holiday gift for your boyfriend’s entire family! 


16. PhoneSoap Wireless UV Smartphone Sanitizer 

PhoneSoap Wireless UV Smartphone Sanitizer & Qi Charger

This product uses UV light technology to disinfect your phone, while also charging it. Our phones are incredibly dirty and this product helps prevent the spread of bacteria by using our phones.

By giving this to your boyfriend’s family, you are helping to prevent them from getting sick. They can each use it whenever they get home for the day.

It is a very smart product and incredibly useful. I am obsessed with Shark Tank and I saw this product on an episode and WOW it is a fantastic product. 


17. Weighted Blanket

18. Dishwasher Magnet

BabyPop! Dishwasher Magnet Clean Dirty Sign

If you did not start the dishwasher or do not remember starting the dishwasher, figuring out if the dishes are clean or dirty can be annoying.

Especially if no one remembers if they started it. Especially if you live in a house of multiple people. If your boyfriend’s family struggles with this confusion, then this magnet is perfect!

They just place it on the dishwasher and if they start it, they flip it to clean, and if they start to fill it with dirty dishes, they flip it to dirty.

This may seem like a silly gift, but it will solve an important and confusing problem. Therefore, this is a perfect holiday gift for your boyfriend’s family. 


19. Cards Against Humanity: Family Edition

So, I think we are familiar with the popular game, Cards Against Humanity. This is a new version of the game, that is meant for any family, ages eight and up.

So, they can play it with almost anyone! This is perfect for a family composed of a variety of ages.

This is the perfect holiday gift for your boyfriend’s family because it appeals to a wide variety of people.

21. King and Queen Beer and Wine Glass

King Beer & Queen Wine Glass Set

In my opinion, this set of glasses is perfect for your boyfriend’s family. They are adorable. You have a beer glass for his dad and a wine glass for his mom. And each has a crown designed onto the front. They can also be used for cocktails. 

So, not only do they have some new glasses, but they also have ones that demonstrate how important they are.

By gifting them these glasses, you are demonstrating how you view them, which may work in your favor.


22. Bamboo Cheese Board

Bamboo Cheese Board Set With Cutlery In Slide-Out Drawer

This cheese board is so cute! It is not too big, which means it will be easy to store. Plus, it comes with a drawer and utensils to use for the cheese and fruit.

This is all around a great holiday gift for your partner’s parents. It is useful for everyone since it can be used for gatherings and sharing with everyone.


23. Glass Coffee Mug

Don't Speak! Funny Coffee Mug Gifts, Coffee Mugs for Women Men – 12 oz Glass Cool Coffee Mugs, Funny Coffee Cup Birthday Gift for Best Friend Boss

I want this mug for myself. This design for a coffee mug is genius. If your boyfriend’s family also loves coffee and needs it to function, then this gift is perfect.

The glass mug has different line markers with phrases on it to let people know when it is safe to talk to you. Which I can relate to because I am not functioning until after I have had my coffee.

So, if his family is the same way, this is a great holiday gift for your boyfriend’s family. You can get one for each of them or if there is a particular person who needs coffee, then this is the ideal gift for them.

This gift goes beyond just simple jewelry, it showcases your love and appreciation for her. Gifts that show your appreciation for the other person are always perfect. 


30. Mug for Boyfriend’s Mother

Tabletop Wood Wine Holder

This fun little gadget is very nifty. It is different from any other bottle of wine holder. It can sit on top of tables and hold wine glasses with it. So it works for storing wine, but can also be used for parties.

If they want to have multiple bottles available for people to choose from, they can be easily available with glasses.

But, it can also be just for storing their wine bottles and glasses. It is multifunctional, and a great gift option.

So, if your boyfriend’s family, or someone in their family, like his mother, would enjoy an essential oil diffuser then it is a great option.

You can even get her some oils to go with it. If you use them and have a favorite, you can include it in the gift and tell her why you love it.

It is a unique shape and design that will grab people’s attention. All you need are some nice glasses, and you have an evening enjoying some nice whiskey. 


Of course, everyone’s family is different. Everyone has their own interests and what they do not like. However, I hope this list gave you some ideas or helped you think of your own gift ideas. Having to find the perfect for your boyfriend’s family can be stressful. But just take a deep breath and it will be okay. Also, remember what I said, you cannot go wrong with customization!

Fun Activities To Do For The Holidays

Here is a list of five fun activities you can do for the holidays with friends, family, or your boyfriend’s family!

1. Have a Movie Marathon

There are so many holiday movie options out there. There are the classic ones, the ones on the Hallmark channel, the hidden gems, etc.

Of course, they do not have to be holiday-themed, however, they all need plenty of snacks like cookies, popcorn, candy, chips etc.

You need comfy blankets, pillows and you must wear your pajamas. So, get comfy, turn on the first movie and enjoy a marathon movie night!

2. Go See Holiday Lights

I love going to see the beautiful decorative lights during the holidays. You can drive around and look at all the unique light displays, or you can find somewhere you can go walk around. You can even stop and get some cute pictures in front of the lights.

An easy way to find places to go see lights is to look online. There are some location lists available or sometimes people post on social media about where the good light displays are. So keep an eye out for posts to find the best lights!

3. Make Your Own Decorations

Buying decorations can get expensive so, you could make your own! Go to the craft store and get a bunch of supplies like paper, paint, glitter, ribbon, etc. You can look up ideas online or you could just wing it and rely on your own imagination.

You can make ornaments, wreaths, a sign, garland, etc. You can do this activity with friends, family or your boyfriend’s family.

Then at the end, you can share your amazing artwork with each other. I am nowhere near artistically talented, however, I still think this would be so much fun!

4. Have a Secret Santa Gift Exchange

This is a classic activity done around the holidays. You just need a small or large group of people and you put everyone’s name in a bowl or hat. Then everyone picks someone, and that is who they have to buy a gift for. However, you do not tell anyone who you have until you all exchange gifts.

The goal is to make sure no one figures out who you have, then when you exchange gifts you reveal who you had by giving them the gift!

You need to be sneaky about buying the gift and you cannot ask for help from anyone in the group because then it reveals who you have. However, it is so much fun to see who everyone has in the end.

5. Make Gingerbread Houses

This is a classic holiday activity. However, it can also be a frustrating activity. But it can still be fun. Especially if you do not take it too seriously.

You can build a small one by yourself or maybe work on a large one with friends or family.

You can even build a village out of your gingerbread houses. Just have fun with it.

It will probably get messy and it may not stay up, but that is the fun of it. Just try your best and at the end, you eat all the candy and gingerbread.

That’s a wrap! This post was all about holiday gifts for boyfriends family. Did you enjoy the article?
