xmas gifts boxes ideas...

... for a large family.

Our family is doing a secret santa style for the adults of the family. However I am hosting this year and want to do something special for each household. I've been searching the web and came across a sundae kit box and a movie night box. I don't want to do pasta or Italian theme because I want to inspire a fun family time rather than dinner or lunch at table; which we all do anyways.

So I need ideas....

Sundae kit box:
1. waffle cones or cups
2. candy toppings
3. ice cream scoop
4. ice cream bowl $

Movie night box
1. pop corn
2. candies/chocolates
3. soda cans or bottle
4. movie

Whats another fun box idea? I need to make at least 10. One for a household with 3 toddlers and a momma. One for a household with a toddler, 1 momma, 2 grandparents and a greatgrandmother. One for a household with one preteen and both her parents. One for a single 20 something girl. One for my IL. And ther rest for adults. I would like to keep them different.

Since it is 10 gift boxes and that is on top of Xmas dinner and decorations I would like to keep each under $15.

Thanks in advance mommas!

Arts and crafts boxes? Think of a craft they might like and supply them with what they need to create :) I bet Michaels has great ideas!

Those are cool ideas
you could also do a Family fun night with a movie, board games, and some snacks.

For the single, how about a relaxation kit. Candles, small bottle of bubble bath or bath beads, and a cd?

That is a cool idea! But since she is into her iPod I think I'll do an iTunes gift card instead of the cd.

We don't have a Michael's but I am sure I can find a box worthy items on one of our locals stores

I'm doing household baskets for my parents, MIL, and my grandparents. I am making dryer balls and laundry soap for sure. Need more ideas for that.
