Not only will your beloved DIY enthusiast have fun with their new project, but they might end up making something that they’ll use daily or can proudly display.


Who among us is not mesmerized by the night sky? Although not every stargazer considers themselves an amateur astronomer, if you do have one in your family, a telescope might be the perfect gift. A telescope can provide hours of entertainment and inspire future astronomers.

Subscription to a streaming service

Star projector

A galaxy or star projector can be a fun gift for anyone looking to transform their room into a starry night sky. It’s a perfect night light for little kids or anyone else who loves to fall asleep under the stars.

Cozy blanket

Winter is the time for snuggling up with a good book or movie, and a warm, cozy blanket is the perfect accessory. Whether you opt for a plush fleece or a warm woolen throw, this gift is sure to be a hit. Well, unless you happen to live someplace where it’s always summer.

Fun activity or experience

Physical gifts are always fun, but why not try gifting an experience? Whether it's tickets to a sporting event, a day at an amusement park, a cooking class, a test drive of a supercar, or an arts and crafts seminar, the whole family can enjoy spending quality time together trying out a new activity.

New tech gadget
