Christmas Gift Ideas for Older Nieces and Nephews?

November 16, 2017

They range in age from 8-27. I do a group gift every year and I'm running out of ideas. Prior gifts included: custom ink t-shirt, skin suits, and ugly Christmas sweaters tailored to their personality. It's something they look forward to each Christmas so I don't want to let them down. It should be something that could apply to all of them, but we want it to be fun. Any ideas?


I tossed around some ideas like inappropriate socks or inflatable costumes, but neither seemed right.

Here are a few cute ideas:

  • Many malls will take photos and put them on coffee mugs or glasses. You can have one made for each one of them. Afterwards add a pair of funky toe socks or some sort of funky socks rolled up in the mug and give them this.
  • You have done the ugly sweater already, so why not do the ugly tee-shirt. You can tailor some really ugly looking tee-shirts for each one of them and this would also be a fun gift.
  • There is also different types of balls you can buy such as basketballs, baseballs, soccer balls. Why not get each one of them a different type of ball and have their names printed on them.

  • Halloween has just passed and there are still plenty of Halloween or costume stores that are trying to sell off some costumes. Get each one of them a stupid Halloween costume that they could wear next year. You can stick with one theme on this if you wanted to go this way too.

The idea of socks is kind of cool. There are websites that sell all kinds of wacky socks, and fun socks. One thing we like to get for our kids every year is fuzzy socks. They would most definitely not need to be inappropriate!


Another idea would be card games. There are card games for all age levels.

Or how about books? Yes I know, who reads books anymore? Well, my kids do and they love to read. There are coloring books for all ages. Humorous books. Cookbooks for all age levels. And just books of interest (places, things, how things work, etc.)

Let your imagination run a little and I'm sure there is something that will inspire you!!

Group gift, is that a gift they all can enjoy together? How about board games and card games - so they can all bond together and play not just on holidays.

Maybe decorate each of them a Christmas stocking filled with treats. You can individualize each stocking with different novelties such as xmas ornaments, their name, or memorabilia of their favorite sports team or hobby.
