Family Gift Ideas This Christmas

Reading Time - 2 minutes

The 2020 festive season is upon us, and we’ve got some wonderful family gift ideas for Christmas.

From a hot air balloon ride with the whole family to a chilled-out weekend stay at a Hobbit Hole, here are some of our top choices for Christmas presents for families.

Choose A Hot Air Balloon Ride Christmas Gift

For a truly spectacular family experience day, all of you can unwrap the adventure of a lifetime on Christmas morning to go up, up, and away on an unforgettable hot air balloon ride.

Children aged seven or over can fly in our balloons as long as they’re at least 4ft 6in in height and are accompanied by a grown-up. Teenagers aged 16 and over can fly by themselves.

Prices start from just £169 per person this Christmas – the perfect time to hop on board for the family adventure of a lifetime.

Personalised Christmas Gifts They’ll Love

If the past few years are anything to go by, personalised Christmas gifts for the whole family are always a winning choice.

And we absolutely love this personalised snuggle blanket from Duncan Stewart.

It’s perfect for cosying up on the sofa with the kids or your significant other for a family movie night.

(Side note: Is it just us or are there more Christmas movies this year than ever before available to watch across all the streaming and normal TV services? We’re totally loving it!)

And while we all love the convenience of a photobook, there’s something timeless about a traditional photo album that you have to print out and stick actual photos in.

This gorgeous family tree photo album from Personalised Gifts Shop is one of our favourites.

Gift A Family Experience This Christmas

As grown-ups, we found our memories of Christmas as kids were more about the things we did and the time we spent together than whatever that year’s must-have toy was.

While we will always believe a hot air balloon ride simply can’t be beaten as far as Christmas experience day gifts go, others are also great for families.

Inspiration for experience gift ideas can be found with just a few strokes of the keyboard but how do you narrow down what family activities are perfect for you?

If you’re a family of thrill seekers, why not race down the river on a London sightseeing tour like no other with Thames Rockets?

We love their 40-minute Break The Barrier experience for families from just £54.95 per person.

Or if each of you calls yourself an animal lover, a zoo-keeper for a day experience will leave you all smiling like the cat that got the cream!

What do you love to do as a family? Or what gifts have you received that you still cherish all these years later?

Here's to a very Merry Christmas from all of us here at Virgin Balloon Flights.
