For the board-game-loving family: You can rarely go wrong with board games as a gift. Otrio, released in 2016, is fun and challenging and can be played with up to four people. The game is a spin off of the well-known game of tic-tac-toe, however it is much more competitive and strategic.
Are you shopping for one person specifically?
For younger kids: A kid-friendly archery kit is a great idea for young kids, but for kids older than 8 years old, a normal archery kit is equally as fun. Kid-friendly archery kits can range from $20-30, while normal archery sets can range from $30 to far over $100.
For teens: The new Syma X5C 4 Channel 2.4GHz RC Explorers Quad Copter may seem intimidating, but it is a great gift for teens. This camera-equipped drone is durable, can be flown indoors or outdoors, and comes with a remote control. The drone is priced at $46.99 on Amazon.com.
If all else fails, money is always a safe option. Everyone can use some extra cash during the holiday season!
