All one needs to keep in mind while picking the gift is that the present for the family reunion should be beautiful, sentimental, personal, emotional and practical, all at the same time. Here are some of the gift ideas for the family reunion.
Make a family video as a gift for the family reunion can be a really great idea. Videotaping your own interviews and showing film footage’s of family members and their homes and cities. Also, clips from some special events like a birthday, wedding, vacation or graduation may also be really cherished by the relatives.
Buy a beautiful phone book and pen down the phone numbers and e-mail ids of all the family members. This can be a really heartfelt idea as it will allow all the family members who have unfortunately lost touch with some of the other members to finally reconnect. Also it will provide a mailing list of guests for sending invitations on some special events.
Gifting photo albums on the occasion of family reunion can be a really good idea. Putting in family trees and information and fun memories about each family member can tend to be a really sweet idea. Including written interviews and parts of the journals of the older members of the family and some printed memorials of remembering loved ones who have passed away is a very sweet and heart touching idea.
Family T-shirts or Hats
Printing t-shirts or hats with family surname or a family photo can be really exciting. These T-shirts and hats can be treasured forever and even passed on to future generations as a token of love and affection.
Some other gifts like baked goods or key chains can also be gifted on this occasion. So, choose the appropriate gift for your family reunion and make it memorable.
