I LOVE surprising people with gifts! Especially if I can help create special family memories for them. The holidays are my favorite time to make up and surprise our friends with special gift baskets. I recently came up with this fun family night in a box for our friends after my latest Target run (of course).
Fun family night gift box idea with free printables!When I go to Target I like to search through the current savings on their Cartwheel App to find new products to try or to be inspired for gifts if I don’t have an idea yet. They will be having some awesome savings of 30% off from November 26-28 on Swiss Miss / Reddi-wip / Slim Jim / Orville Redenbacher so it will be the perfect time for you to stock up for your own family or buy to put together this easy gift box for a friend!

Back to the family night. All the snacks made me think of a fun family night so I had the idea to create a box that would tell a family exactly what to do (and have all the ingredients) for a fun night.

I found some cute ornaments that they could add onto their tree as well as make a cute label for the box.

The holiday game is like Headbanz, Heads Up or just reverse charades. You hold up a card (or use a headband from another game) and the other players, or your partner depending on how you want to play, try to get you to guess the word with clues.

Make hot chocolate according to the directions (we make ours with milk). Add a scoop or two of vanilla, chocolate or peppermint ice cream, then top with whipped cream and sprinkles! SO good with hot or cooled chocolate.
