Family Reunion Gift Ideas for the Holidays
Regardless of whether you're the host or the guest of a family reunion, express your affection and appreciation toward your extended family members with one of these thoughtful but accessible family reunion gifts.
21 Family Reunion Gift Ideas
1. Personalized Keepsake Bookmark
A thoughtful family reunion favor is a personalized bookmark with an inspiring quote on it, your family's name, and the date of the reunion. To make it extra special, you could dig into your family's archives and find some common ancestors with interesting life stories.
Add one ancestor's photo to one side of the bookmark and some interesting facts from their life to the other side. They'll make an unforgettable family reunion giveaway.
2. Family Photo Jigsaw Puzzle
If you're he host, awe your guests with a family photo jig saw puzzle. It will make an interesting family reunion keepsake. Look for a company that can personalize the container of the puzzle as well.
Add this gift to one of our gift bags, like the 8" MINI Cotton Tote Bag which you can easily personalize with the family reunion logo.
3. Hand Knitted Mug Cozies
Delight your guests with a set of handmade coffee mug cozies, alongside personalized mugs that best describe the recipients.
Mug cozies are tiny 'mug sweaters' that prevent your hands from getting burned when drinking hot beverages. They're super cute and they can be extra special if you've made them yourself.
4. Family Reunion Keepsake Coffee Mug
Add an inspiring or fun message to a coffee mug that your recipient will cherish forever. For instance, your aunt will likely smile at the "Aunt: Like a Mom, Only Cooler" message on her coffee cup every time she's drinking her morning java from it.
5. Personalized Family Reunion Wine Labels
A personalized wine bottle will likely strengthen the family bonds even more, especially if you pick a great wine. Pair the wine bottle with one of our best-selling wholesale wine bags for everyone to take their wine home.
6. Extra Special Wine Bag

Put the personalized wine bottle into a special wine bag, like our Single Bottle Burlap Gift Wine Bag with wooden handles (pictured above). It will make a family reunion gift to remember.

A nice family reunion favor that has plenty of uses in a home and kitchen is a personalized tea towel. Print that family recipe everyone is talking about every single Christmas or Thanksgiving on it or an inspiring message with the family reunion logo.

All families have those special members that love spirits a bit more than they should or simply appreciate delicate drinks. For both borderline alcoholics and fine drink connoisseurs, the bar in a jar keepsake will be a huge hit.
