Movie Night: Gift certificates for streaming services or movie rentals work great, but if you really want to wow the recipient, consider adding a few extras to make it super special.

Or add a custom snack box like this one on Amazon filled with your favorite concessions. Either way, this movie-themed gift idea will keep on giving thanks to the reusable elements.

Experiences: Tickets to any big event or attraction also work great, especially for relatives far away. Tickets can be delivered electronically, and many let you give a certain amount without specifying a date. That means they can pick the time that works best for them.

Puzzle Time: Give a hands-on experience thanks to the wide variety of puzzles available. You can find one in almost any theme to speak to whatever they like, from animals, to food, to particular places. Want to take it one step further? Get one of Ravensburger’s Escape Puzzles and let the family solve the mystery by assembling the puzzle and decoding the clues hidden in the picture. No matter whether you go with a basic puzzle or one with more pizazz, the entire family can enjoy putting the pieces together.
