Living in the Minneapolis area, you have probably considered Minnesota Viking’s season tickets, but that probably wouldn’t go over very well since some in the family are not football fans.
Another thought may be a family pass to the Minnesota Zoo. Would that really be something everyone in the family would use? It isn’t a terrible idea, but the idea wheels need to keep spinning.
You could consider buying each person a separate item, but deep down you want an item that brings the whole family together with one big item.
Have you considered a pet dog or cat? You then consider the members of the family with allergies and the animal idea is out.
You may consider a big screen television with a surround sound system, but you think about the four flat screen televisions in the house already. The family watches just too much television as it is, and you do not want to add to it. You may want to consider a different family gift.
Another great family gift idea could be a camcorder. You could film the family during different activities, and have the videos for keepsakes in later years. This sounds like a great idea, but you want more ideas.
You may have spoke with someone else and the mentioned a Nintendo Wii game system. Yes, the Wii isn’t a terrible idea. Family members would get more exercise playing games on it then with their other game systems. The only thing is: it is another television item, and you are trying to get away from the television ideas.
Another big idea as of late is a complete family computer system. Many families are setting their computer systems up just like a business with their own screens and keyboards that run through a central system. It is a great idea, but considering the majority of the family has iPads and such, is it feasible?
Wow, another thought just came. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to take the whole family on a Caribbean vacation? Maybe a cruise through the Bahamas or Virgin Islands. How about flying to Puerto Rico for a week. The beach and the warm weather after the hard Minnesota weather sounds delightful. But getting everyone on a schedule to be able to plan such a trip??
It is now you see the answer. A swimming pool installation in Minneapolis advertisement. You have found what you know is the answer, and the whole family will love it. Yes a swimming pool is the family gift.
I am sure glad you thought of it.
