Tips on choosing gifts for families

If there's one thing you should keep in mind when shopping for families, it's that generic is okay. There are a lot of people that you have to please, so buying something specific to a person's interest isn't the road you want to take. Think of cookbooks and kitchen products, home furniture and appliances, hampers, board games and (a tried and tested winner) a gift certificate.

Happy shopping!
