One of our family’s favorite things to do is play games and do puzzles together, so of course, we love gifting games and puzzles! Everything on this gift guide is perfect for the game lover, the puzzle lover, or both!
We have this game, and the concept is simple, but it’s oh, so fun. The goal is to come out with the least amount of points, so when a card is placed, you have to decide to either take the points or play a chip and say, “no thanks.” If you run out of chips, you’re out of luck. The player with the least amount of points wins the round!
This snowy Christmasy village puzzle is so darling. I think I could even get my kids to help out with the 500 pieces.
Explore iconic sites and National Parks across the U.S. with this fun, quick game that can be played in 20 mins. Great gift for couples and families. A portion of every game sale is donated to the National Park Service!
This is a game of numerical strategy loosely based on golf that our family is absolutely obsessed with. Great for all ages, and really fun to play with just two people even! Really addictive and really easy to learn, so even non-gamers love it.
This is a team-based guessing game where you have to communicate without speaking, only using icon cards! This is a great game for a bigger group with 4-12 people.
I’m obsessed with this festive city scene puzzle. The artwork of this nighttime city lit up with lights and decorations is incredible, and apparently, the pieces have shiny gold foil, which sounds magical.
This game sounds so fun and kind of reminds me of Telestrations! Everyone is drawing a picture together with the same prompt, except one person who is the “fake artist.” They don’t know what the prompt is and are hoping to skate by without being detected as the fake artist.
The game that adults love, but a family-friendly edition! Sort of like Apples to Apples but the cards and prompts are funny, and will leave you all belly-laughing by the end.
A luxury edition of the classic game of clue we all love and grew up with. This game set is stunning, with burled wood, and a tempered glass top to display the 3-dimensional rooms below. A work of art.
Fun for all ages! It’s a card-stacking game with a very short instruction time so you can dive right in! Kids love it because it’s very simple pictures, but it’s also great for adults because there’s also a lot of strategy to it. Can be played with 2-7 players.
This Dinner Dares game is perfect for adding a twist to any dinner party. Every guest is given a card at their table with a different challenge to execute during the meal, and nobody knows what each other’s challenge is! Fun!
Another cute puzzle that’s great to gift and isn’t Holiday themed so it can be done year-round. The puppy in the window is cuuuuute.
This was one of the top games on Amazon for 2022! It’s about blurting out the fastest answer and hoping you don’t reveal too much.
We have this game and are obsessed with it. The board game is just a gradient of colors and using only one and two-word cues, players have to guess which specific hue is being described. Harder than you think, and funny how differently we perceive and describe colors!
Easy to learn and quick to play, and there can be up to 20 people! This game is all about following the crowd and guessing an answer that you think the majority will go with. You don’t want to be the odd one out in this game!
This game won “best party game” and over the summer when we stayed in a beach house with family, we played this over and over again! Could not get enough of it. The chameleon has to do their best to blend in while everybody gives clues to the prompt, in hopes of not getting caught! So, so fun!

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Last week, Chris and I had the incredible opportunity to travel to London for work. We were invited by Williams Sonoma and William Morris and Co to preview their newest collaboration and the inspiration behind it. It was my first time in London and although it was a quick trip, they brought us all over […]
