If you feel as though you want to show your love for your family, or simply perform a gesture that says, ‘we made it through 2020, together’ then gifts that all of your loved ones can appreciate are a wonderful way to help cement that feeling of unity and togetherness.

When life seems like it rushes by at a speed that is frankly unfair, taking the time to let your family know you are thinking about them is a great way of capturing moments that can last forever. 
Here are some ideas that you might find helpful if you are thinking of providing your family and loved ones with an uplifting new year surprise. 

A Family Photograph
Important moments like a family dinner or a birthday party offer you the chance to come together and appreciate the support that you might provide one another. 

It seems only natural to want to capture these moments in order to look back on them with fond memories. Organizing a family photograph is one way to make sure that these moments are not lost to the annals of time and finding a great photographer can be the perfect way to realize this. 

If you happen to currently reside in the area, you might want to check out a wonderful Chicago photographer to meet your requirements. 

A Karaoke Evening
Whether you sing like an angel or you reserve your voice solely for the shower, a karaoke evening is great fun for the whole family. Alongside the health benefits of singing, karaoke can be a marvelous social opportunity. 

Finding the time to get everyone together and sing your favorite songs at the top of your voice whilst abandoning all embarrassment can be a delightful experience. It can also help with the elimination of loneliness, as even when you cannot physically be together, you can organize a virtual karaoke party online

A Cookery Extravaganza
For those of you with a passion for cooking, or a desire to get better at the culinary arts, organizing a family cooking competition is a brilliant way to get everyone involved. You also get to have meals cooked for you, which is always a bonus. 

If you have some relatives who live far away, why not try a brand-new recipe together whilst on a video call? This can be a fun activity to indulge in together, without lockdown restrictions having to impose too much of an issue. 

Solve a Mystery
There are plenty of online mystery games to try your hand at, for those among you who fancy some detective work. 

Committing to a character right down to the outfit can make way for hilarity for the entire family, all from the comfort of your own home. 

Staying connected is vitally important going into the new year, as no one enjoys having to feel left out or lonely on a regular basis. 

Making the effort to contact your loved ones and arrange a catch-up is a great way to let them know you are thinking of them, plus you might have a great evening of merriment and games, a much needed relief from the stress of the current times.
