Family gift for people who need nothing!

I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to think of a gift to send to close friends, a couple and 4 kids (aged 10-21). They say they don't need anything, but I'd like to send something. I'm looking to spend a maximum of £20. I've thought of DVDs, music etc but they always buy themselves any that they want, needs to be posted so not too heavy, and not too boring (not asking much, am I? fgrin)

Does anybody have any ideas please, I'm feeling less than inspired at the moment?

TIA

Lottery tickets to the value of what you want to spend.

I would probably choose a top 10 DVD and some popping kernels.

Have you spent any time with them this year and taken photos? I often make up photo books as family presents for people like that.

A board game & a token gift for the winner of an evenings play smile

I would order a food hamper (lots discounted atm) to be delivered directly to them. Food treats are
always welcome particularly if they have everything they want.

Alternatively, buy them a cinema voucher which they can put towards a family cinema trip.

How about making up a little movie hamper?

You could put in cinema tickets, popcorn, sweets/chocs. In fact I think cineworld sell something like that if they are still in stock.

Just checked and cineworld do a £20 Christmas gift that contains 2 x Adult tickets (2D or 3D) and a voucher for 2 regular drinks & 1 popcorn.

The problem with cinema tickets is that it's way over budget for all 6 of them. I have no idea which games they don't yet have, haven't visited recently (and feel as though photos of just us might be a bit narcissistic!) but I appreciate all the input. Lottery tickets may be the way to go.

change I meant photo's of them! grin

Hehe Footlight, I thought you meant photos of us all together during the visit, but sadly we haven't made it this year. It's a lovely idea for future reference though.
