Theme your family dinners
There’s so much scope for fun around the dinner table — why not add a theme to what you’re eating? If you want the theme to be international, you could have a taco or burrito station where everyone makes a different ingredient for Mexican night, or everyone could make their own pizza for Italian. Or you could take things further and theme the dinner around a game each family member chooses, then pick a snack to eat as you play. Getting all the family involved to pitch in a dish or a side’s a great way of bringing everyone together.
Take virtual museum trips
Some of the world’s greatest museums and galleries are available to explore at the click of a button. Many of them have interactive facilities so you can discover humanity’s most amazing achievements and artworks from the comfort of your sofa. We’ve listed a few of our favourites here: Visit the British Museum in London in one click. Fancy a visit to Musée d’Orsay in Paris? What about the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Korea? Look through the National Gallery of Arts and their exhibitions in Washington, D.C.
Create your family recipe book
Everyone in the family has a speciality dish or a favourite food, so why not combine some of the family’s legendary meals from every generation? Get grandma’s secret recipes written down so they’ll never get lost — it’s also a great way to pass on her methods to the youngsters of the family. For those that haven’t decided on their signature dish yet, find out their favourite meal and search for the recipe. Using the bonusprint online editor, it couldn’t be easier to create your very own personalised family favourite cookbook. Check out our amazing range of pre-designed customisable recipe books to get started.
Refresh your space
Spring is traditionally the time for you to have a clear out and start anew, and one of the simplest ways to revamp your living space is to update the wall art. We offer a wide range of wall art options from aluminium prints to canvases to hang on your wall, and using our online editor, they couldn’t be more straight forward to create. Whether you want to relive your travels, enjoy those extra special family moments, or simply want to create some stunning art for your walls, it couldn’t be easier to refresh your rooms.
Send out personalised cards
When you’re missing family and friends, a thoughtful way to stay in touch is by sending them a personalised card. Whether it’s for a special occasion or just to let them know you’re thinking of them, our massive range of cards will have you covered. There are also all kinds of options to add a personalised message and different photo layouts, so you can send them something unique that will definitely bring a smile to their face.

As well as keeping the whole family organised, they make fantastic personalised gifts too, if you feel like surprising someone special.
The great family bake off

It’s up to you who judges the finished baked goods but rest assured they’re in for a treat. Not only will the house be filled with the delicious smells of baking but your camera will be full of magical moments and content to fill your family recipe book too.
