    Promising review: "I was looking for an inexpensive yet good projector! If you are reading my review I will say don’t hesitate. This was a fantastic purchase. I have used this to watch TV and for movie nights with the family!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $129.99

    2. A classic game with a twist, Pictionary Air – it combines charades and drawing in AR for a fun (slightly ridiculous) game night. Although it's really tough to draw in the air without seeing your own drawing, that's part of the fun!

    Promising review: "Technology meets classic! Our 10-year-old twins figured it out and taught us how to play. We used a tablet to 'draw' on and beamed it to our bigger TV. Be careful of having lights or lamps in the background because the one will pick the lights and scribbles will show on the screen. We moved the lights and problem solved. It works great and we play this game as our family game night: parents versus kids. We are buying these to give as gifts!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $19.99

    3. A super-adorable mini waffle maker that'll brighten up breakfast (or any meal). It's loved by over 1,700 reviewers!

    A small 4" waffle iron

    Promising review: "I purchased this after seeing lots of Instagram videos and have no regrets! I’ve now had it for a few weeks and love how small but mighty it is. Heats up super fast, not too difficult to clean. Best $10 I’ve spent in a while!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $10+ (available in six colors)

    4. A simple and fun game for all ages, Rummikub – it's a numbers game even for those terrible at math (that would be me). Our grandparents taught us how to play and now it comes out at every family event!

    Promising review: "This is such a fun game! Those age 10+ in our house love this game. My husband and I play it together once the kids are in bed too! It’s a bit challenging to get the hang of but I like that it actually makes you think!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $17.99

    5. A KitchenAid stand mixer you'll find a new use for every day. You can seriously up your banana bread game or shred cooked chicken in an instant — this can do it all.

    A teal blue stand mixer with paddle attachment and silver mixing bowl

    Promising review: "During quarantine, I was reunited with my love for baking. Naturally, a KitchenAid was on the top of my list. I was hesitant to purchase because the price is steep. But after having used it, I regret nothing. It’s absolutely fabulous for whipping up buttercream frosting!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $379.99 (available in four colors)

    6. And a pasta roller attachment for the KitchenAid mixer. Trust me — flour and eggs combined into homemade pasta tastes SO much better than the restaurant, because it's made with love.

    KitchenAid stand mixer with pasta maker, with pasta rolling through

    Promising review: "Wonderful attachment!! I’ve used the hand-cranked pasta makers in the past, which make a great pasta without having to knead the dough by hand. But, they rarely stay in place while feeding the dough through and cranking at the same time. This KitchenAid attachment is the best of both worlds. So easy to install and fun to use! The cleanup was a breeze, too. All I needed to do was wipe with a damp cloth. It comes with a tiny stiff brush if pasta needs to be cleaned out of the grooves, but I haven’t needed to use it yet. I don’t think my family will ever want to eat store-bought pasta again. It’s a perfect addition to my KitchenAid collection." —Target reviewer

    Price: $199.99

    7. A coffee table with a lift top and caster wheels you and your family can play endless board games on or move aside for an intense game of charades.

    A dark wood coffee table with metal frame, lift top, and caster wheels

    Promising review: "This table works perfectly in our living room. We have it in front of a reclining sectional so the casters on the bottom make it easy to move out of the way when we want to stretch out. The lift top is awesome for when you want to eat and or drink while watching a show. Plenty of space on top for putting together Legos or puzzles. The bottom shelf is a nice bonus for storing games or magazines. An all-around great purchase." —Target reviewer

    Price: $479.99

    8. A Pop It toy for kids to keep hands busy with the joy of popping Bubble Wrap — and it never ends! A perfect toy to take on the go, too, since there are no little pieces to get lost.


    Promising review: "I didn't have a clue about this toy. I gave them to two 4-year-old boys. The boys were thrilled and knew how to play. Kept the children occupied for hours." —Target reviewer

    Price: $7.99

    9. A metallic bar cart with glass shelves and wine holders, because every home needs a spot for at-home happy hours.


    Promising review: "I am overall very happy with this bar cart. Lots of room for storage and styling, the color of the cart is a muted gold, which I think looks nice in a home without being overbearing. The mirrored glass is good quality and the wire rack is well assembled to hold your closed bottles of wine. Overall the look is really attractive. My only nitpick is that the metal part of the cart does scratch easily. Be careful putting it together." —Target reviewer

    Price: $250.74 (available in two colors)

    10. The What Do You Meme? family game that'll keep everyone laughing. Take your favorite memes and match them with the funniest caption to win!

    Promising review: "I took this game to meet up with friends and play. We had kids from 7 years to 13 years and the parents. It was a hit. We laughed all evening playing this together. There are plenty of fart jokes to keep the kids laughing and enough humor for the parents too. Our friends liked it enough to go out and buy their own copy." —Target reviewer

    Price: $19.99

    11. A hanging macramé chair to make any space feel cozy, luxurious, and fun, indoors or out.

    A white macrame hanging chair

    Promising review: "Love this new chair! It's built very well and comfortable, too. To hang it, you will need two large ring screws and two large metal clips." —Target reviewer

    Price: $79.99

    12. An electric fireplace TV stand with storage cabinets. This heater will make your next family movie night extra cozy, guaranteed.

    Promising review: "Love this TV stand! The assembly instructions were somewhat easy to follow, but make sure you do it to a tee, otherwise it won’t go together easily. The fireplace is gorgeous and pumps out a considerable amount of heat for the size." —Target reviewer

    Price: $328.99+ (originally $469.99+; available in seven finishes)

    13. A Jumanji board game to play the game right out of the movie — but we promise this one won't send you to the jungle for 30 years or tear down your house with stampedes and floods.


    Promising review: "This game is great! The details are simply amazing! Adults and kids both can enjoy this game. The electronic element really adds a movie-like quality to it. There are even challenges that makes the game more interactive and fun, especially for kids when they see their parents act like a lion, etc. It also doesn't take a really long time to play, which is a plus. This is a great addition to family game night!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $49.99

    14. A detailed coloring book featuring your favorite cities from across the world, so you and your kiddos can travel without even leaving your couch.

    Family Feud dry erase board with game answers

    Promising review: "We had a good time playing this both with our family and on couples game night. Some of the answers are crazy so not sure younger kids could participate (it's just like the TV show). I like having a different type of game to play besides a million variations of the same card game. The dry-erase board is nice to keep track on." —Target reviewer

    Price: $14.99

    16. A giant piano dance mat to keep kids dancing and making their own music for hours — and adults might not be able to resist a try!

    giant piano dance mat with letter for music notes

    Promising review: "I thought my 8-year-old son would really enjoy this musical mat, and he does, but I think I might have more fun with it. Whenever I hear him start playing on it, I end up taking it over and have to remember to give him and his friends their turn. So much fun to jump and play a tune. It's not as easy for us older folks as the kids make it look but well worth the effort!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $34.99 (originally $39.99)

    17. A 50" smart-TV with 4K Crystal Display to make every image as sharp and clear as possible. Featuring, of course, all the streaming services that your family couldn't live without.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this game. I’ve been a fan of Mario Party since the N64. This one is fun for kids and adults. The mini games are nostalgic and I love the boards. Graphics are great. Lots of fun. Glad I bought it."—Target reviewer

    Price: $59.99

    19. A pair of wireless headphones you or your kiddos can use to listen to crystal-clear movies, play video games, jam out to music, or chat on Zoom calls without being stuck on wires.

    a model with headphones on

    Promising review: "Incredible. Worked right out of the box, fully charged. Comfy and the head size adjusts so smoothly. Couldn’t be happier for such a cheap price tag. Sound is right on par with other more expensive Skullcandy headphones I’ve had over the years." —Target reviewer

    Price: $17.99

    20. A sleek, water-resistant Bluetooth speaker that you can take anywhere in or out of the house, so you can listen to your true crime podcasts without skipping a beat. (Just me?)

    A light blue Bose Bluetooth speaker

    Promising review: "Great sound from a little speaker!! Had my doubts but I love it!! Also love that the cord is a good length. Makes charging easy. Great purchase." —Target reviewer

    Price: $129.99 (available in three colors)

    21. A Roku Express to stream all your favorite shows on any TV. Cable? Never heard of her.


    Promising review: "The best thing I could have purchased for my mom! She doesn’t have cable or anything and doesn’t have a smart-TV. But I installed this in about one minute, got all of her channels and streaming accounts set up in about 10 minutes! I love how it turns on with your TV and it’s super user-friendly. Absolutely love this!!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $29.99

    22. A Ring Fit Adventure game for Nintendo Switch to get everyone off the couch and maybe working up a sweat, but it feels like you're just playing a game! Finally you can get points and defeat villains with your warrior two pose.


    Promising review: "After having a baby, and my husband working from home, we canceled our gym memberships cause of the pandemic. We needed some activity and he bought me this game when I was pregnant, and it was collecting dust. I recently suggested we start using it after the baby goes to sleep at night or really early in the morning. We started slowly but get a really good sweat out of it, really love that we have as a starter for future workouts — at least it got us off the couch. One of the features I like is that you can adjust to the areas you want to work out and the cooldown helps you stretch the areas you worked out the most. It keeps a reading of your workout and gives you tips and suggestions." —Target reviewer

    Price: $79.99

    23. An Amazon Echo Dot with clock display to answer all your burning questions, control your smartdevices, and play your music or podcasts anywhere you want!

    We have one of these in the kitchen and one in the bedroom. With just a couple smart–light bulbs in our lamps, I haven't had to touch a light switch in years.

    Promising review: "This is a great product! The sound quality is great for the money and I would recommend it over the second generation because of the way the speakers are set up. It is a great item to have around your home for listening to podcasts, radio, and music! I love this Amazon Alexa because it is a great product, great for families, homes, and, overall, it is a fun item!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $59.99 (available in two colors)

    24. A Ring video doorbell that connects to your smartphone so you can always keep an eye on your visitors and delivery boxes. We know, it's like every box is a little present you bought for yourself!


    Promising review: "I've hesitated on whether we actually needed this or not, but there is an extra comfort in knowing that there's a watchful eye on your property at all times. I have also loved it for the summer when you are out in your yard and wouldn't hear your doorbell — it's connected to our phone so we've been able to catch deliveries and people before they leave. It's worth the investment and easy to set up and use." —Target reviewer

    Price: $179.99

    25. A vintage-inspired Crosley turntable so you can start collecting records. Even better, this also includes Bluetooth to connect and play music from your smartphone or other devices.

They’re (the child) learning without even realizing it!! My son’s uncle came over and we couldn’t get him to stop playing with it! LOL so awesome and I can’t say enough about this product!" —Target reviewer

    Promising review: "We purchased this game after a trip to Disney! We had no idea that we would love it this much! We have owned it for a year now and play at least once a week. It is our go-to game because it is fun for the adults, teenagers, and 5- and 7-year-olds! I highly recommend for families with varied age groups. Our youngest Is often picked first for teams because she knows many of the movies better than the teens!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $23.99

    Promising review: "I literally cried several times playing this game because we were laughing so hard. My husband and I and our four kids were all engaged, not too hard, not too simple. It's a great game for those who can't sit still, constant drawing, writing, and movement (well, while we sat at the table). I got online right away to leave a review, great game to play while you are locked in the house." —Target reviewer

    Price: $19.99

    31. And a slim but powerful sound bar for a room-filling, true-stereo experience perfect for movies, music, and gaming. Connect your phone or smartdevice with Bluetooth to bring your favorite podcast to life.
