Christmas may be almost here, but there’s no need to panic that you’re only halfway through your list. In the past few years, “household gifts” have escalated in popularity: singular presents that delight the entire group. Whether family means your nuclear unit, your roommates, or the friends you return to time and time again, an all-for-one gift can give you a deeper way to connect and enjoy each other’s company—and avoid the stress of tailoring a purchase to each person.

The best part? You can splurge on something more expensive as a family gift, because you’re not buying individual items for each person, meaning you can get a high-quality investment that will last your home for years. We’ve rounded up 12 favorites below for easy one-stop gifting that will arrive before Christmas.

The Best Household Gifts for the Entire Family:

WiFi Bluetooth Projector TOPTRO TR23

Toptro TR23 Outdoor Projector

Each Thanksgiving, my mama loves dragging out an outdoor projector, throw blankets, and some hot toddies to the back porch to watch college football as a family. The projector also reappears for Christmas movies, holiday soirées, and more. The projector is a bang-for-your-buck purchase that’s small enough to cart around but powerful enough to have fantastic sound quality and crispness. So you can see the ref’s mistakes that much better.

Ooni Koda 12 Gas Powered Pizza Oven

Ooni Koda Gas Powered Pizza Oven

The Ooni pizza oven exploded in popularity over the past year or so. Families were realizing that at-home pizza could be easier, healthier than takeout versions, and even fun to cook all together. The reason people opt for this outdoor oven instead of just, well, your standard convection? The Ooni makes pro-level slices in under a minute flat, and it’s relatively lightweight and compact.

Luxury can mean elevating and improving a daily ritual, like a shower. This eco-friendly showerhead feels like it’s right out of a five-star resort spa. A decadent spa-mist setting slider allows each member of the family to customize their spray, while a color-coded LED light indicates when the shower is hot enough to get in, a godsend on a chilly winter morning. It’s also Bluetooth connected should you desire to track your water usage. In the past two years of being a professional product reviewer, this showerhead has consistently been my favorite product—no hyperbole—and immediately adds bliss to any household.
