    I always buy something that the whole family will enjoy.  There are a number of things depending how much you want to spend:

    - Singing Christmas Santa - it's so enjoyable
    - Cahones the Singing Chihuahua - hilarious
    - box of chocolates
    - wine pack, red & white with cheese & crackers
    - movie certificate or card for the whole family
    - family parlor games

    My daughter just got the Singing Golf Santa for our family to enjoy.. we just sit there are giggle, so enjoyable.

    I hope this help

    Have a nice day,

    you have complete freedom here, get something that they would really appreciate but something that is not so common, i mean wine and chocolate will be nice but after a second will be forgotten. i wrote a hub on surprise and unusual gifts if you want to check that out...

    There are quite a few gifts you can give to a family, but you should gift them with something useful that the whole family can enjoy. I have a post about some original gifts that go from games and piggy banks to dog training secrets (which is quite an original gift for a family). Here's the link, I hope you enjoy it. … Everything

    If you mean a host family in that you are staying with a family in another country, then I would suggest something that encompasses the country that you are from.  So if you are American, then you could give your host family something like cookies from a popular American brand like Pepper Ridge Farm.  Or maybe something iconic like baseball.

    Something you can afford and something you really want them to have and experience.  Gifts are about what you as the giver would like for the person to whom you are giving it to experience. Maybe it's a particular type of food from a different region of the country or the world. Maybe it's a keepsake which will remind them of you each time they see it.  Once you make up your mind what you want them to have, your problem is solved. WB

    Something that they can appreciate and something that is fit for your budget. Something simple but useful.
