Family History Gift Ideas

Family Tree Memory Keeper

This is a popular notebook to help keep your history and stories organized. Amazon says it includes:

  • Dozens of fill-in pages to record all your essential family information.
  • Convenient paperback format for writing and photocopying pages.
  • Space for mounting photographs.
  • Maps to mark your family’s migration routes.
  • Tips for researching your family history.
  • A comprehensive list of additional resources.


Personalized mugs like this one are always fun and show that person you were truly thinking about them when you picked out their gift.

Genealogy Prints

This is just one of many clever and witty printables you can purchase and frame for any family history buff.

Graphic Tee

Statement tees are so popular now. Show off what you love- just by wearing a shirt!

Family Tree Wood Sign


I would love to own one of these myself! Look how gorgeous this wood sign is! I love how it has all the names of your family on it.
