Sure, there are plenty of things at Target you can buy for yourself. But what are some reasonably priced Target finds that help make your time with friends and family more fun?
It turns out there’s quite a lot. We broke out our list into these categories:
Outdoor adventures like hiking, camping, kayaking and fishing are more fun with friends and family.
Whether you’re adventuring into the wilds of a remote state park or just your backyard, a tent is your home away from home.
This hammock is lightweight enough to stow away among your travel gear.
Whether it’s catch and release or it’s finding the day’s fresh dinner, fishing with friends and family gives you plenty of time to tell tall tales.
Traveling to the sea and the sun with the little ones? Don’t forget the underwater adventures.
For those who love collecting memories more than collecting things, discovering new places with friends and family can give you plenty of experiences worth remembering.
When Instagram isn’t enough, this travel journal collects your travel memories with old fashion pen and paper.
Travel bags need to be lightweight enough to go with you everywhere yet flexible enough to carry a wide range of essentials. And being good looking doesn’t hurt.
Baby Wrap Carrier
Whether you’re traveling far or near, your baby enjoys seeing the world too.
Fun at Home
You don’t have to roam far for fun experiences with friends and family.
Hey little adventurer, you could be ziplining through your backyard.
Portable Fire Pit
Portable, woodburning fire pits are kind of like having a campout in your backyard. When the sun goes does, it draws humans like flies.
String lights are one of the simplest ways to transform your backyard into something a little less ordinary.
Nothing says “You’re special!” like receiving a rainbow & gold unicorn invitation to a party.
And nothing brings people together like great food.
Wine decanters seem like such a fantsy-pants accessory. But it works for both wine snobs and the frugal-minded. Help OK wine taste good and good wine taste even better. Smooth out harsher qualities by letting the wine breathe in a decanter before serving to your guests.
Cards Against Humanity
Cards Against Humanity, the “party game for horrible people,” is not for the kids. It can get foul. And for those nostalgic for the era of Saved By The Bell and neon sweaters, add the 90’s expansion pack.
And when the night winds down, send them away with a warm belly full of good coffee.
You know the classics of football, basketball etc. 🏈 🏀⚽ Here are some more games for adults and kids to get out and play.
It’s like bowling. But for your lawn. Actually, lawn bowling can work outdoors on your lawn, at the park, at the beach as well as indoors. Knock ’em down!
Disc golf is kind of like golf but swap a disc for the golf ball, your hand for the clubs and an elevated chain goal for the hole / cup. This Kan Jam disc game is similar to disc golf, but instead of disc golf’s normal chain goal, this offers simple cans.
If you haven’t played badminton since grade school, give it a shot. You might find it to be therapeutically fun.
Bocce ball’s roots go back to ancient games played during the Roman Empire. I’m not sure the exact rules. Something about getting closer to the jack and knocking out the competitor’s balls.
Bean Bag Corn Toss
Everybody loves a bean bag game.
Bob Ross: The Art of Chill Board Game
Want a happy little game with happy little clouds? Bob Ross: The Art of Chill Board Game might be for you. “Earn ‘chill points’ by painting landscape features like Happy Little Trees and Almighty Mountains using colors and brushes from your hand of cards.”
