Family Game Night Tin
The photo above is my family-game-night-tin. As kids, whenever our family went on camping trips, we would bring this old Jack Daniel’s tin. Inside you will find various games that we played after dinner, with the sunset in the distance. I have a lot of great memories of those camping trips.
So, when my sister got married, I decided to put a game tin together for their wedding gift.
I started with a Jack Daniel’s No. #7 Tennessee Whiskey tin that I found on eBay. You could also use a vintage lunch box, basket, or wooden box with a hinged lid.
Next, I gathered all of our favorite games. Think of games without a board compact and travel well. Now that we are all grown dice, and cards are still among our favorite to play together.
I think this would be a great wedding or family Christmas gift. So, I put together this list so that you can create a game box of your own (memories not included).
This tin has become one of our cherished family traditions and something I hope to share with my own family someday. I hope it gives your family as many great memories as it has mine.
