These days familial units come in all shapes and sizes (five grandparents, a step-parent, and a sister by marriage). And though we believe the more, the merrier — we couldn’t find a family tree where the whole brood could perch.
Thankfully, JHill Design’s customizable family tree print lets you add extra slots to accurately depict your complicated clan. The artists there have yet to encounter a combo they couldn’t make work (you hear that, Brady Bunch?) but do ask that you limit your unique lineage to four generations (for space’s sake).
The beautifully designed keepsake is printed on archival paper with two color options: orange, green, and blue or orange, pink, and yellow. Got good penmanship? Fill in the blanks on your own. If not, order a personalized version with the information already printed. And let someone else worry about keeping the names straight.
Available online jhilldesign.com, $50-$85.
