    Bonjour :)

    I was wondering if there is a French equivalent for the idiomatic phrase stated in the title. It would be used like: "Nice to see you, give my regards to your family," or something along those lines. I looked at a few other threads that contained similar questions, but no one really provided an idiomatic answer, they were simply literal translations.

    An idiomatic expression would be appreciated, merci! :)

    « Meilleures salutations à ta / votre famille » might do the trick.

    Et aussi:
    Donne le bonjour à ta famille
    Ou encore
    Salue ta famille de ma part

    Welcome to the WR forums!

    Embrasse / Salue ta famille pour moi, according to the way you know the person, would work.
    Bonjour chez toi is another option, more familiar (which refers to the series The Prisonner :D).
