It is important for me to spend time with my family.
You could also say: It is important to spend time with my family.

If you say "It is important..." then the next part would be the infinitive.

E.g. It is important to eat a healthy breakfast.
It is important to exercise regularly.
It is important to wash your hands.

As said by William, to spend is correct.
Note however, you could start a sentence by saying for example: Spending time with my family is what I prefer to do the most at the weekend.
In the gerund here, it denotes an activity.
