Do you have a film buff on your list this year? Here are  few gift ideas to keep them happy!

  1. Movie Passes, that’s a given! Let them enjoy whatever movie is coming out next that they want to see! You can even add on a dollar value so they can hit up the concession stand!
  2. Goodie pack full of candies, popcorn and flavouring as well as chocolate and nuts! The perfect pack for any movie lover to have a marathon at home!
  3. Subscription to an at home streaming service like Netflix. This allows them to watch whatever they want, whenever they want at home!
  4. Do they have an all time favourite actor? Why not grab a bunch of their movies and give them a gift you know they will love! (Do some research and see if you can find movies they were in before they were a “big hit”)!
  5. Film of the month club subscription, there are so many to choose from! Comedy, Indie, Horror etc. This is a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year.
  6. Does your city (or a near by one) do a film festival? Grab some tickets to a show or two and gift those! Who knows, they might even get to see their favourite actor in person!
  7. Movie Poster of their favourite film, framed and ready to hang in their favourite movie watching spot!
