We came up with the perfect last-minute gift idea for anyone on your list, especially the movie lover! How many of us have those hard-to-buy-for person in our lives? This movie themed gift basket is so easy to throw together and will be loved by anyone you give it to!
Any basket will do in a pinch but we were lucky to find this plastic popcorn bucket that works nicely as a base to start with. Most of our popcorn bucket space is taken up with a comfy, warm fleece blanket. An off-white or soft yellow blanket would have given this basket an awesome “popcorn” look, but we had a special guy in mind for this one and knew he would prefer grey. We picked a blanket we knew he would be able to use in his dorm room and not be made fun of for snuggling up in something yellow! 🙂
Some items we added to our Movie Lover’s Basket include:
1 super soft, warm, cozy blanket
2 microwave popcorn packages
2 already popped popcorn snacks,
several different types of candy,
1 popcorn sprinkle flavoring
Oh yes! Don’t forget the movies!
Depending on how much you want to spend on your basket, you could add a few DVD’s. We threw in a couple of movies that we knew would be a hit for the receiver. Depending on who you put your basket together for, you could branch out into different genres.
1.) A family themed basket could include more snacks and a few age appropriate movies.
2.) The boyfriend basket could include a few thrillers and some beer.
3.) Your neighbor might like a romantic comedy, chocolates, and a bottle of wine.
The possibilities are endless and every gift basket can be personalized for the lucky people you are giving them to. After all, what kind of gift would it be if you weren’t putting some thought into it and making it perfect for the receiver? 😉
We had as much fun putting this Movie Lover’s Themed Gift Basket together as we hope the recipient has with it. Here’s to hours of entertainment with your favorite people this Christmas!
