Gift ideas for movie lovers

If you have a film fanatic friend or loved one, a silver screen experience or movie night in can be the perfect present. Gift ideas for movie lovers could include treating them to a trip to the flicks or transporting them to a whole new world from the comfort of their own home with a subscription.

There’s a myriad of movie genres and TV programs, so choosing for someone else can be tricky. With a movie gift card, you can give the gift of entertainment while allowing them to choose the films they fancy most.

The big screen

Watching a film on the big screen is an absorbing experience that no streaming device can compete with. Sitting in the dark with a bucket of popcorn and the sights and sounds of the movie filling the theater immerses you in a way that cannot truly be recreated at home.

There are multiple options for lovers of the silver screen when it comes to gift ideas for movie lovers. Treat them to a trip out with gift cards to Cinemark, Marcus, Bow Tie, and AMC cinemas, where they can check out the latest new releases. For that really special someone, you could even spoil them with a Private Watch Party Cinemark gift card for that Hollywood treatment.

Bingeing at home

If you don’t fancy going anywhere, then why not binge-watch your favorite movies and TV shows at home. What could be more relaxing than getting into your PJs, turning down the lights, and snuggling down to watch back-to-back episodes of the latest drama, comedy, or horror series?

Binge-watching releases dopamine – the feel-good hormone – so chilling out with a new series or film release makes us happy. Give the gift of happiness with a gift card for a streaming service, whether it’s Netflix, Sling TV, or Vudu. Find the perfect gifts for movie lovers and keep them glued to their screens.

Going digital

Is your film-loving friend always on the go? One of the best birthday or Christmas gifts for movie lovers on the move could be a gift card for a digital platform. This gives them the freedom to download the films and shows they want to watch and enjoy them at their leisure on their chosen device.

Gift cards for Google Play or Apple let them access everything from the classic releases to big blockbusters straight to their tablet, laptop, home computer, or smartphone, ready to watch at a time convenient to them. With thousands of movies to choose from, including the latest releases, there’s something for everyone.

Make it a night out

Why not make a whole night of it? Thoughtful gifts for movie lovers could combine a cinema trip with a meal and drinks out, giving an entire evening of enjoyment in one. Sharing food with friends before heading to the movie theater to soak up the latest release, then heading out for a drink to discuss it is a great way to bond.

A gift card for a popular restaurant combined with a cinema gift card gives them a whole night out to look forward to. At the Kroger Family of Stores, you can find gift cards for Texas Roadhouse to Red Lobster and Applebee’s. We even have a Happy Holidays Dining eGift card, so they can munch on more than just popcorn.

Make it a night in

The perfect movie night at home needs some great grub to accompany the film. A delivery service gift card is the perfect idea for those who like to relax and watch a movie at home while chowing down on their favorite comfort foods.Your loved ones can have a night off from cooking (and their diet) with gift cards for Grubhub, Uber Eats, and Subway. They’re ideal Christmas gifts for movie lovers for those cold winter evenings when braving the outside world is just too much to handle.
