What is a Movie Night Gift Basket?

Movie night gift baskets are the perfect gift for any movie lover. They include all of the delicious snacks that the recipient loves and can be customized to their taste. Plus, they’re perfect for families because everyone can enjoy them together!

How to Make a Movie Night Gift Basket

To make a movie night gift basket, you’ll need a few things:

-A box or basket to put the gift in

-A movie theme or genre

-Snacks that fit the theme: for example, if you’re giving the basket as a family movie night gift, you might include snacks like popcorn, candy, and sodas. If you’re giving it as a gift for someone who loves watching horror movies, you might include snacks like chips and salsa, cookies, and soda.

What to Put Inside a Gift Basket

When putting together a movie night gift basket, it’s important to include a variety of different snacks. A good assortment of snacks will ensure that everyone can find something they like. Some of our favorite movie night snacks include candy, popcorn, and treats like:

  • M&Ms
  • Reese’s Pieces
  • Skittles
  • Dots
  • Buncha Crunch
  • Twizzlers
  • Sweedish Fish
  • Raisenets
  • Sour Patch Kids

When it comes to popcorn for the movie basket, you have a few options. First, you could buy individual bags of pre-popped popcorn like Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop or Pirate’s Booty. Or, you could include microwavable popcorn so they could have fun and make it themselves.

One new option is to buy popcorn directly from the theater. Many theaters now sell bags filled with pre-popped buttered popcorn, which is a nice option if you want to support your local theater.

If you’re looking for some savory snacks, we recommend including:





Miniature boxes of cereal like Honey Nut Cheerios or Apple Jacks

Don’t forget the drinks! We like to include a few bottles of soda or water inside the basket as well (or maybe a bottle of wine if they’re of age!). This can make for an extra special movie night!

We also like to include either DVDs of their favorite movie, or gift cards for streaming services like Netflix or Disney+. If your movie lover prefers to go to the theater, you could also include gift cards to their favorite movie theater. If you’re planning to give this movie basket to the whole family, make sure to include enough tickets for everyone!
