Popcorn Machine


Is there really a gift any more appropriate for a movie enthusiast than getting them their very own popcorn machine?

Make no mistake about it, this thing is downright awesome. The 3 switches at the top allow it to warm, heat up, and even stir the popcorn while the tempered safety glass ensures that it doesn’t get too hot. It comes with a ½ cup measuring cup, salt shaker, tablespoon and scooper so that you can make it anyway you like.

Plus, the high capacity design allows it to make up to 3 gallons of popcorn per batch which is incredible (certainly more than enough to make these!)  I personally own this one and everyone loves to use it when we have movie night.

Whether it’s a gift for yourself or someone else, this will be a household favorite regardless.

Movie Posters


If they’re a person who’s big into movies, then a movie poster is something that they’ll no doubt appreciate. Luckily you have a lot of options since there’s a countless number of them out there. Think of one of their favorite movies or shows, and try to get a few based around that.

If you really want to blow their minds, then you can kick it up a notch and get a signed poster from one of their favorite actors. If you manage to pull that off, they’ll be indescribably happy.

Vinyl Record Wall Clock


Besides adding an amazing sense of decorum to any room, this vinyl record wall clock makes an amazing gift for well…just about anybody really! What makes it particularly unique is the fact that it’s made from an actual vinyl record so everything looks and feels authentic.

Plus it’s not too big at 12 inches across so you’ll have plenty of room for it.

You can’t go wrong with this one.

Metal Glass Accent Table


This glass table is another unique piece of decorum as it takes the form of a movie reel sat atop a tripod. The frame as well as the legs are made out of cast iron, and the glass is thick, making it very durable. This makes for a great piece anywhere.

From your living room to a dedicated theater room, this table adds style in a way you wouldn’t expect it to.

Movie Lover Unique Tabletop Wine Holder


If you know someone who loves to have a drink while they watch their favorite content, then this wine holder in the shape of a movie reel would be a great gift for them. No doubt they’d get a kick out of it.

Plus it’s made from 100 percent recycled material for the environmentally conscious out there.

Della 3.2 cu ft Freestanding Mini Refrigerator


What good is home theater without some amazing snacks to go with it? And what good are those snacks if you’ve got nowhere to put them? This convenient mini refrigerator solves that very dilemma. A mini fridge offers a level of convenience that makes you wonder how you ever went all this time without one.

These are perfect for dorm rooms, bed rooms, movie rooms, or even the living room as you can store all of the food you don’t want others eating in there instead. This one even has a little freezer compartment at the top for your frozen items as well.

This would make an awesome gift for someone who doesn’t feel like walking to the actual fridge and wishes there was a smaller one closer by.

I know I can’t be the only one right?

A Universal Remote


Universal remotes make an awesome gift for anyone that’s tired of constantly having to switch remotes for all of their different devices. It definitely offers a new level of convenience as you can use one device to control nearly every electronic component in the house.

Then there are even some that actually have the ability to control parts of your house! How cool is that?

Now when it comes to choosing, you have a lot of different options which can complicate things admittedly, but luckily I did an article that talks about how to do exactly that. Highly recommend you go check that out since I even give a few recommendations on remotes that I’ve tried out and liked as well (namely the Sony RMVLZ620 which I dubbed as the best value)

That should make things way easier for you.

A Sling TV Subscription

A Sling TV subscription would no doubt make someone extremely happy. Sling TV is an amazing monthly service that lets you watch hundreds of thousands of shows and movies along with live TV even on the go. This can basically be thought of as an alternative to cable since you aren’t bound by any contracts.

Plus you can use it on your mobile device or tablet which is perfect for those individuals with long commutes that want something to watch. There’s honestly a lot more benefits to it than that, so check out the article I did that awares you on absolutely everything that you need to know about it.

A Roku


A Roku is one media device that would certainly make an awesome present for any cinema buff. Basically it’s a device that connects with your TV that instantly gives you access to hundreds of thousands of movies and shows all at your fingertips.

There are a few different types, so the one you’ll want to get for that person is going to depend on what they prioritize. I talk about that more here.

A Chocolate Fountain


If you like to pig out during movie watching, what better way to do it than with something completely covered in chocolate?

A chocolate fountain is the epitome of the gift that keeps on giving since there’s a ton of things you can make with it. And unless you’re allergic or on a diet, seriously, who doesn’t enjoy chocolate? This is the exact one that I use and it works fantastically. Super easy to use too.

Whoever you get this for, it’s sure to make their day.

A New Subwoofer


If anybody you know is a home theater enthusiast, then they’ll tell you that one of the most exciting things about this hobby is getting a new piece of equipment. Of that, a new subwoofer ranks high at the top of the list.

So if you were able to get them a new sub, then suffice to say they would freak out (in a good way) The one that I would recommend right off the bat for an average room would be the Polk PSW111 since it’s an insane value for what it’s capable of.

But it may not be suitable in the largest of rooms. Luckily there’s a few more that would work if that’s the case, which I go into more detail in here.

A New Pair Of Headphones


Now there’s a lot of reasons why a pair of headphones would make an awesome present, but one of the main reasons why would have to be for night time watching when it’s too late to have the speaker system on.

A good pair of headphones can arguably be just as immersive, plus they’re versatile enough to be useful in other situations such as simply listening to music or gaming.

Here are the top 3 pairs that I feel would be incredible to receive, along with an article I did on what you should look for in a good pair.

Home Theater Headphones Are A Good Idea

Sony MDRXB650BT/B Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones

 

Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones

 

 

An HDMI Cable


As simple and strange as it may sound, I guarantee if you were to get a home theater buff an extra HDMI cable, they would highly appreciate it. Cables are a precious commodity as they say, and whether they get lost or damaged, chances are they could always use another one.

In terms of the best one to get, the ones listed below would definitely be a great choice as I use them and they’ve lasted for quite a while now. Plus they support all the latest formats like 4K and HDR.

A Soundbar


If you know someone that’s big into movies, but they can’t have a 5.1 surround sound setup for whatever reason, then a soundbar may be just what they’re looking for. Just like the name suggests, a sound bar is literally a singular row of smaller speakers from which sound comes out.

This makes for a great alternative to surround sound because of the fact that it not only saves space, but is a lot simpler to set up. In terms of which one to get, you have a lot of options; but the one I’ve listed below is my personal favorite.

It has great detail and really impactful bass, which makes movies an absolute blast to watch. You can also read the article included below that details a few other great ones that would work too.

Cinema Light Box with Letters


Remember those old movie theater signs where they would change the letters inside to let you know what’s playing?

Well this fun little cinema box is a callback to that era, only miniaturized.

Whether you decide to use it as decoration, or a festive piece for your theater room, the fact is, is that it definitely adds a certain cinematic vibe to the room. What’s great is that it comes with 192 letters, symbols, and even emojis, so you really can customize it however you want to.

It’d be really hard not to want this.

Ambesonne Movie Theater Shower Curtain


Now this one was too funny not to include on the list.

You know how in older movies there would be that cinematic count down before it actually started? Well it’s pretty much that but on a shower curtain. It looks really cool in person.

But a really nice thing about this one is that it’s waterproof and guaranteed to not fade, so no worries when it comes to quality. It’s also about 75 inches.

I guarantee if you got this for somebody, they would find it both hilarious and useful.

Classic Movie Clapboard Black Area Rug


This is another great one that falls on the more decorative side of things. This clapboard themed rug is perfect for just about anybody who enjoys anything cinema related. It measures 60 x 39 inches, and is made from a very soft cotton.

Quiet on the set!

Cinema Personalized Home Decor Design Throw Pillow Cover


This set of 4 movie themed pillow cases would make an awesome gift for any obsessed movie lover.
They’re made out of 100 percent cotton, and measure 18×18 inches. Not much to say about these other than the fact that they look amazing. Definitely get them.

A Bean Bag Chair


I can guarantee you that if you gave someone a beanbag chair, they would be incredibly hyped, no doubt about it. Not sure what it is, but there’s just something about them that makes lounging on them incredibly fun.

What’s interesting about this one though is that instead of beans, it uses a special memory foam that contours to your body. So not only is it softer than the traditional kind, it can adapt to your body shape, giving you the most comfort possible.

Plus it comes in a bunch of colors, so there’s something there for everybody.

A Bookshelf Speaker


So this one might be obvious, but if they’re big into home theater, why not just give them a new pair of speakers?

This is an extremely safe bet to go with because honestly, who wouldn’t mind some brand new ones? Bookshelf speakers are speakers that are small enough to be placed on tables or shelves, that still manage to provide a loud, yet quality sound.

There’s also a million different ones to choose from, so If you need a few ideas, then check this out.

High End Theater Chair


If you managed to surprise somebody with this, they would go absolutely nuts, no joke.

A legitimate theater chair is the ultimate gift that you can be sure they wouldn’t see coming. What’s even better about this one is the fact that it’s actually a row of 2, meaning you’d get to relax right along with them.

There’s a stainless steel cup holders for your drinks, gel infused memory foam for insane comfort, storage compartments in the arm rests, and blue LED under lighting which just looks downright incredible. There’s even a dock on each arm that lets you add additional accessories like phone, tablet, and wine glass holders.

Not to mention they’re genuine leather, power recliners with customizable settings. You’d never want to leave it honestly.

This is essentially the upper echelon of comfort and style.

Highly recommend it.

A Portable Projector


Here’s something you probably don’t see everyday; a portable projector!

This is the ideal gift for the individual that’s always on the go but still enjoys watching content on the big screen. What’s really cool about this thing is that you can actually pair it with your smartphone and watch content from there on the expanded screen.

It even has built in speakers to really make it feel like you’re at the movies. So it has all of the capabilities that you’d expect from a high end projector while being light enough to take with you.

It doesn’t get much better than that honestly.

Custom Name Home Theater Wall Decal


What better way to make an enthusiast’s day than giving them a custom wall decal saying (insert name)’s theater room? Well not exactly that, but you get the idea. You can technically make it say anything, and even make it any color.

Now all you have to do is subtly sneak in conversation somehow what they would hypothetically want.

Disney Mickey Mouse Mug Warmer


This mug warmer featuring Mickey Mouse is a fantastic option for the coffee drinkers in your life. By placing the cup on the warmer, It manages to keep drinks warm indefinitely. This is great for the people who leave their drink to do something else, but don’t want it to get cold in the mean time.

And you don’t have to use it for just coffee either; things like tea, hot cocoa, and even soup are fair game too!

When it’s plugged in, there’s a small Mickey icon on the front that illuminates to let you know it’s on. It even comes with a 10 Oz ceramic mug so they’ll actually be able to test it out immediately, right out of the box.

If you really want to charm somebody, this is the way to do it.

A Movie


If all else fails, and you have no idea what to get, then a movie is an easy way to get out of that dilemma. I mean that’s technically what this list revolves around right, so why not get them a few more?

If there was one that they’ve talked a lot about recently, then that’s a sure fire sign that that’s one of the ones they want most. If you have no idea what movie to get them, then you can always check out this list.

Bonus Mention, A Video Game Console!


If they’re even remotely into video games, then a video game console would be a fantastic option for them. The big 3 as of right now are the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch. Which one they prefer is going to depend on a lot of things though, so this should help you decide.
