1. Movie on Canvas
Scenes from your (or their) favorite flick are condensed into a one-of-a-kind piece of canvas art, with this absolutely amazing gift. Each color line is representative of a scene from your selected movie, and the best part is: you can pick whatever movie you like!

If you’re looking for something unique and priceless, this is it!
PS: Check out the reviews. People who buy this are very happy campers.
2. Popcorn Machine, Movie Theater Style
It’s nearly impossible to watch a movie without the best theater snack: popcorn! In fact, we’re willing to bet it’s scientifically impossible, or at the very least, would be utterly dismal to do so.
Enter in this fabulous popcorn trolley! The whole house will smell amazing as you pass around buttery dishes of salty popcorn.
All you need now is a soda machine and a candy bar!
3. Top 100 Movies Scratch Off Poster
Whether you scratch them off as soon as possible because you just can’t help yourself, or save them to scratch off after you’ve seen them, this poster is super rad!

How cute is this shadow box? Etched with their names and wedding date (or swap the wedding out for a birthday), this is a great gift that will look so nice on a wall near the movie collection.
They can fill it up with souvenirs from travels inspired by films, ticket stubs, or even their own handwritten movie reviews, whatever they like!
Also a good gift for concert and music lovers.
5. We Go Together Like [Lois & Superman / Bella & Edward / Bacall & Bogie / etc.]

Making the decision a little easier and a lot more fun, you can choose from all the genres, like Romance, Drama, Action, Comedy, etc.

Keep track of all the movies you see – whether you loved them or hated them – with this super useful journal.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t watch a film without looking up all the actors on IMDB. This is almost like having your own bunny trail of actors and films at your fingertips!
So next time your spouse says “Hey honey, what was that movie we watched that one time in that one place that had that one guy in it?”, you can confidently flip a couple of pages and answer victoriously.
12. Movie Poster Cards
These movie poster cards are just perfect for collectors. They can be framed and rotated out for instant wall décor, left out as bookmarks, or used as coasters.
For a creative use, send them as postcards when traveling (you know you’re going back to the hotel to watch more movies anyways, so it fits with the theme).
Lots of films to choose from, and you can add customization as well.

If you’re a Labyrinth fan, you will absolutely squeal with delight over these creepy door knockers.
They will be put up so fast they’ll think goblins did it… Super fun for those who love all things David Bowie, Jim Henson, and babes in striped pajamas.

15. Movie Nights Menu Cook Book
Dinners and drinks inspired by your favorite films? What a great idea! This Movie Night Menus book puts date night on a whole other level, when you are sipping cocktails from classic Hitchcock films, or planning dinner around My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
