Today's Reelz Gift Suggestions: What to Get the Movie Lover Who Loves an Outing to the Cineplex
12.04.12 by Mandy
It's easy to find Christmas gifts for Potterphiles, Trekkers, or Jedi wannabes, but it can be tougher to find a good gift for a person who is just generally a fan of movies. Sure, you can try to just pick up a popular DVD or Blu-ray, but there's always a chance it will be appreciated as much as Ralphie's pink bunny suit. In order to make your gift giving easier, we'll be offering daily suggestions on what to give the movie lover on your list. Today's gift selections are for movie lovers who prefer going out to the theater to watching a movie at home.
The Practical Option
For a movie fan who loves the experience of going to the actual movie theater, a theater gift certificate is a practical and obvious choice. If you're not sure which local multiplex is your cinephile's favorite, a Fandango gift certificate is always a safe option. To make this gift a little more personal, maybe throw in a couple of boxes of the the movie lover's favorite candy in the extra-large theater size in a box along with the tickets.
The Extravagant Option
If a theater gift certificate seems a little too generic, impersonal, or secret-Santa-esque, another less obvious (and more expensive) option would be a movie subscription. MoviePass is a new service that offers monthly subscriptions to theaters nationwide. Right now, gift subscriptions are available for one month, three months, or one year. This is a solid gift option for anyone who loves movies, and especially good for anyone who loves new, gadgety iPhone apps as well as movies.
