i am so excited to share with you a fun gift idea i put together for our dear friends with a little family of three!
we wanted to surprise our friends with a fun basket including ingredients for a meaningful evening together as a family during the holidays. i quickly thought of a holiday movie night basket!
here's how i created this fun holiday movie night basket for just under $15!
to make your holiday movie basket, gather the following:
- popping corn (we buy ours in bulk so i just grabbed some from our pantry)
- special popcorn toppings
- fun bowls for popcorn
- cash ($3) for a redbox holiday movie
i wanted to personalize the cash instead of just randomly placing it in the basket so i printed off this fun redbox graphic. here's the graphic you can easily print off for your basket. i wrapped the cash in festive paper & glued the redbox graphic to the front.
the cash is a fun way for the family to pick out a new holiday movie or a favorite that's watched year after year!
i found the fun bowls at big lots for $6 & tied the stack with candy cane ribbon.
the kernel season's toppings are from walmart for just under $3 each. there are a ton of toppings to choose from, but i went with the kettle corn flavor - my favorite!
optional: you could even include m&m's or another chocolate treat in your basket for all of those chocolate lovers.
for the popcorn, i filled a clear bag with popcorn kernels & tied it with twine. this is the most economical option, but you could include microwaveable bags if you think it would be easier for the family.
i placed all of the goodies in a basket i already had on hand with happy polka dot tissue paper.
a tag & baker twine tassel made this little basket happy & festive just in time to surprise our dear friends for the holidays!
$0 popcorn already from our pantry
$3 redbox movie
i'd love to read your ideas for gifts for families! what gifts do you put together for the entire family to enjoy?
p.s. last year i made a fun basket for a family with ingredients for making these clay ornaments! this is such a fun activity to do with the entire family!
