Why It’s a Great Gift Idea
While this time of year can be super stressful, your friends might just need a little nudge to take some time for themselves. This Holiday Movie Watching Kit should do just that!
Often I have holiday movies (here’s what to watch on Netflix this year) on in the background when I’m doing other things but this movie kit gift might get her to relax for a few minutes. It’s the perfect stress-management idea for the holidays.
I consider these to be Hallmark Movie Watching Kits because they have the best movies in my opinion. But they would really work for any movie.
You can easily make a bunch of these at once making them a great small gift for office staff, co-workers, teachers, etc.
And while I kept the kits small, you can easily grow the idea into a more elaborate gift with a super soft blanket or movie-watching sweatshirt (see all my gift ideas for Hallmark lovers and add a few of those as well!)
Print out my Hallmark Holiday movie drinking game and slip that in too! A mini bottle of sparkling wine would be a perfect addition.
What to Include
You can include just about anything!
To start, I picked up some muslin bags to put everything in. They look super cute and you don’t have to wrap anything…(lazy).
For me, I’m all about cozy socks, so of course, those had to go in.
Since I also put these holiday movie watching kits together for some of the staff at our elementary school, I left out alcohol.
But it would be super cute to include a small can of champagne or something (because if I’m honest, that’s usually what I’m enjoying when I get the time to watch one of these movies) especially if you include a printout of the drinking game.
I rounded this out with some holiday themed scented candles. It makes the entire gift smell super festive and even if she doesn’t get to stop and watch a movie right away, she’ll be able to smell the candles!
Putting it Together
To put the movie watching kit together, simply place all the gift items in the muslin bags.
I try to put the heaviest items on the bottom of the bag first. And anything edible, I put on the top.
The bags have their own string to cinch the top shut. Just add a cute holiday gift tag and you are ready to gift!
Tips and Tricks
- If you hate giving a gift card for a gift, you could easily add one to this holiday movie watching kit so the recipient has something to open.
- You can make the gift bags all the same or tailor make them to each recipient.
- Hang the Hallmark movie watching kit around the neck of a nice bottle of wine!
