Creative Ideas for a Movie Themed Birthday Gift Basket

Give a birthday gift basket to a movie lover that includes some of the things your friend loves the most about movies. You can specify the theme of the gift, if you are the birthday host handing out gift baskets to your guests, by gifting items based on movies about birthdays. Assume that your friends own the movies themselves, and get creative with the theme.


Keep movie memories with you in your car or computer by compiling a soundtrack CD or buying the soundtrack to a favourite movie for the gift basket. In keeping with a "birthday" theme for the basket, choose the soundtrack to "Sixteen Candles," or a movie that's as old as the birthday boy or girl.


No film viewing experience is complete without the perennial movie-watching favourite, microwave popcorn or seasoned corn kernels for hob popping. Include a package of these in all of your baskets.

Disposable Camera

Offer the gift-basket holder the opportunity to capture all of the evening's exciting events on film. Take photos with your friends at the party. Keep the night in mind forever through the power of celluloid.

Movie Foods

Include a food popularised by a movie in your basket. While including fried green tomatoes may be an appropriate way to celebrate "Fried Green Tomatoes," Bertie Bott's Jelly Beans from "Harry Potter" might be easier to fit into the basket. Or you could include a food item that your friends might actually eat.


Top off each gift basket with a personalised Oscar Award. Party stores and gift shops sell plastic Oscars with inscriptions such as "Best Boyfriend of the Year" or "Best Performance in a Basketball Game." Personalize these trophies for each gift basket recipient.
