MOVIE NIGHT IN A BOX
Need a gift for Mother’s Day? Don’t miss this movie night in a box perfect for Mother’s Day.
It’s Mother’s Day looming and you need to give a gift but no idea what? Recently I had to give a gift to a relative and there is nothing that this person needs. I knew they would receive flowers and chocolates so had to get my thinking cap on.
Due to this person’s circumstances who actually suffers from getting out and about, I thought I would give a gift box which contained a movie night. That way they could use their gift on whichever night they wanted.
Off, I went to the shops and started choosing items.
Idea – Movie Night in a box
The film I bought was “Pursuit of Happiness” by Will Smith. I choose this as it’s a good inspirational film which would be enjoyed by anyone. If you are interested in purchasing this, click on the video image below.
I then picked up a beautiful black and gold glitter gift box from the retail shop “the works” This is definitely a gift box that could be reused and it looks quite luxurious.
The box needed lining and I thought black tissue would suit this perfectly. I found the tissue paper in Hallmark and they had plenty of other colours also to choose from.
Whilst pursuing the shops for what other little treats to add I visited “Hotel Chocolat” they sell small caramel chocolates in a pot called “Tiddly pots” bearing in mind I am looking for small items that will fit into the box.
Whilst I was walking around the store I spotted a small bottle of their cocoa Gin. Being a recent fan of Gin I thought this would be a hit. To be honest, it was hard to keep this until her Birthday as I was quite keen to try this myself.
Still needing small items to fit the box, I picked up a small tube of Pringles and also microwave popcorn. The microwave popcorn comes flat packed and didn’t take up much space at all.
My box was now looking complete, I had a movie, chocolate, crisps, popcorn and gin but I still needed something else. There is a shop which I really like at the moment that sells quite quirky bits and bobs called “Tiger” I found a packet of 2 flat packed birthday balloons which are held on plastic sticks. This would suit the birthday box and would take up hardly any space.
I put all of my items together and everything fitted, as a little extra touch I bought a packet of clear Acrylic crystals which I then sprinkled on to the black paper. This really did add a touch of elegance to the box.
In total, the gift cost approximately £20.00 but you really could tailor this to suit any budget. There are so many gift boxes to choose from which also makes this ideal for any gender.
We delivered the gift and her first words after unwrapping was how much she loved the box and to see the smile on her face as she opened the lid to reveal what was hidden in the black tissue paper. It was just so lovely to see how grateful she was and it was a winner!
