Date Night Movie Gift Basket Idea {& Printable}

What do you get for someone who has everything?

This is where you have to dig deep and get creative.

Well, not really.

But if you’re stumped, keep reading because I have a very simple solution for you to do.

A few months ago, I shared on my Facebook status I was going to give each family member a homemade gift this year.  My sister and her husband love going to the movies, so I created a Date Night Movie Gift Basket for them.

Here’s how I did it:

First, I hit up my local store to find most of my supplies:

Movie Date Night Gift Idea

  • Popcorn
  • Caramel Popcorn
  • Linen Basket
  • Theater Boxes of Candy
  • Candy Corn {or other favorite treats}
  • Homemade Peppermint Mocha In A Jar {get recipe here}
  • Hershey Candy Bars Wrapped in Candy Holders
  • Tissue Paper
  • Festive Straws
  • Popcorn Boxes
  • Pack of Note Paper
  • Two Small Jars for Drinking
  • Red Box Date Night Printable {get below}
  • Red Box Codes

Assembling this gift basket is pretty straightforward. Since you’re mostly buying everything from the store, just pack it in how you see fit.

I started with layering the tissue paper inside the basket and around the sides.

Then I started adding in all of my supplies. I put the popcorn boxes in first. Then I added the candy, Homemade Hot Chocolate in a Jar, packaged popcorn, caramel popcorn, straws and drinking glasses.

I added the Red Box Date Night coupons on top.

Before I placed the Date Night coupons inside the basket, I added the promotional codes given to me by . Purchasing e-gift cards and promo code bundles are the perfect gift idea for people who have everything, movie lovers, your babysitter/nanny, teachers, significant other, kids, etc. It’s a gift idea you can easily personalize.

Another gift idea tied to movies is purchasing a Redbox Play Pass. Here’s how it works:

  • You get a free one-night rental for every 10 rentals.
  • A free one-night rental on your birthday.
  • A free one-night rental on your annual Redbox Play Pass renewal date.
  • Surprise rewards and exclusives.

This is the gift that keeps on giving. Find out more about the Redbox Play Pass and sign up here.
