Finding The Perfect Birthday Gifts For The Cinephile In Your Life: Ideas For You


When birthdays roll around, you always find yourself in pursuit of those few perfect, special gifts that will make the birthday boy or girl absolutely delighted. However, if that person is a bonafide cinephile who cannot get enough of movies and television, you may find yourself wondering what you can do to get them a gift that will wow them. Get to know some of the gift options that would be ideal for the cinephile in your life and get started in your shopping as soon as possible.

Blu-Ray TV Series or Movies

One of the most thoughtful gifts that you can give to a person who is a cinephile is something to add to their film collection. You can get many complete Blu-Ray TV series cheap as well as movies in stores and online. 

In order to ensure that your gift is perfect for your cinephile loved one, you will have to find out what movies and TV shows they already have in their collection as well as those that they would love to have or re-watch. Get them into a nostalgic conversation about their favorite shows and films from childhood or adolescence that they haven't seen in a while. Once you have a short list of potential choices, you can head out to find those titles.

Find Movie Posters and Memorabilia From Classic Films and Shows

Cinephiles are notorious for having extensive tastes in film and television shows and often believe that the classics are far superior to the majority of modern-day fare. As such, an ideal gift would be something than embraces those beliefs.

If they are a fan of a specific genre like horror, for example, find a movie poster of some of the original monster movies from the 1930s and 1940s. Or, if you are particularly ambitious and ready to do some digging, you can try to find actual set pieces, costumes, or other props from the films and television shows they love. These one-of-a-kind gifts will be memorable and meaningful to the cinephile in your life.

Of course, original pieces may be difficult if not impossible to find. Replicas are also a possibility including life-size movie monsters, or small pieces that resemble the sets and characters of favorite shows and movies.

Now that you have a few ideas of how you can go about finding the perfect birthday gifts for the cinephile in your life, you can get started in your shopping. You will have an amazing gift for the day before you know it.

Midweek Date Night

My husband and I go to a church about thirty minutes from our home. Every Wednesday night, we attend a small group for young, married couples at our place of worship. Recently, one of the couples in this class reminisced about a midweek date night they had not long ago. On the spur of the moment, they decided to go watch a late movie at a local theater. Before entering the theater, they promised each other that they would eat whatever junk food they wanted while watching the movie. They wanted to enjoy one night of delicious movie theater food without worrying about the calories. This sweet couple talked about how this spontaneous date night helped their marriage. On this blog, you will discover the best types of movies to watch during a midweek date night with your spouse.
