A popcorn machine ornament to hang on their tree and reminisce on better days like getting off of work, changing into comfy clothes, and meeting your friends at the movies to watch the latest release.

the popcorn ornament


Promising review: “We have a tradition in our home at Christmas. My wife and I buy ornaments for our five kids and each other each year to open and hang on our tree. But not ordinary ornaments — ornaments that are unique and personal. Ornaments like this one. Wow, we have a popper like this in our home and truly feels like a shrunken version of it, and the quality is so high. With actual (appears to be) popcorn that you can shake around inside. Thank you so much for being an awesome part of our family tradition!” —Lee E Alcorn

I’m a huge cinephile so I’m always looking for cool gadgets and gizmos that promise to enhance my cinematic experience . The Cinemood 360 is a huge upgrade for anyone who purchased the older Cinemood edition. It has more streaming options and the picture is clearer and brighter; no need for complete darkness to see the picture. I like to take this little buddy with me during movie night with my nephews. It’s small, which makes it easy for travel and has a built-in speaker (even though I connect it to my Bluetooth for that surround effect). It’s especially nice now during quarantined weekends. We can make our own little ‘movie in the park’ situation, and by park I mean backyard.

Get the Cinemood 360 from Amazon for $399+ (also available in white) or shop the rest of the Cinemood line here.

The socks in the photo represent the films King Kong, Harry Potter, Titanic, and The Professional.

Promising review: “I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of these socks! They are adorable. The designs are exactly as shown, even better I would say. The socks have the perfect thickness to be worn with a loafer or a tennis shoe. They feel great on the feet and are very soft (I washed mine before I wore them so I can’t speak to how they are out of the package). I’ll certainly be a repeat customer.” —Jennifer Campo

A funny mug because they are completely incapable of having a conversation without including a quote from a movie and then asking, “Do you know what that’s from?” And, when you admit that you don’t, they gasp, and follow up with, “You have to watch that movie!” Amirite?

Promising review: “My boyfriend is a movie guru and also really likes posters! I purchased this for him as a present with the intentions of watching every movie on the list together. We have been scratching the movies off as we go and guessing what the image will be right before it is revealed. A really fun gift — and personal too! In terms of quality my poster arrived without any scratches or crinkles. We use a quarter to scratch off the film and we haven’t had any trouble yet. I highly recommend!

A Star Wars popcorn popper to give them the force to make a great bowl of popcorn.

the star wars popper filled with popcorn


Promising review: “This is my first reusable microwave popper and I am disappointed that I waited so long to try one! Per instructions, I spooned out the five tablespoons of kernels and added one tablespoon of oil (I used olive oil). I stayed close for the first use to make sure nothing overcooked. Instructions said two to four minutes. At 2:10 the popping slowed and the lid was lifted slightly — it was ready! The bowl was naturally hot, so I used care to set on the counter and let cool about 45 seconds. Perfect pops! Now that I have the cook time, I may try butter in the future, but i wouldn’t use butter without reducing the oil, there was PLENTY of residual oil in the bowl. If you like popcorn as a healthy snack option, you might be able to swing with a little less than a full tbsp of oil, but I don’t know if the kernels would pop as well. I am extremely happy with this next to the artificial ingredient filled microwave bag options or the hard to clean machines.” —Devi

A reviewer photo of the popcorn machine


Promising review: “This is a wonderful little popcorn maker. I bought it for my boyfriend WHO LOVES POPCORN. He absolutely loves this thing. He wanted that movie theater popcorn flavor. He bought the kernels, seasoning, and oil. He just throws it all into the pot, clicks it on, and waits for it to stop popping to scoop it all out. It make a big bowl full — which is a good serving size for him (a popcorn lover), or sometimes we share the big bowl.” —M. Roy

the trivia game


Promising review: “This game is amazing. My roommate and I have played it everyday since it was delivered. If there were 10 stars it would get 10 stars. The packaging and the cards themselves? Beautiful. The quality of the cards and the directions pamphlet is great. We stop play just to ooh and ahh over the illustrations sometimes LOL. It’s five games in one, but it’s essentially a deck of cards so you can create your own games. I’m so glad I bought this. Also the deck is diverse which I am huge fan of. I mean Pam Grier? Old actors I don’t know? Well-rounded deck for the win.” —Saphire
