Do you have a group of people that you would like to give a Christmas gift to, but you don’t want to spend a ton of money. I put together this movie night gift with items I picked up at Target, and the final cost comes in at just under $3.00.
Here is what you will need to make some of these up:
- 2-Pack Plastic Popcorn cups (Dollar Spot)
- Market Pantry Single Microwave popcorn (10-pack)
- Theater Box Candy
- Redbox Gift Certificate (one-night movie rental)
In the Target Dollar Spot you will want to pick up some of the plastic popcorn containers, make sure you look for the 2-packs, they are a little bit smaller and since there are 2 of them, they end up costing you only $ .50 a piece.
I bought the Market Pantry 10-pack of Microwave Popcorn Singles, since the box was $2.59, it works out to $ .26 each.
Next up, get a theater style box of candy. These run $1.00 at Target.
I bought some e-gift cards from Redbox, so I could put a FREE movie night rental inside of each popcorn container. To do this, you simply send the e-gift card to yourself, and then you can print each one out individually. As a bonus, when you buy and e-gift card you will get an FREE movie rental for yourself. The cost is $6 for 5, so they end up costing $1.20 each.
When I printed out the gift card, I reduced the image to 75%, so it would fit in the popcorn container better.
I took all of the items and added them to the popcorn container. The cost of everything comes in at $2.96.
To finish it off, I wrapped it in cellophane and tied it up with a bow. Cheap, easy and thoughtful!
