7 holiday gift ideas for movie buffs


Can't figure out what to get your favorite film buff for the holidays? Don't worry, we have you covered with fun picks for movie fanatics from cool books to useful subscriptions.

1. Movie Streaming Subscription: Sure it's an obvious choice, but if your movie fan doesn't have a Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu account, you might want to look into hooking them up with one. The streaming services give fans a chance to catch up on flicks they haven't seen or oldies they may have missed.

3. Old Navy Star Wars Shirts: For gents counting down to the release of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" on Dec. 18, you might want to snag a couple Star Wars memorabilia tees from Old Navy. The T-shirts feature nostalgic images from storm troopers to the iconic Star Wars logo.

5. Snoopy Havaianas Sandals: Snoopy snuck back into our hearts this holiday season with the release of the new "The Peanuts Movie," and any fans of the adorable dog and his pal Charlie Brown might like a set of Havaianas sandals with sweet Snoopy prints. Our personal favorite was the men's set with the loveable duo on each sandal.

6. Movie Tickets: What movie lover doesn't enjoy heading to the big screen? Pick up a gift certificate from retailers like AMC, Century or Fandango or buy gift cards to those retailers on Amazon and let your movie fan pick a film they want to see.
