Popular Movies & TV Shows Gift Ideas for 2011
Here are the movies and TV shows that are among the most popular this year as voted by us. Some are a little more appropriate for children, while others are more for adults, we went for a nice blend.
When buying movies for as a gift, you need to bear in mind if the recipient has a Blu-Ray player, what kind of movies do they like and if can it be watched more than once. There’s nothing less enjoyable than receiving the same movie twice or getting a Blu-Ray when you only have a DVD reader. I also think that complete collections, all the Indiana Jones movies for example, always make nice gifts as there are usually a ton of ‘bonus features’.
Once again, we’ve searched across multiple trusted stores to find the best prize on the following DVD’s. Don’t hesitate to participate in our giveaway and to give us more gift ideas of movies and TV shows.

More Gifts Ideas
If you think that the person already has a vast DVD collection and you’re not able to sneak around to see which one they don’t own yet, here are a few more suggestions. First, gift card for a theater is always a good idea as theater tickets and food cost so much these days and it’s not getting any cheaper. And if you choose to get them a Cineplex gift card for example, it means that they can also use it on any other products. And since it is now possible to shop online at Cineplex.com, they could decide to buy movies instead. You can get a Cineplex gift card online and choose the card design plus personalize it with a message. Five minutes and you’re done with gifts.
If buying a gift for kids, you can also decide to buy other products related to the movies. For example, you could buy the car toys from Cars 2 or a pajama from their favorite movie. I wouldn’t risk this with adults but it always works with kids!
Today get a chance to win a Amazon gift card of $80. Leave us a comment on this blog post and keep your fingers crossed.
Good luck to everyone!
