In the following list, you can find a number of gift ideas for movie fans in different price ranges. Movie buff gifts come in all shapes and sizes so that’s what you’ll find below.
We didn’t focus on specific genres (such as horror movie fans) and instead focused on gift ideas that would appeal to the average movie fan. Of course, there are many more movie gift ideas out there!
Your movie fan doesn’t have their own projector yet? Then consider getting them one to help them take their movie experience to the next level!
This mini projector is nice since it has a small footprint and can be stored easily. It can also be connected to numerous different devices making it easy to set up and start watching that movie.
Is it your movie lover’s dream to ever be a movie director? With a director’s chair like this they can start preparing for the role, haha!
These director’s chairs can be ordered in different color and at different heights, making it easy to choose a chair that would actually work in the movie lovers home.
For example, these chairs could be used as bar stools or nice accent pieces in a movie or family room.
Ticket Stub Organizer
If you have a movie fan who likes to go see new movies in theaters and then keeps the ticket, get them a ticket stub organizer.
Organizers like this one make it easy to store the ticket stubs. You can also write down notes and memories from that specific event next to the ticket stub.
This could end up being the perfect memory book to get out every once in a while to relive movie magic.
Portable Movie Screen

This screen can be used both indoors and outside – making it super versatile. It’s easy to set up and can be the perfect movie night addition.

If your movie fan also enjoys filming their own amateur videos/movies, the clapper board can even serve an actual purpose – or at least be a fun prop to use!
Movie Prop Camera
Slightly related to the classic movie gift mentioned above is this movie prop camera. It’s a great gift for a movie lover who is also into displaying unique decor pieces in their home.
Just be aware that this is a cardbox prop – so it’s not a gift that is supposed to last for a long time. However, the novelty of the prop might look great in that man cave or movie watching space in their house!
Movie Line Captions Game
Do you have a movie lover that frequently recites different movie lines? Then this movie line captions game would be perfect for them!
Bruce is someone who is known to quote from movies so this game would be absolutely perfect for him.
There are, however, also people who don’t like quotes or can’t remember them (like Lisa) – for people like her this game would maybe not be the best choice. But it could still be lots of fun nevertheless!
Movie Night Decorations
If your movie lover also likes entertaining and having a few friends over, then consider getting them a movie night decoration set.
These decorations can take their movie night get-together to the next level and make for some fun photo props as well!

Things to Consider When Buying Gifts for Movie Lovers
When buying a gift for someone who loves movies, there are a few things you should consider before making a purchase. We briefly address some of them in this section.
This consideration is pretty self explanatory – but keep the movie genres that your movie lover is interested in in the back of your mind when looking for a gift.
If you know someone whose a big fan of horror movies, it would make sense to get them either a generic movie gift that works for all movie lovers or something related to horror.
However, if you know that your movie lover enjoys comedies and funny movies, then a horror movie gift would probably not be the best idea.
If you’re unsure what movie genre (if any – maybe your movie lover likes all types of movies) someone is interested in, it’s probably a good idea to just stick to a gift idea that is unrelated to a specific genre.
Of course the product quality will also influence what kind of gift you get. If you get someone an electronic-based gift – such as a mini projector or sound system – then product quality is definitely quite important.
However, if you’re looking for a gift that is mainly a funny gift, a lower product quality could be fine if the price reflects that.
That’s why it’s always a good idea to read the product description and the product reviews (if you’re shopping online) before buying something.
Last but not least the price of an item will most likely also influence what kind of gift you get your movie lover.
We know that some items on this list (like the portable movie screen) are higher-priced items. If these items fit into your budget and would genuinely provide value and happiness to the receiver, then that’s great!
However, if you can’t afford something like that – don’t worry. There are quite a few movie gift ideas that are in a more affordable price range.
And there you have it – some of the best gifts for movie lovers out there right now! In the end, if you keep in mind your movie lover and their movie interests when you make the purchase, you’ll have a good chance of getting them a great movie-themed gift!
