This fun gift idea is made extra special with free printables! A Cozy Movie Night Bucket is a perfect gift that can be customized with fun candy and treats!
Hello! Here we are on the last day in my “12 Days of Holiday Crafts” series! I hope you have enjoyed it and hopefully have been inspired by some of the projects! I had a lot of fun doing them and finding new ways to DIY Christmas gifts and decorations. Today I have a great gift idea that can easily still be created by Christmas – a Cozy Movie Night Gift Bucket!
Movie baskets, movie tins, movie buckets – they’ve all been done before, but just because it’s been done before doesn’t mean it isn’t still a great gift idea! This type of gift is especially great for a secret santa gift exchange or a last minute gift. It’s the kind of gift you can keep gender neutral and generic, but you can also get very specific if gifting it to someone in particular.
My movie bucket is all about a cozy night in. Perfect for the cold winter months ahead of us. This bucket is stocked full of snacks and treats, perfect for a cozy night on the couch with a great movie. Below is a list of what I included in my bucket along with some great printables you can use to decorate it!
To create the Cozy Movie Night Gift Bucket, you need to start with a tin bucket or similar shaped bucket or basket. What you decide to put into it is completely up to you! The items I used were purchased from Target and a local grocery store! The tin bucket came from Joann Fabrics.
- Tin bucket
- Hot cocoa mix
- Carmel Corn Popcorn
- Chocolate bars
- Junior Mints – I was looking for Snowcaps but couldn’t find any!
- Google Play gift card (iTunes or Redbox would work too!)
- Tissue paper
- Crinkle paper
- Free printable labels (link at the end of this post)
The free printables are available at the end of this post. One is a label for the front of the tin. I wrapped the tin in a red ribbon and attached the label over it. The second two printables are long strips of a patterened paper that match the label. I used one to fold over the top of my popcorn bag. I cut it to size and then punched holes through the paper and bag. I tied a bow with ribbon to hold it all together.
I made the marshmallow bags by using some pretzel rod bakery bags I already had. I filled them with marshmallows and then covered the twisty tie with red ribbon.
I put tissue paper on the bottom of the tin to fill the bottom and raise all of my items to the top. I then arranged the items and filled around them with red, green and white crinkle paper. This worked great to help hold up the items. I’m happy with how it turned out! It definitely made me want to curl up on the couch and watch a movie!
