Budget Pressies For Movie-Obsessed Friends

I’m sure we all have that one friend or relative who is crazy about movies and going to the cinema. In fact, they might never seem to be out of the cinema! So, when their birthday or Christmas roll around, you will no doubt want to get them something that relates to movies as you can guarantee that they will love it once they open it.

However, it’s just such a shame that some movie gifts are very expensive. After all, the various film and movie studios want to make as much cash as possible so slap on some pretty big price tags to most official merchandise. But do you really have to spend an arm and a leg when it comes to buying your movie lover a gift? Thankfully, not always! Here are some really affordable gift ideas for your movie-obsessed friends!

Some Movie Memorabilia

If you know what your friend’s favorite ever movie is, you might want to think about getting them a piece of movie memorabilia. This will be an item or a keepsake that closely relates to the movie somehow. For instance, if your friend loves Beetlejuice, you might want to get them some black-and-white striped trousers like the ones the titular character wears. For movie lovers who adore Back to the Future, you could head to hoverboard4sale.com and buy your friend a cool hoverboard. I’m sure you’ll be able to think of something no matter what their best-loved movie is!

Movie Posters

If you don’t have a whole lot to spend on some fancy movie memorabilia, you might just want to get your friend or relative a poster. Each film will have a few posters that are put in various towns and cities to promote it, and these designs are often available for the public to buy as well. There are lots of places that sell movie posters, such as popartuk.com, but you will often find that collectors sell any surplus that they have on auction sites like eBay for discounted prices.


Something else you can often find on eBay for really cheap prices is autographs. You can find all manner of celebrity autographs online, and there are certainly lots of movie stars amongst the mix. It will be a lot more expensive to buy a signed photograph, so you might just want to look for a signed slip of paper if you are on a shoestring budget. Personalized signatures also come in pretty pricey, so you might just want to find a paper that shows the actor’s signature without any personalization.

A DVD Collection

Why not try and broaden your friend’s movie opinions and buy them a DVD collection that they don’t already own? Again, eBay is a great place to go if you want to find something for a budget price.

As you can see then, there are lots of reasonably priced gifts you can buy all your movie-loving friends! Hopefully, they will love everything on this gift idea list above!
