20+ Fabulous Gifts for Chick Flick Lovers, Film Fans, and Binge Watchers!
My Chick Flick Lovers Gift Guide is inspired by Oprah Winfrey’s fabulous Favorite Things list. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have Oprah’s money, but I still love nice things too.
If you are looking for a special gift for a special someone or maybe something nice for yourself. After the year we have all been through in 2020, I think a few nice things are definitely called for.
It all starts with the television!
It wasn’t too many years ago that I had a 17 inch TV with a set of rabbit ear antenna. That seems like the dark ages now. Thanks to Covid-19, I’ve been confined to my home since March 2020. So buying a better television seemed like a wise purchase.
The TCL 6-Series TV has great image quality, and the built-in Roku streaming platform makes it easy to watch Netflix, Disney+, and your other favorite channels. Available in 55, 65, and 75-inch screen sizes.
Binge Worth TV Shows
Mad Men Complete Collection: Includes 2 handmade low-ball tumblers and 4 collectable cork coasters. The Complete 7 Seasons with all special features ever released and commentaries on every episode plus over 4 hours of all-new exclusive special features: Mad Men Cast Wrap Ups, One on One with Matthew Weiner, Casting Mad Men, Design of A Decade, Mad Men Advertising Archives, Show/Historical Milestones Timeline.
The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook: Inside the Kitchens, Bars, and Restaurants of Mad Men: Dine like Draper and drink like Sterling with more than 70 Recipes from the bars, and restaurants seen on Mad Men (including Don’s Old Fashioned).
Johnny Mathis Greatest Hits: The album, released in 1958 stayed on the best-selling albums chard for more than 10 years. Includes the hits, Chances Are, The Twelfth of Never, and Look at Me.
Give the Gift of Entertainment
With most movie theaters shuttered for the foreseeable future, major Hollywood studios are seeking new options to release their movies. Warner Brothers recently announced that they will release all of their 2021 movies to HBO Max. That includes Wonder Woman 1984.
The cost of an annual subscription to Disney+ is worth every penny. If Broadway was open, you would pay more for a balcony ticket to see Hamilton. On Disney+ you can see the original Broadway cast of Hamilton, every Marvel movie (hopefully Black Widow too), Mulan, and more Star Wars movies than I even knew existed. And of course, the original series The Mandalorian, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, and more.
Movies and TV Series Based on Books
Since the days when Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters picked up quill pens to write their romantic stories about strong first women and handsome gentlemen, chick lit and chick flicks were destined to be together.
Give a box set of DVDs, or a collection of novels by popular chick flick series like these will keep any chick flick lover entertained for days.
