10 Movie Gift Baskets That Won't Fail

I am a fan of The Movie Night Gift Basket. It consists of a drink, a DVD and a treat, all wrapped in that crunchy sounding cellophane. Now, I know that you are hip and download everything, but not everyone is as rad as you and you might find yourself scrambling to get a gift for your
  • Neighbor/in law/cousin/whoever that you kind of know but not really: Martinelli's + Angels Sing + Kettle Corn
  • Relative that has too many kids to buy them all individual gifts: Fanta + Pixar Shorts Collection + tub of Red Vines
  • Kid's 2nd grade teacher: Starbucks VIA Pumpkin Spice + Whale Rider + Werther's
  • Funny, ironic-cool friend: Pabst + Top Secret + Pirate's Booty
  • Just got dumped, bummed out, female coworker friend: Moscato + Gatsby + Pedicure Set*
  • New Boyfriend's Mom: Mint Hot Cocoa + Hard Day's Night + Almond Roca
  • White Trash Uncle: Mountain Dew + Best of Duck Dynasty + Blast O' Butter popped corn
  • 22 year old, unimpressed, hipster friend who's "seen it all": Pinot noir + Man Bites Dog + Fair trade dark chocolate
  • Stoner friend: Cactus Cooler + This is The End + Nutter Butter's
  • Friend who just had a baby: Cranberry Sprite + 3 Men and a Baby + Twizzler's Nibs
I have put careful thought into each of these combos. Don't believe me?

#10, Friend who just had a baby:

Sprite- She's most likely breast feeding, no caffeine.
3 Men and a Baby- Your friend is super tired. She doesn't have the attention span to think about a movie right now. She will probably put whatever DVD you give her in the player and sleep/watch it in 10 minute increments while feeding her baby for 4 months.
Twizzler's Nibs- New parents only get to eat handfuls of food while standing and holding a baby.
Boom. You're welcome.
