Gift Guide: At the Movies

What do you buy the person who has everything? Well, I can think of a thing or two…

Welcome to my weekly gift-guide; I’m thrilled to be sharing a selection of creative, quirky and downright awesome gifts with you here on Rachael’s blog. This week’s guide is for the movie lovers in your life.
We all have one die-hard movie buff in the family or friendship group. The person you turn to when you can’t remember the name of the film, you know that film, the one with the actor with the beard and the brown hair. Buying a gift for that friend can be a bit of a minefield, it’s likely they already have an exhaustive DVD collection and all the film memorabilia they could possibly want. You need a really original gift, one that will stay true to their movie-loving ways without injuring your bank balance. Here are a few suggestions to get you started…
Keep their DVD collection in check with this typographic bookend inspired by classic movies from Goodwin and Goodwin.
Movie posters are re-imagined in a minimalist style by artist Claudia Varosio. I particularly love Claudia’s take on ET and The Shawshank redemption, but there are plenty more in her Etsy store to chose from.
This clap board iPhone case is the perfect combination of whimsical charm and designer cool.
More incredible movie posters, this time for Wes Anderson fans. This vibrant collection is the brainchild of British Indie, a design studio producing alternative TV and film posters, all of which are fantastically colourful.
This handmade film reel necklace is a thoughtful gift for a sister. It can even be customised with a birthstone or letter charm for a really personal gift.
Celebrate a special occasion with a sophisticated cocktail and these ‘film fatale’ coasters.
A surprising contender for this weeks gift-list is IKEA with a brilliant Charlie Chaplin canvas. I’ve seen this in the flesh and the canvas is white, rather than grey as shown in the picture.
What do you think? Seen something you like? I’ll be back next week with an Easter inspired Gift-Guide. Have a lovely day, Leonie x
