How to Choose the Best Stocking Stuffer for the Movie Fan in Your Life (feat. Items from the Shop!)

It's that time of year again, ya'll! The holiday season is upon us, and you know what that means—it's time to stuff some stockings. Now, you might be thinking, "What's the big deal? It's just a small gift, right?" Wrong! Choosing the perfect stocking stuffer is an art form in itself. Lucky for you, I've got some tips and tricks up my sleeve to help you become a stocking stuffer extraordinaire. To make things even better, I've handpicked some top products from the shop to inspire you along the way.

1. For the Physical Media Head

You know what's cool about physical media (aside from preserving loads of material that hasn't even been digitalized yet)? Most of it can actually fit in a stocking. Seriously - stuff a dvd, bluray or two, or a VHS tape - they'll sure to be thrilled. Pair it with some VHS Earrings or Hair Clips if you're looking to add a little something extra:

2. Who's the Lucky Recipient?

Next, think about the person who will be receiving the stocking stuffer.
Are they a Comedy Buff?
Try a Pick of Destiny Pin or Keychain!
A Horror Guru?
Perhaps the A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night earrings will perk them right up.
A Romance Devotee?
The True Romance Napkins are one of our all-time best sellers!
A Musical Lover?
They'll be sure to swoon over these rainbow holographic Origin of Love earrings.
Knowing their interests and hobbies will help you choose a gift that they'll truly appreciate. And hey, if you're not sure, you can always go for something universally loved, like movie theater candy & snacks.

3. Size Matters

When it comes to stocking stuffers, size does matter. Opt for small, compact items that can easily fit into their stocking without taking up too much space - but also something that can be kept close to the recipient to decorate their wardrobe. Keychains and Pins are a great example, as they can be used to adorn all sorts of items from clothing to bags and keyrings. Check out our "accessories" section to see some top sellers that are on the smaller side.

4. Embrace the Unknown

Stocking stuffers are the perfect opportunity to embrace gift cards. Let's face it, who knows a person's taste better than themselves? They're a great way to show you care, and generally understand their interest - but also that you care about them getting exactly what they're into. We offer gift cards in small or large amounts, depending on your desired wow-factor - check them out here.

5. Quality over Quantity

While it's tempting to stuff the stocking with as many goodies as possible, remember that quality trumps quantity for some. Instead of filling the stocking with cheaper, disposable items, choose a couple high-quality gifts that the recipient will truly cherish and be surprised by when they open the stocking. Any of our One-Of-A-Kind Film Still Jewelry pieces would make a cinephile smile - check them out here:

6. Personalize it!

Adding a personal touch to your stocking stuffer can make all the difference. Consider customizing the gift by placing a custom order! Everyone loves to see their name on an item, and we can engrave it on just about anything. Whether you're looking for a unique piece inspired by the recipient's favorite film, or just to add a personal message to something we already sell - don't hesitate to reach out to to get the ball rolling. You can see past custom orders on our Instagram Story Highlights Here.

7. Don't Forget the Fun!

Above all, stocking stuffers should be fun! They're meant to bring joy and laughter to the holiday season. That's why we throw in extra stickers to every order - because it's a little extra that can pack a big impact. Whether you choose to keep them or share them though, is entirely up to you. ;)
And there you have it, folks! With these tips in your back pocket, you're ready to conquer the art of choosing the perfect stocking stuffer for that film buff in your life. Remember, it's all about fun - so don't stress. Happy stuffing!
