A TableTop Popcorn Maker Combined with Your Own Used & Well Conditioned DVD’s is an Excellent Gift Idea
Since our boys are grown now, we have quite a selection of Kids DVDs in storage, so I decided to include them with this tabletop popcorn maker as a gift to someone in our family. In fact, we’re taking this gift one step further and also including movie theater passes.
It’s so expensive for parents to take kids to the movies these days, especially if they have several children. The cost of getting popcorn and drinks can also make it a difficult outing for many families. For years we avoided the movie theater because it drained the pocket book by close to a hundred bucks by the time we left…and not to mention the theaters that tempt kids with video games as soon as you walk in!
So consequently we would watch a lot of movies at home. In order to make it extra fun, I used to make it as close to a movie theater experience as possible by including popcorn, candies and drinks. It was certainly a lot more affordable to gather around the family room TV and watch a movie than it was to go out to the theater! It was not only more fun, but also a lot more convenient; when someone had to go to the washroom, we would simply pause the movie.
This tabletop popcorn maker adds to the entire theater experience. In fact, if it’s possible, I would put it in the room where the movies are being watched and that way it’s also a visual accessory that can add to the mood and fun of the night.
You can take the popcorn maker to a whole other level. If sitting a popcorn machine on the table isn’t very practical, and you’re willing to go higher in price, this Great Nothern tall popcorn machine qualifies as funk’N cool for a ‘movie room’.

If you’re looking for a more original design, both of these slightly smaller tabletop popcorn makers could be a viable option. They’re unique enough to give you that retro look without being too overbearing if you’re in a smaller space.
