2018 VUDU HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

DECK THE HAULS

 

Tis the season for secret Santas, white elephants, and all manner of giving occasions, and trying to find the perfect thing for everyone on your list can leave you saying “Bah humbug!”

 

No need to fear the cheer, we’ve assembled our first ever Vudu holiday gift guide to help you find the right stuff for stuffing those stockings. Everyone loves a good movie, and we’ve got the greatest gadgets, goodies, and gear to make everyone’s movie night merry and bright.

 

TECH

 

 

 

Wi-fi coming up a little short? A mesh network extends the router’s reach to cover the whole home, so everyone can browse, game, or stream in style.

 

 

 

The best TV is nothing without awesome sound, and a wireless soundbar is a sleek and simple way to amp up movies with the sound they deserve.

 

 

 

Any TV can be smart with a little help. Roku devices let you stream all of your favorite video apps (*cough* Vudu *cough*) onto the big screen, with options for newer and older models.

 

COMFORT

 

 

Is it a blanket? Is it a hoodie? All we know about Huggles is they’re the comfiest purchase you’ll ever make, and available in multiple colors!

 

 

 

Up your snack game with an air fryer: the quicker, healthier, oil-free way to cook and crispify all your favorite movie eats.

 

 

Nobody likes a warm drink (hot cocoa no included). A Yeti drink holster keeps your favorite movie drink cold from opening titles to end credits.

 

SWAG

 

 

For the movie fan ready to immortalize their absolute fav; these awesome metal movie posters are a grown-up upgrade to classic dorm room decor.

 

 

 

The perfect (and affordable) addition to every movie buff’s stocking, Funko’s cute collectibles are a great way to let your fan flag fly.

 

 

 

For those who want to rep their favorite franchises all day and/or night long, these fun and comfy movie-themed shirts are a steal at just $6.

 

MOVIES

 

 

Can’t have a movie night without movies. Gifting a Vudu digital copy of the latest releases is as easy as picking up a digital movie card at your local Walmart.

 

 

Why not double (or triple) dip? Vudu Disc + Digital gets you a physical copy to give away, a digital copy for you, and some bundles even come with exclusive movie-themed collectibles.

 

 

Movie tastes are personal, so why not let your giftees choose for themselves? With a Vudu eGift card they can purchase or rent movies and TV from our huge collection of new and classic titles, then watch them on any device.
