What To Put In Your Movie Night Hamper

No movie night hamper is complete without popcorn. You can get all kinds of delicious popcorn combinations, so it all depends on your preferences and tastes. Butterkist do a nice toffee popcorn for the kids, but if you’re looking for something a little more luxurious, Joe & Sephs caramel salted popcorn is divine.

Snacking on nuts in front of a film is one of the greatest joys in life. How about mini nibs salt and pepper peanuts if you want something yummy? Graze also do a huge selection of healthy, tasty nuts if you want something especially good for you. One of our favourite brands for nuts is Olives et al, you can see their range of nuts here.
For those savoury addicts out there, crisps are a must in a movie night hamper. You can get all kinds of crisps, from healthy baked versions to naughty fried versions. Yorkshire crisps are yummy, and so much tastier than Pringles!
If you’re on a health kick, you can still enjoy the movie with a bag of crisps.Tyrells veg crisps are healthy and delicious. Another alternative is Itsu Crispy Seaweed Thins. You can buy both of these from your local supermarket.
If you want to have a real British cinema experience, buy a bag of nachos to include and then cover them with melted cheese, jalapenos, salsa, and guacamole (which you can include in jar form). This is one of the best snacks to buy at the cinema and great for sharing.
For some savoury addicts, only cheese will fill the void. Cropwell bishop stilton cheese might smell, but it’s one of the best cheeses for cheese lovers. Don’t forget to stock up on chutney and pickle too to really enhance the flavours.
6. Cookies and Biscuits
There are all kinds of cookies and biscuits you could include in your hamper. Stag salt and pepper water biscuits can be eaten alone or used with your cheese for an even tastier mouthful.
Stag shortbread is for those who prefer a sweeter flavour. If you’re a chocolate addict, then Thomas J Fudges delicious milk chocolate Florentines are right up your street.
Sometimes, only plain old chocolate will fill the void when you’re watching an intense movie. Sure, you could go for any old chocolate from the shop, but why not enjoy something more luxurious? Dark chocolate thins are super tasty, and look amazing in a movie night hamper. Plus, you know when they are thinner, you can eat more of them.
If you want things you can share, then there are all kinds of classic chocolates you can buy in sharing boxes to dip into.
8. Hot Drinks
Not everybody wants to drink alcohol when watching a film, which is why a selection of hot drinks in the hamper is a good idea. Drinking fudge in Moreish Mint is one of the most delicious sweet hot drinks you’ll ever try, but Chocca Mocca drinking chocolate is also a good shout for those who just want pure chocolate indulgence. Tea and coffee can be included too, but make sure you choose some exciting beverages!
9. Alcoholic Beverages
Adults at your movie night might just want a tipple. It’s important to remember that everybody has different tastes. Murphy Vineyards chardonnay could be a nice idea for those who enjoy wine, but beer is usually a popular choice to relax with in front of a film. Oakham ales beers, as well as those by Jeffrey Hudson and Krombacher always go down well. If you want some more inspiration for alcoholic hampers, check our alcohol hampers section.

Not everybody wants hot, and not everybody wants alcoholic. That’s where the fizzy drinks come in. They’re perfect for a kid’s movie night or for adults who just enjoy a soda. Why not include glass bottle sodas? They’ll look great in your movie hamper!
