We're huge movie buffs in my family.  This lead to a Christmas tradition that we have kept up for years.  Every year I pick a "movie" and put together a gift basket full of items for our Christmas Eve movie night.  We open the gift on Christmas Eve, snuggle on the couch together, eat snacks, and watch the movie.  This year I chose Guardians of the Galaxy!

We love Guardians of the Galaxy around here, so it was an obvious choice!  Guardians of the Galaxy released this week onto DVD and Blu Ray.  I went to Wal-Mart at 7:30am on release day to pick up the movie and some other goodies for our basket.  You know how much I love music, and this movie has one EPIC soundtrack!  So that was a MUST HAVE as well.

While picking up the movie and the soundtrack at Wal-Mart, I decided to pick up a fun movie themed toy to add to our basket.  I found this awesome end cap with all kinds of toys!  If I had little ones, I think we would have purchased everything!  I was wanting some cute action figures my teenage son could put on his shelves or desk.  I found exactly what I was looking for!

For your Guardians of the Galaxy movie night gift basket, you will need the movie!  I chose the DVD which comes with a free digital download so you can watch it on your phones or tablets!  This will come in handy for holiday travel!  The Blu Ray comes with lots of extra features: exclusive character o-sleeve, zinepak, and a laptop decal!  I easily found the movie in the electronics department on an end cap.  This is also where I found the soundtrack.  This soundtrack is super duper awesome you guys!  It's a Wal-Mart exclusive and comes with extra goodies!  Then I also picked up these cute action figures.  The pack has Groot [I am Groot!], Rocket Raccoon, and Nova Corps Officer.

This soundtrack deserves pictures of it's own!  When you open the packaging, it has the CD on the left, then a 64 pg magazine, and a laptop decal.  The "zinepack" is full of Guardians of the Galaxy behind the scenes info and random trivia related to the movie & music.

Here's the back of the soundtrack packaging.  It's the final page of the magazine and tucked into the back panel is a Guardians of the Galaxy "Awesome Mix Vol. 1" laptop decal!  I will totally be putting this on my laptop!

Since we're making a gift basket, you'll need something to conceal the movie items in.  We don't want anyone knowing what the movie is before movie night!  I chose this adorable gingerbread felt gift bag.  It held the movie, the soundtrack, and the Guardians of the Galaxy actions figures.

You will want to add in your favorite movie candy and popcorn!  We also chose these cute Christmas cups with Christmas paper straws <33  Can you tell we like candy around here? Ahah!

Here's my basket all put together!  I went with a gingerbread cellophane gift basket bag to match the gingerbread bag that contains our movie items.  This makes a really large gift basket!  I love our movie night tradition.  It's a great way to spend some quality quiet time together before the hustle & bustle of Christmas Day.  It's also fun to open a gift on Christmas Eve!  This way the Christmas Eve gift is for the entire family.

If you have Disney Infinity, Wal-Mart has an awesome deal for you right now!  This would be a great item to add to your bag!  Wal-Mart is offering a free $5 gift card with your purchase of a Guardians of the Galaxy Disney Infinity 2.0 character.  Your cashier will be prompted to give you your $5 gift card at check out.  So you will get it right away!  This offer is only available 12/7-12/13 so you need to hurry to Wal-Mart and grab yours now!

I hope this inspires you to do a Christmas Eve movie night!  It's so much fun for everyone!  I also recommend you use Guardians of the Galaxy as your movie too!  Guardians is super funny and has something for everyone.  Even grandma & grandpa will enjoy it!

  25. We just watched the Guardians of the Galaxy two Fridays ago and my son went to church the following Wednesday where they had "the store" open (the kids get 'money' for learning versus), anyway, this his money he bought the figurine set with Groot - he is still sleeping with those figurines! Great movie (I wish it didn't have the fowl language though- it wasn't necessary at all), but still a great movie!
