7 Movie Suggestions That Make Great Stocking Stuffers

Movie Stocking STuffers

Christmas is just around the corner, which means presents are waiting to be opened and family memories to be made.  For me, it also means a few last minute stocking stuffers are needed.  One of my favorite things to have in my stocking are movies, the rest of my family is the same way.  We love having date nights at home, family movie nights, so movies make the perfect stocking stuffer.  Today I wanted to share seven movies I think would make a great addition to your last minute stocking or gifting needs!

When The Game Stands Tall

When The Game Stands Tall, is inspired by a true story.  This one I went and saw in theaters with my daughter and loved it. The film follows the incredible winning streak of the De La Salle High School football team — 151 straight victories over 12 years. But when “the streak” is finally broken and the team suffers a series of real-life adversities, Coach Ladouceur must teach his players – and the entire town – that it’s not about how you fall, but how you get back up.

Clue Movie

Six very different teenagers – Dimitri, Liz, Lucas, Agnes, Seamus and Whitney – are all enjoying their everyday lives when they witness a dramatic incident. Unfairly accused of creating a hoax, they team up to find out the truth. Clue: A Movie Mystery Adventure features the beloved characters inspired by the world’s most famous crime-solving board game, Clue. Follow six very different young sleuths as they embark on a mysterious adventure beyond their imaginations. As they work as a team to discover hidden treasures, decipher cryptic knowledge, and uncover a secret society, they learn they have more in common than they thought. A favorite board game of ours, this is one we love to watch together while we play the game.

Life in the big city is one big adventure for Arnold. Living with his grandparents, who run the Sunset Arms boarding house, Arnold shares a roof with a diverse and unusual menagerie of characters (including his pet pig!). But as any fourth grader knows, some of the most memorable people you’ll ever meet are in school. With friends like Arnold’s (including storyteller Gerald, class jinx Eugene, sometime-bully Harold, and the tomboy Helga, who harbors a secret crush on our hero), you can be sure that he’s got some funny exploits to share with fans. Whether you want to revisit your own childhood memories or create new ones with your kids, Shout! Factory has two words for you: Hey Arnold! A favorite series of kids from the 90’s, I love that my kids get to enjoy something I watched growing up!

How To Train Your Dragon

HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON rolls fire-breathing action, epic adventure and laughs into a captivating and original story of a young Viking named Hiccup who defies tradition and befriends a dragon. This has been a big favorite of my kids, they watch it over and over and over, along with How to Train Your Dragon 2!

The Other Woman

Cameron Diaz leads a knockout cast in this irreverent comedy about love, lust and the laws of karma. New York attorney Carly Whitten (Diaz) is nobody’s fool. So when she accidentally discovers that her too-good-to-be-true boyfriend Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is married, she’s less than thrilled. Not only that, she and Mark’s wife Kate (Leslie Mann), learn about yet another mistress (Kate Upton)! Before long, however, the betrayed beauties have become unlikely pals who’ve decided to teach their three-timing man a lesson. The more the trio learns about Mark, the worse he seems, and the more fun they have without him! The Other Woman, is a movie that I have laughed at every single time I watch. Perfect for a girls night in, though not for the younger crowd due to suggestive jokes and material.

White Christmas

White Christmas is a Christmas Classic that has been enjoyed for generations and I think will continue to be enjoyed by generations! Singers Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye) join sister act Betty (Rosemary Clooney) and Judy Haynes (Vera-Ellen) to perform a Christmas show in rural Vermont. There, they run into Gen. Waverly (Dean Jagger), their commander from WWII, and they learn he is having financial difficulties and his quaint country inn is failing. So, what better to do than put on the best musical so that The Waverly can be back in business and better than ever!

HundredFootJourneyBluray

The Hundred-Foot Journey brings many a few of my favorite things to the table: food, fun, and romance! Hassan Kadam (Manish Dayal) is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. Displaced from their native India, the Kadam family, led by Papa (Om Puri), settles in the quaint village of Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val in the south of France. Filled with charm, it is both picturesque and elegant – the ideal place to settle down and open an Indian restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. That is, until the chilly chef proprietress of Le Saule Pleureur, a Michelin starred, classical French restaurant run by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), gets wind of it. Her icy protests against the new Indian restaurant a hundred feet from her own escalate to all out war between the two establishments – until Hassan’s passion for French haute cuisine and for Mme. Mallory’s enchanting sous chef, Marguerite (Charlotte Le Bon), combine with his mysteriously delicious talent to weave magic between their two cultures and imbue Saint-Antonin with the flavors of life that even Mme. Mallory cannot ignore. At first Mme. Mallory’s culinary rival, she eventually recognizes Hassan’s gift as a chef and takes him under her wing.

No matter what kind of movie you like, this list is a great start to your gift giving or stocking stuffer needs. Romance, mystery, animated, comedy, sports, there really is something for everyone! And what better way to spend the day after Christmas than enjoying movies with the ones you love! What are some of your favorite movies?
