Some people love horror movies so much it’s scary! Even if horror movies aren’t for you, don’t discourage your friend’s appreciation of the strange and gory. When holidays or their birthday come around, you can choose gifts that any horror movie fan will love. Keep calm and spook on with these gift ideas for your favorite horror movie fan.
Gift a conversation starter in the form of a unique piece of art featuring their favorite horror-related imagery. It’s sure to add some character to whatever room they hang it up in. Since it’s such a unique piece, pick a size and color scheme that meshes well with several different places in their home to give them plenty of options.
You can support local artists by commissioning a custom piece from an up-and-comer in your area. That will make the piece all the more special. If you don’t have a vision for the piece, an artist can usually help draft something up based on a quick chat.
Horror Vinyl Collections
Sometimes horror movies scare us not because of the activity shown on the screen but the ominous or tense music playing in the background. Some of the most iconic horror movies, such as “Halloween,” are instantaneously recognizable simply by the musical score. Now imagine how thrilling the music will sound on vinyl.
If your friend has a record player, add to their music library with a horror vinyl collection. They probably don’t have it already, and they’ll get plenty of use out of it, especially around Halloween.
Subscription to Shudder
Shudder is a streaming service specifically for horror fans. It has one of the largest collections of horror movies in one place, including everything from classics to new releases. That means your loved one won’t be running out of their favorite genre any time soon. You will also never have to worry about an ad interrupting and breaking the tension of the scariest part of the movie.
Best of all, it’s only $5.99 per month or $56.99 annually. With the ability to play on three different screens at once, they can share the subscription with whoever they want.
Help your friend transform into a fun character by buying or making them a costume, such as a scary clown or Freddy Kruger. Don’t forget to include all of the necessary accessories and makeup to complete the look.
To add to the gift, create some memories. You can dress up in costume with them and go to a party or a haunted house. Make sure to get lots of pictures of the night. You could even frame and gift them with some of the best pictures.
Horror Trivia Game
Does your horror fan friend know everything there is to know about the making of “Carrie”? Do they know where Alfred Hitchcock got his inspiration? If they enjoy learning about the background of their favorite horror films, look at getting them a horror movie trivia game. There are several varieties, and your friend will get to show off their knowledge and learn more as they play.
It’s always best to choose presents that cater to your giftee’s interests. While these gifts might take a little more work to find or create, you’ll likely be able to find plenty of things that are unique or that they don’t already have. You’ll show them that you care about them and their interests. Whether it’s a birthday gift or a Christmas gift, a horror movie fan will appreciate any of these gifts any time of year.
