Easy Holiday Solutions ~ Hit Movie Gifts For Everyone On Your List


Without fail, each holiday season,  we find ourselves struggling to find gifts for certain people on our list or surprised by an unexpected attendee at a family gathering for gift exchange.  My husband and I found an easy tactic to employ for both situations that always ends in success.  In truth, once we began this holiday gift tradition, after years of treating ourselves to new movies to add to our home collections, we were bemused that we had not thought of it sooner.

Whether the latest new releases or a digitally remastered classic film on Blu-Ray, we find picking up movies to use as holiday gifts is a easy and affordable solution.  We have even taken to selecting a few extra titles to serve as the extra and unexpected gift needs that often arise.   Below, you will find a selection of some of our favorite new releases for 2012 from the collections of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.
                        
FOR MOM ~

Cool choices! I hadn't heard of "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" which looks like a movie I'd really enjoy. Will be adding to my list, for sure!

WOW.. I haven't seen any of them, guess they all are now on our Christmas wish list; thanks for a great choice and helping me decide what to get for the family on DVD this Christmas.

I can't wait to see the Abraham Lincoln movie, it's going to be great! Also can't wait to watch Frosty The Snowman with my daughter, what a classic! Hubby and I both have Thursdays off, so we usually grab a redbox movie and watch it together with our daughter.
