Hello again! It's been a while, but here's another "Gift Shelf girl" of the week.
Quick recap: The Gift Shelf is a part of our blog/Instagram where we give you some suggestions on what to get as a gift for someone's special day. Whether its your creative girlfriend, minimalist father, or angry neighbor, we've got you covered!
Today we have here Film-loving Fiona who knows a movie quote for every situation and would rather stay at home to watch Netflix than go out on a Friday night.
Here's a few items that s/he might like with the imdb movie links in case you are not a movie person yourself ;)
(clockwise from top left)
1. Bonnie & Clyde T-shirt ($85)
Here's a cute white T from the classic 60's film Bonnie and Clyde (1967) drawn by French artist Marguerite Bartherotte. (She has her own fashion brand too!) Seems like this T-shirt is limited in
number, so be quick to purchase if you have someone in mind!
2. "Cocktails of the Movies" book (£9.99)
Beautiful illustrations of 64 famous characters and their iconic cocktails like "Moloko Plus" from Clockwork Orange (1971) and from "Sweet vermouth on the rocks with a twist" from Groundhog Day (1993). You can enjoy a fun boozy night-in with a cocktail experiment and a nice movie! (Here's a fancier version sold at Nieman Marcus- more expensive but with a leather cover!)
3. Moonrise Kingdom inspired print ($9)
Wouldn't it be nice to be reminded of the cute little romance between Sam & Susie from Moonrise Kingdom (2012) every day? Here's a set of 2 prints by Etsy seller MissDesignBerryInc.
4. Star Wars Kokeshi doll (5,400 yen)
Star Wars fanatics tend to have all kinds of collectable figures already so here's a unique option. These wooden Kokeshi dolls are stylish interior decorations that are perfect for both Star Wars fans and their co-habitants (less gadget-y if I may say so :P), with a selection of Darth Vader, Storm Trooper, Yoda, C-3PO, and R2-D2.
5. La la Land Set of 6 Postcards ($5.99)
This selection would't be complete without the award winning La la Land (2016), destined to be our generation's classic. Etsy seller PaperBunnyWorkshop does an awesome job of capturing some of the iconic scenes from the movie.
6. Fictional Hotel Notepads (set of 8 for £18)
Some people have a habit of collecting hotel notepads or pens, but these notepads from "Kellerman's Resort" of Dirty Dancing (1987) and "The Empire Hotel" of Vertigo (1958) are hard to get. These clever notepads from Herb Lester are bound to capture the hearts of film lovers.
Here are some other options in case they like other films/TV shows!
