These days, many of us are spending a bit more time around the house. However, just because you aren’t hitting the cinema like you used to doesn’t mean you can’t have fun on the weekend. Movie nights offer an easy, affordable way to enjoy Hollywood blockbusters from the comfort of your own home. Snuggle up with the kids or put them to bed early and stream something with your sweetie. Of course, no home movie night is complete without a few must-haves. From cozy blankets to delicious eats and treats, check out Pure Parima’s top suggestions for ensuring your next movie night is a success.
After a long day at the office, there are few things better than ditching the fitted skirt suit or suffocating jeans for some cozy pajamas. To make the most of your movie night, pick out your softest PJs to wear. It’s hard to beat cotton when it comes to comfort, but we also love flannel pajamas for those long winter nights. If the weather is on the chilly side in your part of the country, add a pair of fuzzy slippers and a fluffy robe to keep you warm. You’ll be ready to stretch out on the sofa in no time.
Before you settle on the sofa, it pays to get your snacks in order. Of course buttery popcorn is a must for any movie night. If you want to up the ante though, consider investing in a tub of regular, carmel, and cheese-flavored corn. You can augment your food selection with sweet treats like chocolate, cookies, or your favorite ice cream brand. As for drinks, you can’t go wrong with hot chocolate with mini marshmallows. On the other hand, if you’re hosting a movie night for grown-ups, think about relaxing with Irish coffees or your favorite cocktail. Ultimately, the right movie night snacks are whichever ones you and your family enjoy.
Convenient Mini Fridge
Once you’re settled with your snacks, you probably won't want to get up again. If your family members have a bad habit of asking for drinks every few minutes, a mini fridge is the perfect solution. This purchase is especially vital if you’re inviting kids to your movie night. Prop your fridge somewhere near the sofa and stuff it with bottled water, cans of soda, juice boxes, or whatever else your loved ones like to drink. That way no one has to get up and run to the kitchen for a refill.
When it comes to a successful movie night, comfort is key. After all, there’s a reason you’re choosing to watch a flick at home rather than hit a busy cinema. To ensure you feel comfy and cozy throughout, we recommend investing in some good pillows. Whether you plan to settle in on the couch or sprawl out on the floor, a high-quality lumbar pillow provides the right support for aching backs. We’re big fans of our Hira Decorative Lumbar Pillow for movie night and every night. Made from luscious Egyptian cotton sateen, this sleek pillow boats a modern diamond embroidery pattern sure to add style to your space. As a bonus, it’s made using OEKO-TEX® Certified Non-Harmful Chemicals, so you can feel good about where you’re resting your head. Pick up one for yourself and order a spare for that special someone.
Of course, it’s hard to enjoy your favorite films when you’re cold. If you want to stay warm on your next movie night, cozy blankets are a must-have. Luckily, the options are virtually endless when it comes to snuggly throws. We love to cuddle up on the couch with one of our Giza Quilted Coverlets. Made from 100 percent Giza Egyptian cotton, these blankets are both warm and soft. Featuring a petite diamond pattern, the reversible coverlet boasts a sateen weave that feels like silk on your skin. However, velvet and knit throws are also great for canoodling with the one you love. Add one of two of these blankets to your movie night shopping list to ensure no one gets cold feet or fingers.
