Popcorn Gift Package: What to Include

Updated on March 12, 2011

Are you looking for a food gift idea that’s a little more creative than a standard cheese gift basket or tin filled with cookies? With so many people watching their budgets and spending evenings at home rather than going out, consider assembling a popcorn gift package the next time you want to mark a special occasion with your friends or family members.

Popcorn, after all, is a great at-home snack treat that just about everyone enjoys. Anyone who has set aside time for family game night or who stays in to watch movies or sporting events on television rather than spending money on theater and stadium admission tickets is sure to enjoy receiving a gift package filled with popcorn and related items.

Ideas for What to Include in a Popcorn Gift Package

When deciding what to include in a popcorn gift package, it’s important to consider the needs and preferences of the recipient. For example, if the person who is receiving the gift doesn’t own a popcorn popper, you may want to focus on microwave popcorn or self-contained stove top popcorn choices rather than bags filled with kernels and bags of popping oil.

Of course, it’s also important to keep your own budget in mind as well. You can put together a basic popcorn gift package very inexpensively, or you can spend quite a bit of money. Before you start picking out items, have a final budget price in mind. Otherwise, you just might end up spending too much by buying one of everything that’s available.

List of 10 Popcorn Gift Package Possibilities

A few ideas for items that are appropriate to include in popcorn gift packages include:

  1. Bags of popcorn kernels
  2. Microwave popcorn
  3. Stovetop popcorn (like Jiffy Pop)
  4. Popcorn shaker seasonings (like Kernel Seasons)
  5. Popcorn popping oil
  6. Electric popcorn popper small appliance
  7. Bags or tins of pre-popped popcorn
  8. Serving bags or boxes (like what move theaters use)
  9. Popcorn butter
  10. Books about popcorn

Putting Together a Popcorn Gift Package

It’s up to you to decide how to put together your popcorn gift package. You can do something as simple as place all of the items in a paper or reusable grocery bag or assemble an elaborate gift basket or attractively decorated gift box.

This is the type of gift that will be appealing to recipients no matter how you choose to present it – wrapped or not! Who knows? You might even get an invitation to game, movie, or sports night so that you can help the recipient enjoy snacking on your thoughtful gift idea!
