So you all know how much I love the movies, but what about when I’m watching a movie at home, well thanks to GiftAlien those nights are fun as well.

Remember sometime back when I brought you my review of the latest outing for James Bond in Spectre, well having a chance to watch the movie again at home with the cinema experience was great and it was all thanks to those wonderful people over at GiftAlien and the box that they sent over to me to check out for a Movie Night In, “Shaken Not Stirred”.

The box that was sent over certainly wasn’t what I was expecting, but what a lovely surprise it was when it arrived on Saturday morning, the box which is slightly bigger than a shoes box is packed with movie goodies to enjoy an evening with James Bond and maybe, just maybe, become a secret agent for the duration of the night.

GiftAlien began towards the end of 2015 when they were trying to find Christmas presents for friends and family. Online gift shops tend to all promote the same range of individual gift ideas and they couldn’t find anything that was different, thoughtful and that wouldn’t just end up in a cupboard somewhere waiting for the school raffle. It was during a car journey home from a family party when they realised that lots of people like them love the thought of a movie night at home so why not make “just another TV night”…a whole movie experience. Why stop at the movie experience?

The GiftAlien Shaken Not Stirred Box Contains

  • GiftAlien Movie Night In2 miniature bottles of Smirnoff Vodka
  • 2 miniature bottles of Martini Vermouth
  • 2 Martini plastic glasses

Additionally, you’ll find everything you could possibly need to make your Bond evening complete:

  • Daniel Craig face mask – yes, you can be Bond!
  • Ready-tied black bow tie – you have to be dressed for the occasion
  • Large bag of sweet microwave popcorn
  • Large box of cinema-style nachos and salsa dip
  • Spectre postcard
  • James Bond Top Trumps (pre-movie) game
  • Traditional cinema popcorn bag
  • 2 GiftAlien movie tickets

Now how cool is that, everything you could possibly want to be Bond for the night, all carefully packed up in a box and delivered direct to your door.

Having some cinema style nachos and popcorn at home is always a great way to watch a movie, both the nachos and popcorn were delicious, the salsa dip was really nice and it was fun to wash it all down with a Martini in your very own Martini glass, which being plastic doesn’t shatter when you kick it over with your feet (whoops).

All in all a fantastic pack and one which I would recommend, but don’t worry, GiftAlien do more than just the James Bond box, they have other great selections such as Gifts for Him, Gifts for Her, Gifts for a New Home and so many more boxes.

They also have a good choice of DVDs and Blu-rays for you to add to the various sets.

Hang On What About The Movie?

Don’t worry, depending on the package that you choose you will also get Spectre in the box as well, you have a choice of the Blu-Ray or DVD, so if you haven’t got the movie, you can order it while you order the box, if you have got Spectre you can get the box without, which is what I received.

Overall the quality of the contents from GiftAlien is great, I couldn’t fault it, it’s a great pack for movie fans and for those that want a little fun with movie night in.
