We all know a bit of a movie buff — the type well-versed in pictures old and new, full of film facts and big screen banter. But when it comes to shopping for the best gifts for movie lovers, it can be hard to shop for someone who’s well-versed in the goings-on of cinema. You can never be certain if your favorite cinephile already owns that coveted collectible, that hard-to-find boxed set or every piece of movie memorabilia. Consider combining their interests outside of film to find the right gift. Are they a Marvel superfan who loves Legos? There’s a perfect present for that. Are they a chef who’s obsessed with The Godfather? We’ve got you covered there, too.

So, here are more than 15 of the best gifts for the film fanatics in your life. From home theater essentials (such as tech and snacks) to books on Hollywood trailblazers and decor, check out our top picks below.
