Guest Picks: Family Movie & Game Night
— Liren from Kitchen Confidante
Microwaved popcorn is so 1990s, don't you think? Actually, there are reports from the EPA that the chemicals from the butter flavor, as well as the inks and glues on the popcorn bag, can be quite toxic. Let's go back to the past and pop corn the old-fashioned way — with a modern twist, of course.
It's hard to say who's going to have more fun with this old-school popcorn maker: the kids or the grownups. Either way, everyone will love their freshly popped popcorn!
No need to fight over the popcorn bowl! These happy popcorn bowls ensure that everyone has their own.
Warm up those bellies with a cozy mug of hot chocolate. I love these graphic alphabet mugs — customize them for the members of your family, and you'll never have to wonder, "Is that my cup of cocoa?"
Gourmet s'mores are sweet and dandy, but sometimes you just want to make them your way. Leave it to Cuisinart to find a way to make it easy, whether in your toaster oven or on the grill.
From game night with the whole family to poker night with the boys, this handsome game table will really make a statement.
There's nothing more fun than a board game for a family night in. Apples to Apples has become a classic and is sure to be a winner.
This is the ultimate board game: it's five games in one gorgeous box. I foresee many weekends of family fun ahead.
Take board games to the digital age! To me, the classics are the best, but here they are reinvented for a new generation.
Sometimes the hardest part about movie night is deciding on the movie. This collection of family favorites has something everyone will agree on.
No need to fight over the comfiest seat in the house when you have a spacious sectional. Cozy up in front of the television for a movie in this sleek and sophisticated couch. If you have young kids, you can customize it with easy-to-clean leather.
Ah, put your feet up and relax. This ottoman is like a pillow-top mattress just for your tired feet. You may have to get two so that there's enough for the feet in your family on movie night.
You've heard of the Barefoot Dreams robes, and now how about a cozy throw under which to cuddle as you watch your favorite flick?
Oooh, 3-D. Everything is better in 3-D. Who needs the movie theater when you have your own projector?
This is 106 inches of crystal-clear video pleasure. It retracts too. Need I say more?
