So, our good friends are having their basement finished. It's huge--almost 2000 sq ft. We are going to the unveiling next Sunday, and we'd like to bring a gift. What says: Congrats on spending 150K!! LOL

LOL at some of these responses.

So, they have it set up in one section as a movie theatre (with popcorn maker) and they had a 15ft bar installed so they have the liquor. This is why I need ideas!!!! UGH. I don't think flowers will work lol

150k on a 2000sq ft basement is pretty good pricing. The house is 6000sq ft. He makes 300k a year so just stop with your jealousy

A subscription for Netflix, HBO Max, britBox, Discovery Channel or some other streaming service that includes their personal interests?

A Boxwalla subscription?

A subscription to Rolling Stone magazine or something else with a lot of TV and movie reviews?

And I'll still say that booze is an option. Maybe buy wine produced by people in the movie/entertainment industry? You could attach photos of the celebrity over the labels maybe. https://www.delish.com/entertaining/...lebrity-wines/

There are many popcorn subscriptions. Whole kernels and already popped. But I'd be getting a variety of popcorn cones/gift basket from Popcornopolis. Huge variety of flavors and that stuff is the bomb! (Check Costco online- they often. Have popcornopolis gift baskets at a greatly reduced price.)
