As today's kids grow older, they'll one day realize that the holiday season is a real pain in a faux Santa Claus' ass. Buying everyone gifts, wrapping paper, and, hell, even tape and scissors is financially devastating, so once December 26th rolls around, it's not uncommon to find people who'd usually be out partying and splashing cash instead laying low indoors until New Year's Eve.

The best thing you can do to repay these generous peeps is hit them off with a few movies and/or television programs in home video formats. That way, they can conserve funds, remain at home, and kill several hours per day catching up with some quality acting, slick direction, and superior visual storytelling.

For the best movies and TV shows to bless them with, click through our list of 25 DVDs and Blu-rays We Want This Year.
