Popcorn Popping Under My Tree

It has become a tradition for my boys and I to pop a bowl of popcorn, curl up in Mom's bed, and chill out with a great Netflix pic on Friday nights.  Unfortunately for all of us, the popcorn popper has been dropped upside down one too many times and has been limping along for quite awhile.  It's time to buy a new one and since popcorn and a movie always make great gifts, I thought I'd share some of our favorites and invite you to join us with your own kernel traditions!

First, a look at the popper that has served us so well...
Such a workhorse, but it is a little awkward and hot to tip upside down into the bowl.
Under $30
Practicality has me leaning towards buying an air popper like the one I remember having as a kid...

Makes healthy popcorn with no oil.
4.5 star rating for less than $20
 But I would love the flash of color from one of these up on top of my cupboard...
Also healthy with no oil.  Has an ON/OFF switch
Under $20
4.5 Star Rating with ON/OFF switch
It will be no surprise that my boys want this popcorn popper...
Under $30
Since our movie night has become such a fun weekly tradition, it might be really cool to have one of these...
Popcorn pops right into that cute cup!
Reviews suggest this would be good for a group of 2-4.
Under $20
Under $25
It won't work in our kitchen set-up, but an old-school soul might love popping their corn the traditional way...
Stainless steel and wipes clean.
Under $30
Believe it or not, we have no microwave, but if we did, I would definitely need one of these... 

So much healthier than regular microwave popcorn!
Durable glass container with silicone lid
Under $25.00
And, finally, the popcorn popper we all need to have ready to pull out for a party...
