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!
