Every year I give family gifts to each My sisters families and my parents. I have been giving year long gift certificates for Netflix for about a decade. They get to watch as many movies and shows as they have the time for. I now that it is a gift that everyone likes and that it definitely gets used. Having said this I have come to the opinion that this may not be the very best gift of it's type available since Netflix does not have as many movies as some other similar services might have. I have not decided but I may be looking at another similar service to gift to them this year.
