    When we spotted this powerful mini projector in Amazon’s Black Friday sales, we couldn’t resist the temptation to upgrade our home movie nights – especially since it’s a whopping 30% off at the minute.

    With cinemas closed in higher tier areas, you can recreate the experience at home with the help of this handy video projector and a blank wall (or a taped up white bedsheet, if we’re getting fancy). As the festive season kicks in, curling up on the couch with mulled wine, a duvet and Netflix’s entire cheesy Christmas film selection playing is a must.

    Don’t forget to queue up a string of never ending commercials, someone to kick the back of your chair and a batch of microwave popcorn for authenticity.
