Not sure what to get someone for Christmas? Here are some great DVD boxsets that will make the best last minute Christmas gift ideas.

With the way things are going with streaming platforms removing content, DVD boxsets are still worth getting. Even before the likes of HBO Max started removing some of its original content, DVD boxsets were popular for fans of broadcast shows. Who wants to try to guess where a show is going next?

If you’re looking for last minute Christmas gift ideas, DVD boxsets are certainly worth getting. Here are some standout picks, especially when it comes to the crime drama fans out there.

Ray Donovan: The Complete Series

Did you love the first seven seasons of Ray Donovan? Of course, you did. And you were angry that the series was abruptly canceled. The good news is a movie was created to wrap up some of those niggling storylines.

Now it’s time to get everything in one place. Sure, you can watch on SHOWTIME, which is available via Amazon Channels, but what if you could own everything in one boxset?

All seven seasons and the movie are available in this boxset. You’ll also get your hands on more than two hours of special features. All of this is over 29 discs.

Dexter: The Complete Series and New Blood

Ready to add more Dexter to your life? SHOWTIME brought us the revival special New Blood. You can get that whole event series on DVD and Blu-ray. It could make the perfect last minute Christmas gift if you get the SteelBook option.

This is great if you already have the original series on DVD. What if you don’t? There’s some even better news. You can get the Complete Series and the New Blood release together in one boxset. This comes with all the episodes, hours of bonus footage, and much more. Don’t forget to take some time looking at Dexter’s Kill Room.

Last minute Christmas gift ideas for shorter attention spans

Not everyone wants to watch an eight-season series. People don’t have that time, and you may have friends who prefer the shorter seasons. There are still some great ideas for you.

Yellowjackets Season 1

If you have friends who just can’t wait for the second season, you’ll want to get them Yellowjackets Season 1 on DVD. This boxset includes all 10 episodes of the season, and it’s sure to keep people watching over and over again to figure out the clues.

There are also some great features, including one that looks at the creation of the story through a female lens.

The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series

Sticking with the horror genre, The Twilight Zone was a firm favorite back in the day. Jordan Peele brought us a revival, and while it wasn’t quite as good as the original, it was still great entertainment. Some of the storylines certainly had you up for a couple of nights.

The seven-disc boxset takes you through all episodes released. Then there’s the deleted scenes, the gag reels, the special features, and so much more. You’re getting two and a half episodes just of bonus content when you add up the time!

The Flight Attendant Seasons 1 and 2

Want a bit of comedy? Kaley Cuoco stars in The Flight Attendant, and this is certainly one of the last minute Christmas gift ideas you want to add to your list. The series is on HBO Max, and with Love Life and Westworld being removed, you just don’t want to risk the loss of this one.

Both seasons currently out are available in one boxset. It’s not clear if two seasons is definitely the end, but it feels like it. Cassie’s story has pretty much come to an end. We’ll leave you to decide when you watch the episodes and catch all the bonus features available.
