In case you are stuck for ideas for Christmas gifts for your nearest and dearest and you know that they would love a book or DVD why don’t you visit The Multiverse Store on Amazon? In it you can find almost all of the books, music and DVDs that I have reviewed over the last couple of years. You can also see my picks for writers and for the fashion obsessed person in your life. Some gems include:
A classic movie that almost anyone will enjoy, The Sting rightfully won 7 Oscars in 1973. It’s a brilliant film starring the unbeatable combo of Robert Redford and Paul Newman and one of my favourites. Great for Dad who will probably remember it from when it first came out, great for Mum as she can drool over the male leads, and great for a mate that hasn’t seen it as they’re in for a classic treat!
I was devastated (OK maybe devastated is a bit strong) when the Harry Potter series came to an end with the final movie this year. If you have any Potter fans in your life then this reasonably priced boxset is a brilliant present. And if you haven’t watched them then you should definitely self-gift! Wait for a cold and miserable weekend in January, light the fire, get some popcorn going and settle in for hours of fun.
For the rock music fan in your life Bill Graham’s autobiography is a great read. Graham was the legendary promoter who ran the Fillmore Ballroom in San Francisco, a place where icons such as Janis Joplin, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Cream and of course The Grateful Dead played. Graham’s knack for telling a great story combined with the people he met make this a great source of amusement and rock history.
For a completely bonkers and totally brilliant music gift you could do a lot worse than the Nippon Girls album I blogged about ages ago. The music nerd in your life hopefully won’t have this obscure gem and I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t love it.
The above are just some of the things you can find if you spend a few minutes browsing. And if you’re looking for further inspiration or indeed a gift for me (!!) you could check out my ever expanding wishlist on Amazon. It’s so big that it can almost be seen from space at this stage.
