I’m starting to sense around me the usual consternation about gifts that starts reaching a crescendo this time of year. And so when I have an inspired idea, I’ll try and help out by posting it for my readers.
First Idea–a gift my son was very inspired in selecting for a friend and which seemed to be extremely well received: James Bond – 22 Film Collection [DVD] 
Last Christmas Uncle Bruce introduced us to The Big Bang Theory – Complete Season 1-5 [DVD]
and i have to say it added levity to our entire year as we grew addicted to the series–a great gift!!.
As long as we are on the subject of humour, the second series that makes us laugh even on rainy and grey London days is
Miranda – Series 1-2 box set [DVD]
From these recommendations you would think all we do is watch sitcoms in our house and….you wouldn’t be too far from the truth. In fact we’re even becoming too much like the characters we watch. For some reason the kids have been calling me Claire Dunphy lately.
I don’t know what they’re talking about. Modern Family – Season 1-3 [DVD]
On a more serious note Uncle Bruce, who has been spot on of late also gave us The Complete Roots Collection: Original Series (30th Anniversary Edition) [DVD] which kept our family glued to the screen for a week as my family was when i was a kid.
Another Good Gift:
My son also seems to love Terminator 1-4 (4-Disc Set) [DVD] 
And last but not least, my sister thinks I need to catch up on Mad Men 1-5 [DVD]
