In this day and age CD's, DVD's and video games are some of the most popular gifts at Christmas time but with so many of them out there it can make choosing just one a nightmare. Here are three great picks that are great for just about any age.
Heartland season one DVD's- The first season of Heartland follows Amy Fleming and her family as her mother's tragic death brings them all back together and makes their bond stronger then ever but when Amy discovers she has her mother's gift for "horse whispering" her sister Lou get's the idea of turning her grandfathers ranch into a resort. Heartland is full of laughs and even a few tears I personally love the story line behind this show and have been glued to the screen each and every week it comes on. It is a great family show fit for all ages. Oh and not only is the series filmed in Alberta but many of the actors in the show are from Canada as well. The first season is sold in two separate parts but I highly recommend both.
What better gift is there then the gift of music? Aselin Debison's CD Bigger Than Me is a great choice for any age. I can best describe this album as being a sort of Celtic Pop. Her voice is nothing short of amazing as always but with her track record we have grown to expect that. Aselin released her first Album at the age of 11 (though she began performing from a much younger age) before she turned 16 she had already released her third album and performed for the Queen. You probably already heard her song Life on the radio, now let her sing to those you care about most. Her album can be found at most CD store's or bought online through Amazon.
I love how the Nintendo Wii has been able to get people up off the couch and a bit more active. I also love how they made the games so that whole family can get involved. It's for this reason that I am going to suggest Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games as a excellent Christmas present for anyone who owns a Wii. Not only is it fun to play on your own but its great with a crowd as well. After you finished gobbling down the Christmas turkey gather everyone around and have a game of hockey, skiing or even bobsledding. The characters are cute, the games are fun and its a great souvenir for the 2010 Olympics, you can not go wrong with this one.
If you are like 90% of us then the days leading up to Christmas are nothing but a blur. With so much to do it is hard to fit in extra time for shopping so why not do it all right from your living room? Not only will Amazon send your gifts right to your doorstep (or gift wrap them and send them to that special someone) but you can even find some items cheaper then you ever would in a store. Good deal right!?! Below are links which will take you directly to a Amazon page featuring each of the above items.
