Today’s post is aimed at young people who can’t seem to find the perfect gift for older relatives like parents and grandparents. Here’s a tip: the olds like music and TV shows from when they were young like you. It’s called nostalgia. And the most part, they’re not technologically savvy. They don’t get their music from Spotify or Pandora. They don’t stream video from Netflix or Hulu. They think a torrent is heavy rainstorm.
Yes, boomers and seniors like CDs and DVDs. It’s technology they understand and can hold in their hands. These are people who still cling to landlines, own VCRs and buy cars with CD changers. Give them something they’ll find comfortably familiar: a CD or DVD box set from Time Life. For a limited time, there’s free shipping on all orders.
If you’re over 50, you’re probably familiar with the Music of Your Life radio format, broadcasting audio nostalgia since 1978. It’s currently heard on more than 50 radio stations nationwide, playing a wide variety of popular music from decades past. In an exciting collaboration, Time Life has now joined with Music of Your Life radio DJ (and ex-Hollywood Squares host) Peter Marshall to assemble a 10-CD collection of timeless love songs from the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
The Harry Potter Chess Set may be the perfect gift for fans. This collectible set recreates Wizard’s Chess as played in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This set is a huge upgrade from the inexpensive Harry Potter chess sets you may have seen. Each of the 32 authentic replica chess pieces is a scaled-down replica of the movie version, and has a thrilling special effect inspired by the film. You’ll see when you watch the video below. The chess board lights up, as does the Queen. Two magic wands mysteriously guide your Rooks across the board. Thirty-two illustrated Harry Potter Chess Manuals are included to introduce beginners to the rules of Wizard’s Chess. As with any fine collectible, each set includes a signed certificate of authenticity that confirms your set is an authentic replica from the movie.
The musical landscape of the 1960s wasn’t all about sex, drugs and rock and roll. Radio and record racks made plenty of room for Andy Williams, Bobby Vinton, Dionne Warwick, Petula Clark, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Al Hirt, Ed Ames, Vikki Carr, The Lettermen, Shriley Bassey, and many other artists that weren’t quite ready to rock. They’re all here in this new Time-Life CD collection, Pop Memories of the ’60s. No Beatles, Stones, Cream, Hendrix, Blue Cheer, Jefferson Airplane or Led Zeppelin. Just easy listening goodness. Forget the Xanax. Just rip these discs to your iPod, slap on the earbuds and experience instant bliss.
Your Savvy Shopper is a HUGE fan of classic country music. This week I’m excited to introduce The Golden Age of Country 10-CD Collection from Time-Life to a jaded world desperately in need of a dose of real, authentic, classic country music from the 1950s and 60s. Country artists tended to re-record most of their repertoire every time they changed record labels, but Time-Life keeps it real by always using the original classic recordings. Hank Williams, George Jones, Buck Owens, Ray Price, Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Elvis, Roger Miller, and many, many more. No matter what kind of contemporary music you like best, some of its roots are here in classic country. I’ve spent over thirty years collecting these songs on LP, cassette, CD and MP3. With The Golden Age of Country, you can get them all in one collection. The well-produced infomercial is hosted by country legend Mickey Gilley and TV personality Lorianne Chase from Crook and Chase.
