Shopping Simon’s Christmas List

If you’re wondering what to get me (or your boyfriend, son or husband) for Christmas this year, here’s a list of all the things that might interest you, all of which are coming out very soon…

First off, I’ve got to include The Dark Knight Rises which was a brilliant ending to an epic trilogy. It’s released on BluRay on Monday 03 December and is available for £15 from HMV in Commercial Road, Bournemouth and HMV in Above Bar Street, Southampton. If your husband or boyfriend is a James Bond fan then they’ll love the new Bond Box Set that’s just been released which features all 22 Bond films on Blu Ray. Get yours from Blockbuster, for £99. If you’re feeling particularly generous then you may want to splash out on a pair of men’s Chugalug Sorel Boots. These hard-wearing boots are perfect for long hikes or any other outdoor activities. They’re available in either black or mud colours and are available to buy online for £195 from The new Casio G-Shock GD watch is a must for those that are looking for a

really cool but practical watch. It features a shock-resistant plastic case as well as a stop watch and countdown timer. The watch is available to buy for £110 from ASOS ( If you’re buying a Christmas gift for someone who is a massive Beatles fan, then I recommend buying the Complete Beatles Discography which is being released on vinyl. Each album is accompanied by a 252-page hardbound book in a gorgeous box set. The box set is a limited edition – there are only 50,000 copies worldwide. It’s available to buy from HMV in London Road, Portsmouth for £400. And now, just in case you’re wondering… Here’s what not to buy me for Christmas (or I’ll wipe you off my Christmas Card list): Rod Stewart’s new album ‘Merry Christmas, Baby.’ By Simon Carlé.
