Game of Thrones Season 3

In my last post I wrote about how much i loved A Song Of Fire And Ice. I also mentioned thatGame of Thrones season 3 was coming out soon. Well, I got my hands on it as soon as it came out. I absolutely loved it. Even though it didn’t stick as close to the story line as the first DVD,s did it was still a bloody good series.

As I have always said you can usually tell how good a DVD, or any product for that matter, is by the reviews it gets. Well the reviews for the Game of Thrones Season 3 were really astounding. I’m sure The Game of Thrones Season 3 would make a great birthday, Fathers Day or even Christmas gift. Heck, I reckon there are even a lot of mothers out there that would love it.

If they haven’t got the first two seasons yet you could start off with them first and then lead up to season three of The Game of Thrones.

A Song of Ice and Fire A Game of Thrones

I love to read, and I know that I am not the only one. If you’re looking for a great gift for someone who also loves to read then I can highly recommend  A Game Of Thrones. This is especially true if they are a fan of the fantasy genre as A Game Of Thrones is truly an epic fantasy series. I have not read the like since reading the Lord Of The Rings.

A Game Of Thrones Review

I was fortunate enough to be given A Song Of Ice And Fire, a seven volume series of A Game Of Thrones. So far I’ve read four of the seven books and I can honestly say that I love it. A Song Of Ice And Fire includes the following volumes.

1 Game of Thrones
2 A Clash of Kings
3 A Storm of Swords 1: Steel And Snow
4 A Storm Of Sword 2: Blood And Gold
5 A Feast for Crows
6 A Dance with Dragons 1: Dream And Dust
7 A Dance with Dragons 2: After The Feast

Game of thrones

Most people these days love a bit of Sex Drugs and Rock’n Roll but unfortunately A Game Of Thrones takes place before drugs and rock’n roll, although it does have a lot of bards singing and drunkenness.   :tongue: That aside it does have a lot of sex and violence throughout the volumes. It also has a lot of intrigue which has kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what will happen next .

While most books have descriptive chapters George R.R. Martin has decided to use the main character as the chapter’s heading. So when the chapter is about Daenerys Targaryen it’s simply titled Daenerys, and when you’re reading it you are virtually seeing it through her eyes.

The only fault that I could find in A Game Of Thrones is that it the amount of characters in the series. There has been many a time when I’ve had to flick back through the pages in order to find out who exactly is being referred too. Perhaps this would be a lot easier if I had the Kindle Edition of a Game Of Thrones which would be a lot easier than having to carry the 5 book series around. :lol:

What The Song Of Ice And Fire Is About

Like I said at the beginning of the post I’m half way through the series but so far I can tell you it’s set in the contents of Westeros and Essos. You can liken the characters to the knights we used to have all those years ago. There are a lot of tournaments, chivalry, love, betrayals, revelry, wanton lust, brutality and the list goes on.

Once you get into it you realise that many of the characters are not satisfied with their lot and are out to improve it. This leads to a dynastic war where several families fight for the control of Westeros. Whilst reading it I’ve seen the birth of Dragons and the dragon mother herself. I’ve met the Others and the walking dead! I’ve seen the growing of magic which becomes more prevalent once the dragons are born

What I love about A Game Of Thrones is that you never know what is around the corner. With a lot of books I’ve read you can almost guess what the plot is about. Not so with A Game Of Thrones. There have been times when I’m sure I’ve worked out who the hero of A Game of Thrones is only to find he gets killed off.

Once my kids worked out how much I loved my birthday present, they bought the first edition of Game of Thrones Disc Set.

If there is anything you would like to know about A Game of Thrones feel free to ask in the comment section.

Where You Can Purchase A Song Of Ice And Fire

Canon PowerShot HS MP CMOS Digital Camera

I know that even though this post is going to recommend the Canon PowerShot as a great Christmas gift there is going to be heaps of folk out there who will disagree with me. Not because the Canon PowerShot isn’t a great camera, which it is, but because they feel the smartphone’s photo taking capabilities is enough. As a Smart Phone owner I can tell you that the smartphone capabilities just doesn’t cut it when it comes to taking real good quality images. How can it when it doesn’t have the same quality lens. Shit, when you think about it you can hardly see the lens  :tongue:

Canon PowerShot 30x Optical Zoom

What the Canon Powershot has the all smartphones lack is a 30x Optical Zoom! That’s not digital zoom but a pure optical zoom. Its lens is as good as a 24-720mm in 35mm format SLR camera. What’s even better is that you can use it while taking videos.

Another plus for the camera is its compact size. Yet even though it is rather compact it pack a whole heap of features. I’ve already mentioned the zoom capability of its lens but it has so much more to offer.  Read the rest of this entry


Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch A Great Gift Idea

I’ve done a fair few posts on different watches and what a great gift idea they are. There was the post on a  ladies watch which I’m sure most women would love to get as a gift. Then there The Boomox Gold Retro watch, which is a real trend setting watch as well as a head turner.

There’s also the Fish Finder digital watch, great for the fisherman and for those who are said to “have everything”. Truth be told, watches are so much more than a fashion statement these days. As you can see, what with the ever growing technology, its no surprise watches are starting to become a lot more than a simple time piece. So much more that I predict watches are going to become a lot more in demand in the very near future.

Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch

Which brings me to this weeks best gift idea, the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch. This is no ordinary watch. Nope, this is smarter than your average watch. Which is why they call it the SmartWatch.  :crazy: Some of its unique features include a full-colour Super AMOLED display, a built-in camera as well as S Voice functionality.

One very important point is that you would only buy this watch for the Galaxy Smartphone owner as it pairs up with it seamlessly. It vibrates when getting notifications, looks great on the wrist, takes photos and allows you to take calls while driving.

Galaxy Smartwatch

 

Actually, the best way to learn a lot more about this smartwatch is to read the reviews from some of the very satisfied Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch. Read the rest of this entry


Jewellery As A Gift

My last post showed you the stunning Swarovski Crystal Elements ring. Women love the ring because of it’s beauty and because they love receiving jewellery as a gift. What woman wouldn’t want to wear a beautiful ring to accessorise their outfit. The fact that the ring uses the much sought after Swarovski crystals only accentuates it’s beauty. Men love giving that ring as a great gift idea partly because they know the lady of their affection will love it and partly because it doesn’t create a huge void in their bank account.

This brings me to todays post, the second of a series of posts of exquisite jewellery gift ideas. I picked this next gift idea because I found the Regal Style Swarovski Elements Crystal Necklace absolutely beautiful. Some of the descriptive phrases describing the necklace below include.

  • “…most beautiful crystal necklace I bought so far”
  • “….it is absolutely breathtaking”
  • “….Absolutely gorgeous”
  • Just beautiful jewerly

 

As you can see it got great reviews, and no wonder, check out the image of it and judge for yourself. Read the rest of this entry


Swarovski Crystal Elements Ring

Carnevale Sterling Silver Swarovski Elements

 

I’ve had a few people contact me saying they love my great gift ideas but that the last few were a bit out of reach, cost wise. I totally sympathise with them too and I apologise. It’s just that I do get a little carried away when I come across something that I know would make a great gift. This post will address that issue and is all about Swarovski Crystal Elements. I’ve chosen Swarovski Crystal Elements because everyone knows that Swarovski are very well known for the extremely high quality of their crystals.

In case you haven’t heard the phrase Swarovski Crystal Elements and are wandering if they are actually as good as Swarovski Crystals? The answer is yes! They’re merely Swarovski Crystals that have been created for sale to jewellers and others so they can create their own exquisite designs using the beautiful Swarovski crystals to inspire them.

This means there will be a lot of Swarovski Crystal Elements inspired jewellery out there so you can expect quite a few of these posts. This being the first of them.

Swarovski Crystal Elements Ring

Swarovski Crystal Elements Ring

 

As you can see from the above design the Carnevale Sterling Silver Swarovski Elements ring is an exquisite peace of jewellery. One that would make the perfect gift no matter what the occasion. I won’t post any product description or history of this beautiful ring as you can get all that from Amazon by simply clicking on the ‘more information’ icon below.

What I can tell you is that you can buy other beautifully designed matching Swarovski Crystal Elements jewellery. What a great idea for future gift ideas. We all know how much women love to accessorise and what could be better than a matching set of jewellery? Take the Carnevale Sterling Silver Colored Hoop Earrings with Swarovski Elements for example.

Jokes For You

I decided today that I wanted this site to be more than just a place for you to find great gift ideas. I thought it would be nice if every now and again you could drop in to visit and find a post that will actually brighten your day. To meet that end I’ve decided to add a new category, Jokes For You! This category will be of posts specifically designed to make you smile, at the very least, or fall off your chair laughing, at best.

Jokes For You #1

For the first edition of Jokes For you I have put together a video of myself telling two jokes. It is the first joke in the Laughaholics series.I thought you may appreciate this one as you can actually hear what I sound like.  :tongue: Oh, as I’m an Aussie I may let a few swear words slip every now and again so you may want to keep that in mind.  ;) Read the rest of this entry


GoPro HD HERO2: Outdoor Edition

I first wrote about the GoPro way back when I included it in some great Valentine Gift Ideas. Although in that post I recommended the GoPro HERO3. For this post however I’m going to recommend the GoPro HD HERO2: Outdoor Edition. Why am I recommending an older version of the GoPro camera? A very good question, and the answer is because this particular camera has more positive customer reviews than the newer version.

I don’t know about you but I never go out and buy the latest product on the market, it doesn’t matter if it’s a camera or the latest PlayStation. The reason being that there are times when those products are faulty and it’s not until the next edition that the bugs have been ironed out.

Well, after reading the reviews on the newer GoPro I’ve decided to go for the GoPro HD HERO2: Outdoor Edition! The reviews on the GoPro HD HERO2: Outdoor Edition are more positive and include people who have only recently purchased the camera. Read the rest of this entry


The Solowheel A Great Gift Idea

Man, you’re going to love this next gift idea! Why? Because it ticks all the right boxes. Who’s it good for? Gee, I’m so glad you’re asking all the right questions.  :clap: Seriously though, the Solowheel would be great for birthdays, Christmas, fathers and even mothers day presents, as long as they’re not too fragile that is. I wouldn’t give it to an older person who is likely to break a hip were they to fall over from riding their new toy.

Then again it’s more than just a toy, and more expensive than your normal toy too. You’re probably wondering what the Solowheel is and in as few words as possible, it’a a people mover. But it’s more fun than a car. Way more fun than a bike and almost gets as many stares as some guy driving a Ferrari. Heck, who am I kidding, you probably get more stares riding a Solowheel than if you were driving a Ferarri. I always thought that the Segway would be the fun way to get around but that was before I saw the Solowheel. Read the rest of this entry


RingStix Best Toy Gift Ever

RingStix Best Toy For 2013

There are so many toys out there that you could give for a gift, so much so that I’m sure most people have no idea which way to turn when deciding which one to get. Good job that the Gift Guru is here to help you out isn’t it?  :whistle:

I’ll be doing lots of post on what toys make great gifts but for this post I’ve decided on one that is suited for both boys and girls. Having said that the manufacturer suggests it’s best suited for kids over the age of 10 and after reading the reviews I tend to agree with them. Those same reviews also suggest that the RingStix is very popular amongst the adults.

This is one of the main reasons why I believe this would make a great toy, because it can be enjoyed by all thereby bringing the family together. It also gets them to go outside where they can get some fresh air and exercise. So much better than sitting in front of the TV or computer playing games. Read the rest of this entry
