Pick Out the Very Best Gifts for Family & Friends

A guide by G.E. Jordan

Products sampled from this guide:
These are some wonderful things I have purchased for my family and friends, with a few added that are on my list of upcoming purchases depending on the budget. I have made comments on some of my favorites.


Cuisinart CBK-200 2-Pound Convection Automatic Breadmaker.
Cats - The Musical (Ultimate Edition).
Family Tree Maker 2006 Deluxe [Old Version].
Wonderful family activity that lets your kids know how special their heritage is. It is also a great activity for the foster kids, to let them know how very special they are.

MasterCook Deluxe 8.0 [OLD VERSION].
In need all the help I can get in this area.

Wallace Rose Point 4-Piece Sterling Silver Flatware Place Setting, Place Size.
Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith (Widescreen Edition).
A Time To Love.
Celestron Firstscope 114EQ 114mm Reflector Telescope.
Great and affordable, for my kids to get interested in the stars.

The Bette Davis Collection (The Star / Mr. Skeffington / Dark Victory / Now, Voyager / The Letter).
The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Wood Chinese Checkers Game.
Friends - The One with All Ten Seasons (Limited Edition).
Big splurge, but I have loved this series from the start and was sorry to see it end.


Senseo Dark Roast Coffee Pods, 4.41 Ounce, 18-Count Pods (Pack of 4).
This coffee really does have a great flavor, and I was skeptical at first.

Oliver!.
Darling Lili.
Vertigo (Collector's Edition).
This is my favorite of all Hitchcock films. And I love Jimmy Stewart especially.

Timeless.
Chess Teacher (styles may vary).
The Spider and the Fly.
An Undone Fairy Tale.
Burt's Bees Hand Repair Kit.
I like the products of this company and their philosophy. And they make great gifts.

Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Graphing Calculator.
Fiddler on the Roof (Special Edition).
Terrific musical, and one of my favorites, but very long.

Baby Annabell Function Doll.
Philips HeartStart Home Defibrillator (AED).
This is definitely on the upcoming purchases list. Surely they could make this more affordable for everyone, not just wealthy people.

Thanks For The Memory...The Great American Songbook IV.
Sings the Peggy Lee Songbook.
Breakfast at Tiffany's.
Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume One.
Star Wars: Clone Wars - Volume Two.
Nice to watch these on DVD. When they were on television, they had too many commercials.

Barbie Collector Dolls Of The World Festivals Of The World Chinese New Year Barbie Doll.
I love the Dolls of the World for their diversity.

Chaos and Creation in the Backyard.
The Oprah Winfrey Show: 20th Anniversary Collection.
Iím glad I will now get to see a lot of what I missed being too busy at certain times of the day to turn on the TV and too forgetful to set VCR timers.

Tivoli Audio Tivoli One WHT Silver/White.
A little pricey for a radio, but nice.

Alexander - Director's Cut (Two-Disc Special Edition).
Set: The Family Game of Visual Perception.
Polly Pocket Cool Careers Gift Set.
They donít gender type the careers; that is nice for girls.

Remington MS2-370 Titanium MicroScreen 2 Screen Shaver.
Dachshunds For Dummies.
Thelonious Monk Quartet with John Coltrane at Carnegie Hall.
Billy Joel Greatest Hits: Vol. 1-2 (2CD).
Movin' Out (Based on the Songs and Music of Billy Joel) (2002 Original Broadway Cast).
