HMV Canada Wish List #HMVHoliday The Great Gatsby on DVD #cbias #shop

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and its client.

Love love love this time of year! Malls filled with happy, jolly festive music. Decorations everywhere you look. Santa sitting in the mall listening to children’s wishes. Fabulous deals in every store and a chance to get that item you have been dreaming about all year long. 

I am  a mother of four children aged 5 to 19. The items on my children’s wish list are long and all over the place. My youngest wants toys, my oldest wants clothes. My teen boys want things to entertain them, electronics, movies and music. My oldest son is always waiting for the latest movie to come out. He watches the trailers over and over. reads up on the reviews and listens to all the interviews before watching it. He knows most of what is happening, before it even happens. For him I always pick a few of the latest titles and wrap them up. He, like his dad also loves music. Lately they have been buying CDS for the car. I love this idea, as long as it is something we all want to listen to. HMV has everything I need for his list. The perfect place for the holiday music lover on your list. They have the latest DVD, music accessories and more. 

HMV entrance

On a recent trip to the mall I stopped in at hmv and picked up The Great Gatsby on DVD for my son. 

Would-be writer Nick Carraway leaves the Midwest and travels to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby and across the bay from his cousin Daisy Buchanan and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom. Through them, Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich and their illusions, loves and deceits.

Rated PG13 and staring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire I figured this would be one my teen son would love to watch. Since they have everything so easy to find and categorized, I found it fast! The price made it a very affordable gift purchase. 

HMV movie

I found it in the DVD section under “G”


The cover looked great! Reading through about the movie I was excited to buy it. This is going to be a great gift and I can not wait to watch it with my family.

  2. You've reminded me of the movie. I studied Great Gatsby in highschool (years ago), so watching the film sounds like a great follow up. Thank you for the reminder 🙂

    my daughter loved the book and the movie–Leonardo is on my top 10 list of fav actors!! thanks for sharing–have to pick this up for her for Christmas 🙂

  4. I loved the book, I have not had a chance to watch the movie yet, though. I cannot wait to see it though.
