PBS Distribution AND Public Media Distribution Complete Series Box Sets Perfect for everyone on your Holiday shopping list

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of promoting them  I was not paid to write this post
I remember several year ago my hubby and I were in Barnes and Nobels,  I for the life of me couldn't find a new book series I wanted to start.
It is okay that happens to me a lot, getting in book ruts are kind of my thing.  No need to worry though whenever it happens I always get check out the movie section and start a new TV series.  I picked up several and after process of elimination decided on Downton Abbey I heard some pretty good things about them.  So home I went planning to watch an episode or two..... Several hours later I had pulled an all nighter and watched the entire season!  Before I went to bed I stuck in a rush order for season 2 and 3 (The only seasons out at that time)  and left my mom & dad a voicemail telling them I had a new show for them!  It is safe to say it was love at first view for me and Downton, but Downton just happened to be a gateway show.  I found myself watching all of PBS's series and even their mini events! Death comes to Pemberle was one of my favorites :)
PBS has great shows and something forever one, that is why it comes as no surprise to me that this holiday season they are offering some pretty epic gifts

Kate & Mim-Mim: A Christmas Wish

In the extended adventure “A Christmas Wish,” Kate and Mim-Mim with their friends in the fantasy world of Mimiloo use Tack’s letter launcher to send their Christmas wishes to Santa! When the letter launcher malfunctions, can Kate and Mim-Mim save Christmas?

In addition to this Christmas adventure, this DVD features two additional tales in which Kate and Mim-Mim go snow bowling, get stuck inside an ice cave, and try to find their friend Chilly in order to prevent the Winter Waterfalls from melting! These two stories are called “Snow Bowling” and “Chilly the Snowman.”

“Roald Dahl’s The BFG”

This DVD includes the digitally restored version of this classic animated film along with two special features – a Never-before-seen Roald Dahl Documentary and Before/After Restoration Video. The documentary features an interview with Roald Dahl in which he talks about several of the well-known books he has written including “The BFG,” “The Witches,” and “Matilda.”

If you’re not familiar with “The BFG” book or this film, Sophie, an orphan, is snatched from her bed by an awesome giant who whisks her away on a magical, thrilling, and funny adventure. Unlike scary giants such as the Bloodbottler, the Fleshlumpeater, and the Bonecruncher, the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) is a good giant who blows sweet dreams into the bedroom windows of children as they slumber. When Sophie learns that a monstrous crew of meanies is off to England to gobble up innocent boys and girls, she sets out to stop them once and for all, with the help of her new, rather large friend.
