I remember HMV when I was a kid and you went there purely for the latest music albums.
Nowadays whether it be birthdays, special occasions or even Father’s Day, hint hint, HMV have you covered with a lot more than just music.
They still have a huge range of music to choose from and most importantly for one of our girls now, a great selection of vinyl records! Who’d have thought a few years back we’d be saying vinyls are back in for teenagers?!
I think it’s great though, how many of you reading remember having to wait for your favourite artist to release their album so you could travel into town with your saved up pocket money and buy a physical CD?! I’m all for speed and ease and downloading music is really cool, but it doesn’t give you that same buzz of buying a proper CD. The recent rise in popularity for vinyls is bringing that buzz back.
HMV are so much more than music nowadays. They have high quality tech such as earphones, headphones and speakers, they have games consoles, DVDs and even a load of merch ranging from Marvel and DC to Rick and Morty.
We’re talking T-Shirts, mugs, key rings, collectibles and all sorts! Have you seen those POP figures? It’s so hard not to jump in and start collecting these, ALL of these!
We’ve been in to HMV recently to pick up gifts for our teenage daughter and Donetta’s 60 odd year old dad! Our 5 year old lad loves the Marvel merch, our other daughter is always after a T-Shirt and I like all the tech, they’ve got every angle covered.
We picked up some headphones for Corben to have in the car from our local HMV, Joker ones, they’re AWESOME. We also have a heat sensitive Breaking Bad mug from there too, it’s blank until you fill it with your hot drink and BOOM the photo appears!
In case you miss the hint though, there’s only one particular angle you need covering this week, Father’s Day! Is your dad a Rick and Morty fan, grab him a T-Shirt and a DVD, does he already have a record player, sort him out with a new vinyl, or is he in need of a new Bluetooth speaker, there’s a good fair few to choose from.
Let us know what you’re getting your old man this year, I won’t tell! 😃
This post is in collaboration with HMV. I’m really happy to have teamed up with a brand that holds many great memories from years gone by 😃
