Buzz Gift Guide: Grandpa Knows Best

Don't forget Grandpa when holiday shopping this season! Today's holiday gift guide suggestions will hopefully appeal to these beloved older gentlemen in your life.

The miniseries Band of Brothers is interesting enough for everyone in the family, and Grandpa might find it particularly relevant. Based on the bestselling book by Stephen E. Ambrose, the miniseries tells the remarkable story of Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division.

For some lighter fare, check out the definitive DVD collection of The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson episodes, called Heeere's Johnny.

In case your grandfather doesn't yet own Tom Brokaw's book outlining the greatness that was The Greatest Generation, he might enjoy having this on his bookshelf.

Clint Eastwood's Oscar-nominated war films Flags of Our Fathers and Letters From Iwo Jima are beautifully and respectfully done. Watching these films together will be a meaningful experience for you and your grandfather. Check out the five-disc box set with both movies and all sorts of extras.

Band of Brothers, I think, would make a great gift for anyone who enjoys finding more about historical events or a history aficiando. I personally enjoyed the series very much.
