Still haven’t checked off all of the names on your holiday shopping list? We’re here to help, and we brought back-up in the form of the Disney Store’s excellent Christmas shopping selection. The Insider has been digging through the shelves at our local Disney Store and browsing the many sections of their website to put together a Holiday Gift Guide of our very own.
We present you with two versions: Adults & Kids. But don’t feel limited to just one or the other! Click on each to download and print at home, and carry with you to your local Disney Store for inspiration.
Read on for some of our favorite gift ideas to help you with your own shopping this season:
When Christmas morning rolls around, most families share a similar routine: stockings first, then the big gifts. Here are some fun small items that fit nicely into a stocking.
Vinylmation Jingle Smells – These special edition Vinylmation are dressed in seasonal attire and come equipped with special fragrances that reflect their visual theme. Goofy smells like peppermint, while Mickey smells like chocolate cookies. They even have ribbons to hang them from your tree, if you want.
Jack Skellington Socks, Gloves and More – Socks?! Well, not just any socks. The Disney Store has plenty of Nightmare Before Christmas themed goods, like Jack Skellington gloves, scarves, and–yes–socks.
So much of the holiday season is centered around the kitchen, with families and friends coming together around their favorite foods and the all-too-rare opportunity to cook and eat together. The Disney Store offers a range of items that dress up your kitchen and the rest of your home in festive, cheerful imagery featuring none other than Mickey and Friends that make great gifts.
Mickey Apron – Decked with wreaths and tied with red ribbons, these Mickey Mouse aprons are a great opportunity to wrap up the chef in your life with some Disney holiday spirit. Not to mention, they can be embroidered with a name or personal message.
Mickey Mouse Tea Set & Kettle – Just in time for Saving Mr. Banks, the story of Walt Disney and P.L. Travers’ collaboration on the film Mary Poppins, give the gift of hot tea with milk and–you guessed it–a spoonful of sugar. The Disney Store also offers not one but two different Mickey kettles, so it’s likely that one matches your style.
When it comes time to step your gift giving up a notch, Disney Store has a variety of high end collectibles that might be just what the object of your holiday shopping has always wanted.
Giclée Prints by Michelle St.Laurent – Created by artist Michelle St.Laurent, these premium prints feature bright, fun imagery, such as Mickey Mouse getting caught by surprise with a series of kisses from his sweetheart Minnie. They’re available on paper, canvas, or framed in a variety of ways.
Cinderella Glass Slipper by Arribas – One of the most iconic items from the history of film, Disney or otherwise, has to be Cinderella’s glass slipper. A symbol of romance, as well as wishes and dreams fulfilled, these glass slippers can also be a part of your home’s decor.
Adult Clothes & Accessories
Disney apparel isn’t just about sporting a pair of Mickey ears on the top of your head, though there is plenty of room for that too!
Snow White & Evil Queen Tees for Women – It’s time to choose sides: is your wardrobe good or evil? These shirts feature striking graphic design that portrays either Snow White in silhouette holding a bright red apple, or the Evil Queen smiling smugly with the word “It’s Good to be Bad.”
Santa Mickey Mouse Sweatshirt – Created especially for Disneyland Resort, Santa Mickey provides a little extra warmth for those winter months spent at the Park.
Mickey Mouse Titleist Golf Hat – Two brands known for being leaders in their own spheres have come together to contribute to this classy baseball hat. A very sporty Mickey helps shield some sun away so you can focus on sinking that hole in one.
Walt Disney Studios Tote – It’s hard not to like this simple canvas tote bag, which is not just versatile but quite nice to look at, too, with a famous Walt Disney quote printed across the back: “It all started with a mouse.”
Superheroes & Princesses – The world of Disney includes some of the most beloved children’s characters for both boys and girls. We like this colorful striped Spider-Man tee for boys, and this Sofia Deluxe PJ Pal for girls, which includes a ruffled tulle tutu–you know, for sleeping in!
Cars & Dolls – The Cars 16 Pack Die Cast Gift Set has all of the fastest Cars characters to hit the track, including Lightning McQueen and Francesco Bernoulli, among others. (Sorry Mater fans, racers only!) For animation lovers of a softer sort, the Animators’ Collection dolls like Rapunzel feature young, expressive versions of your favorite Princesses, modeled off of sketches by famous Disney animators Glen Keane and Mark Henn.
Phew! We hope this Gift Guide helps you find that special something for every name on your list. Keep in mind that with the holiday shopping season in full swing, stock of these items cannot be guaranteed at every Disney Store location. Check online at DisneyStore.com and use their Store Locator to call ahead regarding your local store’s inventory. Happy Holidays!
