Buying a gift for a Disney fan? Have we got the holiday gift guide for you…Hakuna matata (no worries)! Get to shopping with this ultimate list that is sure to satisfy your Disney lover and make you the ultimate hero this holiday season.
Happy Holidays, everyone! It’s the most wonderful time of the year, right? As Rafiki said in The Lion King, “it is time”…to get shopping for those die hard Disney fans. Seeing as how I am a Disney fan-atic, it’s helped me craft this holiday gift guide chock full of goodies a Disney geek would love to find under the tree. This post contains some affiliate links.
I love these because they are inexpensive and stackable. You can wear a few of them or 10-12 at a time. And the fun comes in selecting which ones to buy. My favorites have some kind of significance or remind me of a Disney experience, like my first trip to Disneyland, my daughter dressing up as Tinker Bell, or BB-8 which reminds me of my Star Wars loving son.
Speaking of BB-8, last year’s big hit at our house was the which can be remote controlled by phone. My tween played with his nonstop after Christmas last year, but adults were just as fascinated with it as the kids! In fact, he drew a crowd in the lobby of the Disney Fantasy driving it around during our Spring Break cruise.
Now being added to the 2016 wish list is the Star Wars Force Band, which controls the BB-8 app-enabled Droid toy from Sphero through gestures like Force push, pull and drive.
Or you can buy both together. Whatever you choose, I highly recommend you buy from a reputable dealer like Amazon or Bed Bath and Beyond because we had to leave ours out for Santa to return and bring a new one when ours stopped charging. Even so, I would wholeheartedly buy this little guy all over again, and we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Force Band.
Show a Disney lover you care by gifting them the ultimate expression of Disney fandom: an annual pass. (Just make sure they don’t already have one first!) The price tag is a bit steep ($ 750) but if your Disney fan plans on traveling to Walt Disney World to do the parks more than a few times in a year, an Annual Pass may actually be a money saver. Here’s a great post by my fellow TravelingMom Amy about the Annual Pass.
Disney geeks LOVE to decorate with Mickey, so why not add some bling to the Christmas tree with a Mickey Mouse ornament? You’ll earn extra brownie points for this one because you will have customized it with a photo! Available at select Hallmark stores.
Disney themed books abound at bookstores and online, so it’s super easy to find something for Disney lovers in this genre. Try the Kingdom Keepers series, a Disney coloring book, or informative books about the Disney way like Disney U or Be Our Guest: Perfecting the Art of Customer Service.
You can usually spot a Disney fan a mile away by their clothing. T-shirts from The Home T and Happily Ever Tees are some of my favorites. The Home T has some of the softest shirts around, and they donate a portion of profits to MS research. Meanwhile, this is me sporting my Best Day Ever tee from Happily Ever Tees at the Wine and Dine Half Marathon in 2015:
Zazzle has over 13,000 Disney phone cases-can you believe it? They offer what I call decorative cases and protective ones like OtterBox, which means it’s both Disney themed and I won’t break it! It’s a fun way to show personality and protect a phone!
The Disney Store has these fun, festive light up necklaces that are a popular find at the Disney Parks. Bring the magic home by donning these for holiday parties and festivities. Or perhaps the Disney fan may prefer a Mickey ear hat or scarf.
Trust me when I say this is the perfect park bag. I can fit the bare necessities like phone, camera, charger, lip gloss and my mouse ears in this bag perfectly and still feel comfortable wearing it over my shoulder. I know with the revolution of Magic Bands, we may not need to take a purse in the parks at all. But I’m still old school and like to have my stuff, and this lovely bag works great!
