Amazing Christmas Gifts for the Biggest Disney Fans
Black Friday is over! Cyber Monday is over! Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? NO??? EVERYBODY PANIC!!!
Okay, I’m kidding. Thanks to an early Thanksgiving this year, you have plenty of time to finish your gift buying. You just need to buy the right things. MickeyBlog is here to help! We’ve got six great suggestions that will warm the hearts of all the Disney fans on your shopping list.
Snow White Lipstick
A little more than 80 years ago, an evil queen insecurely asked a magic mirror for some affirmation. She wanted to be told that she was the fairest of them all. The magic mirror told her the truth, and the truth hurts. Snow White was then and always has remained the fairest of them all.
Would someone you love want to emulate Snow White? If so, Bésame Cosmetics has the perfect product for you. They sell a limited edition lipstick that features the reddest Satin finish that you will ever see. It’s a splendid recreation of Snow White’s lustrous red lips in the 1937 movie, and you can buy it at Sephora for only $22.
Because MickeyBlog loves you, we’ll pass along a secret. The same product is on sale at Box Lunch for as little as $15.33, depending on whether they’re running a 30 percent promo or not. Box Lunch will run several of these promos during the holiday season. Stay patient and you’ll get a great bargain!
A Disney Dress
Disney has gotten so much smarter about merchandising in recent years. They always had the ability to satisfy kids with the perfect Christmas gifts. Lately, they’ve figured out how to market to adults, too.
One of my favorite examples is the Dress Shop Collection at ShopDisney. The site offers a dozen different dresses based on iconic Disney attractions and characters. The Disney Villains dress is a black crinoline skirt with diamond-shaped images at the bottom of the hoop. These images are action poses of your favorite Disney bad guys and gals. It even comes with villainous Mouse Ears!
Do you prefer characters? Snow White, Mary Poppins, and Minnie Mouse all have special dresses reflecting their chosen styles. The Disney theme parks are represented, too. In fact, one dress is actually called Disney Parks, while another is a Fantasyland dress.
My personal favorite, the one I recommend to all fans of Disney’s Haunted Mansion, is the Tightrope Girl Dress. Disney fans know here as one of the stars of the devious illustrations in the Stretching Room. At first, she seems like a fashionable woman contentedly standing in place. After a moment, you realize that she’s on a tightrope about to get eaten by a crocodile. Somehow, the dress encapsulates the entire scene.
I saw a handful of women wearing this outfit during the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. They all received compliments for their choice of costumes. More importantly, every woman in this dress seemed soooo happy and brimming with confidence/self-esteem. Any dress that can do that is one that you should buy someone for Christmas.
Mickey Mouse Spinner
Luggage isn’t a fun gift, right? Sure, it has tremendous utility, and you’ll certainly regret any trip when you have inferior luggage. The handle won’t extend right, stuff will fall out due to a faulty zipper, and you’ll find a few broken items when you unpack. In other words, luggage is good; it just isn’t a sexy gift. What would happen if the luggage seemed fun, though?
Box Lunch (yes, I love them) has a 20-inch Mickey Mouse Spinner on sale. For roughly $100, you can give someone sturdy luggage with a handle that works. Plus, it will possess an adorable series of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse illustrations on the front and back! It’s a steal for that price and will remind your loved one of how great you are at gift-giving every time they travel!
PS: If you’re still on the fence about this one, I’ll add that the luggage tag is a Hidden Mickey. Come on!
Ultimate Disney Christmas Tree
I want to get the exact name correct on this. It’s officially titled The Ultimate Disney 50-Character Tabletop Christmas Tree, but it’s colloquially nicknamed The Wonderful World of Disney Christmas Tree. You’ll find it at the Bradford Exchange, which is a polite way of saying that it’s A) a collector’s item and B) not cheap. The current retail price is $199.99, although it’s available on installments. You’ll find the occasional coupon code for the site, too.
Why is this tree a good gift? Let me speak from personal experience. My in-laws know that my wife and I love Disney. They also know that we take the holidays seriously. Our Christmas tree usually goes up on November 1st and stays up until late January.
Knowing our love of Disney and Christmas, my in-laws bought us this gift. They did it the right way, too. They shipped it in November, allowing us the entire holiday season to enjoy the intricate touches of this interactive electric tree. And that’s why I’m mentioning it as a gift today. If you have someone on your shopping list who loves Disney and Christmas, buy this Ultimate Disney Christmas Tree and give it to them immediately! They’ll think of you every day for the next month and again every time they break out the holiday decorations!
90th Anniversary Vans
Do you know a loved one who has feet and wears shoes? There is an extremely large target audience for this next gift. Disney has worked with Vans, the legendary shoe manufacturer, on previous models of limited edition shoes. In 2018, however, they’ve created a one-of-a-kind series that will become a collector’s edition almost immediately.
Vans has launched an entire merchandise line celebrating the 90th anniversary of Mickey Mouse’s debut! The shoes are clearly the stars of this line, but you’ll find hats, shirts, and socks, too. All of the products cost less than $100, with the top-of-the-line shoes at $90 and the cheaper model at $65.
I don’t claim to be much of a shoe expert, but a dear friend of mine is a self-professed “kicks fanatic,” whatever that means. Knowing how much my wife loves Vans and Disney shoes, he texted me the moment that the companies unveiled this product line. He has also given me his assurance that if we never wear them, they’ll appreciate in value over the years. Surely, you have a Disney fan on your shopping list who will love to wear these or at least put them on display on a shelf/wall, right?
A Disney Cruise
Doesn’t your family deserve a vacation? Don’t you end up doing too much work on a regular vacation? No matter where your family goes, you’re the one who must decide where to stay and what to do and where to eat. It’s exhausting, right? There’s a reason why so many people complain that they need a vacation after getting back from vacation. When you do it wrong, you’re still exhausted once you return home.
Fortunately, you can give a gift to yourself that will make you seem like a hero to the rest of the family, too! Book a Disney cruise for you and your loved ones! Your family will share a stateroom, but most of the action won’t take place in the room. Disney entertainment is everywhere on cruises. Plus, the company chooses the itinerary and the ports of call for the specific cruise you choose. They’ll take care of all the meals, too.
You won’t have to do anything on this vacation! Disney will satisfy your entire family’s needs, giving you a richly deserved break from all the pressures of life. Best of all, everyone will call you the hero of the vacation for booking the cruise! Everything about this idea is full of win! And you can even let MickeyTravels do most of the hard work for you in planning your trip. These travel agents provide a free service AND tremendous expertise on the best ways to book Disney cruises.
