Seven Holiday Gift Suggestions for Disney Fans
Okay, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just around the corner. And with supply chain shortages around the world, you need to get started with your shopping.
So, here’s a holiday gift guide to help you preemptively get ahead of all your holiday shopping!
The Hawaiian Roller Coaster Backpack
Longtime MickeyBlog readers know that I’m kind of obsessed with Box Lunch as a store. It’s the upscale sister site to Hot Topic.
Box Lunch exists to cater to adults who are young at heart more than teen mallrats. It’s also a Disney fan’s dream site, with a plethora of exclusive items.

This year, I’m obsessed with this backpack, which celebrates one of Lilo & Stitch’s best scenes. Yes, it’s this one:
The bright and airy backpack is 9 x 10 and 6.5 inches deep. So, it’s not massive and better for packing light.
Still, I expect to see plenty of these at the parks.
A Maleficent Ring
Over the last two years, I’ve fallen in love with Enchanted Fine Jewelry. This website sells exclusive merchandise based on Disney characters.
You can find anything from inexpensive baubles to engagement rings and marriage bands here.
So, the budget stretches and contracts to fit your needs. Currently, one of the cheapest items on the site is this unique Maleficent ring.
In terms of design quality, it’s impossible to imagine anything better. I mean, you can just look at that ring and immediately know which character it represents.
As I type this, the website definitely suffers from supply issues. However, it still sells several items for less than $100.
By the way, everyone is different and shops in their own ways. I realize that. If you’re ever ready to propose to a Disney fan, though. THIS is the site.
My wife and I were never emphatic about wearing our wedding rings. Once I got her an Elsa marriage band from here, she never took it off, though.
The Disney Bundle
If you give someone a shirt, they’ll think about you each time they wear it. Meanwhile, a child will forget about most of their toys within the month.

Gift-giving comes with its fair share of risks and realities.
However, some gifts will last all year. To wit, the Disney Bundle provides someone with access to Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu+ for the entire year.

Disney+ alone means that your loved one can watch WandaVision and the entire MCU whenever they want.
On top of that, they’ve got access to almost every Disney movie ever made, plus The Simpsons.
Folks, I’m not being hyperbolic when I say that I’d pay $13.99 a month just for The Simpsons.
Disney charges that for a bundle of all three…and I’m relatively confident that another discount will arise over the next few weeks.
For a reasonable price, you can give someone streaming euphoria for a calendar year!
Disney is adding two streaming services into a bundle with Hulu + Live TV, meaning customers will now have access to Disney+ and ESPN+, whether they like it or not: https://t.co/4cQJ54mcwg pic.twitter.com/JoBJFwk9iz

Nightmare Before Christmas Slow Cooker
Disney licensing is seemingly ubiquitous in society. You can add your favorite character to pretty much anything you want.
To wit, The Night Before Christmas lends itself to multi-holiday use. So you can appreciate its brilliance for Halloween and Christmas alike.
We’re talking about a three-month celebration that could even go all year if you prefer.
For this reason, you should feel free to buy this slow cooker. It will seem right at home in your kitchen. Even better, it will remind you of Jack and Sally!
At this point, most of my kitchen appliances have Disney on them somewhere…and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Disney fans know about Smellitzers, the devices that the parks use to pump fragrances into high-traffic areas.
You’ll find them on attractions like Soarin’, where scents will remind you of beaches and oceans.
However, Disney prefers the Smellitzers in lobbies so that your mind will connect the smells with places.
Similarly, on Main Street, U.S.A., you’ll notice the aroma of baked goods thanks to the Smellitzers.
Well, you can order these devices for your home. I mentioned a version of the ScentAir a few years ago, but it’s come back better than ever.
Here’s a video about it:
This version has a better design that makes cartridge switches easier. The Apple-style white look always adds a superior aesthetic to your home.
I’m looking at mine, which is about 10 feet away from me as I type this. It means that I’m always smelling the magic while I write about Disney.
The ScentAir will probably have a $149 price tag at some point between now and Christmas. It’s a bargain for any Disney lover.
D23 Gold Membership
I wanted to recommend something exclusive to ShopDisney right now. They’re selling a limited-edition Walt Disney World 50th anniversary gift box.
The catch is that the item costs…$500. So, here it is if money’s no object to you. However, I realize that it’s too pricey for most people.
So, I have an even better and cheaper suggestion.
A D23 Gold Membership costs $99.99, and Disney will likely offer an additional discount over the next month.
For that money, the gift recipient gets a quarterly magazine that doubles as a collector’s item. Also, they can go to various D23 events like the recent Destination D23.
Most importantly, membership includes this package:
Folks, I’ve had mine for several months now, yet I still smile every time I look at it. The pins and the lunchbox represent a Disney collector’s dream.
Any Disney fan would love to get this as a gift!
A Disneyland Vacation
Who wouldn’t want to visit the Happiest Place on Earth? I mean, we’re talking about the theme park that started it all.
Remarkably, Disney continues to improve the place each year. Recent additions include Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Avengers Campus.
Star Wars and Marvel fans can join other Disney lovers at the parks and have a wonderful time! That sounds great but possibly expensive…
Hey, did you know that Disneyland has multiple vacation discounts available?
More importantly, have you considered how simple it is to book a Disney vacation rather than do a lot of shopping for the family?
Look, the holidays come with enough stress. You can save yourself plenty of aggravation by contacting a MickeyTravels agent to set up a Disney trip.
These Authorized Disney Vacation Planners provide their services free of charge to you.
They also know and monitor all the best deals for a Disneyland trip. So, they’ll ensure that you get the best possible price.
You won’t have to do anything but wrap up a message that tells your family that they’re going to Disneyland!
Just like that, BOOM! You’ve won Christmas!
