Ok so it’s time for you to get a gift for that Disney lover in your life – whether it be a Birthday or anniversary (or a super early Christmas gift?), us Disney fanatics LOVE getting unique Disney items as presents – it not only shows that you pay attention to our interests, but also that you care enough to give the very best – meaning Disney gifts, of course! Not sure what to get us? Well, here are some gift ideas for the Disney loves in your life:
Photo Gifts: These are a great idea for any occasion – you can order Disney frames from the Disney Store website, and pick a print of your favorite Disney family memory to put in it. Or you can make a photo album or Disney scrapbook (Disney scrapbooking supplies are available at craft stores like Jo-Ann Fabrics, Michael’s, and AC Moore), or if you aren’t that crafty you can use a website like shutterfly.com to create a photo book, phone case, mug, tote bag, or any of dozens of other gifts with your fave Disney trip photos on it – your Disney fan will love them all!
The Disney Gift Basket: So many possibilities here – all you have to do is pick a theme and go with it – their favorite movie or character is the perfect starting point – and then build on that. Some possible items you can include: DVD’s, snacks, games, puzzles, toys, stuffed animals, jewelry – plus you can use ribbons/tissue paper in character coordinating colors – really anything goes here! Obviously some themes will be harder to find items for than others, so let websites like etsy, amazon, and ebay help you put your gift basket together! I personally love the idea of a “Disney Kitchen Gift Basket” – with items like Disney cookbooks, spatulas, oven mitts, cookie cutters and more available to purchase, this would be a great idea for your favorite Disney foodie!
Disney Art: What better way to show your Disney fanatic you care than to make them some unique Disney Art that they can proudly display for all who enter their home to see? My husband made me the awesome Disney crayon art pictured at the top of this article by combining drawings of Mickey and Minnie with the newly popular Melted Crayon Art Technique. I can’t even tell you how much I loved opening it – and it will hang proudly in our soon-to-be-born son’s nursery. He also created the above frame for me as an anniversary gift last year – combining some great Disney trip photos with a quote from Cinderella was a great way to show me how much he cares! Obviously I realize that not everyone is crafty or has the time to create these kinds of gifts, and lucky for you – you don’t have to – I love browsing different Disney art and prints on etsy, and many of these are affordable and able to be customized to fit your needs
Don’t forget a Disney Greeting Card to go with that gift – widely available at many retail chains, and Hallmark has a ton of great ones too. If you’re feeling artsy you can draw your own (I’m a bit spoiled, my husband has drawn me some great Mickey and Minnie cards over the years!)
Obviously, if all else fails and you are stumped or have no time, a Disney Gift Card always makes the perfect gift – we can spend it at the Disney Parks, put it towards our (never ending) Disney vacation bills, or use it at Disney Stores around the country!
Bottom line – us Disney lovers will love ANY Disney themed gift you get us – the thought, time, and effort you put into the gift will be well appreciated, and we will probably love the Disney gifts so much that we will rush off to brag to our other Disney Addict friends about how awesome you are (seriously, that’s what we do.)
