19 Disney Gifts For The Grown-Up Disney Fans On Your List
Disney is so much more than a universe filled with talking mice, pumpkin carriages, and houses being carried away with balloons. Disney embodies all we want for our children — wide-eyed wonder, courage, bravery, and love. And those characteristics? You never grow too old for them. Loving Disney isn't childish and if you have family and friends like you, you've probably got a few Disney fans on your Christmas List this year. But what Disney gifts can you give a fan that doesn't include a plush princess doll or a DVD?
Um, a ton of things! Look, shopping for a Disney fan, even if they're a specific movie lover, doesn't mean hanging out in the kids' section. You can help your loved ones showcase their Disney dedication with collectibles, books, jewelry, even make-up. There are no limits when it comes to Disney, right? It's all about being who you are, without shame, and dreaming up anything. Keep that in mind as you tackle your Christmas list over the next few days. This Disney gift guide is sure to have something for everyone on your list, no matter what kind of Disney fan they are. Shopping at the house of mouse has never been so easy.
1. For The Disney Historian
Covering everything from animated and live-action movies to the Disney parks, The Disney Book ($30) is a celebration of all things Disney and a must for the Disney historians on your list.
2. For 'The Little Mermaid' Wannabe
If you're a '90s kid, you probably daydreamed about becoming Ariel. Make your dreams come a tiny bit true with Dare to Dream Ariel Beauty book ($10) so you can perfect that mermaid look.
3. For The One That Sides With The Villains
There's always one in every crowd, isn't there? Your evil-laughing friend will love this Ursula shell necklace ($7) so they can steal all the voices of those beautiful mermaids.
4. For The '101 Dalmatians' Fan
Short of gifting this fan in your life an actual dalmatian puppy (to name Pongo of course), these 101 Dalmatians Vans ($60) are the next best thing. They also have 190 five-star reviews, so you know they're worth the money.
5. For The Chef
One of the best things about going to the Disney parks is the food. Your chef friend can recreate the magic at home with this classic Mickey waffle maker ($32). Perfect for any day, but make sure they whip it out on Christmas morning. Use some whipped cream and strawberry toppings to give Mickey a Santa hat!
6. For 'The Lion King' Lover
Such an incredible movie, right? The Lion King has some amazing messages and one of my favorite is on this Mufasa silhouette T-shirt ($23).
7. For The Disney Parks Traveler
If you have someone on your list who is obsessed with the Disney parks, give them Poster Art of the Disney Parks ($40). Full of the posters for all of the parks in each decade, it's a beautiful collection to have.
8. For The 'Cinderella' Believer
How darling is this Cinderella slipper necklace ($45)? Glass slippers are fairly hard to walk in (I mean, homegirl did step right out of one on the stairs), so slip one around your loved one's neck instead.
9. For The One Who Love Wine and Disney
Want some subtle Disney love that's still functional? Here you go! Everyone will think this Mickey Mouse icon corkscrew and bottle stopper set ($22) is adorable, and it's a perfect way to showcase adult love for Mickey.
10. For One That Loves 'The Princess And The Frog'
If you haven't seen The Princess and the Frog, you're missing out on some of the most gorgeous animation Disney has ever come out with. For anyone who loves the movie, they'll agree, and also go nuts over The Art of The Princess and the Frog ($40), a book featuring the beautiful film art.
11. For The Traveler
No matter where your loved one is traveling, we've all been that person going, "I think that one's mine... no. No, THAT one is mine. Wait. This isn't mine," at the baggage claim. Get rid of that dialogue with this Mickey Mouse pop art luggage ($199).
12. For The 'Beauty And The Beast' Fan
Beauty and the Beast was the first movie I ever saw in theaters with my mom, grandmother, and sister, so it has a very special place in my heart. This Beauty and the Beast stained glass watch ($19) is just lovely and perfect for other Beauty and the Beast fans.
13. For The One Who Doesn't Have A Mirror, Mirror On The Wall
Everyone can use a compact mirror! Pick the Snow White Compact Mirror ($32) for the fans of the very first Disney princess.
14. For The Artist
Adult coloring books are all the rage, but this Disney Princess coloring book ($12) combines the therapy part of coloring with our favorite princesses. No more coloring weird lines or giant patterns -- have your artistic Disney fan color in symbols from their favorite movies and even a few princesses themselves.
15. For The Disney Animator Obsessed
They Drew as They Pleased ($22) is the first in what's supposed to be a set of books on Disney's incredible animators, so be sure to gift it to those that love everything about animation. Full of amazing facts, unpublished art, and biographies on the original "concept artists", it's a must for any die hard Disney fan.
16. For The One That's Jealous Of Andy's Toy Box
Everyone will say "The clawwwwwwwww" as your loved one pulls this Toy Story claw t-shirt ($21) out of the gift box with a smile. Simple, cute, and hilarious — who doesn't love those little alien guys?
17. For The Newest Member Of The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
C'mon. You can't have a Disney gift guide without a set of Mickey Mouse ears ($14). Get their name put on the back like a true Mickey Mouse Clubhouse member!
18. For The One That Loves The Colors Of The Wind
Pocahontas was always my favorite Disney princess and I am obsessed with the movie's music. Enter the Pocahontas The Legacy Collection CD ($20). It's a two-disc set that includes the original soundtrack and several demos, along with great liner notes.
19. For The One That Sobbed Through 'Up'
Raise your hand if just seeing this gift made you choke up a bit. OK. Glad to know it wasn't just me. Remind your loved ones that adventure is out there with their very own replica of Ellie's grape soda bottlecap pin ($10). Now they're in the adventure club.
