The summer blockbuster Inside Out is a lovely kids movie that, I believe, is just as much for the adults. Full of witty musings on the human mind and clever puns (I laughed out loud when I saw The Train Of Thought), this animated flick has a beautiful message about experiencing all of your emotions — even the not-so-pleasant ones. So it's totally legit and even cool to be a grown ass woman with some Inside Out gifts on your holiday wish list.
Even if you haven’t seen the movie (in which case, get yourself the DVD ASAP), chances are you have a friend who can’t stop talking about the Amy Poehler-lead film. Whether your friend is more of an Anger or totally identifies with Disgust, there's a gift for them. Maybe they'd love a T-shirt featuring Fear, or maybe they'd rather Joy and Sadness housewares to decorate with. Or perhaps they want to show off their intense Inside Out infatuation by celebrating some of the secondary characters they loved as much as the main five. Whatever type of fan they are, there is a gift for them, and we've got some of the best ones listed below. Just try to avoid the temptation to buy them all.
1For The Casual Fan
Redbubble's main character graphic tee ($25) is subtle, but still gets the point across.
2For The Artsy One
The Art Of Disney Pixar Art Inside Out ($40) is a beautiful behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the film. A perfect coffee table book, and, bonus! Amy Poehler wrote the forward.
3For The Happy-Go-Lucky Gal
Does your friend always wake up on the right side of the bed? Any morning person will feel joyful drinking their morning joe from Zazzle's Joy mug ($18). Or, gift this to your morning-hating friend as a little inspiration for a better start to the day.

18For The Moody One
If your friend loved Inside Out because she's all about her feelings, give her a mood ring ($36) she can always know whether Joy, Anger, Sadness, Disgust or Fear is taking command of her Control Center.
