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.
5For The Super Emotional One
For your friend who's head is way less organized than Riley's, gift them a feelings journal so that they can try and sort out their emotions on paper.
8For The Scardey-Cat
Your friend who can't watch horror movies and checks her closets before bed will love having this Fear plush to snuggle up with when she can't sleep.
10For The Homebody
This Sadness pillow is a cozy addition to any rainy day on the couch.
11For The One Who's Always Rolling Her Eyes
Everyone has a friend who's main form of communication is a scoff. Get her Hot Topic's Disgust tee so she can let everyone know her M.O. before they even ask.
12For The One With The Great Imagination
Let your friend indulge her imagination with this Bing Bong mug , which pays homage to the most creative, fun and selfless imaginary friend of all time.
17For The One Who's Always Misplacing His Phone
This Anger talking flashlight gives a new meaning to the term hot head, literally. As your friend gets angry when he can't find his keys — again — this gift will let him at least look under the bed with some light.
18For The Moody One
If your friend loved Inside Out because she's all about her feelings, give her a mood ring she can always know whether Joy, Anger, Sadness, Disgust or Fear is taking command of her Control Center.
