When you combine Walt Disney World and Christmas, you get an explosion of magic and merriment that warms your heart and “tickles your fancy”. Like the song says, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” , and at Walt Disney World, it is also the “most magical time of the year…” There are Christmas parades, Christmas lights, and even snow! Also, Christmas time at Walt Disney World offers the most unique variety of Disney themed gift ideas.
There is no shortage of Disney Christmas magic when it comes to finding that one-of-a-kind special gift. The best part of Christmas shopping at WDW is that you can have all your special gifts sent home, then all you have to do is wrap them and place them under the tree! I have some popular Disney Christmas ideas for you to consider.
Disney Christmas Gift Ideas For Women
13. Purses: What woman does not have a varied collection of purses in their closet? My daughter has so many purses that she could change her purse every week and still have not used them all. What is so special about these designer Disney Dooney & Bourke Disney Purses, wallets, crossbody bags, etc. is that they are exclusive to the Disney theme parks, which makes them very desirable. Just recently Vera Bradley has joined the Disney family and created a line of special Disney purses, wallets, etc. These are also extremely popular and in great demand. Any woman would be delighted to wake up Christmas morning and find one of these special purses under the tree.
12. Jewelry: Women and jewelry go together like peanut butter and jelly. They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. In my own opinion, the way to a woman’s heart is through jewelry, and there are many shops around Disney World where you can find that special pair of earrings, necklace, ring, watch, etc. with the Disney touch. At Disney jewelry stores you can find character themed jewelry ranging in price from $10 to over $5000. The choices are endless and are sure to please any woman who has a passion for jewelry, especially Disney jewelry.
11. Light Boxes: Many women are collectors of one kind or another, and one gift that would be sure to please is a Disney Olszweski Gallery of Light Box. A Gallery of Light Box is a specially lit shadow box format which includes a frame and glass cover. The on/off switch is hidden in a gold leaf in the bottom right hand corner. The lifelike depiction showcases a classic Disney movie or popular theme park attraction. These little light boxes are amazing and would definitely make an excellent Christmas gift for that favorite female friend or relative.
10. Umbrellas: One of the most popular Disney themed umbrellas is the Mary Poppins Parrot umbrella. Surprise that special someone with a replica of the umbrella Mary Poppins used when she arrived at the home of the Banks’ family. I know I would love to have one of these.
Disney Christmas Gift Ideas For Men
9. Hats: Look around you and a great many of the men walking around are wearing a Disney baseball caps. Even though a baseball seems like a very ordinary gift, when you add a picture of an iconic Disney character, the hat becomes very popular. There are so many different colors and designs, and each theme park has its own collection. I would choose one that can only be found at Walt Disney World. Disney themed beanies for cold weather are also available.
8. Jewelry: Men also can appreciate Disney jewelry. Surprise that special man in your life with a diamond Mickey Mouse icon ring, or a Disney Parks watch, created especially for Walt Disney World and Disneyland resorts. If you are thinking of buying a nice gift for a friend, a fabulous Disney key chain would be “just the ticket”.
7. Disney apparel: Men can be a bit difficult to buy for, but at Walt Disney World, that task is made simpler by turning that ordinary shirt, hoodie, tie, or socks into a Disney exclusive shirt, hoodie, tie or socks. A nice polo shirt, T-shirt, or sweatshirt becomes even more popular with a famous Disney character or theme park design on the front. For your friends or relatives who live where the winters are cold, you can purchase a Disney sweater, jacket or heavy coat. The choices are varied and sure to please that special guy in your life.
Disney Christmas Gift Ideas For Children
