A Little Disney for the Holidays

Blogorail Logo

Welcome to those of you joining me from FOCUSED ON THE MAGIC and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail.  This month, we’re sharing about Disney Holiday Gifts.

There’s no way around it.  We’re big-time Disney fans at my house, so there is bound to be some Disney gifts under our Christmas tree each year. 

In the past, these gifts have included things like:

  • winter 2011-12 002Movies
  • T-shirts
  • Pajamas
  • Stuffed Disney Characters
  • Ornaments
  • Disney Gift Cards
  • And last year I treated myself to a Disney tree skirt

This year, there will be some different Disney gifts under our tree. . .

My kids all collect Disney pins, and I recently decided to start my own pin collection (since I got such a nice set upon graduating from the College of Disney Knowledge).  Disney World Personal Shopper had a bunch of Disney trading pins for sale on their Facebook page, so I ordered a bunch (some for each member of our family – including Brian, who hasn’t started collecting yet – I guess he and I can share!)  I’ll put some back for future gift-giving, but will definitely include some pins in stockings!

They also had an adorable Christmas Mickey on sale (sold out in the parks), so I had to splurge and order him for ME!


Gracie did the majority of her Christmas shopping on our September trip to Walt Disney World.  So my mom will be receiving some awesome soap from Basin (love that place!)  I also happen to know that she got Ian what will be our family’s very first Vinylmation.  An e-mail from the Disney Store last week inspired me to do a little extra shopping of my own, and I ordered a Vinylmation for each one of us (so there will be 6 new Vinylmations joining our family this Christmas! I wonder what they will be?!


Ashley and I had fun looking at all the Disney Cookbooks on our last trip.  I just so happen to know that she picked one up for me, so I’m pretty excited to receive that!

On Ashley’s birthday weekend away, we found the most beautiful calendar of Thomas Kincaid Disney prints.  When she looked at me and said “Can you buy me this for Christmas?” I couldn’t resist!  I’m guessing some of those prints will end up framed and hanging in her room!

And, last but not least, my Gracie has  become quite the reader lately – devouring books.  She’s been loving several of the series’ published by Disney Hyperion, so I ordered her a new series that I’m hoping she will like.  (Gee, I hope she doesn’t ever read my blog! Just in case, I won’t name the series!)

What about you?  Do you shop Disney for Christmas?

I'm sure I will, Deb! Ashley already said we need to pick a few things to try that week, while she's off from work! My first thing to try will be the soup from Le Cellier!

I think you guys are going to have an awesome Disney Christmas! I love collecting vinylmations. It's always fun to discover what's inside the box. :)
