Reality Check. We are now T-minus 10 days until Christmas! Have you done all of your holiday shopping and checked everyone off your list? If you still have a few lingering presents to purchase, you’re not alone. While I’m mostly done, there are a few last-minute additions I need to make to ensure there’s something under the tree for everyone I love.
I snagged photos of the finds I was most excited to discover during my most recent visit to Disney Springs and am sharing those below, along with some images from a few other favorite shops. I’ve also included locations, so you know exactly where to look for each of these gifts:
If you only have time to shop at one store, World of Disney should be it! Widely considered the ultimate shopping destination for Disney fans of all ages, there’s a good chance you’ll find what you’re looking for here. Right now, all things EARidescent are so on trend – look for Loungefly backpacks, Spirit Jerseys and ear headbands that feature this signature shimmer. For the king of your castle, I’m loving the button-down from The Castle Collection, developed for The Walt Disney World Resort 50th Anniversary. There’s also a full Celebration Collection that includes a wide assortment of apparel, such as the blue jacket, pictured here. For Minnie fans who need a mini pampering session, gift a set that provides 12 days of bath & body indulgences. And for families who are looking for ways to spend more time together, these Disney-inspired versions of classic board games will provide hours of family fun! There are thousands of additional items at World of Disney, so there’s truly something for everyone! (Pro Tip: To save time, try out the Mobile Merchandise Check-Out; this recent Disney Parks Blog story will give you the details.)
There’s cozy, then there’s “Island Soft” cozy —these throws are now available at Tommy Bahama with special pricing through December 31, 2021. I love the neutral shades, and bet your giftee will too, because they’ll work with almost any color palette!
Know someone who could use an extra dose of Disney nostalgia? These picks from The Disney Vault Collection will surely put a smile on their face. The lunchbox brings me back to elementary school … I may actually get it as a gift for myself and use it on the days I’m organized enough to pack a lunch for myself!
With so many patterns from Dooney & Bourke, it’s hard to pick a favorite, but these three options are at the top of my wish list!
Sure, they may be beloved for their soaps and bath bombs, but my go-to Basin must-have is their shower bombs. Place one in the corner of your shower and enjoy a fresh, soothing aromatherapy experience – your gift recipient will feel like they’re at the spa! Shampoo and Conditioner bars are a great option, too, especially for your environmentally conscious loved ones who loathe traditional bulky, liquid bottles; there’s one for every hair type and each bar lasts 50-75 washes.
Between the cozy socks, classic leggings and cute-as-can-be Loungefly backpack, my stop into Tren-D has me ready to book my next ski trip!
For the wine aficionados you adore, wrap up the world’s only wine list with 140 wines by the glass, bottle and ounce with a Wine Bar George Gift card. Through Dec. 31, for every $100 spent, you’ll receive a $10 bonus card to gift or keep for yourself. (No judgment here if you go with option B!)
A personalized ornament is a keepsake they’ll treasure for years to come, especially if it features their favorite character or attraction. I love to add the year so I can look back and see how my collection has grown over time. Confession: when I was shopping at this over-the-top holiday store, I daydreamed that someone booked a Disney Cruise Line Vacation for me and wrapped up this adorable Captain Mickey and Minnie ornament to let me know. Wishful thinking, but wouldn’t that be fun???
This store has so many unexpected treasures and trinkets. From bracelets with positive affirmations to rose quartz heart stones that radiate positive energy and wine bags with hilariously relatable sayings, you can expect to uncover plenty of unique gifting options.
My philosophy? You can never have too many ear headbands in your collection! If someone on your gift list agrees that ear headbands are the ultimate accessory, you can’t go wrong with gifting them another pair. Whether you splurge on the black and gold sparklers from the Luxe Logo Collection or go with something for “everyday” wear, you can’t make a wrong choice. (Keep in mind, this location also has some incredible jewelry, too!)
