Oprah recently released her 2019 Favorite Things List.
While we can all agree that these gifts would be amazing, they cost a bit more than I can afford to spend on Christmas presents.
So, I’ve decided to make my own Christmas List, with Disney Travelers in mind. Because let’s face it…sometimes even Santa needs a little help.
The Best Gifts Under $25 For Disney Travelers
Something For Everyone
While I applaud Disney for recognizing they could do something about plastic waste in their parks, I absolutely despise paper straws.
Unless you drink really fast, what you’re left with is a wet and soggy piece of paper hanging off the side of your cup in a matter of minutes. It’s terrible.
So, do your friends and family a favor and get them some nice stainless steel, silicone, or bamboo straws before they leave for their vacation. They will thank you.
Who wouldn’t want a little extra magic in their wardrobe in the form of a brand new Disney bag?
Send your loved one to the Disney Parks in style.
Just remember that everyone must go through Disney Security. So, look for a bag with the least amount of pockets to make it through the Security line in record time.
There is no such thing as too many ears. At least, that’s what I tell myself whenever I see a new pair of really cute ears.
Whether it will be their first pair of ears or their 10th, they will appreciate that you thought of them
As cute as the Loungefly backpacks are, unless I find a good sale, they’re a bit out of my budget.
Since this mama is not against purchasing knockoff brands, I find that these backpacks are a great deal for the price.
While you certainly don’t have to get all dressed up for a typical day in the Parks, one thought comes to mind when I’m choosing outfits for my next trip…the photos.
I may not know what to do with my hands or how to pose for a decent picture. And I will most likely look like a hot, sweaty mess. But, one thing is for sure…my clothes look cute.
And thanks to Disney fans out there, there certainly isn’t a shortage of Disney shirts on the market.
Hooked on The Mandalorian? Box Lunch has some cute merch right now. Pair it with a cute pair of Star Wars ears and your loved one will be all set for their trip to Batuu.
For the Kids and the Kids at Heart
Traveling with little ones can be a bit of a challenge.
How do you keep them entertained in cars, planes, and in long lines?
Travel tins are great. Everything is contained within one case. And since they’re magnetic, they stick to everything. This way, if you happen to hit a big bump in the road or a line starts moving, there’s less chance of pieces falling to the ground.
If there is a cuter set of play food on the market, I have not seen it. Mickey waffles, ice cream and pretzels? What’s not to love?
Anyone who is a fan of Mickey and Minnie shaped food would love this set.
Bubble wands and glow sticks are lots of fun for parades and fireworks. The problem is they’re pretty expensive in the Parks.
Since bringing toys into the Parks will almost always save you money, they make great gifts.
Everyone needs a cute pair of Mickey or Minnie ears. The problem is that most ears are too large for children’s heads.
Luckily, shopDisney sells ears that are the perfect size for children.
Meeting your favorite Disney character is a special experience. So, many children like to remember that experience with an autograph.
Many of the same autograph books can actually be found online for a cheaper price.
Autograph books make great gifts because nothing says “Disney vacation” quite like the anticipation of meeting your favorite Disney characters.
