Sadly, this is going to be my last holiday gift guide. Time is ticking people! I hope I’ve helped with your shopping just a bit (or maybe enhanced your own wish list, who knows.) Now, we’ve had Broadway, Muppets, and travel. Today I’m mixing it up with a few random items I love as gifts!
Let’s do it!
1. Shutterfly photo books: I’ve ordered these myself for a few occasions, and I love how they turn out. It’s the best way to commemorate a trip, or share pictures with others. You can design the pages any way you want with fonts and designs, as well as add in and arrange your own pictures. It’s a little time consuming but the end result is so worth it.
2. ImageSnap: So you’ve taken all these Instagram pictures and you have NO idea what to do with them? ImageSnap has a few cute ideas for you. Magnets and tiles of multiple sizes to hang all over the place. I’m thinking of doing something like this with prints from the year.
3. The Art of Pixar: 100 Collectible Postcards: I found these by accident when I was searching through Amazon one day, and I’ve been eyeing them ever since. I think they’d be perfect to send out as notes to people (I mail out a lot of stuff) and also framed on your wall forever. It’s a subtle way to share your Pixar spirit!
4. Julie Andrews’ HOME: My Early Years: After reading Between Disney’s review of Dick Van Dyke’s memoir, I immediately remembered how much I loved Julie’s account of her childhood and early career moves. There’s not too much (or maybe any?) Disney related info in these pages but for any fans of Mary Poppins, theater, and, of course, Julie, it really is a well done book.
5. Thomas Kinkade Wrapped Canvas @ art.com: Okay, for this one might be for the special person in your life, because I don’t think you drop 120 dollars on anyone. I love these classic Disney scenes recreated by the late Thomas Kinkade. How pretty would they look in your living room?
6. Muppet Graphic Novels: My life is philosophy is always the more Muppets, the better. I read my first graphic novel this year, and I really appreciate experiencing the Muppets this way. The pictures are colorful and the dialogue is funny. (Peter Pan is one of my favorites.)
7. Mannheim Steamroller Meets the Mouse: This is one of my early buys from the theme parks when I was attempting to gobble up as much Disney music as possible. What a winner. Still listen to it all these years later. Really nice instrumentals.
8. LeSportsac “It’s a Small World” Cosmetic Case: Well, I’ve been drooling over these for most of the year. There are three Small World designs up on LeSportsac at the moment and while I’m not necessarily the biggest fan of their purses I love their travel totes and cosmetic cases. Such personality and Mary Blair flair! (ha!)
Did I forget anything? Be sure to share in the comments!
Thanks again for following along with these. I really enjoyed doing them! (Oh gee, how I love giving gifts!)
