“These are a few of my favorite things…”
2020 has been crazy. I think we can all agree on that. With everything happening in the world, it feels more important than ever to shop small. One thing I love about the Disney community is how many talented entrepreneurs share their creativity with all of us. So I thought I’d round up a few of our favorite shops to give you some great ideas for Christmas presents this year.
I love to wear Minnie Ears when I’m visiting the parks and so do my girls. So when we found Christen’s adorable shop we were in love. Magical Moments Ears are so comfortable, you can wear them all day. Also I love that my girls and I can both wear them and they stay in place. She has a wide variety of styles from classic Minnie ears to specific character inspired ones like Ahsoka Tano and Buzz Lightyear. She even does custom orders if you have something specific in mind that you just have to have.
I love stickers! Have since I was a little kid so naturally, I fell in love them moment I saw StickEARs awesome stickers. Justin and Ellie have the most adorable Disney designs from park icons to characters you love. I personally love their castle stickers, both Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty castles are so well done and maybe it’s just that I’m still a princess at heart. All their stickers are water proof, weather proof and dishwasher safe so you can put them on just about anything and not worry about it. They also have started to have a few other fun products like t-shirts and Christmas ornaments so check back often because there is always new products.
The first time I saw Lindsay’s Mickey and Minnie earrings I knew I had to have some. They were adorable and so unique. Lindsay makes quality polymer clay earrings in a wide variety of styles. She is constantly releasing new styles and her creativity really shows. She also makes light up floral ears that you just have to see. They would be perfect to wear to the parks because they would look beautiful all day and as it gets dark, you can flip on the lights and have a whole new look.
I hope you find some great things for those on your holiday gift list. And remember behind every small shop, there is a real person and a real family you are supporting. So especially this year, shop small!
