T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Feeling The Disney Birthday Love

IMG_20160815_200535

I celebrated my birthday this week with friends, family, and of course FOOD – my mother in law made me dinner, and a homemade cookie cake (confession – I actually had two cookie cakes, and they were both delicious. I regret nothing). I had a great day – and felt so loved! Was especially feeling the DISNEY love with these amazing gifts:

I had been wanting my husband to craft me some kind of coffee mug display for a while now (I have a LOT of mugs – and a lot of them are Disney Mugs– because why not enjoy your morning coffee with a side of Disney?), and he was able to put this together for me – not only is it totally functional, but if you look closely you will see that he drew in tiny Disney characters on the heads of the hooks – how creative is he?

My husband and my BFF collaborated on this year’s gift giving, and she made me this amazing sign to go above the coffee mug display – it combines two of my loves – Disney and caffeine. Genius work on her part

Then I got myself a super cute new Mickey and Minnie Alex and Ani bracelet…yep, I bought it for myself and nope I don’t even care that that’s kind of weird – just look at how pretty!

I am so touched to have family and friends who care about me enough to make me Disney gifts – and all in all, it was a great birthday,

and I can’t wait to see what the year ahead brings!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Gearing Up For The Holidays – Disney Style

The other day I was going through the Toys R’Us holiday toy book – when my son toddled over and flipped the book over and points to a picture of a stuffed Mickey and goes “Daba!” (which is what he calls Mickey). I should be proud, and I am – but I am also scared. He is just barely 1 and already knows what Mickey Mouse is – which is cool, but I wonder what kind of like subliminal messages are in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse….ah well, either way, my kid loves Mickey (yay!), and I suppose that means Disney Christmas gifts this year?

It may only be early November, but I have already started Christmas shopping – and while I still have a lot to do, it’s nice to get some stuff out of the way early. I still do have to shop for my son, so I was thinking some Disney inspiration might be in order:

xmasgifts1

What kid wouldn’t want to receive a GIANT stuffed Mickey Mouse? Perfect for cuddling and playtime

Xmasgifts2

I love these “road” carpets – and this Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed one is a great choice for your tiny Disney fan

Xmasgifts3

I saw this at Target and thought it was the cutest thing – what a great way to “play doctor” – just like Doc McStuffins!

Xmasgifts4

This Lightning McQueen toy box is great for everyone – kids will love that it looks like their fave Cars star, and parents will love the extra place to stash the TONS of toys that seem to explode from everywhere

My son isn’t the only Disney lover in the house – and I personally like to deck my halls with a Disney flair:

Personalized stockings hung along the mantle

Xmasgifts6

Or maybe a tree skirt with the family name on it?

xmasgifts7

Can’t go wrong with these – whether you’re giving them as a gift or using them to make delicious sugar cookies – it’s a win win

And of course Disney sells TONS of ornaments – I personally love to get one each time we go to Disney

Hopefully these gift and décor ideas have helped kick start your holiday spirit into gear!

TGIF!

Disney Themed First Birthday Gift Ideas

    20150808_092250

My little guy is already 10 months old – which is really hard to believe because it seems literally like just yesterday that I was having my Disney baby shower and preparing for his arrival! He babbles and feeds himself (sort of) and crawls and gets into anything and everything – and it’s been an amazing journey so far!

I’ve already begun preparations for his first birthday party – which I am trying to keep low key (not an easy feat in the days of pinterest and over the top kids parties!). It will be at a local park lodge, and we will have pizza and cupcakes, and I opted for an easy zoo animals theme with fun blow up zoo animal beach balls and baggies of animal crackers as “favors”. Even though I know he will receive a TON of gifts, I still want my husband and I to get him something, and I was trying to think what he might like, and I was of course thinking about how I could start that love for Disney at an early age too….

So here’s what I came up with for possible Disney gift ideas for a 1 year old:

1bday 1

This 4 in 1 Mickey Mouse Ride On can be used as a walker/rocker, and transitions with them as they grow older. It features their favorite Disney characters, and even lights up and Mickey talks and plays music too!

1bday 2

John has this Disney Wooden Train and he loves it – and by loves it I mean “loves eating the pieces” – but I am sure once he gets older he will enjoy actually putting it together

1bday 3

Stuffed animals are great for kids of any age – and I love this Disney My First Duffy Bear – he’s nice and soft and the perfect bedtime cuddle buddy in his adorable pajamas

1bday 4

Playsets like this Disney little people Mickey and Minnie’s house Little People set are great for their imagination and role playing skills – which admittedly at 1 they don’t have much of, but for now they can play with the houses and little people and enjoy the colors and textures

A note about suggested ages: I always read the suggested age range on a toy before I buy it, but I don’t always follow it – if a toy says ages 2 and up but it doesn’t have any small or sharp pieces, chances are pretty good I will let my little guy play with it. However – that’s totally up to you as a parent or gift giver, so feel free to do whatever you feel is best!

I can’t wait to celebrate my boy turning 1 – and I can’t wait to watch him start to really “play” with toys. They may physically grow a LOT their first year, but this upcoming year is going to be a big one for developmental milestones, and I can’t wait to witness each and every one!

What about YOU – what do you like to give as gifts to your favorite tiny Disney fans?
