Disney Gift-Giving Guide

It’s now officially the time of year to delve into a blizzard of gift-giving.  Luckily, there are a few tips to be gleaned just be remembering the Disney films we’ve known and loved for years:

 

Disney Gift-Giving Guide

1. Items that change color make memorable gifts.

2. It’s best if gifts last past midnight.

3. Statues don’t fare well as gifts, but if you’re going to give one make it of the recipient’s loved one-not the actual recipient.

4. Books are great gifts.  Lots of books make an amazing one.

5. If giving magical tokens, consider including a case to keep them in so they don’t fly away at a crucial moment.

6. Music boxes are lovely presents, so long as you won’t be sharing space with anyone ratty enough to break them.

7. Even lucky bugs do not make good gifts.

8. Hats are fun gifts-even if they’re too large, so long as they make them feel like a hero.

9. It’s okay to wrap live animals in boxes without holes, so long as they are babies.

10. Always do exactly what fairies tell you to do about a present.

 

And remember, no matter how successful your gifting adventures turn out this year, everyone will still feel that that, to paraphrase, “The greatest gift of all is having you for a friend/sweetheart/family member.”

 

20 points for every reference, 45 for any you add.  And a happy season of gifting to you!

    1. Sleeping Beauty
    2. Cinderella
    3. Little Mermaid
    4. Beauty and the Beast
    5. Dumbo
    6. this one, I must say, has me a little stumped. Is it The Great Mouse Detective, or am I relying too much on the rat clue?
    7. Mulan
    8. The Sword in the Stone (though this made me think of An American Tail, too)
    9. Lady and the Tramp
    10. Pinocchio

    11. Responsibility, and magic, are great gifts–and cleaning is a privilege, so don’t shirk it!
    12. A bonk on the head from a monkey is awesome.
    13. and now a giveaway–An apple from a handsome young man–good. An apple from an old lady–best to throw away.

    6. It is the Great Mouse Detective. It opens with the toymaker father giving Olivia a musicbox.
    8. Actually, no one really gives hats in Sword and the Stone. Arthur never wears one. Want to try again or shall I tell?
    10. I would also have accepted Peter Pan.
    11. I want to say this one’s “Sword and the Stone.”
    12. Aladdin! This one modernizes to getting people donkey kong videogames, which works out.
    13. Snow White just sullies the good name of lots of goods, doesn’t it?

    Yay!
