2. Get a private train car.
3. It’s okay to argue over pets.
4. It’s totally okay to ignore your family for a guy.
5. Don’t bring up any legal matters, like contracts.
6. Don’t try to sell anybody on anything.
7. Bring your own cup.
8. Realize there’s probably a long distance between you and parental approval.

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.”
