Disney Gift Guide 2012: Cookie Season is Here!

DFB readers know that around this time of year, we like to share a few fun gift ideas for the Disney food fans in your life. And if that means YOU, well we think picking up a little something for yourself is just fine. ;-)

Last week we shared a few of our favorite ways to celebrate with a Disney Dinner Party! Today, with visions of sugar plums starting to dance in my head, I’m pretty sure it’s time to make COOKIES! What, you too? Great! We can swap recipes!

In the meantime, I can’t think of a better way to get into the spirit of baking and cookie making than by stocking up on all kinds of fun Disney kitchenware that’s made just for the occasion!

Whether you’re holiday shopping for all of those bakers on your list, or stocking up on a few pre-Christmas holiday “surprises” for yourself, check out the cool things I’ve found in the Disney Store online for your bake-apalooza 2012! C’mon — grab a whisk and let’s go!

First, keep your favorite Christmas clothes flour-free with this snazzy Polka Dot Minnie Mouse Apron. At least three people on my Christmas list are getting one this year!

Next, it’s time to think about your kitchen tools! I cannot get enough of the cool vintage vibe of this Mickey Mouse Mixing Bowl Set. Crafted in durable plastic, the bowls look just like something I’d find in Grandma’s cabinet – or 50’s Prime Time Cafe!

Bakers worth their salt know that the key to baking success is precise measuring of ingredients. Do it stylishly with this Gourmet Mickey Mouse Measuring Cup Set.

    Terrific. I’m super in the mood for this.

    On tap for this weekend . . . I hoarded 5 of those 1oz bags of Craisins from the Food & Wine cranberry bog booth a few weeks ago, along with the Craisin Chocolate Chunk Cookie recipe card. Sounds kinda Thanksgivingey, don’t you think?

  2. says

    Sarah — I KNOW!!!

    Victoria — Isn’t it adorable? I love the retro Mickey and Minnie feel.

    John G — That sounds awesome…and totally Thanksgivingey! Send me some? ;-)

  3. Victoria says

    Exactly AJ! I just couldn’t pass it up…even though we’re going to WDW soon. But I didn’t want to have to deal with the hassle of bringing back a big box…it’d take up too much space in my carry-on! I have to fill it with Christmas presents and yummy goodies for myself. ;)

  4. Matt says

    My wife bought the Minnie Apron while we were down there a couple weeks ago.
    And I bought the large Mickey apron to match her.

    We also have the bamboo platters and the Best of Mickey Mouse oven glove. It’s great except my wife won’t let me use it cause it’ll get dirty.

  5. Rachel M says

    Victoria –
    You could always ship things back. On our last trip we did that and I was suprised at how little it actually cost and how fast it arrived.

  6. Essie says

    I love the Minnie apron! Are these for sale in the parks at all, AJ? I’m going in a week and carrying that home would be so light and easy. As for heavier things, thanks for the ‘shipping home’ reminder. Now I have to decide if the apron will be for me or my Mom; hmmm….maybe a Mother/Daughter gift? We both love home baking.

  7. Victoria says

    @Rachel M – I wasn’t sure if that was an option. We’ve gone a few times, but never asked or thought about shipping things home. I need to keep that in mind! ;) Thanks for the info!

  8. says

    I would like to purchase the 5 inch Mickey Mouse Cookie cutter. Where do I purchase this item. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advance. JP
