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!

Polka Dot Minnie Mouse Apron

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!

Mickey Mouse Mixing Bowl Set

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!

Gourmet Mickey Mouse Measuring Cup Set

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.

The ceramic set is special enough to display, I’m thinking. (And they’ll surely stand in when you’re short a teacup or two. DUAL FEATURE!!)

Disney Kitchen Items You Never Knew You Needed

I was trolling Amazon today and found some rockin’ Disney kitchen products. Now, these are probably wants, not needs, but I thought it was important to share with you nonetheless. So whether you’re collectors, or just curious, here are some of the countless Disney kitchen products swimming around out there… .




Disney Wall-E Cake Pan and Candle

Wall-E Cake Pan and Candle: OK, this is just too much fun. I had NO idea that Wall-E had made his way into children’s birthday parties…or anybody’s birthday parties…but apparently he’s there and going strong. I just thought the cake was pretty cute, and I could really go for some frosting right now. (Psst: you can also get the icing food coloring set, should you so desire.)




Disney Ice Cream Maker


Disney Ice Cream Maker: You know you want it. It has Mickey feet. And it makes ice cream whenever you want. Any flavor. Will wonders never cease? Besides, Dave of Davelandblog‘s review is five stars on this one.







Spode Disney Cheese Wedge Plate and CoverSpode Disney Christmas Tree 7-inch Cheese Wedge and Cover: I had no idea my cheese wedges needed their own plate and cover. And to think I was about to go into the winter without a season-appropriate version!







Disney Alice and cheshire Cat salt and pepper setAlice and Cheshire Cat Salt and Pepper Set: I would throw a dinner party just to use these. And I’d do all kinds of subtle themeing, like make “Drink Me” tags for the wine glasses and “Eat Me” tags for the dessert dishes. Big, plastic pocket watches everywhere. Centerpieces made from decks of cards and half-red/half-white roses. Stop me anytime.





And there’s much more where that came from! Happy shopping!
