My partner (left) and me (right) on our latest trip home to Florida – we both hunted down vintage Disney World shirts to wear to Magic Kingdom.

  • I’m a huge Disney fan, with a particular love for all things Mickey Mouse.
  • I scoured the internet for the best gifts you could give a Disney fan – besides theme park tickets.
  • From jewelry collabs to handmade art, any Disney or Mickey Mouse lover would swoon over these picks.
  • For more gift ideas, check out all Insider Reviews gift guides here.

In 2018, celebrations erupted all over the world as Mickey and Minnie Mouse turned 90. Collaborations were popping up left and right, with everyone from luxury watch brands to streetwear sneaker companies dropping Mickey- and Minnie-inspired styles for adults.

Over the past three years, this has been great and very expensive news for classic Disney fans like myself. I grew up near Disney World, so my love for Mickey runs deep – and after putting together this list, my pockets run shallow.

If you’re looking for a gift for a grownup who loves all things classic Disney but wants a more mature look, you’ve definitely come to the right place. I handpicked some of the best Mickey- and Minnie-themed gifts for adults, plus a few old-school Disney options I just couldn’t leave behind.

Here are 27 gifts for Disney fans, chosen by a Disney fan:

Bambi Lip & Eye Set, available at ColourPop, $28

If they love an old classic like Bambi, they’ll appreciate this lip and eye set from ColourPop. The packaging is stunning, but the actual formulas are buttery, glossy, and shimmery. They can make a complete makeup look with the five-pan eyeshadow palette, soft yellow eyeliner, and sheer lip gloss in this set. It’s the perfect gift for them to refresh their makeup collection this summer. For more, you can check out all of ColourPop’s Disney offerings.

A stunning box of fresh roses

Roseshire Magic Hearts; Disney gift for adults; gift of flowers

  • We’ve singled out our 27 favorite gag gifts from Amazon your recipient will actually want to keep.
  • With the right delivery, the memory and the laughs just might last.
  • Looking for more gift ideas? Check out all Insider Reviews gift guides here.

There are thousands of pages of prank gifts on Amazon, but perhaps you’re looking for something other than fart jokes and lewd sayings. After all, gag gifts don’t have to be too gross or absurdly frightening. They’re really meant for prompting laughter and fun memories, whether it be with your family, friends, or colleagues.

Perhaps a “shock potato” can spice up a game night. Or, maybe your friend can’t stop yammering about her affinity for puzzles. You might finally catch her flummoxed by giving her an impossible-to-solve blank white jigsaw. And that’s only the beginning. Amazon has countless ways to go about making practical jokes and general tomfoolery. From screaming goats to tiny violins, we’ve found some of the best gag gifts you could possibly give.
