Amazon’s amazing Christmas products will give you a head start on the holidays!

Welp. It is OfficiallyThe Bricker family celebrates the holiday season. Our decorations are out and ready to go up, I’m using my favorite Christmas coffee mug while typing this, and listening to the old Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party Main Street background music loop as I scheme about what new ‘ugly’ sweater I’ll wear to the upcoming event.

Some of you might claim it’s too early, that Halloween literally Just happened, “Turkey Before Tree”Oder, something else. We have the following to say: you do you! In our defense, we started celebrating Halloween on (Notes for checking) August 9 and attended the first Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party a few days later. The concept of “The Magic of Disney”This is a great way to make your life more enjoyable. SeasonsOr even HolidaysIt becomes warped. We were “over” Halloween weeks ago.

At this point, Christmas decorations are already up at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland (and have been for over a week), and we’re counting down the days until the fun and festivities officially begin with the first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Perhaps I’m getting into the spirit of the season a bit too early, but it comes with the territory. (I love Christmas. Two months is the best time to celebrate!

Anyway, as head of the party planning committee, I’ve convened an emergency meeting to ensure we have all of the supplies needed for Christmas 2022 at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Last year, there was a sweatshirt I wanted–but I waited until Cyber Monday to see if it’d be on sale–and it sold out (and is still unavailable). This year, I’m balancing my desire for deals with a sense of urgency for a few key items to start wearing/using.

As with Halloween, there’s actually a Ton of good holiday merchandise from Disney, but it’s not being sold at Walt Disney World or Disneyland. Instead, there’s a Amazon: Huge Christmas Disney Shop, most of which is being sold at significantly lower prices than what you’ll find in the parks. This post will share some our favorite and random thoughts.

Many of you have asked about the origins and styles of the accessories and Christmas sweaters we feature in various posts. The short answer is: All over the place. Amazon used to sell a variety of great classic Disney sweaters, now it’s mostly Star Wars and Marvel. There are also Walt Disney World, Disneyland, and Tokyo Disneyland. If you want to see more of our huge collection of ugly Christmas sweaters and other items, let us know and we’ll do a post. (Fair warning, though, most of them are no longer available–so basically it’d be “showing off.”)

Also, please don’t take my clothing critiques seriously. Ugly Christmas sweaters represent the pinnacle in my style, so I’m not a fashionista. Contrary to popular belief I dress like someone who is in desperate need of help. What not to wear. 

Your Christmas purchases result in a small commission. This helps support the site. This does not affect the price of your purchase nor our recommendations.

You can tell I’m being sincere with these picks based on the total absence of Nightmare Before Christmas merchandise. (In fairness to NBC merchandises, Amazon isn’t as expensive as many of the in-park products. Anyway, let’s get started with some crowd-pleasers…

Christmas Mickey Mouse Santa Red Graphic Tee-Shirt — This is one of my go-tos for wearing underneath Christmas sweaters (since the weather isn’t usually right for those until the sun goes down). It’s cheap and looks far nicer than you’d expect for a shirt that costs less than $15. 

This shirt with Mickey Mouse as Santa Claus is vintage and I love it. This shirt would look great paired with a simple shirt. “Walt Disney World”Or “Disneyland” script below it; all of this year’s park Christmas clothes have Way too much Continue reading. This has nothing whatsoever to do with Star Wars. I don’t know why that’s in the product name!)

Disney Group Design Christmas Wreath T-Shirt – This is the other shirt that I really like.

The shirt is more costly, but the design is still much better than Santa Mickey. The wreath blends in with green, which is my favorite color.

Disney Vintage Goofy Holiday Presents T-Shirt – I’m on the fence about this one.

The character model of Goofy is really cool, but I’m not totally sold on the shirt style and size of the graphic. It is worth a look. 

T-Shirt Disney Mickey Mouse Tangled Christmas lights in Antlers – Another winning vintage style. 

Disney Minnie Mouse Icon Holiday Snowflakes T-Shirt – Not my style, but simple and sweet. Amazon says it’s the best-selling Disney Christmas shirt, so people must like it.  

24 books with 24 pages are included in this countdown to Christmas. Every day, unwrap a different story from December 1st through December 24, 2022. This includes holiday-themed stories, as well as everyday stories featuring beloved Pixar or Disney characters.

Funko Pop! Disney Advent Calendar – I don’t rehash my thoughts on the dead-eyed Funko Pops. (It’s safe to say that we won’t be purchasing this!) Setting aside personal aesthetic preferences, it’s impossible to deny the quality of the Funko figures. It’s with that in mind that we recommend this. 

Last year, Sarah’s mom bought us This Disney Advent Calendar. While we aren’t the target audience, we nevertheless thought it was mediocre quality with too many stickers and paper items. Funko is cheaper and offers a better alternative. 

LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy Advent Calendar – Now we’re speaking my language! The LEGO Advent Calendars are my absolute favorite LEGO calendar. Although not Disney-related, I’m particularly partial to the LEGO City Advent Calendar

Other options include:

Baby Yoda Christmas inflatable lawn decor – Christmas inflatables aren’t nearly as good as their Halloween counterparts, but this one is pretty good. I also like This simple but sweet Santa Mickey Mouse gift is inexpensive.

Sadly, I’ve been “banned”After a disastrous Target clearance shopping trip after Christmas, I was unable to purchase more inflatables. These are my favorites, so please enjoy them! 

Funko Pop! Chip ‘n’Dale Christmas Treasures Game — As a huge fan of Pluto’s Christmas TreeThis was an “instant order”It was a great story.

The fast-paced, easy-to-learn card game features beautiful illustrations inspired by the classic 1950’s Disney Christmas cartoons. It’s inexpensive and makes a great stocking stuffer, but we really recommend opening it Before Christmas.

Stitch Merry Mischief Christmas Card Game – While still most well-known for the dead-eyed dolls, Funko has quietly put together a formidable game lineup. This is the newest entry into the lineup, and it sounds promising (we’ve yet to play it).

Here’s how Funko describes the card game:

  • Stitch is ready to celebrate Christmas but he can’t contain his excitement.
  • Perfect stocking stuffer for Disney, Lilo & Stitch and other Disney fans
  • Fast-paced and easy to learn—play a game in minutes!
  • Play your luck and pick the presents you like.
  • Be aware of the differences between nice and naughty Stitch face. These can affect how often you roll a Die and how likely Stitch will unwrap gifts.
  • Disney Christmas PJs — Nothing says “Christmas”You will love being in your pajamas by the fireplace. Another trend that’s growing in popularity is For the whole family, matching flannel Christmas oneies to wear to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. We love the Idea of this, but it’s a big gamble that Florida weather will cooperate–even in November and December!

    Thomas Kinkade Disney Collection Christmas Puzzles — Okay, so ActuallyNothing says Christmas more than relaxing in your pajamas by the fireplace and solving a puzzle. And there’s something about Thomas Kinkade art that just oozes warmth and coziness. 

    There are many options. Other Kinkade Christmas Puzzles, if you’d prefer a different design. I’m partial to this one, but your tastes may differ. 

    Santa stops at Disneyland (Little Golden Book). – Finally, a book suitable to my reading level! The Disney Parks Little Golden Books have been amazing, with beautiful artwork and charming stories. This book combines Disneyland with Christmas, making it a must-have.

    According to Little Golden Book’s theory, Santa stops by Disneyland every Christmas Eve to spread holiday cheer, before flying around the globe to deliver presents. It’ll feature art of beloved locations throughout Disneyland, and makes the perfect stocking stuffer. (Another note: there’s a new box set of previous Disney Parks Little Golden Books.)

    Disney 5-Minute Christmas Stories — Join in the festivities of the season as Mike and Sully race to light the big Christmas tree, Alice finds the Red Queen’s present, Peter Pan brings Christmas to Never Land, and more!

    Merry Christmas Cookbook — It’s lovely weather for cooking a holiday dish together with your favorite Disney characters. Indoor fun is possible with simple instructions and bright photos.

    The Muppet Christmas Carol – The Illustrated Holiday Classic – If you’ve followed this blog around Christmas-time, you know we are huge fans of Muppet Christmas Carol. I’ve seen it more than any other film (the next closest is Terminator 2For those who keep score at home:

    Disney Christmas Storybook Collection — Join Ralph and Vanellope as they throw a Christmas party just for the Bad Guys; trim the tree with Woody, Buzz and the rest of the Toy Story gang; follow Elsa as she tries to create the best holiday ever for her sister, Elsa; and more.

    Holiday Magic at Disney Parks: Celebrations Around the World — This is an incredible deep dive into the holidays (mostly Christmas and Halloween, but also Easter and other seasonal events) with great photos, detailed information, and rich history. This is a must have for anyone who enjoys seasonal events.
