Uplifting Disney Graduation Gifts For Students

Do you need Disney Graduation Gifts for your graduate? Whether they’re graduating high school or college, we just had to pull together a bunch of our favorite things we wished we would have gotten as grads. Stuff we’re now using hard-earned job dollars to buy ourselves! While a Disney gift may not be as exciting as a new car, a trip to Europe, or an undisclosed amount of money you’re coughing up for your loved one… it is a heck of a whole lot cheaper. Help them transition to their new more grown-up selves by grabbing a fun, lighthearted gift that reminds them of childhood and lets them know you’ll always be there, with a Disney movie to guide them.

Disney Journals and Books

If you’re buying for a think-y graduate better get them a few Disney journals and books to help guide them through this next stage of life. And grab one of our favorite advice books, courtesy of Disney stories, or Walt Disney’s biography to inspire some greatness.  Or maybe they just need some Life Hacks to get them to the next level?  Check out all the books they could ever want for their own Disney Bookshelf at shopDisney.com.  


Disney Movie Collection

One of the first things I did when I moved out of my parent’s house was join the Disney Movie Club . With siblings still at home, no one was going to be o.k. with me taking all of our Disney movies to my new apartment. Nevertheless, I knew there was going to be some drama, breakup, or sick day that would require a Disney movie. Surely you know your grad’s favorite and can gift them a Disney movie to get their own collection started. Or grab them Disney Plus subscription so they have everything they need anywhere, anytime! 

Disney Decor 

Whether it’s a new home or a dorm room, nothing compares to having something that reminds your grad of family in their new space. Something Disney to add to their new lives makes everything more fun, so whether you cooked together, lounged together, traveled together, or just sat with cocoa and talked… surely there is something you can grab that will be a happy reminder of your times together.

Disney Clothes, PJ’s and Bling

If your grad isn’t quite settled or still wondering what’s next, grab them something they can bring with them. A nice piece of jewelry, a new pair of pj’s, or something fun to add to their wardrobe. We have loads of fun Disney shirts in our shop at polkadotpixieshop.com to choose from, but check out these other options too. And check out all the jewelry options on shopDisney. As Disney Graduation Gifts, something meaningful from their favorite movie, even if it’s just a t-shirt, can brighten their day, and make all those future decisions, seem less daunting.

And we’ve saved the best for last. The best part of graduating anything and moving on is that while many things change and new adventures await, there is always some stability- some things that don’t change. No matter where your grad is off to next, make this accomplishment marked by something special. A token, something they can collect and keep and look forward to. Even something as small as a stuffed animal that can be repeated with each new milestone will help them feel positive and hopeful about the future and all the new milestones yet to come. We love Disney mugs as a great gift too.
