Love is in the air, which can only mean one thing… Valentine’s Day is almost here! And I’ve put together some of my favorite gift ideas that are sure to share the love, whether you’re shopping for your sweetheart, your friends, your family, or even for yourself!
I am absolutely wild about these accessories! Almost as much as Donald Duck and Daisy Duck are “wild about” each other, as is boldly stated in the romantic pattern featuring the two lovebirds on this Donald Duck and Daisy Duck Dooney & Bourke Satchel Bag, Tote Bag, and Small Zip Sac, available on shopDisney and at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
If Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse are more your vibe, might I suggest this Minnie Mouse ear headband decorated in pretty pink fabric rosettes and a mesh bow covered in flocked hearts. Pair it with the Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Falling Stainless Steel Eco-Drive Watch by Citizen for the loveliest of looks this Valentine’s Day. You’ll find the items on shopDisney and at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
Nothing makes for a cute couple like matching Spirit Jerseys, especially when they’re inspired by one of the galaxy’s most iconic couples, Princess Leia and Han Solo! These Spirit Jerseys display a heart-shaped Millennium Falcon on the front. On the back of one jersey you’ll find Princess Leia’s confession, “I love you…,” while the other features Han Solo’s famous retort, “… I know.” Get them now on shopDisney and at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
It’s hard to imagine a more adorable couple than Carl Frederickson and his lifelong love Ellie from Disney and Pixar’s “Up, ” who come together as plushies in a romantic heart-shaped box. Also dressed in their Valentine’s Day best are Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, as well as the lovable mischief-maker Stitch, who sports a sweet pink rose just for the occasion and features a fun heart-printed satin ear lining. You can find all these plush now on shopDisney, and if you’re traveling abroad at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. The Carl and Ellie plush and Stitch plush are also carried at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.
Make sure to stop by Downtown Disney District’s The Disney Dress Shop or Disney Springs’ Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories for darling new Pandora Jewelry pieces like the Mickey & Minnie Mouse Love Castle Charm and 2023 Mickey Mouse Pennant Dangle Charm. You can also add some pixie dust to your Valentine’s Day—and your bracelet—with the selection of charms from the Disney x Pandora Tinker Bell collection or celebrate an out-of-this-world love with the Wall-E & Eve Glow-in-the-dark Dangle Charm, both available at the Downtown Disney District and Disney Springs Pandora Jewelry locations.
You and your valentine can style yourselves in special edition Ray-Ban X Disney Clubmasters inspired by Mickey Mouse and—for the first time—Minnie Mouse! Every pair comes in an exclusive red case and box, complete with a certificate of authenticity. Find these styles at Island Supply in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park, as well as at the Sunglass Icon locations in both Downtown Disney District and Disney Springs.
Make the occasion extra sweet with an imaginative pop-up card from the Lovepop locations at Downtown Disney District and Disney Springs. Some especially cute picks include the Mickey & Minnie: The Perfect Pair Pop-Up Card as well as these Star Wars-themed cards featuring R2-D2 and Darth Vader. You can even present your valentine with the Star Wars Darth Vader Galactic Love Bouquet, complete with a notecard that says “Together we can rule the galaxy!” And tell them those three words every significant other wants to hear, “We are Groot,” with a sweet Lovepop card featuring the adorable member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. And for an everlasting, one-of-a-kind gift, your sweetheart will love Lovepop’s handcrafted paper roses. Each petal is made by hand from premium paper, making each bud as unique as a real flower –only these will last a lifetime!
I’m a simple woman. You give me cupcakes and you’ve made my day. And you’re sure to make your Valentine’s Day special with these delicious seasonal flavors from Sprinkles at Downtown Disney District and Disney Springs, including Raspberry Chocolate Chip and Heartthrob Red Velvet. Or you can surprise them with a full box of cupcakes! The I Love You dozen box includes four Red Velvet, four Vanilla, and four Raspberry Chocolate Chip cupcakes. And the XOX dozen box includes three Dark Chocolate, three Red Velvet, three Vanilla, and three Raspberry Chocolate Chip cupcakes. These seasonal selections are all available through February 19!

Couples visiting Hong Kong Disneyland Resort can color-coordinate their outfits in the exclusive Dreamers of All Ages collection. With a range of lavender-themed apparel and accessories, this new line is wonderful for lovers of all genders and ages.

The princess or prince in your life will love these gifts! This Loungefly Beauty and the Beast Stroll Handbag is the perfect accessory for a day out with the one you love.

Why not make Valentine’s Day a little spooky with these gifts inspired by Jack Skellington and Sally from Disney Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” Your other half can wear their heart on their sleeves with these interlinking Jack & Sally Simply Meant to Be Cufflinks. Or show them you love them to the moon and back with this Sally Rose sterling silver necklace depicting Jack and Sally together in front of a full moon. You can even snuggle up together and read Shea Ernshaw’s “Long Live the Pumpkin Queen,” a frightfully fun tale that picks up where Disney Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” film left off and poses the question, “Jack and Sally are ‘truly meant to be’… or are they?”
I’ve got even more fun gifts for all the Pixar fans! Spread the love in these adorable tees by Fifth Sun featuring Wall•E and Eve, or if it’s Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story” you adore, there’s one featuring the Little Green Aliens proclaiming, “I Only Have Eyes For You.” Of course, the loving sentiment I relate most to is without a doubt “My Dog is My Valentine,” as displayed on this pink tee alongside the lovable Dug from “Up.”
Swing into your Valentine’s heart with the Pandora Moments Marvel Spider-Man Mask Clasp Bangle, engraved with the iconic quote “With great power comes great responsibility,” as well as additional collectible charms from the Marvel Spider-Man Collection.
