It’s beginning to look a lot like… summer still? Okay, yes, it’s still 90+ degrees outside for a lot of us, but it’s never too early to start getting into the holiday spirit, right?! We’re halfway there, y’all! In the spirit of the holidays, I’m bringing you a first look at some exciting new holiday-themed merchandise that you won’t have to wait until December to enjoy. Check it out!
It’s never too early to start thinking about how you want to decorate your tree. Get excited, because the first of many all-new Sketchbook Ornaments are releasing soon to shopDisney. These ornaments depict beloved scenes and iconic characters from your favorite Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars
films. Check out the full ornament guide here, which will show all the new ornaments as they’re released throughout the season. New ones will drop continuously on shopDisney, so be sure to check back regularly for new releases!
Can you really celebrate a holiday the Disney way without a Spirit Jersey and ears? I don’t think so! That’s why I can’t wait to sport this festive new Spirit Jersey featuring everyone’s favorite holiday treats, complemented perfectly by a new holiday knit ear headband by Spirit Jersey. With a matching holiday Mini Backpack by Loungefly, I will be SO ready for the holidays. And can I get a “watt watt” for this light-up necklace? Or how about this cheery charm trio set by Pandora Jewelry to celebrate the Holly Days? These items will start rolling out in the fall at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, and on shopDisney.com, so be sure to check back!
‘Tis the season for a picnic in the park… or maybe in the cemetery, if you’re craving a spooky twist? Either way, you can bring a Nightmare Before Christmas/Jack Pranzo Insulated Lunch Tote or Nightmare Before Christmas Jack and Sally Picnic Basket for your meal on the go.
BoxLunch is also putting their own summertime twist on the popular franchise. Their Nightmare Before Christmas Beach Pint Glass, Nightmare Before Christmas Jack Skellington Pineapple Succulent Planter, and Nightmare Before Christmas Beach 7-Quart Slow Cooker will help you get into the holiday spirit while you’re still getting your tan on!
Speaking of “Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas”… we all know Jack Skellington for his merry misadventures during Halloween and Christmas, but even The Pumpkin King needs a holiday every once in a while. This July, Jack is headed on summer vacay — and you’re invited to join in on the frightfully fun festivities. Be sure to check back here for more information on how you can hang ten with Jack and his misfit crew this summer season at Disney’s Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween Town Beach Club.
