Any ideas for Disney Gifts!!??!!

Hello!

I am surprising my parents and my younger sister with a June 2013 trip to WDW for ten days for their Chirstmas Gifts (and birthday and father/mother day and arbor day and memorial day haha). We have been a bunch of times but my parents have never stayed onsite and I want them to see the difference.

So I came up with this cute idea to give them each a basket of "goodies" with clues to signify the trip. I have a bunch of ideas but I was wondering if anyone else had any good ideas that I could borrow too

So far I have:

* Mickey/Minnie Luggage Tag
* JetBlue Gift Certificate (everyone books their own flight)
* Spa Gift Certificate
* Disney Gift Card
* Travel Toothbrush and toothpaste
* Travel Size Sunblock
* Loofah (mini)
* Small pack of Kleenex
* Gum
* Evian Face Spray ( I never travel without it!)
* Personalized Disney Tee Shirts

Any ideas would be welcomed and appreciated!!!!

what a great idea - I'm sure they will love the goodie baskets

what about a set of phrases for each country round world showcase? or anagrams of some of the rides as puzzles to work out? or some obscure facts/trivia about the resort you will be staying at?

We just surprised my daughter for her Disney trip 9/20-9/27. We surprised her at the airport. She thought we were taking Daddy there to go on a business trip. Then Daddy gave her a good bye present. At the bottom of the box was a note that said,"Daddy is not going to Italy. You are going to Walt Disney World."

Cute! How about some Disney Princess lip balm too? Maybe a pin for trading?

right now at walgreens at target there are a lot of Disney items like accessories like little flashlights and light up wands, misters, water bottles, keychains. when we go to illuminations or wishes we put on a glow necklace or something fun like that. just a thought.
