Disney Store UK #GiftMagic Event Haul [Part 1]

Hi lovelies! A few weeks ago I was very lucky to be invited to a special event in London that the Disney Store UK hosted so today I wanted to share a little of what we got up to and the things that we were kindly gifted at the event!

The event was to launch the Disney Store UK's Christmas #GiftMagic campaign! We began the morning by meeting at Claridge's hotel in London where we were greeted by the most beautiful looking Christmas table, complete with either a Christmas 2017 Mickey or Minnie plush (I was given my main gal Minnie!) and a Christmas present for each of us which turned out to be the ever famous Chip mug! We were treated to a Full English breakfast whilst the Disney Store team told us a bit about their Christmas campaign.
This year the Disney Store have put together a gift guide to help you choose the perfect gift for any type of fan - from little Jedi to ultimate Disney fans! They've also got lots of offers on to help you out over the festive period (or the perfect excuse to treat yourself to be honest...). One of these is the Gift of the Week where every Monday one of their most magical gifts will be reduced for a week! For example this week there is a selection of Frozen gifts on offer and next week there will be some Moana ones reduced. Make sure to keep an eye on their Instagram and Facebook pages to see which offers are coming next!
After we had breakfast we were gifted a huge gift box, part of which was a voucher for the Disney Store which we headed to the Oxford Street Disney Store with after (which was closed off especially for us!) for a private shopping experience! We were even surprised with Mickey and Minnie showing up in their Christmas outfits! It was honestly the most magical day and I still can't quite believe I was lucky enough to be invited along!
I'm going to be sharing the goodies I picked up from the Disney Store with my voucher soon (all in the Animators' Collection suitcase above!) but for now I wanted to share the lovely things that we were all kindly gifted whilst at the event!
As mentioned above, along with the Mickey/Minnie plushies and Chip mugs we had waiting for us on the table when we arrived, we were also given a box packed full of Christmas-y Disney goodies! There were a few things in there I'd actually had my eye on and some exciting things I'd never seen before!
First up is this lovely festive mug from their Christmas collection. As soon the temperatures drop in the winter, there's nothing I love more than a good hot chocolate so I'll be definitely reaching for this a lot in December!
Next we received something very exciting which wasn't even available for sale yet at the time of the event! The Disney Store are collaborating with Stance for a very stylish range of Disney and Star Wars socks and underwear and I'm a little bit obsessed with these Mickey socks I received. The colours are gorgeous and they're so well made - I think they might be the poshest socks I own! The range has now launched online and I'm very tempted to pick up the Minnie ones to match!
Speaking of socks... I also received one of the Disney Store's lovely Mickey-shaped baubles with Minnie socks inside! I'm going to keep this displayed on our Christmas tree throughout December and then I'll let myself open it up in January - like a little post-Christmas present to myself!
Something I wasn't expecting to find but was ridiculously excited to receive was this special Christmas Disney Store key! Every day the Disney Store asks a child (or sometimes a very lucky adult!) to "open" the shop each morning using a giant "key and lock" and then they're given a smaller version of the key to take home after - just another way the Disney Store spreads a little magic! I've seen these all over Instagram and I'd been wanting one myself for ages but as I sadly don't live nearby a physical Disney Store I didn't think I'd be able to get one so this was a very lovely surprise to find!
We also given this ever-so-lovely Mickey Mouse notebook and pen set. The cover on the notebook has a fabric feel to it and its filled with lots of Mickey imagery on the inside - it would make a perfect gift for a hard-to-buy-for Disney fan as who doesn't love a good notebook? I've been using mine for blog and Instagram planning!
Our boxes were also full with a set of lovely glittery baubles! They've got lots of different Disney characters on including Figaro looking ever so adorable and festive in his scarf and reindeer antlers! This year is the first year my boyfriend and I are able to have our own Christmas tree now that we've moved into our first flat together so these will be perfect for beefing out our tree!
At last but not least we were also each given an Olaf's Frozen Adventure bag to help us carry our goodies across London in! I was actually planning on buying one of these that day so I was very happy bunny!

Watch this space for the second part of this haul with the things I bought from the Oxford Street Disney Store coming soon!
