Christmas time is here! If you’re lucky enough to go to Disney World or Disneyland (or any of the other parks around the globe) between now and December 25th, you’re probably in the market for some great holiday ears.
Shopping at small shops on Etsy and personal platforms offers you a more tailored and organic shopping experience that allows you to celebrate the spirit of Christmas and giving by supporting the dreams of individual creators. I love showing off the hard work of creative artists or “makers”, especially for Disney themed items. The market for home-made goods is booming because of the quality and price of items, and all of the shops below come at customer recommendation (basically, these ears are tried, tested, and top notch). Take a look at the great holiday finds that Minnie herself would love!
Perfect Poof: Mouse Life Ears
Mouse ears come in several shapes and sizes. Mouse Life Ears specializes in the perfect stuffed ears that are “poofy” without being too bulky. The holiday ears are topped with a sparkly bow that will make you look polished and ready for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party! This shop is ALWAYS open on Etsy, so you can place your order right now, people! The price point for these festive ears is only $20 and definitely worth it.
Festive Floral: Flowers Gleam and Glow

If you live under a rock then you have a good excuse for not being exposed to the wonderfulness of the wire floral ears. Flower Gleam and Glow has taken this trend to a whole new level for the Holiday Season by combining crisp florals, happy poinsettias, and lively pine branches. These ears basically are a Christmas song in themselves. The price range never goes above $30, and her shop has a great variety of ears so you can pick up an extra pair while you’re there!
Trendy Plaid: Simplicity by Emma
Anyone else OBSESSED with Buffalo Plaid? If you are, then put down your Starbucks cup right now and go order these perfectly plaid ears from Emma’s shop. These ears are stuffed and poofy, which helps to channel all of the cozy aspects of the holidays: chestnuts, hot chocolate, fuzzy slippers etc. You can pair this trendy print with a plain bow or even a sparkly one for extra pizzazz.
All About the Details: Lo and Grace
When I started this post, I had multiple people contact me and ask for this particular shop to be highlighted. It is definitely a shop supported by its customers! The ears have the cutest details on the bows without looking too busy. The ears are flat, which means they are also easy to pack and also carry in the parks. The shop also has a pair of Coco inspired ears (eep!) if you want to show your love for this season’s newest movie release. While you are there, make sure to check out their new shirt too to match your new ears!
Pom-Poms for Days: Zipadeedesignco
I’m dead because the poms on these ears have slain me. But really, these ears hit all the bases when it comes to the Holiday check list: great prints, sparkles, baubles, and the poms are the perfect finishing touch of fun! They are full package accessory for your holiday vacation. I also admire the non-bow pairs. While I love a good bow, the option is minimal and could be a unique addition to the ear lover’s collection.
Character Ears: Stroke of Midnight Co
The variety available from this shop is amazing. I fell in love with the Star Wars pair. Then the Gingerbread pair. Then the Mickey Santa pair. They are all magical and amazing in their own way (and the shop has even more beautiful character options listed too). Besides the overwhelmingly cute fabric designs, the headband also stood out to me with these ears. If you have never worn ears, the headband MATTERS. A lot. It can make or break the accessory in an instant. I noticed hair grips on these pairs and it seems so practical! Her reviews also sprinkle compliments on the maker like pixie dust!
The Best Gift Ears: All Ears Boutique Company
Merry and BRIGHT describe these ears perfectly. I love the array of cheery colors in this shop and the attention to detail in creating the perfect happy Disney aesthetic. The Christmas ears come in a wonderful and festive variety for any taste or outfit goal. The shop also has a great selection of ears that you can easily gift to family and friends. The small world ears give me White Christmas vibes, but are amazing for any time of the year. Want a discount? Use forrestdear at checkout to save a little money!
And there you have it! I fully admire the hard work, time, and effort that each of these makers put into creating special accessories for the parks. Supporting the creativity of people is 100 percent in line with the Holiday spirit!
