Looking for holiday gifts that won’t break the bank? This list has you covered, with 30 different discounted Christmas presents costing under $30 (and most of those under $25–and some even under $10!) from Amazon’s Early Black Friday sale, including items with coupons and Lightning Deals. There are great Disney books, toys, household goods, and accessories, and more on this buying guide.
One of the things we’ve tried to do with this list is find new items that we haven’t featured on past deal roundups. As you may know, much of the same merchandise is discounted with each sale. Beyond that, we usually make these lists with our own preferences in mind–which means a lot of coffee table books and board games. We’ve limited both categories on this list, and have dug a little deeper to find 25 brand new (to us!) deals for this 30 Disney Black Friday Deals Under $30 List!
As always, we receive a small commission from Amazon for your purchases, so buying through these links helps support the site. However, neither the price you pay nor our recommendations (or lack thereof) are impacted by that. With all of that out of the way, let’s dig into the deals!
This one is new-to-us (it just came out in 2023!) and has good capacity for one device plus quick-charging capabilities. The biggest highlight, as is probably apparent by the photo above is that it’s equipped with a built-in Lightning connector, making it easy to charge your Apple devices without having to carry an extra cable. That is huge for me, as I hate carrying cords. I just bought this!
Foldable Handheld Fan– This is the fan that I’d get. Not as cute, but smaller–and space matters in your Disney backpack! Also on sale for Black Friday, and has amazing reviews.
Loungefly Disney Wildcats Backpack – When I first saw this, I wondered why an Arizona backpack was coming up when I searched the Black Friday page for “Disney Loungefly.”
I guess I’m a few years too old to be a High School Musical fan. I do like Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, though. She was great in Princess Switch and Spring Breakers. Two movies that have a ton in common–if you liked the former, you’ll love the latter! (I’m kidding.) Either way, great price at 47% off!
Loungefly Star Wars X-Wing Helmet Mini-Backpack – This Amazon-exclusive Star Wars Loungefly bag is definitely more in keeping with the unique silhouettes for which the backpack company is known. Would be perfect for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and is a great deal at $25 (~44% off).
Thomas Kinkade 2024 Disney Calendar – You’ve seen Kinkade’s work if you’ve ever been in an Art of Disney store. It’s the dreamy, improbably-lit paintings that you want to step inside. With their mix of artistry and impressionism, Kinkade’s Disney designs are mesmerizing, and this calendar is a great way to look at them all year long…without spending $1,000+ on a painting!
Mickey & Friends Advent Calendar Box – Family Christmas Traditions – This Disney Mickey & Friends Advent calendar celebrates family holiday traditions and features a large hardcover picture book with an all-new original story. Notations throughout the book will prompt the reader to join in the fun with their family as Mickey and the gang swap holiday stories and share their favorite Christmas traditions with one another.
If you ask me, there are much better options in our Best Disney Advent Calendars for Counting Down to Christmas 2023. However, most of those are no longer on sale and/or cost more than $30. (Several are right around $35!) This one is technically a deal, but it’s probably my second-least favorite of the bunch. (Sorry, creepy Olaf and friends.)
Personally, I’m really looking forward to Lorcana and have already managed to acquire a few packs of cards for free at D23 events over the last year, but I’m waiting until all the initial excitement dies down and it becomes more easily accessible. But try telling that to kids who want to play this Christmas!
Princess Dress-Up Trunk– Note that this is a different princess dress-up trunk from the one we normally recommend (currently not on sale and above $30, but hopefully will be again this holiday season–it’s discounted all the time). Honestly, this one doesn’t look quite as nice and, perhaps I’m old fashioned, but there’s no way I’d buy that Jasmine costume for my own daughter.
Princess Activity Tote– Also pretty far from my area of expertise, but this playset looks fun and is another cheap gift option. 50% off.
Mickey Mouse Waffle Maker – We’ve recommended this for the last few years, and have actually bought it multiple times for ourselves (got lost in a move) and given it as gifts to family and friends. (It helps that it’s really cheap!) Pocket the money you’d otherwise spend on those Chef Mickey’s or Crystal Palace breakfast reservations.
Light-Up Lightsaber Chopsticks – Complete gamechanger for sushi and all your other eating needs. Can’t imagine ever using normal non-lightup silverware again, like some non-Jedi peasant.
Note that there are two sizes here–the cheaper one is smaller and for espresso, whereas the larger size is for coffee or whatever type of larger drink. Only the espresso size indicates that it’s on sale, but the coffee cup is actually discounted by more according to the MSRP on the manufacturer’s website.
Baby Yoda Coffee Mug– This hand-painted mug featuring Grogu from the Mandalorian is absolutely adorable.
Chip Mug– With an indented chip on the rim, metallic gold trims, and the sweet face of Chip from Beauty and the Beast – this coffee mug is sure to delight any fan of the beloved Disney movie.
Grumpy Shirt– Are you even a “Disney Dad” if you don’t have at least seven dwarf shirts–but all featuring Grumpy or Dopey?
Disney Christmas PJs — Nothing says “Christmas” like sitting by the fire and wearing pajamas, or at Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. We love the idea of this, but it’s a big gamble that Florida weather will cooperate–even in November and December! Regardless, a very good deal.
Doorables Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Collection – You could get three of these sets and still be below the $30 threshold. A great way to start a creepy, children of the corn army…but make it Disney! (Not hating on anyone who likes these. We all have our own unique taste!)
18 inch Disney Doll Clothes – WHY ARE THERE SO MANY CREEPY CHRISTMASTIME DOLL DEALS?! Thankfully, in this case it’s actually BYOCD–bring your own creepy doll, as the deal is on princess outfits for Belle, Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, Little Mermaid and Aurora. I guess this is American Girl doll height?
Disney Castle & Princess Sheet Set– The design here is tasteful and fun; it looks classy and whimsical. I actually really like this. Not for me, of course. I’ll be scoring one of the many dinosaur designs by the same brand, which are also on sale.
LEGO Star Wars Tenoo Jedi Temple– This Star Wars toy features a ‘levitating’ rock function, a kitchen with a buildable blue milk carton, bunk beds with a hinged ladder, characters and a speeder bike. Cool stuff.
LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Trouble on Tatooine Set – Kids can recreate scenes from Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 2 and play out their own speeder-bike-riding, missile-shooting battle stories with this Trouble on Tatooine building toy. Includes the Mandalorian and Tusken Raider LEGO minifigures, each with weapons for role-play battles, plus a LEGO figure of Baby Yoda (Grogu).
Space Mountain Game: All Systems Go – A recent release by Ravensburger, this board game features players racing rockets to see who can complete their missions and visit all 5 Starports first. Avoid cosmic events and keep an eye on your fuel levels to leave opponents in your space dust!
Gonex Compression Packing Cubes– They key here is that these are compression packing cubes, which normally cost more and will save you even more space when packing. If you need the suitcase space, we recommend this set over the one below.
Anker PowerPort Cube Strip with 3 Outlets and 3 USB Ports – Disney has refurbished many of its rooms, adding USB ports in the process, so this isn’t really necessary for those. It is for many off-site and older hotel rooms, though. Plus, this has fast-charging to get devices recharged quicker and USB-C.
You can read our full review if you want, but the bottom line is that this is the best book about Walt Disney World. As with board games, I tried to exclude books from this list, but I just couldn’t help myself here. The $4.80 coupon brings this down to under $24, which is far and away the cheapest price I’ve seen for this book. Its retail price is $60, and it was selling for over $100 when it came out due to shortages. We just picked up another copy, which will either be a gift this holiday season…or a “backup” for when this inevitably goes out of print and costs a fortune.
