The perfect gift for any family is one that lasts long beyond Christmas morning.The gift of a future vacation does just that. The anticipation extends until you leave for your trip, the magic happens the entire time you're on your vacation together, and then the memories you create last a lifetime. The only challenge is deciding where to go. Once you've figured that out, your next step is to decide how to present your vacation reveal on Christmas morning.
With The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opening on April 7 next year, Universal Studios Hollywood is the perfect choice! If you have Harry Potter fans at your house, you can check out our free printable Marauder's Map or Hogwarts Acceptance Letter vacation reveals. Harry Potter isn't the only exciting attraction at Universal Studios. Everyone loves the fun and funny minions from the Despicable Me. Universal Studios Hollywood features special meet and greets with Gru, his daughters, and the minions, the ride Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, Super Silly Fun Land, and more. It's hours of fun!
If you're looking for a fun way to let your little minions know that they're going to Universal Studios Hollywood, use our darling gift tags. There are four different character options, and you can mix and match them with any of the backs, or vacation announcements.
Start by downloading our free minion vacation announcement gift tags:
Once you've cut them out, use double stick tape or a glue stick to stick your tags together. Punch a hole in the tag, and use a string or ribbon to attach your tags to any Despicable Me themed toys, treats or movies. My personal favorite, PEZ dispensers.
PEZ dispensers make great stocking stuffers alone because they're cute, cheap and small. But, add a vacation announcement gift tag, and your stocking stuffers turn into the most treasured Christmas morning gift! You can find Despicable Me PEZ dispensers at most grocery stores, or you can just grab a three pack online here:
Agnes, Stuart and Dave Pez dispensers
If you go this route, I recommend placing the PEZ dispensers in the toe of your stockings and saving them for very last. It's sure to be the highlight of your day.
Once you've let your family know about your upcoming vacation, you can do all sorts of fun things to get them ready for some minion mayhem. Try making our minion cookies, minion lollipops, and our minion munch at home. And of course, watch Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, and the Minions Movie.
