Belle of the Ball


The new Disney live action take on Beauty and the Beast is coming out this week, and I thought it’d be fun to create a little Belle-themed gift guide for your enjoyment. Growing up, Belle was my favourite Disney Princess because of her brown hair, her love of books, and that dress. Here are some great gift ideas for any real-life Belles.


My Bibliophile – $14.79 @
Belle of course, is known for her love of books. This handy little journal lets you track your reads, give them ratings, and jot down others you’d like to get your hands on. It’s sort of like an analogue Goodreads.


Signature Sass Mini Dress – $59.99 USD @ ModCloth
You know how in the late 90s they remade all these Shakespeare plays into teen movies? I feel like that’s going to happen with fairy tales next. And this little goldenrod mini-dress is totally what teenage Belle would wear when dancing with the beast at a party.


Dolce Rosa Excelsa Eau de Parfum – $111 @ Hudson’s Bay
There are a million rose-scented perfumes out there, but I think Belle would pick this one for its pretty flower-shaped cap and the fact it has not one, but two roses as part of its heady floral bouquet.


Candelabra – $24.99 @ JYSK
The Beast’s castle is famously bewitched with living objects, including Lumiere, the casanova of the bunch. Add a little light the next time you’re saying ‘Be Our Guest’ by adding this dramatic centrepiece to the table.


Coal and Canary Baguettes & Sunsets Candle – $30
True Belle might write off ‘the baker with his bread like always’ as a bit provincial, but surely she wouldn’t say no to one of Coal & Canary’s cafe-themed candles. This one smells like freshly baked baguettes and butter.


Fine Bone China Heart Mug – $45.60 @
Belle enjoys more than one cup of tea (or coffee) while staying at the Beast’s castle, alongside Chip and Mrs. Potts (where is Mr. Potts?) Make like Belle with this sweet mug that turns your favourite warm beverage into a heart shape.


Beauty & The Beast iPhone 6 Case – $19.95
While I mostly tried to stay away from literal gifts for Beauty & The Beast fans, I couldn’t resist including one of the items released for the film. This (slightly oddly modern) phone case looks swell and lets you check your lip gloss on the fly.


Ellen Tracy Wool Blend Cape with Faux Fur – $139.90 USD @ Nordstrom
Belle famously rocks a faux fur cape a few times in the film when dealing with the elements. For a modern take, pick up this cozy cape. For a more literal interpretation, try here.

Alright folks! Those are a few fun gift ideas for Beauty and the Beast fans! Now earn an extra entry into this month’s Meriance giveaway by telling me in the comments below – are you looking forward to the film? Which of these gift ideas would send you swooning?
