Yes, Peppermint Patty! And you know what today is? That’s right, it is National Peppermint Patty Day! It is time to celebrate 🙂
Sure, I love the chocolate (see below), but I am also a kid of the 80s. As such, I grew up watching the Peanuts holiday specials, reading the comic strip, and overall thinking everything about the characters was fun and creative. And one of those characters who really stood out with a “big personality?” Yes, Peppermint Patty! From the way she told people to call her sir, to the way she interacted with Charlie Brown (Chuck), everything about our gal Peppermint Patty was fun! So in honor of National Peppermint Patty Day, I have some fun choices (both of the character and the food) of gifts for the Peppermint Patty lover in your life.
Yes, adults have stuffed animals, too, so don’t think this plush is just for kids. That said, maybe there is a kid in your life who you’ve introduced to Peanuts. If so, this is a fun great choice and super cuddly. And just so you know, you can get plush toys in all the characters from Peanuts. Mix and match! Maybe Peppermint Patty and Chuck? Lucy and Linus? The options (and combinations) are endless.
So I really couldn’t write this post without including the original candy. My mom used to love Peppermint Patty candies. She would keep a bag in the fridge, and every so often, I would sneak one and eat it. If you’re shopping for your special candy-loving someone, don’t settle for a small little bag. Go for this generous 2 pounder. Note that there is also a sugar-free option available.
I feel like I need this shirt. It perfectly captures the personality of Peppermint Patty and brings back amazing memories of watching holiday specials. Shirt comes in five different colors and three different fits. Grab this one for that special someone in your life with a strong personality like Peppermint Patty.
It’s hard to go wrong with a vinyl figure, and this one is darling. The look on Peppermint Patty’s face is priceless, as if she’s just realized something major and is trying to let her brain process it. At 4 inches tall, it’s a great accessory for any desk or shelf. Note that the other characters are available also, so like the plush toys above, mix and match!
I kind of want to eat this right now. First off, I love peppermint. Second off, it’s blended into delicious marshmallow awesomeness, guaranteeing that it will melt in your mouth. You can get 12, 24, or 36 pieces (got for 36 because sharing is nice). Your Peppermint Patty lover with a sweet tooth is going to be over the moon with this gift!
It is hard to go wrong with a themed coffee mug, making this a fun choice when shopping. The look here is also precious. Peppermint Patty is contemplating the mysteries of the universe, as I often to when I drink my coffee in the morning. The mug comes in two sizes, small and mega, and is dishwasher and microwave safe. You also get an option of black handle and black inside. I’d personally go for the black accented mega, but that’s because more coffee (or tea) is always better 🙂
