Nintendo Christmas Gift Guide

As the most wonderful time of the year rapidly approaches, you may be bereft of ideas of what to buy the Nintendork in your life. Look no further, as we have compiled a list of interesting gifts, ranging from jumpers, to cases, to ducks…. Read on for the Nintendo Christmas gift guide.

Christmas Jumpers – Numskull Designs and GeekStore pulling the wool over our eyes

Christmas Jumpers. You either love ’em or hate ’em, right?

Wrong. Thanks to Numskull Designs and Geekstore, you’re absolutely going to love them. The Nintendo range is available in three delicious designs, all if which can be ordered at the handy link below.

If you’re not a fan of Nintendo (why are you here?) Numskull designs also cater to a wide range of nerd culture needs, offering designs from popular franchises as Star Wars, Harry Potter and Batman, to name but a few. Make sure to take a gander at everything they have to offer.

Peruse the entire range at your pleasure/peril

It would be remiss of us to not give an honorable mention to the TUBBZ range, Numskull Design’s range of cosplaying ducks. Whilst not (yet?) licensed by Nintendo, they do offer some truly phenomenal designs, and if it weren’t for Mumtendo already having put up with an almost complete amiibo collection, these bad boys would be scattered throughout the halls of Nintendad Manor.

NB. These ducks are not suitable for bath time shenanigans.

Enhanced Wireless Controller by PowerA – Gotta Catch ’em all

Enhanced Wireless Controllers from Power A are more than just an alternative to the Pro Controller, they offer a reflection of self, with a vast and eclectic array of designs readily available.

The Afterglow from PDP Gaming – Light up, Light up!

The Christmas Tree doesn’t have to be the most incandescent item in your home this year, thanks to the Afterglow Ctrl from PDP gaming. The wired version supports chat and audio, meaning you can plug your headset or headphones directly to the controller and enjoy audio design or team chat alike. The wireless model loses this feature but remains a beautiful piece of kit and, obviously, doesn’t have any wires, which is always nice.
