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 iconic Nintendo mascots encased in glass domes…. Read on for the Nintendo Christmas gift guide.

With COVID decimating the lives of so many, we ask that – and this is important -if you can do so safely, without endangering your own health or that of others, shop locally. Support your local bookstore or boutique arts and crafts store if you can.

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. While the only Nintendo flavour on offer this year comes in the form of that loveable electric mouse, Pikachu taking centre stage with backup from the OG starters, Bulbasaur (pronounced GOAT, weird spelling I know), Squirtle and Charmander. Alongside that, The Star Trek Enterprise uniform is particularly special and The Child (Baby Yoda) is always going to be a winner.

2K Sports. It’s in the name! Wait. What?

They might not run as well as they do on the more beefier home consoles, but the fact that 2K even bring them to Nintendo Switch is admirable, in doing so providing three unique sport offerings on Nintendo’s hybrid. A word of warning, NBA 2K requires an almighty download and as such, you’ll need a micro SD card ready. Actually, I’m gonna link some SD cards below as well.

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


The Christmas Tree doesn’t have to be the most luminescent 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.

Still on the fence? Get down from there you lunatic and read our reviews.
