Do you have a friend who loves all things Nintendo? Maybe she’s been a fan since she was a kid and has been enjoying the recent Nintendo resurgence. Or, maybe she is a kid and is just getting into the iconic video games for the first time. Either way, sometimes you just know your loved one wants a Nintendo-themed gift for their birthday. Here’s how to pick the very best one.
How to Choose a Nintendo Birthday Gift
Nintendo has seen a huge resurgence in recent years. Thanks in part to the popularity of the Nintendo Switch as well as the popularity of games like Super Mario Odyssey, Super Smash Brothers, and Mario Kart 8, Nintendo is suddenly all the rage once again. This new resurgence has drawn in new and retro Nintendo lovers like never before. If you have a loved one in your life who can’t get enough of these iconic video games, then choosing a Nintendo-themed gift is sure to make their day.
You could always spring for the latest video game or game console, but you run the risk that she already has her console of choice. You also might not have that kind of budget. Luckily, there are so many other Nintendo-themed options on the market to choose from. For instance, you could consider a Nintendo-themed home décor item to spruce up the style in her home, such as a lamp, doormat, or piece of art. Or, choose a comfy t-shirt or hoodie that features her favorite Nintendo character. You could even opt for one of our Nintendo-themed gifts from Edible Arrangements® that combine the fun of video games with the deliciousness of chocolate covered fruit. Yum!
