4. Nintendo Switch Pro Controller

Next up, we have an entry that will definitely appeal to Nintendo fans. While there are many fans of the Joy-Cons for the Nintendo Switch, some players may find them clunky. For those players in your life, a set of Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers will allow them to have a more enjoyable gaming experience. These controllers, while they may be a bit more on the pricey side, are exceptionally durable and have a really long battery life before you need to replace the battery. Additionally, you can purchase a charging deck for the controllers, which is fantastic.

Added to this functionality is the creative design of some of the Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers. They are often themed after fan-favorite Nintendo franchises such as The Legend of Zelda and the Super Mario franchise. This means that regardless of what series the person you are getting gifts for is into, there is something here for everyone. For fans of motion controls in games, these controllers also happen to have that functionality as well.

3. Nintendo E-Shop Gift Card

Next on our list of fantastic Nintendo gift ideas, we have one that is sure to please everyone. The gift of a Nintendo E-Shop gift card allows the receiver to choose what their gift will be. This makes it an excellent option for those who might not necessarily understand what the gift receiver would want. You can choose from many different increments of value to place on the cards as well, meaning you are in control of how much they are worth. This is wonderful for those buyers who don't quite understand the ins and outs of the gaming market as a whole.

These cards can also be purchased digitally from various retailers, such as Amazon, etc. However, we highly recommend that if you purchase digitally, buy directly from the source from Nintendo. This just takes a lot of the hassle and confusion out of shopping for E-Shop gift cards. Additionally, you can purchase these in person at locations such as your nearest Best Buy or GameStop. So if you are someone who is less knowledgeable about gaming or just indecisive about your gifts, make sure you check out these gift cards.
