    1. An official Nintendo Switch Edition Portable Charger for that one gamer who prefers the portable Switch experience.


    Promising Review: "Served me well on my international trip! That long plane flight was much more tolerable with my Nintendo Switch. Works as advertised and is of good quality!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (or $149.00 for greater charging capacity).

    2. OR, a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to give the Switch that signature ~console feel~ for anyone that prefers to play on their television.


    Promising Review: "This is one of the most comfortable controllers I have ever used, which increases the enjoyment of my Switch games even more. The battery life is good, the layout makes sense, and it has built in motion-sensors for gyro-scope aiming, which comes in handy for games like "Splatoon 2" and "Zelda: Breath of the Wild." —D Fay

    Get it from Amazon for $62.98.

    3. A Glass Screen Protector, because let's be honest: The Switch's screen is plastic, which means it's more vulnerable to scratches, which means you're going to scratch it up without one of these.


    Promising Review: "Stop looking for a better option, this is the protector your Switch NEEDS." —Unreallystic

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    4. Luigi's Mansion 3, for the ghost hunter in all of us.


    Promising Review: "The game rewards Luigi for being as destructive as possible, and smashing even innocuous objects will sometimes make it rain money. I found it quite cathartic. Ever wish you could just obliterate clutter and find cash? This game is for you!!" —KandC’s Parents

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    5. An Ergonomic Switch Grip, for the person whose hands are just a liiiiittle too big for the Switch.


    Promising Review: "This grip is perfect. As a person with large hands, this thing is a godsend. The Switch now fits my hands more naturally and I don't feel like I'm going to drop it." —finch460

    Get it from Amazon for $27.

    6. Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening, for your friend who needs to scratch that Zelda itch.


    Promising Review: "Brings back so many memories playing this on the Gameboy Color when I was a kid! The gameplay is so smooth and the graphics are absolutely gorgeous. Highly recommend!" —JEXTREME

    Get it from Amazon for $53.99.

    7. A Switch Carrying Case, for the person who wants to compactly bring all their goodies on the go — great for flying!


    Promising Review: "Honestly love this carrying case. The way it’s molded to fit the switch is perfect and keeps it from moving around or rattling. More than enough slots to hold and store games. I doubt I’ll fill it to capacity anytime soon." —Gerson Camacho

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    8. A new set of Joy-Cons, because the only thing more fun than playing Switch is playing with friends!


    Promising Review: "I really enjoy the Joy-Con as it can be split into two separate controllers and used by two separate people. I think it's extremely innovative." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon in red and blue for $66.99 (prices vary based on color).

    9. A Nintendo Switch Lite, for the gamer who does all their playing on the go.


    Promising Review: "I've thoroughly enjoyed this smaller, lighter, handheld version of the Nintendo Switch. It's the perfect size for a device that you can throw in your bag, but at the same time, has the power to play expansive games that you can get lost in." —Parker

    Get it from Amazon for $199.99.

    10. The Ring Fit Adventure (Switch's take on the Wii Fit), for that one friend who's thinking about canceling their gym membership.

    Nintendo, Amazon

    Promising Review: "I love this product so much. My wife and I bought it because we wanted a way to keep in shape during the winter months. We don’t like gyms and don’t have room for a treadmill so this was a perfect choice for us. All we have to do to work our is move our coffee table over and strap in." —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    11. A Gooseneck Table Mount Stand, for your super lazy friend who wants to play the Switch while lying down.


    Promising Review: "This is exactly what I was looking for. I had been wanting to play my Nintendo Switch in bed without having to hold up the entire console. This mount allows me to have the screen hover above my head while my arms and neck can relax. This is the ultimate in laziness and I love it. :)" —Michael K

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    12. Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield, because the games are still just as fun as they were when you were a kid.

    Game Freak

    Promising Review: "This game is exactly like the older versions (red, blue, yellow, etc.) but with better graphics/gameplay! I opened it and have not stopped playing since I got it! You level up your Pokemon through BATTLES with wild Pokemon, trainers, or gym leaders. Gotta catch them all!" —kevin joseph Sundquist

    Get it from Amazon for $58.75 each.

    13. The Spyro Reignited Trilogy, for your friend who insists that the Playstation 1 was the best system.


    Promising Review: "The nostalgia for Spyro is real. I couldn’t get enough of these games when I played them on my original PS1 back in the day. If you told a ten year old me that in the future, it would be possible to play again on a tiny screen on the go wherever I was (in a much higher quality), it would be the best news ever. It’s pretty awesome." —Matthew

    Get it from Amazon for $35.00.

    14. A 128 GB SD Card, for the person who only buys digital games and needs way more space on their Switch.


    Promising Review: "Bought this for my Nintendo Switch. It's a very good card, writes and reads at high speeds, and enough storage to last a while. It's actually noticeably faster loading than my previous SD card. I'm very happy with this purchase, and it's a good price so when I need more space I'll order this again." —Michael

    Get it from Amazon for $19.49.

    15. Yoshi's Crafted World, for your friend who loves cute things.


    Promising Review: "Bought this for my husband and 5-year-old daughter to play together. We just got it today... It kept their attention for 3 hours already. Graphics were good. They enjoyed cooperating in the hunt as a 2 player team. My daughter said it's better than Mario Cart." —Nicole Johnson

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    16. A VORI Gaming Backpack, for your 21st century friend who owns more gadgets than they can carry.


    Promising Review: "This has been one of the best backpacks I've had in a while. Along with keeping all of my switch, and switch accessories easily packed, I can have so much more in there." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $54.99 (available in three colors).

    17. Super Mario Maker 2, for your friend who knows if they had the tools they could be the next great video game designer.


    Promising Review: "One of the best experiences on the Switch that anyone can have. Endless amounts of Mario levels that either you or others can make/play. It gets difficult, but that adds to the challenge of getting better at platformer games." —Taylor Straley

    Get it from Amazon for $49.92.

    18. A Game Card Case, for the person who needs all their games with them all the time.


    Promising Review: "This case is a solid purchase. It holds your Switch games nice and secure without making it impossible to get them out. The case is really sturdy and well made and I feel more than safe having my games secured in this case." —Pleepleus

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    19. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, for that one friend who's a huge Marvel stan.


    Promising Review: "This game is freakin' fantastic. Playing the past two installments in the series long ago was nice, but this is a breath of fresh air. You feel like an absolute badass when unlocking your favorite Marvel characters and seeing them level up, only to realize that you're about to wipe out all of the baddies in the sweetest fashion." —Evan Hart

    Get it from Amazon for $48.96.

    20. An Adjustable Charging Stand for the person who like to prop 'n' play but who's concerned about battery life.


    Promising Review: "This stand and charger is capable of charging while you play, and is a huge improvement over the stock kickstand that’s built into the switch. I was on a 11 hour plane ride and this was a perfect solution for keeping my switch charged and at the perfect angle while playing." —Meko

    Get it from Amazon for $17.49.

    21. Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Complete Edition, for that friend looking to play an instant classic.

    CD Projekt Red

    Promising Review: "The bottom line here is simple. The game plays smoothly. The load times are far quicker than they were for me on PS4. The frame rate keeps up at around a steady 30fps. The graphical downgrade, while definitely noticeable, is very passable and, on the small switch screen, looks just fine." —Daniel

    Get it from Amazon for $49.92.

    22. Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age, for your friend who loves old school games and has a lot of time on their hands.

    Square Enix

    Promising Review: "This game is amazing. It looks amazing, plays great, the music is beautiful, and it has so much content. It's an old school JRPG so expect a grind and classic turn-based battles. I love the 16-bit mode." —edgar herrera

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    23. A set of Thumb Grips, so your friend with big ol' fingers can have an easier time playing the Switch in handheld mode.


    Promising Review: "These are awesome. The Joycon thumbsticks are just a little bit slippery, and especially long game sessions they can sometimes become a little tiresome on the thumbs, but these thumb grips work great, fit perfect, and add just the right level of friction. Now I can play long sessions without tiring out my thumbs and without any concern of slipping." —Nicholas Ewalt

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four styles).

    24. Untitled Goose Game, for your friend who loves causing trouble.

    House House

    Promising Review: "You play a goose terrorizing a town with pranks. Figuring out how to do the list of pranks is the goal and a hoot!" —Ashlynn

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    25. A custom Switch skin, for that friend who's super creative:


    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available 16 styles) or customize your own for around the same price over at DBrands

    26. And Cuphead, for that friend who's a little bit weird and enjoys a challenge.


    Promising Review: "Cuphead is a special kind of game, and one that we do not get many of. Sometimes, it feels like an updated Megaman game; other times, it feels like a series of 2D Dark Souls boss battles. It is difficult but the learning curve isn't terrible; I found the game more forgiving than I originally thought." —Charles Drake
