The Christmas Gaming Gift Guide: Nintendo Switch Gift ideas

So if you’re purchasing for the current or soon to be Nintendo fan there’s a lot of gifts you can go with this festive period. The nice thing about Nintendo is we have a huge amount of price points and stock and availability for gifts that some of the other platforms are lacking right now. Nintendo Switch gift ideas ahead will include discounts on one of the most popular consoles on the market in the Nintendo Switch console presenting you with the best prices and also a plethora of other Nintendo Switch games and accessories.


Nintendo Switch consoles Christmas gift deals

The Nintendo Switch is one of the only consoles that has reliable stock right now and that includes the all new Nintendo Switch OLED which boasts a fantastic new screen which is ideal for people who love playing on the go. We have quite a few Nintendo Switch OLED deals available, however if you’re looking to spend a bit less then perhaps the Nintendo Switch Lite or Standard versions are more relevant. 

The Nintendo Switch standard console recently received a decent price drop and Nintendo also launched a new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle that offers fantastic value. 

The Nintendo Switch Lite offers an even cheaper option however it is exclusively used as a hand-held and can not be connected to your TV; so keep that in mind! All of these consoles make great Nintendo Switch gift ideas.

When it comes to accessories for the Nintendo Switch there is most certainly no shortage; with different colour joy-cons and the revered Nintendo Switch Pro controller which is must-have for those who use their Nintendo Switch in docked (TV) mode.

The Christmas Gaming Gifts Guide: Playstation

Gaming gifts for Playstation products are quite simple really; a selection of incredible first-party exclusives, solid accessories and a fantastic console. When it comes to the latter the PS5 is rather hard to come by now as many of you will know, but we will include some tips and tricks that may help you if you’re after the elusive PS5 stock.


Playstation Consoles Christmas gift deals

So as you’re probably aware the PS5 stock issues continue to haunt us as we go into the festive period. Although they’re difficult to get, we've helped 1000s of people secure their consoles over at our Discord and via our PS5 that monitors stock whether it be the Playstation 5 disc edition or the Playstation 5 digital edition

We track stock up to the minute and post notifications on Discord to ensure you can beat the queues and get hold of that difficult to track down PS5 Disc Edition or PS5 Digital Edition.

PS5 Digital Edition
2 deals from £479.99
2 deals from £519.99

Playstation accessories Christmas gift deals

When it comes to accessories the PlayStation consoles both have a great offering of controllers and so forth. The PS4 consoles obviously have a greater deal of them based on the fact it has had a much longer life-span therefore more controller colourways etc. When it comes to the PS5 we are starting to see the dedicated accessories such as the coveted Dualsense controller, Pulse 3D headsets have more variants but there is not a great deal just yet. 

Check out our category pages on PS4 accessories and PS5 accessories and some best picks below.

Playstation games Christmas gift deals

Playstation is absolutely killing it of late when it comes to their exclusives and a lot of the older PS4 titles such as God of War and Marvel’s Spider Man have reached exceptionally reasonable prices, to the point they’d be great as a stocking filler (these games are also compatible on PS5). 

At a higher price point are the new PS5 exclusives like Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and Spider-man Miles Morales which have received glowing reviews and are sure to be a great gift for anyone who already owns a PS5 and hasn’t played these titles. 

We then obviously have all the third-party titles such as FIFA 22 and Call Of Duty: Vanguard which are already receiving a lot of price cuts and great deals on both PS4 and PS5 platforms. 

We've included some top picks below but jump on our PS4 games and PS5 games pages for more.

The Gaming Christmas Gifts Guide: Xbox

There are plenty of gaming gift options and deals available when buying for the Xbox fan or gamer; Xbox is smashing it on the controller front - far out-performing Playstation when it comes to releasing new limited editions and colours. 

They also have a console that is in stock and available with the all-digital Xbox Series S (an incredible value proposition paired with Xbox Game Pass). Then to top it off a growing list of games that are mostly all backwards compatible between the Xbox Series X|S consoles and the Xbox One. 


Xbox Consoles Christmas gift deals

As previously mentioned the only available console for Xbox (at time of writing) is the Xbox Series S: as the Xbox One is no longer in production and the Xbox Series X seems just as elusive than the PS5. 

If you’re looking to find Xbox Series X stock then check our Series X page and join our Discord where we post stock alerts and notifications to help our users get their hands on a console. We will also be doing this for the limited Xbox Series X Halo Infinite Edition

The Xbox Series S however is receiving an all-new bundle which is coming out this month with special content for Fortnite and Rocket league which would make a great gift for those who are interested in said titles. 

If you’re interested in the Xbox Series S then check out the best console deals available below.

Xbox Series S - 512GB
22 deals from £249.00
Xbox Series S - Fortnite + Rocket League
11 deals from £249.00
Xbox Series X - 1TB

Xbox Accessories Christmas gift deals

Xbox has such a fantastic collection of controllers, from slick and cool to bright and beautiful that make such a great gift; more controllers are never a bad thing in our book. 

Furthermore, a common complaint of the Xbox Series S and Series X owner is running out of memory on their console so perhaps the Seagate Storage Expansion 1TB SSD which easily slots in the back of the console and greatly increases memory capacity is an option for a gift, starting from £184.99 (a bit more on the expensive side, but incredibly useful).

Lately, we’ve seen the Xbox first-party games start to heat up with Forza Horizon 5 and Halo Infinite Multiplayer (which is free!) release and getting very positive receptions; now you can obviously buy these games but the way to get the most bang for your buck whilst enjoying these titles is with Xbox Game Pass

A subscription to Game Pass Ultimate is definitely our go to pick to enhance the gaming experience of any Xbox fan. You can pick up physical versions of these subscriptions from retailers like Currys and they give Xbox gamers access to a huge library of games including brand-new first party titles including the aforementioned Halo Infinite (Campaign releasing December 8th) and Forza Horizon 5.
