The Nintendo Switch is going to be a popular gift this holiday season. But you don’t need to buy a console just to make someone happy. Heck, you don’t even need to spend the money on an entire game.

If you know someone who owns a Switch already, a lot of accessories and other items that can help plus their experience. This guide shows you some of the best and most fun goodies you can get the Switch fans in your life.

The Switch does not have much internal storage, so anyone who owns the console is going to need a decent Micro SD card. Any Micro SD will work, but it’s best to get a pretty big one so you’ll be set for years and multiple games. The SanDisk Ultra 200GB Micro SD is a good amount of space for a good price, but you can explore other (cheaper) options.

Those Nintendo Switch cartridges are small. This case stores up to 24 four of them in the same place, saving you shelf space and the possibility of losing games. If you have a friend who still likes buying physical games, this is a nice, inexpensive gift.

If your friend likes Nintendo, they probably have some Amiibo. Buying him more of the cute figurines wouldn’t be too bad a gift, but you could also be a bit more creative and get this fun stand that can hold six of them.

OK, maybe there won’t be that many instances where your friend needs to charge their Switch in the car, unless their often a passenger on long road trips (and doesn’t get car sick). But this is a pretty cute device with its Mario Question Block look. And, hey, maybe your friend does need some of that sweet cigarette lighter energy to keep his Switch gaming going.
