Better Have My Bells – Coffee Mug

Now I am a BIG coffee drinker. You know that meme where it’s like “Don’t talk to me until I’ve had this much coffee” and the coffee mug is like a 2 gallon jug? Well that’s an accurate representation of my coffee addiction, and this one mug I would love to add to my collection and sip from as I forever landscape my island. $16.99

Bells Bag – Functional Drawstring Bag

An 100% velvet, super soft and smooth drawstring bag can make a really fun gift, and let me tell you why. Not only is the bag a good size for make-up, a Nintendo Switch + games + accessories, and any other gift on or off this list; as long as it fits within 13.7” x 14.9” the gift(s) can be stuffed into this bad boy, drawn tight, and stuffed under the tree! They’ll get the gifts inside as well as the bag itself! A gift that keeps on giving. $24.99 $16.99


Animal Crossing: New Horizons Game

Now what kind of helpful Holiday season gift giving guide would this be without the actual Animal Crossing: New Horizons game itself! With 99% of the people who’ve bought this game absolutely loving it, you can’t go wrong with this gift…unless the receiver of your glorious gifts isn’t into ACNH; then it’s probably not the best gift to give them $54.99

Animal Crossing PLUSHIEEES!!

I’ll admit it these little guys are adorable, and would make excellent cuddle toys. Just a bit of advice though, make sure to give these guys a thorough was before giving them to your little ones, or even for yourself. Not that these things are nasty or anything, just with today’s current events you can never be too careful!

Anyways, the amazon listing button will take you to a listing vetted by me (4.5/5 star reviews), and the second button is for an Animal Crossing Plushie amazon search because there are many other plushies to choose from! $16.99 (a few of these plushies are currently unavailable, so act fast!)

Animal Crossing Villager NFC Cards

What are NFC Cards? If you’re unsure of what these, I can clear that fuzzy feeling right up. First off, these cards are just like Amiibo, BUT at a fraction of the price! Two Amiibo can easily cost $54.99, and in this pack you are getting 72 cards/different villagers. Secondly, NFC is a type of data transfer with these cards holding specific information (for example, the Stitches card will have the villager Stitches inside).


Using an NFC card: Continuing from above, you would then need to be playing ACNH, head to the Town Hall, interact with the ATM Machine (green leaf machine on the right when you walk inside), put the Villager Card over your Right Joy-Con’s joystick, and wallah, you’ve just invited the villager to visit your campsite on your island! You can also use these to invite villagers on Phototopia for some EPIC photo sessions! $54.99

Animal Crossing New Horizons Face Masks

A great idea for those working in an occupation that requires a mask during the entire shift: waiter/waitress, nursing, etc. Also, if your country is like Denmark and requires masks while grocery shopping (which is something I do multiple times a week) these are a life saver! These ANCH face masks are soft and comfortable enough to wear all day, and simply give them a wash when needed, and safely re-use! Easier on the environment, and on your wallet! $19.99


Joy-Con Thumb Grips

Another cute accessory that can be really helpful, especially with sore fingers after playing ACNH for a while! These thumb grips just pop on the Joy-Cons and provide an extra bit of cushion between your thumbs and the hard plastic. Add these into the Drawstring Bells Bag above as a great “filler” gift! The price isn’t bad either for the quality and design: $6.99

Wireless Nintendo Switch Controller

I feature Timmy & Tommy on this controller, but there are actually a few others to choose from! The other Animal Crossing wireless controller from PowerA (a Nintendo certified accessory maker) is K.K. Slider, but there are also some awesome, off-topic Pokémon Sword and Shield Controllers. Two year limited warranty and AA batteries are included which supply 30 hours of gameplay! $47.00

New Horizons Carrying Case

There is definitely a theme throughout this post of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons green leaf and that mint/maybe soft green/blue color, and this ACNH Switch carrying case is no exception! I personally have the white background/mint leaf case, and it’s really durable, compact, and holds everything I need while on the go! The case will also hold a Nintendo Switch Lite. $19.99

Officially Licensed Nintendo Socks!

Full length Animal Crossing: New Horizons themed socks in white, green, and pink! They are made out of 98% polyester, 2% cotton, and fit women’s size 4-7.5 and men’s 4-6. Get them in a 3-pack for $20.69.


Official Companion Guide

For those wanting a little something extra, or even knowing someone who is starting to get a little bored with New Horizons; the official companion guide can liven up the lovely experience once again! It has every single item, building, interactions/emotes with villagers, guides for land/waterscaping, NookPhone guides, and much more. It’s literally the game in book form! $26.97

Water Bottle & Journal Combo

I have a customized bullet journal that I use to keep track of my University classes, work shifts, and a bunch of other fast changing plans, and it is easy to say without my journal I would feel lost! Writing in my journal is also some “me” time that I look forward to each and every time I get even 3 minutes to open it up. I really like the inside of this journal, you open it up to a yearly overview to plan long-term milestones in advance, and then daily pages afterwards to plan day by day activities for the coming year 2020-2021.

For just the water bottle: $19.99, for both the water bottle and journal: $34.99


Bellioniaire T-Shirt

Fun for the whole family haha! Whether the husband or wife will wear one or not, there is definitely an option to do so, as well as different colors for the little one(s)! I’ve chosen green for the kids shirt in this example because it’s the best color aka my favorite! $22.99

Ergonomic Joy Pad – Save Your Wrists!

This design should have been the default design with the mainstream Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons, but luckily for us we have this wrist-saving alternative! These should save your wrists from long hours of land/waterscaping and item hunting! I’m putting these on my Christmas list, because I will have an extra set of joy-cons, another usb charging cord, and the ergonomic holder. These can also be charged by the console too! $39.99

Animal Crossing Enamel Pins

I’m a bit of a pin geek myself with my own Etsy shop, Piniverse, and if it weren’t for copyright reasons, I would definitely add these four to the shop! The present pin is my favorite because it’s just like the in-game balloon present and would make a great addition to my backpack (or a jacket, hat, you name it!) These come in this pack of 4 pins you see here. $13.99

I did look around for a listing to buy them separately, there wasn’t one, but having these four would make a more complete collection that just having one anyway. These would also make a great addition to the Drawstring Bells Bag gift I’ve talked about earlier!

“Sorry I Can’t, My Villagers Need Me” Socks

Admittedly, this is a bit of a cheeky gift, but it’s also freaking awesome! I love these kind of socks with sayings on them. In fact, I believe my wife has a pair that says something about wine…yeah she does! I just found them! They say “If You Can Read This, Bring Me A Glass Of Wine” $15.89


Animal Crossing Blankets!!

It’s time to snuggle up on the couch with your Nintendo Switch and a cup of hot chocolate! These massive blankets come in four different variations with this huge collection of villagers blanket being my personal favorite! Which one is yours? $33.99

Carrying Case – Nintendo Switch Lite

A really unique Switch Lite case with enough room to carry your games in the small pouch, and your extra controllers, charging cable, screen wipe cloth and more in the top zippable pouch! $24.99 $19.99

This carrying case is specially for the Nintendo Switch Lite, so please keep that in mind before you buy! If you are looking for a carrying case for the regular Nintendo Switch, simply click this to be brought to the gift idea on this page.


Animal Crossing Hooded Sweatshirt!

An extremely comfortable looking hooded sweatshirt with many animal crossing designs! My favorite for the just hanging out on the couch would be the villager heads print, and out on the town I would happily choose the ACNH white leaf design. What about you? Which of the 10 designs would you choose?? Depending on size, the prices are $15.99 – 29.99

Animal Crossing New Horizons Nintendo Switch

And of course, just like including the game, what kind of guide would this be without the Official Animal Crossing: New Horizons Special Edition Nintendo Switch! Is it finally time to buy this beautiful gaming console for the girlfriend/boyfriend, wife/husband, really close friend, or yourself because you’ve definitely earned it? Either way, it’s definitely a gift to make this holiday season a special one!

And that’s all of the worthy Animal Crossing gifts I have found that were high enough quality to be put on CrossingCharm, shared with all of you, and can help spread a little cheer this Holiday Season!
