Nintendo Can Help with Some Last-Minute Holiday Gift Ideas

Even if you’re not a gamer, we’re sure you’ve heard of Mario. Some say he’s one of the most iconic pop culture characters of all time!

Since we all have a healthy mixture of gamers and non-gamers in the family, buying a last-minute holiday gift featuring Mario is always a safe and creative bet. But what to buy? There are a ton of great choices, and we’re here to help!

For the gamers in the family, you can pick up the recently released Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS. This portable version of the hit Wii U game includes the most Mario levels ever featured in a hand-held game. Even the most hard-core players will have a blast completing the game’s numerous challenges.

For a great family game, try Mario Party Star Rush. Available for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, Mario Party Star Rush encourages families to play together, with new features that make it possible for up to four people to play together simultaneously. This fast-paced, portable multiplayer game offers something for everyone and can be played for a quick session or a full afternoon of fun. No more waiting your turn or determining who goes next!

Mario amiibo figures are also a popular choice for gamers and non-gamers alike. While each different Mario amiibo figure can be used in multiple games, the figures themselves are so cool that they are fun to just collect! (Not to mention that amiibo fit perfectly in any stocking.)

For a gift that anyone will love, consider picking up one of these Mario-themed gifts, like a Super Mario Bros. coffee mug, Mario Kart RC Racer or Mario water bottle. So many powered-up options
