The Christmas holiday season is right around the corner, and there are only a few weeks left to get the perfect gift for the gamers in your life. For some gamers, new video games are the only gift they really need. But for anyone who wants to express their love for gaming in other ways, there are more than a few options available.
For our gamer gift guide, we're looking at some of the gaming-inspired merchandise that caught our collective eye. Weirdly enough, there's a ton of Spyro the Dragon merch this year. It's the 20th anniversary of Spyro, and the recently released Spyro Reignited Trilogy probably played a big role in that as well. There's probably never been a better time to get a Spyro puzzle or a journal that has an unexpected fringe benefit. The Spyro incense burner is also pretty amusing.
In terms of apparel, we're really partial to that black Nintendo 64 pullover hoodie. It's no substitute for a Nintendo 64 Classic, so get on that, Nintendo! Because that would have totally made our list, if it was actually a thing.
Finally, Nerd Clothing gave us "street wear meets geek wear," with T-shirts that were inspired by classic NES games. Even the packaging of these shirts sets our nerd hearts aflutter by aping the cartridge casings that Nintendo used to have.
