Animal Crossing Holiday Gift Guide 2021

Now that the holiday season is approaching, it’s the perfect time to provide Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans with gifts inspired by the game.

The holiday season is fast approaching, which means it’s a great time to start looking into gifts for Animal Crossing: New Horizons fans. Fortunately, there’s plenty of official merchandise to browse through this year, sold both through the official Nintendo Character Shop and licensed partners online. From sweatshirts and backpacks to pins and plushies, there is a wide range of options to pick between in an equally broad price range. Here are some of the best Animal Crossing-inspired gifts for the 2021 holidays.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons saw something of a revival recently thanks to the massive Animal Crossing 2.0 update, which almost entirely refreshed the game by adding in new characters, locations, and even gameplay mechanics. This came as a welcome change to longtime players, many of whom were discouraged by the lack of significant content updates over the past year. Alongside the free 2.0 update came the game’s first paid DLC, Animal Crossing: New Horizons Happy Home Paradise, which puts players into the role of a dream vacation home designer. So much new content at once helped to renew interest in the game, and more than likely even brought new Animal Crossing fans into the fold just in time for the holidays.

November’s in-game updates also came with new physical merchandise, such as the brand new Series 5 amiibo cards for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. These cards introduced several new villagers to the game, like Shino and Ione, as well as provided long-awaited cards for fan-favorite Animal Crossing residents, including Raymond. These amiibo card packs could be a great place to start for those who are unsure how to shop for the Animal Crossing fans in their life, but the list of potential gifts by no means ends there.

Those Animal Crossing players who are more in favor of tiny accessories can look towards these pins shaped after the fruit trees featured in Animal Crossing, which could easily make for a fun splash of color on a denim jacket or backpack.

Slider-patterned sweatpants. There are also some pastel Isabelle-themed sweatpants that would be great to wear while lounging about during the 2021 holidays.
