15 Fantastic Holiday Gifts for Animal Crossing Fans
It’s hard to believe the holiday season is among us already, and if you’re still mentally stuck in the month of March, you’re not alone. 2020 has brought the world many surprises, including one little piece of joy: another installment of Animal Crossing. With Nintendo’s beloved peaceful simulation game breaking all kinds of sales records this year, there’s a pretty strong chance you have an Animal Crosser in your life. If you’re still searching for the perfect, thoughtful gift that’ll warm their heart, look no further — we’ve compiled a list of the best Animal Crossing gifts on the internet to make your holiday shopping a little easier.
1. Balloon Present Backpack ($49)
Any Animal Crossing player will immediately recognize this symbol of a floating balloon carrying a present wrapped in a red bow. We love the simplicity of this design and the charming light blue color, but you can find tons of other options here. This backpack can fit a standard 15-inch laptop in its big pocket, and has adjustable straps to fit any body type. It also has a zippered front pocket for accessories like cell phones or hand sanitizer.
2. Dodo Airlines Logo Mask ($10)
Anyone traveling from their island in Animal Crossing: New Horizons knows there’s only one way in or out — and that’s through Dodo Airlines. Dodo Airlines oxymoronically offers players a way to fly to friends’ islands, and even functions as a postal service. It seems that masks are here to stay (at least for the foreseeable future), making this gift one of the most practical on the list. Featuring the familiar Dodo Airlines logo on a vibrant, bright blue background, this reusable mask comes in a 2-layer adult size and a version for children 13 and under. You can also find a plethora of other Animal Crossing themed masks here.
3. “Let’s Talk Infrastructure” Ugly Sweater Ornament ($15)
If the Animal Crosser on your list loves putting up a Christmas tree every year, this clever wooden ornament will hit the nail on the head. Shaped and themed after an ugly Christmas sweater, this laser-cut ornament proudly displays the words “Let’s Talk Infrastructure” — a tip of the hat to a well-known dialogue option in the game. The signature Animal Crossing leaf logo is also printed across the top and bottom of the sweater; a reference fans will appreciate right away.
4. Loan Sweet Loan Women’s Crewneck ($45)
Even if you don’t play Animal Crossing yourself, you’ve surely heard utterances of the notorious raccoon landlord, Tom Nook. No player on the planet can avoid a loan from Tom Nook, and this crewneck sweater will drive the point home for your poor, indebted villager. This women’s sweater from BoxLunch features a cross-stitch inspired graphic with the words “Loan Sweet Loan” printed inside a whimsical wreath of different Animal Crossing icons. Available in a variety of sizes from XS to 2X, this gift is adorable, hilarious, and for some, a little too real.
5. Animal Crossing Baby Onesie ($18)
If this Animal Crossing inspired baby onesie isn’t the cutest thing you’ve ever seen, you’re lying. This onesie is perfect for any tot, with sizes ranging from newborn up to 18 months, and features the precious floating balloon icon with the phrase, “A new villager has arrived.” It also comes in an equally-adorable Nook Twins design that shows an illustration of the game’s lovable raccoon youths in place of the balloon.
