Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch is a popular console that doubles as a portable or home system. The joy-con controllers have motion sensor abilities that allow you to swing swords, dance and more.

The Nintendo Switch has become perhaps one of the most versatile and popular video game consoles in the last few years. And with consoles like the Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X in limited supply, the Switch is the most readily available console on the market. Now with three different variations of the console available (Switch, Switch Lite & Switch OLED), it makes the perfect gift for just about anyone in the younger demographic. If you are looking for a console to gift to your loved one, the Nintendo Switch makes the perfect gift for almost any preteen, teenager or young adult.

You might also want to consider buying a game or two to go along with it. To view the entire Nintendo collection of consoles and games, click here.

Oculus Quest 2

Virtual reality is great for gaming, but it’s also a game-changing development for areas like education, job training and helping people with disabilities experience the world.

Speaking of video games, another gaming console that is hot on the market this year is the Oculus Quest 2, a Virtual Reality (VR) headset. VR has exploded in popularity over the last few years largely due to its unique ability to immerse you in a completely different world.

With the way this device is changing and shaping the future, the Oculus will make the perfect gift for just about anyone in your life.
