15 Great Animal Crossing: New Horizons Holiday Gifts To Get In Time For Christmas (Gift Guide)

12 months ago 2 Comments

The holidays are in full swing and if you haven’t gotten that perfect gift yet for your Animal Crossing obsessed friend or family member, there’s still time!

In this Holiday Gift Guide, we’ll go over 15 different great Animal Crossing themed gifts to get your loved ones including game accessories and general merchandise. Or perhaps for yourself if something is enticing enough…

We’ve chosen to compromise this list of products on Amazon due to their availability of fast and reliable shipping in time for Christmas, but it’s worth checking out Etsy as well for more unique options.

Isabelle & Tom Nook Animal Crossing Mega Plush

Get a mega-sized squishy 15-inch plush of either Isabelle or Tom Nook by Club Mocchi for $29.99 at Amazon! Officially licensed by Nintendo.

Apple & Leaf Animal Crossing Junior Plush

Looking for something a bit smaller and affordable? 6-inch Apple or Leaf plush by Club Mocchi are also available for $14.99 at Amazon. Officially licensed by Nintendo.

Animal Crossing Mini Backpacks

For those looking to flaunt Animal Crossing with them everywhere they go, Controller Gear makes an excellent line-up of Animal Crossing Mini Backpacks in a variety of designs!

Choose from ‘Bellionaire’ Rose Gold, Fruit Pattern, K.K. Quilted, Outdoor Pattern, Teal Leaves, and Tom Nook Quilted at Amazon from $29.99 to $69.99. Officially licensed by Nintendo.

Animal Crossing Sling Bags

If a Mini Backpack doesn’t feel like quite the right fit, how about a Sling Bag?

Controller Gear has a mini line-up of Animal Crossing Sling Bags as well in three designs of Tom Nook, Teal Leaves, and Fruit Pattern at Amazon for $49.99. Officially licensed by Nintendo.

Reusable Animal Crossing Travel Coffee Mug

It’s absurdly simple, but almost needs a travel coffee mug — why not make it an Animal Crossing one? Paladone’s Animal Crossing Reusable Travel Coffee Mug is covered in Animal Crossing characters at Amazon for $12.99. Officially licensed by Nintendo.

Assorted Animal Crossing: New Horizons T-Shirts

There’s plenty of Animal Crossing: New Horizons T-Shirts you can find, but a few of our favorites on Amazon include the Sorry I Can’t I Have To Water My Flowers, Villager & Celeste Portrait, Periodic Table Of Villagers, and Group Shot Character Faces designs. Officially licensed by Nintendo.

Celeste & Tom Nook Animal Crossing Beanies

Perfect for the cold winter season, the Celeste and Tom Nook Animal Crossing Beanies will keep you warm and cute at Amazon for $16.55-$21.99! Officially licensed by Nintendo.

Animal Crossing Character or Villager Plush

It’s an obvious gift, but you can’t go wrong with a plush of someone’s favorite Animal Crossing special character or villager! There’s a pretty wide selection on Amazon including Isabelle, Raymond, Celeste, K.K. Slider, Fauna, Dom, and more.

Note that most plush of a new character introduced in Animal Crossing: New Horizons are unlikely to be officially licensed and quality may vary.

Animal Crossing Steel Water Bottle & Notebook Journal Set

Another great pair of Animal Crossing lifestyle accessories is the Steel Water Bottle & Notebook Journal Set by Controller Gear at Amazon for $34.99! Officially licensed by Nintendo.

You can also get the Water Bottle standalone in a few other different designs — check them out here.

PowerA Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch Wireless Controller

Complete your Animal Crossing experience on Nintendo Switch with an officially licensed Animal Crossing Wireless Controller from PowerA at Amazon for $49.99!

There are a couple drawbacks to be aware of with this controller — it lacks Amiibo and Rumble support. Neither feature is essential for Animal Crossing though and we’d still recommend it.

PowerA Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch Wired Controller

PowerA also makes a more affordable wired Animal Crossing Controller option with a completely different playful design that some may prefer. It’s only $24.99 at Amazon and is officially licensed.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Aloha Edition Carrying Case


The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Aloha Edition Carrying Case is a great way to carry around your Nintendo Switch in style! It’s fairly affordable for $24.99 at Amazon, but note that it is not compatible with the Switch Lite.

Unlike most products in this guide, this case is made by Nintendo itself and comes with a screen protector as well.

PowerA Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch Protection Case

For a more playful design, PowerA makes a nice Animal Crossing Protection Case for both Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite. You can find it for $19.99 at Amazon and it’s officially licensed by Nintendo.

Animal Crossing Socks

There are truly endless different sets of Animal Crossing Socks by Controller Gear you can get right now — we’ve only highlighted one possible set above. Find them all around $17-$20 at Amazon. Officially licensed by Nintendo.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Official Companion Guide

The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Official Companion Guide is a beautiful book packed full of tips and information by Future Press at Amazon for $25.

We’d recommend giving this gift to someone who is a newer player, or as more of a collector’s item than informative resource. That’s because it hasn’t been updated with any of new features and content added since March, so this guide isn’t the best resource around.
