The Nintendo Switch is a very popular console this year, and it makes for a great gift this holiday season. Obviously the best Nintendo Switch games will be on everyone's wishlist, but there are also some awesome extras that pair wonderfully with the Switch. Here are the best Nintendo Switch accessories to purchase even as the clock is ticking down to the holidays.

Best last-minute Nintendo Switch accessories for the holidays

We're getting closer and closer to the holidays, so you really don't have a lot of time left to purchase gifts. With how popular Animal Crossing has been this year, you really can't go wrong getting someone Animal Crossing amiibo cards (opens in new tab). When scanned in-game they allow players to invite specific villagers to their island. Otherwise, players have to rely on chance and hope their favorite villagers show up. Each card pack is a surprise, so it's fun to see which characters you get when opened.

If the person you're trying to get a gift for is really into open-world games, or competitive titles, then you really ought to get them the Pro Controller (opens in new tab). It definitely feels way better than using the Joy-Cons for an extended period of time, and it's our preferred controller to use with games like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Lastly, we can't recommend the SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless Gaming Headset (opens in new tab) enough for Nintendo Switch. You see the Nintendo Switch doesn't have built-in Bluetooth, so you need a special dongle to make wireless headphones usable. The SteelSeries Arctis is the only wireless headset that comes with its own Bluetooth adapter so players can actually use them cable-free right out of the box.

Nintendo Switch and related accessories always go on sale during Black Friday. This year, we expect to see some really great sales. Check out our Black Friday Nintendo Switch Deals for more information.
