Canadian gamers can be hard to buy a gift for. There’s a crazy number of choices and just when you think you’ve chosen the perfect thing, you have to try to find it in Canada. As the holidays draw near, it gets even tougher to find the hottest Nintendo Switch accessories in stock.

I’m here to lend my player experience for your shopping trip, so you can grab the best presents for your favourite gamer. My Nintendo Switch reviews will be your guide as you navigate the tricky world of gaming.

5. Preordered Games

Did you know you can preorder Nintendo Switch games in Canada? I’m already in line for Digimon Survive and it won’t be released until December 31, 2020! Preordered games are wonderful gifts for gamers because you can be sure they don’t have it yet. Just preorder it and tuck the receipt into a nice card with a picture of the game. Trust me, they won’t mind waiting.

Still stuck? Ask the recipient for a link to their Amazon Wish List. It makes it easy to order exactly what they want without having to know a thing about what you’re ordering. My mom does it all the time. 🙂

Any questions? Shoot them at me in the comments.
