As part of the latest update in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, players will be able to celebrate Christmas with their villagers during the Toy Day event on Dec. 24. Hosted by Jingle the black-nosed reindeer, the festivities include handing out toys your villagers, dressing up as Santa, and item collecting. But as well as spreading lots of virtual holiday joy this year, you can also show your appreciation for fellow Animal Crossing lovers in real life, too. There are plenty of gifts for Animal Crossing fans across the web to choose from, and below I've selected a few of my favourites.

This year has seen Animal Crossing explode in popularity for obvious reasons. During the long, seemingly endless hours spent in quarantine, many people (more than 12 million people to be exact) have decided to channel their energy into building their own virtual island. Animal Crossing has allowed players to get creative, meet friends, and celebrate holidays.

If you have someone in your life who eats, sleeps, and breathes Animal Crossing, what better way to show them you care then with a gift themes around their favourite game? Whether its planters or pillows, official Nintendo merchandise or bespoke handcrafted items made by fans, these Animal Crossing gift ideas will set you on the right track this holiday season.
