12 Gifts of Christmas - Tetris Edition
Tetris Line Clear your holiday shopping list with 12 of the coolest Tetris gifts!
With the holidays right around the corner, it’s time to shop for some Tetris gifts. From stocking stuffers to big items capable of filling up the empty spaces under your tree, there’s no shortage of goodies to choose from at all price points. The only question is, what to buy? Whether you’re shopping for a family member or adding ideas to your own wish list, we’ve got you covered with 12 super cool Tetris gifts!
We know what you’re thinking, isn’t Tetris 99 included with a subscription to Nintendo Switch Online? Yes, it is! If you or your gift recipient lacks a Nintendo Switch Online subscription though, the physical edition of Tetris 99 is the best possible version to buy. Not only does it include 12 months of Nintendo Switch Online, it also comes bundled with the Big Block DLC expansion!
We highly recommend picking up a copy of Tetris Effect if you haven’t done so already. It offers “zen” gameplay and boasts a stellar soundtrack featuring memorable tracks like Connected (Yours Forever), as featured in the game’s reveal trailer. The game also released to PC this year as an Epic Games Store exclusive, though you can always pick up a copy for PlayStation 4 if you prefer.
Games aren’t the only items that make great gifts. In fact, apparel can sometimes be the safest bet when shopping for the Tetris fan that has everything. To show your love of Tetris on your sleeve (or your feet), check out the full PUMA x Tetris collection.
Not only can you stomp your way to success in 2020 with two different PUMA x Tetris shoe options (RS 9.8, RS-X), you can complete your look with a pair of track pants and matching track jacket. Shoe sizes are even available for kids and toddlers, which is perfect if you have little ones who love to match your style!
Speaking of apparel, a new Tetris shirt design hit Pull&Bear this year that – once you see it – you’ll definitely want hanging up in your closet. With both black and white variants to choose from, this eye-catching Tetris shirt is guaranteed to make other Tetris fans jealous. It’s also comfy enough to lounge around in while you relax and play another round of Tetris!
The Tetrimino Light from Paladone will instantly appeal to your nostalgia. Not only can you create your own Tetris display by rearranging the Tetriminos any way you like, you can light up the Matrix and have it serve as a cute little desk ornament!
Nothing screams “stocking stuffer” quite like the Tetris Micro Arcade from Super Impulse. Coming in at about the size of a credit card, the Tetris Micro Arcade will fit comfortably inside even the smallest of stockings… or your wallet. Thanks to its portability, you can take it with you wherever you go! It also has fantastic battery life and charges easily via micro USB, making it perfect for long plane flights and cozy nights by the fireplace.
Going to the arcade isn’t always an option anymore, but you can bring the arcade to you with toys like the Tetris Retro Mini Arcade from Basic Fun! What’s nice about this gift option is how affordable it is. Plus, even if you don’t have time to play Tetris on it as you wrangle your kids during winter break, it makes for a cute desk decoration. You can even set it up next to your Tetrimino Light!
If you’re serious about setting up a functional arcade in your home or know someone who really wants Tetris in an arcade cabinet, the Legends Ultimate Home Arcade is a gift that’s guaranteed to impress. In addition to Tetris, you’ll find other arcade classics like Asteroids, Tron, and Centipede, lending to hours upon hours of retro gaming. It also looks pretty darn cool when it’s all set up and plugged in!
Enjoy Tetris and a library of retro games with the Go Retro! Portable from Retro-Bit. Rather than juggle a collection of cartridges, the Go Retro! Portable boasts hundreds of built-in games from Tetris to Mega Man 2. If you’re a fan of handheld gaming on the go, this device is perfect for you!
In 2019, the Tetris brand celebrated its 35th anniversary, while SEGA also celebrated the 30th anniversary of the SEGA Genesis console. To combine the two, fans of Tetris and the SEGA Genesis may be excited to hear you can experience both in one tiny, convenient package. Yes, the SEGA Genesis Mini includes staples like Sonic the Hedgehog and Street Fighter 2, but it also comes with bonus games including Tetris!
Do you enjoy scribbling down answers to crossword puzzles or Sudoku squares? Have you ever wanted to play Tetris the same way? Look no further than the Tetris Puzzle Book by Dr. Gareth Moore. Over 100 Tetris-related puzzles have been included, each offering a unique brain teaser that’s guaranteed to keep you occupied all winter long!
Looking for an activity you can enjoy with the entire family? Look no further than the 550-piece Tetris Puzzle from Ceaco! It’s colorful, it’s challenging, and it’ll look cool hanging up in a picture frame on your wall once you complete it. While you can certainly work on it alone, the puzzle adds incentive to try and spend more time with your loved ones, which is what the holidays are all about, right?
In conclusion, we hope the 12 gifts included in this list help give you ideas to help make your holiday shopping as painless as possible, though you can always find more Tetris items over on our Instagram!
