Jewelry: Etsy and other online jewelers have many neat designs for earrings, rings, and necklaces with a Zelda theme. Take Arts & Gems Jewelers for example, who excel in nerdy designs. Their Piece of Heart Pendant and Triforce Necklace look stunning and now their Pokemon Trainer rings are for women and men. They do quality work and easy t work with (I should know, my engagement ring came from them).

Games: Know of a game they are craving? Try to locate it and take the plunge into a purchase! And who knows? Hopefully for you, it’s multiplayer! their dream game hasn’t come out yet? Easy! Either pre-order the game for them and gift them the receipt to let them know it’ll come to them or make a personal coupon for them. When the game they are waiting for comes out, have them redeem it and go buy them their game! Why the coupon? Because it lets them know you are thinking about them and intending on purchasing the game for them anyways. Is their online account or eshop empty of funds? Refill them with eshop cards you can find at EB Games, Game Stop, Target, or any store with an electronics department.

Outside of the Box (or inside): Yeah, flowers and chocolate are a bit overdone, but still appreciated. And you can combine them with gifts or events like movies, dinners out, massages, etc.  But sometimes gifts outside of the norm make an amazing statement. For example, if your loved one wants a bit of gaming decor for their office or gaming area, why not gift them with art? Decor8bit and 3D Retro Game Arts on Etsy offer beautiful shadow box cutouts of amazing gaming moments, including come amazing Zelda themed ones. Check these out!
