When shopping for gifts for gamers, you’re likely to begin looking at games and gaming accessories like headsets. Adorable plushies are a bit lower on the list, but they can pair nicely with other, more expensive gifts.
You can buy them as stocking stuffers, collectibles, or for the simple enough reason of putting a smile on your gift recipient’s face. How can you not smile while holding an adorable Kirby plush? It’s truly impossible.
To help show you some of the cool options available, we’ve put together a guide featuring some of our favorite video game plushies to give as gifts!
Holiday Gift Guide 2020 | Video Game Plushies

Fangamer has a number of video game plushies, particularly plushies for indie games. If you or your gift recipient is a big Undertale fan, the Undertale plushies from Fangamer are a must.
You can buy them individually or you can buy them as a set for $79 — although it's worth noting that as of the time of this writing, the 3-pack set is sold out.
Additionally, the individual plush for Papyrus is sold out. The beloved Sans is available for $32, there's a Shop Tem plush for $29 on sale, and a Toriel plush that's available for $28.
Curious about the other plushies available at Fangamer? Below, we've listed some other adorable options that you can buy in addition to the plush set for Undertale!

Pokémon are incredibly popular, so much so that you can find a Pokémon plush at most major retailers like Target, Walmart, GameStop, and Amazon to name just a few.
If you're looking to get a special plushie for the Pokémon fan in your life, the Pokémon Center has hundreds of adorable options to choose from. If we had to highlight one, the new Pikachu Pokémon Winter Carnival plush looks absolutely amazing with Pikachu decked out in a winter outfit.
There are other Winter Carnival plush options for other Pokémon available on the Pokémon Center website as well, including a Winter Carnival plush for Pokémon Sword & Shield starters Scorbunny, Sobble, and Grookey. Even better, the Pokémon Center has plushies available for just about every Pokémon you can think of.
If your gift recipient is a huge fan of Wooloo or Cyndaquil, you'll be able to find a plush for them here. To make things a little easier, we've listed some of our favorite plushies from the Pokémon Center below!

We added the Club Mocchi Mocchi plushies to another one of our holiday gift guides for Nintendo fans, but these plushies are so amazing we had to include them in our plushie guide as well.
Club Mocchi Mocchi has a number of Nintendo-related plushies to choose from, but our personal favorite is the 24-inch jumbo Kirby.
Yes, he's very expensive, but we actually purchased one as a gift ourselves and when it arrived we were overjoyed by what we received. He's soft, he's squishy, he's well-made, and most importantly, he's absolutely massive. Not as big of a Kirby fan as we are?
Club Mocchi Mocchi has other equally amazing plushie options to choose from, including the following:

On Amazon, there are a wealth of video game plushies available including an adorable Loot Llama plush from Fortnite decked out in a red, white, and green holiday design. If your gift recipient is a huge Fortnite fan, you should be able to find a number of viable plushie options on Amazon.
Expanding out from there, you can find plushies for almost any video game property in existence from Super Mario to Sonic and everything inbetween. To make the shopping process easier, we've put together a list of video game plush worth taking a closer look at on Amazon!

Last, but certainly not least, we have the adorable Among Us crewmate plushies available from a variety of sellers on Etsy.
One of the listings with the highest ratings and sales comes from Etsy Store USATopDeals which has crewmate plushies in a variety of colors from the highly sus red to the "I was just doing my tasks" yellow.
Other sellers have some amazing Among Us plushies to look at as well, so if you're planning to buy an Among Us plushie (while official merch is still TBD) taking a look at Etsy can be extremely helpful when it comes to crossing things off your holiday shopping list.
Etsy sellers also make plushies for other video game properties, so if you're unable to find a particular plushie at a retailer like Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, or GameStop, you may have some luck digging through the handmade plushies on Etsy.
