Pro Controller

The Joy-Cons that come with every Nintendo Switch are fine, but when playing traditional games, they're not as comfortable to use as a standard controller. That's where the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller comes in. With its traditional D-pad and curves designed to fit your hands, it's the perfect accessory for most games.

Carrying Case

One of the best things about the Switch is its portability. But you shouldn't just toss it in a bag, because it's likely to take a beating. Instead, put it in this snug case that will protect it from the inevitable bumps and drops.

Screen Protector

Screens are fragile things, especially on devices like the Switch, which is designed to be taken on the go. To avoid cracks and scratches, slap a screen protector on your Switch, and watch your worries melt away.

Additional Dock

If someone on your gift list would like to play their Switch on more than one TV, giving them an extra dock will make it a cinch.
