Patches and stickers make for great stocking stuffers or a little something extra to slip in with a gamer's Christmas card. They don't have to be hole-in-the-jeans exclusive either. These dress up a gamer's luggage, backpack, or purse, as well as their work or school lanyards and hats. The many uses for these small items make them a great and versatile gift for the gamer(s) in your life.

Micah Thomas, owner of the FandomCSN shop on Etsy, offers embroidered patches in two sections of his shop. Descriptions under each patch explain exactly how to apply the patches as well. His video game themes include:

  • Fallout
  • Resident Evil

  • Call of Duty
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Legend of Zelda
  • Mario
  • Angry Birds
