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.
