Nintendo Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments revealed for 2020 holiday season

It was only two years ago that I learned the Hallmark Store had video game themed ornaments. Not just any gaming ornaments, though. Official Nintendo ones! Before you go telling me it's a little too early to think about Christmas and the holidays, 1) we're living through a pandemic, so let me have a little joy in something silly and 2) more importantly, these ornaments are sometimes sold in limited quantities so it's easy to miss out if you aren't paying attention.


Keep reading below for links, descriptions and release dates. (And then start setting aside a few bucks here and there so future you will be thankful!)

Yes, Keepsake ornaments are pricey, especially once you begin buying multiple ornaments. But they're great quality and I don't think you'll be disappointed. If you have a Hallmark Store near you, you should be able to check them out in person.
