If you follow me on Twitter, you might recognize this prize pack as identical to the AMAZING holiday package I posted recently. Incredible, isn't it? My family has had a total blast with all of these gifts! I've been using the Super Mario Christmas Mug daily for my coffees and teas—it totally brightens up drink time. My family also hung the huge Super Mario stocking and we've filled it with goodies for the holidays. And, of course, we put the oh-so-cute Hallmark SNES ornament on the Christmas tree and it looks wonderful! Best of luck to everyone who enters the contests—what a stellar prize pack!

Here's a look at all the goodies that come with this prize pack (minus the Nintendo Switch—that unit's mine, sorry!):



My Favourite Way to Play Nintendo Switch Over the Holidays

My family loves playing on our Nintendo Switch, whether that's challenging each other to Super Mario Kart 8 Deluxe races, playing co-op Kirby and the Forgotten Land or cheering each other on during intense online Splatoon matchups. We're so thrilled the holidays are soon here as the entire fam is on vacation, which means lots more time to play games on our Switch! This holiday we've decided our main game is going to be Nintendo Switch Sports since we love challenging each other to bowling matches, soccer shoot-offs, chambara duels and more! We'll be playing lots of Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon 3 as well, two family favourites. And shh, don't tell the others, but I'll be sneaking in plenty of Bayonetta 3 and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 as the night winds down. I wish the holidays were every day!

Many thanks to Nintendo of Canada for making this giveaway possible! (Please note: Nintendo is not a sponsor, co-sponsor or administrator of this contest.)
