The Yellow Nintendo Switch Lite is a great holiday gift for any gamer.

So if you’re looking to brighten up the holiday season with an affordable new gaming platform for yourself or a loved one, look no further than the Yellow Nintendo Switch Lite.

Jordan 1 Retro High OG Lost and Found

If you’re early and extra responsible this holiday season, you may want to grab one of the biggest sneakers of the year ahead of its official release. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Chicago Reimagined Lost and Found doesn’t officially come out until later in November. Thankfully, you can still grab it ahead of time on StockX if that’s your thing. The sneaker features the iconic original Air Jordan 1 Chicago colorway with a worn-in look that gives off a well-aged patina. For sneakerheads, this shoe is an unquestionable must-have for the holidays and you can grab the sneakerhead in your life an early pair on StockX today.

Apple iPad Air 10.9″ 5th Gen Wifi Space Gray

If you’re looking for an easy win this holiday season, StockX is the place to be. Amongst all of the sneakers and gaming consoles available on StockX, there is also a plethora of traditional tech items for below their retail prices, like this Apple iPad Air. This particular Apple iPad Air 10.9″ 5th Gen Wifi (US) features a high-resolution display with options for 64 or 256GB of memory and Apple’s cutting edge M1 Chip. With 10 hours of battery life and Wifi and Bluetooth connectivity options, this iPad is the perfect companion for a long road trip or a day at the airport. If all of that isn’t quite enough for you, this Apple iPad is currently available on StockX for less than half of its original retail price. That’s more than 50% off.

Nike Air Force 1 Low Supreme White

It’s been two and a half years since Supreme and Nike officially debuted their now-popular collaborative Air Force 1. The sneaker, which originally released as a part of their Spring/Summer 2020 season, has since become one of the most wanted shoes on StockX. At first glance, it shares an almost 1-to-1 resemblance to the  traditional white Nike Air Force 1. But the careful eye will spot the small Supreme Box Logo near the back of the sneaker on the outer side of the shoe. This little logo delivers just the slightest bit of nuance to the shoe, something that goes a long way in the world of sneakers, streetwear, and fashion.

Moncler Maya 70th Anniversary Special Edition Short Down Jacket

Over the last seventy years, Moncler has cemented itself as a part of the upper echelon of the luxury outerwear world. This year marks the Italian luxury brand’s 70th anniversary and in honor of this important birthdate, they’ve delivered a special edition of their most popular jacket. The Maya Short Down Jacket is one of their most iconic silhouettes of all time and this 70th Anniversary Special Edition version comes in a forest green color. This revisited design features the jacket’s classic glossy nylon laqué with boudin quilting and a dedicated 70th anniversary logo patch which can be found on the sleeve. If you’re looking to give the gift of a warm and stylish winter, this Moncler Maya 70th Anniversary Special Edition Short Down Jacket will certainly do the trick.

New Balance 993 Joe Freshgoods Performance Art Powder Pink

At this point, New Balance’s long standing collaborative partnership with Joe Freshgoods feels unstoppable. The pair have been delivering excellent sneakers on a consistent basis since early 2020 and most recently, they dropped three new colors of New Balance’s 993 silhouette. Released in Powder Pink, Sage, and Arctic Blue, the three 993 colorways are meant to celebrate Black creativity in its many forms. Officially titled “Performance Art,” this collaboration is centered around the quote “The beauty of art is not all things are indeed to be they are made for. We take it and make it our own.” Additionally, all three colors of the shoe were made available in men’s and women’s sizing, which means you can match up with your significant other if you’d like.

LEGO Batman Batmobile Tumbler Set

LEGO’s Batman Batmobile Tumbler Set is a must-have this holiday season for any true LEGO or Caped Crusader fan. Featuring over 2,000 pieces, this meticulously designed model is intricately detailed to recreate the battle-ready machine that has been featured in countless Batman movies and comics. Alongside the Batmobile, this set also includes two minifigures, one of Batman and the other of The Joker. On top of all of that, this incredibly detailed LEGO set is also available on StockX for below its original retail price, making it a no brainer if you or your loved ones are super into superheroes.

Jordan 2 Retro J Balvin

For those who haven’t been keeping a close eye on the sneaker world, it may surprise you to learn that the Air Jordan 2 has been one of Jordan Brand’s biggest models of the year. The shoe has been subject to several high profile collaborations, including this one with Colombian singer/songwriter J Balvin. The shoes feature a bright blue colorway with puffed-up upper panels and cloud graphics on the heel, insole, and collar. Additionally, the shoes light up on the tongue and feature J Balvin’s iconic smiley face on the back with rainbow colored stitching to finish it off. Light and full of optimism, these shoes will make a great gift for anyone who might have their head in the clouds, in a good way.
