Easily the best Mario gift
If one of your friends or family members is a genuine Super Mario fan, it is safe to assume that he or she became a Mario fan by actually playing the game. While I used to play Super Mario on my Game Boy, nowadays, the game can be played on Nintendo Switch – the latest and most advanced video game console by Nintendo. In case your friend is a Mario fan and doesn’t have his or her own Nintendo Switch console, he or she is missing out big time! As such, buying your pal a Nintendo Switch is probably the best gift you can ever give him or her.
Depending on your friend’s needs and preferences, you can go with a Nintendo Switch home console or a handheld console.
2. Super Mario Lamp
A unique Mario gift idea
Regardless of whether you are searching for a great Super Mario gift for a child or an adult Super Mario super fan, a Super Mario lamp may be an excellent idea. It will allow the recipient to light up his or her environment whilst decorating it with his or her favorite fictional character. It’s a gift a true Super Mario fan would surely be able to appreciate.
You can choose a classical Super Mario lamp, a 3D night lamp, or an adorable mushroom light.
3. Super Mario Ice Cube Tray
A special Mario gift for the hot summer days
Do you know what would surely cheer any Super Mario fan up? Seeing Mario and Luigi along with their mushrooms, coins, and question blocks swimming in their favorite summer beverage! It may sound weird, but with a Super Mario ice cube tray, it is completely possible! Surprise your friend with an ice cube tray that will make his or her every drink much more fun.
Alternatively, you can opt for a Super Mario glass instead.
4. Super Mario Wireless Controller for Nintendo Switch
A practical Mario-themed gift for a gamer
Your Super Mario fan friend is obviously a gamer and as such, he or she surely needs a wireless controller. In case he or she already has a Nintendo Switch, surprise and impress him or her on his/her birthday or Christmas with an original Super Mario-themed controller. Not only will the present enable them to play their favorite game, but it will also make them smile with the cute Mario design.
Choose a Mario Pop wireless controller or a Mario-themed Nintendo Switch Horipad.
5. Super Mario Video Game
The ideal Super Mario bros gifts
What do you get someone who loves Mario? Well, a Super Mario video game, obviously! If your friend already has a Nintendo Switch, a game is probably the one Super Mario present he or she will be most excited to receive! Just make sure not to buy a game he or she already has. A Super Mario video game is both a great Mario gift for 6-year-olds as well as adults.
Buying your friend a best-selling Super Mario video game, such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe or Super Mario Odyssey will surely put a huge grin on his/her face.
6. Super Mario Wall Art
A decorative Mario gift idea
Super Mario wall art is a wonderful way for a die-hard Super Mario fan to decorate his or her home or room. And when it comes to Mario-themed wall art, there are countless options. You can impress your friend with a Super Mario painting, print, poster, wall decals, tapestry, etc. Opt for the item and the design that will best fit the receiver’s preferences and style.
Any Super Mario fan would certainly love an awesome Super Mario poster print, a set of watercolor prints, or perhaps a set of wall decals.
7. Super Mario T-shirt
A cool gift for Mario lovers
Friends fans dress up in Friends-themed t-shirts, Game of Thrones lovers buy GOT-related clothes, and Super Mario enthusiasts are no different – they want to wear Super Mario shirts, which will communicate their Super Mario allegiance to the world and attract many cool like-minded people. Therefore, you can never disappoint a Mario fan with a Mario tee.
Go with a regular Super Mario, Luigi, and the gang t-shirt or a retro Super Mario tee. A custom Super Mario t-shirt, on the other hand, would make a wonderful personalized Super Mario gift.
8. Super Mario Board Game
A fun Mario gift
Super Mario is a fictional character that provides tons of fun – not only on Nintendo consoles but also in the non-virtual world in the form of countless board games. If you think that your Super Mario fan friend spends too much time playing the video game, maybe it’s time to invite him or her to share his/her passions and interests with the rest of the family or friends in the real world.
Gently invite your friend to join you in the non-virtual world with Super Mario Jenga, Super Mario Labyrinth, Super Mario Monopoly, or a Super Mario balancing game, which makes for a cool Mario toy for 5-year-olds.
9. Super Mario Mug
A motivational Super Mario present
Drinking coffee or tea isn’t half as fun if you drink it from a regular old boring mug. No, no! The cooler the mug, the better the coffee break! To make sure the Super Mario fan in your life always has the best coffee breaks that will energize them and make them feel like they have just had a magical power-boosting mushroom, buy them a cool Super Mario mug.
Judging by the number of available Mario mugs, Super Mario has more fans than the Queen of England, as such, finding a cool Super Mario mug should be super easy! Go with Super Mario Brothers heat-changing ceramic mugs or a unique ‘Level Up’ mushroom mug.

10. Super Mario Cards
A fun Mario brothers gift
In addition to Super Mario-themed board games, there are also several different Super Mario cards available, all of which will surely make any card game way more interesting and fun. Instead of a regular old king, your Super Mario-loving buddy will be happy to see his or her favorite fictional character as the king and surprised to find the rest of the Super Mario gang hidden between the cards as well.
You can either choose the official Nintendo Super Mario standard playing cards or a Super Mario-themed version of UNO, which is a suitable Mario toy for 7-year-olds.
11. Super Mario Building Blocks
A creative Mario-themed gift
If you are looking for a great Super Mario gift for a child (or a man child) who also likes to build blocks, then opting for a cool set of Super Mario building blocks may be the way to go. The building blocks giant, Lego, offers all kinds of Super Mario building kits, which are suitable for all ages and would make any Mario fan really happy.
The Super Mario Starter Course building kit from Lego would make a great Mario toy for 6-year-olds. The Super Mario jungle encounter expansion set, on the other hand, makes for a cool Mario toy for 7-year-olds.
12. Super Mario Soft Toy
A cuddly gift for Mario lovers
There is nothing like hugging the person you love. But if the person you love so much happens to be a fictional character (perhaps it’s Winnie the Pooh, Harry Potter, or Super Mario), you may not be able to hug him or her, but you can surely hug a character-shaped soft toy. Giving your Super Mario fan the opportunity to hug his or her favorite character is something he or she will always cherish and never forget.
When it comes to Super Mario soft toys, it’s also important to opt for age-appropriate ones. This Super Mario plushie makes for a lovely Mario toy for-4 year-olds. Alternatively, you can also opt for a Luigi toy.
