I remember when Pokemon took over the nation with its loveable characters and trading card game. My sister in law even named her cat Pikachu because of her love for Pokemon. Later, Pokemon became popular even with adults, through playing Pokemon Go. Pokemon is still a favourite among young and old. I can recall, when I was a preschool teacher, the kids in my class were always fighting over Pokemon toys.
If you know someone who’s a big fan of Pokemon characters or the game, take a look at these gifts to choose the perfect present for them. These Pokemon gifts are geared towards children and those who are just young at heart.

They need a place to put the cards they collect, right? This case has space for 400 cards and zips up for easy transport. There are fifty pages with space for four cards each. You can also get a larger one that holds 720 cards. It has forty pages, but each holds nine cards so the book itself is a larger size. These books can be used for any type of trading cards, not just Pokemon.
Don’t forget to get them a pack of assorted cards to put in the binder.
Of course, if you know someone with a huge collection of cards already, you can get them a carrying case that holds 3000 cards. In addition to the handle, it also comes with an attachable shoulder strap.

In the Pokemon version of this classic game, they will travel through all eight gyms while playing as their favourite character. This will make a fun addition for family game night.
Pokemon Uno is another classic game remade with Pokemon characters on each card. This makes a great travel game since it is small and easily transportable. It can even be played on a train, plane or auto.
Of course, if they don’t already have one, a Pokemon game mat will be useful for setting up the cards for game play. The mat can be rolled up to easily be moved to another location. It is also waterproof, so if someone spills, the mat will be ok. You just have to look out for the cards.

Keyrings make great stocking stuffers due to their small size. This lanyard is great for wearing an ID badge for school or work. It has a break-away clasp for safety.
For kids, get a Pikachu plush keyring to clip onto their backpack. While children don’t usually need a keyring for keys, they do like decorating their backpacks with dangly objects.

Do they need more characters? This set of six Poke Balls has pieces to create six additional figures to play with.
