Hoping to get your kiddos Christmas shopping done early? Good idea: we've seen tons of gifts for kids on sale as of late, but nothing comes close to the deals we found on the Nintendo Switch Lite Mario+Rabbids bundle (was $300, now $270) and PS5 Assassins Creed bundle (was $850, now $750). Whether they're on your mini-me's wishlist or not, you can't go wrong since they're two of the hottest video games to buy this holiday season. In other words, you'll want to act fast to scoop them up before everyone else finds out about this Nintendo Switch Lite sale and PS5 deal that has you and your gamer's name written all over them.

Here's everything you need to know about the video games that are bound to sell out sooner than later.

  • What's Included: Nintendo Switch Lite console, AC adapter, TPU case, EVA case, wired headphones, four thumb grips, glass screen protector, guide stickers, wipes, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle game

If they love Mario, it'll be easy to add this bundle to your cart for as low as $270. But if this will be their first video game console, here's what makes it a no-brainer purchase: For starters, it offers all the games that the larger console offers (Animal Crossing, Pokemon Violet, you name it) but in a compact, portable size they can travel with. So whether they're going to a sleepover or headed on a road trip, they'll never be without their favorite games. Basically, they'll go bonkers when they unwrap this on Christmas Day, and you won't even need to buy anything separately since it comes with everything you need to get started ASAP.

  • What Included: PlayStation 5 disc console, power cord, HDMI cable, USB-C-to-USB-A cable (and stand), Assassins Creed Mirage, Immortal Fenyx Rising, Rainbow Six Extraction, wired headset, dual charging dock, silicone sleeve, voucher

Are they more of a Play Station player? This bundle featuring the latest generation will certainly wow them since it reportedly has faster loading times and 8K support to make everything on the screen look extra vibrant as if they're immersed in the game themselves. Better yet, the DualSense wireless controller vibrates so they can feel the game at their fingertips. In other words, don't be surprised if they ditch Christmas activities this year to play with this baby boy that comes with everything they need and then some. And at $100 off, it'll be the best money spent come holiday time.
