It's almost that time of year, when everyone is merry, bright, and decking the halls with boughs of holly. Whether we like it or not, it's creeping up fast. Buying cards for this festive time, meanwhile, can often be a little bit dull, but GamerPrint has something to offer gamers for the upcoming holiday season.

The gaming enthusiast's site has designed a set of original Christmas cards inspired by some of the most famous video game characters of all time, such as Mario (Super Mario Bros.), Pikachu (Pokémon), and Snake (Metal Gear Solid). Imagine the smile on your loved one's face as he/she receives one of these cards, or their disappointment if you don't get them a game to go with it.

At £8 for a set of 10, this could be worth a look if the designs grab your attention; you can check out the site at the link below to see all ten variations. So, are you tempted?
