If you're looking to give the second place item on the latest and greatest list, skip the Wii U and check out the new bundles Nintendo has for this upcoming season.
The Skylanders Giants bundle contains the game, a blue Wii console, matching Wii Remote Plus controller and Nunchuck, a Portal of Power, two Skylanders characters, and an exclusive Giant Skylander, all for $149.99
The other is for Ubisoft's Just Dance 4. In it you'll get a plain ol' white Wii, the Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuck, and the game, for the slightly lower price of $129.99. This bundle can be the gift that keeps on giving with the upcoming "Gangnam Style" DLC.
