New Wii owners typically buy just the essentials and add accessories later on. The fun stuff like games and golf clubs are inexpensive and fun to buy. New Wii owners can even buy some accessories at the local dollar store. So, this Christmas, don’t head out with a cheap shopping list in mind for the new Wii owners in your life – buy them something they really need like these 5 Christmas gifts for new Wii owners.
Charging station -Just one strike away from bowling the perfect game and the batteries on the Wii remote start to fail. The throw goes off to one side and that strike ends up in the gutter.

You don’t have to buy more than one of each to please the new Wii owners with this extra special Christmas gift.
Wii speak ’cause Wii are awesome – As if you don’t get enough of your friends on Wii competition night, why not talk to them every time you sign on to the Wii console? Wii Speak is a cool toy that allows up to friends in up to four locations talk during Wii play. Your Mii even comes out of hiding and mimics your chat from the bottom of the screen. (Mental note – make my Mii taller and thinner before chatting.)
