How to catch gifts hanging from balloons in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?

While strolling through Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you have surely already seen gifts hanging from balloons, moving across the sky. If you haven't played the previous games, you certainly don't know how to get the gift!

The solution to catch these gifts is very simple: just blow up the balloon. For this, a very practical tool exists: it is the Slingshot ! Unlike the other tools, you won't be able to craft this one at the DIY Workbench. You will therefore have to buy it in the Nook shop, held by Méli and Mélo. This is not available from the start of the game, but you can unlock it later, once Méli has provided you with the site kit from the shop!

Once in possession of a slingshot, you just have to place yourself under the ball, press A to aim and release the key to throw the stone! If you aimed well, the gift will fall and you can pick it up. You can repeat as many times as you want, until the ball is out of reach!
