Caring for unopened switch until Christmas

I just bought an original Switch new for my son for Christmas (I thought the time was right with the OLED switch just announced).

I'm a bit worried about it being in the box for the next 5+ months, plus however long it since it was manufactured.

I know virtually nothing about the Switch but I assume it has some sort of battery which may degrade after so long a period.

Would you recommend I do anything with the Switch between now and Christmas to ensure it's in tip top condition when it is finally opened on Christmas morning?
