Christmas is a time for giving, and there is no better way to show your friends and family just how much you care by giving them the ultimate gift this year. If you have any avid gamers in your family, this Christmas will go by like a breeze, because today we have a whole host of ideas for you to buy for the gamer in your life this year.
When it comes to gaming, there are always lots of extra gadgets and accessories which can be used to make a gamer’s experience the best it can possibly be. Here are a couple of options for the types of gadgets you could buy for someone in your family who is into gaming.
If you know a gamer who likes to play online with other people from around the world, a great idea for a gift would be a wireless headset. It is pretty simple to find a good headset for gaming but you can look online at the best wireless Xbox One headset guide to give you some guidance and make sure that you get the best one that you can.
One of the things you might not immediately think of buying a gamer is a new controller for their console. Although all consoles come with a controller or two, you can often find really awesome ones online which will either be a limited edition design or will provide extra comfort for the player during long sessions. This will be a gift they can use every day so it is definitely worth the investment!
One of the things you may not be aware of unless you are a gamer is the fact that console storage can cost a lot of money. Most consoles will come with around 250GB of storage built in, but when you are playing games which are 40GB each it can fill up pretty fast. You can buy SSD hard drive storage for consoles and this can be a lifesaver for your gamer friends!
Games For Christmas
We couldn’t really go through a list of gifts for gamers without at least mentioning a few of the new games which will be on offer this Christmas. Games are quite expensive these days though so make sure to watch out for any deals which come up before the festive period. Here are a few of the games you could get for the gamer in your life this year.
Spyro Reignited Trilogy
This is a trilogy which A LOT of people have been waiting for over the last few years. This cult classic is up there with the best and you can finally play through the original Spyro Trilogy in glorious HD. Fun fact: this has taken so long for developers to make because the original game files were lost so they had to literally rebuild the ENTIRE game step by step. It’s guaranteed to be a winner and it is the ideal gift because it gives you 3 games in 1!
If you know a friend or family member who likes games which revolve around survival and wit, Fallout 76 is the ideal choice for them this Christmas. The latest in the Fallout series, this game revolves around what happens to the world in the future after a nuclear disaster, but this time you also have online features allowing you to play and interact with people all over the world. These games are always notoriously huge so your recipient will definitely get their worth out of it!
Just Cause 4
The Just Cause series is a pioneer in the open world arena and it basically allows the player to do whatever they want at whatever time they want. Instead of the game pushing them through mission with no breaks, the player can simply choose to drive, fly, swim or walk around and get to levels when they are ready to. It certainly makes things a lot easier for gamers.
If you fancy getting something a little bit different for the gamer in your life or they already have most of the things on this list: here are some extra fun ideas to make their gaming experience the best it can be each day.
A Bean Bag
Honestly, this might not sound like a super exciting gift idea but a beanbag can be an amazing gift for gamers this Christmas. Sometimes sitting on the sofa for long periods while gaming can be uncomfortable, and a beanbag will allow for that effective gamer slouch which adds so much more comfort to the experience. You can find bean bags pretty much anywhere and they even make ones with inbuilt speakers to make the gaming experience even more epic!
What can you add to the experience of a gamer who already has it all? FOOD. Everyone loves food and a snack hamper could be the ideal addition for their gaming experience this Christmas. The best sort of snacks to bring into this hamper will be ones that won’t make too much mess, so stuff like popcorn, nuts, crisps and crackers can be the ideal candidates.
A Mini Fridge
Is it a little bit crazy? Yes. Is it also totally awesome? Absolutely! If you want to make a gamer’s life the most luxury it can possibly be when they sit down for a session, a mini fridge can be the ideal gift. This one is especially helpful for online gamers as they aren’t able to pause their games to get up and grab a beer. Having a mini fridge right by their seat means that they can stay hydrated and happy for hours and hours.
There are a whole myriad of gifts you can buy for the gamers in your life, and as you can see it doesn’t have to be limited to whatever the latest games are on the market. Have some fun this year and find some great options for our friend or family member for Christmas.
