Gamers come in all shapes and sizes and ages, so finding the perfect gift for them can be harder than you initially thought. Especially when you are looking for something other than an actual game or Blu-Ray. Don’t fret, there are lots of things you can get, you just need to analyse the person first and work out what would suit them. You’ll find some great ideas for them in this article, just remember to find something in your budget and find out whether the recipient already owns it or not. You don’t want to get them something they have already got.

Funky Furniture

If they own and use a gaming room you can buy some retro gaming furniture for them. This can be simple things and furnishings such as pictures or posters or gaming themed chairs and tables. You need to make sure they have the space for something bulky before actually purchasing it or they are going to be put into an awkward situation. You can find some furniture over at surface tension.


Virtual reality has come ahead in leaps and bounds over the last year. The sets can be expensive, so you may want to team up with someone else to get them a great gift unless you are buying a special gift for a loved one. They can cost a fair amount and if you are buying one for a console you may need to purchase additionals like the playstation camera or motion control sticks. If they are a PC gamer then the oculus rift is even more expensive but you don’t need as much additional add ons. Buying VR can be a great way to get a gamer into something new and different which they will wholly appreciate.


If they are kind to play subscription games like online MMORPG games such as world of warcraft then a subscription can help them play for longer without having to worry about paying. It can really help them get the most out of a game and they’ll appreciate it if they play it often. On the other hand, if you don’t know what kind of subscription to get them consider getting them a gift card for a gaming site where they can purchase a subscription themselves. There are also game streaming services like PS now which you could purchase for a month or two and give to the recipient. They can play some classics whenever they want and even through their laptop.


You can also purchase gaming accessories which will make gaming more fun and accessible for the game. Thumbstick covers are a good idea, they sit on top of the sticks and stop the rubber getting worn down while them better control. Headsets are also great, as they can talk to their friends whilst still listening to what’s going on with the game. The stock ones that come with consoles aren’t too comfortable either, so getting a better one can improve the gamer’s experience.
