Console

1. Best Overall Console: Play Station 5

Play Station 5

If you want to impress a gamer, get them a PlayStation. Sony's latest machine boasts a brand-new design. It has a great library of exclusive games and updated PS4 classics for you to enjoy.

The PS5 includes a lightning-fast SSD that drastically reduces loading times, making games look and feel smoother. For us, the deciding factor between getting a PS5 or an Xbox One is the games, and so far, the PS5 has the upper hand in this regard.

As a bonus, developers like Naughty Dog and Insomniac are working on future projects that will be released to the public.

2. Best Microsoft Gaming Console: Xbox Series X

Xbox Series X

Xbox is for gamers who want to try out as many new games as possible while maintaining the highest level of visual fidelity.

The Xbox Series X is a technological titan. The console is powerful enough to produce stunning graphics, with up to eight times the graphical performance of the Xbox One, as well as twice the capability of the Xbox One X.

We were also impressed by its 16GB of GDDR6 RAM, variable refresh rate, variable rate shading technology, and low-latency mode for an improved game response. This next-gen console is guaranteed to impress players once actual next-gen titles are available.

3. Best Nintendo Console: Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch

The Switch is a hybrid device that, like the PS5 and Xbox Series X, can be plugged into a TV and used as a handheld. Although the Switch can't play all the latest 4K, 120 FPS games coming out for next-gen consoles, it does have enough power to play Doom at a smooth 30 FPS anywhere, which is more than enough for many gamers.

The Switch is a great place to play modern classics like The Witcher 3, L.A. Noire, and Dark Souls Remastered, as well as newer games like Control. If you already have a PlayStation or Xbox, the Nintendo Switch is an excellent addition to your gaming system.

We commend it on how it can do things that Sony and Microsoft cannot, and it has a lot of great games that are likely to never come out on their systems.

4. Best Retro Game Console: Super Nes Classic

Super Nes Classic

This is a great gift for Super Nintendo fans, old and new. With the SNES Old Edition, you can play all of your favorite classic Super Nintendo games as you remember them from retro gaming—along with a CRT filter that mimics the appearance of your old television.

We liked the SNES Classic's save-state feature makes playing old Nintendo games significantly less frustrating than it was 25 years ago. When you're ready to get together with friends and play some of your favorite old-school games, like Super Mario Kart and Street Fighter II Turbo, this console lets you let you compete for bragging rights.

5. Best For Those Who Misses Arcade: Evercade Vs Premium Pack

Evercade Vs Premium Pack

If your recipient is a fan of classic arcade games, you're sure to find an Evercade console a fun addition to their home. It can connect to your HDTV through an HDMI cable and include game cartridges with dozens of arcade games such as BurgerTime, Double Dragon II, Wizard Fire, and Bad Dudes Vs. DragonNinja.

It's small enough to fit in your entertainment cabinet without taking up too much space, and it comes with two controllers so you can play along!

Gaming Hardware

6. Best Gaming TV: Hisense ULED Premium 55U7G QLED Series

Hisense ULED Premium 55U7G QLED Series

Why not brighten someone's holiday with a big TV from you? The Hisense H8 series offers solid picture quality with above-average contrast and vivid colors.

"Game Mode Pro" allows you to enjoy 4K HDR gaming at a high variable refresh rate and low latency, resulting in wonderfully lifelike pictures that will increase your immersion in games. We love the option of customizing the television's screen size to either 55,65 or 75 inches.

7. Best Gaming Laptop: ROG Zephyrus G15 Ultra Slim Gaming Laptop

ROG Zephyrus G15 Ultra Slim Gaming Laptop

If you are the lavish gift-giving kind, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 would be a great gift choice. You can not buy a better gaming laptop for the price. It has the powerful AMD eight-core Ryazen processor, the cutting-edge Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 graphics processors, a humongous 16GB of RAM, and a lightning-fast 1TB SSD.

This gaming laptop has superb visuals, lightning-fast processing, and a vivid, fully-immersive 15.6-inch, 1080p screen that plays games effortlessly. The main drawback is that it does not have a webcam, but we are sure your favorite gamer will use it for gaming and not making Zoom calls.

8. Best Gaming Chair: Razer Enki Gaming Chair

Razer Enki Gaming Chair

Consider purchasing this Razer Enki gaming chair to improve your gamer's battle station. You will feel well-supported thanks to the wide seat and backrest. We like how it is made for all-day comfort, with a mix of plush, textured fabric and synthetic leather.

The Razer Enki comes with built-in lumbar support, which is not adjustable but provides much-needed ergonomic support for the user's back. At $400, it falls squarely between high-end and cheap gaming chairs.

9. Best Gaming Keyboards: HyperX Alloy Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

HyperX Alloy Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

This HyperX Alloy Origins gaming keyboard won't break the bank and will delight gamers who have yet to invest in an excellent gaming keyboard. The HyperX Alloy Origins has linear switches that are extremely responsive and need very little force to function.

It offers superb build quality and full RGB backlighting, which is ideal for dark-area gaming. While you can reprogram every key on this keyboard, it doesn't have specialized macro keys for MMO games.

We prefer the HyperX Alloy Origins Core for its tenkeyless design, which allows for mouse placement closer to the body and reduces strain on your back, neck, and shoulders. The keyboard has dedicated media buttons, including volume and mic mute keys.

10. Best Audio Gear: JBL Bar 2.1 Deep Bass Soundbar

JBL Bar 2.1 Deep Bass Soundbar

Gamers who prefer playing video games on their televisions and want to hear rich, immersive sound without wearing a headset would appreciate an affordable speaker upgrade.

The best soundbar is the JBL Bar 2.1 Deep Bass, which costs less than $400 and is often much less. It sounds better than you would expect from a 2.1-channel system, with clearer voices and deeper bass than any other sub-$400 model we have tried. Even though it is only a 2.1-channel system, it makes amazing music that wraps around you and sounds surprisingly like surround sound.

In addition, the remote only allows for the subwoofer volume adjustment, which strikes the right balance between control and ease of use.

11. Best Webcam For Streamers: Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920

Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920

If your gamer buddy is frequently on Zoom calls with coworkers or has a Twitch channel, they'll love this Logitech C920 Webcam.

Most Twitch streamers believe the Logitech C920 to be the greatest all-around camera for streaming. It is inexpensive, dependable, and provides the highest image quality for the buck. Although the C920 lacks some of the extras found on the C922, we are confident that you will still receive a superb camera.

We liked how it meets all key aspects while providing excellent video quality at 1080p. What distinguishes Logitech's C920 is its ability to broadcast 1080p video at 30 frames per second with no framerate reduction.

12. Best For Multiplayer Games: Playstation DualSense Wireless Controller

Playstation DualSense Wireless Controller

If you are lucky enough to own a PlayStation 5, we suggest getting an extra DualSense controller. You'll feel games in a whole new way thanks to DualSense technology's ability to provide greater haptic feedback than any other controller on the market.

Its customizable triggers allow you to experience changing amounts of force and tension as you press them down in your game environments. For example, you can feel the controller fighting back when you draw a bow or pull on a string in your game.

13. Best For Smartphones Gamer: Razer Kishi Mobile Game Controller

Razer Kishi Mobile Game Controller

The Razer Kishi converts your smartphone into a gaming controller like a more powerful Nintendo Switch. The Kishi is a great gift for someone who loves to game on the go.

The Razer Kishi is an excellent alternative for a quality, portable, mobile-only controller. Some will miss the ability to plug in their wired headphones, but headphone jacks are becoming increasingly rare on new phones, and Bluetooth appears to be the way forward.

14. Best Gaming Mouse: Razer DeathAdder V2 Gaming Mouse

Razer DeathAdder V2 Gaming Mouse

Give the Razer Death Adder mouse to a gamer as a gift if you have friends or family who are passionate about eSports and PC gaming.

The Razer DeathAdder V2 gaming mouse is an amazing first-person shooter mouse. It has onboard memory, so you can save your personalization settings to the mouse, which is useful if you wish to use it on a Mac since the Synapse 3 program is incompatible with macOS.

We loved how this mouse features a very wide and configurable CPI range and an extremely low click latency. It is well-suited for palm gripping and comfortable for most hand sizes, but claw or fingertip grip might be uncomfortable for individuals with small hands.

15. Best Gaming Headset: SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless Gaming Headset

SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless Gaming Headset

We recommend the Nova Pro because it has two swappable batteries, a base station with a long wireless range, and the ability to combine numerous audio sources. Its retractable microphone provides higher quality than most microphones on the market.

Yes, this headset is expensive, but it sounds fantastic and works with every system on the market. And it is as soft as a cloud. What more could a gamer want?

16. Best Tool For Streamers: Elgato Stream Deck - Live Controller

Elgato Stream Deck - Live Controller

The Stream Deck is a fun and useful tool for gamers that gives them complete control over their online streams. You can choose between models with 15 or 32 configurable buttons.

You can set each button to perform anything, such as launch media, modify audio, enable a transition, open an app, or switch on lights. Users can also apply custom icons to the buttons so they do not get mixed up.

If you stream regularly, manage a chat, and utilize any or all of the streaming tools in these accessories, then the Stream Deck is a helpful tool.

17. Best Bose Frames: Bose Frames - Audio Sunglasses with Open Ear Headphones

Bose Frames - Audio Sunglasses with Open Ear Headphones

These sunglasses are more than just a fashion statement. They include built-in technology that allows you to stream music, listen to podcasts, and even make phone conversations without putting anything in your ears.

The Bose Frames are a nice set of sunglasses that also function as a personal audio system. The Frames come in two unique styles, Alto and Rondo. We liked that the sunglasses could play music for up to 3.5 hours between battery charges.

This is the perfect gift for your gamer friends who take their games everywhere.

18. Best Powerbank: Anker Portable Charger PowerCore 20100mAh

Anker Portable Charger PowerCore 20100mAh

According to Kris Silvey, the author of Elevated Coffee Brew, "If you know a mobile gamer, you know how important it is to keep their battery charged. Nothing ruins a game faster than a dead battery—whether they are playing on their phone, tablet, or even Nintendo Switch. A battery power bank is the best gift for a mobile gamer."

He recommends the Anker PowerCore 20,100mAh power bank. It has a bit more style than the other options and still has a huge 20,100mAh battery, so you can recharge it multiple times without any trouble. It does not use Qualcomm's QuickCharge technology, but it still charges quickly with devices that support PowerIQ or VoltageBoost. It may get a little warm while you use it, though.

19. Best For Racer Gamers: Logitech G920 Driving Force Racing Wheel

Logitech G920 Driving Force Racing Wheel

"I enjoy racing games, and the only way to do it is with a true steering wheel and pedals," says Chris Kowalski, Content and Marketing Director at Autopadre. "You can feel the curves as you turn into them and accelerate quickly on the straights. My current steering wheel is the Logitech G920 Driving Force Racing Wheel."

The Logitech G920 is a top-of-the-line racing wheel worth its price tag. The pedals take some getting used to, with the brake pedal being hard to find an appropriate setting for, but there is little else to complain about. It works well with various racing games, has some fantastic force feedback that genuinely helps your racing style, and feels like you are holding a premium piece of equipment.

Subscriptions

20. Best For Xbox and Pc Players: Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: 3 Month Membership

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: 3 Month Membership

Forget trying to guess what the gamer in your life wants—give them an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate: 3 Month Membership! This membership allows players to play games on a console or PC and also gives them discounts on certain titles.

This year has been great for Game Pass, with many new games joining the service since August, including Psychonauts 2, Hades, Back 4 Blood, Forza Horizon 5, and Halo Infinite. Game Pass Ultimate also includes an EA Play subscription, allowing customers to stream over 100 titles to their Android phones or tablets.

If your gift recipient has an existing subscription, they can add the presented months to their existing account.

21. Best For Playstation Players: 3 Months Playstation Membership

3 Months Playstation Membership

PlayStation Plus is a mainstay for any PlayStation gamer, granting access to online gameplay across all games on the platform. This is essential for multiplayer titles like Destiny 2, Fortnite, and Call of Duty: Warzone.

PlayStation Plus members get two free games monthly, and certain games in the digital shop receive an additional discount. Your gift recipient can combine your gift with a current subscription, or you can give them a one, three or 12-month subscription.

22. Best For Retro Gamers: Nintendo Switch Online 12-Month Individual Membership

Nintendo Switch Online 12-Month Individual Membership

Nintendo Switch Online is a subscription-based service that lets you play multiplayer games on the Nintendo Switch. It costs $19 for a single individual account or $35 for 8 accounts, which is great if you know other people who own a Switch.

Unlike other programs that charge monthly, this one is a one-time purchase and includes online play, access to a slew of free NES and SNES games, and Pac-Man 99. You can also take advantage of cloud saves if you play on numerous Switches.

The Expansion Pack, an additional tier added in 2021, is not worth purchasing unless you are a strong Switch player or a fan of old games. It includes DLC packs for Animal Crossing, Splatoon 2, and Mario Kart 8, which would ordinarily cost roughly $25 each, as well as a slew of Sega Genesis and N64 games.

23. Best For Cloud Gamers: Nvidia GeForce Now

Nvidia GeForce Now

GeForce Now allows you to play games you've previously purchased instead of requiring you to acquire a specific edition of the game or stream games from a limited subscription library like Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or the Sony PlayStation Plus Premium.

It also works on Android, Windows, and Mac OS devices, as well as Chromebooks, iPhones, and iPads, via an app or a web browser. The service costs $10 per month and includes a version that supports 1080p resolution at up to 60 frames per second. A premium tier costs $20 per month and enables 4K resolutions at up to 120fps. A free tier is a terrific way to get started, but it only allows you to play for one hour at a time.

24. Best For Amateur Players: Apple Arcade

Apple Arcade

This makes an excellent gift if your recipient is a new or casual player. Apple Arcade has built a refined service with something for every type of player.

Apple Arcade is a new gaming service that lets players enjoy hundreds of games without commercials or in-app purchases across all iOS devices for just $5 per month. New games are added every week as updates to classic games. All Apple Arcade games can be downloaded and played offline.

The service remains a viable option for those looking for family-friendly activities. Still, Apple Arcade added social, multiplayer, and classic and well-known games previously available in the App Store.

25. Best For Gamers Who Have Everything: Steam Gift Card

Steam Gift Card

If they have a gaming PC or laptop, you can offer them a high-quality gaming headset, keyboard, and mouse. But if they already have these items, you may just provide them with a game on their wishlist via Steam.

Recommended by Quickscope Media Founder Nick Mullay, a Steam Gift Card is a great choice for the gamer in your life because it allows them to choose any game they like from the Steam Store.

Storage

26. Best Game Space For Nintendo Switch: SanDisk 128GB microSDXC

SanDisk 128GB microSDXC

When you download games on the Nintendo Switch, the built-in 32 GB storage fills up quickly. Some individual games take up even more space than the internal capacity.

The Switch player in your life may need to save a lot of games at once, making the 128 GB SanDisk microSDXC Card a nice gift, even though it is not the flashiest of the accessories we recommend.

It saves and loads games quickly and is one of the most affordable cards on the market. If you're feeling generous, SanDisk sells a 256 GB version with twice the storage.

27. Best For External Storage: SAMSUNG T7 Shield

Samsung T7 Shield

If you need extra storage for your Xbox, PlayStation, or PC, we recommend the Samsung T7. It is a new portable NVMe SSD that's the size of a credit card and far more durable than previous models.

The Samsung T7 Shield is also compatible with game consoles. This is the answer if you're looking for the easiest way to expand your storage. It's typically used to keep games for benchmarking laptops and PCs. Loading Horizon Zero Dawn from an SSD.

Display

28. Best Backlight: Luminoodle TV Backlight

Luminoodle TV Backlight

This LED light strip has a 3M adhesive backing to attach to the back of your HDTV or monitor. It features 15 color selections, 10 brightness levels, and glare-free lighting that reduces eye strain without adding glare to your screen.

This LED strip will illuminate your gamer's battle station with a rainbow of colors and will complement their RGB keyboard, mouse, and mousepad nicely. It is available in three lengths to accommodate various screen sizes, and a reversible USB plug powers it.

29. Best Game Prints Decor: Vintage Video Games Console Controller Patent Prints

Vintage Video Games Console Controller Patent Prints

These prints of four patents show the inventive spirit behind everyone's favorite old-school video games. The prints will make a great addition to any game room.

The prints are printed on Fuji Crystal Archive paper, which will last a long time. Unfortunately, frames are not included; however, because the prints are 8 x 10 inches, you may purchase frames at most department or craft stores.

30. Best Xbox Light: Paladone Xbox Logo Light

Paladone Xbox Logo Light

This sphere-shaped Xbox logo light is a replica of the one that lights up on the controller. It's even bigger than the original. Let this sign brighten your room while you play your favorite video game. This well-known gaming sign, with a white sphere and a black x, is guaranteed to please fans.

It stands 8 inches tall and looks great in a game area. Three AAA batteries or the provided USB cable are needed to power the light. It has a detachable base as well as wall-mounting tools.

31. Best Accessories Holder: Numskull Official Destiny Gaming Locker

Numskull Official Destiny Gaming Locker

A coffee table can quickly get cluttered with snacks, drinks, gaming cases, charging cords, controllers, and headsets. This gaming locker helps to remove the mess and precisely organize everything. It has seven different themes to complement your console, game, or movie.

We like how this vertical game locker can accommodate up to ten of your favorite Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, or Blu-ray movies. The game locker's top comes with a secure headphone holder that allows you to store your gaming headset when unused. We enjoy how it can hang up to four gaming controllers on the locker's side.

32. Best Powerup Wall Decor: Game LED Neon Light Sign for Game Room Decor

Game LED Neon Light Sign for Game Room Decor

The Super Mushroom from Super Mario makes a great gift for gamers because everyone enjoys a Mario game. Maybe folks who make Mario fall through holes and run into Goombas all the time don't like it as much!

This cool 12-inch tall, dimming mushroom sign was inspired by the mushroom NPC in the game. It's ideal for your gaming setup and makes a charming but cool wall ornament. When you turn off the lights during the day, it looks great as a wall decoration.

Related: The Best LED Ice Buckets

33. Best Desk Light: Paladone Playstation Icons Light

Paladone Playstation Icons Light

Sony has produced PlayStation controllers with an X as the primary button for nearly three decades, but a tweet from the Playstation UK account indicates that it should be referred to as the "cross" button. We agree with the 165,000-plus others who name it the X button.

This cool light will look great on any gamer's desk. It can even react to music and game audio, allowing it to interact with your games. We loved its three separate light modes, which included conventional illumination and unique effect color phasing.

We recommend it as a superb gift for gamers and fans of the popular games console. It makes an excellent stocking stuffer or birthday present.

34. Best Comfy Gaming Chair: BIRDROCK HOME Adjustable Memory Foam Floor Chair

BIRDROCK HOME Adjustable Memory Foam Floor Chair

The BirdRock gaming seat blends in with your furniture, but it's also more comfortable and supportive for floor gaming than other options. We liked how this comfy floor cushion is made of high-quality chopped memory foam and soft plush fabric. The memory foam molds to your body, providing you with a comfortable seat.

When sitting on the floor, this provides back support. The floor can also be readily adjusted into 14 configurations, allowing you to lie the chair flat to nap, relax to watch your favorite movie, or use it at 90 degrees to play games.

35. Best For Lazy PC Gamers: CYCON Couch Gaming Lapboard

CYCON Couch Gaming Lapboard

Gamers who prefer to play video games in the comfort of their living room rather than bent over their desk will love this gaming lapboard. The desk contains a USB 3.0 hub that lets you plug in and route your mouse, keyboard, and headset cables.

You can store the mouse, remote controllers, and drinks in two side pockets. It also has Velcro to keep your keyboard from slipping around all over the place.

36. Best For Tetris Player: Tower Tree Stackable Night Light

Tower Tree Stackable Night Light

Tetris provides endless hours of addicting and hard gameplay that is just as amazing today as it was three decades ago. Consider getting your loved one this stackable LED desk light to appreciate the game even more.

We liked how you can easily assemble the magic block into interlocking LED modules. You can make your decorative lights by assembling them into different patterns.

LucBuy Game Console Case

The gamer in your life will love this Game Boy-inspired case. It looks just like the classic handheld gaming system but has functional buttons and a screen for playing video games.

40. Best For Lego Fan: LEGO Ideas Sonic The Hedgehog

LEGO Ideas Sonic The Hedgehog

This highly designed Lego construction is based on the first level of Sonic the Hedgehog, everyone's favorite Sega Genesis game. The giftee will be surprised by a box reminiscent of the game's original packaging from the 1990s as soon as they unwrap it.

The attention to detail does not stop there; the front cover for the instruction manual features the same welcome screen as the original Sonic game. These clever nods will surely put a grin on any gamer's face. The build comprises approximately 1,200 parts, making it ideal for adults.

Although it won't let them escape from a dull work meeting and warp into a chilly underground cave, it will help them get through the day with nearly two cups of coffee.

43. Best For SNES Fan: Super Nes-Super Famicom A Visual

Super Nes-Super Famicom A Visual

For the gamer in your life, Funko Pop vinyl figures are available for popular titles like Contra (published in 1987).

45. Best For Tabletop Gamer: DNDND Ancient Copper Metal Dice

DNDND Ancient Copper Metal Dice

Who says "gamer" only refers to people who play video games? Consider giving this large 100-sided die to a pal who enjoys tabletop games like Catan and Dungeons & Dragons.

It comes in various beautiful colors, feels sturdy, and is supported by a money-back guarantee. We think it would make an excellent gift stuffer!

46. Best For Collector: Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros

Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros

Nintendo's Game & Watch portable shows that sometimes less is more. It had a design influenced by the Japanese Famicom console, leading to the Game Boy.

Nintendo's Game Boy is a small, durable handheld video game console. The device has a brilliant backlit LCD screen and comes pre-loaded with three games: Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, and Ball.

Best Gifts for Gamers Buying Guide

The world of gaming is broad, which means that gamers have different preferences. Here are some factors to help you find the right gift that will suit your gamer loved one’s interests.

Type of Gamer

Consider the type of gamer and the platform on which they play. "If you have a grandson who enjoys video games but knows nothing about them, do not buy imitation controllers just because they seem great. It is better to face the person, or if they are children, question their parents, and ask them what console they play on." Kyle Keersemaker, the founder of GamingFYI, explains.

Hardcore gamers might prefer to buy game hardware, while others might give gift cards or accessories themed after their favorite game or console brand. Kids may appreciate merchandise such as t-shirts, mugs, and other toys related to their favorite games.

Gaming Setup

Another factor to consider is the type of gaming setup they have. Arvie Narido, a gift researcher of Gift Rabbit, says, "It may be a PC/gaming laptop setup, a gaming phone, or a Playstation/Xbox console. You must consider their game setup because it will be useless if you use a gaming phone and someone offers you a gaming keyboard or mouse, but you do not have a PC or console."

You should also consider how many friends they are playing with. If they have a group of friends who come over to play Xbox or Playstation, you may offer them extra controllers or games with multiplayer modes.

Be Familiar With the Specs

It is important to be knowledgeable about the products. A gaming display is much more than that. You must understand resolution, response times, and refresh rates. If you offer someone something they already have, make sure you find an upgrade for it. For a better gaming experience, specifications are quite vital.

Budget

Accessories for video games can be pricey, so look for something that fits your budget.

"Games can be costly, so evaluate how much they are willing to spend on a game. You could want to get them a less-priced game if they are casual gamers. If they are serious players, they may be prepared to spend more." Midss.org co-founder and marketing manager Jennie Miller recommended.
