If you’re a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or even friend who has to gift a gamer every Christmas, we are very sorry. We know how hard it can be, because they already have the games, consoles, PC equipment and collectibles they want. They’re gamers, it’s what they do.
However, we here at Geek Decor are gamers too, and we know that there’s always something to get. Even if we already have things like controllers and games, we still tend to upgrade our gear every so often, especially if something stops working. Fun fact – controllers suffer from wear and tear. The more we game, the more worn down they get.
That being said, we’ve collected a few items, ranging from cheap to expensive, that we’re sure every gamer would want!
This SmaAcc Vertical Stand Cooling Fan with Dual Charging Stations for PS4 is ideal for the gamer trying to get rid of clutter. After a while, having a separate charging station gets pretty annoying, actually, so why not combine them? This stand, from personal experience, is a dream. It’s got a fan that cools the system, for those long days and nights of gaming. Once you’re done, just put the controller in its place, next to the console, and forget about it! It makes it look like one whole piece of gaming power. Available for $19.99 from Amazon.
This PlayStation 4 Vertical Stand with 4 Cooling Fans is for the gamer that wants the same as the item above, but with room for 4 controllers, 4 fans, and an extra USB port. It’s convenient, stylish, and useful. Keep your system cool, all while charging your controllers and any extra devices while you’re at it! Available for $29.99 from Amazon.
Let’s not forget the Xbox One, because we’re all eyeballing those holiday bundles, aren’t we? This is the SmaAcc Charging Station with Cooling Fan for Xbox One. Much like the previous items, this station is meant to charge your controllers in style, while cooling down the console. It has room for two controllers, and comes with 4 USB ports. This style is different, however, with the station being perfect for the top of the Xbox One, also eliminating clutter. Available for $24.99 from Amazon.
This is the LEDMO 5050 RGB LED Strip, Waterproof 300LEDs RGB Color Changing Flexible LED Strip Light Lamp Kit Plus 44 Key IR Remote Controller. Hefty name, but simple purpose, this item is basically a strip covered in lights that you control by remote. Gamers love putting these behind their desks, creating a backdrop of colored light for their PC gaming setups. This includes the 44Key RGB IR remote controller, to change colors, brightness and speed automatically. Just plug and play without wiring. The 3M Self-adhesive back tape is meant for any dry and flat surface, and stays in place, for worry free gaming, and awesome light. Available for $15.99 from Amazon.
If your gamer loves to read, then gaming books are in order, like this Witcher 4-Book Series. In case you weren’t aware, the video game series The Witcher, is based on a series of books by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski, and they are must-reads. Get the collection for a grand total of $33.96 from Amazon.
We’ve covered cooling fans, charging stations, lights, and books, so now it’s time to get into the really comfortable, but moderately expensive items. This is the Akracing AK-5015 Nitro Ergonomic Series Racing Style Gaming Office Chair. It’s a desk chair for gamers, so it resembles a sports car seat, with extra padding for comfort. Those long hours of gaming can wreak havoc on your back, but not with this chair! Fully adjustable, this chair is made with an interior metal frame, making it strong and durable, padded for comfort, and then topped off with actual leather. Available for $349.99 from Amazon.
If you want to get in good graces with a gamer, and get a happy reaction when they open your present on Christmas morning, then headsets are the way to go. Even if they have a headset, trust us, they’re looking for better ones. If they love theirs, they’re still going to want an extra pair. Take the SteelSeries H Wireless Gaming Headset with Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound for PC/Mac PS3/4 Xbox 360 and Apple TV, for example. They’re SteelSeries, which is great already, but also, they’re on the high end of headsets. Wireless, comfortable, and compatible with pretty much every device they’d want, they’re sure to love these. They feature a retractable, directional mic on gooseneck with mute light, two hot-swappable Li-Ion battery packs for unlimited play, and the Steel Series next-generation speaker drivers for rich sound and low-frequency punch. More so, because they’re SteelSeries, they will communicate with the SteelSeries line of keyboards, so when your gamer crouches and sneaks in a video game, the keyboard essentially “tells” the headset to intensify sound, for more optimal sneaking and stealing. Muahahahaha! Available for $287.82 from Amazon.
If you’re looking for a headset that is high quality, customizable, comfortable, and sounds great, but don’t want to shell out a ton of money, go for the Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 with 7.1 Surround Sound. They’re perfect for the gamer that wants to alter their voice during parties, and hear absolutely everything in a game like they’re in the game itself. They’re gaming-grade wireless, which means they’re reliable lag-free performance with up to 40 ft. wireless range. They also feature a noise-cancelling boom mic, which reduces background noise and auto mutes when rotated up. From personal experience, these are great, and normally much more expensive, so you might want to grab these before everyone else does. Available for $81.99 from Logitech.
