Gift buying should feel like fun rather than a chore, but if you’re not in the loop when it comes to what gamers want then it can be difficult knowing what to choose. Headphones, gaming chairs, and the latest titles can seem like obvious choices, but when it comes to narrowing down which brand to buy, non-gamers can come unstuck. Thankfully, we’ve been in touch with experts in the field to find out exactly what gifts will bring the gamer in your life the most joy.
Sega Genesis Mini
There’s been a huge resurgence in retro games lately, and what console embodies the essence of retro better than a Sega Genesis? For many gamers, this will have been their first console and, to our delight, Sega has released a mini version that’s the perfect size for gifting. This console is identical to the original in both shape and style, and is guaranteed to evoke instant nostalgia in anyone who devoted far too many hours of their life to running around with Sonic the Hedgehog. Owing to the console’s tiny size, you won’t be able to play the original discs in it, but it comes preloaded with fifty famous titles including Earthworm Jim 2, which is reason enough for us to add it to the basket immediately.
If you’ve got a poker pro in your circle of friends then it can be tricky to know what to get them. A pack of cards can seem a little cheap, but a set of beautiful chips for using at home games is much more thoughtful and could last them forever. This guide to the best poker chips has some great suggestions including personalized ceramic chips. The personalization option is brilliant for gifting; you could design them for your very own casino, or simply embellish them with your friend’s name. Choosing ceramic chips is wise because they’re long-lasting, chip resistant, and are the first choice at the biggest tournaments like the World Series of Poker.
If the gamer in your life loves handheld consoles or smartphone gaming more than anything else, then a personalized console or phone case makes a heartfelt gift. The possibilities are endless with this idea, as there are manufacturers that can print cases with your own images on them. As well as this, you can find cases that are styled like classic games consoles, including the original GameBoy Color, perfect for retro fans. Better still, if you’ve got a Pokémon fan in your life then there’s a super cool Pokédex-style console case with slots that will store up to six game cards. Clumsy gamers who are always dropping their Nintendo Switch or losing their cards will love its foam backing that will keep everything safe and secure.
Epic Gaming Chair
If you work from home then you’ve probably treated yourself to the most comfortable desk chair on the planet. Every time you have to work from the dining table, or the office, you’re reminded of the superior comfort of your own desk chair. For gamers, a comfortable gaming chair feels just the same. If the gamer in your life hasn’t treated themselves to a gaming chair, then a fancy one would make a brilliant present. If you’re confident in your chair-choosing abilities then pick one out for them; otherwise, make an afternoon of it and go chair shopping together.
