The Gamer's Christmas Wish List

Not sure what gifts to buy for your gaming buddy? We might have some ideas for you.

  • Jordan Aldridge-PayneJordan Aldridge-Payne

Christmas shopping can be difficult for the best of us. Whether you're a gamer yourself, or know one who is difficult to buy presents for, this handy little guide may well point you in the right direction.

Clothing/apparel

Overwatch Christmas T-Shirt

If you're looking for some new threads, this Christmas why not save the world in style with your own Christmas Overwatch t-shirt by J!nx.

Mario Hoodie

Another garment that caught our eye was this striking Mario-themed hoodie from Film Jackets. If the little red plumber is one of your faves, then this big red hoodie is probably worth a looksy.

Destiny 2 Shirt

Whether you're a Hunter, Warlock, or Titan, we can all agree this tee is pretty damn cool, as you can represent your favourite Destiny 2 class with your own shirt by Insert Coin.

Skyrim Christmas Jumper

Tackle the harsh colds of Skyrim in this Skyrim Christmas jumper by Numskull. Because if you're going to wear a Christmas jumper, you may as well wear one that screams "I am the Dragonborn." In fact, that's not the only geek Christmas jumper they do...

Pong Atari Speaker Hat

Connect to your chosen device via Bluetooth to your very own Pong-inspired Atari Speaker Hat. That's right, a speaker hat. Play your favourite songs out the front of your hat and represent a classic gaming franchise at the same time. Who needs headphones? Or friends.

Headsets

Turtle Beach Stealth 600

A PS4 headset we reviewed ourselves (and quite frankly loved) that deserves a spot on this list is the Turtle Beach Stealth 600. We scored the headset a whopping 9, so you can be sure it's worth adding to your Christmas list.

Astro A50 Headset

The wireless beast that is the Astro A50 Headset excels in both design and in quality. Having upwards of 15 hours battery life and 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound, this headset will cater to all your lengthy gaming sessions.

Steelseries Arctis 7

Combining both style and performance, the Steelseries Arctis 7 is a very comfortable and fully-featured headset, perfect for gaming in both comfort and style.

Controllers

Xbox Design Lab Controller

Nothing beats being able to design your very own controller, which is why the insanely cool Xbox Design Lab Controller is worth being on your wishlist. With full control of colours and grip, you can customise your controller how you like, even having the option to inscribe your name.

Razer Wolverine Ultimate

As we reviewed this beast, we're happy to recommend the Razer Wolverine for Christmas. As far as wired controllers go, this is probably the best controller available in terms of performance and feel.

SCUF Gaming Infinity 4PS Pro

For those budding future competitive gamers, there's the SCUF Infinity 4PS Pro. Taking full advantage of military-level grip gives players longer lasting control over their pad, as well as numerous interchangeable parts for customisability.

Merchandise

Loot Crate

If you're not sure what you or the person you're buying for wants, but you have a general area of interest, look no further than Loot Crate. Exclusive merchandise and the thrill of the unknown makes for an ideal gift at Christmas, with a wide range of subscriptions for all tastes.

Sylvanas Statue

From the most successful MMO franchise of all time came a cinematic that drove World of Warcraft fans wild. From that came a more detailed look at Sylvanas Windrunner, which is demonstrated in all its glory with this incredibly detailed statue of the Horde Warchief herself.

Pokémon Monopoly

A modern spin on a classic piece of gaming memorabilia, the new Pokémon Monopoly Kanto Edition game is fun for both young and old players alike. Take control of Pokémon tiles, and bankrupt all your friends in this unique spin on the classic.

Funko POP figures

A Funko POP figure is the perfect gift that covers all levels of difficult to buy for. If there's a special gamer in your life that has all the merch and has all the games, Funko POP figures are your go to, with countless franchises (constantly growing) having POP Figures.

Gaming Accessories

TrackIR

With this nifty piece of tech, you can take control of where your character is looking with just your motions alone. Already supporting a healthy list of games, the TrackIR is no bigger than a standard webcam, and allows a lot more freedom than a VR headset.

Hyper Blaster Vive Tracker

For retro gaming fans, there is the VIVE Tracker Hyper Blaster Set. This set includes a Duck Hunt game, as well as the quintessential Hyper Blaster with VIVE Tracker, taking you back to the golden age of gaming.
