100 Gift Ideas for the Gamer

From Transformative Gamer Cups to Tablet Game Controllers

— November 29, 2014 — Tech
Other than actually buying a video game for the gamer in your life, these Christmas gift ideas cover home decor, apparel and tech accessories that will make gameplay even more enjoyable.

Products that take after iconic characters like Sonic, Zelda and Super Mario are always being reintroduced with a retro twist. Some of the forms can even be pretty surprising, such as soaps that are crafted to look just like cartridges for retro gaming consoles.

If you're really want to take games to the next level, but you're not able to get your hands on something as hot as an Oculus Rift this year, Google Cardboard and the Dodocase VR Toolkit are two options that will keep gamers both busy and happy this holiday season.
