80 Gaming Gift Ideas

From VR-Ready Gaming Laptops to Gamer-Inspired Streetwear

— November 29, 2016 — Tech
The video game industry is massive, and with such a large industry comes droves of rabid fans who love to play, making gaming gifts a popular option during the holidays. Almost everyone is bound to have at least one person among their friends or family who gets deep into video games. That being said, there are many different types of gamers, and thus there are many different types of gaming gifts.

Hardcore gamers -- those who play the same games that have become e-sports, for example -- are serious about hardware. Gifts for them might include peripherals like gaming mouses or headphone, or, for a truly generous gift, and entire PC gaming system. Other gamers who are more casual might be happy with a thoughtful indie game bought specifically for them, something like 'Hot Lava' or 'Harold Halibut.'
