60 Gift Ideas for the Gamer

From Goo-Shaped Controllers to Chromatic PC Keyboards

— December 24, 2017 — Tech
These gift ideas for the gamer include a range of video games, computers and computer accessories, ergonomic seating units, gamer-specific headphones and speakers, and even apparel and footwear that allows avid players to celebrate their fandom.

One unique gift that's perfect for gamers who are very specific about the kind of technology they buy is the Pokeball cocktail glass that was created by Jakobsen. The glass has a spherical shape to it with a flat base that allows it to rest on a flat surface when the user isn't holding it. On the side of the glass is a circular opening that gives space to pour and mix drinks, which can then be consumed through a straw.
