The gamer’s gift guide

We’ve all got that one mate that disappears for days on end when a new game is released. Heck, I haven’t seen my brother since Red Dead Redemption II came out last month. So what do you get your mate who’s obsessed with games? Speaking from personal experience, there are useful gifts for gamers, and gifts that are about gaming that they probs won’t use ¯_(ツ)_/¯. We asked around our office to make sure this year your gift won’t sit collecting dust on their shelf. Here are our suggestions that might be useful for those gamer mates at different price points.

$10 - $20

Fortnite Battle Pass ~$13

It’s the gift that keep on giving cause there’s heaps of daily loot to unlock.

Pop Vinyls ~ $19.99+

If they’re into collectibles and like displaying ‘em, just find out what their currently playing and you’ve got a gift, my friend.

$20 - $50

KontrolFreek Performance ThumbGrips for PS4 - $29

Available in a bunch of designs and for Xbox One and Nintendo Switch as well.

Insulated Metal Water Bottle - $19.99

Stay hydrated, kids.

$50 - $100

Razer Goliathus Chroma Gaming Mouse Mat for PC - $59.95

Upgrade that plain mousepad with one that lights up to match their victories. This one’s pretty lit 🙊

Pokémon Let’s Go! For Nintendo Switch - $79.95 - Available from the 16th November 2018

It’s the most widely anticipated Pokémon game since the popularity of Pokémon Go and they can relieve their Pokémon Kanto adventures on the Nintendo Switch. The only question is Eevee or Pikachu.


2TB Game Drive for Xbox ~$148.00

Perfect for your mate who always complains that they have to uninstall a game every time they get a new one.

Razer Ornata Chroma Gaming Keyboard for PC - $169.95

This one’s pretty boujee and will probably start some sort of gaming setup obsession (if they haven’t already got one) but there’s lots of hype around the benefits of mechanical membrane keyboards. Look at all the pretty colours.
