When it comes to picking out the perfect gift for the gamer in your life, it can be tricky if you’re not into gaming yourself. There are so many parts to creating the ultimate setup—from the keyboard to the headset to even personalized accessories! That’s why we’ve rounded up the best gifts for gamers this holiday season to help create the ultimate gaming setup.
1) Nanoleaf Shapes – starting from $119.99
If you know someone who’s into gaming you know that a lot of thought and coordination goes into their setup—but one of the most important parts is the ability to customize their battlestation to truly match your space and style.
Nanoleaf Shapes are our modular RGB smart light panels that come in Hexagons, Triangles and Mini Triangles. These light panels allow you to create your own personalized masterpiece and arrange the panels into any design you want like geometric layouts, abstract forms, or your favorite shapes! With over 16 million colors and shades to choose from, you can also light up your setup in your favorite colors, or switch to functional lighting with a wide range of white lighting temperatures as well. You can select preset Scenes in the Nanoleaf App like the PlayStation Chill Scene, create your own dynamic Scenes, or even paint each panel a different color for limitless customization for your space. With our unique Screen Mirror feature, you can transform your gaming sessions by syncing up your lights with the colors on your screen, creating dynamic visuals and real-time reactions across your setup. Screen Mirror allows your games to become more multi-dimensional—completely transforming your gaming experience!
2. Razer Huntsman V2 Gaming Keyboard – starting from $189.99
Having the right gaming keyboard can really make or break your PC setup, but with Razer, you can ensure that you’re always getting the most out of your gaming peripherals.
One of my favorite gaming keyboards is the Razer Huntsman V2 which gives you the choice of Razer Purple Clicky (loud and tactile) or Razer Linear Red (quiet and linear) switches. This gaming keyboard has so much more to offer as well: RGB lighting, fast and responsive feedback, thinner frame and a design that has ‘gamer’ written all over it! The keys are super durable, but sensitive enough that it allows you to adjust the point in which a key press is registered as an input. You’re also able to use the Nanoleaf x Razer Chroma integration, having your Nanoleaf lights sync with this Razer keyboard for an RGB rainbow display running across your entire setup. The integration creates real-time lighting effects reacting to your gameplay and syncs them across all of your devices. There are also preset lighting effects to choose from to completely transform your setup!
3. Corsair HS80 RGB WIRELESS Premium Gaming Headset – starting from $149.99
Another important part of any gaming setup is the headset. From the loudest crashes to the softest whispers, it’s important to hear everything going on in your game!
The Corsair HS80 RGB Wireless Headset is perfect for any gamers looking for something comfortable, yet effective to wear all day, or even for at-home workers who need a reasonably priced, great-sounding headphone and mic combo. This headset is also compatible with PC, Mac, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5—you can even get the benefit of Dolby Atmos surround sound when you download the Dolby Access desktop app for your PC! You can also set up to 5 preset EQ settings for each type of game and switch between them by pressing the volume dial. The audio is powerful enough to make you feel properly immersed in the action but not too loud where you feel like your eardrums are going to burst— you can even hear where noises are happening in relation to you. Whether it’s an explosion or the crunch of the grass beneath your feet, you’ll really feel like you’re in the game!
4. Razer DeathAdder V2 Gaming Mouse – starting from $69.99
Razer is known for its reliable and quality peripherals, and the DeathAdder V2 Gaming Mouse is no exception.
This gaming mouse delivers an excellent tracking experience, no matter how quick or slow your mouse movements are—perfect for fast-paced shooting games and slower, more relaxed games. The design is also ergonomic with a shape that works well with any type of grip. It comes in 4 colors/designs to choose from: Black, Special Edition, Razer x *A Bathing Ape® and Halo Infinite. If you’re looking to create a cleaner desk setup, you have the option to go wireless with this gaming mouse as well. Just like the Razer keyboard, you’re also able to use the Nanoleaf x Razer Chroma integration with this mouse to sync up your setup with your Nanoleaf lights, bringing your game beyond the screen. The Razer DeathAdder V2 Gaming Mouse is sturdy, with a great and comfortable form that makes it perfect for gaming, browsing the web, or even just getting some work done!
5. SecretLab Titan EVO 2022 Series Gaming Chair – starting from $429.00
Your gaming chair makes or breaks your gaming experience—it makes a huge difference between having a fun gaming session and having an aching back.
The SecretLab Titan EVO 2022 is the company’s newest gaming chair that unifies the Titan and Omega lines and is available in three sizes: S, R, and XL. The chair includes built-in back support and a felt-covered memory foam head pillow that uses magnets to attach to the headrest—making the pillow slightly easier to adjust. The armrests even come with padded tops that are also attached magnetically for added comfort! The Titan EVO 2022 is user-friendly and ergonomic, making it the perfect fit for long nights gaming or eight-hour days tapping away for work.
