5 Best Gamer Gifts That Aren't Games

1 of 5

With Black Friday just three weeks away, the holiday shopping season is almost upon us. Some people already have everything planned. You know exactly what to get your mom, your sister and your best friend; you already had those planned out for almost a year now.

But what to get for your other really good friend? Well, you know that they're a gamer, just like you, but you want to give them something different. Sure, it would be simple to get them a game that they said they've wanted, but no, you want to get them a gamer gift that they'll love that isn't just a game.

Well, you're in luck! There are a lot of different things you can buy a gamer that isn't a game, but still pertains to games. In order to make things easier for you, I'll list what I think are the top 5 best gamer gifts that aren't games.

For starters: Toys

Whether it be an action figure/model of their favorite character or an adorable plushie, there are tons of gamer toys out there. One thing I know I would love to receive as a gift are these playing cards based on The Legend of Zelda by Fangamer.

They feature prominent characters and symbols from the series and are produced by the US Playing Card Company, the same company that makes Bicycle playing cards, so you know they're legit. They are available for $15 USD and they come in your choice of red or blue.

    Anything by Megan Lara (Tumblr: http://meganlara.tumblr.com/). There's merch of her artwork everywhere from prints to posters to t-shirts and stickers. I adore her stuff and I think a lot of other people would too!

    Wow, those prints are pretty awesome! A lot of them remind me of old-time movie posters. The Willow one though looks so much like Alyson Hannigan it's crazy.
