Nintendo T-Shirt
\n

Price: $17.88
Buy it on: Redbubble

\n

This is by far my personal favorite item for this list. The design is so vivid, and the comic book style creates a sense of movement within the image. It is a wonderful shirt with key Nintendo characters gracing its design. 

\n

The artwork is beautiful, and it will take you right back to those days when you were a kid trying to figure out what to do in Zelda. It's a brilliant way to bring classic games back into your life, especially with the recent additions to the Zelda, Mario and Pokemon series.

Buy it on: Etsy

\n

This retro and elegant poster will have any gamer's heart skip a beat when they open this up. The design is simplistic, but it has incredibly authentic and iconic Sonic imagery that make for an essential gift. This one's not just for those who are Sonic fans, but for gamers across the board. 

\n

The poster comes in a variety of sizes, and the price depends on what one you go for. It doesn't come in the frame, but the beauty of the image means you could frame it or just simply hang it above your bed.

Gamer Mug
\n

Price: $9.01
Buy it on: Etsy

\n

It doesn't matter what game you're playing and for how long, sooner or later you're going to need to drink something. So, why not have a gaming-themed mug to match all the other collectibles you have dotted around. The design is incredibly simple but well made, with a lot of components and colors, but they don't seem invasive. 

\n

This is a perfect gift if you're not sure what games someone is into, or if you don't know their size for clothing merchandise. You can always be sure that a mug is a safe bet when looking for a gaming present.

PUBG Helmet & Pan
\n

Price: $12.95+
Buy it on: Etsy

\n

PUBG has become massive: With an insane amount of gamers frequenting the servers every day, it is an unprecedented success. With this success ultimately come merchandise and cool knick-knacks to dot throughout your home. 

\n

The creator has purposely designed the helmet and pan to look worn, as if they had been bought directly from inside the game. They are small items, and the helmet is not wearable, but they are an amazing collectible set to be able to put on your desk or on a shelf next to all your other gaming merchandise.

Gamer Socks
\n

Price: $11.89
Buy it on: Etsy

\n

Have you ever been in a really intense match or that moment in the story where everything is coming together? Then suddenly someone tries to have a conversation with you, and it's enraging? I'm sure it's happened to every gamer at some point, and when you're concentrating, it can be hard to relay your message to someone else.

\n

These socks are a perfect way to tell someone that you're gaming and want to be left in peace. That is, assuming you don't need to move your legs too high. They're super cute and comfortable -- also, if you're over at someone's house, they will be dying to try and read the message as you walk through their home.

Armada Designs: Video Game Merchandise for Gamers with Old-Lady Hobbies https://www.gameskinny.com/gumx7/armada-designs-video-game-merchandise-for-gamers-with-old-lady-hobbies https://www.gameskinny.com/gumx7/armada-designs-video-game-merchandise-for-gamers-with-old-lady-hobbies Wed, 18 Oct 2017 16:47:02 -0400 bazookajo94

Merchandise for videos games used to be non-existent, but with the gaming industry morphing into a multi-billion dollar industry, contemporary consumers have an easier time finding cool shirts and cute figmas without having to traverse the underbellies of the internet to find them.

Still, most of the merch costs the Macklemorian “Fifty dollars for a T-shirt,” or the designs grow stale after they've been slapped on every item in every store. Some overcome the herculean hurdle by making their own video-game inspired items, while others accept the fate of three overused shirts with different variations of Link saying, “Call me Zelda one more time.”

But not all video-game inspired merch needs to be laminated or emblazoned. Some of it can come from hobbies older than video games themselves. For those who like to or are fans of cross-stitching or latch-hooking, video game merchandise isn't (really) widely available. They have to rely on their own creativity to design something -- or they can check out Armada Designs.

Armada Designs started in 2002 on Etsy and has since expanded to a proprietary website. The company even had a panel at Salt Lake City’s 2017 ComiCon. 
 


Customers can buy cross-stitch kits that include everything needed for any of the projects the store provides -- even the needle and hoop. But the best part is most projects and items from the shop are video game-related. From classic Pokemon to Dragonball Z to Final Fantasy sprites, Armada Designs appeases cross-stitcher enthusiasts so they no longer have to stare despairingly at a piece of blank grid paper in hopes that if they just believe hard enough, the vision in their head will appear on the page.

Though there aren’t a lot of Pokemon to choose from -- not even 150 -- most of the classics are present (Haunter, anyone? Dratini? You’re gonna make me say it -- Pikachu?), and the shop mentioned at ComiCon that whatever they didn’t have, they’d be happy to design upon request, although they did say that may take a while. 

Most of their designs range from $6 to $11, with their biggest projects costing around $30, but considering they ship everything needed with the package except a pair of scissors, that's a decent price for the solid 4+ hours of stitching. That's not to mention the awesome video-game inspired piece you'll have on your hands when you're done. 

So sure, maybe cross-stitch isn’t as practiced among the younger generation as the older -- but one day, that younger generation will grow up, and instead of spending hours playing video games, they are going to spend hours wishing they could be stitching those video games.

And Armada Designs will have probably reached 802 Pokemon by then…right?

Rather than digging into the far past with buried bones of extinct creatures, these dice go the opposite route and give you something to roll from the very stars above! No joke, these are made from a meteorite discovered in the 50's.

Available in d6s and d20s of different sizes, they will set you back a pretty penny, but to literally roll something that was previously hurtling through space when playing Alternity or Traveller? That would be quite the experience.

Tabletop gamers know the struggle is real: spending hours finding the perfect set of dice down at the local game store is practically a rite of passage. They don't just have to look great, they also have to roll great!

Beyond even the interesting color combos you can find at the average brick and mortar retailer, there are some truly bizarre and amazing dice sets out there if you know where to look. Some will absolutely break your bank, but others are more affordable and make perfect gifts for the gamer in your life.

Pricey? Yes. Worth it? Without a doubt. FigurePrints works with Blizzard to ensure that they can create an extremely accurate model of any player's World of Warcraft character through their 3D printing techniques. Sure, there are other World of Warcraft models out there of iconic characters like The Lich King or Grom Hellscream, but, as cool as they are, anyone could have those. This is an opportunity to give your Warcraft player something unique and absolutely memorable.

\n

The price tag is intimidating, but to have a model of your character sitting across from you while you play is awesome. No sane Warcraft player wouldn't be thrilled to have this.

This might be Hearthstone themed, but since Hearthstone is really just a collection of Warcraft characters with some artistic flair added to them, this is a great set to consider. Even if your Warcraft fan isn't too much into alcohol, everyone drinks something, right? It's a great general gift that doubles as a convenience and an excellent display item.

In World of Warcraft, time costs money. Every month is another $15 out of the account owner's wallet. Soften the blow a little with one of these pre-paid game cards, which buys a full two months in Azeroth.

World of Warcraft: Legion pre-order

World of Warcraft's newest expansion pack isn't due until sometime next year, but that doesn't mean pre-ordering isn't without its perks. Not only will it give your Warcraft player peace of mind to know that the expansion is paid for, but anyone who pre-orders automatically receives a free character boost to 100. Take it from someone who has leveled more than a couple characters up to that point, that boost is a massive time-saver.
