The Gamer Gift Guides: Find the Right Gift For Your Gamer

Whether you're looking for yourself or someone else, we've collected some great gift ideas for gamers of all types.

In some ways, we gamers are easy to shop for. We have a set list of games, genres, or platforms we play and it's easy to pick the best titles from among those. But beyond actual games, there's a world of great stuff for gamers: books, soundtracks, gear, and more.

Whether you want to surprise and delight your favorite gamer, introduce family and friends to your hobby, deck your halls with swag, or fill up that new tablet or console with hidden gems, following is our gift (guide) to you this holiday season:

Get In On the Guides!

Surely you've got your favorite niche, so why not share that passion with the world? Help others get into your favorite games, gear, or whatnot and we'd be happy to feature it in our growing list here.

What makes a good gift guide? Include these things and you're set:

  • A theme: Maybe your theme is "I like these things", and that'd be okay. The more coherent your theme, the easier it is for your reader to grasp and go along with you. (Summing up your theme in your intro or first slide helps as well.)
  • The name of each item: How can I search for it or ask about it at a store?
  • Images or video of each item: What does it look like? What can I do with it?
  • A short description: Why'd you include this in your list? What makes it stand out from other things like it?
  • Where can I buy it? Because why bother recommending something if you don't share where to get it?

Once your guide is done, link it in the comments and we'll add it to the list!
