The games industry keeps getting bigger and bigger. As of 2017, the industry is worth an astonishing $108.9 billion.
But gaming isn’t just a hobby, it’s a way of life. So when it comes time to get your favorite Player 1 a gift, you’ll want to get them something they’re going to love.
Feeling stumped? Level up your gift-giving with these awesome gift ideas for gamers.
PC gamers take their gaming experiences seriously. And why shouldn’t they when every click counts?
In Starcraft II, for instance, players rank speed based on actions per minute, or APM. It isn’t uncommon for top-ranking players to hit 100 APM. The faster you click and move your mouse, the better your performance.
The problem is, most mousepads don’t provide enough surface area to make some of those far-reaching moves.
SteelSeries QCK mousepad is the perfect solution. This massive mousepad is big enough that it’ll take up the majority of your favorite gamers’ desk.
Plus, the microfiber material is designed for both accuracy and comfort, so they can keep their win streak going for longer.
The great thing about many of today’s games is that they’re free. Well, sort of.
Games like Fortnite and Apex Legends are free downloads but offer premium in-game purchases to unlock certain items. Treat your favorite gamer to an in-game shopping spree!
Find out what game they’ve been playing, head to your favorite store, and snag some in-game currency. It’s an awesome, quick gift that shows that you pay attention to their interests.
Digital currencies are only the beginning, however. Digital sales now take up a whopping 74% of the game sales market.
Thanks to storefronts like Steam, the PlayStation Network, Nintendo’s eShop, and the Xbox Live Marketplace, gamers can snag and download their favorite game from the comfort of their home.
You can even skip the trip to the store and purchase many of these gift cards directly through the storefronts themselves.
Remember how you always wanted your own personal arcade as a kid? Thanks to Arcade 1UP’s awesome new arcade cabinet line, that’s totally possible!
Choose from arcade favorites like “Asteroids,” “Centipede,” “Pac-Man,” “Mortal Kombat” and more. Most 1UP cabinets even come with multiple games, so you can get the most bang for your buck.
Best of all, you won’t have to remortgage your house to be able to afford them. Each cabinet retails for $200 to $500.
As if that wasn’t cool enough, the cabinets themselves are around four to five ft tall and a little under two ft wide, so they won’t take up too much space.
Sure, playing an action-packed game is fun. But living it? That’s another experience altogether.
Escape rooms bring your favorite video games and movies to life, whether you’ve dreamt of playing James Bond or you’ve always wanted to explore a spooky mansion.
Companies like Breakout Games create immersive encounters that force your favorite gamer to bring their digital skills to the real world. Crack cases, look for clues and beat the clock.
Think you and your favorite gamer have what it takes to escape?
To borrow from The Legend of Zelda: It’s dangerous to gift alone, take these gift ideas for gamers with you!
From arcade cabinets to top of the line mousepads to unforgettable escape room experiences, your favorite gamer is going to love these gifts.
