Oculus Quest All-in-One VR Gaming Headset – 64GB
Perfect for the early-adopter gamer
This virtual reality system will literally make gaming come to life. The wireless headset is the perfect combination of cutting-edge technology that is also fun and easy for the whole family to try. Plus, no PC is required. Use a smartphone for set-up and you’re good to go. Hundreds of Oculus Quest games are available, including the kid-friendly “Angry Birds,” active dance and sports games and puzzle and strategy games.
HyperX Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset
Perfect for the room-sharing gamer
The lightweight (only 12 oz.) HyperX headset has won awards for comfort and sound, so your gamer roommate can play for hours without pain. (Even those who wore glasses found this one comfy!) This wired headset never has to be charged, so battery life won’t interrupt gameplay. Plus, the HyperX is compatible with a variety of gaming systems, such as PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as any phone or music player with a 3.5mm audio jack.
Razer BlackWidow TE Chroma V2 Gaming Keyboard
Perfect for the uber-competitive gamer
Billed as one of the fastest keyboards on the market, the menacing BlackWidow keyboard is great for super-competitive, tournament-level gamers. Do you know someone who is serious about e-sports or loves watching Twitch? This keyboard is definitely on their wish list. Gamers can even map their own complex keystrokes to customize their board and —bonus —it comes with a detachable, cushy wrist rest.
X Rocker Pro Series H3 Gaming Chair
Perfect for the laidback gamer
Winter is coming, so it’s time to hunker down. Whether your gamer is binge-watching holiday movies or gaming all season long, this chair will be their favorite spot. What makes it so great? Built-in speakers, bass-synced vibrating motors, Wi-Fi compatibility and it comes nearly fully assembled (just add the armrests). If you have more than one gamer in your house, get two chairs and connect them for multi-game mode.
Logitech G703 Lightspeed Gaming Mouse
Perfect for the student gamer
Between school and gaming, they are never away from their desk. Sound like your gamer? Get them a gift that multi-tasks as much as they do. The Logitech Lightspeed wireless mouse is fast, customizable and molds to your hand. Have a gamer who’s been extra good this year? Pair it with the Logitech wireless charging mouse pad for the perfect power-up.
