Buying a video game-themed gift is one of the most original and creative ways to make the gamer in your life feel special.
Buying a video game isn’t enough anymore because anyone could do that.
You need to be creative.
How to find the perfect present for a gamer
Contemporary video games became so realistic and interesting that everybody’s a gamer now. We all have that one favorite game we always go to, and we all know a person that simply doesn’t want to stop gaming.
But, how do we pick just the right gift and avoid getting just another video game.
First, you have to take age into consideration. We divided our text with respect to the age group of our gamers. Of course, this is highly variable, but there are some general guidelines.
We also divided each age group into subgroups, based on the video game genre.
Some people love First-Person Shooters, others can’t get enough of their favorite Role-Playing Games, etc.
Here’s what we came up with:
Gifts for 5-14 year old gamers
Today, kids start playing video games quite early, even before they turn 4. Although we don’t think this is a good practice, we’ll still help you find creative game related gifts for your kids that will actually steer their attention away from the screen of their smartphone.
Let’s start of with the most popular category we came across:
Fortnite Battle Royale Collection Battle Bus & 2 Exclusive Figures: Funk Ops & Burnout (Link)
The Fortnite bus is this game’s trademark. Something memorable that all young gamers will love.
Mattel Minecraft Transforming Sword & Pickaxe [Link]
A lot of kids nowadays play Minecraft which is why this may be a perfect gift for your gamer. There is also another Minecraft-themed toy you can buy- Enchanted Bow and Arrow, Ender Dragon, etc. The choice is yours.
LEGO Minecraft The Mountain Cave 21137 Building Kit (2863 Piece) [Link]
Okay, this is an extremely expensive gift (starting at $394), and you will probably have to assemble it yourself as it’s so complicated, but it is worth it. Besides, LEGO and Minecraft are perhaps one of the most intuitive and natural combinations ever.
LEGO DC Super Heroes Speed Force Freeze Pursuit 76098 Building Kit (271 Piece) [Link]
LEGO DC Supervillains is another video game that’s extremely popular among the younger audience, and buying this small building kit is a sure way to show that you know what children like.
Gifts for gamers older than 14
As kids get older, the change their video-game preferences. Single play, role-playing video games become more and more interesting, as they have good stories and characters.
Playing video games stops being just another way to socialize, and it becomes a real passion. This is why you’ll have to be even more careful when buying a gift for your adolescent gamer or your work colleague that just loves playing Fortnite.
Here are the best gamer gifts available right now:
