On the hunt for the perfect gift for your favorite gaming, streaming, or cosplaying enthusiast? You’ve come to the right place. If anyone has experience with gaming and cosplaying, it’s us, and we know exactly what the gamers and cosplayers in your life would like to receive this year – the same gifts we plan on gifting (and hopefully receiving) this holiday season!
Below, you can find a curated list of gift ideas, including gear, accessories, and merch, that will show your appreciation for your loved one’s hobbies like nothing else would.
High-Quality Gaming Headset: Silence the Outside and Amplify the Action
Any gamer can tell you that half of the gaming experience is pretty much lost if you can’t fully immerse yourself in the sounds and ambiance of the virtual world. This is why a good-quality gaming headset is so important, making it a fantastic gift for any gamer in need of one.
A good headset should have noise-canceling features, a comfy fit for longer gaming sessions, and, above all, great audio quality. If you choose right, you’re guaranteed to upgrade your gamer’s experience big time!
Customized Gaming Controller: Help Them Level Up Their Style
If your friend or loved one uses a controller, why not give them a personalized gaming controller? They’re all the rage right now, so many companies offer custom controllers, allowing you to choose colors, textures, and designs.
This is a great way to show your favorite gamer or streamer you know what they love, plus it’s a fantastic way to add a dash of personality to their gaming gear.
Green Screen: Elevate Their Streaming Game
For the aspiring streamer, a green screen is a must-have. It provides a professional backdrop and eliminates background distractions while allowing for creative outlays. If you want to help the streamer in your life elevate their live streams or video content, this is the gift to get.
Whether your friend is into gameplay commentary or cosplaying a green screen is guaranteed to take their streaming setup to the next level.
Cosplay Crafting Supplies: Unleash Their Creative Side
For the cosplayer in your life, consider some thoughtful crafting supplies. From Worbla and EVA foam to paints and precision tools, these items can help bring your cosplayer loved one’s favorite characters to life.
If you decide to get a nice selection of crafting supplies, don’t forget to throw in a decent storage solution so your giftee can keep everything organized and in one place.
Personalized Photo Book: Immortalize Their Epic Moments
If you want to give your friend or loved one something more personal, consider creating a custom photo book. It’s a perfect way to preserve memorable moments, such as epic gaming achievements, funny streaming bloopers, or cosplay transformations.
To get your custom photo album, compile your favorite moments and head to a photo book service, many of which are online. One of our absolute favorites has to be Mixbook because it has a user-friendly interface, so even if you’re not big on tech, you’ll be able to create a professional-looking album for your loved one with just a few clicks.
Gaming Merchandise Subscription: Continue to Delight Them Months from Now
Looking for an awesome gift that keeps on giving? Get your gaming or cosplaying pal a subscription box filled with the merchandise you think they’d like. They will get a delightful surprise every month, and you can choose a subscription that aligns with their specific interests.
These curated boxes often include exclusive items like collectibles, apparel, gear, and accessories, making them perfect for gamers and nerds (we mean this in the most loving way possible!) in your life.
Gift Cards: For Those Looking for the Foolproof Choice
If you’re not sure about your friend’s preferences or want to give them the freedom to choose for themselves, a gift card to a popular gaming platform, streaming service, or cosplay store is a safe bet.
Sure, this may seem generic, but on the plus side, it ensures they get exactly what they want.
