WHILE buying the latest games is the easiest route to your console-loving friends’ hearts, they’re often up to speed with the latest releases.
So it’s up to you to buy accessories for them, which can be a tricky task if you’re not into games.
Don’t worry because our team of crack gamers have a long wish list that we’re happy to share with you.
Here are the best Christmas gifts for gamers, no matter what console they love.
Best Christmas Gifts for Xbox Fans
Every gamer needs a good controller, and if you’re playing with friends, you’ll want more than one.
The Xbox design lab allows you to design your own controller and the color of each part for the same price as a standard controller.
Samples and extra goodies cost more, but it’s a great way to give your Xbox-loving friend something personal.
OPI nail polish
Did you know that OPI has partnered with Xbox to bring out tints to match Xbox controllers?
If the player in your life wears nail polish, gift them the shade that matches their controller!
There is a special sale going on right now so you can get a set of four mini polishes at a bargain price, or there are still whole bottles available in the range.
Best Christmas gifts for Nintendo fans
Lego Super Mario The Mighty Bowser
This is a huge, intricate Lego set that takes around 10 to 15 hours to build and turns into your very own posable Bowser.
The downside of the model is that we wouldn’t recommend it for children as some parts are quite difficult to build.
This makes a great gift for someone you’re looking for a fun experience with during the holidays.
Known for their wacky clothing, shoes, and accessories, Irregular Choice currently offers a Pokémon collection.
The range includes earrings, bags, clothing and shoes, all with irregular Pokémon designs for both men and women.
While the shoes are quite pricey, some of the smaller accessories are definitely affordable.
The best Christmas gifts for PlayStation fans
Colored console panels
All PS5 consoles come in white, but the fairings are designed to be peeled off and swapped out for a different color.
The range of official colors includes gray camouflage, red, blue, pink, purple and black, with the latter probably being the most popular.
However, if your PlayStation fan already has a colorful controller, you might want to buy them the panels to match.
Charging station for PS5 controller
One of the PS5’s main weaknesses is that the controller’s battery drains very quickly.
This means that many gamers often need to have a controller charged at all times in order to keep playing.
A charging dock not only keeps your controllers charged, but also gives them a handy place to hang them so they don’t get lost.
