The worst Secret Santa gifts for your gaming friends

THE time to give is fast approaching, and unless you’re a gaming fanatic, finding gifts for your gaming loved ones can be difficult.

There are mountains of gaming branded goods out there, and not all of them are appreciated.

Please no more Funko Pops.

While there are many great gifts that players will enjoy, there are also many that would make us cringe.

Here’s our list of toys you might want to avoid.

controller mugs

These are commonly sold in supermarkets and on Amazon in a variety of forms, all as hideous as they are impractical.

While gaming harness doesn’t have to be bad, the fact that you have to hold it on a bumpy controller is awkward and uncomfortable.

Best gifts for your gaming family and friends

You may have your friend’s favorite console, but don’t let that fool you.

gaming scents

Unfortunately, these are very much one thing, and something we don’t want to be a part of.

Our consoles smell of grease and burns, which we try to wash off at the end of the day.

From Lynx’s Xbox collab to Nvidia’s bath products that help you smell like a graphics card, we don’t want any part of it.

Neon gamer poster

At some point nobody is sure anymore, it was decided unanimously that gamers just LOVE neon.

Unfortunately, that’s rarely the case, and year after year we still get things adorned in neon with weird gaming buzzwords.

Please don’t do this to us. We don’t need to add anything more to the stack.

Funko Pops

As well as Neon it was also decided that we love Funko Pops and I don’t think this has ever been discussed with us.

There are hundreds of Funko Pops out there and we don’t want any of them. Not even one from our favorite game.

The soulless dead eyes should be enough of a sign that we don’t want these in our homes, but we still keep getting them.

Gaming slogan t shirts

Gaming has some gorgeous clothes. Just check out the lines sold by BlackMilk and Irregular Choice to see some gorgeous designs.

Those cheap t-shirts with random gaming slogans on them not only aren’t funny, they’re never worn.

They all come with slogans that suggest that none of us should go outside, which may be true, but we don’t want to promote it.

The same goes for socks, sweaters, or anything else you can hammer a slogan on.
