Photocred to PC gamer!
Happy Holidays, trollmates! I’m sure you’ve all been spending time with friends and family and rejoicing over copious amounts of food! I know I have!
So, as we’re going into the holiday season, the question on all of your minds is probably
“When will he propose already?” “What should I get my gamer for Christmas?” Well, ladies, here I have the answer to your question! Gamer guys are incredibly hard to buy for, but never fear! DomesticMajestic has a list to end your holiday humbugs!
You and I both know that there’s nothing your man loves more than games! (Well, aside from YOU of course!) So why not see what kind of games he’s into (and what games he already has) and buy him one or two. Not only does this show that you’re good with his gamer ways, it also shows that you listen when he tells you about his games, and that you can do your research; Remember, not all games are created equal, so if you’re going to buy your gamer any games, you need to do your research. You can’t just buy him a random game (or, God forbid, a “girlie game”) especially if he’s a well-versed gamer. So, if he likes zombie games, do your research and find out the newest, best zombie games. This can be done with any type of game (first person shooter, RPG, etc). Not sure what kind of game your man likes? Check out this post by NightHawk42 to see the different types of games and to figure it out!
Note: Make SURE your man doesn’t have the game before you buy it! You want the gift to be memorable, not a return!
2. Game Memorabilia
Every guy has a favorite game. Whether it’s Halo, Minecraft, WoW, or anything else, getting him game memorabilia is a great gift! Memorabilia can literally be anything: a shirt, a plushie, a poster, anything! Almost every game has it’s own store online. If it doesn’t though, there’s always places like eBay and Hot Topic that sell game memorabilia, especially tee shirts, which are always an amazing gift! As a matter of fact, my boyfriend’s Christmas present comes from this category! (I won’t tell you what it is though because he’ll probably read this!) This category is especially good for ladies who don’t wanna spend a lot of money on a gift! Sales are your friend ladies, and this category is the one that’ll have some great deals! He’ll probably love whatever you get him, and there’s not a lot of guesswork so long as you know what game he likes. Plus, Hot Tpic is actually having a 20% off sale right now! Here’s the link to their gamer stuff: http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/PopCulture/Gamer.jsp
3. GameFly Membership
If your guy gets tired of games easily, or loves a TON of different games, this if a great gift! Basically, you can pay for a certain amount of time, and that gives your guy a membership to GameFly. It’s a lot like Netflix, but for video games! Here’s some information about it straight from the site:
“For one flat monthly fee of $22.95 (plus any applicable tax), GameFly lets you rent 2 games at a time, with free shipping, no due dates, no late fees, and Unlimited PC Play. Or, for $15.95 a month (plus any applicable tax), you can rent one game at a time. There are no additional charges.”
Although it is a little bit of a price commitment, if you know your guy is giving you a gorgeous expensive present, this might be the way to go. Not only will he really appreciate it, but it’ll keep him occupied during the Christmas season!
I gave my boyfriend headphones as a gift once before, and he really enjoyed them! There are so many great brands of headphones that aren’t super expensive. I got my boyfriend SkullCandy Hesh headphones last year, and he uses them all the time now! They were only about 30 bucks, but they’re something that he gets a ton of use out of! He listens to music with them and he uses them for when he plays games on his laptop. Headphones are always a great gift because every guy can use them. This is an especially good gift if your man likes to play video games with other people. In that case, a headset or headphones with a mic can be an awesome, decently inexpensive gift that he’ll love!
5. DVD Box Set
Maybe you wanna get your man something that’s not game related this Christmas. Well ladies, if that’s true, a DVD box set is the way to go! Most guys so are into nerd culture have at least one TV show they love, be it Dr. Who, Fringe, Lost, or any other show he likes. A few of my personal favorites that your guy might like:
30 Rock. This is like my favorite show, and it’s something you could watch with him!
Always Sunny in Philadelphia. This show is hilarious, especially if your man is the sarcastic cynic like mine.
Fringe. This show is great for guys who like science fiction.
MarbleHornets. While this isn’t a television show, you can buy the boxed set of all the videos on their website. I mean, it’s Slenderman!
The Walking Dead. Zombies. ‘Nuff said.
Alright ladies, there you have it! A list of 5 great gifts that your gamer guy will love! Happy holidays, trollmates, and stay tuned!
