Gaming Accessories Gift Guide

/ Nov 22nd, 2017 No Comments

Scuf Microsoft

Holiday shopping can be hard for the gamer who seemingly has everything. To help you find that perfect gift for the gamer in your life (or some ideas to put on your Christmas wish list), we’ve compiled some gaming accessories that every video game enthusiast would love to find sitting under the tree:

Turtle Beach Gaming Headsets

Gaming headsets deliver crisp, high quality sound without the crazy expense of a home theater system. They also allow players to communicate with good-sounding mics and keep the in-home TV volume silent so loud gunshots and explosions don’t disturb loved ones or roommates.

Turtle Beach has a solid range of headsets available at multiple price points. At $150, the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 is near the top of the line. It features impressive sound quality that allows players to hear the quietest in-game footsteps, a comfortable design and, most importantly, wireless functionality. The Stealth 600, which is priced at $100, is a more economical option that is also feature rich.

For those looking for a more affordable option, the Turtle Beach XO Three and Recon 150 still deliver great sound quality and crystal clear voice chat at more entry level prices.

Scuf Custom Controllers

Personalized gifts are so much more meaningful. Why not create a gaming accessory that’s customized to your loved one’s liking?
 

Scuf Gaming Controllers

Customized Scuf Gaming controllers are a surefire hit.

That’s exactly what you can do with Scuf‘s extensive line of controllers. This is unlike purchasing an extra controller at any store. Before you buy it, you can choose your controller type, then customize the buttons, grips and design. You can choose from different colors and textures to really make the controller stand out. Use the recipients favorite colors to create a meaningful design.

Pricing varies based on your controller type and custom features, but you should expect to pay anywhere from $120-$200.

Wireless Router

There’s nothing more annoying than sitting down to play an online multiplayer game only to continually be blown away by opponents due to lag and connectivity issues. Eliminate this pet peeve for the gamer in your life by upgrading his or her wireless router.

Just like headsets, routers range in price based on abilities and features. The TP-Link Archer AC2300 wireless router is a feature-rich device at an affordable cost of around $150. Like the Netgear Nighthawk R7000, the Archer C2300 is not as bulky and ugly as the top-of-the-line models priced at $200 and up, but it delivers great performance in an unassuming build. The company’s Tether app also makes setup and maintenance extremely easy.

The TP-Link Archer C2300 is a great router for most users. However, if you’re giving a gift to someone with a multiple story or bigger home, you may want to upgrade to rangier models like the Asus RT-AC88U or a network of devices such as Google WiFi.

Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries

Yes, unfortunately, many gaming accessories still run on old-fashioned batteries, including controllers. That’s why Energizer Ultimate Lithium Batteries are the perfect stocking stuffer for the tech geek in your life.

The next time that person’s controller runs out of juice in the middle of an important battle, he or she will be extremely thankful that there’s a pack of batteries available to immediately get them back in the game.
