First up we’re sword slashing it old school with a Legend of Zelda 500Gb external hard drive. Though the game itself may be before some gamers’ time, fans of Zelda all recognize the signature blinged-out NES cartridge.
Halo gamers everywhere still mourn the death of Cortana and wonder if she will return in future games. This gift is perfect for the Halo gamer who loves Cortana and game memorabilia but doesn’t instantly burst into tears upon hearing her name.
Some gamers like to customize their cars and some gamers like to customize their characters. This gift is for gamers that fit in the latter category. Anyone who has spent more than a little time in a GTAV in-game clothing store will instantly recognize this made-up brand and wonder when someone will make the grey Yeti shirt with the kind of rainbow logo too???
Creeper notepads are a more practical gift for gamer friends and family who also work office jobs. Though they seem like a basic gift, they are sure to brighten any Minecraft player’s day every time they need to write a quick reminder.
Whether as a pendant or a Key Chain, this stylized Assassin’s Creed logo, aside from being awesome, is artsy enough to blend in with every day wear. This is the perfect gift for AC fans who want to rock their nerd gear without going full cosplay.
For gamers that want to go full cosplay, Etsy is a great place to buy and commission custom cosplay gear. This George Washington Motorized Patriot mask is a great example of what the fantastic artisans of Etsy can do. Cast of fiberglass and resin, this mask is a spot on replica of the creepy mechanized menaces littered throughout Bioshock Infinite and is definitely the coolest potential gift on this list.
