Are you shopping for the gamer in your life? Gaming accessories can turn a good gaming experience into an extraordinary one, amplifying the immersion from lighting to sound, comfort to visual aesthetics.
We’ve found some of the best gaming accessories that the internet has to offer to elevate your gameplay and senses to new heights. And if you’re buying a gift on a budget, there are lots of benefits to buying used games and accessories.
There’s pretty much a Funko Pop for everything. It doesn’t matter if you’re into Marvel or The Muppets, if you have a favourite character, chances are there’s a Funko for it. Funkos are relatively cheap unless you’re after an obscure character or a limited edition. The most expensive Funko Pop sold for $120,000, but don’t worry, you’re usually looking at no more than £15 - £20 for the common collectables.
One of the best things about the Nintendo Switch is that you can play literally anywhere. To take it anywhere though you’re going to want to find a case that will keep it safe. Nintendo Switch Cases range from £15 - £25 and come in a variety of designs including Animal Crossing and Pokémon. Not only will a case protect your Nintendo Switch when travelling but it also gives the option to carry extra games and small accessories.
For immersive gaming, headsets are something that can completely change the game. Prices range from £20 - £200 depending on what it is that you’re looking for. For more casual gamers, headsets like the Corsair HS55 Headset offers lightweight comfort and easily accessible controls for a quick gaming session. If you’re looking for something more advanced, the Razer BlackShark V2 is a must-have in the streaming and e-sports community. It features noise cancellation and a high-end audio performance, perfect for when you want to get your head in the game.
Unless you love playing in the dark, lighting can add a whole new element to your gaming experience. Govee is a company that specialises in smart lights and has a huge array of gaming lights to level up your gaming. From hex panels you can control from your phone to glare-free LED light strips, wherever you need a splash of colour in your gaming corner, they’ve got you covered.
Depending on how immersed you like to be as a gamer, it’s easy to lose track of time and forget about the real world. Etsy has some creative and personalised gaming-themed phone holders so you can keep track of what’s going on while you game.
For gamers who are on the go, they might like something that allows them to play their favourite Xbox games on their phone.
