Christmas is right around the corner and you’re probably already wondering what gifts to get for your gamer dad. Luckily for you, there’s plenty of options for gaming-related gifts—both retro and modern—that are reasonably priced and will be sure to make it a Christmas to remember for you and your dad. Below is a list of some of our favorites.
Plantronics RIG500 Pro series
If there’s one thing that gamers absolutely need, it’s a set of headphones that ensures they get all the sound they need while also being able to communicate with their friends. The RIG500 series by Plantronics provide both of these better than ordinary headphones. Deals to get these headphones are as low as ever at 70, so don’t hesitate to get these for your dad!
This retro throwback will help your dad relive the great days of the original PlayStation console. Coming equipped with games such as Grand Theft Auto, Resident Evil, and Tekken 3, this console is a can’t miss. With prices nearing 42 on Amazon, this is a great console for a great bargain.
SNES Classic Mini
Continue the theme of going back to the classics, especially if your dad is primarily a Nintendo gamer. You can use an HDMI cord to connect the SNES Classic Mini directly to your TV and play countless hours of games such as Mario Kart and The Legend of Zelda. You can find this online for as low as 106, so take advantage and bring your dad back to the 90s this Christmas.
My Arcade Pac-Man Micro Player
This is a nice, compact gift to get for dad. It’s less than a foot tall and it’s the original Pac-Man interface with a sleek, arcade-like design surrounding it. With a low price at just over 22, you can’t really go wrong with My Arcade’s micro player for Pac-Man.
Corsair Dark Core RGB SE
This is the perfect gift if your dad is a modern gamer with less modern technology. A sufficient mouse for PC gaming is something many people don’t have, but the Corsair Dark Core RGB SE steps up in several ways, such as wireless charging and the ability to store profiles on different games. The Dark Core RGB SE can be found online for 120, a figure which is decently lower than its usual price.
Corsair K95 Platinum
PC gamers need a good mouse, but that’s pointless if it doesn’t have a state-of-the-art keyboard to accompany it. Your dad will love the enhanced storage to store profiles, the aluminum frame and dynamic lighting that this keyboard comes with. It may seem pricey at 160, but your dad will be getting the best that the industry has to offer.
Razer Nommo Chrome speakers
If your dad prefers speakers for gaming, these will be a neat addition under the Christmas tree for him. Gamers may pick from a whopping 16.8 million colors and other lighting effects to personalize their experience, and the sound field is expansive with a high positional accuracy to boot. These can be found online at great deals for just under 100.
