The holidays are right around the corner and the gift buying time crunch has begun! Now is the best time to start grabbing up gifts for the gamers in your life! It’s easy to just buy gift cards from their favorite game shop or online retailer. But if you are looking for something more, something that will really have your gamer doing their best victory dance, then I have a list for you. Here are some gaming accessories we think your gamer will love this holiday!

EPOS GSP 601 Headset

The GPS 601 headset from GSP.

Every gamer needs a gaming headset that will let them hear the quietest footfalls of the enemy team. A headset so comfortable they will forget they still have them on even 12 hours later. And no, not any headset will do. My personal recommendation? The GSP 601 headset from EPOS and Sennheiser. The 600 series promise to deliver high, crisp audio fidelity, clarity and exception realism for gaming sessions and they definitely do. They are a wired headset that uses interchangeable cords to connect to a PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch. The GSP 601 is by far one of the most comfortable headsets I have ever worn. But I can’t talk about them without mentioning how beautiful they are as well. I also suggest picking up the GSX 300 from EPOS. The external PC soundcard takes your sound to the next level with customizable surround sound.

Razer BlackWidow

Razer BlackWidow Keyboard.

In the words of a very close friend of mine….click click clickity click. Ahh, the sweet sounds of mechanical keyboards. They make some of the best gaming accessories! And what would be better than the Razer BlackWidow? Aside from being tactical and clicky (their words but I wholeheartedly agree) Razer keyboards last forever. Mine just turned six years old this past year and is still going strong. Razor has fine-tuned their mechanical switches in order to bring a whole new precision to gaming. This is the perfect addition to any PC gaming setup with a rotating RBG blacklight.

Spectra Enhanced Wired Controller

Spectra Enchanced Wired Controller

Some PC games just play better with a controller. But not all controllers are made equal. My favorite? The Spectra Enhanced Wired Controller. Made for both the Xbox and PC, this controller has three-way trigger locks, dual rumble motors, precision-tuned analog thumbsticks and so much more. The controller has a slick design with seven different LED colored edge lighting to fit any gaming station. The controller also features a very likable price point. It has all the special qualities of a high-end controller at a low price point. It is perfect for the controller player in your life.

Corsair Scimitar RGB Elite Optical MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse

Corsair Scimitar Gaming Mouse

If you have ever played a MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) or MMO (massively multiplayer online game) then you know the more buttons you have available to you the better. This is why Corsair’s Scimitar RGB Optical MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse is a perfect gift for the gamer in your life. The mouse features 17 programmable buttons to completely customize gameplay. The best part however is that the side buttons are adjustable and can be moved to fit any hand size. This makes long hours of gaming comfortable on your hands.
