23 Best Gifts for Gamers

Most gamers can recall a point in time when gaming was seen as negative and could be used as something for which they could be made fun of. Well, guess what? It’s the 21st century, and we aren't supporters of that—nor were we ever. Here at FUN.com, we want you to be proud of who you are as a person on the inside and the outside. What better way is there to show your gamer pride than to throw on some clothes representing your favorite video games or deck your house out with video game merchandise? Keep on reading for other gamer gift ideas and ways you and your friends can show gamer pride and let your personalities shine!

Video Game Room Decor

Video Game Merch Decor

Decorating your home with things you love is a great way to not only show some personality to your guests, but also give your place a more home-y feel. The following video game merch is perfect for everyday decor gifts for gamers, but also work great if you’re having a video game themed party! One of our best decorating tips is to get Funko POP! Vinyls. Install a few shelves in whichever room you’d like to display them and start showing off your fandoms. When it comes to glassware, a plain glass can do the job, but why serve drinks to your friends with a set of boring glasses when you can offer them a drink in a Pac-Man glass? As they’re taking sips and reminiscing of the nights at the arcade, slip the Super Mario Bros coasters under their drinks and watch as their eyes widen with astonishment. And just when they think you’re done geeking them out, pop some popcorn and throw it into the Pokéball serving bowl. All of these video game gifts are available online at Fun.com! If they aren’t impressed and don’t appreciate your decor efforts, that’s okay—they can leave the premises.

Whether you’re in school or not, there’s always a good use for a backpack. If you’re going to invest money into one, we suggest you put your money towards one that shows off your personality and lets your geekiness shine! Going on a long quest...for spring break? Grab the Legend of Zelda rucksack and begin your journey. With tons of space for laptops, snacks, chargers, clothes, you’ll be set for whatever lies ahead. Maybe your quest is gathering food from the nearest fast food restaurant. In that case, buy the Fallout backpack to carry all of your precious loot. With other designs including Halo, Pokemon, Mario, and more, there's sure to be one to satisfy the gamer in you and your friends.

Video Game Hoodies & Jackets

Hoodies and jackets are good gifts for gamers looking to stay warm and comfy. Hop into your mech and get ready to own D.Va style, with the pink D.Va hoodie. If "one shot, one kill." is more your style, the purple Widowmaker hoodie might suit you better. Overwatch isn’t the only game that has insane hype around it. Do you want to be the very best? Like no one ever was? If your answer is yes, then you'll want to find the Pokémon track jacket. Not only is it super stylish, but you’ll feel like a true Pokémon trainer as you embark on your quest to fill your Pokédex.

Video Game Shirts & Hats

Rather than gifting your friend just a shirt, go the extra mile and throw in a hat or another accessory. It will show you put more thought into that gift for your gaming boyfriend (or girlfriend), as well as give them an awesome outfit to wear out! We've put together four looks to give you some outfit inspiration. Pokémon Go had a burst of success. There was a time when you could go to your local park and see people dressed in Pokémon cosplay, staring at their phones, looking to catch anything but a Pidgey. If you're one of those who is still playing the game or just love Pokémon in general, this is the outfit for you. If catching Pikachus and fighting Squirtles isn't your thing, we've put together a few other outfits to cater to all sorts of gamers.

Whether you're looking to treat yourself or on a quest to find the best Christmas gifts for gamers on your shopping list, we've got tons of video game merchandise to satisfy any gamer.
