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 to be made fun of for. Well, guess what? It’s 2018 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 out. What better way to show your pride than to throw on some clothes representing your favorite games or decking your house out with video game merchandise? Keep on reading for other ways you and your gamer friends can show gamer pride and let your personalities shine!

Video Game Room Decor

Video Game Merch Decor

Tetris Light Set       Pokémon Poke Ball Serving Bowl      Pac-Man Drinkware Set      Super Mario Bros. Coasters

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 items are perfect for everyday decor gifts, but also work great if you’re having a video game themed party! One of our favorite ways to decorate is with 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 glasswear, a plain glass can do the job, but why serve drinks to your friends with these when you can offer them 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. If they aren’t impressed and don’t appreciate your decor efforts, that’s okay, they can leave the premises.

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 the gift, 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.
