Are you ever jealous of the unique items that fill your gamer friends’ homes? They usually have a collection of games, movies, music and collector’s items from each. It’s impossible to figure out where they got any of these, and what you can get them as a gift that would be unique enough to add to their collection. Check out this list for a few suggestions or just some inspiration to get ideas flowing in your mind.
Soundtracks to video games have some of the most impressively composed pieces and are great to listen to anytime. Soundtracks to older games can often be found online or at secondhand entertainment stores. Recently, more developers have even been releasing their video game soundtracks on vinyl. If you have a gamer friend with a record player or even just one who loves to collect, this is definitely the way to go.
A Mystery Box
Many companies have begun producing mystery subscription boxes. Among my favorites is Lootcrate. Each month, Lootcrate has a different pop culture theme for their box and it often includes some exclusive items that you can’t find anywhere else. In addition to their pop culture themed box, they have different subscriptions to boxes such as Anime and Gaming. If your friend likes surprises and loves exclusives, definitely check out their different box options here.
Funko has thousands of different characters recreated through their Pop! figures that span all categories including television, gaming, literature, music and more! It’s hard to turn up empty when looking through a display of these figures, so you’re bound to find something perfect here.
Retro Gaming Consoles
Recently, stores such as Target have been selling reproductions of retro gaming consoles such as the Sega Genesis and the Atari collection. If your friend loves old gaming consoles but you can’t find any vintage ones that still work, this would be a great alternative. They don’t have the high price tag of a new console and often come with the games built in, so you don’t have to make additional purchases for it to be a super fun buy.
It’s intimidating to see a gamer’s collection of all things unique and know what to buy next for them. These options should either prove to be the perfect buy or the perfect inspiration for their next addition or their first in a completely new collection.
