Sony PlayStation VR
The hot new PlayStation VR is the best option to experience quality Virtual Reality content and is a must-have for PS4-owners. Unlike the pricier HTC Vive and Oculus Rift that require even more expensive gaming computers to work, all the PS VR needs is a PS4. It’s easy to set up and operate, and there’s plenty of launch content to enjoy too.
Pokémon Sun and Moon
Whether the gamer in your life is a diehard Pokémon fan or recently got hooked via Pokémon Go, the Sun and Moon instalments for Nintendo 3DS make a great gift. This pair of games bring some exciting new updates to the series’ monster-catching gameplay, including four-way battles.
Logitech G230 Stereo Gaming Headset
Not all great gaming headsets costs hundreds of pounds. The budget-minded Logitech G230 offers great sound despite its price. Sweat-proof ear cups and a noise-cancelling boom microphone make it ideal for long multiplayer sessions.
SteelSeries Rival 700 Gaming Mouse
This is a great gift idea for serious PC gamers. Its key features include a neat OLED display and customisable tactile feedback. Another cool highlight is the RGB illumination that can be tweaked to the user’s liking.
Nintendo NES Classic Edition
Old-school gamers can relive their 80s nostalgia with the NES Classic – a mini console that comes with 30 in-built games, including: Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and The Legend of Zelda.
