It’s Christmas time. A time for spending time with your loved ones, giving back to the community and also experiencing pure anxiety over what the hell to buy someone. Seriously, I love Christmas but trying to figure out the right gift for everyone is the worst. Everyone has a particular taste, so if you’re like me, you want to get the right thing for the right person.

Now take that process, and throw in the fact the person you love is a gamer. This both makes the process a bit harder and easier depending on the person. We love our games, and we love the merch that comes out with it. This is a guide for you, the person who has no idea what their gamer daughter, son, cousin, significant others would like.

If anything, it gives you an idea of what a gamer might like ranging from a pair of socks, some collectibles all the way to a life-sized statue (so all budgets are accommodated). Well then, let’s get shopping!

Star Wars Yoda Lightsaber Chopsticks

If your favorite person is loving Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, and also loves gorging out on sushi, why not get a pair of these lightsaber chopsticks that glow! I have a pair myself, and I’ve only had a few people stare at me when using them (out of jealousy of course).

OMEN by HP Obelisk Desktop

When all else fails, a powerful gaming PC can win over pretty much anyone. While most times the best practice is to build your own computer but let’s face it, you don’t have the time or you’re too scared to build it from scratch. HP pre-build computers are high quality, well built and the ultimate gamer gift.
