Best Gaming Christmas Gifts for 2022

It is almost that time of year again when the man in the big red suit comes delivering presents, and each of our family members (some of whom are easier to shop for over others) needs to be catered for with a gift. There might well be people in your family that love to do a little gaming, and in a world that is so tech-based, we imagine that most families have at least one gamer in their ranks. If you know a gamer or are looking to buy something gaming-related for the coming Christmas, then we think this quick and easy gift guide will help make that decision a lot easier. You'll be sure to get the best gaming Christmas gifts this year. From trackpads to televisions, here at DID, we have it all for gamers this Christmas season.

Gift Idea #1 – Samsung QLED TVs

Okay, so we are starting off with something a little expensive. But we think that Samsung’s set of QLED televisions are revolutionary in the tech space and are the best gaming Christmas gifts for gamers and anyone who loves to enjoy good television. Each of the Samsung QLEDs that we stock comes with a 5-year warranty, 4k capabilities, laser-slim design, built-in Dolby Atmos, an AI-powered processor, and a whole lot of screen quality. While the QLED range would be considered premium, we believe they are worth the investment.  Thanks to our partnership with Humm Finance, you can buy the perfect QLED television today and pay for it later on in installments. Even if you are buying a new QLED as a self-gift, using Humm might be the best decision that you can make. Spread the payments and enjoy unbeatable quality.

Gift Idea #2 – A New Gaming Chair 

We all love a little added comfort in our lives. For gamers, the most luxurious thing in the world is likely to be a gaming chair. Here at DID, we stock a range of Alphason gaming chairs that will not only provide maximum comfort but will also improve posture as well. The gaming chairs that we stock start at about €200 and go up to €350 but rest assured that they are well worth the investment. So whether it is a self-gift or a gift for someone near and dear, we highly recommend a gaming chair as a mid-range gift this Christmas season.

Gift Idea #3 – A new Gaming Mouse or Keyboard 

We thought that we should introduce a slightly more budget-friendly gaming gift idea for gift number 3. If you have a friend, relative, or loved one who plays their games on a PC, then a new gaming mouse or keyboard will be the perfect gift for them. We stock a range of Corsair products in-store and online, and Corsair is well known as being a high-quality PC gaming accessory creator. Each mouse and keyboard is ergonomically designed to give you the absolute best results possible; with ultra-fast feedback time, stylish design, and an affordable price point, you really can’t do any better when it comes to cheap gaming gifts this Christmas season.

Gift Idea #4 – Sony OLED TVs 

We thought we would make a little TV sandwich in this article and finish by discussing the beauty of the OLED collection from Sony. In each of our 23 stores nationwide, and online, we have a large collection of Sony OLED televisions that would look perfect in any gamers lair, man cave, or living room. Each of our Sony OLEDs has crystal clear quality, sound, and design, comes with a 5-year warranty, produces incredible viewing capabilities, and comes in various colours. What more could you need? Prices start from €1200 and can range up to €3000 for larger flagship models.

As with the Samsung OLED and QLED collections, you can always come up with a compromise by moving to Humm Finance, buying now, and paying later. It is the ideal solution if you don’t happen to have hundreds or thousands at hand.

Gaming Gifting FAQs

Are gaming gifts expensive?

While the consoles can be expensive, there are plenty of gaming gift ideas that don't have to break the bank. This is a bit of a cheeky answer, but honestly, it depends on your budget and what type of gift. It depends on what you want to buy, and what brand you wish to choose from. For example, a Sony QLED 60” TV will probably cost more than a gaming keyboard, but it is your choice to buy. Gifts don’t have to be expensive if you don’t want them to be. If in doubt, you can opt for a DID voucher and let your friend or family member chose their perfect gift. 

Are gamers hard to buy for?

Gamers are notoriously easy to please. They are happy with a good game in front of them, so as long as they have the right equipment, a relaxing environment, some good gamer food and drink, and a great game to play, they are happy. So don’t stress over their gift. They won’t mind at all. 

How much should I spend on a gaming gift?

It depends on what you are looking to buy or whom you are buying for. Typically, they say that you should spend between €50 and €100 on someone that is a close friend or family member. Now, you are always welcome to spend less or more, but this is a good benchmark to follow/stick to. Regardless of your budget, at DID, there are options for everyone.
