Christmas has been and gone, and you’ve most likely been left with a hang over, a few stone gained in weight and a few presents you might not have asked Santa for.
So, to start the new year off right, we are going to look through all your video game related gifts for the next year ahead, so you have plenty of time to plan these gifts. Whether you are buying for a gamer or want to find something to treat yourself you’ll find it all here.
Christmas Jumpers (Assorted Games) – Numskull/Geekstore ( https://www.geekstore.com/ )
Now, I have never really been a fan of Christmas jumpers but the selection from Numskull are an exception. These jumpers really do rule out the ‘Ugly’ from Christmas jumpers with a wide variety of game on show ranging from Space Invaders or Spyro right down to Street Fighter or Masterchief (you can even make Mum or Nanna a geek with a Candy Crush one) each with a unique design and colour but at the same time showing that geeky Christmas spirit. If you are like me and know someone who’s a bit of a geek and won’t participate in Jumper wearing at Christmas I truly believe these jumpers will change their mind. I know I have.
Assorted gaming clothing – Insert Coin ( https://www.insertcoinclothing.com/ )
If you are like me and do not like your clothing plain Insert Coin have all your needs. With more games then you can count with T-Shirts, hoodies, socks and Jackets all on show for all your needs for male or female gamers. I have numerous items in my wardrobe with my personal favourites including Bioshock and Kojima Productions. but also include The last of Us, Bloodbourne, Gears of War, Monster Hunter and God Of War. They are all incredible quality and you’ll find whoever you buy these for wearing them for years and repping the best of the best.
Traditional tattoo prints – Tattoo Harbour ( https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TattooHarbourPrints )
This next one is locally discovered one but does not shy away on quality. Me and my partner met him at a local comic con and as fans of Overwatch we were both immediately drawn to a digital drawing of Mercy in her witch skin and immediately knew we needed it in our flat. He has designed a wide range of pop culture prints but for the gamer in you he has included; Overwatch, Mass Effect and Pokemon. If you need something for someone who has a very geek filled house then look no further.
House Items and Decor – Dark Warehouse ( https://www.darkwarehouse.co.uk/ )
This year at EGX there was one stall which I wish I could of bought something but unfortunately because of travel we simply could not and that was Dark Warehouse. Filled with stunning furniture, Stone Slabs and unique wall art all based on Fallout and the Elder Scroll series these stunning pieces would stand out from anything gaming related you have seen before. Absolutley perfect for a Bethesda fan, my pick of the bunch would be the Nuka Cola girl table or the highly detailed map of Morrowind.
Assorted Gifts – Grindstore ( https://www.grindstore.com/gaming/ )
Now, if you are after assorted gifts/stocking filling look no further than Grindstore they have a whole section to gaming ranging from Mugs, Posters, Wallets, Keyrings, Bags, Scarves, Hats and badges. With the games ranging from Playstation, Destiny, Pokemon, Overwatch, Call of Duty, Mario and many more, you are guaranteed to find a gamer not only their favourite game but also plenty to fill their stockings these holidays.
