I have two people in my life who are die hard video game players and I always have a hard time buying gifts for them since I myself have no idea about video games. I have along the way found different ideas that are perfect for them and I don’t have to know anything about video games and what’s hot on the market right now.
You can’t go wrong with a gift card to your local video game store. So many times I have picked up what I thought was the right game to later find out I have purchase the completely wrong game. Giving a gift card gives your gamer the freedom to purchase just what they want without the hassle of having to return the wrong game they were given.
Time Cards For Online Play
Even though I don’t have a clue about video games I do at least know what system they can play online or what PC games they have that require paid gaming time. Many online games such as War Of Warcraft, City Of Hereos and more have a monthly fee that goes along with them. Luckily these games also make game cards that you can purchase with prepaid game time. Many of the new gaming systems are also capable of going online but again require prepaid gaming time. Not only is a game card a great gift but it is really a no brainer and you can’t go wrong here.
Video Game Magazine Subscriptions
The gamers in my life love to keep up with what games are coming out, what’s hot and what’s not and the reviews on new games and systems. They love getting the magazines in the mail that give them all the information, You can get a 12 month subscription for under $20 and it’s the gift that keeps giving all year long. Not sure what is the best magazine to sign them up for? Head to your local game store and ask them. The people who work in game stores are usually gamers themselves and can offer you a ton of good information.
Gift Cards To Places Your Gamer Can Rent Games From
Many gamers love trying the gamers out before they actually purchase them for their own collection. Usually your local video store rents video games for many different video systems. Pick them up a gift card for the video store gives them the freedom to rent a game and try it out for a few days.
Remember that it’s easier to pick out what you want then have the hassle of standing in line, returning an unwanted item and them picking out what you want. If your not sure about a game don’t worry about getting it right. Picking up something else gamer worthy and give your gamer the fun of buying his or her own personally wanted item.
