What do you buy the gamer in your life to fill that stocking? COGconnected has you covered with these 12 Stocking Stuffer Ideas:
1 – POP Figures
Rising to inexplicable popularity, POP figures seem to be available in almost every shop and represent all manner of media: sports, video games, music, movies, and television to name a few. With the recently launched Star Wars: The Last Jedi, why not pick up one of the newly crafted Star Wars Episode 8 POP figures for the little Jedi or sith collector in your life?
2 – Xbox One Controller Battery
Considering how much gaming is about to be had over the holiday season, it’s a gamers worst nightmare for the batteries to die mid-fight only for you to have to scramble to find a replacement pair as quickly as possible. There are a variety of options for the Xbox One controller battery and most of them retail under $20, so if you picked up a copy of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, or any other lengthy title for someone, I’m sure they will greatly appreciate the peace-of-mind of gameplay security.
3 – Switch Accessories
The Nintendo Switch has had arguably one of the most successful years for the company, and with the all-new hybrid console comes a myriad of options in the form of customization and accessories. While the skins and stickers for the console had a rough start, there are now plenty of options including carrying case, screen protectors, stands, and many – MANY more. If your special someone has a Switch, chances are they could do with an accessory to improve their personal gaming style.
4 – PlayStation 4 Move Charging Dock
PlayStation 4’s PSVR has been taking steps in the right direction and is one of the leading forms of VR entertainment. While many games will let you control your character with a standard Dualshock 4, the most immersive experience comes from using the Move controllers alongside the headset. All of those countless hours spent in virtual reality while the bird cooks is bound to take a serious toll on your batteries, so why not pick up a charging dock and forget worrying about it?
