12 Great Stocking Stuffers Ideas for Gamers 2018
It’s that time of year again. Lots of trees and ornaments and rude customers harassing retail employees…and the age-old question, one that I’m sure has been asked for generations: what do you put in a gamer’s stocking on Christmas Eve? Well, don’t worry, we have your back with twelve great tips for stocking stuffers for the geeks and gamers in your life. And don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone if you end up buying them for yourself—you, after all, are the most important person to buy gifts for.
At first, you don’t like them. They’re ugly and hardly look like the character, and besides, you don’t shop at Hot Topic anymore. But then you get one as a gift, and you can’t stop staring into its soulless eyes. Before you know it, you’ve got half a dozen perched on your bookshelves. Start the madness for someone else—or contribute to it—by getting them one of their favorite video game character, like outlaw Jesse McCree or, perhaps, the classic Commander Shepard. The best thing about these little things is their variety—I, for example, have a Funko POP Asia figure of everyone’s favorite mercenary surgeon Black Jack. To each their own, right?
With a wide range of prices and a slim figure capable of fitting into any stocking, a Logitech gaming mouse is the perfect gift for any PC gamer in your life. Most Christmas gift-openers might not want to find something squeaky and tail-possessing in their stockings, but considering how important a good mouse and its sensitivity can be for those headshots, a Logitech mouse will make any PC gamer light up.
These cute little paper figures come in long, thin packages, making them the epitome of the perfect stocking stuffers. Once you have them in your hands, you can build them into the little figures they’re designed to be, which include Vocaloid characters like Hatsune Miku and Rei and Asuka from Evangelion. Perfect size for your favorite weaboo’s stocking.
BlizzCon is freshly over, and with it came the introduction of a new Overwatch hero, and with that means: new merch. If someone you know loves Ashe or McCree (or just has a thing for fictional gangs with heaps of retconned lore) you can slide one of these Deadlock bandanas in there. If your beloved is a little less specific in their tastes but loves Blizzard, well, one of their keychain fits right in the toe of a stocking.
