The Christmas season is upon us again!
I’ve not really been into Christmas for many years. Haven’t put up a tree for as long as I can remember, have only just begun wrapping presents again the past three years, only just started baking for the holidays again, etc etc. I’m kind of a Grinch sometimes. But that doesn’t mean I don’t like giving gifts – and I am an excellent gift-giver. At least, I think so.
So, in the spirit of Christmas and being a decent gift giver, here are my top five gamer Christmas gifts, hopefully with enough time for you to order one (if you want to) for the gamer in your life!
1. Assassin’s Creed 3 Hoodie
This one should be obvious, really. I rave about Assassin’s Creed – and while I wasn’t the biggest fan of Black Flag, I have definitely enjoyed every other installment thus far. Plus, how sexy would your boyfriend or husband look in this jacket? It ships worldwide from France, so right off – getting it in time for Christmas would probably be… challenging. But I have to admit that I think it’s such a hot jacket, that it’d be worth the wait.
Available in sizes M through XXXL in a variety of colors on Etsy by seller spoderrrstore – $50.00 plus shipping.
2. Bioshock Infinite Bird/Cage Necklace or Brooch
These are beautiful pendants that come in either brooch or pendant form, inspired by Bioshock Infinite. I personally would love to get both, but if I had to pick, I would likely go with the bird cage. Not sure why – it it simply beautiful to me. The necklace comes on an 18″ bronzed chain and the brooch is available with a pin on the back ready for you to wear it.
Ships from Reno, Nevada. On Etsy by seller leagueofshadows. $13 plus shipping.
3. Self-Rescuing Princess Mug
If you’re a coffee guzzler like me, you would probably love this mug. But let’s face it – whether you’re filling it with coffee or Mountain Dew, you have to admit this is cute as hell. Take that, Mario!
Available on Think Geek for $9.99 plus shipping.
4. Laser Cut Fallout Brotherhood of Steel Earrings
These unique earrings are made out of light weight 1/8″ Baltic Birch plywood and sealed with a non-toxic, food safe finish to make them water resistant incase they’ re put in with wet hair or accidentally worn in the shower. From ear to end, they hang 3″. And they’re BEAUTIFUL, right?
Available on Etsy from seller AlterImagination. $15 plus shipping.
5. Sweet Roll Keychain
I’ll be totally honest and say that I added this one purely because it made me laugh. It is probably my favorite joke in Skyrim, and personally, I would be thrilled to get this as a gift. What are the holidays for if not for the chance to give your gamer friends hilarious gag gifts?
Available on Etsy by seller ElDelicious. Ships from Italy. $10.91 plus shipping.
Well that’s that for now! I hope this gave you some simple ideas, and that you all have a very happy holiday season!
