Are you looking for the perfect gift for the gamer in your life, but you’re not sure what they might want?
It can be hard buying for a gamer, especially one who seemingly has everything they need. So, to help out the families and friends of gamers, we have rounded up the top 30 gifts for gamers who have everything.
Most of us know at least one gamer who has a ton of gaming gear and a decked-out rig that looks like they got it from an episode of Pimp My Ride- ‘PC Edition.’ So, it can be difficult to find something for them that matches their interests.
But don’t sweat it; we found some awesome gifts that most gamers will appreciate. We know we would if they were gifted to us. And that’s the point! The following items were hand-picked by gamers for gamers.
Just a quick note before we get started. These products are not in any particular order because you can’t really rank which one of these is the best without knowing who they are for; we’ll leave that up to you. So, with that out of the way, let’s check ‘em out!
1. CyberPower CP1500AVRLCD 1500va/900w UPS
As gamers, our PC is very important to us. That is why many of us opt to use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS), like the CyberPower CP1500AVRLCD UPS.
Like a surge protector, a UPS protects anything plugged into it from being fried during a power surge. Additionally, they provide a battery backup for a short time. This is to provide a window of opportunity to properly power down anything plugged into them, such as a very expensive gaming PC.
This UPS from CyberPower is rated for 1500va and 900w, a perfect amount for a high-end gaming PC. It has two Ethernet ports for added surge protection and a total of 12 outlets. Six are only surge protector outlets, and the other six are both for battery backup and connected to a surge protector. Furthermore, it has an LCD screen that displays all relevant information.
It may be a little pricey, but for the peace of mind it provides, it’s well worth it, and your gamer is sure to be impressed.
2. I Paused My Game to Be Here T-shirt
As you probably already know, many of us are all about game time. And if something interrupts our well-earned time off from reality, we have to pause our game (if we’re playing a single-player game anyways). So, when we saw this shirt, it felt very relatable.
This shirt with the slogan “I paused my game to be here” is sure to get a chuckle out of the recipient. It comes in a small all the way up to a 3XL, so no matter the body type, you’ll be able to get the right size.

Sometimes all a gamer needs to really get in the game is a little boost. And with this mug, they can enjoy a strong cup of coffee or whichever way they drink their caffeine, with a smile on their face and a controller in their hand…kinda.
4. Gameboy Heat Changing Coffee Mug
We couldn’t decide which mug was cooler, the controller mug or this one. So why not both?
This coffee mug is definitely for the coffee-drinking retro gamers. It’s a freaking Gameboy, for crying out loud! Plus, the ‘screens’ are heat-sensitive, and when you add a hot beverage, the heat brings the Gameboy to life. How cool is that?
The front ‘screen’ will display the Super Mario Land start screen like you’re beginning a new game. On the back, it shows the ending where Mario saves Daisy.
So, if you have a person on your shopping list who loves Mario and drinks coffee, this mug will be a hit.

Not only gamers would like these, but anyone who uses a computer for hours at a time would love to get a pair of these blue light-blocking glasses. They help reduce strain on the eyes by applying a blue light filter on the lenses.
Blue light has a shorter wavelength and can cause stress on your eyes. Digital screens emit more blue light than any of the other wavelengths, and the longer you are exposed to it, the more fatigued your eyes can become.

This footrest is made out of soft memory foam and is covered in a gentle breathable fabric. It comes in black, gray, or navy blue and helps promote proper body alignment while sitting at a desk.
If you’ve never experienced a memory foam footrest, we highly recommend giving this one a try. You might want to keep it for yourself.
10. ColorCoral Keyboard Cleaning Gel
If you’ve ever owned a keyboard, which we’re pretty sure you have, you’ll know that in between the keys can get a little dusty, if not downright crumby.
This is especially true for gamers because, during long raids or all-night gaming sessions, we sometimes eat while playing with our friends online. This can result in Dorito crumbs and other bits falling in between the keys. This is where a good cleaning tool comes into play.
