Best Gifts for Summer Gamers in 2024

Samsung 870 EVO SATA III SSD 1TB

For PC gamers, a solid-state drive would be the safest choice, and the Samsung 870 EVO SATA III 1TB brings the most value. Most gamers have a problem with storage, and if they don’t, they could always use more storage to install more games or keep more files. A solid-state drive fixes that problem and more. Installing games on your SSD improves performance because the drive can read the files faster, and therefore, the games play much smoother.

Logitech G PRO X Gaming Headset 2nd Generation

The Logitech G PRO X Gaming Headset has long been one of the top wired gaming headsets, which is probably why they introduced the second generation of the same model. It features a top-class microphone with a noise reducer, compressor, and limiter for a much cleaner input.

They also added their next-gen 7.1 object-based surround sound for better positional and distance awareness while playing your favorite games. You’ll surely hear those footsteps now when playing the latest competitive games like Valorant or CS2. The price is a bit steep, but you can also go for the 1st Generation if you want a cheaper alternative.

Sennheiser EPOS GSP 500 Open Acoustic Wired Gaming Headset

Another cheaper alternative would be the Sennheiser EPOS GSP 500. Since this model has been around for over five years, you are definitely getting your money’s worth because it is one of the best headsets in terms of value. Sennheiser has been a household name for decades when it comes to delivering exceptional sound design, and when they suddenly introduced a gaming headset, it instantly became a top contender.

PlayStation DualSense Wireless Controller

If you are planning on gifting someone that you know who has a PlayStation 5, giving a PlayStation DualSense Wireless Controller will be a great and safe choice. If they only play solo, they don’t have to worry as much about downtime due to the battery because they can now alternate between controllers. They can also invite more friends over and play some split-screen games. Even gamers who don’t have a PlayStation 5 can get value from a PS5 controller since they can use it for their PC games as well.

PlayStation DualSense Wireless Charging Station

The PlayStation DualSense Wireless Charging Station tidies up any gaming setups by giving a home for your controllers. If the recipient constantly plays games with friends, the charging station will help you charge all of your wireless controllers at once. You don’t have to worry about your controllers running out of battery when you are playing the latest sports games for hours on end.

Logitech MX Mechanical Wireless Illuminated Keyboard

The Logitech MX Wireless Mechanical Keyboard delivers various features such as backlit keys, more customization options for faster workflow, multi-device pairing on up to three devices, USB-C quick charging, and a decent Li-Po 1500 mAh rechargeable battery. Apart from the features, you also have different variants such as the compact version for those who prefer a smaller keyboard. It also has different key styles if you prefer a clicky (loud), linear (smooth), or tactile (quiet) keyboard.

AOC Q27G3XMN 27″ Mini LED Gaming Monitor

The AOC Q27G3XMN gaming monitor is one of the best monitors on the market. It has various sizes from 24″ all the way to 34″ and they come with OLED, Mini-LED, curved FHD, QHD, and UHD variants. They all depend on what your recipient prefers. However, the 27″ Mini-LED QHD version is the best when it comes to value. You’ll get a 2K QHD 2560 x 1440 resolution with a 180Hz refresh rate, perfect for competitive gamers.

Access Controller – PlayStation 5

While the PlayStation Access Controller might look uncomfortable to use as a gamer, it is actually designed to help players with disabilities play more comfortably. It is labeled as a controller kit because it has several swappable buttons and stick caps so you can improve your layout for those who have limited mobility.

Logitech Mouse Pad – Studio Series

The Logitech Mouse Pad features a smooth cloth surface to allow effortless movement whether you are gaming or just doing work in the office. It is spill-repellent, and its coated surface makes it very easy to clean when it gets dirty. It comes in three colors: graphite, darker rose, and blue-grey. For low-sensitivity gamers, you might need to look for a much bigger one, though.

10-in-1 Cleaning Kit

The 10-in-1 Computer Cleaning Kit is definitely a must-have for gamers who love to snack while gaming. Those crumbs on your precious mechanical won’t clean themselves. The 10-in-1 kit has a screen brush tool, a keyboard brush cleaner, a soft plastic cleaning pen for the lens, several cleaning cloths, a tiny sponge for cleaning earbuds, and a key cap puller. This all-in-one tool will take care of your gadgets, devices, and peripherals.

ODISTAR Desktop Vacuum Cleaner

If those tools aren’t enough, the ODISTAR Desktop Vacuum Cleaner will definitely be enough. This portable mini vacuum cleaner is designed to clean wide desks of any dust, crumbs, and scraps from your table in a seamless way. The device is cordless, so you don’t have to worry about adding another wire to your setup. It runs on two AA batteries with a 360° rotatable design.

Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse

Logitech outdid itself again with its Logitech G305 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse. Its egg-shaped design gives gamers a comfortable experience for those long hours of gaming. The mouse is built with a pair of side buttons and one behind the scroll wheel. For a lightweight mouse, it is still a bit heavy considering its size. The Logitech G305 is built for performance due to its low click latency, especially for a wireless mouse. It has been out for several years, and it is still one of the best mice professional players use for their competitions.

Qutool Lumbar Support Pillow

If you know somebody who spends upward of five hours a day sitting on a chair for either gaming or work, they’ll surely need good lumbar support for their back. The Qutool Lumbar Support Pillow is a convenient way to “upgrade” your chair, especially for those who don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on a gaming chair. The product features a thick and durable memory foam that ensures you are sitting comfortably and with the correct posture. It has a removable mesh cover, which makes the pillow easy to clean.

FAQs About Gamer Gifts

Where should you buy the gifts for gamers?

While there are probably thousands of options out there, Amazon should be the best place to buy because of its wide selection and accessibility. If you want more hands-on support when buying, it is best to go to a physical store such as Walmart, Target, or Best Buy. Some great products aren’t available in some of these stores, even on Amazon, so some prefer to buy gifts directly from the brand’s official website.

Do the products bought online have a warranty?

If you buy products from Amazon, you can use the Amazon Return Policy to return a damaged or unopened product. You can learn more about Amazon’s Return Policy on the specific page of your product on Amazon’s site. Apart from the Return Policy, there is also more warranty information if you go directly to the manufacturer’s website. You can also message the seller directly for any clarifications on the warranty information of the product before purchasing.

When is the best time to buy gifts in the summer?

Several occasions in the summer offer some of the best deals of the year. The best time to buy gifts is either on the 4th of July (Independence Day) or the second week of July (Amazon Prime Day). These dates will surely give you the best deals possible on all products, especially the ones listed above since they are mostly from Amazon.
