Last Minute Gifts for Gamers
So looking over your list, you realize that you have nothing for your favorite gamer. ACK! It's too late to order a great gift for gamers. What will you do? Never fear! Here are some ideas for last minute gifts for the online addict in your life.
- Edible gifts - When in doubt, make it something edible. You know those gift sets at your local supercenter? The ones with a sausage log, cheese roll, and some crackers? It's kind of a corny gift, but it's also the perfect snack for those times when you need a little pick-me-up in the middle of a raid or other campaign.
- Coffee cards - Especially to places like coffee shops. In fact, I don't think I have a single friend online who isn't a coffee drinker. It doesn't have to be to somewhere like Starbucks -- local shops and even convenience stores serve the purpose. And don't forget to add in some creamers and sugar packets for the ultimate last-minute redneck coffee lover's package!
- iTunes - Gamers can't properly game without a killer playlist. With an iTunes gift card you can forget the stress of wondering what music they like -- and let them make their own selections!
- Snuggy - Or a fuzzy-wuzzy, or a slanket, or the mutant-arm-blanket-coat-thing. Either way, it's designed to let one enjoy the coziness of a blanket while retaining full upper body mobility -- perfect for gaming on cold nights! Added bonus if you toss in a pair of fingerless gloves for typing.
- Insulated, over-sized travel mug - Whether the gamer on your list wants to keep their soda iced cold or their coffee piping hot, this gift is sure to please. They come in an assortment of sizes and colors, and I even saw some recently that featured Angry Birds!
Just remember that while not all gamers are online addicts, many do invest a lot of time in a sedentary lifestyle. If you aren't a gamer, and aren't fond of playing online games (I mean, aside from Angry Birds. Who doesn't play that?) just think of what you want while enjoying an afternoon as a couch potato, and go from there.
What are your suggestions? I'd love to hear them. Thanks for reading!
