If you’re like me or most, other humans on planet earth, you’ve realized that the Holidays are just a few days away, and you have yet to complete (or maybe even start) your holiday shopping. Well, You’re in luck! I’m here to help you find the best cheap last-minute gift ideas for gamers!
A great last-minute gift idea for gamers is a controller. A gamer can never have too many controllers, and the next one they receive might be their favorite. And if you or a gamer you know is looking to game in style, why not try out the PDP Rock Candy Wired Controller. These bad boys retail at $19.99, which is the fraction of the cost of a lot of gaming controllers.
These psychedelic controllers feature a sleek ergonomic design that fits perfectly in the hands of gamers of all ages. They also come in a range of funky colors and are made with a clear polycarbonate shell showing off the circuitry inside the controller. The PDP Rock Candy Wired Controller can be found online at the PDP store or on Amazon.
Speaking of controllers, if you’re looking for a more custom experience, try PDP’s Faceoff Wired Pro Controllers which are completely customizable using PDP’s Faceoff Mod Kits. A personal favorite of mine is the Faceoff Deluxe+ Audio Wired Controller in black camo because it looks sleek and its headphone port solves the headset problem the official Nintendo Switch Pro-Controller has.
These completely customizable controllers fit perfectly on the list of last-minute gift ideas for gamers because they totally affordable coming in at $24.99 for a pro-controller and the customizable mod kits are only $9.99 wich together are still cheaper than an official pro-controller.
What if you’re looking for something for a gamer on the go? A travel case for the Nintendo Switch makes for a perfect gift, but not just any case will do. PDP has a new line of sleek, convenient, and protective carrying cases for the Nintendo Switch.
These Deluxe Travel Cases had to make the list of last-minute gift ideas for gamers because of how handy they are. They can store up to 14 physical game cartridges, have additional space for earbuds and various gaming accessories. And not to mention they look great! So many carrying cases can look tacky or gaudy and can be embarrassing to carry around. However, these deluxe cases come in three separate styles that will make a gamer proud to it with them.
I hope I could help you on your journey to complete your holiday shopping. I know that I have helped myself cross a few names off my list, and I’m sure any gamer would be more than happy to receive such wonderful gifts this holiday season.
