It is the holiday season and everyone is excited about it. We can all try to be polite or hide our feelings, but we all know one of the main reasons we love holidays and Christmas is gifts. It is all lovely until you realize you don’t know what to buy for your best friend. The situation might get complex if you don’t know anything about the things he or she loves, like video games. So if your friend and family have an Xbox Series X, you should consider the following recommended gifts.
Because of the holiday season, you can catch many discounts. Apart from that, Xbox Series X is one year old now which means most of the fans acquired their favorite console. Let’s dive into the gift you can get for your Xbox Series X owner friend.
Xbox Series X Best Games
The main reason anyone buys a console is to play their favorite games and the best games in the market. If they have mentioned a game they wanted or shown enthusiasm towards a game that they don’t have right now, you should put that game on priority. But if you don’t know, the games mentioned below are worth spending money on.
- Back 4 Blood – An online multiplayer first-person shooter with zombie elements
- Call of Duty: Vanguard – A first-person shooter set in 1941 with great online and zombie sections.
- Forza Horizon 5 – An arcade racing game, probably the best of 2021, set in the wilderness of Mexico.
- GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition – A collection that contains GTA 3, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas with new and updated textures.
- Guardians of the Galaxy – A third-person action-packed in which you go through an epic journey with Guardians of the Galaxy.
- Mass Effect: Legendary Edition – An RPG third-person shooter galaxy saga, the best for sci-fi fanatics.
- Psychonauts 2 – A fun and weird 3D platformer with great and authentic levels.
Game Pass Subscriptions
Want to buy a bunch of games but not spend a lot of money? The best option is Xbox Game Pass. Xbox Game Pass is Netflix but instead of movies and series, it contains video games. You buy a subscription and then gain access to more than 100 games.
Most of the new games are available on Xbox Game Pass on the release day, and the price is insanely cheap. You can buy the Game Pass monthly subscription for just $9.99. So if you want to buy a bunch of great games at insanely cheap prices, buy them a Game Pass subscription.
Xbox Series X Controller
Gamers can easily establish a bond with their favorite controller. Sometimes it’s because of its color or theme, but mostly because of all the memories it reminds the gamer of. Buying a nice colored Xbox Series X controller will be a fantastic gift. Every time they play a game and grab that controller, they will remember you.
There are two types of controllers which you can buy as a gift, which mostly depends on the person you are buying them for. You can buy a simple controller with different colors like blue or white. But if you know he or she is fond of a game, Gears of War for instance, then you can find a custom controller with Gears of War art.
Xbox Series X SSDs and HHDs
Every gamer loves a little more storage to keep their game saved in it. Since Xbox Series X’s SSD storage is mostly not sufficient for today, you can cheer them up with a brand new external HDD or SSD. Fortunately, Xbox Series X has its own small engineered 1TB SSD that you can buy, but the external SSD storage stops at 1TB. So if your fellow gamer needs or prefers more storage, buying an external HDD with more than 4TB storage would be a great option.
Using a big 4K TV is most common between consoler owners, but still, some prefer a nice monitor for personal reasons. Most of the time because they don’t have enough space in their room for a big TV, they prefer using a gaming monitor that supports 4K. It is probably one of the expensive gifts you can buy but in the end, it would make the Xbox owner happy.
Xbox Series X Headphones
For many reasons, gamers prefer using decent headphones over TV speakers. Since most gamers play online games with their friends, they would love a pair of headphones with some noise-canceling microphone attached to them.
In the case of headphones the higher the price, the better the quality. You can always buy customized high-end headphones with better quality and features. But sticking to a standard Xbox Series X headphones would get the job done as well.
Halo 20th Anniversary Merch
The merch includes:
- Halo 20th Anniversary Playing Cards
- Halo 20th Anniversary Tee
- Halo 20th Anniversary Tumbler
- Halo 20th Anniversary Mug
- Halo 20th Anniversary Hat
- Halo 20th Anniversary Throw Pillow
There is a reason for calling these types of chairs “gaming chairs”. It was designed in a way to make the gamer feel relaxed and not worry about neck aches or backaches for several hours. Buying a gamer a gaming chair not only makes them happy but also indicates you care for their hobby as well as their physical health. A gaming chair could be quite expensive but they’re long-lasting with some fine material.
Mobile Gaming Clip
With the xCloud service, gamers can play their favorite games anywhere with a good speed internet. Playing the latest games with great graphics on your phone means you can play the game anywhere until you have a good internet connection.
For using the xCloud, the gamer would need an Xbox controller, which means they have to put the phone on something so that they would play the game. Buying a mobile clip or stand which can hold the phone in direction and rotation would be a hell of a gift for someone who plays Xbox games.
