Best gaming chair Christmas deals

Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Stealth Gaming Chair

Gaming chairs can be expensive and can be secondary in a lot of gamers’ minds when compared to more exciting stuff like new games or hardware. But we think that the best gift is something that you really want, but wouldn’t necessarily buy on its own. With that in mind, we present the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Stealth Gaming Chair – the mack daddy of gaming chairs. We said as much in our roundup of best gaming chairs at WePC.com.

This thing does everything you need in a gaming chair to the highest standard and any gamer in your life who receives this monster is going to feel like all their Christmases have come at once.

X Rocker Floor Rocking Gaming Chair

On the other end of the scale – we at PC Guide named the X Rocker Galaxy gaming chair as our best pick. Much more affordable than the Secretlab Titan it’s a great chair with built-in speakers that interact with your game and it’s compatible with all major console platforms. If you’re looking for someone who’s a younger gamer – particularly if they play console – we think this would make a great present.

Best Christmas gaming mice deals

Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro Gaming Mouse

The world of gaming mice is murky – there are a million different ones and they all sound very exciting and the best, until they break the second they’re out of the box. That’s why we’re here – we loved the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro when we reviewed it on WePC.com. Fantastic hand-fit, excellent response, and great build quality. We love the V3 Pro and know any other game will too.

Razer DeathAdder Elite Gaming Mouse

If we’re looking for a more budget option, the Razer DeathAdder Elite is another fantastic bit of kit – a bit less expensive than the V3 and the proportionate drop in performance that comes with that. The DeathAdder Elite is still a splendid mouse that feels light but substantial in the hand.

Best Logitech gaming keyboard Christmas deal

Logitech G915 LIGHTSPEED RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

When we’re looking for gaming keyboards there’s one criteria that’s key – it’s got to be mechanical. The feedback from pressing mechanical keys will beat a membrane keyboard every time. With that in mind, our favorite mechanical gaming keyboard is the Logitech G915. Its super low latency was something that stood out for us in our roundup of best Logitech gaming keyboards as well as how good the thing looks! It’s got dedicated hotkeys to streamline your gaming as well as media controls so that you control your PC as efficiently as possible, letting you stay in the game.

Capcom Super Pocket

Capcom Super Pocket

If you’re looking for someone who wants to relive the good old days of gaming or perhaps introduce a younger gamer to when games used to be actually good. The Capcom Super Pocket is a fun hand-held games console from HyperMegaTech that comes preloaded with a tonne of arcade classics. In our Super Pocket review we loved the fun design and pick-up and play nature of Capcom’s golden age. And at $59.99 we think it’s a great price.

Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom – Official Guide: Collector’s Edition

The Legend of Zelda™: Tears of the Kingdom – The Complete Official Guide: Collector’s Edition

Tears of the Kingdom was this year’s top-selling game, by a long way, so chances are if you’re buying for someone who loves games they’ve played it – and loved it. We did in our review. This beautifully illustrated guide will give them all the tools to explore Hyrule to their hearts content.

Halo energy sword desktop lamp

Ukonic Halo Light-Up Covenant Energy Sword Collectible Desktop Lamp

One of video gaming’s most iconic weapons – the Halo energy sword can adorn your desk as a hard-won battle trophy while you take the fight to the Covenant. We think this is a super fun ornament for someone who loves the Halo franchise and wants to liven up their gaming set-up which are, we admit, often a bit sparse.
