PlayStation is having a two-generation success story for the first time in the console brands history, not to mention the PlayStation 5 being the best year one console launch ever. PlayStation lovers pride themselves on quality first-party exclusives and innovation, which means they’ve probably got their games already or pre-ordered.

What about when it comes around to gifting? How do you buy the best gifts for PlayStation lovers when they probably have all the accessories and games they need? Well, there’s some brilliant PlayStation merchandise all over the web we want to show you that will make perfect gifts. Let’s get into it:

Best gifts for PlayStation lovers

Paladone Playstation 5 Icons Light PS5 XL

This mood light is a brilliant addition to any PlayStation lovers setup. It glows a nice PlayStation blue, going nicely with any RGB gamer setup one might have. It has three lighting modes: Standard, special effect, or color phasing that reacts to sound. It can be powered by 3x AAA (not included) to save on wires, but it does come with a USB wire to plug into either a USB Plug or USB slot on a PlayStation 5.

Paladone Playstation Travel Mug PS5

Travel mugs are great all year round, who doesn’t like a good cup of coffee or tea in the morning, right? This one holds up to 450ml (15oz) and features silver PlayStation button symbols set against a white background. It’s like having a one-drink flask, which comes in really handy when on the morning commute and you don’t want to carry around a week’s supply of coffee. Plus, this is another bit of merchandise that your PlayStation lover will really enjoy.

Official Sony PlayStation 5 Launch Collection Merchandise Bundle

Nothing gets gamers foaming at the mouth more than the promise of limited edition products. How about Controller Gears Launch Collection for that perfect best PlayStation lovers gift? You’ll get a wool cap, an insulated bottle to keep cold drinks cool and hot drinks warm, socks, and some quality decal stickers for your electronics. It all comes nicely presented in a collectors set display box too. Its contents are practical and it looks like a nice gift too, this one is a no-brainer for us.

PlayStation Launch Collection “Crossbody” Shoulder Bag

Do you like the look of the merchandise bundle above? How about getting a matching backpack to complete it? It’s got PlayStation lovers in mind thanks to it being an officially licensed product, not to mention that lovely grey PlayStation logo on the front. It’s made from 300D fabrics with nylon strap, printed lining, nautical chords, and all the compartments and pockets PlayStation lovers need for their tech. We’d also like to point out that it really goes well with the merch bundle wool cap, just saying.

PlayStation Classic

OK, we cheated, this isn’t really PlayStation merchandise and more of a games console, but hear us out! The PlayStation Classic is a mini version of the original PlayStation with some classics built-in for long-time PlayStation Lovers. If your giftee is a fan of Final Fantasy VII, Ridge Racer, or Tekken, this is a perfect blast from the past they need. It connects to any TV via HDMI and includes two wired controllers. Oh, and the memory card is now virtual!

Playstation Metal Coasters PS5

If your giftee is a true PlayStation lover, they’ll want anything and everything in their home to be as PlayStation as possible. You might think coasters are a bit of a stretch for gamers, but the last thing we want is our brand new gaming desks being destroyed with cup ring marks. These coasters have a cork back and metal front with that stunning blue and white design found on PlayStation 5 marketing material. The brushed metal button logos finish these coasters off perfectly. Did we just write a paragraph on how good a coaster looks? You bet we did!

Ripple Junction PlayStation Hoodie (Unisex)

From sizes small to triple XL, which PlayStation lover in their right mind would turn their nose up at this great hoodie? We all want to be warm and chilled out when gaming, so why not grab a great gift that reflects that? It features the original PlayStation logo alongside the first release country and year, ‘Japan, 1994’. It makes us all feel a little nostalgic here at PC Guide HQ, and we imagine it will go down a treat as one of the best PlayStation lover gifts.
