Christmas Gifts for Retro Gamers

Playstation Classic (Mini Console) with 20 Classic Playstation Pre-Loaded Games

PlayStation Classic Console

PlayStation Classic Console

Give the gift of 90s nostalgia with the PlayStation Classic Mini Console. This PS1 comes preloaded with 20 classic video games, including Grand Theft Auto, Resident Evil, and Final Fantasy.

While it is a PlayStation Classic, it has been modernized some. It’s just smaller, powered by USB, and comes with an HDMI cable. It also comes with two classic PS controllers. It does not, however, come with an AC adapter because, well, it’s powered by USB.

The PS1 controllers have short cords, recreating the experience of playing sitting on the floor, playing with friends and family. All the buttons are functional, but the disc holder does not open because there’s no need. And although there is a memory card slot, it’s for the second controller input. But don’t worry, you can still save your progress.

Tula Microphone

Is your gamer into retro aesthetics? A high-quality retro microphone would make a perfect addition to their setup. The Tula Microphone is a palm-sized microphone with a 1950s retro design. The retro aesthetic doesn’t mean outdated tech, though. Tula partnered with Swedish company, Klevgrand to design a new algorithm for exceptional noise reduction.

This cardioid and omnidirectional mic allows for versatile use, from Zoom calls recording for a one-on-one podcast interview. The Tula Mic comes in four beautifully vintage colors: Cream, Red, Black, Seafoam.

Tips for Buying the Best Christmas Gifts for Gamers

Selecting the perfect gifts for gamers can be a bit frustrating, especially if you are not a gamer yourself. But like any other type of gift-giving, listening to your gamer is the key. So, from our gamers to you, here are a few tips on buying the best Christmas gifts for gamers.

  1. Solve a Problem. For gamers, problems come in many forms like old, dying equipment or a chair that doesn’t offer any lumbar support. Listen to their complaints. If you hear “Piece of sh*t headphones” then it’s definitely time for an upgrade. Insert mouse, keyboard, etc. for headphones as well.
  2. Be Thoughtful. Listen to their gushing. “OMG! Did you see this? Look!” If you can, surprise your gamer with whatever that is.
  3. But Don’t Be Too Thoughtful. If you don’t know anything about gaming equipment, don’t try to surprise your gamer with accessories you’ve never heard them mention. Sure, it’s the thought that counts, but think about the space they have, what’s already in that space, and what’s not in that space.
  4. Keep Track of Gifts. Has someone ever bought you a gift while commenting that it’s something they’d like for themselves? Make a note of that. Also, pay attention to whether they make a comment on another gift you were given.
  5. Search Chat History. If you’re still stumped about what to get your special person, here’s a super easy hack. Search your text messages for mentions of “I want” or “I need”. You can do this for social media where you’ve interacted with them as well. Search their username and mentions of “I want” or “I need”.
