Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and while some have prepared lavish shows of affection and gifts, others might be quite puzzled about what to get their significant other (SO). The confusion intensifies when your SO is an avid gamer and your experience in gaming is just limited to Pokemon Go.
But fret not my lost friend, I’m here to make sure that your romantic gesture doesn’t disappoint. Every item I’ve picked out is priced below S$200 to cater to just about everyone. Without further ado, here’s my list of 8 gifts you can get to impress your gamer guy or girl:
Steelseries M500 Gaming Keyboard (SGD$189)
While most keyboards these days strive to pack as many flashy features into their products as possible, the Steelseries M500 is a dependable full size keyboard with minimalistic design, offering good performance. Gamers who shy away from colorful backlit and clicker-ty keys (Cherry MX red keys used here!) will certainly enjoy the stealthiness of the keyboard as well as how it looks and plays in the battlefield.
Kingston’s HyperX Cloud Revolver Gaming Headset (SGD$169)
Offering studio grade sound stage and a durable steel frame, these headphones are so comfortable they will please any gamer who enjoys gaming for long hours.
Razer DeathAdder Chroma Gaming Mouse (SGD$119)
This mouse is great for gamers who want their peripherals to look swag while performing at top tier. Players can customize how the mouse glows and enjoy an improved 10,000 DPI sensor vs its previous 6,400.
Owndays PC Glasses (SGD$60)
Gaming for long hours can put a huge strain on the eyes and could lead to poor eyesight. Help your gaming love to protect their eyes with a pair of Owndays PC glasses! There are prescription lenses available, you can customize your spectacles and pick them up within the hour.
50 Overwatch Loot Boxes (Approximately SGD$60)
Overwatch scored 2016’s game of the year and is loved by many gamers worldwide because of its addictive gameplay and interesting lore behind many of its characters. The one thing every player vies for besides ‘Player of the game’ is its exclusive skins which are acquired through opening loot boxes. Buy your gamer 50 loot boxes and watch them grin from ear to ear! Want to get a feel for what you’re buying? Watch Gab & Gerry from Reboot Reload open 100 Overwatch loot boxes.
