With the holidays right around the corner many people have to shop for the gamer in their family or circle of friends, but what to get them that will surprise and make them excited?

Here are three gifts that will please any gamer:

1. Xbox Live Subscription/points , Wii points or Playstation Network Card

Every gamer needs to stay online and well supplied with extra content or mini games. With many users watching video rentals and downloading extra content there is no easier way to allow your gamer to find what they like without the whole “gift card” giving fiasco.

2. Controllers and Remotes

New controllers for a console gamer are important as well as batteries for them. A DVD or Blu-ray remote for Xbox and Playstation consoles offers the gamer a new toy to use. Racing gamers also love steering wheels for their games.

3. Gamer Lifestyle Gifts

If your not really sure what accesories and game library the gamer has have no fear!

Almost all gamers need some of the following:

  • Energy drink of choice (red bull, monster etc.)
  • Batteries or battery packs
  • Theater candy boxes
  • New DVD or Blu-Ray movies
  • Screen Cloth and cleaner
