Well, December has parted and we’re suddenly left with the havoc of the January sales. Only, most of us seem to be facing the shelves digitally rather than in-store, thanks to a certain pandemic slumping over the world. Of course, it’s somewhat convenient, seeing as a lot of gamer gifts can be hard to acquire in most standard high street stores. PlayStation gifts especially can be hard to find if you don’t know where to look, but with the right keywords — anything can be found.
Perhaps you’re a Sony follower simply wishing to expand your collection. Maybe you’re a family friend or significant other who hasn’t the slightest clue what to get the gamer in the house. Well, here’s hoping by the end of this list you’ll know exactly what needs adding to the basket. Keep a close eye on this space, because we’ll be covering Xbox gifts very soon, too. Until then — feast your eyes on the Sony goodness. It’s time to go shopping.
7. PlayStation Light
How could you not showcase the iconic PlayStation symbols somewhere on your gaming display? Not only are they wildly colourful, but also a neat little addition to any Sony shelving unit or cabinet. Plus, for $30 from most online retailers, you’d be crazy not to bag the icons. Also, if you’re taking a liking to this light, then it might also be worth checking out the other designs available, too. They’re soothing, stylish, and most definitely a centrepiece to any Sony collection.
6. PlayStation Classic Coasters
A quirky idea that not many people tend to think of is making classic PlayStation cases into coasters. Seems slightly odd at face value, but looking at the product — it seems wild not to use them to hold your morning coffee. And, coming in several volumes, buyers can select various mix and match cases to add to a collection. From Gran Turismo to Tekken, Time Crisis to MediEvil; drinking your caffeine fix and having a piece of nostalgia to store your cup has never looked more stylish. Just don’t expect the cases to hide actual discs, because you might be disappointed.
5. PlayStation Stress Controller
We’d be lying if we said that we have never once felt the urge to squeeze our controllers past the breaking point. At times, it seems incredibly difficult when feeling the pressure of an overwhelming boss battle or online ranked race. Thankfully, Sony covered us when they decided to create a squishy edition to the PlayStation controller collection. Conveniently palm-sized and indestructible, this downsized pad can rest assured knowing gamers can thrash out their rage with its foamy design without ever daring to crack. Plus, it saves the actual controller from ever having to endure the mighty grip of frustrated players.
4. Controller Holder
Now, these fashionable little figures have been floating around for quite some time now. In fact, gamers not only use them to store their controllers — but also their tablets, phones and handheld consoles, too. With a wide range of choosable characters, these convenient miniatures can not only keep your pad safe — but also add a little extra style to your collection, too. Of course, being a PlayStation list, we’d have to recommend picking up either a Spyro or a Crash Bandicoot one. Failing that, then maybe a Claptrap edition from Borderlands.
3. PlayStation Alarm Clock
Whether you’re getting up for work or just scheduled to settle in for an ultimate gaming session; this PlayStation alarm clock can keep you on track with its original design and familiar interface. Also, with fully-functional buttons, owners can customize and tweak a few things before setting it up in its new home. Either on a desk or next to your bed; owning one of these can pretty much help you stay on top of your schedule from the moment you wake to the second you sleep.
2. 3D Night Light
Illuminate your room with this holographic night light that switches colours depending on your preference. With a range of designs that go from controllers to icons, brands to characters; this neat 3D light can truly brighten any room and give it that extra enhanced glow. Plus, we think it’d look pretty cool on any graveyard shift workers’ desk, what with its charming luminosity and elite design.
1. PlayStation Mug
What better way to compliment your PlayStation themed coasters than to use a branded PlayStation mug for them to sit under? If you’re really into your PlayStation merchandise, then it seems like an obvious choice when shopping for your next piece of Sony gear. And, luckily for us, there isn’t just the one generation of the controller, either. In fact, you can pick up the different DualShock editions in both black and white, depending on the stores’ availability. Now that’s a great idea.
