Without a strong brand behind it outside of Steam, it can be hard to know what to get that PC gamer in your life. Luckily, as PC gamers ourselves, we know what are the best PC gamer gifts and products you can buy for that special someone this Christmas.
We’ve tapped into our collective PC gaming mindset before scouring the internet so you don’t have to, and found what we think every PC gamer would love to own.
Read on for a list of the best gifts money can buy for PC gamers, from graphics cards to mini-fridges. You will find something for all budgets.
Best Gaming PC Gifts and Merchandising to Buy
NVIDIA RTX 4080 or 4090 graphics cards
Best for: People who want the latest technology
If money is no object and you really want to surprise someone (or treat yourself), one of the best gifts for a PC gamer is a new graphics card. Stock is relatively scarce, but we recommend the NVIDIA RTX 4080 or 4090.
Both cards are impressive, but the 4090 is the better (and more expensive) of the two. You can find more details on both in our comparison guide.
Buy the NVIDIA RTX 4090 from NVIDIA for £1,699
Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair
Best for: Those looking to play comfortably
Those who sit behind a desktop screen for hours will want to do so in comfort, and the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 Series Gaming Chair is one of the best gaming chairs around. It also has a lot of customization options which means you can personalize your chair. Of course, all this convenience comes at a cost.

Razer Kraken V3 X Headset
Best for: Anyone who still plays online
There are plenty of headphones out there, but this one is one of the best available for under £100. It’s super light (weighing only 285 grams), comfortable to wear and very cool to boot.
It’s also on sale right now, on Amazon as part of the retailer’s Black Friday promotion (sale ends November 28). It has an RRP of £69.99.

Steam Gift Card
Best for: People you don’t know what to buy, but you know they play PC games
Gift cards aren’t the most personal gift, but they’re always appreciated. If you know someone who plays a ton of PC games and you don’t know what titles they already own, buying them a Steam gift card is a great solution.
You can buy Steam Wallet top-up cards from major retailers like GAME, Tesco, and Currys, but the best place to buy them online is CDKeys. They range from £5 in value all the way up to £50 on the site (€100 should also work in the UK, but it’s best to stay safe and go for the sterling option).
