Gift Guide for Gamers

Bose Frames

Who needs a headset when you can wear sunglasses instead? Bose Frames are audio sunglasses that boast the form factor of a nifty pair of shades coupled with high-quality audio playback via hidden yet ergonomic speakers. 

The speakers are so well-hidden you would be forgiven for thinking this is a regular pair of sunglasses. However, with an integrated microphone, premium quality speakers, and a lengthy battery life, Bose Frames take tech sunglasses to a whole new level.

Gaming cookbooks

While many gaming cookbooks are more of a novelty than anything else, some of them have actually got quite the selection of tasty recipes. Games like the Elder Scrolls series, World of Warcraft, and the Fallout series all boast excellent cookbooks. 

If a gaming cookbook sounds like it might be the gift you’re looking for, there are two important things to consider: firstly, the gift recipient should at least be a fan of the game the recipe book is based on; and secondly, ensure that product reviews match up to the quality you expect from your purchase.

Subscription services

Instead of bloating our list with all the games (and devices) on offer these days, we thought it would be far wiser to recommend a monthly subscription to the gaming platform of your choice. 

There are a number of services to choose from, such as Xbox Game Pass and Playstation Plus. Each one is tied to a specific platform, but there are exceptions. GeForce Now, for example, is a live streaming service that turns almost any device into a gaming PC.
