If you’re struggling to find the right gift for the gaming partner in your life for Valentine’s Day?
It can be tricky: gamers have a broad mix of preferences, ranging from the genres they play, the hardware they use, and what accessories best fit their setup. This list covers a wide range of high quality products across the whole gamut, so you should be able to find something thoughtful for that special gamer in your life.
Razer Kraken BT Kitty Edition
Razer is known for their high quality peripherals and hardware. They’re also well known for lots of official collaborations, including this Hello Kitty edition of its Kraken BT headset.
The collaboration uses the same 40mm drivers in the original Razer Kraken BT edition, so there’s no difference in audio quality or spatial awareness. But the added color and cat ears can be a great choice for someone who wants their headset to stand out a little more — although there is a standard black/Razer Green edition if that’s more to taste.
- Pink, bright aesthetic
- 40mm drivers
- Unidirectional microphone for noise cancellation
Fog of Love Board Game
Fog of Love is a two player board game that tests the romance between two people. The game pits both players through a series of hypothetical romantic scenarios where the players meet, fall in love and then face various challenges trying to make the relationship work.
It’s an inventive twist on a romantic comedy within the context of a board game, with stats, true roleplaying and differing Destinies between players and lots of surprises. It’s perfectly themed for Valentine’s Day and a great couples experience, especially for fans of romcoms and board games.
- Clever spin on traditional board game mechanics
- Perfect fit for Valentines Day
- Great for couples or would-be couples
