Whether it's your mother, your brother, your sister or your friend, the chances are you have a gamer in your life, which is why we've put our thinking hats on and compiled the best list of funny gift ideas for gamers, no matter who they are or what games they love.
A recent study revealed that 3.1 billion people now game on devices ranging from mobile phones, consoles and PCs. That's 40 per cent of the world's population.
There's a good reason for it too, while a small minority play games professionally, for the rest of us mere mortals, it provides a form of escapism that even the best films cannot compete with.
Whereas original video games were focussed on high scores and level after level of repetition (we're looking at you Space Invaders), games in 2021 are different animals altogether.
Gamers now have almost unlimited possibilities when they boot up their console, phone or PC. Getting lost in a distant Utopia, mowing down legions of zombies or developing your little island with adorable creatures are just a few clicks of a mouse or presses of a controller away, which has contributed to gaming becoming not only the most popular form of entertainment but also the most profitable.
But whilst we could go on about why games are great, let's get down to it. Here are 6 funny gift ideas for gamers.
Men's gaming hoodies
Whether it's that first win on Call of Duty Warzone, finally vanquishing the Flamelurker in Demon's Soul or reaching the Animal Crossing promised land and getting the approval of Tom Nook, that victorious moment is something every gamer craves and it’s a moment that should be celebrated and what better way than making sure they are dressed for the occasion.
A hoodie is one of the top choices for gamers and our collection will help the gamer in your life really show off their personality, whether they’re a rage quitter, a boasting gaming legend (or at least they think they are) or they’re an old school gamer that likes to take things offline with a good game of Dungeons and Dragons.
Check out some of our best selling gaming hoodies that we love below:
Mens gaming t-shirts
If you’ve got a gamer in your life who gets a little hot under the collar then maybe a hoodie isn’t such a good idea. After all, most gamers get sweaty palms when they take on a challenging boss or long multiplayer session online, the last thing they want to be worrying about is sweaty pitts too!
But don’t worry, we think of everything here at Vectorbomb, and we’ve got you covered with some top t-shirts that are guaranteed to bring a smile out of any gamer in the know, even if they just got a game over.
Men’s gamer mugs
Has the gamer in your life already got a bulging wardrobe? Don’t worry, there’s plenty left in our gamer’s paradise. Whether it’s a vessel to carry a zesty beverage to help them power through the streets of Night City in Cyberpunk 2077 or a cup of hot coco to soothe their fragile ego after yet another loss on FIFA (which absolutely, definitely wasn’t their fault!) every gamer, whether new or seasoned needs a gaming mug.
Here are some of our favourites that any gamer will love.
