A Gaming Chair
There are very few negatives of being a dedicated gamer, but one complaint that many gamers do share is a sore lower back caused by hours of hunching over their computer.

A Gaming Mouse
PC gaming with an ordinary mouse can prove to be a challenge, particularly if your mouse doesn’t respond as quickly as you do, or struggles to keep up with the complicated commands you make of it.
That’s why we think that a gaming mouse is such a great gift for a PC gamer: once you’ve used one you’ll never go back to an ordinary mouse again!
The Razer Naga gaming mouse is one of the best on the market. Not only does it offer exceptional gameplay, but it has also been ergonomically designed to follow the contours of your palms ensuring that, when you’re winning that next game, but you’re also doing it in comfort and style.
What do you do when you want to charge several devices at the same time? The problem is real, particularly for gamers who can’t bear to be parted from their favorite devices! Luckily, we have found a perfect solution!

A Real Wood Console Cover
Just because you’re a gamer doesn’t mean that you want ugly consoles and the clutter so often associated with them littered all over your house. Console covers are incredibly popular right now, and there is a wide range of them to choose from.
Some people choose brightly colored plastic covers, whilst others opt for high-shine metal versions. But if you’re looking for something chic and stylish that will integrate perfectly with your home décor then we recommend choosing a real wood console cover from Toast.

Each backpack is padded to offer ultimate protection for your equipment and also features several storage pockets so that you can take all those little extras (such as your favorite mouse or a change of clothes) along with you.
