Gift ideas that have a certain X-factor.
The holidays have snuck up on us again, and it’s time to hunt down the perfect gifts for your family and friends. If you’re shopping for an Xbox player this holiday season, you’ve come to the right place, because we’ve got a roundup of the must-haves.
The Top 3 Must-Have Xbox Gifts
Though it arrived over a year ago, the Xbox Series X is incredibly difficult to catch in the wild. Probably because it’s the most powerful Xbox ever, and along with Xbox Game Pass, the Xbox player you’re shopping for will basically never run out of games to play.
Xbox Series X
The Xbox Series X is the fastest, most powerful Xbox ever. Play thousands of titles from four generations of consoles – all games look and play best on Xbox Series X.
Xbox Series S
The S offers plenty of present-day value considering it only costs $500. It’s limited to 1440p resolution and has small storage space, but it’s tiny and quiet, with snappy load times, and can play games at 120 frames per second if your TV’s up to it.
Best Xbox Games Gifts
While many of Xbox’s best games are on Game Pass, a lot of them still need to be bought separately. Here are the one’s I’d beeline towards first.
Best Xbox Clothing and Collectables Gifts
If you’re not sure what games the Xbox fan in your life already has, you could consider getting them a piece of Xbox clothing or a collectible they can display.
Best Extra Controllers
When you own an Xbox Series S or X, life is grand — but with peripherals it can be grander!
Xbox Series X/S Wireless Controller
The Wireless Controller for Xbox Series X and S isn’t so much a “next-gen” controller as it is an incremental update on an ol’ faithful. It’s flush with small tweaks that improve specific elements, like recording gameplay, using the D-pad, and grip.
Xbox Series X/S Wireless Controller – Electric Volt
Inspired by the energy and vibrance often found in athletic apparel and sneaker design, the Xbox Wireless Controller – Electric Volt takes it up a notch with a high-energy, yellow resin not yet seen on Xbox hardware.
Xbox Series X/S Wireless Controller – Pulse Red
The Pulse Red features all of the same controller innovations introduced with the launch of Xbox’s next-gen console, such as a USB-C port and a dedicated Share button. That said — and maybe don’t quote us on this — we suspect it goes faster in some way.
Xbox Series X/S Wireless Controller – Shock Blue
Stay on target with a hybrid D-pad and textured grip on the triggers, bumpers, and back case. Seamlessly capture and share content such as screenshots, recordings, and more with the new Share button. Oh, and it’s blue (da ba dee da ba daa…)
Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel
This is comprehensive equipment for all racing situations, with 2 paddle shifters, 9 action buttons, 1 Manettino, 1 D-Pad and 1 Xbox Guide button.
Logitech G920 Driving Force Racing Wheel
The G920 is engineered with dual-motor force feedback that is designed to realistically simulate the feel of your car and tyres on every turn and type of terrain so you can sense under or oversteer, drifting and more. Excellent build quality, too.
