    1. A Razer Kraken gaming headset for playing with friends — or, if you're like me, for a fully immersive, surround sound gaming experience.

    A sleek headset, boasting high sound quality and "immersive bass"

    Promising review: "I love this headset!!! Not only is the sound quality great but it’s literally the most comfortable headset I’ve ever worn. I wore it for 13 hours straight with my glasses (which usually makes it more uncomfortable) and didn’t have any discomfort ever. The shade of pink is really cute too! And I love that the microphone is retractable and bendable. It’s definitely worth the price." —:)

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (prices vary based on color/style).

    2. A charging station for your controllers, *and* for the person looking to cut back on wires.

    Promising Review: "A lot of charging docks are stacked vertically but I wanted something low profile and simple looking; this was perfect in every aesthetic way. I hated having to dig the usb cable out of my entertainment stand to plug my controller in every day, charging is now as easy as setting my controller into the cradle." —Blessa

    Get it from Amazon for $16.49.

    3. An extra DualSense wireless controller for a little split screen fun with friends.

    Promising Review: "It is literally everything I want in a controller. Has a mic so you don't need a headset. Haptic feedback. You can blow wind on it and get boats to move because the pad has the sense to do it. The grip is mini playstation logos. SO COOL" —Ghsty

    Get it from Amazon for $69.96.

    4. And, a silicone case cover skins for your DualSense Controller, because, let's be honest our controllers can always use a little more support.

    Promising Review: "The gameplay is phenomenal and the graphics are beautiful. The story grabs you right from the beginning and keeps you entertained the whole way. The story is a bit shorter than Spider-Man PS4, but the game makes up for it in its unique and creative side missions, which are far from mundane and repetitive. As a Spider-Man/Miles Morales fan, my dreams came true with this game." —Elijah
