    1. A sticker that'll speak directly to your tendencies to divert from a game's outlined tasks because you want to see what other shenanigans you can get into. The sentiment can also apply to your habit of leaving dishes in your sink for days because you were too distracted by Netflix. Oops.

    3. A download of The Sims 4, a game that ages just as you do — like a fine wine. Maybe as a kid you used it to destroy relationships, but *now* in your 30s you can use it to plan how you want to decorate your actual house. BEST👏GAME👏EVER👏.

    thesims / Via instagram.com, The Sims / EA Games

    To know The Sims is to love The Sims. You can spend hours (days? weeks?) building your perfect home before even thinking about interacting with your character. I'm a longtime fan of this game and, honestly, can't think of a better program to play for a long period of time. The best part about this game is you can truly make it whatever you want! Want to make your Sim have 100 babies? Sure, why not? Or maybe you want to create Barbie and level up every single career and skill option. The Sim world is your oyster.

    4. A mini tower with 10 outlets that'll act as a battery backup so you'll never lose all the progress you made building said home on The Sims.

    the tower
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I am the proud owner of three of these (so far). They're quiet when on AC power. They have great customization. I've muted the beeps and warnings so if the power kicks off, they just take over without distracting me further. I LOVE the two front USB plugs. I charge devices from them all the time. The LED screen is off by default until you press a button, so other than the dimly lit power button on the front, there's no distracting lights or sounds under normal use on AC power. So, how well do they work? Well, I've owned a lot of UPSes. These are by far much quieter than any I've purchased from APC. They have a true sine wave output (which is amazing!), and the 1500VA is perfect for most electronics. The front screen will tell you how much of a load you have plugged in and even an estimate for how long the unit should run given that load if you lost power. So, no surprises!" —Ramze

    Get it from Amazon for $135.95+ (available in four styles).

    5. A splurge-worthy mouse designed for serious esports gaming with special features — it's extremely lightweight, has programmable RGB lights, and is ambidextrous.

    Glorious

    As my husband says, this mouse is "the best you can get for the money." Enough said.

    Promising review: "The model D is everything you could ever want. If you want a lighter mouse to get those easier flicks this is for you. One thing you need to know is that this mouse is an ergonomic mouse. That means this is for fingertip players. If you play claw while gaming this might not be for you." —Rowan

    Get it from Glorious for $49.99 (available in two styles).

    6. An HDMI splitter, so you won't need to fumble with any cables when you want to switch between your PS4 or Xbox.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    With a single click any gamer will be able to cycle through two different devices without having to unplug ANYTHING. Convenience is key, people.

    Promising review: "I purchased this splitter for use with my television and a PlayStation Vita TV console and Nintendo Wii U console. I ran out of ports, so a splitter seemed to be the perfect solution, much better than unplugging devices every time I needed to switch. This product is simple to use: plug the two sources into one side and the output location in the other, and you're done! It can also be used to split one device to two locations, like displaying a video game or television show on two different monitors. There is a small button you press in the center of the splitter to switch between the output selections. The video quality was good on the display even though it is going through the splitter. Overall, I highly recommend this product to anyone who runs out of HDMI ports on their television. I didn't find any flaws with the product. 5/5 stars." —Zero Ehxe

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    7. A Nintendo Switch or Nintendo Switch Lite to help you kick back and relax after a long day — it's about time you got on the Animal Crossing bandwagon (it's certainly not just for kids).

    nintendo switch lite in yellow, gray, blue, and pink
    Nintendo

    When I tell you my Nintendo Switch Lite and my husband's Nintendo Switch has been a true game-changer in keeping us both entertained over the last year I wholeheartedly mean it. From spending hours upon hours building a 5-star island on Animal Crossing: New Horizons and adventuring in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to breaking a sweat playing Fit Boxing 2 and exploring the beautiful world in Ori and The Will of The Wisps, there really isn't anything you can't do on a Nintendo Switch device.

    Promising review: "The Switch is Nintendo's best device since the N64. I use my Switch every day. I commute by train so this has been perfect for me. There has never been a handheld this good. The transition to and from docked mode is seamless. The battery life is also pretty decent. Overall, it is a great device. Nintendo's back!" —Arjun S. Kahlon

    Get it from Amazon: Nintendo Switch for $409.99+ (available in six styles), Nintendo Switch Lite for $199.99 (available in four styles and storage options).

    8. And a steering wheel accessory for the Nintendo Switch that'll make you feel like a real racer and be a bit more supportive for your hands so you can truly crush all the kiddos in your life who *think* they have what it takes to be a Mario Kart Champion. Psh.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this after watching a review on YouTube. This item allows my wife that has arthritis to play and enjoy Mario Kart. Normal controllers hurt her hands but the motion control and these wheels make the game enjoyable to play for her. The paddle buttons on top of the unit work very well." —Charles C Coogler III

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (also available in a set of four and two color styles).

    9. A bag of Death Wish coffee if you're looking to stay up all night (or possibly forever?) playing video games.

    Amazon

    Looking for some serious caffeine? These beans are the answer. Known for being the world's strongest coffee, a cup of this is SURE to get you going. Over 11K Amazon customers have given this coffee a 5-star rating, so grab a mug and let's do this!

    Promising review: "Do you have deadlines to meet with work or school? Are you trying to play Skyrim all the way through in one sitting? Death Wish Coffee is what you're in search of. The aroma of the beans as they're being processed and pressed and brewed is addicting in itself. The taste is pure bliss and the charge you instantly feel, must feel like freedom. This must have what the signatories of the Declaration of Independence felt when succeeding from the British! Freedom and power and energy running straight thru their veins in pure constitutional bliss." —Andrew Wilson

    Get it a 1lb bag from Amazon for $19.95+ (also available in 2lb and 5lb bags and in medium and dark roasts).

    Check out our deep dive on Death Wish Coffee.

    10. And a "koffee" mug you won't be able to resist showing off in your next Zoom meeting — even the Gary of your coworkers might just crack a smile at this perfect Pokémon pun.

    Get it from SuperiorStreetStudio on Etsy for $13.99+ (available in two sizes).

    11. A microphone to provide crystal clear audio if you're a gamer who moonlights as a YouTuber, streaming your gameplay for all to see. Who knows — maybe this'll be your ticket to internet fame!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love, love, love it!!! I purchased this microphone when I upgraded from a laptop to a desktop gaming console (which did not have a built-in microphone like my laptop did). I needed this microphone for gaming and video editing purposes. My main concern from other reviews was that I would not have a crystal clear voice unless I was very close to the microphone. This is NOT true. I sit comfortably in my chair, a good two feet away from the mic and people online say my voice sounds crystal clear!!! I even tested playing music in the background while talking and my friend could not hear any background noise! Amazing!" —Brandon

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in black and white).

    12. A coffee table book about the history of Hyrule, you'll probably consider spending all of your rupees to get your hands on it.

    Amazon

    I gifted this coffee table book to my husband a few years ago and it's still one of his most prized possessions. It is filled with the history of Link's adventures as told by the creators of the game — it's a wonderful addition to any gamer's collection.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.49 or Bookshop for $36.79.

    13. Or a Zelda enamel pin, also known as the most appropriate accessory for any fan of the classic game. You can pop it into your denim jacket and wait to see which other adults give you a knowing head nod when you walk past.

    PinLemonade / Etsy

    Anyone familiar with the game will easily recognize the "You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?" quote on this pin. It's pretty in pink, sports the ever-popular Happy Mask Salesman from the Zelda game, and will certainly be a conversation starter for fellow gamers once you pins this to your bag or jacket. PinLemonade is a small business based in Brownsville, Texas that sells an array of pop culture–inspired pins.

    Get it from PinLemonade on Etsy for $9+ (available in three styles).

    14. A deck of Fallout playing cards to keep you company while you attempt to survive in the aftermath of a virtual nuclear war ... or, like, when you decide to take a break from staring at your screens.

    a model holding up four of the cards
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These are so cool! I thought they were just regular cards with a fallout theme but each card is actually a different 'perk' from Fallout 4. My husband LOVED it." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99.

    15. A nostalgic set of Nintendo 64 coasters featuring drinking puns that won't need to be blown on in order to function correctly.

    Amazon

    Those were the days, amiright? CuttingBoredom is a small business based out of San Diego that sells punny home and kitchen products.

    Promising review: "The moment I opened the package and saw these I was blown away. The detailing and woodwork is beyond my expectations. I am seriously in love with these. A must-have!" —Jennifer Freese

    Get them from CuttingBoredom on Etsy for $20+ (available in sets of two, four, or six and in six styles)

    16. A 4-foot Street Fighter arcade machine to help you achieve your childhood dreams of owning an arcade — only you can do it from the comfort of your own home.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    I have one of these and it's been SO fun to play with. My husband and I love challenging each other and feeling like we're in an old school arcade. It's a great size for an at-home arcade machine, not too big or too small.

    Promising review: "I always was terrible at this game, but my friends loved it. I saw the sale and bought it immediately. Assembly was a breeze, plugged it in, and works just fine. Solid sound, no glitches, no issues whatsoever. Even perfecting my moves. I'm not a professional gamer or anything, so I have no problem with the joysticks or buttons, but I can see how some may. My kids love it. For the price, and excitement, well worth it. Thanks Arcade1Up!" —Mo

    Get it from Amazon for $489.

    17. A Dungeons and Dragons essentials kit to help you expand your skills beyond screens and prepare to have creative control over all of your friends as Dungeon Master. This is not just a thing the kids from Stranger Things like — celebs like Joe Manganiello and Vin Diesel are really serious about it.

    the full set of dungeons and dragons starter kit
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Honestly, this kit is what the original starter kit should have been. The story is easier to follow for a newer DM. The adventure is a lot more streamlined. The breakdown of character creation is amazing and simplified. It doesn't just toss you some generic character that you have no connection to. It simplifies character creation and allows you to ease into more complicated characters later on. The cards that come with this kit are something I wish I had when I first started. They help with initiative, conditions, and the sidekick cards and magic item cards are awesome. I would recommend this kit over the original to any person wanting to start playing DnD." —Bryan

    Get it from Amazon for $15.59.

    If you're already a seasoned DnD pro, you should totally check out an expansion like Tasha's Cauldron of Everything for a new adventure.

    18. Or a themed tank, perfect if you're too lazy (or busy working a full time job or taking care of your kids) to start up your own game of DnD and prefer to follow along with the Mighty Nein's adventures in Critical Role (guilty).

    a blue muscle tank with a muscular character on it and "swoleregard's gym" on it
    Critical Role

    Here's to you, Marisha Ray.

    My husband and I have been dyyyyying to get our own game going but it's been a little difficult to start from scratch and get a group together in a safe space. So, to fill the void we've watched hours (and hours) of Critical Role — a YouTube series starring an array of talented voice actors who happen to be playing a very, very long Dungeons and Dragons campaign. It's fantastic. So fantastic, once you start you'll likely want to buy merch.

    Get it from Shop Critical Role for $24.99 (available in unisex sizes XS–XL).

    19. A 1,000-piece video game-themed puzzle to give your significant other a good reason to step away from the video games and bond with you.

    the puzzle that shows a pile of video games and systems
    Amazon

    Promising review: "If you (or anyone you know) loves video games THIS is the perfect puzzle to get. It's got great color and the size is large after completing it. It's fun piecing together old games and consoles from your younger days. Sometimes puzzles get frustrating...but I felt like I couldn't pull myself away from this one. It didn't take me long to piece it together and now I plan to glue it and hang it in my arcade room. Definitely worth it!" —C. Leonard

    Get it from Amazon for $17.50.

    20. A ceramic Bulbasaur planter any Pokémon lover will adore since it's handmade, super cute, and certainly won't ~succ~.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Whether you typically choose Bulbasaur as their starting Pokémon or go another route with Squirtle or Charmander, as a fan of the game (and show, of course) you are certain to gush over this lil' planter.

    Promising review: "Cute! Hand-sized, with enough room to hold a succulent. Paint pens could complete the Bulbasaur look, but we like the subtleness of this that true Pokemon fans pick up on when they see it. It whispers, 'Underneath all this glitz and glam you see, I'm a nerd at heart. But a stylish nerd who understands that sometimes subtle is better.'" —Vivi Pirroni

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    21. A Kingdom Hearts Talisman board game for you and your best friend who have been playing the video game version together since it came out in 2002.

    Amazon

    Game night is about to get a whooooole lot more magical.

    Promising review: "Such a great game! I have never played Talisman before and so I thought this might be really complicated to learn to play. While there are a lot of elements to gameplay, I found that the instructions make it relatively easy to start to get the hang of it! Once you start playing, it all starts to make sense. It is so much fun to play and the board is beautiful! It also shipped quickly which I appreciated. All pieces came and were not broken! It is a bit of an investment, but absolutely worth it! It is very fun!" —Faith

    Get it from Amazon for $41.49.

    22. An Oregon Trail enamel pin that'll transport you back in time to the days you spent hunched over a clunky PC trying to keep you and your ox alive while forging across a river.

    23. A carrying case to keep your Switch protected when it's not sitting in the charger and to prove to yourself you are, in fact, a responsible adult who takes care of their belongings.

    a model taking their switch out of the simple black carrying case
    Amazon

    My husband has this case and is a big fan — it's super convenient when traveling, as it has a spot to store all the essentials you need for Switch gaming.

    Promising review: "Great to carry around your Switch without fear of damage. I have a USB-C cable, Samsung power adapter, HDMI cable (6ft), Joycon wrist straps, and the FastSnail HDMI Type C Hub Adapter so I can play on the big screen. I think I can fit one more pair of Joycons (and straps) so i can get 4 player Mario Cart. With all that stuff in this case, there is little to no pressure on the Switch. But you can't just throw it all in, you need to purposefully place the items to make sure there is no pressure on the screen or joysticks." —DanA

    Get it from Amazon for $13.96+ (available in 10 colors).

    24. A Twitch hoodie you can wear to represent your favorite place to watch folks like Summit1g and TimTheTatman.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Great and simple design of Twitch logo. A little too snug around my arms (I’m a little more built but even in XL it’s kind of tight from the elbow to wrist). Appealing and stylish color of pastel pink is a great aesthetic to try to incorporate into your style." —Carlo

    Get it from Amazon for $45 (available in unisex sizes XS–3XL).

    25. A 24-inch curved monitor that'll make you feel like you've left your boring corner of the house and immersed yourself right into the world of your favorite game.

    the curved monitor
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This 24-inch curved VA panel looks really good after playing with the colors and settings. Buttery smooth 144Hz is yours on either the DP (cable included) or HDMI 2.0 and it is amazing just like everyone says. The logo on the back glows red and the system menu is OK but not bad. The stand is very sturdy and has a good snug tilting mechanism. The bezels are a tad wider than your led to believe but still not bad. It does have speakers but they are not great. There is only one screen protector and it peels off very easy. The other layer is the anti-glare layer. Everything but the stand is plastic but if $159 gets you a clean 24-inch curved, 144Hz, 3ms, egde design, VA panel in a solid package then this is worth plugging into any budget gaming build." —Steven

    Get it from Amazon for $289.47.

    26. A Cana Kit Raspberry Pi, so you'll finally be able to build your own mini computer — at this age you've finally got the knowledge and the funds to do it!

    all the pieces needed to build the tiny computer
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a fantastic little kit! Great transparent case that's easy to install the Pi into, and it looks quite awesome! Heatsinks are well-made and very easy to install, power cable is absolutely needed and excellent quality. I also love the included documentation and diagrams — very, very helpful! I would recommend this kit to anyone starting off with their first Raspberry Pi." —Ren Cosmo

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    27. A pair of blue-light-blocking glasses, because if you're gaming as much as I think you are you should definitely have a pair of these to help prevent eye strain.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These glasses are perfect for working on the computer, playing videos games, and even watching movies! I love the pale pink color, they’re very feminine and fit my face just like I’d hoped. I recommend them for anyone that spends time on phones or computers" —Kelly Stagg

    Get them from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in 13 styles).

    28. A splurge-worthy gaming chair co-designed by Herman Miller and Logitech, so incredible you won't know how you ever lived without it — it was literally designed with science-backed ergonomics to ensure you'll experience the utmost comfort while sitting it in for hours (and hours, if we're being honest).

    Herman Miller, logitechg / Via instagram.com

    My husband had been complaining about back pain and his tendencies to slip into terrible posture habits while sitting at his desk. Now that he's working from home he's spending even MORE time in his computer chair (seriously like...13+ hours a day including working and gaming) which makes the investment in a serious chair feel a bit more justified. Since getting this chair he feels like he's sitting up straighter and not feeling stiff by the end of the day. He is forever talking about how comfortable this chair is and how much more his back feels supported since switching from his old chair. This chair is pricey but if you're someone who spends a lot of time sitting at a desk (like many of us these days) it's definitely worth it.

    Get it from Herman Miller for $1,595 (available in two colors).

    29. Or a heated massager pillow you can add to your current computer chair to loosen up the knots you've acquired from sitting there far too long.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I just received this and I LOVE it. It adequately relieved the knots in my neck, the base of my skull, and my legs. I'm going to try my feet also. I've been wanting something like this for quite some time and I'm thrilled with this product. This item definitely delivers. I highly recommend it. The price for this item given the relief provided is wonderful." —Stephanie T.

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95.

    30. A HyperX gaming keyboard that features a customizable rainbow backlight and that'll make anyone say, "Ooooh!"

    a reviewer's backlit rainbow keyboard
    amazon.com

    My husband is the real gamer in this family (I dabble, OK?) and he loves his HyperX Alloy keyboard. The brand allows you to choose which kind of key switch you prefer to game with — for lack of a better term, this is a game changer. The red switches are more linear, the aqua switches are more tactile, and the blue switches are more click-y. You can learn more about all of the switch options here.

    Promising review: "I had no idea a keyboard could be this amazing. Disclaimer, yes I'm a first time mechanical user switching from a standard Logitech membrane. I tried this HyperX board next. And wow! The typing feels like nothing I've ever experienced. I got the aqua switches. The software opens and is pretty much self explanatory. I already started making macros for Photoshop and making certain keys different colors so they stand out. And one more 'wow' for the brightness and clarity. This is so awesome. I'm hooked." —David Soumis

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99+ (available in three sizes and three types of key switches).

    31. And HyperX's Cloud II gaming headset, so you can continue to defend your honor while playing Among Us with your friends, who *always* say you're acting sus (and for good reason because, joke's on them, you actually ARE the imposter).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This headset is honestly the best for the price. Yeah, it may not have 'fancy' little lights or anything like that too flashy but these guys PERFORM! I've had mine for over a year and they're as good as day one. They hold up well to wear and tear, they still look new after a year of them being used just about every day. These are amazing, you can hear so well, the sound is crisp and clear. The mic picks up great too. One of my favorite things is that if you're in a room with other people they won't be heard through the other end unless they're shouting or are really loud. These have reallyyyy good noise canceling. I'd buy the same exact headset if my headset ever gave out." —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $86.81+ (available in two colors).

    32. Cable clips to attach to your many charging wires to finally form a manageable system that won't have you fumbling to untangle cords every time you want to charge your phone or another device.

    the cable clips with a wire in between
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I used these to stick to the side of a table in my gaming room. I got tired of picking up charging cables off the floor in a tangled mess. Now I just reach over, grab the correct charging cable and plug in my phone, controller, etc. All nice and neat." —IssysDad

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $5.95.

    33. Or a double extension cord so you can run an endless amount of power throughout your home without trying to track down another outlet.

    the extension cord
    Amazon

    Each cord is six feet long and has three available plugs.

    Promising review: "I have no idea why these are not sold everywhere. PERFECT for my room! I ended up getting this due to my king size bed being against a wall with only one outlet. I needed a way to connect my two lamps on my nightstand and this is absolutely, without a doubt, the very best solution to connecting my lamps and also not having all my outlets taken up. I recommend this to everyone! Also perfect for outlets connected to a switch to turn on and off both lights at the same time." —Ryan

    Get it from Amazon for $15.96 (available in two colors).

    34. A Microsoft Surface Book 3, because it's essentially a tablet and a computer mixed into one gadget that'll truly blow your mind.

    the silver surface book laptop with the screen detached
    Microsoft

    There are so many things you need to know about this gadget that I barely know where to start! I've been using it for the last few weeks and, despite being a loyal Mac user, I really love it. The charger itself has a USB port in it, so you'll never have to scour for multiple outlets or choose between your two devices when your phone inevitably starts to die. The screen can literally be detached and used as a touchscreen — which is pretty awesome for anyone looking to take notes on the go or wants to draw with the tablet in their lap. I've been using it to play The Sims; aka my greatest test for any computer. The fact I can play it without the computer fully blowing up or canceling the game on me is something I haven't been able to enjoy in years. My husband, who I've mentioned is a bit of a gaming nerd (sorry, Paul) was so impressed by the clarity and specs on the screen. If you're in need of a computer upgrade, consider this one.

    Get it from Amazon for $1,699+ or Microsoft for $899.99+ (available in 13 or 15 inches and four internal storage options).

    35. A Lego version of the classic Nintendo system you likely had as a kid — now you can build it (dare I say, with your kid?) and display it in your office proudly.

    the lego NES system next to a lego tv and game cartridge
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the first Lego set I have ever put together. I bought it because I grew up in the (now) retro video game age and thought this would be a really cool item to display in my home office. What an incredible piece of nostalgia! It took me two mostly full days to complete, which was actually a real pleasure to do. At first, I just wanted to get to the end to see the final product in person, but as I got lost in the moment putting it together, I actually wanted to slow down because it was so therapeutic I didn't want it to end. As others have mentioned, the item was shipped with no outside packaging, so if you are ordering this as a collector's item, I wouldn't do it through Amazon. But if, like me, you just want a really cool piece of nostalgia, I recommend this 100%." —Norcalsurf

    Get it from Amazon for $229.95.

    36. And a 64-piece iFixit kit for when your most-used gadget gives out and you'd rather try to repair it yourself than buy a new one. Practical purchases that'll save you money in the long run?! You are an adult, after all!

    a reviewer holding a fix it kit

    My husband is admittedly a "gadget guy" and has one of these kits for as long as I can remember. He's a big fan of the brand and loves that every set comes with a lifetime warranty.

    Promising review: "Seriously, I have been repairing small electronics for decades now, over 30 dang years, and I will say this is probably the best deal and collection you can get for simple to even complicated repairs. It has a crapload of bits, but essentially everything you will need as opposed to the next larger offering, though I am still considering getting that for my dungeon downstairs. I keep this upstairs literally in the kitchen since a lot of impromptu repairs occur at the dining room table, but I have not been let down. This is top notch/quality material and manufacturing. It not only feels comfortable but is very strong and bits do not let go of screws. It has a great deal of bits too, 64 in fact. It pretty much covers all the phone and laptop screws you will encounter and even has some socket ones too. Nice touch." —Riboild

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.
