Finding the best gifts for gamers can be tricky, especially if you're not much of a gamer yourself. But there is a plus side. Namely, you've got a huge range of items to choose from - and some of them are very affordable indeed. 

That's because the best gaming gifts don't just include games or particularly pun-ny mugs; headsets, bonus controllers, books, toys, SSDs, and merchandise are all good options for anyone hunting down present suggestions. So long as you know what the recipient plays on, there's no shortage of options when it comes to gifts for gamers.

To get the ball rolling, we've scooped up some recommendations that span cheap and cheerful novelties to more premium presents. Seeing as that includes gifts for gamers on PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo, PC, and tabletop, there should be something suitable for almost everyone below. Just a quick word of warning, though: if you're hoping to surprise a loved one with a new console, be warned that PS5 restock and Xbox Series X restock deals are rare (even Nintendo Switch bundles are hard to come by). Check in with our guides for the lowdown on where - and when - to look.

UK price: From £19.95 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Super Mario Mushroom light | £18.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Super Mario Mushroom light | £18.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
There are plenty of cool gifts for gamers out there, but few hit the spot quite like something that lights up.

It's a fun collectible that's a good way of putting your gamer-cred on show.

PlayStation 5 glass tumbler | $12.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

PlayStation 5 glass tumbler | $12.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Here's another surprisingly classy gift for gamers: a very sleek, minimalist PlayStation 5 tumbler.

However, be sure you're just handwashing it rather than putting it in the dishwasher.

UK price: £7.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

| $14.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

I Paused my Game to be Here t-shirt | $14.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
As with gamer mugs, t-shirts can be a bit hit-and-miss on the whole... but there are some great options out there if you take the time to look. Buried beneath the tees with questionable slogans is this one, and it's a fun option as a gift for gamers (particularly because it comes with fits for men, women, and children). Want a broader range to choose from? Browse the different gaming t-shirts available at Amazon (opens in new tab).

PlayStation Gold Controller mug | $15.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

PlayStation Gold Controller mug | $15.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
While this is definitely an acquired taste (it is very shiny), it's an inspired novelty gift for the avid PlayStation gamer. Make sure they handwash it after use, though - mugs like this often don't play well with dishwashers, and they can cause the paint to peel. If that sounds like too much of a faff, check for more mug options at Amazon (opens in new tab).

UK price: The gold version's unavailable in the UK, but you can get the same mug in black at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Checkpoint: How Video Games Power Up Minds, Kick Ass, and Save Lives | $15.92 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Checkpoint: How Video Games Power Up Minds, Kick Ass, and Save Lives | $15.92 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
GamesRadar's very own Joe Donnelly (our Features Writer) wrote a book about the positive power of video games before he joined us, and it's an affirming read that challenges common narratives of the medium being harmful. Although we understand any hesitance because we're recommending a colleague's work, positive reviews from the likes of BBC Scotland demonstrate how poignant it can be.

UK: £5.01 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Animal Crossing heat-changing | $13.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Animal Crossing heat-changing | $13.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Haxtec Antique Iron D&D Metal Dice| $19.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Haxtec Antique Iron D&D Metal Dice| $19.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
One thing every D&D gamer needs is more dice. They're like socks; you can never have enough of them. While metal dice are a dime a dozen online, these are some of our favorites. They have a great heft to them and are very good-looking (almost as if they've been pulled out of a ye olde treasure chest). Go careful when rolling these on a softwood table though, as they'll potentially leave a mark.

UK price: £14.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Choose Your Weapon t-shirt | From $8.86 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Minecraft Creeper glass tumbler | $12.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Got a Minecraft-obsessed fan at home? This is a spot-on gift for gamers that will really suit them. Recreating the design of the classic (and literally explosive) Creeper baddie on a 414ml glass, it's a cheap but very cool present. As always, though, be careful when washing this one - a trip through the dishwasher will often strip off the paint.

UK price: £9.09 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Super Mario plush toy | £13.84 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Super Mario plush toy | £13.84 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

PlayStation 5 heat-changing mug | $14.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
We've got a lot of time for this particular gift for gamers; besides having a cool heat-changing effect that brings the iconic PlayStation pattern into focus, it's pretty subtle so far as gaming mugs go. As always, though, this is strictly handwash only. If that doesn't suit you, be sure to have a browse through the other gamer mugs at Amazon (opens in new tab).

UK price: £9.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

If the gamer in question loves Dungeons & Dragons books (opens in new tab) (also known as D&D), these very cute soft toys are a superb choice. Besides recreating some of the most iconic creatures from the game, these plushies are really well made; we went hands-on with some and their quality (from downy fur to some posable limbs) impressed us.

UK price: Currently unavailable

Xbox heat-changing mug | $13.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)

Xbox heat-changing mug | $13.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
