AVermedia Live Gamer Portable
A new contender in a market that has long been dominated by the likes of Elgato, the AVermedia Live Gamer Portable provides the easiest way of capturing video game footage yet, with it even foregoing the need for a PC thanks to a built-in SD card slot.
Providing the perfect solution for recording gameplay whenever, wherever, the portable device may not come with its own free video editing software, but it makes up for it by nullifying the need to have wires trailing throughout your home, as is necessary with the vast majority of capture cards. This ease-of-use also doesn't impact too much on its overall video quality, with it able to record in both 1080p and 720p at a steady 30fps, with it also capable of hitting that 60fps sweet spot if the recording resolution is capped at 720p. For those looking to get into the lucrative business of YouTube Let's Plays, this is the ideal gift.

The ostentatious design of the Razer Firefly mouse mat sounds ludicrous at first, what with the patented Chroma lighting surrounding its edges providing no other function than to simply make your gaming setup stand out that little bit extra. But when you take into account that PC rigs are often designed to be as eye-catching as possible, then the Razer Firefly will look a lot less needlessly superficial by comparison.
This large mouse mat features customizable lighting, along with optimized surface coating and a micro-textured finish to ensure smooth mouse movements and, by extension, responsive gameplay.

Its buttons are completely remappable, as you'd expect, though unlike its rivals it boasts around 40% higher accuracy than competitors within its price range. It also lights up which, if placed on a certain Chroma-lit mouse mat, would probably make your neighbors think a UFO had landed in your house.

Samsung M9T 2TB / Seagate Game Hard Drives
PS4 and Xbox One owners will know the pain of running out of storage space. While the console's 500GB of space may seem more than enough for a console, in reality even disc-based games have huge install sizes, not to mention the abundance of patches and DLC we're regularly downloading.
There are now 1TB versions of both consoles, but for the many who already own the systems, they're not going to want to buy a second PS4 or Xbox One for the sole purpose of the extra storage space. The best option, then, is to buy either the Samsung M9T hard drive for the PS4, or the Seagate Game Drive for the Xbox One.
Both offer a whopping 2TB of storage space and are easy to set up, install, and above all else transfer your current game data/downloads to. They're not the most exciting gift, but for those who find themselves having to delete old games in order to play new ones, they're essential.
