Tech Stuff
Chances are you haven’t been able to get your hands on a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Don’t worry! I’ve got you covered for fun gadgets and accessories for the video game lover in your life. 

Luminoodle Color Bias Lighting

Game in style! No matter what game system they have, they need a tv to play it! Give their gaming sessions a little more pizzaz! 

Game and Watch Super Mario Handheld System

Retro, compact, and fun! These mini hand helps are perfect for the on the go gamer. Put down the mobile phone games, and take it back old school. But act quickly! These babies keep selling out. 

Legend of Zelda Ocarina 

Give the gift of music, and cool game collectibles! This is an ocarina replica, that you can actually play! It comes with a song book, plus there are tons of easy to follow tutorials on YouTube.

Mini Sega Genesis

Just plug in, and play! These have been out for awhile, but are ALWAYS selling out. It comes with 40 preloaded games… including ALL the sonic the Hedgehog games!

Elgato Game Capture HD60 S

Have a wanna be game streamer? Then this is a must have. This little diddy allows you to plug your tv and game system straight into it, then stream to your computer! Perfect for aspiring Twitch content creators. 

Iron Man Wireless Charge Pad

Sure, charge pads are cool. But one that looks like Tony Stark’s arc reactor makes you REALLY feel like you’re in the next century. For the gamer that has all the smart devices! Or just likes super neat stuff. 

…. and of course extra controllers, charging cables, headsets, and protective carrying cases are always an easy, safe bet gift. Keep an eye out for the best controller and headset deals! Retailers usually knock at least $10 off sometime during the holiday season. Also any sort of merch from their favorite games! 

This year’s hottest games:

Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War, Last of Us 2, Pokémon Sword and Shield, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart Live Circuit, Watch Dogs 3, Assassins Creed Valhalla, Marvel’s Spiderman: Miles Morales, Marvel’s Avengers, Cyberpunk 2077 (releases 12/10), Doom Eternal, Madden NFL 21, NBA 2k21

Fashion

If someone has a set fashion sense, it can be intimidating to try and buy them something that they would like! This gift guide will have any fashionista on your gift list say ‘Yas queen!’

A new saddle bag

Saddle bag purses are ALWAYS in. Pick one thats the size and color your fashionista usually sports. 

Pair of sexy shades

Know the shape of their face? Then you can find the perfect pair of new shades. A perfect stocking stuffer. 

Bath Bombs and Skin Care

Beauty comes from within… and from good hygiene. One who takes pride in their looks, also takes pride in how they take care of themselves. Good soaps, lotions, bath bombs, and other goodies that help one spoil and pamper themselves are always welcome. A cool place with cool finds? Try out Lush! 

Accessories, Accessories, Accessories!

An outfit is only as good as the bits and baubles that adorn it. The best place to find everything you needed used to be Charming Charlie’s (RIP). But now you’ve got to be a bit more creative. Always check out the jewelry sections in department stores and shops. Take special care to notice the types of metals, gems, and semi precious stones the person that you are buying for likes to wear. 

These Boots were Made for Walking

Shoesss! My goodness yes. Shoes! And the cooler, more unique, the better. Vintage pumps and booties are coming back. The best places to get these guys are ModCloth, Unique Vintage and Irregular Choice. While you are there, check out some of the cool vintage clothing finds too! 

Don’t forget their favorite perfume, designer make up, or a new hat and scarf! 

The places for the best holiday deals, I have found, are: Macy’s, Ulta, HnM, Amazon and Target!
