Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for your Lady Gamer
Rumor has it that some men (and women) find the holiday shopping season to be a little daunting. I’ve also heard that the men folk, most typically, like to leave the daunting task of shopping until the last few panicked-filled days before the big deadline. Well guys, I hear ya! Procrastination is as common and the flu this time of year (something else you are likely to bring home with you from the mall. Yuck!). But there may be one small hitch in your plan kids. If you happen to be shopping for a lady gamer this season chances are your shopping efforts will be far more successful if done online. And, guess what, now is the right time to get surfing for that perfect lady gamer gift.
So you want to get your lady gamer friend, girlfriend, or significant other a kickin game related gift that goes beyond the newest titles? That’s fine. Remember that the games themselves always make a great gift, as do gift cards to game stores, points cards for PSN or Steam, subscription cards for XBL, and the accessories that every gamer eventually collects and uses (personalized controllers, new headsets, etc). But if you are looking for something a little extraordinary, but still thematic, then read on!
Don’t worry guys and gals, I won’t leave you in the lurch. I have compiled some of the best gifts on the ‘net’ for your lady gamers. Take a look at some of the gift ideas that any lady gamer on your list would be happy to receive!
