Finally, we are starting to move away from the old stereotype of the gamer as an overweight, acne scarred male, living with their parents and only able to communicate by a series of grunts or obscure references to games that only another gamer would understand. Now, you may not believe that video games are ‘the most rapidly evolving medium in history’ but you have to admit that there’s an awful lot of different types of people who enjoy gaming. So, whether the gamer in your life is hardcore, retro, pro, noob or just casual, why not gift them something they’ll enjoy and let them know that you, at least, no longer believe that video games are the tools of the devil.
LED colour changing strip lights
Bring a little Las Vegas into their gaming den with these Govee LED strip lights. These two rolls of 5m strips contain around 300 lights in 16 different colours and you’ve got 6 colour DIY options as well to enable your gamer to create exactly the right mood for their game. The lights can be controlled in two ways, either using the remote, which has a range of up to 10m, or by the control box which enables you to switch on and off and adjust brightness and colour. There are six levels of brightness and if you’re worried about replacing bulbs, then don’t, because these babies should run for around 50,000 hours and that’s a lot of gaming. This kit also comes with 3m of adhesive strip which can be cut and stuck to any flat surface, giving plenty of coverage for even the most spacious gaming den.
