Perfect Gifts for Music Lovers

For the Vinyl Junkie

With vinyl record sales rising over the last few years, odds are that there’s an old-school vinyl fan in your life. Between new bands releasing music on vinyl, and old classics getting polished up with new mastering technologies, music lovers of all ages are hopping onto the vinyl bandwagon. If you don’t have the money to buy a new record player, a record can be a nice gift. Online marketplaces, records shops and special flea markets offer a great variety of old and new vinyl records for little money.

For Those on the Move

Wireless headphones allow the listeners to cut the cord, avoid cable clutter and experience the freedom of listing to their favorite music on the go. This experience is perfect for everybody with a busy lifestyle – like students on their way to university or business travelers. The handiest BT headphones are equipped with a microphone and multi-function controls allowing users to answer calls and manage their music with ease.

For Listening at Home

If your friends and family members don’t use headphones, but still love music, a new speaker for their tablet or smartphone can be the perfect gift. The new speakers come with a surprising punch for their small size and have a great battery life. You can get the speakers equipped with either a robust Bluetooth connectivity or an auxiliary 3.5 mm jack to connect older devices. On the most current Bluetooth speaker versions, you can also expect built-in track controls and speakerphone calling.

Make a Present to Your Loved Ones – The Gift Guide for Gamers

It’s getting colder. It already smells like Xmas cookies and the city is decorated with lights and ornaments – it’s holiday season! And that means it’s also time to start thinking about gifts for people you care about. For some of them it can be a pain to find the right present. But if you have some gaming fans and PC enthusiasts on your shopping list, you don’t have to look any further for the best gifts – just use some ideas from our gift guide for gamers.

Merch – Show Your Love for Your Favorite Games

Plushies, action figures, backpacks, shirts and mugs – there is a never ending list of cool merchandise for all kind of PC games.  If your budget is a little tight, you can do nothing wrong with a fan article of your loved one’s favorite PC game. Sure, it won’t expand his gaming repertoire or enhance his playing experience, but it will definitely conjure a smile on his face.  Also, there are some cool fan articles and merchandise that are also quite handy. A cool and colorful Pacman lamp will brighten up the day every time it’s turned on. And thanks to a cool hoodie or jumper with a game logo or nice geeky quote on it, there is no feeling cold during winter days.

Let Your PC Stay Cool as a Winter Day

PC gaming systems develop quite some heat. If you don’t want to hear your gamer friend complaining about it, a cooling solution can be a nice idea for a Xmas gift. Try to find out which component he wants to save from overheating.  Also ask which brand he has for his graphics card and CPU to get a compatible cooler. Also it’s good to know whether he prefers air cooling, water cooling or perhaps a hybrid model. No matter how small or great your budget is, you will find a compatible solution. And one thing is for sure – a new CPU or GPU cooler will be his highlight for Xmas.

Best View and Best Sound

For the best gaming experience, a good gaming headset and an ideal monitor setup are important. You surely can make a gamer happy with a new and stylish headset. Here, it’s a nice idea to select one with a design that reflects his gaming preference. E. g. for military games, a gaming headset camouflage design is a nice idea. You could also look for a headset in his favorite color.
To get the best overview while playing a video game, two or even three monitors are the best. To set them up, monitor arms are a good option. If the monitor arm also has a USB hub, the gamer can easily plug in his keyboard, mouse or even a desktop fan to stay cool during the excitement of gaming.

You want to get your gamer friend away from his PC? You try to share his love for video games, but don’t get the hang of it? Present him with a board game version of his favorite PC game on Xmas. From World of Warcraft over Starcraft to the Zelda themed Monopoly – there are lots of different parlor games that are based on video games.
