Our next Christmas gift guide brings you a list of stocking fillers, with a range of ideal gifts to fill the stockings of your favourite video gamers this Christmas!
It would be impossible to list every video game keyring on this list - if we did, you would still be reading on Boxing Day! A few examples here are a limited edition Doom Cacodemon keyring by Fanatitik, a chrome metal PUBG frying pan keyring and Cyberpunk 2077 Samurai keyring, both by J!NX, and a Princess Peach pom pom keyring from Pyramid.
As with keyrings, there is a huge range of video game mugs available so we will take a look at some of the best on offer.
We start with GB Posters, who offer a wide selection of mugs including traditional style mugs, heat change mugs and also some excellent "3D" designs for games such as Fallout, Pokémon and Assassin's Creed.
If you're looking for a mug for a fan of classic games, then how about one of these; a Dr. Eggman mug from Sonic The Hedgehog, available from Half Moon Bay, or a retro style Super Mario Bros heat change mug from Pyramid.
Paladone have offered some great video game mugs over the years and their product rage currently includes some fantastic "3D" designs for games such as The Legend of Zelda, Crash Bandicoot and Minecraft.
In addition to mugs, there are plenty of other forms of drinkware on the market for video game fans. Some examples are this Call of Duty hip flask by Paladone, a set of miniature Resident Evil glasses by Half Moon Bay and a Read Dead Redemption shot glass available from Rockstar Games.
We always found pin badges to be a popular choice for gamers and there are plenty of options if this is something that tickles your fancy.
Insert Coin have a fantastic range of enamel pin badges available and also have an ongoing "3 for £20" offer on their website. Their range includes pins for games such as Dark Souls, Persona and Gears of War.
Fangamer also have some great pin badges on offer on their website, including pins for games such as Banjo & Kazooie and Silent Hill. Their Metal Gear Solid pins, in particular, are not to be missed!
Another great place to go for video game pins is Fanattik, who have amassed an impressive range of pins for games such as Cuphead, Fallout and The Elder Scrolls.
How could we write a list of stocking filler ideas without the ultimate stocking filler - socks! You can find video game socks from a range of shops but here is a selection of some of our favourites; Banjo & Kazooie and Persona socks from Fangamer, Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher socks from J!NX and Fallout socks from Insert Coin.
We already covered one fun way to get everyone together at Christmas with our guide to video game board games, but how about some video game playing cards?
There are some fantastic sets of video game playing cards available, including Fallout and Skyrim playing cards from Fanattik, Metal Gear Solid and Dark Souls playing cards from Fangamer, and a range of video game playing cards from Paladone, such as PlayStation and Xbox.
If you still haven't found the ideal stocking filler, there are plenty more novel products to be found. A few examples are the Power Mitt by Fangamer, the PlayStation controller stress toy by Paladone and some unique video game stamps by Royal Mail! Have a look around the online and local shops in our directories, or perhaps take a look on eBay's video game merchandise category and see if you can find something a bit different!
