Christmas is here again. This is a time for family and for chestnuts roasting by an open fire. Yet for many people it’s also a time of agonising over what to give your loved ones as presents. In fact, we often give loved ones the wrong presents. Yet if you’re buying for a gamer, then you’ve come to the right place! Here are six gift ideas for the avid video game enthusiast…

Now for just £124, you can buy your beau this perfect recreation of the famous specs. They come complete with UV protection courtesy of JF Rey and will also support prescription lenses.
MWE Emperor LX
Unlike most of the items on this list, the MWE Emperor LX won’t fit into the average sized stocking.
