It’s December once again, unsurprisingly coming a year after the last one, and December means the Holiday season for a great many people. Festive ornaments, fussing about getting the ingredients for a proper meal and scrambling to get the presents before they disappear from the shelves.
Like every year we’ve prepared a list of suggestions of cool gifts you could buy on G2A, digital and physical alike, so let’s dive in to see what hides in Santa’s sack. It’s been a pretty intensive year overall, with many new holiday gift possibilities that have opened up.
What’s worth getting a geek and gamer this year?
Video streaming services are fighting over viewers with high quality and high memorability productions, making 2019 a good year for fans of home media.
Netflix is gearing up to take in orphaned Game of Thrones fans with its The Witcher, based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s books which inspired the famous game series, and the trailers suggest an excellent dark fantasy series, although definitely not for children. And that’s not to mention other titles in the library.
Meanwhile Disney Plus tempts not only with classic shows from companies absorbed by Disney, like The Simpsons, but also original series such as The Mandalorian, which was on everyone’s feeds this year due to the existence of Baby Yoda, who is at the moment a meme-phenomenon, savior of pop-culture world, and only hope for Star Wars franchise. Cute alien toddler brought happiness and optimism into the hearts of the people all over the world, many of whom consider him the cutest Disney character of all time…
Finally Amazon Prime amazed everyone with Watchmen, acting as a sequel to Alan Moore’s classic comic book. The shows is getting raving reviews and presents a world several decades after Ozymandias’ plan went live. By most accounts it’s an outstanding production, sidestepping the adaptational pitfalls that Zack Snyder’s version stumbled into a decade ago.
General gaming goodness
And the above doesn’t even cover many other things you could buy on G2A to save yourself a trip to the mall. There’s a nice selection of smartphones from manufacturers such as Xiaomi or Apple, and if you want a Smart TV without having to pay for the “Smart” part, you can get yourself a Mi Box to give you essentially the same benefits.

Below you’ll find more suggestions for presents you can buy for you family, friends, or yourself, because there’s nothing wrong in buying presents for oneself.
Best Video Games of 2019 to Buy on Christmas
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Ever since the legendary Star Wars Holiday Special, late December is very much a time of year connected to Star Wars. This year we’re even getting a new movie, Episode IX, completing the trilogy of Star Wars trilogies.
What a perfect time to add a bit of Star Wars magic to your gaming Library! Jedi: Fallen Order is the latest Star Wars game, a fantastic singleplayer experience taking place between episodes III and IV, a few years after Order 66. It has rewarding exploration, solid combat, and takes on a lot of rarely utilized pieces of Star Wars canon. Cal Kestis’ mission will turn out to be extremely important for the galaxy’s fate. A perfect gift for a Star Wars-loving gamer.
Red Dead Redemption 2
A much-awaited third installment in the Red Dead series and a prequel to the widely acclaimed Red Dead Redemption, RDR2 is a gripping Western tale set during the final years of the Old West.
As Arthur Morgan, you need to find a way to keep Van der Linde’s gang going even as it begins to fall apart due to external and internal circumstances. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a masterpiece of detailed worldbuilding that few studios other than Rockstar can manage. If you are looking for a gift for someone who enjoys full immersion in the world, RDR2 is the right choice. And like all Rockstar games, the story is guaranteed to be remembered fondly as years pass by.
Hideo Kojima’s first game since he left Konami is an undoubtedly contentious piece. A testament to the Japanese developer’s unbridled creativity and love of working with high concepts, Death Stranding is best experienced for oneself.
Any attempt to summarize its story are bound to generate only more confusion, and the gameplay sounds weird in theory, and can only work in practice. Kojima also managed to invite a number of his celebrity friends to star in his magnum opus, notably Norman Reedus as the protagonist, but also Mads Mikkelsen and Guillermo del Toro, with detailed performance capture. It’s one of a kind production, but if you know a Kojima fan and they haven’t been talking about this game, they probably don’t have it yet. You could change it.
Grand Theft Auto V (GTA Online)
Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most successful and profitable games in history, and this achievement comes from two segments.
The first is the singleplayer campaign which gives the player control over three very different criminals, and the freedom to roam the detailed and lifelike city of Los Santos, engaging with many activities in the city and beyond it. The second key to success is GTA Online, which lets you and a solid bunch of other players land in a server and play together.
Racing, heists, or even roleplaying are all viable options. Either way, GTA V, Online or singleplayer, is a great game you should absolutely gift to someone who doesn’t have it and likes a solid action-adventure game. And if they are already playing GTAO, you can give them a boost with a Shark Card.
FIFA is a game series that is more reliable than atomic clocks. Every year a new edition comes out, and after almost thirty years it’s amazing that the developers keep finding new avenues of improvement.
This year’s installment isn’t any different. FIFA 20 zooms in a little bit, and shifts some of its attention to street football in a new mode called VOLTA Football. It’s an interesting change of pace and will resonate with anyone who spent long hours of their childhood playing on the streets and playgrounds. And there’s still local multiplayer, which makes FIFA 20 a fun reason to reunite with gaming friends over this year’s holiday season.
Sony PlayStation Classic
If the one you want to surprise with an amazing Christmas gift likes to play games and still remembers the times of a good old Sony PlayStation console from 1995, then PlayStation Classic might be the best present you can give him.
Hit him with nostalgia and let him travel back in time, thanks to the miniaturized version of the iconic video game console that comes with 20 pre-installed games out-of-the-box. Although it does not include some of the legendary games, such as the Gran Turismo or Tomb Raider, it still comes with plenty of incredibly playable and fun titles that were wildly popular back then, including Grand Theft Auto, Tekken III, and Metal Gear Solid.
Xiaomi Pocophone F1 Black
A good gaming smartphone is also a viable option, and when speaking of performance, there’s hardly anything better than Xiaomi Pocophone F1 in its price range. It comes with one of the most powerful mobile processors, often found in much more expensive devices and flagships – a Snapdragon 845.
It can easily handle even the most demanding 3D games and applications, making Poco F1 an ideal gaming Christmas gift for your loved one or a friend of yours. Not to mention the liquid cooling system that keeps the device cool even during the most active use, preventing overheating and stuttering caused by high temperatures.
JBL Flip 5
It might be hard to choose a gaming gift for someone who already has everything he needs. Or at least he thinks he does and it’s your job to show him that he’s wrong.
You can do so with JBL Flip 5 speakers, a perfect choice for those who travel a lot and can’t take much luggage with them. From now on they won’t be forced to use weak headphones or earbuds anymore – they’ll be able to enjoy their favorite music in high quality wherever they are. These waterproof portable speakers take very little space, so they’ll easily fit into any backpack, and you will be surprised how well they sound for such a small device.
Xiaomi Mi Band 4 Smart Bracelet
Gaming over and over is not quite healthy, so your gamer buddy might enjoy a gift that will encourage him/her to do some physical activity or in case he’s/she’s already an active person, turn their exercise sessions into an even more enjoyable experience.
Get them a smart bracelet, such as Xiaomi Mi Band 4, and let him make their training more efficient. The bracelet has multiple useful features built-in and allows its wearer to track heart rate in real-time, calories burned, and even current pace. Additionally, it has sleep monitoring functions that help to analyze sleep patterns, and even idle alerts, that inform the wearer if he remained inactive for too long.
Logitech G502 HERO Gaming Mouse
A good gaming mouse is one of the essential tools for every PC gamer, so if your friend or the loved one is often complaining about their own being old or defective, then it might be the time for getting him a new one.
Keep in mind, however, that computer mice come in different shapes and sizes and for a gamer, you can’t just get any mouse. You need a gaming one, such as Logitech G502 HERO. It’s not a cheap gift, but it’s worth its price and its receiver will surely be grateful that he can finally score some headshots in their favorite first-person shooter games. The aforementioned mouse is not only accurate and comfortable to use but also has some cool RGB lighting built-in that can be synchronized with other compatible devices from Logitech.
