EPOS GSP 600 Series Gaming Headsets

EPOS GSP 602

  • Price: From $99.99
  • Where To Buy: Amazon, EPOS, B&H

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better option for a wired gaming headset than the GSP 600 series from EPOS. Not only are they affordable, but they’re closed back, they come in a few different colors, and the audio quality is amazing.

We’ve tested quite a few EPOS headsets here over the years, and we’ve loved them all. EPOS clearly knows what it’s doing when it comes to gaming audio hardware. Best of all, is that the 600 series headsets are on sale for Valentine’s Day, which makes them a great gift for the gamer or gamers in your life and one of the best gifts you could give.

Razer Kaira Pro for PS5

Razer Kaira Pro For PlayStation 2

  • Price: $199
  • Where To Buy: Amazon, Razer

Razer’s Kaira Pro headset is perfect for PS5 and is one of the best options for Valentine’s Day gifts for gamers who love to take their gaming up a notch. Thanks to the THX-certified spatial audio, every moment will sound clear and concise. The real magic is in the HyperSense technology though.

Thanks to these advanced haptics, users won’t just hear the sounds in their games, they’ll feel them. Bringing gaming to a level of immersion you just need to experience to believe. While they won’t literally put you in the middle of all the action, they do an excellent job at making things feel just as real as they sound.

They’re wireless, come with decent battery life, and they’re multi-platform because they can be used with PC and mobile as well.

PlayStation Heritage Zip Up Hoodie

PlayStation Heritage Zip Up Hoodie

  • Price: $59.95
  • Where To Buy: PlayStation Gear

For the PlayStation fan in your life, snag the PlayStation Heritage Zip-up Hoodie while you can. As stock seems to be flying off the shelves. In fact, a couple of sizes are already out of stock, so you won’t want to wait too long if this seems like a great gift for your significant other.

It’s cold this time of year in many parts of the world, and this hoodie is a great way to help you stay warm while you play your favorite games.

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate Subscription

xbox game pass ultimate

  • Price: From $14.99
  • Where To Buy: Amazon

There’s no denying that one of the best values in gaming right now is Xbox Game Ultimate. Which makes this one of the best Valentine’s Day gifts you can buy for gamers. You can pick up the subscription in 1-month and 3-month options, and it opens up a whole world of gaming possibilities.

You can play the games on PC, Xbox, and in the cloud. Which means you can game virtually anywhere as long as there’s internet for streaming or downloading. Plus, there’s plenty of co-op games so you and your significant other can play together.

Xbox Nexus Hoodie

Xbox Nexus Hoodie

  • Price: $59.99
  • Where To Buy: Xbox Gear Shop

Just like with the PlayStation Heritage hoodie, the Xbox Nexus hoodie is a great way to keep warm while you play games. Of course it’s perfect for just wearing around as part of your everyday attire too.

You can grab the Nexus hoodie directly from the Xbox Gear Shop and it comes in a variety of sizes for both men and women.

P.F. Candle Co. Soy Candles

P F Candle Co Soy Candles

  • Price: From $20
  • Where To Buy: Amazon, P.F. Candle Co.

Everyone enjoys a room that smells nice which is why we added in these awesome soy candles from P.F. Candle Co. Whether you’re just trying to freshen up your gaming space or any other room in the home, these are a wonderful gift to help you do just that.

They come in a variety of scents and last for roughly 40-50 hours of burn time. Some of our favorites are the Spruce, Black Fig, and Piñon scents. Though sometimes you can snag one of the limited seasonal scents like Vanilla and Ghost Pepper that really spice things up. In a pleasant way.

Haven

  • Price: $24.99
  • Where To Buy: PSN, Steam, Epic Games Store, Xbox, Nintendo eShop

Relationships take work, even the most loving ones. And that’s exactly what you’ll get when playing Haven, a game about two people in love who give up everything to escape their fates and be together. You can play Haven single-player or co-op which makes it one of the best gifts for gamers this Valentine’s Day.

Especially if you’re looking to play with your significant other. Plus, it’s available on nearly all platforms and it’s a steal at just $25.

Logitech G915 TKL

Logitech G915 TKL

  • Price: From $189.99
  • Where To Buy: Amazon, B&H, Best Buy, Newegg, GameStop

I’ve been using this keyboard for months now and aside from its lack of compatibility with the PS5, this is one of the best mechanical gaming keyboards you can buy. The lightspeed wireless technology makes for a fast connection to your PC, and helps to reduce the amount of latency between your key presses and the game response.

It also has the ability to effortlessly switch between the lightspeed-connected device and a Bluetooth-connected device at the push of a button. Other things like the volume scroll wheel, and dedicated media playback controls are even more reasons to love this keyboard. But most of all, the battery life and build-quality are what make this the keyboard to beat.

While it’s not the only great gaming keyboard out there, it currently stands at the top. If there was one or two things that could be improved though, it would be support for the PS5 via Bluetooth, and the use of USB-C instead of micro USB for the cable connection when charging.

Bang & Olufsen Beoplay Portal

Bang Olufsen Beoplay Portal For Xbox Headphones

  • Price: From $372.45
  • Where To Buy: Amazon, Best Buy, Xbox, Bang & Olufsen

Gaming is a passion for many people and if you take your audio experiences with games just as serious, then you might want to consider a high-end audio headset to go along with the console.

The most high-end audio headset you can probably pick up for the Xbox Series X right now is the Beoplay Portal from Bang & Olufsen. While pricey, and by pricey I mean really pricey, it does come with a sense of quality and a collection of features that you might not find elsewhere.

Things like the virtual boom mic make this not only easy to use but stylish, as there’s no flip up boom mic sitting in front of your mouth while you talk. Especially when you pair the virtual boom mic with the premium materials used for the headset.

These are specifically designed for the Xbox but they also work with Windows 10 PCs, which means it works for console and PC gaming. It also supports Bluetooth connections, so you can use it with your mobile device for listening to music too. As for features, you get things like adaptive Active Noise Cancellation, a quick access mute feature, and immersive sound.

It won’t be cheap, but it will be nice. And you’ll be able to use it with more than just the Xbox. That versatility alone makes it more worth the price.

Master & Dynamic MG20

Master Dynamic MG20 Gaming Headphones PS5

  • Price: $449.99
  • Where To Buy: Amazon, Master & Dynamic

Xbox Series X|S has the Beoplay Portal headset, and now PS5 has its own luxury gaming headset in the Master & Dynamic MG20. While pricey at $449, you’re paying a premium for a super high-quality gaming headset that comes with just the right features. And trust us, you’re getting every single damn thing you pay for here.

For starters, Master & Dynamic is using materials like magnesium earcups, lambskin leather earpads, and an Alcantara and canvas-coated headband. Additionally, it comes with a detachable boom mic which comes with a pop filter, and it has a second built-in mic for voice calls or chat in a more casual setting.

It also comes with a low-latency adaptor, a premium carry pouch, and it uses USB-C for charging. There’s 7.1 surround sound onboard as well, and it comes with up to 22 hours of battery life. I could go on. As there are many more features that make this headset worth it. Sure, it’s $50 less than the Disc Edition of the PS5 console itself. But, you’ll be glad you picked it up if you want a more premium experience in your games.

Nanoleaf Lines Smarter Kit

Nanoleaf Lines Smarter Kit

  • Price: $199
  • Where To Buy: Amazon, Best Buy, ABT Electronics

Like other Nanoleaf products the Lines Smarter Kit lets anyone add a touch of color to their gaming setup, or really anywhere else in the home. They sync with Razer Chroma RGB as well so you can have all of your lights synced together while you play. A must-have for any game room.

They’re also great for anyone that streams their gameplay as they can add some awesome effects to the background for viewers.

John Boos Block Cutting Boards

Boos Block Cutting Boards

  • Price: From $43.99
  • Where To Buy: Amazon

Everyone needs to eat and while this might seem like an odd gift for gamers, Valentine’s Day is all about showing love and appreciation for your significant other. Cooking together or for that person can be an awesome way to do that. And a Boos Block cutting board is one of the best things you can have in the kitchen.

They’re sturdy and heavy so they won’t slide around on the countertop as long as you have them properly secured. Which usually takes no more than a damp paper towel underneath it.

They also come in a range of sizes so you can pick one up that fits your needs, as well as one that fits your tastes thanks to the different wood types and finishes. If you want to make a good impression for Valentine’s Day, pick one of these up for the person that likes to cook. Or grab it for yourself and use it while you cook a special dinner for your significant other.

PNY XLR8 4TB M.2 NVMe SSD

PNY XLR8 NVMe SSD

  • Price: $599
  • Where To Buy: Amazon, Best Buy

Next on the list is the XLR8 from PNY. PNY makes a ton of different storage devices, and this includes NVMe SSDs for PC. Specifically the XLR8 meets all the requirements that Sony put on its list of recommended specs, and this one isn’t too pricey so it’s one of the best SSDs for PS5.

This SSD has a read speed of up to 5,600MB/s, which puts it just 100MB/s above Sony’s recommended 5,500MB/s. It’s also PCIe Gen4, which all the drives will need to be if you want to use them in the console.

PNY sells this SSD in multiple storage sizes, starting with 500GB. It’s also available with a heatsink attached, or you can get one without. The model with the heatsink included does not meet the size requirements though. So if you go with this SSD, you’ll have to get a heatsink separately that does meet the size requirements, and attach it yourself, if you want the heatsink.

PSN Gift Card

PlayStation Store Code Deal

  • Price: From $10
  • Where To Buy: Amazon

One of the best Valentine’s Day gifts for gamers is easily a PSN gift card. Because everyone could use a little extra money to throw down on some new games. Which is why we added in this PlayStation Store Gift Card digital code to the list. You can snag them in denominations as low as $10 and up to $100. So there’s plenty of ways to add them up for the perfect amount.

These are only meant for use with the PSN Store on the console, but they do work with both PS4 and PS5.

Snorlax Slippers

Snorlax Slippers

  • Price: $25.99
  • Where To Buy: Amazon

This time of year things can get a little chilly. Which is why these Snorlax slippers are an awesome pickup for the gamer in your life who really loves Pokémon. And what better way to help them enjoy the newly released Pokémon Legends: Arceus than with a pair of Snorlax slipper to keep their feet nice and cozy.

And let’s be honest, there’s no way you won’t score points for these as they’re such a cute gift.

Samsung 980 Pro W/ Heatsink

Samsung 980 Pro With Heatsink for PS5

  • Price: From $189.99
  • Where To Buy: Amazon, B&H, Best Buy, Newegg, GameStop

When it comes to drives for the PS5, this is my personal choice and the one I now have in my PS5. I was using the 1TB model without the heatsink, which meant I had to slap on a third-party heatsink from a company I found on Amazon. It has worked just fine, but I wanted more space.

Comparing this to the 1TB model, this is exactly the same except for the heatsink. Which comes factory from Samsung and it’s pre-installed on the drive out the box. This means it’ll have the same read and write speeds making this one of the best SSDs for your PS5, but because it’s using a Samsung factory heatsink your temperatures may be higher or lower than a 980 Pro with a third-party heatsink.

Not by a lot mind you, and you probably won’t notice any difference anyway. All that said, if you’re going to go with the Samsung 980 Pro, which is one of the best drives out there, the 2TB may be a better option for you if you plan to install a ton of games. It’s normally almost $300 more than the 1TB model without a heatsink. So take that into account. But it’s currently on sale right now for $100 off. Bringing the price down from $449 to $349.
