HP gamer gifts: 1440P X27Q Gaming Monitor

HP has a pretty stellar lineup of gaming monitors, but not all of them have the great value of the X27Q monitor, which we reviewed earlier this year. The monitor boasts silky smooth performance and pairs well with FreeSync Premium and G-Sync when used with Nvidia graphics cards. Right now it’s $350 at HP, but it often gets marked down, so keep an eye on the price as we head toward Black Friday.

HP gamer gifts: HP Reverb G2 Virtual Reality Headset

If you’ve been on the hunt for a VR headset to play games with, the HP Reverb could be for you. Our reviewer noted that, if not “for the fact that it’s a tethered headset requiring a PC to run it, HP’s Reverb G2 feels like the Microsoft Store equivalent to the Quest 2” (the Quest is our favorite VR headset). The machine has great controllers and solid user features, making it an excellent starting point for someone who wants to get into VR without being too limited in their gameplay.

3. For the streamer: HyperX QuadCast S Microphone

HP gamer gifts: HyperX QuadCast S Microphone

If someone on your list is looking to get into streaming in the new year, consider getting them the QuadCast S USB microphone with dynamic, RGB lighting and an anti-vibration shock mount to mitigate external sounds. Keep in mind that your giftee will need to have a setup that’s PC, PS4, PS5, or Mac compatible to use the microphone.

HP gamer gifts: Victus by HP 15L Gaming Desktop

Complete with Windows 11, Intel® Core i7, 16GB RAM, and a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card, the Victus gaming PC is an impressive entry to HP’s gaming PC lineup, and great for someone who doesn’t have any interest in building out their own. The Victus model is definitely on the pricier end of things, but it comes equipped with enough high-quality hardware and included software to be worth it.

5. For the one who loves Naruto: HyperX Cloud Alpha Naruto Headset

The HyperX Cloud Alpha headset is one of our favorites, and if your giftee is obsessed with great sound quality and Naruto, consider snagging a pair of these orange- and black-themed headphones for them. We love the Cloud Alpha model for its stellar 30-hour battery life and impactful sound quality.

Gaming on a PC often requires a lot of small, sharp movements, and if your giftee’s surfaces are unprotected, they could be doing more harm than good. This gaming mouse pad from OMEN boasts built-in Qi wireless charging to charge your wireless mouse and other devices.

Prepare to transform someone's gaming experience for less than $50. Gaming headsets are incredible (not just for gaming, either) thanks to over-the-ear headphones that allow for full immersion via sound. This HyperX Cloud Stinger II headset is reasonably priced compared to a lot of other gaming headsets, and our reviewer loved it for its durability and comfort for the price.

HP gamer gifts: HyperX Ultimate Gamer Bundle

Why give one piece of a gaming setup when you could give them everything they need (beyond a PC and monitor) to get started? The Gamer Bundle from HyperX comes with the QuadCast S microphone, the Alloy Origins mechanical gaming keyboard with RGB lighting, the Cloud Flight headset, and the Pulsefire Dart mouse and mousepad. The bundle actually saves you up to $204 on the price of all the items, so it’s worth it if you’re looking to outfit someone (or yourself) with new gear.
