Introduction

Arguably the most important holiday of the year, Black Friday is the day where Americans can splurge on sick discounts online and get the most bang for their buck when it comes to the holiday season. Even if don't believe in Black Friday, check out some of the gift ideas below for your own upcoming holidays!

If your wallet is itching or you know a gamer friend who needs to stop being bad and could use some accessories to save him from Elo Hell, be sure to check out the list below!

Wireless Gaming Mouse

Still looking to make that breakthrough to the next level but using a dinky wireless laptop mouse? This might be the single most important upgrade of your gaming system outside of a graphics card.

Wireless mice have had a bad rep for the long time. It's nearly 2020 though and the technology is nearly seamless. The lag is non-existent, the battery life is amazing, and you can plug it in if you're in a pinch.

This marvel of engineering originally came out at $149.99 but dropped over 50% to an incredible $73. Compared to Logitech's newer offerings at over $100, this one's an absolute steal and has performed incredibly for users over the past few years. 

It sports over 30 hours wireless battery life which is more than sufficient for dominating a few sessions in  row. Once it runs out of battery just plug it and keep playing normally using it as a wired version. EZ PZ.

Meanwhile if you're interested in paying a premium to upgrade to the newest model, the new Logitech G903 is on sale for 13% off and sports an insane 140 hours+ of battery time between recharges!

Gaming Headset

Gaming headsets used to be cheaply made and overpriced. Nowadays, you can find some that are well made and still cheap enough to not break the bank.

One of those is the HyperX Cloud Stinger, which is selling for a clean $29.99, down 40% from $49.99. At this kind of price point, it's tough to beat for the quality and comfort this line provides.
On the other hand, if you've got a little more room in the budget I'd definitely recommend the highly rated Sennheiser Game Onewhich is currently on sale for Black Friday at $107, crazy cheap as far as this highly beloved headset goes.

Meanwhile, if you really want to have a REALLY great pair of gaming headsets, don't go buying a $200 premium set from a gaming headset company. Instead spend that $200 on the optimal headset configuration.

The best way to do it is to get a real pair of headphones, pop a detachable (uni-directional) mic, and then plug it into a Digital to Analog converter. This will give you the absolute best base quality sound for your money and put you well on the way to being an audiophile...

Mechanical Keyboard With Cherry MX Keys

Having a true mechanical keyboard allows you HEAR and FEEL the sound of your keyboard before seeing the inputs on your screen. This increases your reaction time and allows you to dominate with more speed and precision than ever before.

Nowadays there are a lot of imitators out there but mechanical keyboards using Cherry MX keys are still top of the class, ranging from linear Cherry MX Reds to super clicky Cherry MX Blues.

Right now the Corsair K68 is on sale for Black Friday for $55, down from $100. At the time of this writing, this is by far the best deal you can get on a fully mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Reds.


Meanwhile, if you prefer a smaller form factor, Tenkeyless (or TKL) boards are all the rage this year for their aesthetic appeal. When it comes to ticking all the boxes, the HyperX Alloy TKL is one of the best in its class. At a current $69.99, this is as good as it gets and as a bonus, you can equip them with Cherry MX Blues to wake up your neighbors.




Sound System

For those of us not interested in talking while playing there's also the full soundset option, which could come in a budget $24.99 system from Logitech down from $49.99.

If you want to splurge, there's always the Bose Companion 2 Series III for $89, down 10% from their standard $99.00 price.

Mouse Pad

Mousepads are one of those things gamers just want to pick up once and forget about it, even if starts getting a bit worn and dusty.

For those of you accident prone gamers who like to keep a can of Redbull by your desk at all times, take a look at this waterproof mousepad from Reflex, currently going for $9.99, an excellent gift basket item.

If you just want the basics, the SteelSeries QcK Gaming Mouse Pad, is still excellent and continues to be the best selling mousepad of all time.

New 144 HZ Monitor

If you're still not totally convinced a 144 HZ monitor is worth it, I gotta tell you...it absolutely is if you're diehard gamer.

Without getting one, you're effectively capping yourself at 60 frames per second. If your computer can generate any higher outputs...you need a monitor with a higher refresh rate. Period.

If you're on a budget, this 24" AOC C24G1 24" Curved Frameless Gaming Monitor is quite good at $149 and uses the new VA panel tech, meaning it's not quite as good as IPS but far better than TN monitors.

    Webcam

    1080P is all the rage now, and if you don't have a 1080P webcam, you're behind on the curve. Who wants to watch a stream at 720? Pshaw.

    Pick yourself up the #1 best seller on sale for this week, the Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920, now equipped with a privacy cover for you paranoid fellas.

    Amazon Echo Dot

    After picking one of these bad boys (girls?) up a few years ago, I can't imagine life without it. Alexa's one slick gadget that provides:
    • Voice-activated alarms and reminders
    • Voice-activated weather reports
    • Voice-activated music control
    • Voice-activated friendship and never ignores you like your mom does.
    For those of you that get too deeply immersed in your gaming sessions to remember to do real life responsibilities, this thing is perfect. It's also great if you suddenly realize that an awful song is playing in the middle of a teamfight and absolutely need to switch to the next one. 

    The latest generation of Echo is super cheap now at $29.99! Pick one up and find out what you've been missing out on!

    Discount Snacks in Bulk

    If you're into the long hour gaming sessions, it's a great idea to have some snacks on hand in case the grocery store closes and you're left starving at your desk (I'm not ashamed to admit it's happened on occasion).

    I'm not going to be your nutrition expert, but you could always order some Kind Bars, which are both healthy and nutritious. They're also an excellent alternative to the normal ramen and hot pocket diet.

    Let me know if you find somewhere I can get like 50 for half price.

    Roomba Dust Cleaning Robot

    Gamers don't like cleaning...but hey it's gotta be done. Maybe it's time to pick up a eufy BoostIQ RoboVac for $199, down from $279 for Black Friday. It's pricey, but at least you won't have to shake yourself off every time you leave the house right?
