I’m willing to bet you have at least one gamer on your gift-giving list this year. If they happen to prefer PC gaming over Playstation or Xbox, I’ve got a great idea for what you can get to really impress them when they tear off the wrapping paper.
Razer specializes in tech meant for gaming, from mice and keyboards to headphones and soundbars, and even gaming laptops. We’ve tested a lot of their products already and more than a few outperformed the competition. Right now, you can get a number of our all-time favorites for amazing sale prices as part of Razer’s Cyber Week deals (and a few great Amazon discounts too!).
1. The best-performing headphones for gaming on any platform
Gamers care about performance, and these truly deliver in that arena.
The Razer ManO’War over-ear gaming headphones won our Editor’s Choice award as well as being named the best performing headphones of all the gaming headsets we tested. We love the fact that they’re wireless and feature a stand-out mic that picks up your voice and not the ambient noises in your room. And they’re perfect for games like Overwatch and Battlefield that heavily feature audio cues.

2. The best headphones for Xbox gamers
Any Xbox gamer is sure to love these, especially people who love Overwatch.
Does your gamer love Xbox above all else? These are the headphones you want. So many versions of these headphones are already our of stock on Amazon and on Razer’s site, but this headset, featuring a 50mm-driver (arguably the best option), is still available on Amazon for $59.99, a $20 savings off the regular $80 price. I don’t think it’ll last long, so act fast if this is the right fit for anyone on your list.

3. The best gaming mouse we’ve ever tried
With this mouse, gamers don’t have to worry about hand cramps or accidentally hitting the wrong button.
If you’re going to spend countless hours playing games on your PC, you’re going to want a mouse that responds well and is easy and comfortable to use. We tested a dozen different popular gaming mice and found this to be the best option available. Not only is it the nicest and best-designed, but it also doesn’t overload the buttons, keeping things to a minimum for easier usage. This discount on Amazon is the lowest price we’ve seen for this mouse in months (usually $89.99), beating our Razer’s own site by $10.

4. The best soundbar we’ve ever tested
Jazz up any game, TV show, or movie with a soundbar that delivers near-surround sound quality.
A good soundbar can be as impressive as surround sound, and at a fraction of the price. It’s designed to enhance music and gaming sound effects, but works great for watching TV too. I actually have this model hooked up to a TV in my home, and it is just so much richer and more impressive than the TV speakers alone. It beat all the soundbars we tested, and it’s a great addition to any home gaming setup, no matter which platform your gamer prefers—especially for 25% off.

5. This mini, portable version of the best soundbar
Some people cannot live without their music, and for them, there’s this speaker.
So, this might not be a gaming accessory, per se, but if you need a gift for someone who can’t go without music no matter where they are, look no further than the Leviathan Mini. Not only is this portable speaker just under $100, a 44% discount from its usual price, but it packs a whollop despite its small stature.
