Gaming Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

Father’s Day 2021 is coming up! If you’re stuck on what to get, do not worry. Whether you’re looking for gifts for the dads that have everything or need some inspiration for some gaming gifts he’ll love, we’ve got something for you. We’ve collected some ideas that gamer dads will love.


If you know an exciting game is coming out soon that he has his eye on, you can pre-order online and pay just a few days before release day. You will receive a receipt which you can wrap into a card, and he can enjoy his present when the game comes out! It is a no brainer for the dads who have never gone without the Official F1 Videogame or one of the Far Cry games. Not sure which games are coming out? You can browse all pre-order games here.


You can’t go wrong with a new headset or controller. A headset can enhance a gamers experience and really immerse them in the world. There are many headsets available but many of them are cross-compatible so you can pick one at your price point and it should work across PlayStation and Xbox.

If you know which console your dad plays, a new controller in his favourite colour will be an easy win. PlayStation 4 uses the DualShock 4, PlayStation 5 uses the DualSense, and all Xbox consoles use Xbox and Xbox Elite controllers. You can browse all gaming headsets and gaming controllers here.


If you’re really stuck on what Father’s Day gift to get, give him the gift of choice with digital credit. Both PlayStation and Xbox consoles have their own store full of great games or game add-ons that players can download. By purchasing digital credit, you give your dad complete freedom to choose what he’d like to purchase. Just make sure to buy the correct credit for the console he owns, pop the code into a card and you’ve got yourself a gift for dad! You can browse all digital credit.


On the topic of digital credit, another Father’s Day gift idea is digital credit for a specific game. For games such as FIFA or Call of Duty, you can get point packs which your dad can spend in the game on new players, weapons or anything he wishes! You can browse FIFA Points here and COD Points here


Nostalgia is a great gift, especially for the dads that have everything already. Gaming started with arcade machines, so why not blast him back to the past with his very own arcade machine? Perfect for his very own gaming room, there are many arcade machines for iconic games that revolutionised the way we play. There are also plenty of retro consoles and collectibles that will be perfect for dads who have been gaming since they were little. Browse all retro merchandise here.
