Not Your Typical Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers for Gamers

I have a special place in my heart for handmade things that are slightly off the beaten path. Knowing the passion and creativity that often goes into designing and creating these pieces make them extra special, and you can often get them at more than reasonable prices. I took a stroll through Etsy (my favorite website that specializes in handmade items) looking for stocking stuffers perfect for the gamer in your life. This isn’t your typical holiday gift guide full of video games and accessories (that one’s coming later). This gift guide is full of inexpensive handmade treasures (everything is $30 or less) that are sure to bring a smile to someone’s face during the festive holiday season. Enjoy something a little different, and perhaps give something a little different this year as well.

    kthxbai!

  3. DeepCee says:

    Cancel that, she hates them.
    But she loves the sackboy pendant :)

  4. These are cute! Not handmade but also good for gamers (or those into Star Wars): Star Wars USB drives in the shape of various characters. Not cheap, though.

    I’ve been looking on Etsy a lot for stocking stuffers, but it hadn’t occurred to me to look for ones particularly suited for gamers. Thanks for the ideas!
