10 Surefire Holiday Gift Ideas

Gaming Consoles and Games

The PlayStation 4 (PS4) Pro, released just in time for the holiday gift-buying season, is on the high end of our suggested gifts for the season, but a pretty good present for serious gamers and movie lovers. The Pro has 4K capabilities, better graphics than the original console and a Blu-ray player. Buying a gift for someone who already has a PS4 or other gaming console? Then your job is even easier. Games, controllers and other accessories start at just under $20.

As you shop for games, take a look at the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) ratings. These provide information about video and computer game content, and have two parts: symbols that suggest age appropriateness for the game (on the front of the box) and content descriptors (located on the back of the box).

Here are the four ratings to look for as you shop:

  • Everyone
  • Everyone 10+
  • Teen
  • Mature

Suggested for:

Gamers, kids, teens, husbands, wives, boyfriends, girlfriends. moms, dads, college kids, extended family.
