OverviewVideos games are costly, as the console, games and accessories can really add up. If you want to treat someone you know to a video game-related gift that is cheap, then there are many options to consider. You can find some great deals on video game-related products and end up saving a lot of money and pleasing the gift recipient at the same time.
Used Video GamesThe easiest option is to consider used video games. Often times you can find games for more than 50 percent off the retail price and in excellent condition. Searching at video game stores and online websites like eBay can help you come across used games for $10 or less.
Magazines"Game Pro," "Game Informer," "Electronic Gaming Monthly," and many other video game magazines are available for the video game lover. You can go the really cheap route and purchase a single magazine from a store or you can pay $15 to $20 for a full-year subscription. Look for magazines with demo discs for an added bonus.
FoodThere is nothing like a video game and a bowl of chips, so a video game snack pack would be a perfect way to surprise a game player. Other than the standard snacks, you can even purchase video game-related snacks like the Wii Remote candy dispenser. Mario also has a large collection of themed candy.
DecorationsIf you want to purchase something for a specific console, then a skin would do the trick. Console skins are available for nearly every console, including the PS3 and Xbox 360. There are various themes to these stick-on skins such as sports, video games, and even the WWE. The skins can be added and removed easily and can often be found for less than $10.
Digital DollarsMany of the consoles have their own store where old games and updates can be downloaded. Purchasing a $10 gift card to any of these digital video game stores will allow the video game player to download multiple games and extras for her system. This one of the easiest ways to purchase a video game-related gift.
