November has arrived, and with colder weather and longer nights, there are plenty of opportunities to stay indoors and play games. If you’re shopping for a player this year, but don’t know where to start your search, you’re in luck. HP has plenty of great options for the gamer on your list at a variety of price points.
Buy gifts from HP
From some of the best new gaming headsets we’ve tested to a fantastic gaming monitor, here are our best gifts for HP gamers this year.
1. For the everyday gamer: 1440P X27Q gaming monitor
HP has a pretty stellar lineup of gaming monitors, but not all of them have the great value of the X27Q monitor, which we reviewed earlier this year. The monitor offers smooth performance and pairs well with FreeSync Premium and G-Sync when used with Nvidia graphics cards. Right now it’s $350 at HP, but it’s often discounted, so keep an eye on the price as we head into Black Friday.

2. For the Virtual Reality Beginner: HP Reverb G2 Virtual Reality Headset
If you’re looking for a VR headset for playing games, the HP Reverb might be for you. Our reviewer noted that, other than “for the fact that it’s a tethered headset requiring a PC to run it, HP’s Reverb G2 looks like the Microsoft Store equivalent of the Quest 2” (the Quest is our favorite VR headset). The machine has great controllers and solid user features, making it a great starting point for someone who wants to get into VR without being too limited in its gameplay.

3. For the streamer: HyperX QuadCast S Microphone
If someone on your list is looking to get into streaming in the new year, consider getting them the QuadCast S USB Microphone with dynamic RGB lighting and anti-vibration mount to dampen external sounds. Keep in mind that your giveaway will need to have a compatible PC, PS4, PS5, or Mac setup to use the microphone.

4. For those who need a PC: Victus by HP 15L Gaming Desktop
Complete with Windows 11, Intel® Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 graphics, the Victus Gaming PC is an impressive entry into HP’s gaming PC lineup, and ideal for someone who doesn’t have no interest in building their own. The Victus model is definitely more expensive, but it’s equipped with enough high-quality hardware and included software to make it worth it.

5. For those who love naruto: HyperX Cloud Alpha Naruto Headset
The HyperX Cloud Alpha headset is one of our favorites, and if your giveaway is obsessed with great sound quality and naruto, consider buying them a pair of these orange and black themed headphones. We like the Cloud Alpha model for its exceptional 30-hour battery life and punchy sound quality.

6. For the one on the go: Victus by HP Laptop 15z-fb000
Some people prefer to take their games on the go. Available in cool gray, blue, or white, the Victus by HP gaming laptop is light enough to take to the coffee shop or to school, and houses an AMD Ryzen 5 5600H processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 graphics, as well than a pre-installed Windows 11 software.

7. For the one who loves Jodi Comer: HyperX Cloud II gaming headset
If you happened to watch Jodi Comer in free guy this year, you might recognize these headphones. According to our review, the Cloud II headset comes with comfortable leatherette (or velor) earpads and a durable aluminum body that’s perfect for long hours of gaming.

8. For the PC Gamer: OMEN Outpost Mouse Pad
Gaming on a PC often requires a lot of small, sudden movements, and if the surfaces of your giveaway aren’t protected, they could be doing more harm than good. This OMEN gaming mouse pad has built-in Qi wireless charging to wirelessly charge your mouse and other devices.
$61 at HP
9. For those who want great sound (but don’t want to shell out): HyperX Cloud Stinger II gaming headset
Get ready to transform someone’s gaming experience for less than $50. Gaming headsets are amazing (not just for gaming either) thanks to over-ear headphones that allow full immersion via sound. This HyperX Cloud Stinger II headset is reasonably priced compared to many other gaming headsets, and our reviewer loved it for its durability and comfort for the price.
$40 at HP
10. For those who need a bit of everything: HyperX Ultimate Gamer Bundle
Why give away one piece of a gaming setup when you could give them everything they need (beyond a PC and monitor) to get started? HyperX’s Gamer Bundle comes with the QuadCast S Microphone, Alloy Origins Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with RGB Lighting, Cloud Flight Headset, and Pulsefire Dart Mouse and Mousepad. The bundle actually saves you up to $204 off the price of all items, so it’s worth it if you’re looking to outfit someone (or yourself) with some new gear.
