Present buying is tough, but with this list of the best Sony gifts on Planet Earth, you can kick back knowing you’ve aced it and avoid the gift-finding rush!
No need to thank us; it’s what we do!
As gamers ourselves, we know the kind of thing that we’d like to open up on Christmas morning or when our Birthday’s come around.
We also understand that everyone has different budgets or multiple people to buy for. That’s why you’ll find an array of different gifts below to suit everyone.
From accessories and clothing through to the consoles that have driven Sony to unprecedented heights, check out the best Sony gifts on offer right now and make the gamers in your life happy!
Do we need to introduce the first item on our list? So many of us have either been hankering after a Sony PS5 Console or sat playing one excitedly after months of scrolling for stock.
This gaming behemoth has changed everything. With haptic feedback, insane graphics, and more teraflops than you can shake a flip flop at, the PS5 is Sony’s most powerful machine to date.
And, of course, it means you can play Horizon: Forbidden West.
The PS5 comes in a digital only version or with a disc drive, depending on whether hoarding game cases is something you have room for.
Check out some of the best PS5 games to twin with your new purchase, and clear some space in your TV cabinet!
You can never have too many controllers, which is why this Sony PS5 DualSense Wireless Controller + FIFA 23 is a great present to give and brilliant value for money too.
Hey, we know you’re going to have a little go on Fifa even if you’re not a massive fan. It’s the closest any of us will probably get to smacking a ball past Mbappe or Messi, so we might as well have a bash!
The DualSense controller is the most advanced controller for any console, with haptic triggers and vibrations that recreate the feeling of rain falling on you.
Just don’t go grabbing it while eating anything messy or it won’t stay clean and white for long!
If you don’t know what to buy the Sony fan in your life, then you know you can successfully put a smile on their face with this 12 Month Playstation Plus Psn Membership Card.
It’s not wizardry; just grab the code from the card and input it to get PSN credit redeemable for a year’s subscription to the Play Station Network.
If you want to get online and play friends on your favourite games, get discounts on titles, and store data in the cloud, then you’ll need a PlayStation Plus subscription.
Out of all the gifts on this best Sony gifts list, I’d say this is probably the most essential for any Sony gamer!
And this is the most essential gift for anyone that doesn’t want to list to their Sony gamer playing until the early hours of the morning. The PlayStation PULSE 3D Wireless Headset provides crystal clear audio and also has a hidden mic in it too!
Designed to recreate 3D audio and with a noise-cancelling mic, these headphones are the perfect way to switch off from normal life and immerse yourself in a whole new world.
They’re also the best way to game with friends too. Hear every word as they cheer you on, or more likely cuss you out.
That’s what friends are for, right?
This nifty mini console comes preloaded with 20 games from the PS1’s vast collection.
Dive into Grand Theft Auto, Final Fantasy VII, Resident Evil Director’s Cut, and many more stellar titles.
There’s no messing around with memory cards either; the console uses virtual memory to save your progress.
The whole thing looks exactly like an original PS1, just scaled down and with HDMI connectivity. Play multiplayer with the two wired controllers, or just go solo on epic quests!
If you’re looking to buy a gift for a nostalgic tech-history lover, then this Disassembled PSP With Frame is the perfect present to show off Sony’s first ever handheld.
We all know how popular the PSP 1000 was, dropping straight away with 3D graphics, colour screen, wireless compatibility, media playback… the works!
We still play all the best PSP games today, but we’ve never actually seen the inside of this mean machine… mainly because we prefer ours working rather than being in bits.
Choose from the original PSP 1000 or the PSP 3000, with all the major components sitting next to annotations of what they do. Nerd out with some tech art!
If you’re thinking about getting a PS5, then you need a TV to compliment it. This Sony 65 Inch 4K Ultra HD TV With Exclusive Features for The PS5 brings the deepest blacks and the best contrast for immersive, real-life gaming experiences.
And, it boasts input lag as low as 8.5ms, allowing you to stay right on the action.
There are so many settings to play around with too, including Auto HDR Tone Mapping & Auto Genre Picture Switch. And, with HDMI 2.1 features including the chance to game with visuals made from billions of colours in 4K/120, your games are going to look incredible every time you plug in and switch on.
Oh, and it’s got Google Assistant as well as Disney+, Netflix, Apple TV, and all the usual suspects, just in case you want a break from gaming.
For anyone who’s thinking about setting up a Twitch channel or broadcasting their gaming vids on the internet, the Playstation HD Camera is an incredibly useful tool.
This little device captures in 1080p and comes with a wide angle lens to grab all the action. Create recordings or broadcast live by hitting the create button on your gamepad.
The PS5 also has a sweet tool for removing your background too. Get a green screen involved and you could be broadcasting directly from your favourite games.
Come one, I couldn’t have a list of the best Sony gifts without including the best selling console of all time. Grab a Sony PlayStation 2 (Renewed) and see what all of the fuss is about!
Notice I said ‘best selling’ there rather than ‘the greatest’. I don’t want to cause any arguments amongst the readers, after all.
Yes, the PS2 is the best selling console of all time, and it’s also got the biggest library of games too. With over 4,000 titles, there’s definitely bound to be something that floats your boat!
So many of our favourite series either started life or perfected their formula on the PS2; just look at our best PS2 games for some shopping inspiration!
What do you get the person that has everything? How about a PlayStation Icons Desk Lamp?
Yeah, that’ll do it!
This lamp bears the four symbols that Sony lovers far and wide recognise as the PlayStation controller button icons.
It also has a colour phasing and music reactive mode too! So, you can play your favourite tunes at your next party and see the icons flashing to the beat!
You know I have to include a book or two in these lists whenever I write them, and The Minds Behind PlayStation Games: Interviews with Creators and Developers is a brilliant read.
I think it’s important for us gaming fans to know what went into creating our favourite games. Too often we forget that people have spent countless hours of their time and energy into creating the titles we lose ourselves in.
This book provides a chance to step back from the screens and learn a little about the people who made classics such as Spyro, Final Fantasy VII, Syphon Filter, and another 40 top games.
Read interviews about what it’s like to work with mega publishers, discover the nerve-wracking feeling of wondering whether people will like a game, and find out just what went into making the most successful PS games of our lives.
Overhead headphones are all well and good, but when the weather turns bad or while wandering in the cold Winter, you’re going to want something underneath your hat or hood.
With digital noise cancelling, 9 hours of playback, and IPX4 rain-splash water protection, you’re covered if you have a long walk home in the rain when the bus gets cancelled.
Compatible with all Apple and Android smartphones, you’ll never be without your beloved tunes, podcasts, or audiobooks ever again.
I can’t believe I haven’t put a Funko Pop in this list yet. Let’s change that with the Spyro Funko Pop, complete with little Sparx figurine too!
Ready to pounce into action, this little figurine of gaming’s most famous Dragon is perfect for every games room, work desk, book shelf, or TV cabinet.
And, with Spark coming as a separate figurine, you can place him anywhere you like too! Maybe even dangle him next to Spyro’s head; the choice is yours!
Just do me a favour and don’t keep them locked up in the box, alright? They deserve to fly around and enjoy life!
Choose from Elden Ring, Spider Man, Rocket League, Overwatch, Lego Harry Potter… the works!
Sizewise, each came is around 3cm high by 2.5cm wide, not taking the chain into consideration.
Each game is made from Polymer Clay and has a slick satin gloss on it. Pretty neat, huh? Just don’t try to open them!
God of War is, and always will be, one of my favourite games to play on the PlayStation. We’re all excited for Ragnarök to hit the PS5, which is why The Art of God of War Ragnarök (Deluxe Edition) is on my Christmas list this year too!
This hardcover book is a jam-packed full of concept art and commentary from the people who have worked tirelessly to bring us the next title in the God of War series.
Not only that, it’s a visual means of capturing the story between Kratos and Atreus, the narrative of parenthood and the bond they build together as the game goes on.
If you love God of War, then this is the closest you can get to being in the shoes of the people that live and breath this title day in, day out.
And, it comes with two deluxe prints to put up in your house too!
From a deluxe book to a luxury duck, this TUBBZ Metal Gear Solid Snake Collectible Duck Figurine takes the next spot in our best Sony gifts article.
TUBBZ are certainly a favourite go-to gift in the Retro Dodo office. We’ve worked closely with the guys on a number of occasions (the creators, not the ducks) and even have a little TUBBZ that looks like Brandon.
Beak and all!
This Solid Snake collectible mallard is one of many gaming ducks on offer. What better way to recreate your favourite Metal Gear Solid scenes in the bath than with this little guy, huh?
It’s time for some more tech to take the stage. If you’re buying the best Sony gifts for someone who is just getting into gaming, then this Sony INZONE M9 27″ Gaming Monitor is a definite must have.
See every blow, shot, and slash with detailed highlights, shadows, and enhanced contrast.
Normal monitors can’t even hope to compete with the amount of pixels in this bad boy either. We’re talking four times the amount, with 4K resolution to boot!
There are over a billion colours, all perfectly shaded and visible with virtually zero screen tearing thanks to the HDMI 2.1.
And don’t worry about lag; see everything as it happens with immediate reaction thanks to the impressive GtG response time of 1ms.
Long story short – this monitor makes games look awesome.
This PlayStation Hat has no lag technology or any anti-screen-tearing features. It’s just a hat, but it looks slick and covers your head.
Which, if you’re bald like me, is pretty useful once it gets cold.
I like hats that have simple logos. I especially like hats where the logos are off centre and a little bit more interesting.
Can you see why I’ve picked this snapback now?
It’s adjustable, it’s simple, and it’s affordable. That’s all any of us need to know!
Next up on our best Sony gifts list is one for the retro gaming fans. The Sony PVM-14M is the greatest of all CRT TVs.
It’s a good looking bit of kit too, making any gaming station 89% more attractive immediately.
Don’t quote me on that tenuous fact.
These monitors are built to last and work with Lightguns too. Oh yes, we’re talking Duck Hunt all the time baby!
The 13″ screen might be a little lame in comparison to the 65″ one above, but with these 600 lines, your retro games will look smooth and defined and not stretched out like they do on modern TVs.
Donkey King 64 on a 65″ TV would make your eyes pop!
My mate Josh chews his controllers and his game cases when he’s stressed. Don’t be like my mate josh; get this PS5 Sony Stress Controller.
Keep it nearby whenever you’re gaming; throw this controller against the wall instead of your super-expensive PS5 controller, and then squeeze it tight when the final boss defeats you AGAIN.
It looks like a PS5 controller, it’s shaped like a PS5 controller, but it’s made of foam.
I think that’s money well spent, don’t you?
Gaming clothing can easily be pretty tacky, but this PlayStation Japan 1994 Hoodie looks pretty darn suave in our opinion.
This officially licensed Ripple Junction Playstation 1994 hooded sweater is perfect for any gamer. It’s unisex, it’s comfortable, and it’s cool enough to wear outside the gaming room in real society.
I think it’s the slightly retro feel that gives it the edge over other PlayStation jumpers, and the perfect item for taking off the chill in Winter.
Now this… this is tacky. Still, who wouldn’t want to sip their morning brew from a Playstation Gold Controller Coffee Mug?
I can guarantee that everyone will know that this is your mug, and you’ll spot it a mile away if anyone tries to claim it as their own.
If you hate not having a controller in your hand, then that handle is going to scratch that itch too.
It’s a little bit of fun and a definite winner when it comes to stocking fillers!
I’m not saying that this Spyro The Dragon Coaster will help to keep your drinks from from the heat in his fiery belly, but it might be a bonus.
Just check out how cool this coaster it. It’s a slick little home gift for anyone who loves Sony’s answer to the cutesy Nintendo games of the 90s.
Stick it on your coffee table or use it as part of a splash back tile piece along with all the others available on Etsy. The choice is yours!
Let’s not forget about the PS4 though guys. It’s still a mighty machine and deserves some love in its old age. Treat it to a new DualShock 4 Wireless Controller for PlayStation 4 and play Biomutant, Ghost of Tsushima, and more in style.
The analog sticks on this remote are fantastic, and thanks to a variety of colours, you can match it to your phone, console colour, favourite hat, or more.
Recharge by plugging into your PS4 or via any cable when not in use. It has speakers built in and a slot to stick a headset directly into.
I mean, what more could you want!
Just remember where you’ve put the camouflage one; that could be hard to find once you’ve put it down!
