There are plenty of great Christmas gifts for the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fans in your life.
Christmas is a time of giving, and what better gift than something related to their favorite video game? CSGO is extremely popular, and all sorts of merchandise and collectibles are available online. If you’re shopping for a CSGO fan, here are three great gift ideas to inspire you.
Paintings are a perfect way to show off a love for CSGO without raising too many questions. There are several artists who make art prints based on CSGO. These range from landscapes of popular maps to awesome stickers ripped straight from the game. Add in a picture frame and you have an amazing Christmas gift that any CSGO fan would adore.
If you want to really go the extra mile with your CSGO Christmas present, a handful of boutique artists make real-life versions of knives from the game. These can either be real knives with practical uses or artistic decorations to hang on a wall. Some real CSGO knives are even trainer knives in case safety is a concern.
If your friend or family member loves watching competitive CSGO, a pro jersey is the perfect gift to celebrate the Christmas season. Many popular teams including Natus Vincere, Team Vitality, and Team Liquid sell their team jerseys online. Try to find out which team they like or even their favorite player. Many teams even offer custom jerseys. Getting their favorite team with their own gamertag on the back will put a smile on any CSGO fan’s face.
If you’re not sure which esports teams your giftee supports, you can always stick with merchandise from the official CSGO store. You can grab t-shirts, hoodies, backpacks, wallets, and vinyl figures straight from CSGO’s developer. The vinyl chicken figures with customizable heads are always a hit, and if you want to take it a step further, you can get an ergonomic gaming chair. Many items even come with digital codes that grant exclusive in-game cosmetics. Your friends and family can appreciate your generous CSGO Christmas gift in real life and their favorite game.
Physical gifts but fans of digital content are more than happy to receive digital gifts. If you have a Steam account, you can purchase a skin from the Steam community market and send a trade offer on Christmas day. The most commonly used weapons in CSGO as of late 2021 are the AK-47, the M4A1-S, and the AWP sniper rifle. If you’re feeling especially generous, you can even send a reasonably-priced knife skin.
CSGO weapons skins can get extremely expensive, but there are options at every price range. To get a clear idea of prices, head to CSGOStash and browse for the perfect skin. For bonus points, grab a name tag for $1.99 and customize your CSGO Christmas gift with a special inscription. If you don’t want to go through the hassle of making a Steam account and learning how to gift skins, grab a Steam gift card and write the message “For CSGO skins!”
