If you have an Xbox gamer in your household or if you are one, you know that the desire for new accessories is always present. Several months into buying a console, the starter games will become boring, controllers will start malfunctioning and new gadgets will be released and the need to buy will come alive. Every time a great gadget enters the market, you can almost hear the collective gasps of millions of players wishing to lay their hands on it.

And what better way to put a smile on a gamer friend's face than hooking them up with any or several of the following Xbox accessories?

Xbox One Elite Controller Charging Stand

Wireless headsets are good, and all but they have a certain tendency to land under the bed or couch, or in the fridge, which can be frustrating. Gift your beloved friend with an Xbox One elite controller charging stand from Power which goes for only $40. The stand can fit two controllers and a headset and can be used for both charging and display. If your pocket is not that well lined, you can cop the slightly less fancy Insignia Elite Charging System station for about $20.

Xbox Custom Controller

Controllers are a significant part of the gaming experience, and you can show your Xbox player friend how much they mean to you by getting then an Xbox Custom Controller. You can purchase one from Microsoft or Amazon for about $80 for which you get access to the full range of Xbox One controller customizer features. The recipient can customize the thumbsticks, touch pads, D-Pads and even add their names on the surface for a full personalized look. Other controllers with Xbox customizing options include Evil Controllers (Xbox One) for $165, and Razer Wildcat, available at $70.

Xbox Gaming Headset

Headsets - quality headsets at that - are not necessary for Xbox gaming but are one of the elite accessories that can transform the experience for the better. Get your favorite gamer a set from premium brands such as HyperX, Turtle Beach and Razer. A pair of Turtle Beach's wireless Stealth 600 headset goes for $100 while the Razer Thresher Ultimates will set you back $250. Admittedly, good quality gaming headphones are quite expensive but seeing your pal's face light up when you deliver them is definitely worth every penny.

Seagate 2TB Game Drive

Very few people would include a hard drive in their list of preferred gamer accessories - well until they hear that the Seagate 2TB drive can carry 50 'heavy' games. Yes, the hard drive, available for $83 from your preferred online store, can comfortably store all your favorite games while offering seamlessly plug-and-play portability to make things fast.
