New DualShock 4 Wireless Controllers
One can never have too many controllers, and Sony just released some gorgeous new PS4 controllers last year, any one of which would make a lovely gift. Whether you go for Rose Gold, Electric Purple, Titanium Blue, or Red Camo, these DualShock 4 wireless controllers make a stunning addition to any collection, and an extra controller is always handy as a backup or for any local multiplayer game.
DualShock 4 Controller with Fortnite Neo Versa Bundle
Fortnite is the biggest video game in the world right now, and if your loved ones are still hooked on it, this DualShock 4 and Fortnite bundle is an excellent gift. Aside from the extra Jet Black PS4 DualShock controller, they'll also get the Neo Versa Bundle card, which they can redeem for PlayStation-exclusive in-game items including the Epic Neo Versa Outfit, the Epic Neo Phrenzy Back Bling, and 500 V-Bucks. You can buy the bundle at Amazon.
DualShock 4 Back Button Attachment
This attachment adds two new buttons on the back of the DualShock 4, which can potentially improve your gaming experience with certain games. You can map the two new buttons to any digital button on the controller, and the included digital screen lets you see which button's mapped to map, but also lets you swap among different presets. The attachment uses the headphone jack on the DualShock 4, but don't worry--it's passthrough, so you can still hook up a headset to it. It's great for games with intricate control schemes or fighting games like Street Fighter V.
PlayStation Gold Wireless Headsets
PlayStation's first-party wireless headsets are a solid, affordable choice for PS4 owners, offering 7.1 virtual surround sound and hidden, noise-canceling microphones for online play. This headset easily links up with your gaming console of choice, but also on PC, PlayStation VR, and mobile devices. Even better: There's a Rose Gold version too, and if you know someone who's a fan of that color, you could gift it alongside the matching Rose Gold DualShock 4. Honestly, headphones this good don't even need a game console to justify them.
Astro Gaming C40 TR Controller
The regular DualShock controller that ships with every PS4 is a fine option for the everyday game fan, but Astro's C40 TR controller is a major upgrade. This is a high-end controller designed to perform better in competitive games, especially shooters, due to its programmable buttons and ergonomic design. In our Astro C40 TR review, Michael Higham called it "the best 'elite-style' controller" for the PS4 so far. You can buy it at Amazon for an admittedly hefty $200, but it's perfect for the competitive gamer in your life.
Seagate 2TB External Hard Drive
An external hard drive isn't the most exciting use of your credit card, but considering how pricey they can get and how useful they are, you can bet most gamers are happy to get one. This Seagate external hard drive provides 2TB of extra storage and can store over 50 games.
PlayStation VR Bundle
If they've expressed interest in a VR headset, there are plenty of PlayStation VR bundles available that come with a set of great games along with the headset itself. This bundle includes PlayStation VR Worlds, Skyrim VR, Resident Evil 7, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, and Everybody's Golf VR.
SCUF Vantage 2 Call of Duty Modern Warfare Wireless Controller
The SCUF Vantage 2 is a highly customizable DualShock controller designed for high-performance gaming. It features four interchangeable rear paddles and two removable side action buttons that can be remapped according to preference. Its ergonomic design and textured grip also allow for more comfortable gaming over an extended period of time. This limited-edition Call of Duty: Modern Warfare SCUF Vantage 2 controller, which released alongside the new game for $220, not only has a cool design, but it also unlocks an in-game item, a sniper scope charm, for the Modern Warfare. If they're not into COD but would appreciate the controller, there are more designs available for a bit cheaper on SCUF Gaming's website.

But if they have a PS4 Slim, the base version of the console, they definitely won't be complaining when you surprise them with this limited-edition PS4 Pro bundle. Not only is this a more powerful system, but it also features a striking design inspired by Death Stranding. The bundle includes a copy of the game as well as a custom Death Stranding controller, which makes it a rare deal at $400--but you'd better purchase it quick, because this deal sells out almost immediately anywhere it pops up.

Its list price is $25, but it's often on sale for less at Amazon.
