It’s that time of the year! It’s time to spend tons of money buying gifts for others and for yourself. Fortunately, here at Xbox Enthusiast, we have you covered! We have come up with several items that we believe you will love this holiday season. Take a look below, and let us know in the comments what other items you think would make a great gift this holiday!
Monthly boxes are all the rage at the moment. There are box subscriptions for dogs, comics, gaming, and even shaving! There just seems to be a monthly subscription for basically everything you can think of. If you are looking to gift someone a monthly box, Lootcrate is the way to go. Each month focuses on a specific theme. “Spy”, “Villains”, “Heroes”, “Summon”, and “Anniversary” have all been previous themes in the past. Shirts, POP Figures!, novelty and useful items can all be included in a Lootcrate. Having been a member for about a year, I can say that there is something for everyone to enjoy in a Lootcrate. I always look forward to the end of the month. You never know what you’re going to get, but that’s just part of Lootcrate’s charm.
The Xbox One Elite Controller is the way to go if you know a gamer who wants that slight edge over the competition. The $150 peripheral makes shooters and racing games play a lot smoother. With customizable analog sticks, D-pads, paddles, lockable triggers and mappable buttons, the Elite Controller is a must have for Xbox One owners. The controller even comes with its own carrying case. It’ll be hard to look at another controller the same way after using this awesome accessory.
Cameron Stewart, Brendan Fletcher and Babs Tarr took Batgirl in a brand new direction last year. The pitch black tone from previous story arcs were gone while a more vibrant and playful feel took over. Babs Tarr’s art is absolutely wonderful while Stewart and Fletcher have created an interesting script with plenty of twists, turns, and memorable moments. Comic fans of all ages will enjoy Volume 1 of their current run of Batgirl. It comes with issues #35-40 and Secret Origins #10. If you are looking into getting into the comic book scene, this is a great book to start your collection.
iZombie is one of my new favorite shows on TV. Based on the Vertigo comic series of the same name, iZombie follows Liv Moore, a medical student who attends a party that suddenly becomes overrun by zombies. She becomes a zombie after the attack and must survive on brains or she will go “full on” zombie. What is so cool about this show is that no episode feels the same. Sure, it is a procedural crime drama like many shows on TV, but each brain gives Liv a new personality that makes each episode seem unique. Rose McIver, the actress who plays Liv always brings her A-game in every episode. iZombie is also absolutely hysterical. Fans of Veronica Mars will feel right at home since iZombie is also created by Rob Thomas.
