Titles like Portal 2, Cuphead, or Spaceteam can be digitally gifted and played together whether you’re in the same room or thousands of miles apart. Just don’t give them Overcooked — that game destroys relationships.

Yes, it’s a stereotype, but it’s true, the typical gamer wardrobe consists of nothing but graphic tees and one pair of jeans.

From time to time, Japanese clothing brand Uniqlo would collaborate with different video game brands and companies, some of which included Fortnite, Blizzard Entertainment, and Dragon Ball.

Jewelry has been a symbol of the unending bond between couples for thousands of years. Also, it’s shiny.

Riot Games once released a Valentine’s Day merchandise collection, and it included a Xayah and Rakan set of matching bracelets. The accessories feature the pair’s respective Vastaya feathers. They also come in premium boxes with pull-out notecards that say “To My Rakan/Xayah.”

Alternatively, if you’re not a LoL fan, Fangamer sells a collection of video-game-themed jewelry.

A legendary skin of their favorite character

Some gamers refuse to pay money for cosmetic items like skins. If you know someone like that, why not buy them a premium skin of their favorite hero or champion?

They say the way to a gamer’s heart is through their stomach. Or something like that.

Put in the extra effort this Valentine’s Day and bake them a cake. Here’s a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (BotW) cake, which we made with a heaping cup of love and three tablespoons of happiness.
