This year’s Highsnobiety Gift Guide is all about the presents that’ll make a difference in these new and strange times. From gifts that encourage connection with loved ones, to self-love suggestions you entirely deserve at the end of 2020.

If you're a non-gamer, buying well-received holiday gifts for gamers is a level most of us can't reach. A lot changes quickly in the world of consoles, and they're already done and dusted with the latest shooter you thought was a winner. The flip side of that coin, though, is that if you can find the right gaming present, you get extra Holiday-elf points this year. Sound good? We’ve put together a roadmap of gaming gifts for the uninitiated which will have you top of the leaderboard.

With a path so fraught with difficulties, it’s best to keep things general, though, so instead of delving into the uncharted depths of niche gaming, this guide offers up a broad view of guaranteed wins from some of the best gaming brands of the moment.
