Getting the perfect gift for a friend or loved one for their birthday or during the holidays can be challenging. Unless they tell you what they would like you often have to dig through several gifts before you find the most suitable option. If the person in question is a gamer and you know their preferred console, then you might have an easy task ahead.
A thing to know about avid gamers is that they really appreciate their games and anything that will enhance their gaming experience is more than welcome. If the person you are shopping for has a PlayStation 5 there are a ton of great gift options that you can get for them (even if they have told you what they would like).
To help you decide what to buy we have come up with our list of top 5 gift ideas for people who own a PlayStation 5. For each item in our list, we have provided you with important information and links for each item to help you find the perfect gift.
Here is Our Countdown of the Top 5 Gifts for PlayStation 5 Owners:
We start out our list with an obvious gift to get for a gamer, which is games that he or she can play on their console. Several new PlayStation 5 games are coming out, and you need to know the genre your loved one enjoys when getting the perfect game for them. Among the genres, you can pick from are action, adventure, role-playing, sports, and simulation games.
If you are a gamer yourself you might already know the game preferences of the person you are shopping for. Conversely, if you are shopping from a list, remember that many companies release new versions of their games every 1-2 years so you probably want to be sure to look for the latest version of the game(s) you are shopping for.
When shopping for games it is also important to note that Sony released two versions of their new PlayStation 5 console. There is the PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition console. The difference between these consoles being that the PlayStation 5 has an optical disc drive for physical copies of the game while the Digital Edition doesn’t have an optical drive and is for those who prefer digital downloads of their games.
You should know the version of the PS5 console they have to make sure that you get a copy of the game (digital copy or physical copy) that is compatible with their console. Our article: Physical Video Game Copies vs. Digital Copies- Which is Better, can help you understand more about digital and physical game copies.

#4 Playstation Now Subscription
The next item on our list PlayStation Now is a cloud-based subscription service from Sony. Subscribers can access a huge library of PS2, PS3, and PS4 games that they can stream and play them online. For those who are worried about laggy gameplay due to a slower internet connection, there is also the option to download the PS2 games and over 300 PS4 games onto your console to play locally.
There are three subscription packages to choose from; the 1-month, 3-month, and 1-year subscriptions.
Before buying Playstation Now you should also check that the service is available in your country. As of January 2021 PS Now was available in 19 countries including the US, Canada, and the UK.

Coming in at number 3 on our countdown is accessories, which is actually made of several categories of items. Accessories are a tremendous gift idea especially for someone who just got their PlayStation 5 console.
When you buy a PlayStation 5 you get everything to need to begin playing right away. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t lots of accessories that could help enhance your gaming experience and allow you to customize or enhance your console.
Most PlayStation 5 owners are already aware of these accessories have their eye on at least of few of them – especially if they just got their console. If the PS5 is their first video game console a person might not be aware of all the accessories that are available, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t lots of accessories that they would appreciate or want.
Most accessories will be in one of the following categories:
- Charger for Controllers
- Cooling Stands
- Thumb Grips
- Carrying Cases
- Game Storage
- Faceplates, Protectors & Skins
- Gaming Chairs
#2 PlayStation Store Gift Card
If you have gotten to this point on our list and still haven’t found a good idea for a gift yet the PlayStation Store Gift Card might be just the thing you are looking for.
A PlayStation Store Gift Card is a prepaid card that can be used to purchase several items on the PlayStation Store platform. Among the things that can be purchased are games, add-ons, and the classic PlayStation games, which give you the traditional feeling of older generation games.
You can also purchase movies and television shows for streaming through the console. Giving someone a PlayStation Store gift card will give them the freedom to browse through a ton of choices on the PlayStation store platform, where they can find the games they want or movies they prefer.
There are two ways to go when purchasing the gift card, where you can go digital and get a redeemable code or give them a physical card that they can use for the purchases. Both of them work equally well.
You can find gift cards ranging between $10 and $100 dollars so you should be covered no matter what you are looking to spend. You can buy PlayStation Store gift cards from Amazon by clicking here.

This brings us to the #1 idea in our countdown of gift ideas…
#1 PlayStation Plus Membership
Our number one gift idea for the gamer in your life is a PlayStation Plus membership. This is one of the best gifts to give a PlayStation 5 owner, as it allows people to play multiplayer games online with their friends as well as people from around the world. Since so many games have parts that allow for online gameplay or are played online exclusively, a PlayStation Plus membership is probably the one thing that PlayStation 5 owners would have the hardest time doing without.
Another perk to enjoy from a PlayStation Plus membership is the access it gives you to free games each month. If the person you are shopping for is an avid gamer, they will certainly appreciate and look forward to the opportunity to try out new games from different genres every month.
The third thing members can also take advantage of is exclusive deals and discounts offered on things in the PlayStation Store.
There are three options to pick from when purchasing a PlayStation Plus membership, and they vary according to the time duration. You can choose from 1-month, 3-month, and 1-year options. The longer the term you go for, the better the value.
When giving it as a gift you might be concerned that the person you are buying it for already has a membership, but you don’t need to worry. If you buy a PlayStation Plus membership for someone who is already a member they can add the new membership to their current one and it will start up when their current one expires. Pretty much everyone who owns a PS5 will have a membership and keep buying them year after year. So you should feel confident that a PlayStation Plus membership will be something that the person receiving it will use.
