The Xbox One is posed to have a strong holiday because the base model is selling for an all-time low of $180 and the Xbox One X is actually the most powerful console ever. I’ve reached a point where if I’m going to play a game on a console, I want to do it on the Xbox One X, and I think everyone who gets one during these holidays will probably feel the same way.

But whether you have to get a gift for a new Xbox One X owner, a new Xbox One S owner, or the fan still rocking their 2013 launch console, here’s some gift ideas to help you make their season bright.


Seagate Backup Plus 4TB Portable External Hard Drive

Price: $94
Buy from: Amazon

The Xbox One is excellent for adding external storage, and this 4TB USB 3.0 hard drive is on sale for the holidays. The Seagate portable drive sells for $130, but you can increase the storage of your Xbox One X by 400 percent for less than $100. This will enable you to keep all of your games installed on the system for whenever you need them — even the huge 4K 100GB-plus games.


Xbox One Elite Wireless Controller

Price: $150
Buy from: Target

This is still the best controller I’ve ever used, and I think it’s the best gift you give to anyone who plays a lot of Xbox One (or PC) games. The Elite gamepad is such a huge quality leap over everything else for every other system that I still get a little giddy every time I pick mine up.


Astro A50 Wireless Headset + Base Station

Price: $300
Buy from: Astro Gaming

The Astro A50 Wireless Headset is a little bit of overkill at this point. You no longer need a base station to connect wirelessly to an Xbox One with a headset, and yet I still really like it. For one, the A50s sound amazing, and I also love having a dedicated place to set my headset down that will also charge them back up for my next session.


Trutle Beach Stealth 600

Price: $100
Buy from: Best Buy

If you don’t want to spend $300 or need a base station, go with the Turtle Beach Stealth 600. It is wireless and doesn’t use a dongle, and it still sounds great.


Dolby Access

Price: $15
Buy from: Microsoft Store

If you get one of the headphones above, you should also get out your credit card and spend $15 to unlock Dolby Atmos. The Dolby Access app is available on Windows and Xbox One, and it can bring amazing 3D sound to your games and movies. It’s a big improvement and worth the money.
