Gifts to buy the PS5 fan right now: Headsets, controllers, games and gadgets

Here are the best headsets, games and gadgets to go with the in-demand next-gen PS5 console this holiday season.

The PS5 console and digital edition are sold out everywhere and people are scrambling to score a unit online or with in-person walk-ins at Walmart and GameStop. Some people have given up and plan to look in early 2021. Regardless, there are a lot of cool accessories available to go with the PS5. Some parents might decide that gifting a bundle of accessories with a handmade coupon the gift recipient can exchange for a PS5 console as soon as they're more readily available is the best they can do. 

And if you're lucky enough to have already purchased a PS5 console from a pre-order or a restock, then you're definitely in need of the right accessories to go with it. The PS5 comes with one controller in the box, but sometimes it's great to have a spare on hand, and it's essential for multi-player games like Diablo. You'll also need a charging station, altho the new PS5 version is sold out everywhere. Sony has produced the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset, but it's also sold out, although there is a bundle available from one retailer, below. The Arctis 7P wireless headset from SteelSeries is a fantastic alternative. And then you'll definitely want the new PS5 Media Remote if you plan to use the new console as a media center.
