This post may contain affiliate links or I may have received the product free in exchange for my honest review. See full disclosure for more information.

The 80s were such a wonderful time. This was the era of the mixtape, the Walkman, funky clothes, and of course, video games. Of all these things, Arcade games (pinball machines for example) managed to stand the test of time, and they still have a huge following to date.

So, what type of gift do you get a diehard arcade game enthusiast?

  1. Tetris LED Desk Lamp

This LED table lamp would be a perfect gift for the ardent Tetris fan who just can’t get enough of the game. There is something so therapeutic about stacking up those pieces while playing Tetris, and now, you can do the same with this lamp.

The unique lamp comes with seven interlocking pieces that you can take apart and re-stack in any configuration of your liking. The seven parts all light up in different colors making for a very festive and eye-catching addition on your desk.

  1. Gameboy Phone Case

Did you know that there is a Gameboy phone case out there that plays Super Mario? Well, now, you do. Besides Super Mario, this game boy has a ton of other games include the Arcade classics such as Tetris, Donkey Kong, etc. In case you are wondering how many games there are, they are 36 in total.

Everyone could always use a new phone case, which is precisely why this would make for a practical and thoughtful gift. Better yet, now you don’t have to stay bored just because your phone charge has run out. Simply flip it over and voila! Gameboy.

  1. Arcade Game-Inspired Keyring

An arcade game keyring would also make for an excellent gift for the arcade enthusiast in your life. This keyring is not only nostalgic and great to look at, but it is also functional, seeing as it is a gaming console as well.

You can get a keyring that has Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Galaxian, or Ms. Pac-Man. The tiny games are pocket-sized for convenience and easy portability, so you can always have your favorite arcade game on you at all times. All you need are two AAA batteries, and you are good to go.

  1. Pac-Man Watch

Do you remember the thrill of dodging ghosts while munching on delicious dots? Sigh. Pac-Man sure does bring back a lot of nostalgia. You might not be able to play the game anymore, but that’s not to mean you can’t have a constant reminder of how much fun your childhood was.

This Pac-Man inspired watch is a classic timepiece designed by Romain Jerome. The Pac-Man maze is set against a reflective black dial, and the walls of the watch are even raised to give the maze a 3D effect. If you are trying to find a timeless gift for an arcade enthusiast, then nothing could possibly beat this watch.

  1. Retro Themed Clothing

How about a retro Super Mario Necktie? Or a foosball tee? Pac-Man shoes, perhaps? There is a ton of clothing out there inspired by arcade games so you can find something which best suits the person you have in mind.

Some arcade game enthusiasts would like to shout their allegiance from a mountaintop, letting everyone know that they are ardent fans of a particular game. And why wouldn’t they? Being good at an arcade game shows that you had a life before the digital era. So why don’t you say it loud and say it proud with a graphic foosball t-shirt?
