the holiday season is so close you can practically taste it. And with shipping delays expected due to the ongoing pandemic-related supply chain issues, now is the time to order presents for that special person in your life who loves PlayStation. 

The (still) extremely hard-to-get PS5 may be top of your to-buy list, but just in case it doesn’t arrive on time, we have a ton of other gift options as a backup—from some of the best games for PS4 and PS5 right now to supporting gear for both consoles and merch that runs the gamut. 

For more ideas, be sure to check out our list of great PS4 games to play, gifts for PC gamers, gifts for Xbox owners, and our many other holiday gift guides and buying guides. Happy shopping, WIRED ones.
