What to consider when buying Xbox One gifts for Christmas

Doubling up

Whenever you buy someone a gift, you run the risk of giving them something they already own. To avoid disappointment, it's a good idea to check with people close to the recipient of your gift to make sure your gift idea is suitable. This is especially important when purchasing Xbox-related gifts, as many games and accessories have similar-sounding names and lend themselves well to unintentional mix-ups. If you're concerned about doubling up, consider purchasing a Microsoft Store gift card or an Xbox Live or Xbox Game Pass subscription, as these provide value even if your giftee already owns them.

Compatibility

If you're looking to buy a controller, headset or other Xbox One accessory, it's worth double-checking to make sure it really is compatible with Xbox One. A lot of third-party hardware manufacturers create products for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and these can often look identical save for a tiny label on the front of the packaging. Some products are compatible across multiple video game platforms while others are locked to a single one, so be sure to read the fine print to avoid a trip back to the returns counter on Boxing Day.
