Creating the perfect gaming setup is exciting and an awesome way to express your individuality via your hobby. While most of us focus on the core components such as a good PC build, a comfortable and stylish gaming chair, and a versatile desk – we often forget about the little things that really bring it all together.
One of the best ways to spice up your setup and add your own personal flair is to get some cool desk accessories for gamers such as figures from your favorite video game series or functional pieces with gaming-related designs.
Today, we’re going to take a look at some of the best desk accessories for gamers to get their hands on.
Cool Desk Accessories for Gamers
The best gaming desk accessories are ones that reflect your own personal taste or needs. Whether it’s a nifty piece of gamer decor or something to hold or charge your beloved gaming equipment, there’s a TON of awesome accessories to pick from.
“Game Over” Pixel Desk Light
If retro or 8-bit-style is something that brings a smile to your face, then you’ll probably appreciate the simplicity and awesomeness of this unique, desk-size mood light.
This is a USB-powered light measuring 12 inches long and 6 inches high. The “over” portion of the light changes color (colors include red, blue, purple, and green) while the “game” wording remains stationary on white. It even features a sound-reactive mode that makes the light change color based on ambient music or sounds.
Elgato Stream Deck or Stream Deck Mini
The Elgato Stream Deck is definitely one of the most absurdly-popular desk accessories for gamers, especially for those that often stream on Twitch or even make YouTube videos.
This thing comes equipped with 15 customizable keys that can be used to do a variety of things including opening up apps, being mapped to act as hotkeys for a multitude of applications, operate as triggers for soundboard effects, and more.
The Stream Deck Mini is essentially the exact same thing, just in a more compact design and it only offers 6 customizable keys as opposed to the Stream Deck MK.2’s 15 keys.
Regardless of what you use it for, it’s a handy tool for PC gamers, looks pretty slick on your desk, and is one of the most sought-after pieces of gaming tech around.
NexiGo Gaming Organizer
Next up on the list is the NexiGo Gaming Organizer. This is an excellent choice for console gamers that have physical copies of their games, headsets, and controllers they want to keep in a tidy storage space on their desk.
The organizer is capable of holding up to 10 games for platforms such as PS5, PS4, Xbox Series S or X, and Nintendo Switch. It allows you to hang up to 4 controllers on it and 2 gaming headsets as well. To top it all off, it also features a small drawer on the bottom where you can store additional accessories.
This particular model is available in either white or black.
Hoyoki Power Strip Tower
Now let’s take a look at something that’s more practical, yet essential if you want to protect your electronics – a desktop outlet tower. The Hoyoki Power Strip Tower is one of the absolute BEST gaming desk accessories for PC and console gamers alike.
This tower features a whopping 12 AC outlets, 3 USB ports, and 2 USB C ports making it a killer source of power for all of your gaming gear, PC/console, monitor, phones, and more.
It also serves as a surge protector offering a beefy line of protection against up to 1500 joules. It saves space while simultaneously keeping your gadgets safe and cords manageable.
While it may not look super fancy or technically be something specifically for gaming purposes – a power tower like this is a gamer’s best friend and primary line of defense against frying all that we hold dear.
Magiacous Smart RGB Gaming Light Bar
Next up is an awesome and stylish way to ramp-up your lighting and ambience for your gaming desk setup – the Magiacous Smart RGB Gaming Light Bars.
This a set of two highly customizable light bars that look incredible, have some pretty nifty features, and are able to be positioned free-standing on your desk (horizontally or vertically), or even mounted to your gaming TV or monitor.
There are tons of light bars available to pick from, but few are as vibrant, customizable, or versatile as the Magiacous RGB gaming light bars. These bars are a great and affordable way to spice up your gaming desk space.
Screen Magnifying Projector for Mobile Phones
One of the best gaming desk accessories that doesn’t immediately come to mind is a screen magnifier for your mobile phone.
These come in varying sizes and styles, but the one we’re going to focus on is a battle-tested model that ups your screen-viewing to a modest 12 inches, comes in a few different colors, and has a stand that is a perfect fit for even the smallest gaming desk.
The Fanlory 12″ Mobile Screen Magnifier is great for gamers that like to keep a TV show or movie going during pregame lobbies or just want something that’s a cool gadget to keep on the desk and is useful.
OAPRIRE Universal Dual Controller Holder
Next up on our list of the best desk accessories for gamers is the OAPRIRE Universal Dual Controller Holder – an elegantly-designed, desktop controller stand capable of housing two controllers for Xbox or Playstation gaming platforms.
This is a heavy-duty, space-saving piece that provides an incredibly convenient spot to store your gaming controllers when they’re not in use.
It opens up space on your desk by stacking your controllers vertically on a stylish stand that looks great and is both sturdy and stable (no wobbling junk here). The dual controller holder from OAPRIRE is available with a black, white, or clear base.
Gamenote RGB Gaming Headset Stand
Another space-saver accessory worth taking a look for your gamer desk is the Gamenote RGB Gaming Headset Stand. This stand not only tucks away your favorite headset in stylish fashion, but it also doubles as a mobile charging station and outlet expansion tool.
The base is fitted with a light strip at the bottom that, of course, is RGB with 2 different light modes and 6 different lighting effects to boot. This makes the stand both a useful tool for your gaming headset and an awesome bit of flair to help put a touch of color and style in your gaming desk setup.
The base is also equipped with 3 USB charging ports and 3 AC outlets making it ideal for gamers wanting something that allows them to charge their mobile phone or other USB-powered devices, and open up additional power outlets for other electronics.
Overall, it’s designed beautifully, packs serious punch for functionality, and it’s an excellent way to store your headset when you’re not gaming.
MOOJAY RGB Gaming Monitor Stand
Looking for a way to free up space o your deck, lift your monitor up a bit, organize some of your items, and spice up your gaming area with some RGB? Then you’ll definitely want to check out the MOOJAY RGB Gaming Monitor Stand.
This is quite the multi-functional stand. Its primary purpose is to be a monitor riser stand for a gaming desk, obviously, but with the added 4 USB 2.0 ports, built-in storage drawer, RGB accent lighting, cell phone holder, and adjustable width – this is far from your average monitor stand.
For PC gamers, this is definitely one of the best gaming desk accessories to add to your wish-list.
Mr.Go Dimmable LED RGB Light
It’s not often that a seemingly simple light catches my eye and makes me immediately make a purchase, but scrolling through Amazon one day that’s exactly what happened when I stumbled upon the Mr.Go Dimmable LED RGB Light.
Why? Well, for me, it was the fact that it looked strikingly similar to a desktop, lighted Tesseract (yup – Marvel fan, here) and I just thought it was, without a doubt, one of the few cool desk accessories for gamers that I absolutely had to have.
Admittedly, the listing actually states that it’s intended to be a night light for kids or adults. But, come on… the thing is literally an RGB Tesseract cube with 16 different color options, dimming capabilities, multiple light modes, and a remote control. This thing is BUILT for gamers.
The light is available in multiple sizes, too. You can get this cube in 4, 8, 10, 12, 14, or 16 inch sizes. There’s also a 16-inch storage cube design that’s pretty awesome, although it’s a touch on the pricey side.
Divoom Ditoo or Pixoo Pixel Art Gaming Decor
Now we’re going to talk about two of the most unique and awesome pieces on our list of must-have gamer desk accessories – the Divoom Ditoo and the Divoom Pixoo.
The Ditoo is a nifty, retro-style, pixel art Bluetooth speaker with an LED screen. The screen displays pixel art which is highly customizable via the Divoom app which is available on both Apple and Android devices.
It also doubles as a Bluetooth speaker featuring super bass, 360-degree surround sound, and up to 10 hours of playback time on a full charge.
The Ditoo is available in pink, black, blue, green, red, and white and is one of the most unique decorative pieces you can add to your gaming desk, period.
The Divoom Pixoo is a bit different. The Pixoo has a much larger screen which, like the Ditoo, is used to display pixel art that either you create yourself within the app or download from the Divoom templates database which consists of 1,000s of designs.
The Pixoo can also be used as an awesome, pixelated smart clock, display weather readings, be used for decorative lighting, or be set to visualize your favorite music. It can technically be used for either your desk or as wall art – the choice is yours.
The Pixoo does not come in a number of different colors, unfortunately. The only option currently available is a standard black framing. Nevertheless, it makes for a pretty neat gaming room accessory or even just a cool gift idea for a gamer you know.
