Budget-Oriented Peripherals for Starters: TUF Gaming Combo K1 Keyboard + M3 Mouse for Php 2,880

If you know someone who just built a PC or bought a laptop for gaming, an entry-level gaming peripheral is a great gift to sweeten their gaming experience with their new machine. Sure, the TUF K1 is not a mechanical keyboard but its tactile feedback and typing experience are way better than your average USB keyboard and even your laptop’s chiclet switch. The K1 keyboard comes with a decent set of features namely its five-zone RGB lighting which can be configured via Armoury Crate, a dedicated volume wheel, and spill-resistance to make it last longer. And since it’s a gaming combo, the setup wouldn’t be complete without a dedicated gaming mouse for precise tracking in games. The TUF Gaming M3 is your standard ergonomic gaming mousses with seven programmable buttons and an adjustable DPI up to 7,000.

A Little Extra: TUF Gaming K3 Keyboard

If you want to be a little extra with your gift then you could opt for the bigger brother of the TUF K1, the TUF K3 is the mechanical keyboard variant with some upgraded features such as 100% anti-ghosting NKRO, USB 2.0 passthrough, and a magnetic wrist rest. The TUF Gaming K3 is available in Kailh Blue Switches and retails at Php 3,990

For Gaming and Productivity: TUF Gaming H3 Gaming Headset

The TUF Gaming H3 Gaming headset boasts an incredible value thanks to its massive 50mm ASUS Essence driver that delivers immersive audio sonic with 7.1 surround sound via Windows Sonic. Its lightweight design allows for long gaming or work session with comfort in mind. Compatibility is also a strong suit of the TUF Gaming H3 as it supports PC, Mac PS5, Switch, XBOX, and mobile phones. The analog unidirectional boom microphone on the TUF Gaming H3 is tuned specifically for voice communication making it not only for gaming but for online classes and virtual meetings as well. The TUF Gaming H3 is a great addition if you already plan to purchase the TUF Gaming Combo for an entry-level price of only Php 2,100

The Safe Bet: ROG Sheath XXL BLK LTD Gaming Mousepad

If you’re not sure of your recipient’s preference, then a gaming mousepad is your safest bet for a Christmas present. The ROG Sheath XXL Black is a great all-rounder gift due to its neutral white-gray-black color scheme and large 900x440x3mm footprint. Even if your giftee already has a mousepad, he/she can simply place it on top of the ROG sheath which serves as a desk mat. Its non-slip-rubber base and stitched edges guarantee a long shelf life which will probably last longer than the peripherals placed on top. The ROG Sheath retails for Php 1,800 and comes in the classic red ROG logo design.

For Work, Play, and Portability: ROG Keris Wireless

If you happen to know someone with a laptop, a tablet, and a PC in his/her desks or multiple devices in general, then ROG Keris Wireless is an exciting gift. The ROG Keris Wireless supports tri-mode connectivity allowing seamless switching between three devices in three different connections – wired, 2.4Ghz wireless, and Bluetooth 5.1.

With tri-mode connectivity, it’s like buying different mice for your devices but at a lower price of only Php 3,990.

All Rounder Audio: ROG Strix Go

Following our wireless recommendation with the ROG Keris Wireless Gaming Mouse and the TUF Gaming H3 Headset, the ROG Strix Go takes it to another level with its feature-set. The ROG Strix Go makes for a great gift idea for gamers sporting multiple platforms, especially the latest generation consoles with USB Type-C Connectivity. Weighing at only 262 grams, the ROG Strix Go’s foldable design enables long gaming sessions and on-the-go entertainment with physical headset controls on the earcups removing the need for software. Its 40mm ASUS Essence driver delivers rich, pure sound and optimized bass for an immersive experience. Packed in a compact and portable form factor is an AI Noise-Cancelling Microphone that filters every type of background noise from keyboard clatter, loud car exhaust, and noisy pets for clear and crisp in-game voice comms. Moreover, the removable bi-directional microphone is certified by leading communication apps such as Discord and TeamSpeak. At Php 4,990, the ROG Strix Go is a solid purchase for gaming and portable entertainment.

For The MKB Enthusiast: ROG Falchion

We’re saving the best for last as it’s also the most expensive item on our list. The ROG Falchion 65% Wireless mechanical gaming keyboard is a great addition for a gaming or keyboard enthusiast as it sports a rather uncommon 65% layout.  The ROG Falchion sits on the higher-end side of things with its ROG PBT doubleshot keycaps, CherryMX switches and polycarbonate keyboard cover Like the ROG Keris, the ROG Falchion also supports dual connectivity via wired and 2.4Ghz wireless modes with the latter lasting up to 450 hours of battery life.

What makes the ROG Falchion unique compared to other 60% or 65% mechanical keyboards is its Interactive touch panel on the left side which lets you adjust the volume or create app shortcuts for easier access. Moreover, the interactive touch panel on the ROG Falchion can also be programmed as a macro key to providing you with a gaming advantage. At Php 8,000 the ROG Falchion is truly a premium keyboard with unique features that make it pop and stand out with its 65% compact ROG design paired with the unique touch panel integration bundled with a keyboard cover case for added protection especially when you’re on the go.

Honorable Mention: ROG x IKEA

If you’re looking for something non-gamery to compliment your peripheral purchase, then the latest ROG x IKEA collaboration might have something that will spark your interest. We personally recommend the LÅNESPELARE insulated tumbler & cup holder as well as the UPPSPEL pegboard kit.
