Xbox Design Lab Wireless Controller + Engraving Digital Code
This I believe is one of the best gifts for an Xbox fan. This is a digital code that one can redeem at microsoft’s Xbox design lab site, and this lets you customize your controller the way you want. Also, there’s an option to engrave your name, gamer tag or any custom tag on the controller, for more personalized controller.
The controller included is the new controller that can also be used for gaming on a Windows 10 PC via bluetooth (no adapter needed).
Currently this is available only only in US and can be ordered only from Microsoft Store site. You can get this digital card without engraving as well with $10 less.
Xbox Live Gold Subscription
When you’re gifting Xbox live subscription to someone then you’re giving them an ability to play online with their friends, plus they gift free games every month.
Also, there are Xbox Live Deals with gold every week, for gold subscribers only with games on discounted rates.
Best part is they stack up. So even if someone already is subscribed to Gold, this will add more days to their existing subscription. For example, a 12-month subscription will extend their existing subscription by another year.
You can either get a 12-month subscription or if you’re looking to spend less amount there’s an option for 3-months or 1 month subscriptions as well.
PDP Energizer 2X White Charging system for Xbox One
Get away with the AA batteries and use the PDP Energizer charging system. This is white colored so will complement Xbox One S white console very well. As it charges two controllers at a time you’re always ready with a backup of a spare controller or just use two together while local multiplayer.
Plus, it looks cool.

Whether you want to gift Xbox One to a first time buyer, or if someone is looking to upgrade Xbox One console to new Xbox One S console, then you can choose one of the bundles.

Also, it comes in various options of storage such as 500GB, 1TB and 2TB (as above). Cheapest option is the 500GB console, and I personally think it’s the best option. If you want to increase it’s space just connect any external USB 3.0 drive to it via usb port and done. Here is a list of Best External Hard drives for Xbox One.
