Got a Gamer in Your Life? Surprise Them with a Customized Skin


You know the signs of a hard-core gamer. Your son or daughter spend most of their free time in the basement, away from the sun, and playing the same game for 4, 5, 6 hours straight on the weekends. Only coming up for food, they immediately head back downstairs to continue playing for the rest of the night and sometimes well into the morning. They have the best system, all of the best games, and no other hobbies – which makes buying them birthday presents more than a small challenge. Maybe you feel like you’ve bitten off more than you can chew when buying a gift for the gamer in your life. If you don’t want to make the same mistake of buying them a game they already have again, it’s time to think outside of the box and get them something to go around the box; surprise them with a customized skin.

A PS4 skin hasn’t quite hit the mainstream yet, making it an incredibly cool and unique gift to get them. But who cares about their social cache if you don’t understand what they are, right? PlayStation 4 skins are stylized pieces of vinyl that fit over the console and its controllers. Coming in a variety of colors and textures that can be combined in completely unique ways, they add a huge twist of flair on the average looking PS4. To see what sort of options are available, click here to check them out. You can click through the build-a-skin feature until you’ve created a personalized skin according to your son or daughter’s favorite colors.

They’re applied similarly to a sticker but without any of the messy glues, making them incredibly easy to attach and take off. That means if your son or daughter doesn’t apply it right the first time, there’s no harm in peeling it off and trying again. It also means you can buy them a whole set of differently colored PS4 skins for them to interchange when the mood arises.

A PlayStation 4 skin will definitely make their console look like it’s been customized specifically for them, but that’s not all it will do. It also protects the PS4’s outer shell from any scratches and wear that can damage the chassis and devalue the system you spent so much money on. The vinyl is strong enough to stand up against sharp edges, rough objects, and even a little bit of spilled liquid. The impervious material causes pop and water to bead against its surface, making any accidental spills easy to clean up. Your basement’s carpeting isn’t so lucky, but at least the PS4’s delicate motherboard won’t get fried.

Protected and stylish – it’s the start of a great gift for your little gamer. So start looking at skin styles now. It doesn’t matter if you’re early or late in looking for a present. You can design the perfect skin online, get it sent to your door with express shipping, and give a surprisingly cool gift for your child. Finally!
