PS4 Gift Guide 2018 – Scuf Vantage Custom PS4 Controller
The Scuf Vantage controller might be a little pricey when compared to normal DualShock 4 pads, but the premium price buys you a lot of premium features. Scuf allows users to fully customize a controller with a multitude of colors and impressive gameplay-enhancing tweaks. Paddles on the rear of the pad come in extremely handy in a shooter like Call of Duty Black Ops 4, as do the Trigger Stops and Scuf Grip. What’s more, the ability to switch out various parts means it should last the test of time, where standard controllers would fall flat.

PS4 Gift Guide 2018 – Collective Minds Strike Pack F.P.S. Dominator
If the Scuf pad isn’t within your gift-giving budget, perhaps look at the Collective Minds Strike Pack F.P.S Dominator, which attaches to a controller to add paddles and other Scuf-like functionality. It’s an incredibly good value buy, as it allows a lot of the Scuf advantages without breaking the bank. (I’ve personally tested this and can vouch for its performance. Please avoid the rapid fire hacks in online games, though!)

PS4 Gift Guide 2018 – SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless Gaming Headset
If you want to get the best set of PS4 headphones available, you need to pick up the Arctis Pro Wireless. Though their price may be steep, this pair of wireless headphones perfectly combines ease-of-use with must-have features. If wirelessness isn’t mandatory, then you can save a pretty penny by opting for the Arctis Pro + GameDAC which is just as brilliant, albeit wired.

Buy Arctis Pro + GameDAC: Amazon – $249.99
PS4 Gift Guide 2018 – Sony PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset (2018 Edition)
