This the season of giving – which means CHRISTMAS PRESENTS!! (Yes, I all caps, I love Christmas that much.) Here at CIPT, to get into the festive we thought it would be a stellar idea to get a guide together for the gamer in your life.

Obviously, everyone is different and we respect all varieties of disabilities. However, it would be impossible for us to think of things alone! So we’d like to thank Cherry (@cherryrae on Twitter) as well as GrendelsMater (@ReQuestioning on Twitter) and everyone else on Twitter who helped us out with gift ideas.
