Big Brand RGB Keyboard & Mouse Bundle
Cooler Master MS110 USB RGB LED Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Set (Price: Around £42)
The humble mouse and keyboard (MnK in some circles) has had many facelifts over the years, and Cooler Master have been at the forefront of innovation for gamers. For example, the MS110 bundle includes Cooler Master's linear Mem-chanical switches for improved responsiveness over normal membrane keys, which makes them very similar to professional-level gamer keyboards. Responsive keystrokes are important for gamers, as the faster they react - the faster they win!
The keyboard uses a sleek, floating key design with 6-zone RGB lighting and 3-zone RGB for the keyboard and mouse, respectively.
The MS110 keyboard also includes 26-key Anti-ghosting, which means if the player is mashing those keys during battle, they won't have any problems with game freezes, or crashes due to keyboard problems. The Windows Lock feature will keep their game on-screen, no matter what is happening on their desktop, as well as allowing full multimedia control while they are playing.
The MS110 mouse has been designed with classic pro-gaming aesthetic in mind, while being engineered to provide performance where it counts. The pro-grade optical sensor and adjustable DPI (dots per inch) allows the player to customise to their style & method. With up to 3200 DPI, ambidextrous shape, and overall comfort, the MS110 is mouse the perfect pairing. Both the keyboard and mouse in this bundle are designed to be rugged and tough, durable enough under the most demanding battle situations!

Marvo have been around since 2012, and have made their name known amongst gamers at all levels, being a Top 3 brand in some EU countries according to GFK reports. Small wonder, when they produce some of the best value and high performance gaming bundles such as the Marvo Scorpion CM420-UK.
The 104 mechanical keyboard comes complete with rainbow RGB with 21 modes of backlighting. For gaming, there's anti-ghosting, with N key rollover (NKRO) support, and the keys have a 3.8 ± 0.3 mm travel, rated to 10 million presses.
The CM420-UK mouse also comes with RGB lighting, 6400DPI for accuracy, and has 7 buttons (7D) for customisation. The sensitivity is also customisable, with 800 / 1600 / 2400 / 3200 / 4800 / 6400 dpi available for true personalisation during gameplay of different games and apps.
The high density and waterproof textile surface is perfect for precision playing, keeping the keyboard planted whilst allowing the player to skim the surface with the optical mouse.

Must-Have Gaming Stocking Filler
Cougar Bunker RGB Mouse Bungee with USB Hub (Price: Around £23)
During gaming sessions, the cord for a mouse can often get tangled with items on the desktop, such as USB hubs, which does not make for great gameplay. With this in mind, Cougar have developed the Bunker RGB Mouse Bungee, which not only keeps the cord exactly where the gamer needs it, but also works as a USB hub. The RGB lighting is easily controlled from the base itself, and the flexible cord groove ensures compatibility with virtually any mouse cord size.
The cord groove allows the mouse cord to move according to the direction of the gamer's mouse without tangling up with desktop items. The colloid suction pad keeps the bungee in place, no matter how intense the gaming session gets! The Cougar Bunker RGB has 14 preset RGB lighting options, and is ideal for a charging point or for plugging in a USB drive, having a 2-port USB built-in.
