The Xbox One controller is great, but if you stick with the one that comes with the console you're using the same thing as millions of other people around the world.
Why not treat yourself to a custom creation from Microsoft's official Design Lab, where there are more combinations on hand than you could ever try for about $70. Here are eight awesome designs courtesy of the Windows Central community.
