Have friends bitten by the poker bug and don’t know what gifts to give them?
If you’re a poker player, this shouldn’t be a iai to you. You will no doubt have ideas on where to go, what to buy, how much the gift would cost – that sort of thing. It would simply be a matter of picking the right poker themed gift for the right person, and that’s it.
But what if you don’t play the game? It could really be a bit of a challenge to figure out what gift to give to a poker player when you don’t play the game yourself.
Good thing there are a lot of gift recommendations from different sources like home TV shopping, magazines, friends, and the internet!
It’s actually quite surprising how fast different poker themed merchandise have widened its range nowadays. It’s not just limited to poker sets, poker chips or poker tables. Although these ideas are really good ones, it’s actually good to know now that poker gifts can have much more personality and pizzaz.
But more than concentrating on the poker theme or giving “something poker,” the personality and preference of the recipient should always be considered when buying the gift.
Here’s a list gifts for Him and for Her:
For the Ladies
- A Poker Necklace
You can never go wrong with jewelry as a gift to a woman. Yes, there are poker themed necklaces out there. All you just have to do is pick the right pendant for your poker player lady friend. Poker themed pendant designs could be a poker chip, dice, or a pendant with the words “All In.”
- A Key Ring
The lady will always have a chip when she sits in a chair with a poker-chip key ring. Whether you go glassy with a sterling silver poker key ring or just a fun one with a colorful poker chip, it’s a lock.
- Poker Pajamas
All you have to do is just pick the color and poker design for her. When the game is over, whether she wins in the table or not, she’ll enjoy a good night sleep on her new poker PJs.
- Baby Tee Shirt
Not just any baby tee of course. There’s a lot of different design ideas especially made for the lady bitten by the poker bug. You could choose the shirt that either has the printed words “I’m All In” or “I’m Worth The Gamble.”
- Poker Books For Women
Be careful though when giving this to a lady friend. If you’re a female giving this as a gift to another female who is either an enthusiast or a poker professional, then it should be alright. But if you’re from the opposite sex and you’re giving this to a female friend, just make sure that you don’t send the wrong signal of calling attention on her poker skills.
For the Men
- A New Poker Table
Nothing beats a shiny, well-crafted poker table. Whether your poker buddy already has his own table, I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t mind having another one. The only problem there would probably be is the space. If that’s the case, go for the portable poker table then.
- Poker Chips
There are different types of quality poker chips, depending on the material they are made from. If you want to give it as a gift, you can choose from either the clay, metal, silver or ceramic variety.
- Poker Set
This is probably the ultimate gift one could give to either a poker enthusiast or a pro.
- Subscription for a Poker Magazine
Any poker wannabee and pro wouldn’t want to miss the events on the poker arena. Give them a year of subscription to a good poker magazine and get them updated on the latest tournaments.
