Gifts for Card Players

Guest Author - Robin Rounds Whittemore

Do you know a poker player or anyone who just enjoys playing cards and other games? If you are one of those people who suffer from gift giving anxiety, donít let it get you down this year. Here are some ideas for gift giving to game-playing people.

For many card players, an automatic shuffler, cards, poker chips and a poker chip holder would be great gifts to receive. There are also plastic card holders to consider as well as matching pitchers with glasses to serve card playing guests. Coasters might be a good addition to the pitcher and glasses idea. Books on playing card games of all kinds would be a welcome addition, or even a stocking stuffer.

There are many household items that have playing cards or the suits on them for decoration. Everything from shower curtains and other bathroom accessories to snack sets come decorated with card faces, or diamonds, spades, clubs and hearts.

You can shop online as well as at your favorite brick and mortar store. If you find a store or online purchasing place, to save time and possibly money, you may want to see about having the gifts shipped right to the recipient.

One idea for a poker playing gift basket starts with a foundation of a wooden bucket to hold the gifts. In the bucket, you can place a deck or two of cards, poker chips, a box of microwave popcorn, and two different cans of nuts. You might want to save room for a couple of ashtrays for the players who smoke. After the gift has been opened, the bucket could serve as a storage unit for the cards, chips, and ashtrays.

Another idea for a game playerís gift basket could start off with a base of a storage container packed with game playing goodies. You should be able to fit in a couple of decks of playing cards, a solitaire book, a logic puzzle book, a Sudoku book, and about 5 dice. You could also put a pencil box filled with sharpened pencils and erasers in the storage container.

For the aspiring magician, you definitely want to start off with a couple of decks of playing cards, a card magic book, a learn to juggle set, complete with juggling balls; and also some lightweight scarves for juggling. You may also want to include a magic book that has many different types of illusions that can be performed at different levels.

People who love to throw parties and have good old fashioned game nights should receive gifts like board games, decks of cards, pens, pencils, scoring pads or fancy notebooks for scoring. Books on different group or party card games might come in handy for these entertainment loving people.
