Frugal Board Game Gift Ideas

Guest Author - Lynn Little

Board games make perfect holiday gifts since it is something that can be enjoyed over and over again. Since retailers will be slashing prices on games this year, it means that board games are now more affordable than ever. With businesses clamoring for your hard earned dollar, there might not be a better time to grab up some great board games.

Board games have been advertised as low as $6. These are usually kids' board games like Chutes and Ladders, Memory, and Cooties. This is still a great price to give games that have been around for years and are still quite popular today.

There are many games that are priced under $10. While these games have been around, they are still very fun to play. Chances are pretty good that you can find Monopoly, Sorry, and other great games this holiday for a very low price.

Many businesses or web stores have a clearance section. They usually contain items that either aren't selling well or being replaced with an updated version. Old edition of games can be found in these clearance bins at greatly reduced prices. Some of these games might be titles you haven't even heard of. But that doesn't mean you should overlook it altogether. Ask the sales clerk or search for reviews online to see what others have said about the game. You might find a gem of a game that someone you know will absolutely love.

You don't have to buy a game to give one this Christmas. Make your own Scrabble or Checkers board to give to someone. You can crochet or knit a checkerboard and playing pieces. Use some scrap wood to make a Scrabble set. If you are crafty then you can use that skill to make a classic board game. Your friend will love it because it is a one-of-a-kind gift made especially for them.

Buy a board game that is meant to be played with at least four people. Keep the game and make game night coupons to give to your friends. Agree to host a game night at least four times within the next year for the sole purpose of playing the game. Maybe your friends will rise to the challenge and host a game night to play the game that was bought for everyone. This way you can enjoy a fun game and have the budget to buy it. Everyone can enjoy it, too. Being together is the best gift of all. A group board game can bring everyone together the whole year.
