Christmas is around the corner, and wherever the holiday is celebrated, people are wide-eyed with panic because they’ve still got gift shopping to do. Always willing to help, we have put together a few ideas for gifts that those who enjoy casino games are sure to appreciate.
Whether the gambler in your life is a parent, sibling, friend, or colleague, you are sure to find something – even if what you find is the inspiration for something we have not included. Or if you love gambling too, you may well find something you want to treat yourself to!
Casinopoly Board Game
A versatile board game from Reveal Entertainment, Casinopoly works as a standalone game, and as an add on for Monopoly and similar board games. The board has been designed to fit in the centre of the famous property trading game’s board. Casinopoly includes four dice-based mini-games based on Roulette, Blackjack, Craps, and slots, and are sure to be an entertaining addition to traditional board games nights.
Gambling Charm Bracelet
Charm bracelets date back to time immemorial, but it was Queen Victoria who played a pivotal role in making them fashionable. More than a century later, the bracelets are still popular. A wonderful gift for the jewellery-loving female gambler in your life is a casino-themed charm bracelet that features charms such as dice, Poker chips, lucky 7s, and four Aces.
Gambler’s Charm Keyring
If the intended recipient is someone who would appreciate the charms but would not feel the same way about chunky jewellery, you could get them a gambler’s key ring. These themed key rings are decorated with charms and tokens such as dice, slot machines, playing card and card suit symbols, and range from the tasteful to the full-on Vegas flashy-light tacky.
Black Playing Cards
Available from Etsy sellers and specialist gift stores, black playing cards are the epitome of style and elegance for the informal gambler. They are guaranteed to make an impression on the friend or relative who receives them for Christmas. They are also sure to impress the recipient’s guests, whether they are there to play Poker, Blackjack or another card game. You can find decks featuring glossy designs on matte backgrounds and vice versa. Almost all decks available include 52 regular cards and two Jokers.
Traditional Good Luck Charm
A traditional good luck charm would also make a great Christmas gift for a gambler. If you have the money to spend, you may find exquisite specimens at antique stores or online. You also can find all sorts of interesting charms in esoteric and hoodoo shops. A few examples of traditional charms include Italian cimarutas, a precious stone linked to a zodiac sign or birth month, and a four-leaf clover. Some enterprising jewellery makers have created necklaces with pressed four-leaf clovers in glass.
Ace of Spades Cufflinks
If the gambler in your life is someone who wears cufflinks, a pair with a casino theme may well be the best gift they receive this Christmas. You can find online sellers that offer alloy cufflinks that look like miniature playing cards, and they are not just any old cards, either; they are the Ace of Spades.
Personalised Casino Chips
Personalised chips are another fantastic gift idea for someone who plays Poker or other casino games at home. They are available in an array of colours and materials from numerous suppliers online. Manufacturers can personalise them with text and with photos too, to give them that extra special look and feel.
