Buying a gift can be stressful – how much should you spend?… what should you get?… where can you find it?… will it be something that goes down well? If you know what the person you’re buying for likes then that’s part of the battle, but you still need to decide exactly what to get. That is where I come in. I’m going to give you four great ideas for gifts and explain why the blackjack fan in your life will adore each of them.
#1 A trip to a casino they’ve never visited
I don’t blame you if you decide against this gift (it’s even the priciest one on this list of some gambling gifts) but I say start big and start bold – get the blackjack fan a trip to a swish casino, so they can test their skills out in a new environment.
The appeal of a casino trip is pretty straightforward – there’s no purer form of gambling than in a real casino; the sights, sounds, smells, and stress simply isn’t the same online. And taking your blackjack fan to a new casino is both exciting and challenging.
#2 Buy them one of the best blackjack books of all time
While blackjack is first and foremost about having fun, it’s not a lot of fun if you’re not making any progress in your game play. The only way the fan in your life will improve is by studying and the perfect way of doing this is to read a great book.
The list of best blackjack books of all time is very long and diverse. Picking the right book depends entirely on the type of person you’re buying it for. However, if you’re looking for one that will appeal to most people then I recommend Beat the Dealer by Dr. Ed Thorp – it’s a game-changer.
#3 Get them a really great blackjack film
Few simple pleasures are more enjoyable (for me at least) than settling down to watch a great film. You can ease yourself into your favorite chair, gobble-down mouthfuls of popcorn, and let your TV do the rest. With all this in mind, a blackjack film is an ideal gift.
Now, you may have your own ideas about exactly which blackjack film to get the fan in your life – there are lots of great ideas on this list. However, I’m here to advise you and my advice is that you opt for Swingers, a brilliant 1996 comedy with some exceptional gambling scenes.
#4 Invest in a money clip to help keep their winnings safe
As I mentioned earlier in this article, casino gambling is the peak of gambling – it’s where you really find out how good you are. Skill isn’t everything, but chances are that if you’re good at blackjack you’ll when some money. When you do make some wins you’ll earn some cash and you need a place to put it – step forward the blackjack money clip.
A money clip is a device that you put cash in to keep it safe and secure – much as you’d expect it to be. While this may sound like a dull gift, it’s one of the most useful presents you can get your blackjack fan. Why? Because it takes away the stress of having wads of cash loose on the table.
Whether you opt for a casino trip, book, film, or money clip you can be sure that you’ll be getting the blackjack fan in your life a great gift. All that’s left up to you now is decide which one to get and then buy it!
