Great gift ideas for professional gamblers (or casino lovers).
Get some ideas on what to give the professional gambler for the holidays or a birthday with this quick guide. They take chances every day but you don’t have to with their gifts.
Disclaimer: Professional gamblers exercise discipline, bankroll management, are knowledgeable about odds, know their limits, and know when to walk away. If you have a gambling problem or know someone that does there are resources available for these individuals. Encouraging a gambling addict with additional gambling related gifts is not the purpose of this article.
Gambling related clothing: Things such as ties, jackets, and classy clothing that goes along with the casino lifestyle is always a nice touch to the gambler’s wardrobe. For a lighter side consider items with casino chips, dollar signs, playing cards, and slot icons on them.
Money holders: Professional gamblers have money. Give them a nice silver or gold money holder. Or for a more practical gift a new leather wallet. For the female gambler a nice clutch purse with a touch of gold or silver looks classy and holds the money.
Strategy guides: Depending on the speciality (sports betting, poker, blackjack, craps, roulette, slots, all of the above) there are books and guides available for every type of game. Consider these items a tool of the trade for those serious about making the best choices and bets in their careers.
Gift cards/casino comps: Some casinos offer gift cards or comps that are transferrable. These can be used to purchase merchandise, food, hotel stays, and in some cases bets or chips for use. For those that partake in online gambling or games of skill online such as poker, many sites offer gift cards and merchandise. Poker players especially will like these gifts if they play online.
Office items such as calculators, notepads, spreadsheets: Depending on what game or betting the professional enjoys they may benefit from tools such as these. Calculators for calculating bankroll management or odds, notepads to track spreads and odds in sports betting, and even spreadsheet software for those with a computer.
Memorabilia: Depending on their game of choice and place of play things such as casino signs, poker merchandise (like poker sets), casino related artwork or displays, and drinkware can all be creative and great gifts for the professional. For sports betters memorabilia from their favorite team or player such as jerseys, autographs, and photos can be a great thing for their home or work office.
The lighter side: Joke cards, “sexy games of chance,” fuzzy dice, and novelty games can be a creative gift for the professional with a sense of humor.
While this list isn’t all inclusive you can see there are a number of gifts that can be purchased for the professional gambler. Again if you have a gambling program seek help and note that most casinos, sportsbook betting lines, and online sites allow temporary or permanent self exclusions.
