10 Best Christmas Gifts For Poker Players in 2022

Because I am passionate about poker, have been playing semi-professionally for more than ten years, and Santa knows it, I received Christmas poker gifts numerous times.

Some of them were excellent, others not so much.

Below you can find a list of the best Christmas presents for a poker player.

Each gift review includes the following:

  • A score (from 1 to 5) – shows how happy a poker player would be to get the present.
  • Pros and cons
  • Who is it for? – tells you what kind of player would be happy with this kind of present

Who is this Christmas gift for?

PokerCode is for players that like to talk about poker and be part of an Exclusive Community. 

If your friend would like to be a professional player, then being part of a training site like PokerCode is necessary. However, if they are just a beginner, it’s better to give them another present… for example a poker course or book.

Poker Artwork – Banksy

$39
Prices vary depending on your location
Meaningful
Motivating 
Makes you feel good
Cheap

Not everyone likes art
Art is subjective

Art is very subjective, it’s an expression of the author’s perspective. Everyone has different tastes.

So, before you get a piece of poker art, like the one from Banksy, make sure that the person is into it.

The Banksy painting is just a suggestion. There are more poker-related paintings that you can buy. 

I suggested this one because I love it! It’s meaningful and makes you think, especially if you are a poker player.

In poker, you often face money-related, emotional decisions, which is what that picture represents. 

Who is this poker Christmas present for?

This kind of Christmas present is for a romantic player who appreciates art. 

Poker Cash or Playing Account Deposit

Online account includes welcome bonus
Straight to the fun part
100% gift satisfaction guaranteed. Every poker player is happy to play a few hands.

Not for live players
Not available in some locations

There are a few things without which you can’t play poker. One of them is cash. If you are into giving money as a present, then go for it. 

To make it cool, put it into a poker money bag, or open a poker account and make a deposit if it’s for an online player. Make sure that the account is registered in the name of the person you give it to.

Also, almost all poker websites offer new customer bonuses, which adds an extra few $$$ to the present.

These days, the best welcome bonuses are offered by 888 poker and WPT Global.

Who is it for?

This Christmas gift is for someone for who the best part about this fantastic game is playing it. 

Poker socks

What could be the benefits of wearing poker socks? LOL… let’s try:

Who are the poker socks for?

Laptop

from $299
Prices vary depending on the type of laptop

A new laptop reduces technical issues while playing
Mobility – allows playing from anywhere

Expensive

Having good equipment while playing poker is critical. 

The time to make a decision is limited in online poker, and having technical issues while playing can have a massive impact on a player’s winning rate and performance.

Who is it for?

Someone that wants to switch from live playing to online games or an online poker player that needs a new laptop.

If you decide to go for this gift, make sure the laptop can be connected to a second screen. Poker players like to play on multiple tables simultaneously, and the second screen helps you with it.

Who is it for?

Many ideas are repeated in poker books
Not everyone likes to read

Poker books are packed with the author’s knowledge and experience. Often they spend years writing a book which shows how valuable the information included in a book can be.

You can also buy a subscription to Amazon Unlimited to get access to a bigger number of poker books.

There are over 100 poker books available with the subscription, and you can download all of them. This option is also cheaper because it costs around $10 per month.

Additionally, you can get them access to around 100 poker audiobooks with an Audible subscription. I have written an article about Audible that includes all the audio poker books available.

Who is it for?

Poker nerds that love reading books and have time for it.

Who is this poker Christmas gift for?

It is for anyone who likes to listen to music while playing, both live and online. 

A perfect introvert Christmas present who prefers focusing on the game rather than talking to others while playing.

I am a semi-pro poker player and have been playing since 2010. I specialized mainly in satellites for a long time. Nowadays, I play cash because it is hard to commit a few undisturbed hours to a tournament with my recently born son :)
