Summer is here and card games are exploding in popularity. Perhaps you are planning on giving a gift to a card gamer this summer. This list will cover the 9 essential gifts for card gamers this summer.
Here are the 9 essential gifts for card gamers this summer:
9. New card sleeves
Card sleeves are used a lot when playing card games. Long term players usually have lots of decks and are always working on something new which they’ll need sleeves for. If you know what colors or artwork the person likes then picking them up a fresh pack of card sleeves is a great and simple gift that is hard to get wrong.
8. A new playmat
Playmats are used by TCG players as… a playing mat. They are nice surfaces to play on and let you show off some cool artwork. This gift probably isn’t the best idea for long term players as they might have a few already, but if a player is new, then picking them up a playmat with some cool artwork they like will be sure to make them happy.
7. Deck boxes
Just like sleeves, another deck box will be appreciated by new and established players alike. If you know the themes they like playing in their favorite TCG, dragons, elves etc. then you can pick up a deck box with some artwork or a color that will match this theme. You can always ask them what their favorite deck is.
6. The Nomad: The outdoor playmat
Give the gift of playing cards outdoors this summer with the Nomad, an outdoor and travel playmat.
The Nomad allows players to take their game outside and enjoy the awesome summer weather! The Nomad has straps so players can keep their deck and other cards in place during play.
If you know someone who travels a lot to card gaming events then this is also a great option for them as the Nomad can be used during travel to playtest, deck-build, and organize cards.
This is a brand new product so it’ll be a really cool surprise for a gamer this summer.
This one is a good option for both long term and new players. Players use binders, portfolios, and albums to showcase their collections. Almost every player has a ‘trade binder’ with cards they are happy to trade with. New players will be happy to have somewhere to put their most treasured cards and long term players will be happy to have another binder where they can flex some of the coolest cards in their collection. Based on who the gift is for you can get a simple clean design or pick up something with some cool artwork on it.
4. Custom playmat
What is better than a regular playmat you ask? A custom playmat! Get something special printed on a playmat and gift it to someone. You’ll really want to know what the person likes before you pick this option but a custom playmat gives you room to make a very thoughtful gift. You could even paint on a plain white playmat to give them something you’ve made yourself!
‘You can never have too many dice!’ is something that many gamers say. Pick up some awesome looking dice for a gamer and they will love you for it!
New players will be busy expanding their dice collection and cherish any set of dice that you give them. Even though you can never have too many dice, if your gift recipient has an incredibly large collection of dice then you might get more mileage out of other gifts.
2. Custom Card Sleeves!
Want to give a gift that will really be remembered for a long time? Print some custom sleeves to gift to a gamer this summer! The options are endless with custom sleeves and there is lots of room to create something really thoughtful. Print a treasured memory you have with them, their pets, or whatever else you think they would love. Get creative with custom sleeves
If there is one thing that card game players love it’s cards! Cards are one of the best gifts you can give a card game player, whether you get them random boosters or specific cards they want players will always be over the moon with new cards. Just make sure you get cards for a game that they actually play!
