9 Best Gifts for Pool Players
Pool players are a very fun and diverse group of people. Having a diverse group of friends is helpful as they can provide different perspectives on the game and new strategies to help improve your game. One type of player that you might have in your life is your significant other, who loves to play pool but doesn’t know where to start.
I know what you are thinking, and it’s a great question, “What should I get for him or her?” While it is extremely difficult to determine the best gift for someone so far gone, my top 10 suggestions will make them smile.
Magic ball rack
A few weeks ago, I had the distinct pleasure of watching a couple of my good friends play pool, preparing for their wedding anniversary. As they were breaking, they were extremely excited when they both got some solid shots at their opponents. I wish I could say what happened, but the room was quiet for the next few minutes. They then decided to loosen up and play extra casual, which is when the mention of in-line chalk came up. The two friends were very thankful for this gift as they could use it during their break and win quite a few more balls than usual. To me, this is one of the best gifts a pool player can receive – an in-line chalk holder that doesn’t need batteries! See in store.
Chalk holders are a very helpful tool for those who are trying to improve their game. It allows you to have chalk without keeping it in your pocket (and potentially losing it). You can set it up in key locations in the room when you need them and then use stuff like this to take it with you. For whatever reason, people tend to play much better as they begin their match with a full bucket of chalk (having 3 or 4 chalks allowed sets them apart from their opponents). This small gift is also good to help them relax as they know that their hands will be free and clear of chalk. See in store.
Custom pool balls
This is the gift that the Pool Player’s Husband (or wife) has been dreaming of all year. A custom pool ball is another way to make your friends smile while playing and not have to worry about breaking balls if they lose one. The best part of this purchase is the range of customization you can have. You can have anything written on the ball in pretty much any language, and you are in control of the color. It’s like you’re signed to a pool ball company, just like your favorite player! See in store.
Neon man cave sign
This was one of the first things I ever bought for my husband. As a small, fun gift, it makes a huge statement in our house – it’s absolutely perfect. It came just in time, too as we were starting to get the house decorated for his birthday (and mine). When we saw the picture online, I knew it was something he would love and that we would enjoy having around. If you want to make sure your gift is something they will enjoy, I recommend considering their style. See in store.
This is a perfect addition to the man cave sign. You can put a basketball on the wall and be in business. However, what makes this stand out is the fact that it hangs over the pool table so that everyone can be reminded when you have games at your house (or when there are guests). You can also have pool-related sayings, but I think it’s pretty self-explanatory. See in store.
Pool players are usually found with their friends and family around the holiday season, which is why this is a perfect gift for your friend or family member (and one of my favorite ones on the list). It’s great to put a game table in the game room where everyone can kick back and play pool if you don’t want to play in front of the TV. You can have some great times with your family and friends, and no one has to worry about anyone else trying to “help you” (or steal a shot from you in the middle of a match). See in store.
Billiards phone case
This is one of the coolest phone cases I have seen so far. I love the simplicity of it and how it fits his personality, as it shows what he loves to do in life. That being said, if you’re trying to buy a gift for a pool player in your life, it would probably help if the person had a phone case or phone. See in store.
This is another perfect gift for the pool player in your life. This particular shirt has a large enough image that it doesn’t need to be custom-made like so many that are out there. It’s a great way to get a couple of laughs and have a special shirt for those pool tournaments you go to over the holidays with everyone. If you still don’t think this is something they want, check out this funny shirt with other pool-related sayings. See in store.
This is a great gift for someone who has a pool table in their home and wants to show it off. This set would be perfect if you are helping them with the hookups or if they do not already have a manufactured one. It comes with everything you need to get started, so it’s pretty self-explanatory as to what’s included. See in store.
