Poker Gift Idea: Card Player Magazine

card_player_magazine.jpgI've been pondering what to get my poker-playing friends for Christmas this year, so I sat back and asked myself - what would I want? I would want a resource that kept me excited about poker, helped me out with strategy, and generally just kept me up on what's going on in the world of poker. The answer? Card Player magazine.

Card Player is the premier poker magazine. It is distributed to most of the poker rooms across the country, championship poker tournament events, and charity poker events. Every issue provides expert strategy and analysis, and addresses important issues within the poker industry.

Can't really go wrong with that - it's the gift that keeps on giving, a subscription's dirt cheap, and that subscription card will fit nicely in a stocking.

Poker T-Shirt Club

club_shirt.jpgThe first rule of Poker T-Shirt Club is you don't talk about Poker T-Shirt Club...well, we're breaking that rule to tell you about the sweet shirts you can get. We rummaged through the site and found some doozies - you probably know a lady who needs a Big Pair shirt, or maybe a Justin Timberlake fan who would kill for the Cry Me a River one. I liked the I Club Donkeys shirt (pictured above), and you'll be able to find all four suits on the site.
