Help them on their quest to conquering the board this Christmas with a checkers gift that is fit for a king.
My Top Gift Choice For Checkers Players
A new checkers set will always be a top gift choice for a checkers player, and this one is a decent 'gift level' option if you don't want to go for the higher end boards.
Checkers is a great game to play with your friends and family, as it's easy to learn and accessible to people of all ages.
So it remains a popular choice during gatherings and get togethers, while there are also checkers clubs and social groups for people that like to play more regularly.
Which is great, as not only is checkers a game that improves your cognitive skills and memory, it also brings people together in a fun way.
So if you know someone who loves playing checkers, why not get them a little something to help improve their whole gaming experience.
As the following gift ideas for checkers players are all ones that they would really appreciate and enjoy using.
1. A Top Quality Handmade Checkers Set
Now you can play checkers just as good with pretty much any checkers set, but using a higher quality board and pieces just feels so much better.
So a gift idea for a loved one that plays checkers regularly is to get them a handmade wooden checkers set.
And while you have loads of choices when it comes to this, an example of a really top class one is the Chess Empire tournament series checkers set.
As this has a tournament sized board made from Canadian maple and ebony, as well as beautifully carved checkers pieces, and a maple wood storage box.
2. A More Informal Wooden Checkers Set
If you like the idea of getting them a new checkers set, but don't want to go as far as getting them a handmade one, then the WE Games solid wood checkers set is a decent option.
As this one has a well made and sturdy wooden board to play on, with recessed grooves in it to store the checkers pieces as they are captured, and between games.
While the checkers pieces themselves are designed in traditional red and black styles, with grooves that make them easy to stack.
3. A New Set Of Checkers Pieces
If your favourite checkers player already has a checkers board that they love to play on, then you could get them a new set of checkers pieces to use on it.
As you can never have enough of these in your checkers kit, and getting them a fresh set will be an upgrade on the ones they are currently using.
And a set that they are sure to be impressed by are the Radicaln black and white marble checkers above.
4. A Games Table To Play Checkers On
While you can play checkers on any flat surface or table, it's more fun on a dedicated games table.
So gifting a checkers player the Flash Furniture games table is a really nice idea.
As this has a felt surface that is made for playing games on, and folds away neatly between games without taking up too much space.
5. An Extra Special Checkers Table
If you want a gift that is really special for a checkers player, then you could get them an actual checkers games table to play on instead.
As these are pieces of furniture that have a checkers board built into the design of the tabletop, and look absolutely brilliant in someone's home or games room.
With a top option being the Acme Furniture Bishop II game table, which is a table they will be proud to play on when their friends come over.
6. A Checkers Countdown Timer
While most checkers games are played in a friendly and relaxed manner, some people like to play 'blitz checkers', where players are limited to 1-3 minutes to complete all their moves.
And for checkers players that play the game this way, a countdown games timer makes for a really useful gift.
With the Chess Armory digital countdown games timer being ideal, as it is made for two player games like chess and checkers.
7. A Travel Checkers Set For Games On The Move
While most games of checkers will be organised and played at homes or in cafes, sometimes it's also nice to have the option of playing a game on the move.
So getting a checkers player a travel checkers set that they can keep in their bag at all times is a really lovely gift idea.
And one that they'll be happy with is the Yellow Mountain Imports 3-in-1 travel checkers set, which is small enough to carry and has magnetic pieces that won't lose their place on the board.
Which is ideal, and this set has the added bonus of also being a travel chess and travel backgammon set too.
8. A Travel Checkers Set For The Kids
A travel checkers set is also a good gift idea for kids (and their parents!), as it can keep them occupied on car journeys and long trips.
So check out the Purple Cow magnetic travel checkers game, which has colourful pieces the kids will love, and magnetic grips to hold them in place.
9. An Oversized Checkers Set For The Kids Room
Another checkers gift that works really well for kids is to get them an oversized checkers set for their room.
As these are usually mats that double up as checkers boards, with huge checkers pieces that makes them feel more involved in the game and brings more fun into it.
With a good option being the SWOOC Games giant checkers set , which also reverses as a tic-tac-toe game too.
10. A Themed Checkers Set To Make It More Fun
Our final gift idea for kids who love to play checkers is to get them a themed checkers set.
As this will have all the play of a regular checkers set, but with much more colour, fun, and interest for them.
And an example of what you could go for is the Super Mario checkers set above, which is based on the popular video games series.
11. A Book On Checkers To Sharpen Their Skills
People that play checkers more regularly, especially those that play in clubs and tournaments, will forever be trying to improve their game.
So a gift that they would really appreciate is getting them a checkers strategy book, which will give them some tips and guidance on how to do just that.
With a popular one being Play Winning Checkers, which is written by a former American Checker Federation MA champion in Robert Pike.
12. A Piece Of Checkers History Wall Art
The final checkers gift idea on this list is to get a checkers fan a piece of wall art that they can hang up proudly in their home.
And one option that I like is the Checkers patent print, as not only does this look pretty cool, it's also interesting as it showcases the origin of the checkers game.
So you can give them a gift of some checkers history with this one.
Checkers is a fun and inclusive game that is enjoyed by the whole family, especially during the holiday season.
So if you know someone who truly loves a game of checkers, getting them a checkers related gift is a great idea.
With each of the gift ideas for checkers players that I've given you here being ones that will put a smile on their face.
