Enhance their Mahjong playing experience this Christmas with these fantastic and useful gifts for Mahjong players.
My Top Gift Choice For Mahjong Players
Mahjong is a great game that not only helps people to develop their cognitive skills and abilities, but can also help them to relax too.
And it's a fun game to play with friends, as you pit your wits against each other while finding the matches among the traditional Chinese symbols and numbers.
Which is why it's no surprise that Mahjong has migrated from it's origins in China to also become a popular game to play in the United States.
So if you know an avid Mahjong fan, getting them a gift that helps to enhance their gaming experience is always a good idea.
With the following list of gift ideas for Mahjong players that I've put together being full of things that they'd love to receive this holiday season.
1. An American Mahjong Set They'd Adore
There are two main forms of Mahjong that are most commonly played, which are the traditional Chinese version and the more modern American version of the game, with the American version now being the most popular choice in the States.
So if you are planning to buy a new Mahjong set for a loved one, this is probably going to be the best choice.
And if you want a set that screams quality, then check out the Yellow Mountain Imports American Mahjong set.
As this one comes with top class tiles backed with a gold pattern, wooden racks with brass ends, and everything else they need to play American Mahjong.
And it all comes in a classy wood veneer case with red velvet lining, making it ideal for giving as a gift.
2. A Chinese Mahjong Set For A Different Style
If your loved one prefers playing the Chinese version of the game, then obviously a Chinese Mahjong set will make much more sense as a gift.
And for this I'd recommend the Yellow Mountain Imports Chinese Mahjong set above.
As this traditional set also contains high quality tiles but with a green patterned backing instead, along with dice and the wind indicator tile.
And the vinyl carry case it comes in looks really cool too, with it's gold Chinese symbol printed on the front.
3. A Travel Mahjong Set For Games On The Go
Being able to play an impromptu game of Mahjong whenever you fancy it is a wonderful thing for a keen Mahjong player.
So how about getting them the Marion's travel Mahjong set as a gift this year?
As this travel Mahjong set contains all the tiles they need for a game of American Mahjong in a smaller form plus smaller plastic racks, all packed away in a black zipper carry case.
So it's easy to transport and ideal for keeping on hand for whenever the urge for a game strikes.
4. A Mahjong Mat To Play On
While you can play Mahjong on any flat table or surface, playing on a Mahjong mat is so much better.
As these mats not only look great, they also protect your table from scuff marks, and provide a more solid base for you to play the tiles on.
So they are a great idea for a Mahjong gift, with the Yellow Mountain Imports Mahjong mat being a top choice.
5. A Games Table To Make Things More Comfortable
Having a dedicated games table to play Mahjong on can make a real difference to your games, which makes them a welcome gift idea for any Mahjong player.
With a great one being the Flash Furniture games table above, as this has a lovely green felt surface that makes for a great base for the Mahjong tiles.
And it folds away easily too, meaning they can store it in between games without taking up too much space.
6. A Top Class Automatic Mahjong Table
If you really want to push the boat out and spoil your favourite Mahjong player, then getting them an automatic Mahjong table will definitely do the trick.
And for one of the best on the market, check out the USA MJ automatic Mahjong table.
As this will give them a table to play on that will wow their friends, with it's ability to roll the dice and shuffle and deal the tiles at a press of a button.
So they'll enjoy faster and easier games with less stoppages in between.
And this table looks fantastic too, with it's green felt playing surface and stylish pedestal stand, making it a real centerpiece in a games room or when brought out especially for a games night.
7. A New Set Of Extended Wooden Racks For The Tiles
If you don't want to go the whole hog and get them an entire Mahjong set, then how about gifting them a new set of wooden Mahjong racks instead?
As good quality racks will always be appreciated by an avid Mahjong player, and a top set to go for are the Yellow Mountain Imports wooden Mahjong racks.
As these are made from solid wood and are extended length racks, giving them more space to build their hands on.
8. A Book To Help Them Learn More About The Game
There are plenty of good books on Mahjong that will work well as gifts, whether that is for beginners or more experienced players.
However, a book I think makes for a really nice gift for every Mahjong player is 'The Great Mahjong Book'.
As this one combines game tips and strategies for players at all levels, alongside entertaining information on the history of the game.
9. A Mahjong Jigsaw Puzzle For Some Variation
Our final two gift ideas for Mahjong players on this list are to get them some Mahjong inspired puzzles for some variation and a different challenge.
With the first one being the Mahjong Masters jigsaw puzzle, which is a colourful 1000 piece puzzle that will remind them of their Mahjong games with every piece.
So it's an ideal gift for a Mahjong player that also enjoys doing jigsaws.
10. A Mahjong Inspired Rubiks Cube
If your favourite Mahjong player isn't a big fan of jigsaw puzzles, then you could get them a Mahjong magic cube instead.
As this is essentially a Rubiks cube that features Mahjong tiles rather than colours.
So it makes for an ideal stocking stuffer for the Mahjong player that already has everything else!
Mahjong is a great game for keeping your brain sharp and for helping you to relax and unwind.
So if you have a loved one who enjoys playing it, getting them a gift to improve their Mahjong gaming experience is a great idea.
And I hope you've managed to find something suitable here among our list of gift ideas for Mahjong players.
