When my husband was growing up he had a Ping-Pong table set up in his garage. They didn’t have space for a games room, but they set up the table out there, hung a dart board, and whenever he had friends over he took over the garage and had a blast playing games until the wee hours.
Having one or two games in a games room is great, but it’s the extras that convert a spot where you play darts or Ping-Pong into the perfect hang out for the guys or the entire family, and these games room extras make the perfect gifts to put under the tree. With the holidays right around the corner, here are some great gifts for games rooms.
Give the gift of a portable bar
Depending on where your games room is set up, you might not have extra table space to set up a bar area. A bar table is a great gift because they’ll hold all of the bits and pieces you need to mix up cocktails for friends. Add a few bar stools and you’ll be at the top of the list of friends and family who get invited over.
Add some snacks to the games room
Popcorn goes so well with so many different activities. From movie night to a good old-fashioned game of foosball, a retro style popcorn maker is the perfect games room accessory and a great gift. All that popcorn will make them thirsty, so why not gift them with a Margaritaville Frozen Drink Maker? It will make all types of frozen cocktails for the adults, and it makes creating slush for the kids easy.
Great gaming accessories make playing even more fun
They might have already have dartboard, but why not give the gift of a dart kit so they can play in bigger groups? Dart flights and a dart sharpener make great stocking stuffers for an avid player too. If they love Ping-Pong, give them a set of new paddles, or choose to gift them with an opponent – the iPong Table Tennis Training Robot will let them sharpen their skills by playing opposite the robot.
Cozy up the games room with seating
Benches are a great gift for games rooms, especially when they need a place to store all of their game gear. Choose a bench with built in storage like the JR Home Collection Transitional Storage Bench or something extra comfortable with the Monarch Leather Look Bench.
Add some personality to your games room
Maybe the person you are buying for this holiday is a sports fan. In that case, you can pick up a few cool pieces of sports memorabilia for their walls like a NHL Neon Logo Clock or a Rink Mirror. You could even choose a cuddly NHL throw blanket if the person you are buying for likes to have a cozy blanket on the couch of their game room.
Break out the board games
What would a games room be without a few board games? Family game nights in the games room are something everyone enjoys, so give the gift of board games like Clue, Monopoly, and Risk.
It’s easy to pick out gifts, even if they are for people who are hard to buy for, when you pick up something for the games room. Take a look at everything available for the games room on Bestbuy.ca.
