Magic: The Gathering Gift IdeasNovember 27, 2018
For Magic players, the upcoming holidays can be a great time to expand your Magic collection, get some booster packs to crack open, or have the chance to try out something new in the expanding Magic multiverse. I wanted to create a gift guide for family members and friends looking to buy something for the special Magic player in their life. If you are a Magic player, you can use this list to help guide your family to the presents you will appreciate the most. You can find all of these products at your local game store.
Best Gift for a Beginner Planeswalker! – The Magic Gift Pack 2018 – Price: $19.99
If you know somebody (or are somebody) who has recently started playing this awesome game, this Gift Box is perfect for you. It contains 4 booster packs of the most recent core Magic set, a spin down die that is great at keeping track of life in a casual setting, and some exciting exclusive cards.
Are you looking for a gift for a long time Magic player in your life? Here are some other recommendations that might be more exciting to someone who has been playing for years.
The most recent Magic set released is Guilds of Ravnica. Ravnica is a fan favorite location in the multiverse and I completely understand why. The plane is made up of 10 Guilds, each with its own flavor, value system, and play style. As a Magic player, people love to define themselves by what guild they align with. Think of this like Hogwarts houses with an added identity of your favorite colors to play. I love my guild, the Simic Combine, so much so that I have a tattoo on my shoulder of the green and blue symbol representing my dedication.
Here are a couple of recently released gift ideas that tie into the amazing setting of Ravnica.
Perfect for any Magic Player – Guilds of Ravnica Bundle – Price: $39.99
The Bundle is the safest purchase, as this contains 10 booster packs, 80 land cards, and one spindown die. All of these items are useful for Magic players of all skill levels and everyone loves opening booster packs, whether it’s just to try to find a good rare card or because they want to play in a draft. This gift will be sure to bring smiles!
Stocking Stuffer Idea – Booster Packs – Price: $3.99 each
If you want to throw a few booster packs into a stocking, this will be an awesome treat for any Magic player. Any game store will have these ready for you.
Guildmasters’ Guide to Ravnica – Perfect for Magic and D&D players – Price: $49.95
If you or a loved one is a fan of Magic AND Dungeons & Dragons, the new D&D Adventure entitled Guildmasters’ Guide to Ravnica (just released this week!) combines these two amazing worlds for the first time ever! Players can build a character based on their guild of choice. Fans are thrilled to finally have the opportunity to combine their love of these two games and I cannot imagine a better way for the worlds to collide.
Magic Gift Idea for Board Gamers – Magic Game Night – Price: $39.99
If you are a board gamer or know someone who is, this is a fantastic introductory product into the world of Magic for board gamers and a way to combine the two hobbies. This is a great product to have sitting along your other board games. If a group of friends get together for a board game night and want to try out Magic for the first time, or feel like playing a little bit of Magic before jumping into some other games for the night, this is perfect. Made for a multiplayer experience of 2-5 players, this is a great way to mix Magic skill levels from never played before to people who’ve been playing for 25 years.
I hope this guide is a helpful way to spoil gamers for the holidays!
