Christmas is coming! And if your lovers (husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend), or your family member (your kids, your parents, etc) are table tennis players, then you are at the right place! Here are the best gift ideas that you can offer for this Noel and X-mas.
So now, I will assume that you want to choose a good Christmas gift for your husband (who is the ping pong addict).
Don’t offer table tennis equipment
Because if you offer him the average gift, he won’t appreciate much. If you really want to offer him table tennis equipment (like a racket, a rubber, training balls), you should ask him first. That if these gifts will fit his playing style. But you don’t want to do that right? You want it should be a surprise!
As the same reason, here is the list that you should not buy as an X-mas gift:
- Don’t buy him his favorite rubber. Maybe he is on the plan to change his rubber.
- Don’t offer him a box of table tennis training ball
- Never offer him a premade racket (so so bad for a serious table tennis player)
- Don’t buy him a robot. Buying a table tennis robot is important. Only buy if you know his preference.
- Don’t buy a table tennis blade. Ask him first! Here is the list of top 10 blade that professional players use.
1. A good book is a safe choice
So the best way to help him improving is buying a good book for table tennis. It gives him a lot of chance to improve. And when he improves, he will thank you so much for such a great gift.
There are many good table tennis books out there. You can choose a book about tactics, techniques, skills, etc. But you should choose a good book to improve his tactics and strategy. Because it’s better to learn techniques by watching coaching videos. But tactics and strategy, you need to think! you need to read!
