Alright, Christmas is coming up and although it may seem like it’s still far away now, you’ll most likely end up with less than a day to find a gift for your workplace Secret Santa raffle. So, to prepare you for that moment, here are 5 reasons why board games make the best gifts.


5. They vary in price, but not necessarily in quality!

While yes, the gifts are not for you, the price tag on them is, and sometimes you are limited by a budget. One could say the same thing for clothes, fancy dinners or about anything else, but there’s a big difference: quality. The difference between a 50 RON board game and a 250 RON boardgame is not necessarily quality, but rather size. If you’re running low on cash, buying someone a small board game is a great way to show you put in some interest. For perspective, take a look at Hanamikoji, an amazing game for under 50 RON!


4. They are LITERALLY for everyone
