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.

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!
