gambling gift article

If you have several family members who enjoy gambling, you might want to consider buying them a special ornament that showcases their "fun time". Recently I found an interesting place online to buy these unique ornaments.  The company offers cutesy ones like the Card Shark that is a shark ornament dressed in flashy clothes and holding cards. It would be a great gift for the man who thinks he is a real "card shark". I just had to buy a few of the ladies in front of the slot machines. I have several friends who like to play the slots and they are going to love these ornaments. They are also going to love me since I am the one that found them. 

Ornaments of all sorts can be bought on this website but I decided that I might as well concentrate on the gambling ones and make a really unique tree. I even entered it in the Christmas tree house. No one had ever seen a gambling tree before. It was amazing and, not so amazingly, won first prize.

First of all, I chose a pink artificial tree because I knew it would make the ornaments even more flashy. I chose one with led lights embedded in the branches so that I would not have to worry with the twisted strings of lights. Then I added the ornmanets. I had several of the card shark ornaments and several different ethnic ladies playing the slots. I also had 3 hands of cards, 4 roulette wheels, a craps table, a few dice, and then interspersed it with solid colored ornament balls to balance it out. For a little added bling, I went to the toy store and purchased some play money and used ornament hangers to hang the bills all over the tree. What more could I ask for? Maybe just a pot of gold under the tree but, that is for Santa to add.
