Last Minute Gift Ideas Edition (12/17/12)

Howdy PoolDawgians!

It's here.  The last Monday before Christmas.  Why is that significant?  Because today (by 1PM MST) is the last time folks in the Northeast can order with ground shipping and still get it in time for the holidays (the rest of the East Coast will have until Tuesday, Midwest and West Coast are Thursday, etc.  Check the shipping schedule for your specific shipping deadlines).

This also means that this will be the last "get it in time for the holidays" email that you'll get from us in 2012.  With that in mind, we've put together a short list of gift ideas perfect for any pool player.  

After you're done checking out these last minute gift ideas, be sure to read our latest article from Jennifer Barretta.  This week, Jen talks about everyone's least favorite shot - the dreaded jump shot.  And away we go!

PoolDawg Player's Bundle

We've been selling this for a while now, but it continues to be one of our most popular bundles during the holiday season.  Not only does it have everything a new pool player needs to get into the game (cue, case, tip tool, chalk and shaft cleaner), but we also sell it at a crazy low price.  That and everything you get has a supercool PoolDawg logo

Scorpion GRP06 Cue and Case Bundle

If you like the feel of a sport grip, the Scorpion bundle is going to make you very, very happy.  This set features a Scorpion cue with a matching case as well as a glove, patch and coin holder.  If pink isn't your thing, we also have Scorpion bundles in Blue and Black.

Eight Ball Mafia EBM06 Bundle

There's no reason to beat around the bush on this one.  Eight Ball Mafia line is seriously hot.  It's like they took that "Sons of Anarchy" show and infused it directly into a line of pool cues.  If you like skulls and biker themes, this is the bundle for you.  It includes a cue, a case, a towel, a shooting glove, a coin holder and a patch. 

PoolDawg Gift Certificates - Starting at 10 Bucks

Still stumped for a gift?  Make it easy on yourself.  Instead of trying to guess what that favorite pool player of yours wants, just pick up a gift certificate.  Available in denominations of $10 to $250, these certificates work just like cash at PoolDawg and can be used to purchase anything we sell.

In addition to making gift giving insanely simple, these certificates also have an instant delivery feature so if you're a procrastinator, you can wait until Christmas Eve and still get your gift delivered on time.

Jennifer Barretta - Failure To Launch?

There is no shot more loved by fans and loathed by players than the jump shot. It used to be that the best players had to have a solid education in kicking their way out of safeties. These days everyone just busts out a jump cue to get out of trouble.

When I was learning the game from my mentor, he took me to play three cushion billiards every week for almost a year to teach me all of the subtleties in the art of kicking. It was a torturous year, but it gave me a distinct advantage over the players who could not kick a ball.

Not long after, almost everyone had a jump cue in their case. At first I resisted the trend because of my kicking knowledge, but in the end, sometimes it's just the right shot...keep reading
