This ultimate pool player gift guide includes 35 gifts for pool players of all skill levels and playing styles.
Every pool room deserves to be well-organized. Organizational items also add room style.

For the Table
Pool tables need love, too. Here are some gift ideas to help keep the pool table looking great.

A sturdy cover can keep a pool table safe from dust between plays.

Ping Pong Table Top for Pool Table
Billiards isn’t the only game in town.

If your friend’s pool table looks rough, make it look new again with new felt.

Pool Table Cloth Cleaning Tool
Keeping a pool table looking nice has never been easier.
Iwan Simonis’ pool-cleaning tool works with static electricity and capillary action. Remove chalk dust by gliding the tool across the pool table. The easy-grip cork handle makes cleaning effortless.
Cue Silk Pool Table Cleaner with Microfiber Cloth
Some players are rougher on their pool table than just marking it up with chalk.
Cue Silk is an effective no-bleach, no-phosphate cleaner for tough stains on any pool table. A microfiber cloth combined with the one-swipe formula saves time and keeps the table looking nice longer.
When a player has the perfect shot in mind, a bridge can keep it steady.
Retractable Pool Bridge
This pool bridge can retract down to 13 inches to assist with either short or long shots.
It’s small enough to fit into your pocket. It also has a detachable head and fits easily into any large cue case. IGOTCHA crafts their pool bridge handles from maple wood.
Moosehead Slip-On Bridge Head
A slip-on bridge converts any cue stick into a bridge.
A rubber grommet keeps the cue stick unharmed. Because it is only a bridgehead, it is highly portable. The moose-head design features nine different grooves to help a player get the perfect angle for tricky shots.
Chalk is a necessary part of any pool game. It provides friction to keep the cue stick from sliding off the ball.
Chalk with Octagon Chalk Holder
Predator makes octagon-shaped chalk that helps improve a player’s accuracy, consistency, and ball spin.
Predator formulates their chalk to cover the cue tip better and stays on it longer. This set comes with 5 pieces of chalk and an octagon-shaped holder.
Cue sticks are a vital part of a pool player’s game. Here are some gifts to make that part of the experience even better.
3-in-1 Pool Cue Tip Tool
A pool cue tip matters. That’s why any pool player will appreciate an accessory that gives their cue an advantage.
The shaper contours the tip to the correct shape, the tapper roughens the surface to hold chalk better, and the aerator breaks the surface to hold more chalk.
Maple Cue with Daggers and Diamonds
Any pool lover would be thrilled with bird-eye-patterned maple wood cues.
The tip contains ten layers of laminated leather, the shaft has Low Deflection Technology, and an implex joint collar gives players a firm hit. Wrapless handles provide a sleek feel. 18.5 oz to 20 oz sizes available.
