BigNews.Biz – Nov 30,2010 – With the holiday shopping season upon us, PacificChess.com has created a gift guide to help those new to the chess world or those who do not play choose a gift for their favorite chess aficionados.

There are such a large variety of chess sets and accessories available that even an experienced player may find the selection confusing. PacificChess.com specializes in chess sets and accessories categorized as meeting United States Chess Federation (USCF) standards. In addition, they categorize by materials, themes, colors, travel and whether or not a chess set is electronic.

The top ten chess gift suggestions provided by PacificChess.com for the holiday gift season are based on the type of recipient or their skill level:

Children – electronic sets, themed sets
Women – Renaissance and Roman
Men – Staunton, Staunton Themed styles
Friend – small set, if friend is a beginner, functional set if an enthusiast
Relative – a collectible chess set they don’t already have
Family – travel, magnetic, practical
Donation – buy quantities for non-profits such as foster homes, homeless shelters or schools
Enthusiasts – top-of-the-line United States Chess Federation (USCF) standard set
Beginner – low-cost, durable USCF standard set
Coworker or boss – a book about the history of chess or an inexpensive portable set

Chess set pricing is typically between $25.00 on the low end to $500.00 or more for an elaborate or handmade custom set. Good sets are available at all price levels. Recipients will especially cherish the gift of a chess set combined with a popular book on the topic. Other treasured combinations may include a traditional chess set along with a travel set and a book or two on the topic.

Gary Johnson says “The PacificChess website was over a year in development and is designed to be easy find, easy view, easy buy.” He remembers how much fun it was playing chess on his front porch as a kid many afternoons on hot summer days and was inspired to create PacificChess for people of all ages.

Gary Johnson founded PacificChess.com in 2009 to add value and offer products to the chess community and those who want to learn the game of chess. Products and books are offered in a variety of themes, prices and materials. For more information visit http://www.PacificChess.com.
