Christmas Gift for a gambler

    I have to get a Christmas gift for an incorrigible gambler; he loves his horse-racing and his Celtic football.

    It's his main love, but I have very little knowledge of gambling; only bet on horses about once or twice a year.

    I was wondering if anyone has any ideas what to get him?

    I'd say all expenses trips in 2013 to Cheltenham, then Aintree, then Epsom, Royal Ascot, Galway and rounded off with the Breeders Cup.

    Might not be in your budget, but then you didn't specify.

    Failing that vouchers for his favorite bookie or an online Racing Post subscription.

    This is the most important part, me thinks. Also, are they one to "blow it all on one bet" or not?

    a voucher from any bookies and he will be happy

    depends on what type of gambler he is? is he the one to lump everything on one horse to go chasing his money
    or does he spread his money out doing small bets for abit of fun
