Unfortunately, buying magic for a magicianÂ can beÂ hard to do. It has been our goal here at Magic Geek to simplify the task and turn it into something fun. First off we have posted a video demo for just about every product we carry.Â That way,Â you can enjoy a short video and see exactly what the effect is.
To further simplify things we have put together this little list of categories and suggestions. We hope these help you in the search for the perfect gift...
Very Early Beginner:
We recommend you look in the Easiest section of the Magic Geek website. All of these effects can be performed with no sleight of hand experience. And it's not just kid's stuff, there are tricks like D'Lite and Dime and Penny that are easy, but fool and entertain adults as well.
Take a look at the Easy section. Classic effects that can be built upon are great ideas for the beginner with a growing interest in magic. Look into the Svengali Deck or the Scotch and Soda. What's better than getting a magic trick? Getting lots of magic tricks. That's why a Magic Set is always a great idea. We recommend the Legends of Magic Set or the Official Magician's Magic Show Set. We even have a wide selection of very classy, high quality magic in the Magic Collection #1, Magic Collection #2, and Executive Magic Collection #3 sets.
Been Doing Magic for a While:
Here's were those video demos come in really handy. For an individual trick, find something that you think looks really cool, that you haven't seen the gift recipient perform. A good place to look would be the Intermediate section. Another great idea at this stage is the Books or DVDs section. After a while most magicians get bored with self-working tricks and want to learn sleight of hand, so books and videos are a great buy. We recommend the Easy to Master Card Miracles series or Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic.
Â Â The Expert:
Here's where it gets tricky. You should ask if there is something they have been wanting. They will usually ask for a Book or a DVD. If they are a professional they will often ask for an individual trick only if it fits nicely into their routine. Our recommendations are Maximum EntertainmentÂ or The Art of Astonishment series. Another great idea is to take a look at theÂ Accessories section of the website. Magicians go through Decks, Ropes, and Silks like nobody's business so replacements are always welcome. Also a nice Close-UpÂ Pad or Shuffle Mat is a luxury most magicians would like butÂ often do not have.Â
Also feel free to contact us for recommendations via e-mail. We have a staff of professional magicians ready toÂ respond to your questions. Thanks for shopping at Magic Geek and have fun!
