If you're going to play bridge, you need bridge score pads (or scorepads - I'm never sure which). These used to be found in every stationery store across America, but no longer. They are, though, still available.
Since one also needs two decks of bridge-size playing cards to play bridge, the most convenient solution I've found is to purchase bridge gift sets, sometimes called bridge ensembles.
Most of the sets are made by Piatnik of Austria (my favorite), but I've also seen a set from KEM, in which the playing cards are all-plastic (very durable, more expensive), and Congress, which I believe are now manufactured in Spain.
So, there's my solution. Most of the sets used to sell for around $14, now they are more likely to be priced around $35, but that's still really not bad when you consider what you're getting. On the other hand, bridge pads are now more available on the internet than they used to be.
One last word - bridge gift sets, as the name implies, make great gifts! If you're looking for a perfect gift for someone who plays bridge, this is it.
