In the spirit of the season, we thought it might be nice to offer up a few gift ideas for that special gamer in your life. (Note: We’re not affiliated with these products in any way. We just think they’re cool.)

  • Dice — No gamer has ever said, “No thanks. I’ve got enough.” Especially not if they’re made out of freakin’ mammoth ivory.
  • Dice Bags — The scale mail ones are particularly cool, and can be found all over Etsy.
  • Miniatures — There are a lot of options out there, but the custom minis at Hero Forge are pretty dang slick.
  • Storage — If you’ve got minis, you’ve got storage problems. These Chessex figure storage boxes are particularly useful for transportation.
  • Special FX — A subscription to Syrinscape gives your GM access to a ton of audio ambiance. There are also less conventional mood-setting options out there.
  • Geek Chic — Click at your own risk. We’ve coveted their high-end game room tables for years now.
  • Get Out of Jail Free Card — For GMs on a budget, design and print your own. Give one each to your players, then allow them to cash it in to escape certain in-game doom.
  • Battlemats — Again with the Chessex, these mats hold up well and have served our gaming table faithfully for years.
  • Dice Towers — We made our own from Hirst Arts blocks, but there are some unique options out there.
  • Custom Art — If you’ve never commissioned an artist to draw your character, we suggest you give it a try. Check out our Portraiture comic for details.
