D&D 5E Character journal
Any Dungeons & Dragons player worth their salt should have their own D&D journal. Having a journal for your games of the tabletop RPG enables players somewhere to note down important information about the various quests their characters embark upon, helping them to keep track of everything and do the best roleplaying possible. Journals can also be used to write or draw helpful notes about potential puzzles that players might encounter in their journeys, providing an essential reference for solving any brainteasers blocking their way.
This particular D&D 5E Character Journal features pages that are perfect for making important notes, as well as noting down aspects about a player’s character – such as their stats, spells and current status – providing a great way for players to alter their character without touching their character sheet. The front cover also features a beautiful and very Dungeons & Dragons-appropriate illustration, with a range of colours available to choose from. Help make your D&D friends and family’s lives easier with this snazzy D&D 5E Character Journal.

D&D session notepad
Keep adventures on track
The best Dungeons & Dragons players are the ones who take notes during a session. This present will help them do just that.

This notepad is ideal for keeping track of important events, characters and locations from your latest D&D adventure, with separate sections to write in for each. There’s even a section to put notes in for your next session to remind you of important things to do or people to see.
Pretty and practical, this D&D notepad is an excellent gift choice for those who regularly play Dungeons & Dragons.

Comfort your fellow players or warm your DM’s cold, cruel heart with this cosy blanket.

Made of anti-pilling flannel and machine washable, it’s sure to last and easy to clean. Be warned though, this blanket may give cold resistance and +1 AC, but it also gives disadvantage on saves versus naps.

For getting out of slippery situations
Besides the bath bombs from Geeky Clean, polyhedral dice have also made their way into other bath-related products - including this collection of scented soaps.

You can get these brightly coloured dice in varying different shades, as well as select from a vast number of scented soaps for them to be suspended within, like a wonderful-smelling skeleton in a gelatinous cube.
Spice up anyone’s cleaning routine with one of these lovely dice-filled soaps.

Beware of the Smiling Dungeon Master Classic T-Shirt
Whilst the world of Dungeons & Dragons has its fair share of terrifying monsters – from the intelligent Beholder to the brain-sucking Mind Flayers – ask any D&D players what the scariest sight in the game is and they’ll likely reply with: their dungeon master’s smile. It is a known fact that a smiling DM usually means that they have some kind of devious trap up their sleeve that they’re just dying to spring onto their unwitting players.
This stylish T-Shirt is a perfect reminder for your D&D-playing loved ones of that frightful sight and an indicator to their fellow players that they share their pain. The design itself is simple but gorgeous, featuring an ancient-looking tome, a collection of dice and the scroll depicting the words “Beware of the Smiling DM.” Amuse and slightly unnerve your gift recipients with this neat-looking T-shirt, which comes in multiple different colour options.

Time out chair for bad dice
Discourage bad rolling
Rolling a bad result for an important skill check or saving throw in Dungeons & Dragons never feels good.
It’s a semi-tradition amongst tabletop RPG players to swap out dice whenever they’re getting bad rolls from a particular set. This little model of a chair is the perfect place for any player or DM to put a die that has been giving them especially poor rolls. Complete with a dunce hat to place atop the badly behaved die, this little time out chair is cute and, hopefully, effective at persuading dice to roll better.
Any D&D player will appreciate the great in-joke, and may even find a use for it during their games.

This one is specifically for the dungeon masters in your life. Having a regular DM is a wonderful thing in that you have someone whose Dungeon Mastering style you’re familiar with, as well as undoubtedly being a person you enjoy seeing and spending time with. However, as much as the DM can be a fantastic storyteller and individual to hang out with, there’s always something sinister about putting the lives of your characters in the hands of someone else.
This mug represents that dark side of your DM or of a DM that you know. Sporting the phrase “The Tears of my Players”, the mug depicts a D20 with a thick tear either side, serving as a reminder to the players that their very DM is as much of a threat to them as the various monsters they may face. Simple but stylish, this mug can provide the perfect receptacle for holding a hot drink of the DM’s choice or even whatever dice they might need to keep to hand during their games. Indulge in your DM’s darker side with this morbid mug.
