Dungeons & Dragons gifts
A set of polyhedral dice is an essential for any D&D player, you can’t really play the RPG without them - unless you use a digital dice roller, but that’s no fun at all. Whether the person receiving your gift is currently a Dungeons & Dragons lover or if they’re on their way to being one, giving them a new set of polyhedral dice is a no-brainer.
This particular set of dice is positively adorable, made with clear plastic and each containing a tiny little rubber duck inside. Not only is this marvelously a practical gift, it’s also a good looking one and is sure to charm anyone sitting at the table. Another plus to these cute little dice is you can use them to play in the bath, if you so choose, you also get a free dice bag!
Keep your feats warm
Socks are the quintessential Christmas gift and while they are practical, they aren’t necessarily very fun. Say no to boring tootsie-warmers and yes to socks that will warm your DM’s feet while also helping them pacify rowdy players. All they have to do is lean back in their chair, put their feet up and refer argumentative types to their socks.

Turn a dungeon crawl into a pub crawl
Delving into dungeons and/or dragons is thirsty work, and whichever side of the screen you sit, it’s important to stay hydrated. It’s also good to have a drink on hand to toast your successes, or, if necessary, aid in drowning your sorrows. Whatever their beverage preferences and requirements, help the D&D player in your life remain refreshed and on brand with this selection of pint glasses featuring familiar faces from the fifth edition core rulebook covers. Available as singles or a money-saving bundle of all three, they’re sure to go down well.

D&D character sheets
While there is a staggering array of digital tools to keep track of characters these days, there’s a lot to be said for the humble paper character sheet. Going low tech is always a valid option and there’s something very pleasant about having a physical record of your progress. They’re called pen ‘n’ paper games for a reason! Having a stack of character sheets ready to go is really handy, especially if you don’t have access to cheap photocopying or printing through school or work. At the same time, buying character sheets can seem like a bit of an extravagance, which is why they make a perfect stocking stuffer, especially for someone who can’t stop making new characters.

Cosy & D
Comfort your fellow players or warm your DM’s cold, cruel heart with this cosy blanket. Big enough to get wrapped and snuggly in, small enough to cart to a session without any fuss, the polyhedral dice design is stylish enough to roll in anywhere. 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.
