Exquisite Miniatures for Unforgettable Encounters
In the world of D&D, miniatures add a whole new dimension to the gameplay experience. Whether it’s battling fearsome dragons or exploring mysterious dungeons, having finely detailed miniatures can truly bring your adventures to life. The amount and range of high-quality miniatures are staggering, but there are so many options and ways of getting them.
- If you want something that is prepainted and ready to go, you cannot go wrong with the “Icons of the realm” official DnD miniatures.
- If you want to buy something that is tailor made for a specific character, Hero Forge is a great way of doing a custom miniature.
- Check your local game store for what they have to offer
- There are a ton of third party options out there. For big bulk of enemies, check out Wildspire Fantasy Miniatures.
3D Printer for printing miniatures or terrain (especially for the Dungeon Master)
Speaking of miniatures, the absolute best way of getting a ton of miniatures is via 3D printing. For printing miniatures, you could gift someone a resin 3D printer. While a bit expensive, you can get something awesome for about $200 these days. Check out our Best Resin 3D Printers for Miniatures article if you want to know what to get.
For a quick recommendation as a gift: you cannot go wrong with the Anycubic Mono 2. It is a cheap but excellent beginner 3D printer.
- Affordable value printer
- Easy to use for Beginner's
- Higher end specs unlikely to matter
- Corners have been cut on construction
- Build space is limited
If you think the person you are buying a DnD gift for is more into printing terrain for playing dungeons, an FDM printer is also a great gift (especially for dungeon masters). Again, I would go for something cheap like the Anycubic Kobra 2 or a big easy to use machine like the Bambu Lab P1P.

When we play dnd, we often go out of our way in making sure the visual and auditory senses are well stimulated. But there is one more sense that, when triggered, is very powerful in creating emotions. Scented Candles are another tool to invoke feelings in your tabletop game and there are some great options out there!
I have used the themed scented candles from The Wicked Warlock (as you can see in the image above). They make great dungeons and dragons gifts, as it is something that not a lot of people have. They can even be used for other board games.
Have you ever had strong feelings suddenly invoked by a similar smell? That is the power of scent. You can use that in your game to impose specific feelings at the table.
Dice Set (one of the best DnD gifts)
The person you are buying a gift for likely have a dice set. But, the amazing thing is that it does not matter at all! You cannot have too many dice with you for game night, and everyone loves cool dice sets (especially metal dice). Some people even have a dice set for each DnD character and theme it along with their character sheets.
Something happens after dnd players play Dice and Dragon games and become dice goblins. Whatever number of dice he or she has, he or she will always be looking for a bigger one! It seems as if thousands of fantastic dice sets are available. Metal dice, handmade, painted dice. This list continues! It is beautiful and comes in dice bags and makes a wonderful gift!
There are plenty of cheap options. Here amount is key, so getting more is fun.
But if you really like this person, get a beautiful set of metal dice.
Dice Bag for all those dice
All D&D gamers need a trusted dice pack. And there are soo many cool options out there. Some of them are very extravagant, but that is also why they make one of the best dnd gifts. It is likely that people will never buy this sort of stuff for themselves.
Published DnD Books and Supplements
These can be a bit hard to buy, because it is hard to know which book the person you are gifting has. But books are essential for tabletop roleplaying games, so they are a great gift. Here are some of my favorite official DnD books. If the person is the dungeon master, more books as dnd gifts are never a bad option.
You can get all types of DnD clothes. It can be either in the LARP style of being more “in game props” or in the style of merch. If you play dnd in a more “live” style, these can be a great addition (for dnd players or dungeon masters).
Props are an amazing tool to use as a dungeon master to whip out at the gaming table. I do not use them enough myself, but when I do it just works. Even if your loved one is not the dungeon master, they are great if they are a dungeons and dragons fan.
Portrait or Artwork for a Dungeons and Dragons character
Dungeons and Dragons is all about living and being your character. A character portrait make great DnD gifts, as they will be a very personal and treasured thing.
You can order a custom portrait via Etsy of Fiverr. You can also try your hand at making the artwork via AI in something like Midjourney.
DnD Dice Rolling Trays
Dice rolling trays make for excellent dnd gifts, especially for the dungeon master that rolls a lot of dice. This is one of those super popular Dungeons and Dragons gift ideas. They look good on the gaming table, but they also help avoiding all the dice falling to the floor. Dice trays are just great!
Framed DnD Maps
Printing and framing maps may make good DnD gifts for a number of reasons. This is not only a beautiful room decoration but also an ideal accessory for a game room or office. The party can track their travel plans, explore all the places around them and see how it will be unfolding before them.
This is one of those dnd gifts that are mostly great for the dungeon master and less relevant for your average dnd player. But hey, they will make for a stunning piece to have hanging at your gaming session.
Dice Tower for Dungeons and Dragons
Dice towers are one of those things: you either hate them or love them. But they have become a classic dnd gift. I have seen a dnd player go absolutely mental about them, refusing to roll without his “lucky dice charm”. They make for excellent dice storage and are just a fun gift all in all.
Dungeon Master screen
I am not a huge fan of DM Screens, but they do have their uses. I use them for some gaming session, but not all. I mainly feel like it creates a big boundary between me and my players, but they do make a great gift.
A Journal for Dungeons and Dragons
A great thing to have as a dungeons and dragons player is a journal or a book to keep notes. And why not make it something cool and in style? They make great dnd gifts and something most people would be happy to get.
