Gifts for Gamers

bitch
We're having a white elephant gift exchange in my D&D group ($20-30.) Any ideas for a unique gift any gamer would enjoy? All I'm comin' up with here is metal dice, a short sword off of ebay (thought it would be funny to get one of the decorative, wall-hanging ones) and The Planar Handbook, since my campaign is set in a planar setting and only one of my seven players owns this book...

Thought some fellow gamer collaboration might help here. I also bought a chainmail pouch for everyone and a pound of Chessex dice for them to sort through and pick from for Christmas. :-)

...um.

I say spring for the Planar Handbook.

Consider: Make a big cube of jello, sticking the die in them as it cools, and making them fight for the dice. Rar!

Gelatinous Cube!

Hahahaha. Now I have to make the gelatinous cube. I love that idea.

DITTO! I'm so making gelatinous cube jello-shots for my new year's party this year. Awesome idea.

Metal dice are evil, and not in an appealing way. They have a nasty habit of gouging the table they're rolled on. :(

The Planar Handbook is a good idea. Grabbing 3-5 minis (within your price range) covering the basic classes and a set of character sheets would be interesting too.

You could be a little unorthodox, and make an IOU of painting two minis, or supplying sodas for that person for the next few months (to a limit of 6-10 twelve-packs). If your players tend to be on the disorganized side of things, you could make a small gaming kit with a binder, paper (graph and standard ruled), pencils and erasers.

A $20 gift certificate to your FLGS may be a bit tacky, but it always fits. :)

I dread to suggest with all these painters about, but . . . buy them a couple booster packs of D&D minis?

Non-rpg tabletop games are usually good with gamers. Pit, Great Dalmuti, Fluxx, Munchkin, etc.
