Does your significant other loves D&D as much as you do? Then this gift guide is for you!

“February: the month of love..? No wonder the shortest one in the calendar.”

Get ready to put the roses, chocolates, and teddy bears away, and take out your character sheets and tons of dice ’cause this Valentine’s Day we play D&D!

Here are my Top 5 Dungeons & Dragons Gifts for Valentine’s Day!

This list will start in descending order from what I consider the most basic items any D&D Player or DM MUST have and go to the most “creative” or innovative/specific items.

5.- Xanathar’s Guide to Everything

Xanathar

This is the latest release by D&D and let me tell you… it’s FRIGGIN’ AWESOME!

The FIRST MAJOR D&D EXPANSION has ARRIVED!

This book comes with many, many, MAAAAAAAAAANY stuff to spice up your DM Skills/Powers.

New charts, subclasses, spells, rules, magic items, etc. You name it. Xanathar’s got it.

This gift is cool for Players to have (as it expands their character options) and is BRUTAL for DMs to have (80% of the content of the book is super useful to DMs).

4.- Miniatures

Well, on this subject there are many companies that produce and sell different styles of minis: painted, unpainted, plastic, metal, 3D printed, paper, etc.

If you’d like to get more information about miniatures and where to buy them online, check out my article called “10 Dungeons & Dragons Gifts Under $40 for Christmas 2017”

But if you’re looking for other alternatives or a way to get TONS OF MINIS and not break the bank, check out Arcknight’s miniatures.

Arcknight FPM1

Arcknight is a company that offers affordable, beautiful, high-quality plastic products. They have a secret method to print images on plastic and cut them to get, as a result, perfect details on all of their products.

They sell a product called Flat Plastic Miniatures (FPM) which is an upgraded version of the Pathfinder’s Pawns. You get a lot of miniatures with a really high detail and affordable price!

They even designed a Starter Set especially for dungeon masters, curated by SlyFlourish!

3.- Tomb of Annihilation Board Game

If you’re into D&D, you must have heard about the latest D&D Adventure Module called “Tomb of Annihilation” (ToA).

ToA is a solid hit from the D&D team that features an incredible adventure that takes place on the Chult continent (jungle terrain), I don’t want to spoil anything so let’s talk about the Board Game.

Tomb Of Annihilation Board Game Contents

ToA Board Game is a cooperative game (perfect to play with your soulmate) for 2 to 5 players and has a 50-60 minute playing time, with lots of replayability value, since there are many different quests to complete (or die trying).

It features multiple scenarios that are generated randomly so you never run out of ideas. The quests are challenging and REALLY hard.

Contents:

  • 42 Single color miniatures
  • One 20-sided die
  • 40 Interlocking Dungeon tiles
  • 225 Cards
  • Over 300 tokens
  • And more!

If you don’t want to paint miniatures, there’s also a “Premium” version that comes with painted miniatures!

Tomb Of Annihilation Painted Unpainted Miniatures

These board games are often used as a “cheap” source of official miniatures, because you’re paying like $1.4 per miniature + TONS of other contents.

This board game can be combined with any of the other D&D Board Games like:

2.- Spell Effect Templates

If your loved one plays a caster, please make his/her life easier with these tokens.

1.- PolyHero Dice

PolyHero is a company created in 2015 that focuses on making dice with unique and innovative shapes.

PolyHero Warrior Dice Set

They started a Kickstarter campaign for their first dice set: “Warrior Set”, where they raised over $90k.

PolyHero Wizard Dice Set

Then they started a second campaign: “Wizard Set”, where they raised over $575k.

Their products are the perfect gift and I’m sure they will shine at your table! They are a memorable gift that everyone will be very happy to receive and use on every D&D session.

Conclusion

Valentine’s Day is not about spending money and giving gifts, it’s all about reminding how much you love the other person. Gifts are just a material way to do that, but we all know that D&D is always the perfect gift.

Don’t forget to share your love and passions with your significant other and I hope both of you have great and memorable adventures!
