Chaotic good, tiefling, botch— if you recognize these phrases, chances are you have been around Dungeons and Dragons players!
Our teen daughters started playing Dungeons & Dragons in the last year, and quickly became fans. But understanding what gifts D&D players will appreciate can be confusing for non-players (me). So I asked my youngest daughter (who is a Dungeon Master) to help me come up with a list of gifts for dungeon masters (DMs).
@dinkumtribe Last year, our teen daughters have gotten into playing dungeons and dragons, and today they are teaching my husband and son how to play. @DinkumTribe ADHD family travel @DinkumTribe ADHD family travel @DinkumTribe ADHD family travel #dungeonsanddragons #dungeonmaster #dndtiktok #familydnd #dungeonsandragons #familygamenight #dndtok #funandgames ♬ Your Turn to Roll (Critical Role Theme) – Laura Bailey & Ashley Johnson & Sam Riegel

Campaign Setting and Adventure Books
Campaign books provide dungeon masters with a pre-designed setting, complete with detailed locations, characters, and quests. These books serve as reference material, taking the burden off dungeon masters to create everything from scratch.
From classic fantasy settings to futuristic sci-fi worlds, a new campaign book is a great gift idea for your favorite D&D lover.
1. D&D Essentials Kit (Dungeons & Dragons Intro Adventure Set)
If your Dungeons and Dragons player is just getting started and has nothing at all, this is the set to begin with. It’s what we got our girls when they first expressed an interest in playing D&D.
2. D&D Starter Set: Dragons of Stormwreck Isle
This is another great beginner set for new D&D players. It allows them to build some skills and experience.
3. Phandelver and Below: The Shattered Obelisk (Dungeons & Dragons Adventure Book)
4. Keys From the Golden Vault (Dungeons & Dragons Adventure Book)
More Campaign Tools
In addition to campaign books, there are several other things a DM needs to enhance their storytelling. One such tool is a DM screen, which acts as a barrier between the dungeon master and players, hiding notes, maps, and secret information.
These screens often come printed with useful charts, tables, and reminders as well.
5. DND DM Screen 5e, D&D Dungeon Master Screen 3D Faux Leather 4 Panel Game Master Screen with Customizable Inserts
I’m loving the embossed images on this screen! Any dungeon master would love to upgrade their standard screen to this faux leather version.

7. Stratagem The Master’s Tome 4-Panel Customizable GM Screen with Free Inserts – Dry Erase, Dungeon & Game Master Accessory for Tabletop RPG Campaigns (Black)
This DM screen comes in several different colors and allows your Dungeon Master to write and wipe it off for each new campaign.
A campaign planner or journal can be the perfect tool for your dungeon master. These specially designed notebooks provide space to jot down ideas, keep track of character sheets and background information, and sketch out maps or diagrams.
8. DND Notebook / Journal, Unique 200 Page Book with 3D Bronze Dragon Embossed Faux Leather Cover with Pen- Ideal for Dungeons & Dragons
9. DND Campaign Journal with 3D Cthulhu Embossed Leather Cover
I don’t even know what a Cthulhu is, but this cover is fascinating!
10. Call of the Raven Storm Campaign Notebook
This is a super basic version, but that makes it easy to buy several copies for different campaigns.
11. DnD Campaign Builder: (300 pages)
This would be great for a more advanced D&D player who wants to design their own campaign from the ground up.
Some other good gifts to help dungeon masters include:
- A set of spell cards or monster cards
- A set of core rulebooks
- Individual rulebooks such as a Players Handbook, Monster Manual or Dungeon Masters Handbook

This is a classy, bound set of the books and includes a unique DM screen as well.

Innovative Dice Sets
According to my daughter, you can never have enough dice! Dice are an essential component of any tabletop role-playing game, and DnD games require at least one full set of polyhedral dice.
However, dungeon masters know that the right set can enhance the overall experience for both themselves and their players. DnD dice sets come in dozens of different colors, materials and designs, and DnD players often enjoy collecting different dice.

43. KERWELLSI Metal DND Dice Set, Green Dungeons and Dragons Dice with Box
These stunning metal dice are not only visually appealing, but the metal rolling around in your hands with each dice throw is “sensory-good” (as my oldest daughter with ADHD says). I could see these making a fantastic fidget alternative.
44. Haxtec Bloodstained Metal DND Dice Set
I didn’t even know dice accessories were a thing until my daughter started telling me about them! There are so many fun things to give your D&D dice collector, from a dice tower (for randomized rolls), to a good dice tray, to a dice vault for storage.

Besides the tabletop game, there are many online options for dungeon master gifts. The D&D Beyond website is a great resource for players, allowing them to engage with other D&D fans in an online platform. A subscription to this site would be a fantastic and practical gift for solo players who can’t always find friends to game with.
Even more gift ideas
Lastly, let’s not forget the many board games and card games inspired by Dungeons & Dragons. Themed board games, decks of collectible cards, and even a card game version of D&D can provide hours of entertainment for dungeon masters and players alike.

D&D birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, and anytime gifts
Surprise your favorite dungeon master with the perfect gift that will transport them to realms beyond their wildest dreams. As the Dungeon Master’s Guide states, “The worlds you create are unique to you. You have ultimate authority over what does and doesn’t exist within your campaign.” These gifts are tools to help unlock that authority and spark creativity.
