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)

Once your D&D players have completed a couple basic campaigns, this book or Keys from the Golden Vault (below) will help them further develop their skills and level up characters.

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.

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.
