It’s hard not to love board games. They’re fun and nostalgic, and you can enjoy them with family and friends of all ages. Maybe their best feature of all is that you don’t have to be on your phone or computer to use them, which means that they’re a great way to log off, unwind, and de-stress.
But enjoying board games and being a board game lover are two very different things. You might know a board game lover if you go over their house and find a shelf specifically for board games, or they give you an obscure, unique game every year for holidays. Whether they’re into the classic titles or the newer editions, odds are they’d appreciate a board game-themed gift (or just being gifted a board game!) more than the average person. If you aren’t into board games, though, it might be hard to know what gift, exactly, to give them. It’s not like they have a shortage of games to choose from, after all.
Luckily, there are tons of gift options that incorporate gaming into decor, accessories, and much more. Looking for somewhere to start? Here are 20 gifts that any board game lover would enjoy.
