Jenn is the quintessential gamer; board games, video games, card games, table top games…she’s always ready to win. She’s sarcastic, fun, a great artist, and has such a big heart. She handles all of our custom requests with so much care, putting your memories on glassware. She moonlights as a video game expert and the general manager (High Guardian of the East Tower according to the owner) at the best gaming lounge in Metro Detroit, LFG Royal Oak. This week’s gift ideas were picked by Jenn, and are perfect to make all your gaming friends winners.
SLH Wood Designs is run by Shelley Hennigar out of Canada. She creates beautiful, handmade wooden items, and by far Jenn’s favorite is the euchre set. Euchre is a Michigan staple and Jenn’s dad was a euchre master. We can’t play at home because both Jenn and Terry know my tells too well and I lose every hand, no matter who I have for a partner!
You can find SLH Wood Designs on Etsy, Instagram, and Facebook.
Every tabletop gamer needs a phenomenal dice bag. Jenn doesn’t play D&D right now with as busy as she has been over the last few years, but the nerd life is in her blood and I know when the time is right she’ll join the right group. In the meantime, this beautiful dice bag from Words Remember is one of many fun items to keep the LARPer in your life happy.

Recent d20 dragon necklace for @rawrdragoncreations in fiery fall colors. She chose the d20 and told me to surprise her with the rest. Since the die was a mix of yellow and red, I decided to make a dragon in warm fall colors and pulled out my favorite red-orange color shifting flakes. Leafy wings and horns are in bronze because it's her favorite clay color, and I added a few colored spots down the back to pull everything together. I like how how this little one turned out - she's a bit fancier than my usual necklace dragons.
If you’re not quite a LARPer (which Jenn definitely is not), How Many Dragons on Etsy has beautiful dragon collectables. Most notably the beautiful dragon necklaces are perfect for the tabletop gamer in your life that loves to look pretty. Follow How Many Dragons on Instagram, Facebook, Etsy, and their DeviantArt to see all the cute dragons.
This design was made specifically for me by Jenn. I’m notorious for button mashing because I can’t bother to figure out all those confusing controller buttons. I do pretty well on Smash Bros as long as I’m Yoshi and can turn people into egg poop, but that doesn’t result in any good will from my friends that actually play video games.
This design can include a name in the trophy, up to 5 letters, or a name on the back. If there’s another (non-trademarked and non-licensed) idea that you have for your favorite gamer let Jenn know. She loves to create all things gamer nerd.

This week's blog post is about GAMES! We just got a Nintendo Switch this year and are looking forward to more video game time after the holidays. Jenn's favorite game is Zelda Breath of the Wild, mine is Mario Party, and Edgar is looking forward to Pokemon Sword & Sheild. Terry loves GTA San Andreas, so we're anxiously awaiting the next Playstation release as well. In the meantime @lfg.ro has our back for all the games we don't own. What's your favorite game and console? Tag your favorite button masher! #gaming #gamergirl #nintendoswitch #gamenight #gamernerd #euchrenight #boardgames #videogames #lfgroyaloak
The last idea in this post is a fabulous board game tracker from Daft Concepts. The design is a fun way to keep track of which games you’ve played and how many times you’ve played, perfect for the family of game enthusiasts. In our house we play Cards Against Humanity, Clue, and Villainous, along with games like Go Fish for the small child in the house.
