And if a regular board game is a good gift, you know what makes for an even better one? A fancy-ass version of that board game. There are a lot of "deluxe" board games floating around — special or vintage editions, ones with real metal pieces, leather trimming, or finely-crafted woodwork that make the games a) last pretty much forever, and b) double as décor. Sure, some of them are expensive (which makes them a great item to go in on with friends), but others are actually affordable and make for thoughtful gifts, which, #win.
