Stocking Stuffers for Your Dungeon Master

It's one thing to buy the dungeon master in your life a big gift when all the players chip in, but if you want to get something special for a DM that's not too expensive, there are now plenty of options. The criteria for this list is that the gift should be inexpensive (under $20) and small enough to fit in a stocking. They're ranked from least to most expensive.​

"Oooh, look at those socks!" Clicks link. Sees price of 31.90. Cries silently.
I buy fun socks all the time when I'm at Old Navy and the like, and they always start feeling like they're going to fall asleep after a very few wearings. I'm starting to wonder if more expensive socks will make the difference.

Pass on the socks as most of the fantasy socks I seen are toe nail catchers. But back scratcher for moving minis. Dice especially from relatives who don't understand the game. $8 at walmart. Dry Erase markers for DMs who use dry erase maps. $1+. Dragon ornaments from Design Toscano 12.95. Gift cards.

I have bought a ton of gifts for the people I play with this year for Christmas by looking on Etsy. Unless you are the type who rolls their dice a thousand times while tracking their results on a spreadsheet to make sure they're properly balanced, I highly recommend Etsy. So many fun and interesting dice.

I got one player dice with retro 1980s'-style digital displays instead of regular numbers, another tiny pandas floating around inside clear dice, another ones with sand and seashells inside the dice (settled to look like a sea bottom) and, for myself, I just got some d6s where the sides are illustrated with computer RPG icons (an 8-bit helmet for ones, gems for sixes, etc.).

Stupid question.. did you use to run a mud back in the day called RetroMud? This name really rings a bell, and vaguely remember reviewing some of your early modules back then for feedback and doing a zone or two of coding.
