As the cold weather sets in, there’s nothing better than a good old-fashioned game night. Most of us know at least one person who’s a pro at Trivial Pursuit, gets stirred up over Scrabble or unleashes a friendly fury over Monopoly. If you have a board game lover in your life, why not give them a gift that will get their competitive juices flowing? We've selected 32 games that make ideal presents this holiday season, and every time of year.

Whether they’re into card games, trivia challenges, or adventure quests, we've included gift ideas for every type of board gamer. For nature lovers, check out the newly released Photosynthesis game—each player strategically places 3D cardboard trees on the board with the aim to gather the most sunlight. By the end of the game, there will be a forest in the center of your table! Family members and friends will find hours of fun in this creative game. Additionally, for those with an interest in interior design, the Azul tile-laying game is inspired by the patterned azulejos ceramic tiles of the Moors.

If your giftee’s games cabinet is already overflowing, why not get them something to help keep their components organized, such as playing card holders or collapsible dice trays? Each of these practical accessories makes for a great gift that will be used time and time again. Just remember to keep an open mind when you're shopping, because you might find products that surprise you with their high-quality design and unique premise.
