Everyone has that one friend who does live action roleplaying (a.k.a. LARPing). At first it seemed weird, but you’ve come to accept it. Or better yet, you’ve tried it for yourself and now you’re just as hooked. What special gift could you get for this person? And what if you don’t know anything about their character? Don’t fret, dear reader. I’m here to help.
When pondering gifts for LARPers, consider both the fantastical and the practical. They love their costumes and weapons, but sometimes a practical accessory is what they really need. Also consider what they play and where. Are they doing a fantasy game in the woods? Or are they doing sci-fi on a space station? What about the ones who play NERF wars in the park? Once you know the basic play style, it’ll be easier to narrow down what they might like.
