2019 Holiday Gift Guide for Witches

holiday, gift guide, witches

Its that time of year again!! The holidays are in and that means Yule and presents and lights and warm, cozy blankets with tea and a good book. I love Yule, maybe more than Halloween. Blasphemy I know. But I just love all the little decorations and lights and giving gifts to the people I love. It's also one of the few times when people are extremely charitable, and that makes me feel even more warm and cozy than a blanket and tea. Continuing last year's tradition, I put together a gift guide for hedgewitches. Whether you are shopping for yourself or your favorite witch, I'm sure this list won't disappoint!

Disclosure: Some of the links below are affiliate links, meaning, at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase.

1. The Book of Hedge Druidry: A Complete Guide for the Solitary Seeker by Joanna van der Hoeven.
I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing this book this year prior to publication. It was easily one of the best books I read all year and I strongly recommend it to anyone interested in hedgecraft with a Druidry twist. You can read my full review here. So if the witch in your life is itching to learn something new this is a great place to start!

holiday, gift guide, witches, honoring your ancestors

2. Honoring Your Ancestors: A Guide to Ancestral Veneration by Mallorie Vaudoise
Yes, another book, but this one is really good too and I couldn't leave it off the list. Vaudoise does an amazing job breaking down ancestral veneration and calling for everyone, witches and nonwitches alike, to remember their ancestors as we did in the old day. Building relationships with them brings new meaning to anyone's life and can play an important role in a witch's craft, especially a hedgewitch. Your witch will love this book and appreciate the thought. (You can read my full review here.)

3. The Witches Planner 2020
I adore planners, especially magical ones that help me keep my life together. A growing trend in witchcraft is practicing daily witchcraft, and a planner is a great way to help a witch do that. The Witches Planner comes in a variety of options, including a hardcopy with or without the binder or a printable version. Purchasing the planner plus the binder is a little pricy at $58, but you can reuse the binder year after year. Furthermore, this planner is available in both Northern and Southern Hemisphere versions, so no matter where your witch lives, they can plan their magical year to the fullest.

4. Bone Reader Ritual Oil from Anita Apothecary
Keeping with my series theme this year covering bone magic, I couldn't help but add this magical oil to the list. Specifically designed for anointing your bones used in bone readings and to guide and inspire your visions. The 1/2 ounce vile contains sandalwood, mugwort, moonstone, apatite, emerald, patchouli essential oil, and sandalwood essential oil along with a real bone for an extra magical kick. The vile is $20, but like all oils, a little bit will go a long way.

5. 10 Item Curiosities Mystery Box from Of Moth and Moon
Again in keeping with my bone magic theme this year, we have a box of 10 curiosities. I purchased a larger random box earlier this year and it's one of my favorite purchases. Each box is specifically curated for the purchaser and comes with a collection of animal bones and teeth, fossils, raw stones, minerals, tumbled stones, crystals, and a variety of other awesome goodies like antler tips and pearls. Of Moth and Moon keeps detailed records of purchases, so they won't send you duplicates if you order more than once. For $25, this is an excellent way to help the witch in your life grow their magical cabinet. Plus, all the remains are ethically sourced!

6. Amethyst Offering Bowl from A and S Crystals
This hand-carved, natural amethyst bowl is the perfect altar addition. Whether the witch in your life honors a deity or deities, their ancestors, or local spirits, this offering bowl is a great way to present offerings. It's sure to impress even the most reluctant of spirits. It's just $25, but I think they only have 1 left! However, A and S Crystals offers a host of other amazing offering bowls, including one in rose quartz, clear quartz,  tree agate, and even unakite!

holiday, gift guide, witches, full moon tea

7. Full Moon Tea by Tamed Wild
Okay, tea, and maybe coffee, is a staple of witchcraft. That's a given, so of course, there is tea on the list, moon tea to be exact. Tamed Wild produces some of the best magical teas I have ever tried, along with Magickal Folk, who is featured next. This tea is specifically designed for those Full Moon rituals and contains black tea, orange peel, cinnamon chips, apple pieces, rose petals, with natural fruit and spice flavoring. It's a delicious tea and will get the witch in your life ready to dance under the light of the moon. Looking for a New Moon tea? Tamed Wild has you covered there as well! You can find their New Moon tea, which contains raspberry lead, vitex, nettle leaf, linden flower, cinnamon, lemon, rose, and stevia, here.

holiday, gift guide, witches, summon tea

8. Summon Ritual Tea by Magickal Folk
One of my favorite teas comes from Magickal Folk. Going by the name of Summon, this tea contains Irish breakfast, elderberry, elderflower, dandelion root, and ginger root. I received this tea last year as part of a subscription box and fell immediately in love. It tastes great and gives you that extra boost of confidence before spell work. Unfortunately, my favorite tea from Magickal Folk is not on this list because it is currently out of stock, but their Thinning of the Veil tea is the best tea I've drunk to help open the doorways to communicate with spirits. If it happens to come available before the holidays, you should definitely add it to your holiday shopping list for the witch in your life.

9. See No Evil Herbal Candle by Moody Moons Magic
I've following Moody Moons for quite some time and always love seeing what is being handmade especially for witches. This candle, inspired by folklore, is scented with blackberry and sage with a light sprinkling of rosemary on top. If the witch in your life is anything like me, they will love having the extra bit of protection while hedge riding, communing with spirits, or working spellwork in general.

10. Tamed Wild Subscription Box by Tamed Wild
Out of all the subscription boxes I have ordered, Tamed Wild is my favorite. They offer a variety of subscription boxes and each month comes jammed packed with ritual and spell goodies. This is a great way to help build a witch's cabinet, grow your craft, or practice more often. They also offer a tea of the month subscription or a one-time crystal box if that is more up the alley of the witch in your life.

This year I picked items that were on the cheaper side. Most of these gifts are less than $25, with an exception or two. I love every single item on this list, and have tried most of them so I can vouch for the people, companies, and magic involved. No matter what you decide to get the witch in your life, remember, its not about the money you spent, but the love and thought that counts! Happy holidays!
