Every witch needs to know their plants! Herblore has been an foundational part of magical practice for centuries, and even if you’re not a green witch, it’s still helpful to have a grounding in plants and their properties. And if you know a budding forager or herbal healer, Fez Inkwright’s books on herblore are absolutely essential witchy reading! Bound in beautifully embossed canvas covers, glittering whenever they catch the light, Folk Magic and Healing and Botanical Curses and Poisons make the perfect Christmas gift for the witch who has everything.
Tarot is not just for Christmas… it’s for life!
Whatever you want to know about life, just ask the tarot and the answers will come… The tarot is the perfect, versatile life tool, whether you’re looking to suss out the future, or want to work on your self development and need something to help you reflect and challenge yourself with new questions. With their exciting illustrations, tarot decks come in all shapes and sizes — and it can be difficult to know where to start!
For a beginner, you can’t go wrong with the Rider-Waite-Smith… but for a gift it’s nice to get them something a little more special. When it comes to tarot, the art and theme of the deck are the most important things. It’s something you, or your giftee, will be using regularly, and they’ve gotta chime with it! So when you’re looking for tarot as a gift, look for art that reminds you of the person you’re buying for. Be sure to read the back of the decks for the blurb, as this will give you an idea of what the deck is about.
To use our decks as an example, The New Chapter Tarot is all about turning points, new starts, and community — so, it would be a great gift for someone who’s facing down a big change in their life and wants to use the tarot to help them make decisions. For someone who loves beautiful art and mystical vibes, The White Numen and The Cosmic Slumber are great choices. The Luna Sol is designed for softer, gentle readings and self-care, while Mystical Medleys is great for animation afficionados. And of course, you can’t go wrong with the bestselling Modern Witch Tarot, a stylish, modern take on the ultimate in tarot, the Rider-Waite-Smith itself.
But what if your witchy pal already has their fill of tarot decks — but you’re at a loss as to anything else they’re interested in? Fear not, we’ve got you covered. Tarot isn’t just about the cards, and we’ve got plenty of activity books for everyone from beginner readers to tarot pros. The Modern Witch Tarot Journal is a great way to keep track of your readings, while our tarot colouring books immerse the reader in the cards, taking them on a wonderful journey through the arcana.
