'Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that’s a full month (31 days!) in which we’ll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our Unwrapped holiday gift guides. So make your holiday shopping a breeze this season, and let us help you find gifts for all the people in your life—and maybe even a spoiled pet or two.
There’s a lot more to the holiday season than bright, twinkling Christmas decorations and carols. In fact, the holidays come during a much darker, more introspective time of year—a time meant for looking inward and channeling one’s own inner magick. It’s the season of witch, if you will.
In other words: Screw traditional holiday presents. What better way to celebrate than by blessing your fellow sisters—both seasoned witches and occult novices—with some truly magickal gifts?
If you find yourself stumped on what that might entail, look no further than our guide. We sought out the best ritual tools, the latest reads, mystical décor, and more that will make the perfect offerings for today’s modern witch. From practical magick essentials to stunning new altar editions, some spellbinding suggestions for your metaphysically leaning girlfriends await, below.

This candle not only makes the perfect addition to any witch’s home but also acts as a cheat sheet for palmistry.

The smudge stick is an essential tool for a witch, and this one is simply a must-have. Combining cedar, white sage, sweetgrass, rose, and palo santo, these bundles not only clear the energy and invoke protection and healing, but look good on your altar, as well.

Hoodwitch, Obsidian Scrying Mirror, $30, available at Hoodwitch.
When it comes to the more experienced witch, why not invite her to delve deeper into the past, present, and the future with an obsidian mirror meant for a scrying ritual? (Scrying, BTW, means "the ancient act of divination for the purpose of clairvoyance." The more you know, the more magick you can do!)

The essential wall piece for the activist witch in your life.

This pretty little pendant necklace serves as a reminder of the magic we hold inside of us, making it a lovely gift for the special ladies in your life.
