The Best Holiday Gifts For Your Sister Witches

You'll want to keep an extra set of tarot cards for yourself.

'Tis officially the season for gift-giving. For us, that's a full month in which we'll be providing gift ideas for everyone on your list with our 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.

The holiday season falls during the darkest time of the year, with the winter solstice — AKA the shortest day and longest night on the calendar — hitting on December 21 in the northern hemisphere. For witches, or any astrology-following person, this is a powerful time of year that marks the start of the winter season.

Spiritually, winter solstice is a time for rest, cleansing (hello, smudging herbs), reflection, but also for conception. And it makes total sense. If fall represents death in the seasonal cycle, and spring is rebirth, then the time between is a period of conception and preparation. It may be dark and cold, but it’s also a necessary part of the cycle so that new ideas can bloom in the spring, flourish in the summer, and be harvested in the fall.

This makes it the perfect occasion for taking the time to release, recharge, and explore your inner magick. And what better gift to give than an opportunity (and the fun tools) for your sisters, both blood and chosen, to do the same?

We rounded up the best gifts for your sister witches — or really anyone looking to infuse a bit of magick into their everyday lives — from important reads and guides to ritual tools and altar décor. No need to be a seasoned, practicing witch; these gifts are also fit for witchcraft novices and the occult curious.

We only include products that have been independently selected by NYLON's editorial team. However, we may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.
