Witch Gift Guide 2023:
1) Spell Candles
Candles of all kinds are sure to be a hit with any witch in your life, but did you know they carry great symbolism often used in spells and pagan rituals?
Candle magick is a simple form of witchcraft that focuses on manifestation. The flame is believed to connect the physical world to the spiritual realm, while different colours release a particular kind of energy. Have a look into the meaning of each colour and create a gift that is personal to what your witch needs!
These Magic Spell Candles from Yellow Sunrise are the perfect addition to any witch’s magickal kit. Complete the gift with some thrifted or hand made candle holders.

Every beginner witch needs to start somewhere! A baby witch starter kit is full of useful tools ideal for those who are new to witchcraft. Think crystals, herbs, spell cards and essential items for an altar set up.
The beauty of this gift is that it can be purchased as a pre-made set, or you can design the kit yourself. They are also available at a range of price points and are usually made by knowledgable witches keen to share their craft.
Here are three kits at varying prices:

8) Wiccan Wheel of the Year or Zodiac Calendar
A calendar is the ideal gift for witches who want to stay on top of key dates. The Wiccan Wheel of the Year keeps track of the eight Sabbats and seasonal changes, while an astrological calendar keeps note of moon phases and important lunar transits.
This gift is both useful and a beautiful piece of witchy home decor. Feeling artsy? Design your own calendar as a wall hanging.

11) Mortar and Pestle
Every kitchen witch knows the importance of a mortar and pestle! While this might seem like one of the more unusual gifts on our list, this is an essential item for grinding herbs and blending spell ingredients together.
This is a fantastic present to buy second hand as they often go unused in a standard kitchen! Create a gift set by including dried herbs and spices.
Mason jars or witchy wooden spoons for cooking are also great additions to this gift.
12) Witches Brew
With the colder months officially here, it is definitely brew season! Tea blends are an accessible form of herbal magick while also offering natural remedies to seasonal ailments.
Companies such as Witches Tea offer many pre-made blends described as ‘a ritual in a cup’. It is also possible to create your own loose leaf blends for a more personal gift idea.
Create a tea gift set by including a thrifted mug, tea strainer or a vintage teapot.

13) Astrology Journal
An astrology journal is used to deepen the understanding of planetary alignments and the effect they have on each sign. This is an ideal present for beginners and advanced stargazers alike!
Each page should keep note of current moon and planetary placements alongside journal entries to reflect on current moods and feelings. The journal can then be used for reflection and perspective when the lunar cycle repeats.
This could be a plain journal with a striking cover relevant to their sign, or one that is filled out with helpful guidelines and notes.
14) Altar Essentials
For those who practice witchcraft, altar tools are essential. You can find beautiful altar cloths, chalices, pentacles and witch bells that not only serve a purpose but also add an aesthetic touch to any sacred space.
These options make for a spiritual gift that can contribute to important practices and rituals. If possible, take a peek at their altar and see what they might not have yet!
The Little Witch Shop have a wide array of items perfect for completing an altar.
15) Book of Shadows
A book of shadows is a place to keep spells, rituals, dreams and their meanings; basically any useful information required to deepen ones practice.
Now seen as more of a personal journal, this book was originally a written text followed by the religion of Wicca. Many adaptations have been published over the years.
Depending on the recipient, either a blank journal or physical text would make a wonderful gift.
16) Good Witch Perfume
Perfumes have long encapsulated glamour magick and alluring witchy vibes. Made of essential oils and placed on areas of the body where personal magic is concentrated, these scents can channel powerful energy into the world.
