Great Yule/Christmas Gifts for Pagans

Great Yule/Christmas Gifts for Pagans

Here are a few ideas for pagan gifts this Yule

If someone asked me what pagan-ish gifts I’d like this year—which nobody ever does, of course, since most believe that Christmas is really about Christ and that I am a heathen wild person—I would answer with a bunch of crystal quartz pendants. These are not very expensive, and they can be hung around the house—over your bed, your office desk, etc.—on nine-inch red cords for good luck. That would be a very welcome gift for many other pagans, I am sure—as would a horseshoe to hang over the front door, as we recently purchased.

Here are a few other ideas for pagan gifts this Yule; feel free to share your own as well.

  • Blank books. Many pagans run out of these quickly, especially if they are constantly taking notes and expanding their knowledge about lore, plants, and gemstones. Many pagans are also artists; one of the best ways to really get a feel for a particular pantheon is to doodle goddesses and gods from that realm. A book about a new pantheon is always welcome, too, which leads me to…
  • Books! What pagan do you know that doesn’t enjoy reading or researching? Nearly every pagan I know is a bibliophile and would love a gift card to a bookstore or some books from his or her wish list. See if your friend has all of the books by a favorite author; if not, that would probably be a perfect gift.
  • A delicious wassail recipe complete with ingredients. I had an orange-y one years ago that I have never been able to replicate and wish I could. Other baking ingredients or cooking items are great for many pagans, too.
  • Sage sticks. I am always in need of those and I know many other pagans are, too. Any other supplies—from candles to incense, gems to herbs, to even a pretty new athame—would likely be welcome as well. If in doubt, you could always get a gift certificate to a favorite metaphysical supply store.
  • Classes. Whether self-development or pagan in nature, many pagans really enjoy furthering their education and would gladly accept this gift.
  • Musical instruments. Many drums, flutes, and rattles from international sources may be purchased inexpensively and offer both beauty and music for the home. These have always been favorite gifts of mine and my daughter and I really enjoy making music with them.
