Alice’s Gift Guide for Witches and Spooky Bitches

Dec 14, 2019

By Christine Colby

Seems like everyone is a witch or Satanist these days, or at least occultist-adjacent. Here are some gorgeous Yule gifts for the spell-casters and hexers out there.

Lucifer lipstick

Designed by Alexandra James of “Satanic Doo Wop” band Twin Temple, this cruelty-free and vegan matte lipstick is a long-wearing powerful red. James says she designed it “with fellow witches, Satanists, and dwellers of the dark in mind.” The luxe packaging includes a free download code for the band’s “Lucifer, My Love” song.

Séance

This gorgeous 300-page volume, described as “part documentary, part ghost story,” features photographs and text by Shannon Taggart as well as illustrated essays by Tony Oursler and Andreas Fischer — and a foreword by well-known Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd, who is a fourth-generation Spiritualist. This exploration of contemporary Spiritualism evolved from Taggart’s many visits to Lily Dale, New York, the world’s largest Spiritualist community. Taggart’s images are haunting and will leave you questioning what’s real and what resides on other planes.

Handmade metal-and-crystal jewelry

Metalsmith and jewelry artist Bianca Havens uses an array of techniques such as silversmithing, Tiffany technique, and electroforming in copper. Paletree Arcana offers statement jewelry pieces that showcase crystals, gemstones, and naturally shed antlers.

Santa Satan Hood Hat

 Here’s what you need to still feel like “you” while you attend your office holiday party. This mischievous hat from boutique fashion designer House of Mars features retro-style horns adorned with glittery garland and festive pom-poms.

Candle Magick

Hudson Valley magickal apothecary Other Worldly Waxes creates highly charged and beautiful candles for your workings. Each candle is created by hand with oil, incense, glitter, and other offerings. When you order, include your astrological sign and the candle’s intention for the appropriate sigils and other adornments.

Santa Muerte pendant

While everyone else is focused on Santa Claus, how about some Santa Muerte? “Holy Death” is a folk saint popular in Mexico and the Mexican diaspora, often pictured as a female Grim Reaper. The pendant is gold-colored with rhinestones and crystal.

Light Magic for Dark Times by Lisa Marie Basile.

 Look at this as self-care for witches. This book contains “more than 100 spells, rituals, and practices for coping in a crisis.” Like, every day, right? An accomplished poet, Basile includes poetry-writing exercises for self-discovery, a graveyard meditation, a spell to recharge after a protest or social justice work, and much more.

“I’ve Got You” Heart Pendant

Each one-of-a-kind piece is an assemblage of vintage glass doll eyes, rhinestones, and beads and other tiny treasures. SeeSpotRun also offers a diverse selection of other jewelry items such as Frozen Charlotte pendants, earrings made from doll parts, charm bracelets, and vintage and Steampunk style tree toppers.

Custom handmade planchette

Artist Jessi Hardesty offers one-of-a-kind planchettes to be used either as art or with your Ouija board. They are larger than average planchettes, and each is hand carved and hand painted.

Tarot reading or lesson

French-born and Sorbonne-educated Laeitita Barbier is an intuitive counselor and experienced tarot reader. She offers readings of different lengths, tarot classes, and other courses. Depending on your location, she will work with you in person, over the phone, or via Skype.
