In the third installment of the Witchy/Woo gift guide for 2017, we’ll examine some options for the masters of plant magick and lovers of all things herbal. Whether they’re growing their own lush gardens, whipping up delicious kitchen witchery, or constantly offering advice on the right herbal remedies, you’ll find solid gift ideas.
Gifts for the plant fans
We’ll start with ideas for the tarot-and oracle obsessed (because admittedly, that’s my bias). The Pythia Botanica Oracle and Ophidia Rosa Tarot by Leila + Olive are packed with plant magick, and work together beautifully. These tea-stained decks with silky card stock and gold edges feel wonderfully luxurious. The Soulflower Plant Spirit Oracle offers a colorful set of messages from the botanical world.
Ritual Botanica, a small-batch apothecary, offers amazing essential waters and hydrosols–distilled plant extracts with amazing energy and scent, often far safer to use than essential oils. Beautiful antique-styled labels and packaging add to the gift appeal. They carry oils, teas, and body creams as well.
Looking for some sort of garden accessory? The Bower Studio has great gifts that attract pollinators, like bee and bat houses. I also have a crush on some of their flora and fauna themed infinity scarves. Best of all, they’ve got plantable seed cards: note cards with a seed mixture including Bird’s Eye, Clarkia, Black Eyed Susan, Sweet Alyssum, English Daisy, Catchfly and Snapdragon.
I love some of these so much that I got something listed here for my mother, a lifelong gardener and plant fan. If you’ve got a green thumb, what are you hoping for under the Yule tree?
