What to get for a Pagan or Wiccan for a gift when you are not one.

Looking for Pagan or Wiccan gifts for Winter Solstice or Christmas has become easer over the last few years. You no longer have to search for out of the way occult shops. Pagans and Wicca has become more mainstream, and so has the availability of gifts. You can actually go into the mall and find Pagan or Wiccan books, tarot cards, calendars, and other gifts marketed to Pagans and Wiccans.

There are tons of online specialty shops that cater to Pagan and Wicca needs and wants. You can even find quality gifts on web sites that are not seen as being Pagan or Wiccan. It is nice to have the competition online. The availability of Pagan and Wicca products has increased and in some instances quality has gone up and prices have gone down.

So now you have gone from trying to find something, anything to give as a gift to having to figure out what is the best thing to give. Nice change. So how do you know what to get some one now that you have choices? It depends on what the person wants. When it comes to Pagan and Wicca products there are some things people have to buy for themselves. . Not a good idea just to say, “Hey that looks Pagan, I will get that”, because being a Pagan or Wicca is their religion you don’t want to get the wrong thing. It would be like giving a Jewish person a cross or a little jade Buddha. Gift certificates are a good option. It may not be as much fun, but it does let the person find just the right thing for them. This is also the best option if you don’t know the person that well.

Another option is to get the person you are buying for to go to a web store and make a wish list, such as the one on That way people buying gifts for them know what they want and where to get it. This also helps for things like rings, this way not only do you know what they like and you know the size they need. This is some thing you need to talk about with the person. The more you know about what the person wants the easer it is on you. Also if you can get several ideas, i.e. the wish list, then you know what they want and they have no idea of what they are getting.
