If you're struggling to come up with something clever, beautiful, magical or meaningful, most of the gifts below check those boxes. And they're all just so pretty! Almost all of them come from local shops, small press publishers or Etsy stores. They're also either super cheap or very affordable (ranging from $6 to less than $100). From books and inspired perfumes to crystals and candles, there is definitely something here for everyone.
This Litographs Hamlet poster
There are dozens of posters and other goodies here for the lit lovers in your life. Each poster is made entirely from words.
This Witchsy 'You Remind Me of Myself' notebook
I love how ridiculous and kitschy this is. Magic.
This issue of Sabat Magazine
One of the best publications for witches. Beautiful, intelligent and enchanting. Ships worldwide.
This Edward Gorey Fantod tarot deck.
I have this deck - it's so incredible, and every card is worth a conversation in itself.
These Emily Dickinson tights via Coline Design on Etsy
What could be better than Dickinson tights? Pretty much nothing.
These agate book ends via Pottery Barn
Pretty pretty pretty!
These 3 Super Seven stones via ChakraHealingShop on Etsy
A great deal for something so powerful. Supporting Etsy shops is always better than buying crystals from corporate stores.
This Coyote perfume via For Strange Women
I can't stop obsessing on every single item this indie perfumery sells. Coyote is a rich, earthy scent.
This People to Cast Spells On Notebook via Gypsy Warrior
Because there are a lot of people. (But seriously don't do dark magic. It comes back on you.)
This book — Grimoire of the Thorn-Blooded Witch: Mastering the Five Arts of Old World Witchery
I love how this cover is about as decadent as it gets. It's also a fantastic read for anyone with an obsession over folklore and culture.
This Literary Queen Of The Wood Perfume Mist or Oil via AnamCaraGifts on Easy
You need everything this shop sells. Plus, you can pick whether you want oil or mist.
This Many Moons Workbook via Ritual Ritual.
Because this book contains spell suggestions and self development ideas.
This Mort Candle via Ritual Ritual
I mean, how would you not want this? It's not macabre; it's a light that burns for who has passed.
This Poe's Tobacco Perfume via Tokyo Milk
What better gift for your dark-hearted friend? This scent is heady and deep, like anything Poe.
This Lavender & Vanilla or Customized Lavender Gemstone and Botanical Fragrance Oil on Etsy via BethKaya.
Because it's better to have botanicals. Also, look at those little vials!
This Claire Goodchild Moon & Stars Sagittarius Art Print via Urban Outfitters.
The moon should always be with you.
This Purr-ride and Purr-rejudice blush via Hello Waffle Cosmetics.
These lovely cosmetics are all named after books AND are cat themed. You're welcome!
Strega Nona by Tomie dePaola
I read this book as a child every night for years, and every good witch should own one today. It's a look at an old Italian witch, and even if it's silly, it's a classic.
This Mini Lunar Filigree Spirit Board via EnchantedRumors on Etsy
Way, way cooler than the ones you can buy at Target.
This Witches coloring book via MickieMueller on Etsy
If you're gonna do adult coloring, why not with witches?

These Gilda Heels from Myths of Creation (Brooklyn, NY)
We're huge fans of Myths of Creation - a woman owned shop in Brooklyn. These shoes are the glittery miracles someone needs for New Years!
This Forest Magic Witch Kit by BohemianMystery via Etsy
Spell kits are beautiful, useful and crafted with love, especially from these indie sellers.
This Anais Nin necklace by SarahWoodJewelry via Etsy
This is basically everything you'll ever need over your heart. Praise Anais.
This Lit Witch tee from Witch Craft Magazine
The lovely folks at Witch Craft Magazine make some beautiful things and publish some beautiful words. This tee is perfect. Support them!
This Borealis via Free People
There is so much nature and power out there. When you cannot be around it, this little ball will remind you of it.
This Wicked Witch tree ornament via MayoBass on Etsy
Not everything needs to be made of tinsel and reindeer.
