Looking for the perfect gift for the witch in your life? Look no further! In this blog post, we will discuss some of the best gifts that a witch would love to receive. We will cover everything from books and candles to crystals and cauldrons. So whether you are looking for a gift for your favorite witchy friend or want to treat yourself, we have you covered!
The best gifts for witches are definitely personal, so be sure to investigate what witchy gifts your friends might like before you get to buying. But, just in case – here's a selection of ideas so you can pick the perfect gift for your modern witch.
If you've got a baby witch on your hands, then spell candles might be the way to go. These candles come in all different colors, each with their own meaning. For example, white candles are often used for cleansing and protection spells. Whereas black candles are perfect for banishing spells. So, be sure to do your research before you buy!
Many witches use spell candles during all the different moon phases, making it the perfect gift that keeps on giving. So if you think your friend is into moon rituals as a practicing witch – spell candles are definitely the way to go.

The first time my mom smelled incense in her home, I think she questioned her parenting. Incense is among the most classic Wiccan gifts, but anyone can use incense. You know – because it smells good. So if your friend is witchy but not yet a modern witch, consider some incense. It'll give them some positive energy and a little bit of practical magic, too.

A New Tarot Deck
I know, I know. All the advice out there is to keep one tarot deck and work with it. Your tarot cards will become attuned to you and make your tarot deck more powerful. That being said – we live in the world of Amazon, and there are TONS of amazing, cool, awesome tarot cards out there. So don't hold back!
At $10-50, a new tarot deck is the perfect gift for a baby witch friend, an experienced modern witch, and everyone in between. Get your hocus pocus on and give them a gift that they'll love. It's almost as good as a crystal ball!
I love this Modern Witch Tarot as a gift to my fave witches.
Essential Oils: Wiccan Gifts for everyone
Another important component of spells, essential oils make the perfect Wiccan gifts or pagan gift ideas. There's an oil for all the moon phases, for casting spells, and even for cleansing rituals. So if you want to get your witchy friend something practical, then essential oils are a great choice. Plus – oils are so popular now, they're not even considered “hocus pocus” by more critical folks.
Not only do they have a million and one uses – but these gift ideas smell fabulous, too. So your friend can use them in their spellwork AND enjoy the amazing scent. Talk about a win-win — the ultimate Wiccan gifts!

Witchy Accessories For A Witch's Altar
Sometimes we talk about pagan gifts without recognizing that the modern witch is religious and likely keeps an altar and a sacred space. That's why gift ideas for the altar are so thoughtful. Many of us agonize over the figurines or salt dishes for ourselves, but will happily accept an altar cloth given to us by a close friend.

Gems or Stones: The Perfect Wiccan Gifts
Rose quartz, amethyst, and other beautiful stones always have a place on the altar of the modern witch. They improve our sacred space by removing pollutants and bad energy. Gems are the ultimate witchy gifts – and you can find lots or individual stones, depending on your friend's need.
This “tiny but cute” set of 45 different gem stone chips caught my eye as a way to give a friend variety. Then, they can choose to purchase a bigger stone with the characteristics they might want.
A Mystery Box or Subscription
This is the perfect gift for the witch in your life who loves surprises. You can find mystery boxes filled with all sorts of witchy things – from spell ingredients to candles and more. For the modern witch who loves to be surprised, a mystery box is always a good idea. Who knows? They might even contain a new set of tarot cards or a witch's brew drink. I've heard CrateJoy is a good place to scope new boxes!
Dried Herbs or Spices As Wiccan Gifts
Last but not least, we have dried herbs and spices. These make the perfect witchy gifts because they can be used in spells, rituals, and even cooking. If your friend loves to cook – then they'll love a gift of fresh spices. And if they're into spellwork, then they can use the herbs to create their own potions.
A note about white sage: while it is a popular choice, unless the witch in your life has indigenous ancestry, don't give them white sage. It's appropriative. There are plenty of other dried flowers and herbs that we can use to cleanse a space that doesn't give bad vibes.
This starter herb kit is great for a baby witch!
Beginner Witch Books
If you've got a baby witch on your hands, your gift giving should focus on giving them the tools they need to be successful. And that means a good beginner book on witchcraft. The modern witch has access to so much information, but it can be hard to sift through it all. A beginner book is the perfect way to give them a leg up – and help them find their path in life.
We've talked about books here before, but my favorite beginner witch books are:
- Green Witchcraft by Paige Vanderbeck
- Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham
- Living Wicca by Scott Cunningham
So there you have it! These are some of the best gifts around for a witch's well being, magic, and celebrating the beautiful wheel of time that we're all on. No matter what you choose, your friend is sure to appreciate the thoughtfulness behind it.
Happy gifting! And blessed be. Do you have any other great gift ideas for witches? Share them in the comments below!
