To be honest, this is NOT my favorite time of year. You can call me Scrooge or The Grinch; but, I find it a bit too hectic and draining of my energy. I can’t help think that it was never supposed to be this way. All the commercialism, gift buying, family drama, or for many people, loneliness, can completely ruined the holiday season.
For many of us non-Christians, we can also feel resentful about the obligation to participate in Christmas themed activities. This time of year, it’s impossible not to be inundated with reminders that we are the minority.
But, as a small business owner, I’d be stupid if I didn’t at least try to capitalize on the fervor created by the holidays. After all, everyone enjoys a nice gift, even witches.
I encourage you to shop small business as much as possible. Most small business owners truly appreciate your support, especially around the holidays.
Here are some of my favorite witchy small businesses:
Etsy Shops: Dark Sparkle Designs, Kazan Cauldron, Wendy Wildcraft, Charisma Crystals, Ruby Starling, The Gilded Crystal Shop, Hammerthreads, Ravenesk, MalikaMorbid
Books also make great gifts. Most of the witches I hang with are voracious readers. Here are some of my favorites:
Oracle Cards, Crystals, Tools and more:
I hope this list helps you to find the best gift for the witch in your life. You can click on any link, and it will take you right to the site or item.*
Just remember, if the holidays leave you frazzled, lonely, or feeling negative in any way, you are not alone. I encourage you to celebrate the holiday you’re most drawn to; or, no holiday at all, if you prefer. Don’t feel pressured to conform to the majority. Educate others about your beliefs, Sabbats, and traditions. I think you might be surprised at how receptive and accommodating people can be. If you think about it, they probably feel the same way about Halloween, when we’re all getting our freak on and celebrating. LOL!
