My Favorite Thing to Give Everyone, Ever:
Atmosphere Mysts from my fave witch, Angela Mary Magick. I SWEAR by these sprays – and gift them to my friends all the time. They love ’em too.
For The Rock Stars in Your Life:
Energy Muse bracelets: my wrists are always bedecked with these bracelets. Psst..they work too!
Services Everyone Loves:
Gift certificates for tarot readings: you can’t go wrong with these popular stocking stuffers. Scroll down to find the gift certificate options – and be prepared to be everyone’s favorite Santa (this is so dope when you don’t have time to hit the mall!)
Q: What’s the perfect holiday gift for a business owner, freelancer, someone who’s self-employed? A: Get ‘em a subscription to The Astro-Biz Digest. It’s a weekly astrological forecast filled with important dates and details—especially for biz owners. (Be sure to scroll down to the “gift” option.)
Gift certificates for astrology readings: this past year, I got two readings – one from The People’s Oracle and one from Mecca Woods. Both were excellent. This is what a few lucky folks will be getting from me this year. You might want to snap up some readings for your fave people.
My Secret Source for Unique Gifts:
You can always find excellent astrology or tarot themed prezzies at Etsy. Just put tarot or astrology in the search bar and shazam! Loads of goodies to score! (My favorite Etsy shop is Gem and Point for stunning crystal jewelry.)
Just for fun! (Psst…knowing your lover’s Venus might give you hints on what to get them for the holidays!
